Beautiful inside and out, what more could a man ask for?How about this: Your age and appearance is not their first concern. Women anywhere want security, love and affection from their man.
I’ll give a good ‘for instance’ from my own personal experience. It’s very common here for Filipinas to refer to a non-relative as their ‘cousin’ or ‘sister’, ‘Auntie’ or ‘Big Brother’.
A few years ago, while living on Mactan, I met a lovely young Filipina named Steff. She has two young kids and works two jobs to provide for them. But knowing what I know about the differences in culture, just to be safe I have let her know (’. But to most Filipinas in the smaller cities and especially in the provinces, it’s almost equivalent to taking some girl to Rodeo Drive for dinner on a first date.
And yes, It’s true that there are plenty of great looking women from L. “In California or any other major city like Dallas, New York, Miami, San Francisco, etc.
you may see twenty, thirty ‘hot’ looking women as you go about your daily business. Then those first dates, if it even goes past the initial meet-up at Starbucks. Unless you want the convenience factor but then you have to deal with a high number of scammers who are just looking for money. For one thing, foreigners are viewed as more desirable, so you’ve got that going for you right off the bat.
I suppose no other issue strikes closer to one’s personal life when adjusting to another culture like that of inter-personal relationships; ie – meeting women here in the Philippines.
It’s a classic clash of East meets West so consider this a ‘heads up’ of sorts to you guys who plan to come here and start meeting all these lovely, beautiful Filipina women. there are a LOT of them...” I’ve lived in Southern California all my life. They’re both female, but the similarity ends there.
But believe me, as a person who has spoken with so many, many single men and women.. In regards to meeting Filipinas specifically Online, there’s an article devoted to that here. Well, I checked with a governmental statistics site and it has nothing to do with the ratio of men-to-women. For another thing, the unemployment rate here has hit male-oriented jobs the hardest leaving many Filipino men without work.
the whole ‘dating scene’ is a convoluted and frustrating game. As I walk through any given part of the island I notice that almost 70% of the jobs held inside the large stores and malls are held by young, attractive, mostly single women under the age of 30.
To the point that she knows how long I’ve been with my girlfriend and I have even offered to help her find her own boyfriend online. Now, thanks to the Net and the sharing of new ideas into the Philippines..
If I were not to do that, in this culture the simple act of grabbing a bite to eat on her way to work could very easily be mistaken as a cue to moving on to meet her parents. there are ‘some’ young women, like Steff, who are open-minded to the idea of having a ‘good friend’ with no further expectations involved. BUT, you gotta make clear to them (repeatedly) that you are just-friends or else you’ll be sending the wrong signals. Some of the Filipina women here enjoy the company of the gay or transgender men because they are usually a lively bunch and (usually) have no sexual expectations from the women.
What they want is the situation their friends have who are married to an older man who loves them and is home every night. That’s a subjective question and each person has their own idea of what makes for a ‘beautiful’ woman.
