Related Article: Are you planning to travel solo? Note: This is based on my personal experience and life story. Yes, there are perhaps some Filipinas dating foreigners who have this reason but not in most cases! I was already travelling on my own long before I met Jonathan well, I met Jonathan while travelling! We both want to buy land to build our very own yoga resort in the Philippines. Also, if you travel in mostly Asian countries, having a Filipino passport has way more advantage than his, he has to pay more than me!
Why do you care? If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again! I even had five freelance jobs at the same time in Hanoi, Vietnam as we wanted to save more than ever!
I taught English, yoga classes to children and even handled the Marketing Department of a western-owned company while in Vietnam, oh did I mention that I won a Vietnamese reality TV show? He works, I work. He saves, I save. Equal partnership! I want to be modest here, but straight to the point. Well, if you think so, shame on you! We both became yoga teachers and Ayurveda massage therapists because of my crazy idea of supporting our long term travels. All of my teaching, volunteering and freelancing jobs have been through my own research, resourcefulness, and commitment.
Well, hello! Again, it may happen in some cases, but before marrying their Filipina wife, the foreigner must already have met the family, right? My parents are both Professional; my younger sister is also a Dentist while my younger brother is about to finish his University degree.
I wonder if these people ever stop to consider that these feelings and actions are returned by the man. British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.
Most of them leave home at the age of 18 and up until then they do household chores; guys and girls! We share the cleaning in our house, but funnily Jon is better and faster at it than I am! Young western kids often have jobs when they are growing up, not because the family is poor, but to earn some of their own money and to get some real-life experience and responsibility before leaving school.
Not all white people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation. Western countries have a range of incomes and living standards just like we do. If everyone was rich, who would clean the streets, or do menial tasks that no one else wants to do? Ahh western-style economics, making sure we always have someone poor enough to sweep the streets! The only real difference is the higher value of their currency in the world, which just makes their own countries very expensive to live in and other countries cheaper to visit!
But this only works if they earn money in one of the expensive countries. There are good and bad in every country; nationality has very little to do with it!
Again, maybe some Filipinas marry out of desperation, but this could happen in any country, not just in the Philippines. We all know that most of the stars in the Philippines are half and half, perhaps we can make the next Anne Curtis, Sam Milby, and Alden Richards. Cheers to all Independent Women out there!

Actually most Filipinas are not doing that well and money is the chief motivation to pursuing a relationship with a foreigner unless you choose to willingly play that down as not being that prevalent. The Filipina wife is not the issue — she will stand by her man and do all she can to solve problems. And age, see medical bills below. Filipino kids are brought up to feel guilt incredible guilt, really if they are not taking care of their parents in particular and this care risks very quickly changing from the child your wife visiting with food to the Western husband being told to send money — and lots of it.
This will become a conflict area in The parents will never love you understandably as you more often than not will take their child to the West but they will love your money and work the wife like nuts to feel guilty about not sending enough. I bought the family a new taxi car, renovated the house and sent designer clothes by ship…. We nearly broke up over this of course.
If the parents are old take into account probable medical bills and a total insistence you will pay — the bills are ridiculous due to every test possible being taken of course. Go too far and she will choose a life in poverty with them over you. They call it noble, I call it awful and selfish parenting. Sorry my post reads negatively — I have said nice things too — but I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to clear the above area as best you can before marrying.
You may well think your wife would never take money from your account or demand you pay bills and send gifts to Mum and Dad. She will. All you can and should do it talk it through and get some hard agreements in place before it all unfolds and gets out of hand. I will go straight forward. In May I went to the Philippines to visit my Filipina chatmate after around one year of communication exchanging thought. When we met at the airport, it was like Love was waiting for us.
We fell in love crazy and it was a paradise for us. After a while, we started to quarrel due to different ways of thinking regarding matters of life. Of course its a long story, but although we had our differences this blazing flame kept on glowing in our hearts.
The relationship was on and off until we finally separated in Jan. However, despite we were living apart this flame never got extinguished. In fact, I had a business meeting in manila on Dec. While over there, I thought of sending her a greeting message as a friend.
To my surprise, she left her work and never looked back and wanted to greet me in person. Her employer warned her that she might either lose her job, cut off her salary and make her pay a penalty.
She travelled 5 hours on the bus after agreeing to meet at Glorietta2 main gate. She arrived and waited for me for one hour due to heavy traffic jam in Makati. But, when we met we realized that we have a true love relationship never based on convenience or getting a visa or such. It was pure love after one year of separation. Now we are together for good knowing that we belong to each other regardless of any benefits. Finally, myself and my GF Yulanda we believe we have a long love story worth for a romantic Holywood movie, and I wouldnt exchange her for any woman in the world.
In fact, I wish all foreigners who are after a filipina get lucky and find one like her as I did. Thats my opinion about good filipinas. I mst one on eris she is in davo city. We recently started dating but on jan 16th shebasked if i could help her eith a dslr camera she said she was at her parents for a funeral. She said she didnt have the funds because she gave her fakily koney for farm. She started ignoring and now missed her opportunity to go back home jan 30th for her moms bday.
She said she loves me but now the cinversation just falls flat for hours. Befor though we were talking alot all day. I been married to an Arab man from Jordan for almost tree years now and before he come here in Philippines I have already my own home but he never knew about it when he knew me through online dating, less than 1month he wanted to marry me and live together here in Philippines also he put up business here in my own hometown town for our good future, so far our business I considered it as a successful because we help each other, respect, and understand each other.
Hi I am new to this meeting people online like facebook whatsapp and there are many more. I was told there was a dating site called Scout. I thought it would not hurt to check it out. As a resullt I started up a conversation with a women from the phillipines on the site. We have been chatting now for about over 3 mths. The conversation came up about vacation. I said to her that I have never did any traveling before and was considering to this year. She mentioned I should vacation in the phillipines and that we could visit the many island and beaches.
We seem to be on the same page as our views and values. I just turned 61 my wife here in Canada passed away almost 1 year ago and I am wanting to meet someone for companionship and she is looking for the same.
She has said she is looking for a relationship with the right person. She is 54 and I she was married and it did not work out I did not endulge her much on the reasons or why. We have shared pic and videos back and forth and she seems to be very transparent and sincere. She sugested that we could spend some time together in Thialand and then visit a few of the islands in the Phillipines with some of her family. We seem to many of the same values and she it looking for a relationship and to find someone to share life and grow older together.
I am starting to have feelings towards her and I think she is feeling the same. The only real concern I have is it is said go by your gut feeling I mine is saying go.
