That’s a somewhat basic, difficult lifestyle that most Filipinas would rather move away from if they can, given the chance. Why are foreigners the more desired option to a Filipina? She is already thinking about babies, having a family that will have needs for food, clothing, housing in the future.
It comes down to a common factor that all women take into account when choosing a lifelong mate. So it makes so much sense for a woman to find the most financially stable man she can have. They want a man who will be there, in love with them and not out cheating on her behind her back.
If you’re a man of modest means, just getting by on your pension or social security.. But you need to know what’s-what before you arrive and start charging around like a bull in a china shop interacting with them the way you did with Western or European women.
your age works in your favor and if you’re a gentleman, you are in-like-Flynn. Here you need to pay closer attention to the nuances of ‘’. When you are dating a Filipina, if you have any reservations about it going into a serious relationship, you better let her know soon or you will find yourself neck-deep in a river flowing quickly towards marriage.
they are a somewhat shy and conservative type of woman. You’ll find a bad apple in any group and every so often some Filipina turns out to be a ‘gold-digger’. I’ll take the Vegas odds that favor Filipina women as THE choice when looking for a faithful, loving wife that will rock your world. Here, usually when men/women are friends among Filipinos it is because they are somehow related in some way.
Not so in Angeles City which is pretty much a, how do you say.. The decent Filipinas will not initiate breaking the ice with you. Now, that can make for (again) some clashes in culture. Not just by blood either, because ‘bonding’ as family among non-family is a cultural phenomenon that is very common here.
Some of it near the OC, spent time at Newport Beach and later most of my beach time in San Diego at Mission Beach. But meeting and interacting with American Women has absolutely NOTHING to do with how you interact with Filipinas. I won’t reiterate the whole dating process, I’ve already covered that in my Single Life article previously in detail.
How about this: Your age and appearance is not their first concern. Women anywhere want security, love and affection from their man.

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.
Time and experience has brought today’s Filipina to a certain conclusion about men and it is this; “Younger men are less financially stable and more likely to cheat.
