Living v. Visiting the Philippines: Finding Single Filipinas

Written by Gilbert. Posted in Filipina Wives

Coming to the Philippines is a great experience, will bring your life change, insight, and even potentially meeting the Filipina woman of your dreams.

Believe it or not, it isn’t hard to meet good people, or a fine Filipina to turn your life around and make you happier than you’ve ever been before.

The Philippines is a huge country, full of various cultures, sub-cultures, and different environments – such as beaches, mountainous regions, and small to major cities. And with this comes great variation to the types of women you can date, and friends you can meet.

Together, this all positively contributes to the life you create for yourself in visiting or living here short-term, long-term, or permanently.

Ultimately, just like traveling and immersing yourself into a new country and culture most places in the world, it will come with its various advantages and disadvantages.

However, we are confident that the pros far outweigh the cons, and what you want it to be is what you’ll get. You’ve heard people say it before, and it’s true, life is indeed what you make of it – and this is none the less true when visiting, or immersing yourself into Asian, or in this case Filipino culture.

There are several parts to successfully, and happily living a life in the Philippines, no matter the length of time, and should equally come with different expectations. Let’s review these different areas together, and explore what to expect, and how to maximize your experience – no matter the nature of your visit.

Determining Length of Stay: Meeting Filipinas

Whether you’re interested in visiting Angeles City, Philippines, or the beaches of Boracay, the metropolitan city of Manila, or seeing the “Chocolate Hills” (Hershey Kisses as they’re called) of Bohol region, your length of stay will dictate a lot.

For single men that are only looking to visit for one to two months maximum, it’s important to understand that this little amount of time will make it relatively difficult to find a Filipina, in most instances, that’s really looking for a serious relationship, or to be anything more than friends.

And while there are other ways to find sexy and single Filipinas, many foreigners visit the Philippines for other activities too, which helps to meet women along the way – such as surfing, the beaches, zip-lining, or exploring a (dormant) volcano or two!

If you’re serious about meeting classy, single, educated, and friendly Filipinas, though, the mall, local festivals, and even simple cafes are a great way to do it. Going to bars is a hit or miss deal, and depending on your intentions can bring you much heartache.

So, in the case of three months or less it really becomes a gamble as to whether or not, and what types of Filipinas you might meet that would be interested in a meaningful, long-term relationship.

By going this route, you can also expect to likely spend a lot more money than most locals, or long-term tourists and fellow foreigner (residents) – as they’ve taken the time to get to know the people, current conversion rates, prices, and the “norms”, so to speak.

However, should you decide that you want to “get in with the locals”, focus on making new Filipino friends, and learning the language and culture you’ll greatly increase your chances of meeting more sweet, passionate, loyal, and fun single Filipinas.

Also, getting to know your local community, and perhaps not traveling around as much will also help you observe and experience how other foreigners live here, and gain both advice and firsthand experience with dating Filipinas outside of the “bar” or party scene – which while some men enjoy, not all find their true love so to speak by going this route.

Three Types of Foreigners v. Three Types of Filipinas

So you’ve decided you want to stay short-term, or even possibly live in the Philippines in hopes of finding your one true soul mate, and want to better understand the different types of women and foreigner residents here? Then read on.

Typically, there are about three different types of foreigners here, each equally contributing to the culture, appeal or desirability, and often reputation of fellow foreigners coming to visit, date, and possibly marry a Filipina.

The first kind is your “average” tourist that perhaps visits for a few weeks, to about two months maximum. This also includes those that come back for a repeat, or “short-term” visits. They can be quite knowledgeable, but are often more so here to mingle, enjoy the nightlife scene, and hit the bars.

Your second kind of foreigner is the “long term visitor” that may have come here with the intentions of only a short-term stay, but have elected to live here 6 months or more, and have engrained themselves into the local community.

And while this type of foreigner may still often hit the bars a lot and enjoy the nightlife, beaches, and other tourist activities, many grow tired of this and seek a more meaningful, long-term relationship with a Filipina.

These foreigners also often work part time, or “on the side”, although some will be much more open – or “secretive” – about others than this, depending on your relationship.

The third kind of foreigner that you’re bound to come across at one point or another on your next visit to the Philippines are either those that have retired, intend to retire, or collect a pension and have settled down permanently.

Often, this will also include the group of foreigners – including women in some instances- that have gotten married, or decided to move to and open up to run a business here in the Philippines.

Three Types of Filipinas: How to Tell Them Apart

Next, up, we’ve broken down the different types of Filipinas you’re bound to come across, how to tell them apart, and what roles they play in the “dating-scene”.

The first time of Filipinas you’re likely to come in contact with, much in the same order as foreigners, is those that are of a younger age, or more “free” that enjoy going to the bars, enjoying the nightlife, or even working at a bar.

There are plenty of wonderful women to be met in this category, including those that work in a bar, but it’s absolutely a gamble – and also not something we want you to focus too much on. Most of these Filipinas speak basic, to fluent English. Moving on to the next category.

The second type of Filipina you’re likely to encounter are those that are either working full time, and or are students, and who often will speak English fluently. These women work in places like the mall, restaurants, cafés, or other modest jobs, and can make very good girlfriends or even wives.

They are typically excited to meet foreigners, and should not be very difficult to “woo” as far as dating goes, but, the longer you intend to or have already lived in the Philippines, the better.

Finally, the third type of Filipinas, albeit more rare unless you’re visiting or living out in a province, for example, Tarlac, Pangasinan, or Olongapo. These Filipinas are often much more conservative, have traditional cultural values, and can be very shy.

Many of them might also speak minimal to no English. Nonetheless, they too can make great wives, girlfriends, or even just really good friends. They are also, however, “hit or miss”, and again, depending on the amount of time you intend to visit or stay in the Philippines, the better chances you’ll have at dating, or possibly even one day marrying any of these single, sexy, loving Filipina beauties.

Extra Tip: Believe it or not, “simple”, small and local places like a “sari-sari” (convenience) store can be an excellent place to meet a nice, honest, and beautiful Filipina, or even a 7-11. It’s not too hard, and the more respect, time, and commitment you have, the better your chances are in the long-run.

Get a Filipina Wife on the Internet

Written by Gilbert. Posted in Filipina Wives

pretty-filipina-wifeHere in the Philippines, women trying to survive from growling stomachs and empty pockets invested in a sort of small-scale business with a capital of a fraction of a dollar.

Most women aged 18 years and above were seen in internet cafes of the towns and cities of the said country for hours of pressing the keyboards and talking on the microphone. In their monitors were the popular messengers and chatrooms of big Internet sites. And pop ups came popping trying to catch their attention and asking for their “asl”, a lingo term for age, sex and location.

I had a friend once and she told me he met a guy from the net. After days of chatting, this guy who’s an American sent her a few bucks and my friend was able to buy a new mobile phone which an ordinary student like me couldn’t afford.

It might be worth a try. But mine you, men are not qualified. Foreigners specifically Americans, Aussies and Britons were searching for the precious halves of their lives and their wanting women to complete these. Of course they’re men.

Filipino women were known in the world as overseas contract workers, nurses and domestic helpers. They’re hard-workers and trustworthy. But the best quality a foreigner might find from theseFilipinas is that they are sweet lovers. Filipinas are more submissive to their husbands and servants of her own home. They are more into making their husbands happy than their own selves.

Most Internet cafes had their businesses open for some years now because of the young guys playing on-line games and of course, Filipinas chatting with foreigners. At ten o’clock in the evening (morning in the states), the net surfing packages promoted by the café owners to lure more surfers started.

hot-filipina-beautySome café offers two dollars for an overnight of chatting and some retailed it at two cents an hour. These prices, though high for a common Filipina became affordable especially when they hear their “barkadas”(friends) met Americans or other foreigners.

The advantage of a common Filipina over other asian women is their knowledge of the language of a dollar-English. Though not fluent, but a commoner Filipino is able to write and speak and understand a sentence delivered in English. This tool made Filipinas equipped to be successful in this business. Though some insisted that what they’re doing is for excitement and love, but they could not take away from the doubters their true motive of the net dating games. Money.

But I’m not the perfect man to judge these women. I made some mistakes too. I just hope that it’s not a mistake for everybody to do these things because I think everybody, both the Filipinas and the foreigners were the true victims here. The women will be sacrificing the happiness of true love and the Foreigners will be investing money just for love.

However, in many instances, Filipinas really find true love in chatting with Foreign guys and vice versa. Maybe, one could not predict how love moves, and doing so in the internet is a mysterious work of love indeed.

Why You Should Find a Wife in The Philippines

Written by Gilbert. Posted in Filipina Wives

Men from across the globe gawk at the idea of being with an Asian woman for their obvious cultural values and stunning looks. But what a lot of men don’t realize—especially without visiting—is that Filipinas in particular are very naturally feminine, always taking great care of their bodies, how they smell, look, and feel to the touch.

Filipina women always dress to impress, have a great taste in perfumes (without racking up $100.00’s on big name brands like Versace), love to and take great pride in looking nice no matter where they’re going, and interestingly enough (as it’s significant) bathe often between 2-3 times per day because of the climate—and because they just love smelling fresh and being their best!

Unbeknownst to many men, the Philippines actually has over 2,000 inhabited islands, with 7 major islands, and over 13 languages! This leaves a magnitude of space for prospective loving, caring, passionate, and dedicated Filipina wives for you as a bachelor.

Filipinas Take Pride in their Appearance


Not only do Filipinas have aggressively and arguably dominant self-care in hygiene, but they also take pride in their physique—many running, eating smarter, and being very (holistically at times) nutritionally educated and aware, regardless of education level—as it’s often taught at home.

It’s typically uncommon to find or meet an overweight Filipina, especially in the major cities, such as Manilla, or Angeles City for example. This is a very attractive trait and reality, especially for western men, as some of the leading countries such as the United States are dominating the world in obesity-related illnesses and deaths—starting as young as their mid to late 20’s!

What Chasity Means to Filipinas

Even outside of religious dominance and presence in the Philippines, Filipinas seem to, in majority, take special pride in their virginity, and just lack of promiscuous behavior in general. In fact, many Filipinas will remain virgins into their 20’s, waiting for the right man to sweep her off her feet and marry!

Many western countries and cultures are not only more “open”, but seem to actually openly encourage promiscuousness—which can lead to a lot of unwanted variables, not to exclude STD’s, or sexually transmitted infections.

Filipinas Aren’t as Shy as You Think

In comparison to American and European women, for example, Filipina’s really aren’t all that shy, especially when it comes to meeting new friends that are foreigners or ‘courting’ such—as prospective husbands.

Western women on the other hand seem to lean more towards isolating or hiding themselves inside of their smart phones, even in heavily populated (social gathering) locations such as bars or parties—look at Tinder for example, and how easy and social-free “hookups” are now becoming across America and other major western countries.

Filipinas on the other hand are actually very outgoing, though of course naturally the most open when they’re with a friend, or family. Although, ultimately, the ratio of women to men here is outrageously in your favor—and being a foreigner just sweetens the pie and your level of desirability to the many Pinay women found throughout all the various islands!

Cultural Humility

Humility and culture seem to go hand-in-hand with most Filipinas, and is an extremely desirable personality trait for any man—but especially those coming from western countries.

Filipinas, are by nature, much more humble than other women across the globe as many come from severe financial hardship, a lack of opportunities, but most significantly a lack of exposure to materialism and the “fast life” as seen or experienced in major global cities—such as NYC for example.

Their sense and level of humility, in combination with their cultural values, make Filipina women real go-getters and extremely attractive to foreign men!

Any foreigner man would love the idea of having a wife that’s likely to be the best possible mom, cook, expert at taking care of the kids, and really keeping the house together—that is, as men are typically seen as the “bread winners” in the Philippines—although that isn’t to say that there aren’t plenty of go-getters and successful entrepreneurial women here.

In fact, plenty of Filipina women aspire to pursue and obtain college education, high-paying salaried jobs, and business opportunities wherever and however possible!

Ending on Religion

Last but not least, while the Philippines is a very “free” country and people are easily able to be whomever they like and believe in whatever they’d like, religion is definitely prevalent (although not ‘strict’ per say) in many major cities.

Most notably, Catholics seem to dominate many areas in terms of religion, along with Christians. Western and foreign men in general are inclined to value such spiritual characteristics in a woman, as this seems to be a diminishing quality in many western countries women in today’s modern world!

All in all, if you’re seeking a new relationship, with a mutually pleasurable give and take, someone who will be trustworthy and equally committed in making a future and family with, then a Filipina is just the right fit for you, and their elegant beauty will make the encounter and experience all the more incredible!
