Hi everyone! I recently started to use Filipina Cupid and it seems to me that 90% of the girls that I've chatted with are scammers. They chat you up a bit, then give a sob story, and then ask for money. One girl said she was an airline stewardess and that she travels to LA quite a bit. The first day I started chatting with her, she said she was going to Vancouver and asked if I wanted to meet the next day. She then asked me for money for her fare and I was like, WTF? Don't you have free fare? She kept asking me to send her money through Paypal so that she can book. I already knew she was scamming me.
I've also tried to sign up on DateinAsia but my profile kept getting rejected for some unknown reason.
My question for you guys is what sites have you guys used and what have your experiences been like? I just want to meet a beautiful girl from the motherland.
I used Filipino Cupid when I found Lea. I did find a great match in Lea using Filipino Cupid, but there were a lot of scammers to deal with along the way. I did find one girl first before Lea that I thought was the one, but I found out that her so called "little brother" or "friend" was really her secret love and she kept asking me if I could get him a work visa near me so she had a friend when she moved here. Delete after that revealed itself. Then I went through the profiles again and picked about 6 girls that I liked their profiles. My search included 32- 40 yrs old (wanted a mature person), outgoing type person (i love all sorts of things outdoors, hiking, fishing, hunting ect.) and lastly someone that I thought was a family person. Anyone that asked me for money or sob story....delete..... I was upfront with the girls that I was talking to about 6 to see who was the best match. It was easy to take away 4 of the girls. One kept calling me Michael. My name is Kevin, lol. A couple asked me for money...delete... I narrowed it down to two girls. Lea kept showing to me that she was the one. Never asked for money. She was always nice, polite and funny. She was always available to talk when not working. Her profile said she like fishing... big bonus.....
I now am grateful that I found Lea. I don't think I could have gone around dating in the Phills without knowing anyone. First the culture shock. Second I only had a 2 week vacation.
Meeting Lea at the airport was a memorable experience that I think about often. Vacationed with her for 2 weeks in April 2015. Came back in October 2015 to visit and proposed. Married in January 2016. Took seven moths to get her Spousal Visa. In September 2016, I went back and went to her embassy interview and brought her home.
My best friend, my love, my asawa ko Lea Camara.
In my assessment dating sites the world over are horrendously prone to scammers, regardless of country of origin or target audience.
Dating sites are aimed at one thing - making money for those who start them!
One could say the same thing about the many 'Russian' styled dating sites as well.
I've never been a fan of dating sites - having said that I met my asawa online, albeit via a friend at the time who said 'start talking to her' - and I did 🙂
Even so, conducting a relationship, or indeed sowing the seeds for one online (in any form) is plagued with danger and issues from the get-go. As we all know, a person can be (even with cam, voice calls etc) whoever they want to be online - and tell (and show) you only what they want you to know and see.
Filipinas are very adapt at conversing online and working the field. No matter how innocent and shy she may appear, you can bet your sack she is not talking to only you and you alone. You would be a total fool to believe so. Even if you go there and meet for three months, this still does not tell you all about the person, it might give you a much better idea, but Filipinas have the upper hand here and they know it. Your in a country where (typically) you do not speak the lingo nor understand it, so you are immediately at a loss there. And things are very different in the Philippines to the way things are done in Western countries - so it is very easy to brush certain situations off as 'this is the way it is done in the Philippines' - it is a very easy and convenient get out of jail card for them and they know how to use it.
Some (not all) Filipinas lack any essence of basic honesty and decency - they can and will lie directly to your face. For some it is just a game to find the foreigner with the biggest bank account and the smallest brain.
Tread carefully on dating sites.
