Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat and spent 1999 living in Vietnam.

Share with me my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Hopefully you find my observations helpful in your own adventures.

  1. I think it’s harsh for you to say about women having jobs. Would you pay for her bills? It’s easy to travel when all expenses paid. She may want you so much and would be willing to at least meet half way but you guys seem to want a jobless filipina just to go on travels with you lol

  2. How about this, she got a body count more than the United States Army that she somehow forgot to tell you when she was describing herself to you in the beginning of the relationship

  3. Been married a widow about 9 years 11 yrs FRIENDSHIP we emailed for 2 years and got to know each other on another level, I sponsored our 3 daughters education and medical plus excursions. Our mutual friend would present the accounts and I would pay them, my wife’s parish priest is my friend as is the LGU Mayor.

    If your looking for a teenager or young girl you have big issues especially if the man is much older, western men are prime as they are cashed up.

    Because I was previously a missionary and I make a point of studying the culture in went in eyes wide open and informed.

    Another good indicator of a successful match is quite often marrying a widow who deeply loved her husband. After many years of being a widow who never dated as she is very religious we met on a social community discussion site.

    My beautiful wife is a Mindanoan, raised in a Moslem region and the strict moral code is deeply infused into the provence of Sultan Kuderat even for people of other faiths.

    My lovely wife is very educated and a pillar of her community, speaks about 4 languages and her English is exceptional.

    If you want to play around with young women you will end up frustrated and disappointed. You can’t put an old head on pretty young shoulders, my wife has known loss and sorrow and knew a good match when we decided on marriage.

    Our daughters are all educated and 2 are still in Manila studying and working hard to establish their future careers.

    I truly admire the Filipino family culture and willingly support extended family and have seen them graduate University and College…. helped extended family with medical issues and kept a roof over some of their heads during the pandemic.

    When we go home my wife treats them to lots of love and pasalubong, family get togethers are fun lots of pancit, rice and roast pork lichon, watermelon fruit and dozens of bottles of Red Horse.

    You just need to look in the right places to meet good women.

    God bless the Philippines my second home.
