I’ve dated Filipinos before and was even in a long-term relationship with one!
It’s pretty annoying when people say that “if you can’t find a good Filipino then just look for a foreign man.” This is also stupid; there are plenty of amazing, loving and faithful Filipino men all over the world.
Aha, so being warm and hospitable and loving towards your partner means that you’re a slave? 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.
Ok, so they have more ‘free countries’ than us, but it balances out, because when they pay, they pay big!
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!
If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll meet a lot of travelers – mostly European, and being a backpacker you shouldn’t expect another backpacker to take you to an expensive restaurant – oh and he’s British btw.
After few months of just keeping in touch on facebook while I continued my solo backpacking, Jon and I decided to be officially together, and we’re now together for almost two years!
We both want to buy land to build our very own yoga resort in the Philippines.
In fact, Jon keeps asking me about how he can get a permanent resident’s visa in the Philippines.
