The Modern Filipina - Smart, Sexy and Motivated to Marry a Foreign Guy
Today there are still many smart, sexy young Pinoy women that are happy to marry an older man from the US, the EU, or another Western country, but they don't want to be seen as simply accessories to their husbands.
In fact, like women in the other centers of international dating many Philippine women sign up for mail order bride agencies, because they are tired of the overwhelmingly male dominated culture of their homeland.
Many men from the Philippines are "Babaero" or playboys and will cheat on their girlfriends or wives any chance they get. It's simply part of the male culture and the women of the Philippines suffer for it. In all my travels I have never met so many single mothers, and the story is always the same...
My husband leave me for another woman! I hate Babaero!
Because of this dating in the Philippines moves at a little slower pace than in some other parts of the world. A sexy Philipina may be a little slower to give you her trust, but once she does, she will be very devoted to you for the rest of your life (as long as you treat her right).
And be forewarned guys. The concept of dating several women at once, as men may do in the Western world, is appalling to most of Filipina women.
Remember, these are often hardworking young ladies, many are trained as nurses, and they are not just looking for a rich foreign guy to cover them in diamonds and furs, though I'm sure most wouldn't object.
Filipina dating is perhaps a little different from other International dating hotspots. Most of these ladies really are looking for a chance to meet a decent guy and become a happy Catholic housewife. So, if you are looking for a sweet, sexy, realistic, young bride, then maybe a Filipina girlfriend is right for you.
Filipina Mail Order Brides - A Long History of Happy Marriages
The Philippines is the birth place of the modern global dating movement. Filipinas were the first modern mail order brides back in the 1970's and the country is still a hot spot for men seeking foreign brides.
Women in the Philippines tend to be short, sweet, and very feminine. They can appear as Asian, Latina and some even look European, but most women are an ethnic mix that is difficult to generalize but makes for some of the most beautiful women in the world.
Obviously, those are attractive traits, but there are other cultural advantages to pursuing a Filipina for a girlfriend or wife:
- Women from The Philippines nearly all speak English and they have a pretty good grasp of Western culture. That means you that you don't have to spend as much time explaining the basics of life in America to a Filipina.
- The Philippines is VERY Westernized, so there are usually very few social issues to overcome when a woman from the Philippines marries a man from a Western country.
- The Philippines has one of the largest Expat populations of men from the USA, Canada and The EU. It's a great place to retire!
Religion and Philippines Brides - Catholic to the Core!
Everyone is different and generalizing about national characteristics is one of the biggest mistakes that you can make in international dating, but one thing you should know about Filipinas is that they are probably going to take their religion very seriously, especially if there are any children involved.
This is one of the best (and maybe only) arguments for meeting your Filipina girlfriend's mom, because if her mother is a wild-eyed pre-Reformation Catholic then that is probably what your girl will be like in twenty or thirty years too.
Of course, in twenty or thirty years you probably won't care, but you can never tell. Also, I am sure for Catholic men a Filipinaa bride is a real attraction. Well, if that is your take then you, sir are the proverbial right man in the right place, because there are tons of very conservative Filipina ladies out there for you to choose from.
Generally, these conservative Filipina ladies are going to have the same cultural and religious views as the most conservative elements of the American Catholic Church, but they seem to take veneration of the saints and some of the other traditional elements of Catholic worship farther than is common in the United States or Europe.
Filipina Dating Sites
The best place, beyond a doubt, to see the hottest Filipinas is Cherry Blossoms. They're one of the oldest dating sites on the web and they offer a first rate service. Check out their website or read our Cherry Blossoms Review if you want to know more about their services.
A Foreign Affair and Asian Beauties also have a bunch of hot Filipina on their site, and many women who are serious about marriage congregate to A Foreign Affair, but you just can't beat Cherry Blossoms for the sheer volume of Filipina dating profiles.
Cherry Blossoms really has become the Go-To site for all hot young Filipinas looking to snag a foreign boyfriend, so I would start your search there.
Another great site is Filipinacupid - but I would only recommend using this site if you will be traeling to the Philippines as many of the girls on the site are not looking for as serious a relationship as the ones metioned above.
Philippines Romance Tours
If you are looking to meet women in the Philippines one of the easiest ways of achieving this is through one of the romance tours that international dating agencies can arrange. On a romance tour you will be exposed to a variety of different Filipino women as well as seeing some of the sights of the various cities the tours take place in.
While you may be able to meet a Filipina at a bar, as a westerner you will usually fare better if the arrangements have already been made through an agency. It is important to remember that most women in the Philippines are typically fairly conservative Catholics, in particular the ones that make for the best wives.
These types of women are usually difficult to pick up at clubs and bars as they will be less likely to welcome your approach. However on a romance tour you will have no such problem as they will be actively looking for a western man to date and possibly even marry.
One of the biggest problems with marrying a Philipina is that you are not just marrying her - effectively, you are marrying her entire family! It's not unusual for your new Filipina wife to have 5-10 brothers and sisters, a mother who is not working and an absentee father.
The Philippines has no health care system, terrible social security and an extremely corrupt government so it usually falls on the older daughters to support the entire family.
But before you go running for the hills, you should know that the cost of living in The Philippines is EXTREAMLY low, so this may only end up costing you a couple hundred dollars a month, and is probably nothing compared to the last loan you made to your Cousin Bob so he could buy that "sure thing" stock he heard about down at the local watering hole!
