The Top Five Tips To Successfully Date Filipinas
1. Do NOT send money for whatever reason
While majority of Filipinas are decent, there are women out there who date foreign men for a living. While there are many ways of scamming, the most common is for a woman to date several men at the same time and ask them for small amounts of money.
They often solicit sympathy from these men by offering sob stories such as having a sick mother and a host of other reasons. Do yourself a favor and be a little cold-hearted at Philippine sites.
2. Do not commit until you’ve met in person
While anyone can tell you anything while chatting, people can and do assume a different persona online and may even look differently in person. So if you don’t want any surprises about your Filipina (for example, your online girlfriend’s personality is very different in person), make sure you know each other flesh and bone BEFORE committing to each other in a relationship.
3. Do check if she’s single
It is true that there are Filipina women who still sign up with Filipina dating sites although they are already married. Many of these women are truly separated from their husbands, however, because there’s no divorce in the Philippines, it’s impossible for them to become legally single again, UNLESS if they file for the annulment of their marriage, which often takes two to three years (and a lot of money) to complete.
If a woman puts “Divorced” in her profile at sites and yet she’s only lived in the Philippines all her life and hasn't had her marriage annulled, chances are she’s still legally single.
4. Do check her family background
Although you cannot judge a woman’s character through her family, you will know what you will be dealing with when you get married. Take note that Filipinos have an extended family system, and the son-in-law does become part of the family after the wedding night.
If your Filipina girlfriend has overbearing parents, you can be sure you’ll be dealing with overbearing in-laws.
5. Do make her fall in love with you
Of course, all instances of online dating should lead you to being in a loving relationship with a woman. And you get there by doing your best to make her fall in love with you. Put yourself out there and express your feelings. Tell your own life story. And yes, send her flowers and chocolates.
