1) Smart. This does not mean you have to be bookish or geeky. You don’t even  have to be a genius to get a Filipino girl’s attention (although, so what if you are, right? That can work to your favor if you know how to play your cards right). But to a Filipino woman, it’s important that you have enough common sense. To her, that’s being smart.

2) Funny. Who doesn’t want a man who can make a woman laugh out loud? If you have what it takes to tickle her funny bones, you stand a great chance of winning her heart. But if being funny does not come naturally to you, don’t try too hard. That can be a huge turn-off. Well, of course it doesn’t mean, you can’t try to be funny at all. Some jokes can be learned, after all, but don’t sound as if you have copy-pasted your lines from somewhere. You have to deliver them spontaneously and naturally. For many Filipino women,guys who are funny are sexy.

3) Romantic. Yes, you have to show off your romantic side if you want to get serious with a Filipino woman. Some Filipino women love their men to be “fearless” when showing their love and affection, but others hate public displays of affection. Either way, you have to let your woman know that you think of her constantly. Now, this is where your creativity will show. You can send her love messages, surprise her with visits and little gifts, and so on.

4) Independent. Filipino women are not damsels in distress; nonetheless, they would certainly want their men to be independent, men who could stand on their own feet, men who could defend them, men who could be their partners in raising a family. It goes to say that men pursuing Filipino women must be financially stable and emotionally mature.

5) Respectful. Respect is a virtue that’s highly regarded and desired in a country like the Philippines. Respect can be shown in different ways:

* addressing the elderly accordingly
* calling people by their names
* dressing appropriately
* not forcing your girl to do what only you want under the circumstances
* not saying mean things but instead criticisizing constructively
* not abusive of one’s own body (doesn’t drink or smoke excessively)
* does not hurt, physically and emotionally, his girl

6) Doesn’t gamble. Gambling can reduce one’s fortune in seconds. The gambler will not stop until all the family’s fortune is lost. Filipino women who think about their future will not want to go into a relationship with a gambler.

7) Family-oriented. Filipino women are by nature family-oriented. They value their family more than anything in the world. If you want a Filipina for a wife, you must not only learn to embrace and welcome her family (her parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, and so on) but be ready also of the responsibilities that come with being a husband to her. You must make your family with her your priority. Spend quality time with her and your children with her. And always see to it that their needs (financial and otherwise) are met fully.

8) God-Fearing. Many Filipino women are raised as Catholics, hence they are God-fearing, and as such they would wish the men in their life to be God-fearing also. Even if you are not a Catholic, do show your respect to her religion while practicing your own faith.

So, do you think you have all these qualities that Filipino women look for in a man? Well, then, start looking for a Filipina woman who can give more meaning to your life.

Why Americans And Other Foreigners Love To Marry Filipinas As Their Wife And Partner?

Indeed, what is it with Filipinas that Americans and other foreigners love to make them their partners for life?

Besides possessing attractive physical features (brown skin, silky black hair, lovely chinita eyes, curvaceous and rounder figure), Filipina women are said to make good wives.

The reasons could be as follows:

1) Filipina women are religious. The Philippines is largely a Catholic nation and most Filipinos, especially the women, make time to attend church service on Sunday and on holy days of obligation, and pray the Rosary every day. Being religious, Filipino women value the teachings of the church especially when it comes to love, marriage, and relationship. Being religious, Filipino women are forgiving, and will do everything to keep their marriage, even if they have been bruised and hurt many times already. But of course, this should not be a reason for foreigners to abuse their Filipino wives because a woman can only take so much. While indeed they are forgiving, they are not stupid. And this brings us to the second reason why Americans and other foreigners love to marry Filipinas.

2) Filipina women are smart. Most Filipinas are educated and smart. They can manage a home as well as the family’s finances. What more can a guy ask for, right? Moreover, and this brings us to the third reason why Americans love to marry a Filipino women …

3) Her family is a Filipino woman’s priority. This is another good reason why Americans and other foreigners love to marry Filipinas as their wife and partner. A Filipina wife will do everything in her power for her family. Even if she is a career person herself, she will make time in order to facilitate the needs of her family first before her own needs. Before she leaves for work, she will make sure that there’s food on the table for her kids, and that her husband’s clothes are readied. Essentially, a Filipina woman’s motto is family first before self.

4) Filipino women are good communicators. Having been under American rule for a time, the ability to speak and understand English is one thing that sets Filipino women from their Asian counterparts, like the Thais, for instance. Filipino women are among the best communicators out there, so the language barrier is not one of those you will have to worry about greatly. More importantly, they understand the language of the heart.

5) Cultural differences. Cultural differences can be a barrier to any relationship, but they can make any relationship interesting as well. As far as culture is concerned, the Philippines and America are like day and night. For example, in America, people leave their homes to live independently when they turn 18. You don’t often see the same situation in the Philippines. In many Filipino homes, you will see several generations living under the same roof. In America, most people live together even if they are not yet married; in the Philippines, many still consider pre-marital sex and living together a taboo. In America, time is gold; in the Philippines, there is something that’s called “Filipino Time”, which means things don’t always start on time! It will take time and many challenges to fuse these cultural differences to benefit both parties, but for Americans and foreigners determined to marry Filipinas, this can be a pretty exciting period in their lives.

6) Filipino women are sweet and loving. Most Filipino women are malambing (soft spoken) and reserved, complementing the Western guy’s rather loud ways. Filipina women are also loving beings and this they show in a variety of ways that foreigners love.

Physically, white guys and Filipino women make an interesting pair. Where the former is white, the latter is morena (brown-skinned); and while the white guy is more than six feet tall, the Filipino woman is only 5 feet and 2 inches on the average. But these differences do not stop white guys from pursuing a relationship with a Filipino women. After all there are plenty of other reasons why Americans and other foreigners love to marry Filipinas as their wife and partner that go beyond skin deep.

What is the Process to Marry a Girl From the Philippines and Bring Her to the United States?

We’ve heard it said all too often, “A Filipina’s worth everything!” Indeed, many foreign men will go through all the trouble to marry a Filipina. But really, it can’t all be that troublesome with the availability of tools and information online. Following are some guides should you decide to make the next move following a successful courtship and marriage proposal:

First, and foremost, you need to present proof that you have legal capacity to contract marriage, presuming of course that the girl you want to marry is beyond 24 already, otherwise the first thing that needs to be done is to get parental consent (if the girl is between 18-21 years old) or parental advice (if the girl is between 22-24 years old). Granting that is not the case or has already been taken cared of, make an appointment with the US embassy in Manila or Consular Agency in Cebu  to execute an Affidavit in Lieu of Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage. You will be asked to present the printout of the confirmation of your appointment, as well as your passport, documents proving that you are free to marry and other relevant documents, so make sure you have these ready when you visit either office. Payment of the filing fee may be done in cash or through credit card.

Having hurdled that, you can now apply for a marriage license at the Office of the Civil Registrar in the municipality or city where you or your fiancee is residing, bringing with you the Affidavit in Lieu of Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage, your US passport, documents showing you are single or free to marry.

With a Philippine marriage license, you can get married to your Filipina fiancee before a judge, mayor, or anyone who is authorized by the Philippine government to administer the ceremony.

It has to be understood that your marriage to a Filipina does not grant her eligibility to enter the United States. It is necessary that you, a US citizen, file a Petition for Immigrant Visa (also known as I-130) with the local USCIS (that’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services). The process can take up to two years, however, and that means you will not be able to take your wife to the United States till then.

A shorter route to get your wife to the United States when you have already filed the I-130 Visa is to get her  the K3 Visa (otherwise known as the Non-immigrant Visa for Spouse). This normally takes around eight months to a year to process. Of course, it is understood that you are qualified to file the petition in this case. Needless to say, you need to present proofs of your US citizenship and your wife’s FIlipino citizenship, valid IDs issued by the government, your marriage license, and some photos of you as a couple.

Once your wife receives her K3 Visa, she may now enter the “Land of the Free” where she can move to change her non-immigrant status to immigrant.

If one year still sounds like a long time, you may want to consider getting a Fiancee Visa (I-129F), which can be done in just about six months or even less. The Fiancee Visa a non-immigrant type of visa that will allow you to take your fiancee to the United States and get married there. The Fiancee Visa is conditional, however. It requires that marriage must take place within 90 days from arrival to the US.

But as they say, “it’s more fun in the Philippines”, and that includes getting married. Indeed, for many Filipina women (and foreign men), there’s nothing like getting married in the Philippines, where not just the whole family, but the entire barangay, can witness the proceedings. Getting married in the Philippines is an experience you really wouldn’t want to miss. From the preparation right to the reception, are funny and memorable moments you are sure to cherish for the rest of your life.

Time flies, anyway, so one year or two years of waiting may only seem like a long time, but really it’s not. Besides, there’s the internet to keep you connected until you can be together physically in the United States.
