Despite all the bad press against them, Filipino women have remained one of the most desired women among foreign men who want to marry traditional women, with “traditional” meaning the woman taking of the house and the men working to support the wife.
Although there are thousands of men who are married to Filipinas, there are many men out there who are still in the searching stage, although they’ve been using Filipino dating sites for two years or more. If this has been your experience, it might be that you are communicating in a way that turns of women from the Philippines instead of attracting them to you.
In this article, we will tell you about the three ways you should communicate with women from the Philippines so that they stay with you and not leave you out in the cold.
1. Don’t be “mahangin”
Mahangin literally means windy in Filipino, however, when you’re talking about a person, it actually means braggart. If there’s one thing about women from the Philippines, it is that they don’t like to be around men who are “mahangin”, for that matter, no woman regardless of her nationality ever likes to be with a man who brags too much.
Filipino women prefer to be with men who are down-to-earth and don’t make a big fuss about themselves. So, when you’re chatting with a Filipina online, make sure you’re not talking too much about yourself.
2. Don’t start the conversation with “poverty”
Despite what you may think, not all Filipino women are dirt poor. Many of then hold jobs and although their salaries might not be as high as women in the West (Filipinos typically earn $200 to $500 per month), it doesn’t mean that they have less pride and self-respect. The biggest complaint Filipino women have about foreign men is that many assume that all women in the Philippines are dirt poor and just want someone who will save them from a bad financial situation.
3. Honesty is not always the best policy
If you’re used to speaking your mind, you should be a little more careful. Filipinos are not used to feedback and will take it personally if you have a not so favorable opinion about the Philippines and Filipinos in general. There are other ways that you might be too honest, like telling a woman that she’s not the only one you’re dating online.
Although they’re aware foreign first date a lot of women at Filipina dating sites before settling for one woman, Filipinas are the jealous type and will be fuming inside if you talk about the other woman. If you have questions about a woman, go to websites that specialize in giving advice on how to date Filipino women.
In all, if you’ve been trying to Filipinas but have had no luck so far, maybe it’s time for you to take stock on how you’re communicating with these women. Even though they’re the friendliest people on Earth, they are still from a different culture and you need to communicate with them in a way that doesn’t invite trouble.
