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.

Do Filipino Girls Get Jealous Too Easily?

Jealousy is an  emotion that can be defined in various ways,  but in a relationship, jealousy is a sign of feeling insecure or fear of losing someone you love deeply to a third party. Now, there are different reasons why a girl would nurse such feelings, but surely, these reasons would not have anything to do with being a Filipina (or not).

But what does necessitate the question, in the first place? Why would it matter for anyone, presumably a foreigner, if a Filipino girl gets jealous too easily or not? It could be that the foreigner does not want a jealous girlfriend or it could also be that the foreigner wants to have his girl’s full attention and he is wondering how hard it would be to make her feel jealous so he could have his love and affection. This is something called “reverse psychology” which can work to one’s benefit or against.

At a certain level, jealousy can be healthy and even necessary for a relationship to survive, but too much jealousy can ruin a relationship, and so knowing what makes a Filipina girl jealous can help you get out of a sticky situation. So what would make a Filipina girl jealous?

1) Not spending quality time with her. No girl in a relationship would want to be left all by herself for long. Indeed, what’s the point of being in a relationship when you can’t be together most of the time, right? It’s pretty normal for any girl to be jealous when a guy prefers to do something else with his friends (or with another girl in particular) to being with her, more so if that’s not the case when the relationship started.

2) Not remembering important occasions. Filipino girls are not after material things, but it gives them joy if the love of their life are able to surprise them with “little” gifts on their birthdays, anniversaries, or other important events.

3) Not keeping your word. If you say something, mean it. Not doing something you promised to do will spark some negative feelings. If you have made plans to go out, see a movie, take a leisure walk, go to the mall or something, don’t break your plans at the last minute.

4) Looking at another girl when you’re with her. Indeed, what girl would like it when you shift your attention to another girl while you’re together? That gives the impression that you are not interested in her.

5) Entertaining calls and text messages while being with her. Unless it is an emergency, taking calls or sending or receiving text messages are absolute no-nos when you are out on a date with a girl you’re serious with.

But of course, there are limits to all these. You must not let the girl control your life, either. Even though you are in a relationship, and really, it does not matter if you’re with a Filipina or a Western girl, or some other Asian woman, you must not lose your own personality. While you may want to give your girlfriend your undivided attention, keep in mind that doing so will not work all the time. Eventually, you will want to have some “me” time, too, and so will your girlfriend. In your utmost desire to please her and not to make her feel jealous in any way, you may end up forgetting your own self, and that is not good either. The thing is, you must know how to balance yourself so will still become whole and not broken, in love and not fall out of love.

So do Filipino girls get jealous easily? So what if they do, right? You now know how to tame her heart with these tips!

Do Women In The Philippines See A Difference In Dating An American Born Filipino And Someone Born In The Philippines?

One’s environment plays a huge role in shaping his/her values and behavior. Generally, Filipino men may share the same physical features, i.e., short in stature, big nose, chinky eyes, but how they act is influenced by how they are brought up and by what they see all around them. It goes to say, a Filipino guy who was born and raised in America will not act in the same way as the next Filipino guy who was born and raised in the Philippines.

A Filipino woman dating an American born Filipino is likely to notice the following differences sooner or later:

1) American-born Filipinos are more direct when converting their thoughts into words. They don’t go beating around the bush, and that means they can be brutally honest. If you’re not used to this, you can find it insulting, offensive, or hurtful, but know that it is not intentional on the part of the American-born Filipino to hurt you. Chances are, he does not expect you to be hurt by his words because from where he grew up, girls don’t easily get sentimental when spoken to directly.

2) American-born Filipinos don’t care what others think. They wear whatever they like, according to their own fashion sense, without giving a care in the world if they are creating a scene or causing a commotion in the process. Don’t be surprised if you find a Filipino guy with streaks of gold in his spiky hair, and rings on the earlobes, nose, and lips, and one who’s wearing faded cut-offs and statement tees. Chances are, he did not grow up in the Philippines.

3) American-born Filipinos are more liberated. If they have lived in the US long enough, they must have adopted the Westerners’ views about dating, marriage, and love in general. An American-born Filipino may want to go intimate already on just your second date, so be ready with what you would tell him.

4) American-born Filipinos are more brand-conscious. To them it matters a lot that they wear branded apparel, especially, when going on a date. This can put a lot of pressure on you, too, to be more choosy with your outfits if you are going on a date with the American guy.

5) American-born Filipinos are liberal-minded, especially when it comes to religion and relationships. American-born Filipinos may not be very religious, and it may not matter to them what religion you believe in, but if you are passionate about your religion, this can pose a problem sooner or later. When it comes to relationships, American-born Filipinos are open-minded, too. Don’t be surprised to find lots of not a  them being open to the idea of an open relationship. If you are not the only “apple of your American-born guy’s eyes”, don’t be surprised about that, either.

6) American-born Filipinos are wilder and more adventurous. They are used to more action, so their idea of a perfect date may include bar hopping, wild disco dancing, and bungee jumping, to name a few.

By these differences alone, it is easy to identify if the Filipino you are dating is American-born or not. But does it really matter where one is born? Perhaps, for a lot of women, love is the only thing that matters, and will conquer all. But apparently for others, love is not all that matters. Indeed, if you are in for the long haul, these differences can be your deciding points whether to proceed with the relationship or stop right there and then before your heart gets broken. Needless to say, there are advantages and disadvantages either way. You just have to learn how to make the most of your relationship, regardless of who you are dating – an American-born Filipino or someone born in the Philippines.

What Attracts A Filipina To A Foreigner?

These days it is not uncommon to find Filipina women in the arms of foreign men. But why the attraction between these two races? What attracts a Filipina to a foreigner?

There is the notion that Filipino women who go for foreign men are just after one thing – money. That’s largely debatable, of course. After all, not all foreigners are wealthy. True, the Philippines is still a developing nation, and the US is already a fully developed country, but it does not mean that all Filipinos are poor and all those living in the United States are rich.

Well, it may also be that one dollar can go a long way in the Philippines, but it’s an entirely different scenario back in the States, especially in the midst of recession. People are losing homes and jobs in the states, and yet there doesn’t seem to be a downtrend where romance between Fil-Ams is concerned. Moreover, in the US, spending a dollar is spending a fortune, which also goes to say that what appears to be loads of money in the Philippines isn’t all that much when spent in the US, so, really, it can’t be all because of money that Filipinas are attracted to foreigners.

So what attracts a Filipina to a foreigner?

There are many things that draw a Filipina to a foreigner, such as the need to try something different, for instance.

Long gone are the days when women would just content themselves with provincial life. It’s not that it’s a bad thing, of course. But there’s absolutely nothing wrong, either, with venturing out or tasting a different menu, so to speak. For a Filipina, it can be a thoroughly exciting experience to have a relationship with foreign men, with their free spirit, and amid cultural and religious differences. Dating a foreigner is not necessarily an upgrade in what one may be used to, but the many differences between them do give a relationship some spice.

Foreign men are also seen as one’s ticket to visit other countries outside the Philippines. True, it’s more fun in the Philippines, but for someone who has lived in the Philippines all her life, there is that longing to see the the United States with all its glamour and glory. Who can blame her, right? Think about Hollywood, designer clothes and bags, and world-class tourist spots, to name a few!

But everyone knows just how difficult (and expensive) it is to get a tourist or even a working VISA to the US. It’s been said, in fact, that if you are a professional who simply want to see the world, your chances are better if you simply look for an American fiance to get you out of the Philippines and bring you to the United States than apply for a tourist VISA. Then once your passport has been stamped, it will be loads easier to travel to other parts of the world. Having said this, it’s not at all surprising why Filipinas would be attracted to foreigners.

A Filipina may also be forced by a need to start anew, even if it meant being away from her family. A bad experience at home may have left her with no other recourse but to seek refuge or comfort in the arms of someone who is not at all Filipino. It does happen at times that it takes someone from a completely different background to appreciate you or make you realize what’s important to you. A complete change of environment and an entirely new set of friends may be good for a Filipina’s soul, in this case.

A Filipina who was once married to a Filipino may also be attracted to a foreigner so as not to make the same mistake. Surely, you have heard it said too often, been there, done that. Well, indeed, if she didn’t find true love with a Filipino, she might have better chances of finding true love with someone who’s not. Who could tell, right?
