as much as we both really want to spend the rest of our lives together, i really don't like the idea of us being apart most of the time as visits to and from can soon start to add up and i don't really fancy selling my house to fund the start of our relationship when we will need it for our home together.
Don't sell your house. Having a house in the UK will help you if you want to sponsor your partner to live in the UK.
Also helpful are savings and a salary.

You should check the UK gov website for the visa you want to apply for if planning to bring your partner to the UK.

If you want to spend more time in the Philippines, dont sell your house to fund that. If you put any money into the Philippines you will find it hard to get it out again, and nothing will be in your name.
