Default Always women scamming

Can anyone help me here, I will be coming to the PI in three weeks and looking for a place to live. Am looking for a gated community that is close to medical facilities and expats. Another problem I seem to be running into is the amount of scamming that is going on in the dating sites I have used, ( ******* ) ever time I think am getting close to finding the right one the question always come up about wanting money, for a private Internet connection, sick mother, for schooling, lost job, medical, need this need that. Where can I find a great gal that is not scamming?

A lot depends on your budget on where you want to end up. I would look to rent for your first months to a year and make your decision afterwards. If you want stateside security and quality you will not find it 100%. The Subic Freeport (former base) is about the closest that I have found but it is not cheap. Short term leases average from $600-1000/mo for houses. Very few apartments and transportation is a must. On the plus side, it's very relaxed, plenty of expats and things to do, safe, reliable power, internet and water.

If you look elsewhere you will have to deal with brownouts, trikes, jeepneys, poor (if any) water pressure, theft and all sorts of other adventures. I have been across the whole archipelago and love it to death but will reside in the Subic Freeport (lived in Mindanao and Manila previously).

Your best bet is to wait until you are here before you start looking for that gem of a woman. Most online women are scamming and it's not worth the effort. The best ones are word of mouth. That is how I found mine

There is no shortage of women here in the PI. It's just a matter of sifting thru them until you find the right one FOR YOU. I would not be in a hurry and take your time. Many pick up with the first one that shows interest and rue the day.

So come on over, stay on a tourist visa (keep doing extensions) and enjoy what life has to offer. If after 6 months to a year you think that you are ready to commit, go for it. It took me about 2 years for the rose colored glasses to wear off..

Search for independent women who has a career, a life, and is wanting an relationship. Don't come expecting to be prince charming and give her all she wants. If you spoil her tooooo much she will get use to it and continue to expect you to hand her money. Some women like that sense of entitlement and love through shopping when they are off work. Believe me Anne is a shopper but she is very independent loving woman. It all comes down to how she is raised.

I agree fully with Jon1 and Jdavis10, it is not easy finding an honest, frugal and independent Filipina. Much of any relationship is a matter of trust and this trust works both ways 100%. You also have to look at who she is, where she is from, her family background, etc. It will take time to find this person but she is out that and waiting for you. It is important that she is educated and has a job as well as a computer and Internet connection. Just be very careful when they start asking money for 'her' family.

On the internet we see what we want to see not the real person. Jon1 gave you some very good advise, wait till you come here to find the right person to be with. You will not have any problem finding her here! When I first arrived in the Philippines to stay I spent my first year in a hotel. I received a 50% discount from their monthly rate. I had fast internet, my VoIP with a US number. I had no contract and my things were secured so I was free to travel which I did many times. I did go to Leyte, Samar, all over Cebu Island and Davao. I would not seek a Manila, Subic or Angeles woman. I really like Davao for that. Met the girls family, they will greatly affect you life here! Do not live near her family!

Great subject guys. At the same time it is one that can go the wrong direction easily. I'll reopen the thread and ask that ya take a look again at the forum rules and stay within guidelines as you continue posting in the thread.


Thanks

I just read your post so yes, I understand. Most of the places I visited friends that was married to a local lived. In the province I always spoke to the children and the aged ignoring any attractive women. My first reason for my trip was to see more and know more about the people and country I was going to live in. it is always a bad idea to develop a relationship since everyone would know!

just got back from Philippines on Sept 12th. I did not stay in Manila. I stayed with my fiancee in the province ( Cordon Isabella ). They are not rich, they live up in the mountain and work in the rice field. They cook with firewood. At first her parents were very worried about me adopting their way of living. I ate what they ate (never complained about the food), I showered the way they showered with running water coming out of pvc pipe. I slept on the home made bamboo bed with mattress. I used the cr (comfort room) on the side of the hill. They were very impressed with the way I adopted their way of living. No cars, just motor bike and trikes. I didn't acted like I was from 1st class country. My experience of living the way native way of life was great. My soon to be in laws treated me great. I cant wait to go back again...
