You are correct, my finger went to the wrong key or the letter I wanted moved, dang it. My wife asks me all the time, 'Why are you so quapo?' And I tell her, 'It is because you are guapa.'

MOST Filipino women are true, honest, and decent! I get very frustrated with negative broad brush comments about Filipinos from some members here based on limited exposure versus exposure to the typical Filipino! It's a big country folks!!!

Greggw,

It is true that there are a lot of true, honest and decent Filipinas, but it is also true that in a lot of places, especially in and around Angeles City, for example, a lot of young Filipinas are out looking to get money from the foreigners that are there in the area. Many young Filipinas are attracted to older foreigners because they believe the foreigner is wealthy and has big money. I have lived in the Philippines since 21 Sept 2008, I have experienced, a number of times, when young women here are attracted to older men, especially foreigners like me. I tell them from the get go that I am married and am not interested. I also avoid eye contact with them. The cultural difference here is different from Europe, Canada or America. Usually, if you make eye contact with another person, you acknowledge their presence. Otherwise you don't. Here in the Philippines, if you don't make eye contact, you never acknowledge their presence or speak to them, especially if they are a woman and most especially if you don't know them. I am not going to start a forum board war here but this is a known fact. The place where my wife and I live, it is not, by any means, a place where the 10% most wealthy of the Philippine population live. We live in an area that is considered to be a low income area, incomes of less than 25,000 pesos a month. We are known where we live and those who know us, we know them equally as well. We know most of our neighbors and have contact with them on a daily basis. Even though our neighbors are not wealthy by any means, they are very hard working people, and if they have children, they send them to good schools if they can afford to send them there. They also teach their children to honor and respect.

Absolutely correct information Jim, --thanks. A board war is not possible for two reasons.

#1. You have posted information that is true and correct

#2. Any board war (should it occur) will be grounds for the banning of members involved

Thanks for posting as these things need to be said. Off hand I would say that about or at least 95% of the people (including women that are looking for marriage) are good and decent people. It is the remainder that ruin it for everyone or at least make the prospects more risky.

My experience in this is that yes, most Filipinas want to be married to a good man who will be good to them, treat them right and is a good provider, especially if they have children. Personally, my wife love me for me and not for what she can get from me. She knew from the start of our relationship that I am not wealthy by any means, that I do not have deep pockets filled with $1,000US bills. She knows that I am a good man who honors her and treats her right and is good to her. I agree with you 100% that at least 95% of the people (including women that are looking for marriage) are good and decent people. They only want what will help them live a better life and not have to struggle 24/7.

My Asawa has come a long way... She used to wake up and kick me for something she saw in her DREAM!
Ha... used to say its not safe to go to the corner sari-sari alone! She would send her 13 y/o nephew with me. Sheesh...i just wanted to buy a Coke...

I often wondered if he was there to protect me.... or assure I didn't flirt with someone.

I'm happy to report...i am permitted to walk to the corner alone! (just can't cross the street!) haha
