Finding the Best Dating Site to Meet a Filipina

Men from all over the world, especially westerners—and foreigners in general—are becoming more and more infatuated with and seeking Asian women as their girlfriends and prospective brides.

The Philippines specifically happens to be a very open, free country with tons of young, single, and sexy Filipinas that dream about meeting the foreigner or western man of their dreams that will come and sweep them off their feet—in hopes of ultimately creating a family with.

Filipinas are naturally beautiful, with or without makeup, typically have an incredibly perfect physique while petite, stunning dark eyes, and flowing silky, natural, dark hair. Their eyes are mesmerizing, and many of them make absolutely hands down the best wives and mothers in the world!

So if you’re serious about seeking out and meeting the Filipina girl of your dreams, take into consideration the following websites or outlets to do so, and what we’ve learned!

LOVEME.COM

LoveMe is a HUGE website, with tens of thousands if not more of ‘single women’ from all across the world. Specifically, there are also tens of thousands of beautiful, single Filipinas on the site as well. Whether or not they’re frequently active is a different factor—that seems to be hit or miss.

Unfortunately, LoveMe.com has reportedly loads of fake pictures and profiles, along with scammers alike. Unfortunately men have reported that many women don’t reply to their emails, and when they do it’s very generic—and not actually responding directly to what you might have sent or asked them.

Lastly, the site and using its services, even in addition to upgraded membership, still can easily cost you a fortune in purchasing her email address, sending gifts, writing letters, hiring a translator, etc. etc.

With that being said, such a dating website brings us back to the reality that only so much can be expected from them, and at best, they ‘bridge the gap’ or make it possible to get a potential relationship going–and nothing more. It brings us back to the reality that there are no guarantees in life, online or off.

BLOSSOMS.COM

Blossoms seems to have quite a substantial amount of real profiles of beautiful, single Filipinas in their late 20’s to early 30’s. Make no mistake, Filipinas naturally stay gorgeous well into their older years, so this is definitely not a deal-breaker.

While Blossoms seems to be legitimate, the replies from women on the site can take very long, and due to their seemingly ‘archaic’ user-platform and features the website tends to lag a lot or be otherwise inconveniently slow.

At $30.00 a month, we refer you to more credible, well-reviewed, and worthwhile sites such as Cupid, as the aforementioned amount is considered a relatively high premium rate to pay for membership.

DATEINASIA.COM

date-in-asia-login-front-page

DateInAsia sets itself apart from most common dating websites, including those designed for finding single, sexy Filipinas. It does however, oddly require your telephone number for a confirmation code via SMS to register and maintain your account. While this might serve as a ‘buffer’ to keep the real from the fakes out, there’s no guarantee that your information won’t be shared, or that it hasn’t been in the past. The overall reputation of the site is mediocre at best.

Unfortunately, loads of scammers and bots have been reported, like many sites, to be on DateInAsia. The problem might very well be that the website doesn’t want to remove the fake profiles because they attract new traffic.

One benefit of the site is that there’s undoubtedly sexy and single women from all over the world that you can voice and video chat with–or arrange to send letters back and forth. However, emails seem less successful with users, so physical letters might be your best bet—although costly.

Again, a website like DateInAsia is one in which requires great discretion in successfully separating the real from the fake.

FILIPINOCUPID.COM

filipino-cupid-front-page

FilipinoCupid, well known and backed by its many other global and reputable dating websites is definitely an optimal choice amongst the competition.

While it has a history and reportedly does not ban unwanted scammers and BOTS directly via their IP addresses–in comparison, it seems to do the best job in filtering out the unwanted ‘fakes’, scammers, or otherwise ‘BOTS’.

There are definitely a substantial amount of legitimate women on the site, but you must use your discretion as with any dating site; to include not wiring women money haphazardly.

The premium membership cost you pay alone should be enough of an investment for you–for the time being. Ultimately, should you feel as though you’ve prospectively met your future girlfriend (or wife), it’s most advisable to arrange a meet to visit her and the country itself—as understandably, people can be completely different in person than they are online.

Should you be especially curious or interested in getting more out of your money before spending tons of money on airlines, you could, at your discretion hire a detective to peak in on the woman you’re interested in—some might say creepy, others say financially responsible, especially given the amount of potential scammers or ‘gold-diggers’ that all too often frequently give Filipinas a bad name.

ASIANDATE.COM

Last but not least, there’s AsianDate.

For many, the sites been reportedly best used for ‘entertainment’ purposes-only, and that successfully linking up or corresponding with a legitimate woman and prospective future girlfriend is more or less a gamble—as seen in most dating sites anywhere in the world.

Considering its site-features and any realistic likelihood of meeting the Filipina of your dreams, the site is arguably a bit overpriced.

The website seems a big complicated to navigate, and is definitely not our top choice. More often than not, women have been labeled otherwise illegitimate, and even when they are real, could simply just be ‘phishing’ for your wallet, or preoccupied collecting ‘sponsors’ as some have experienced as a trend globally, but especially with women—online—throughout Asia to-date.

In consideration of all the prospective outlined online platforms for online dating and finding a sexy, single Filipina, FilipinaCupid seems to be the best bet and most ‘bang for your buck’.

Dating in the Philippines: What are the advantages and the disadvantages?

Below is my list of the advantages and the disadvantages of dating from the opposite sex in the Philippines. Before I begin though, I need to make it clear that in here lies an article featuring ideas without any false political correctness like you see in some parts of the Travel Channel, or what other people would define as hype advertising features that people would like to listen to. What I give is factual, with everything holding true to the degree that I am aware. They are, of course, not true for everyone, but largely will hold a lot of water to a great mass of people.

The advantages:

  • In the Philippines, the marriage between husband and wife is based on Christian belief. It is a sacred union that many families hold fast, and this is the reason why the Filipina brides will be careful as she chooses whom her husband is. There is no divorce here, so you will want someone you can live with, to love, hold and commit to until your very last day on earth. In essence, the Filipina woman will always clench to the man of her life until the end. Family, for them, is the basic and is the fundamental unit, and as such, she will always stand for her family.
  • Flattery is a positive act around this place. Men are not considered evil or creeps if they go ahead and flat with the young ladies. Unlike most places that consider flattery as creepy and a disturbance, it is not so for the Filipina girls. Showing interest is a good sign. In fact, it is seen as mature, adorable and a natural course in life. The girls always adore the flattery and are very shy when you act out on them.
  • Looks, for the girls, are important, but not the essence of a relationship. As long as the girl is committed to you, she will show you the tenderness and affection you deserve. They have the time to be with you unlike most of the modern westernized women.

  • The Philippines has a range of girls to choose from, having everything from the Spanish oriented light-looking girls to those that seem to have a Chinese orientation. We also have darker looking girls of Malay origin.
  • When making love, the women here are not uptight. They are quite receptive when you touch them. They are neither prudish nor puritanical like Americans or British women. They are able to give you a tender touch when making love like no other women can.
  • Filipina brides do not give you a hard time when communicating. Most have a good education background.
  • To a large extent, the Filipina girl is faithful to her husband once married. She will do whatever it takes to guard her marital status and she will require you to do the same. Whenever there are challenge, she is able to stick by your side. This kind of loyalty is unlike any other. Before doing any Filipina dating, it is recommended that a man take keen note of this kind of commitment.

Some of the disadvantages:

  • Most of the girls from this region who allow foreigners in their lives come from a poor background. In many occasions, you will be expected to fend for the woman when it comes to medical attention and providing for the daily needs of the home. You will also be expected to give a hand to her extended family in case of an emergency. Since family comes first, they need their consultation to get married to any foreigner.
  • In some isolated occasions, Filipina women have the idea of getting married just to get their way into the West. It has been heard that men are today lamenting of how their newly wedded wives from the Philippines are ditching them almost immediately they arrive in the US. There seems to be a word going round in their native homes that if they get a divorce somehow, probably through filing a “physical abuse” case against the husband, they will not be deported.

Conclusion:

You need to take in the bad as well as the good. Some people are OK with the disadvantages presented above, but some are terribly poor at handling the challenges that come along with marrying from the Philippines. There is no place to find a perfect wife. Just weigh the good and the bad and decide whether you are able to live with your partner’s moral values and ethical standards.

How to Date a Filipina

Be Humble

Humility is attractive to ALL women… not just Filipinan women. Being confident and interesting is fine but being cocky will not get you far. Show her that you are interested in her and that you feel lucky and privileged to get to know her.

Be Industrious

Being busy, active and hard-working will grab her interest. Asian women are typically raised in a culture where hard work, educational ambition and goals, and a general “nose to the grindstone” type of attitude is highly valued. She will find you highly attractive if you have a lot going on. Of course, you need to make time for her, however!

Don’t Be Pushy or Aggressive

Filipinas tend to be intrigued by American men. To them, a white man is exotic. They will enjoy the intrigue and flirtation that can be built with a courtship between the two of you. That means you need to keep things P.G. for a while. It also means that you shouldn’t act desperate or obsessive.Let things evolve naturally.

Show an Interest in Her Family

Women from the Philippinesn are typically very family oriented and are raised to be respectful of their elders. Family is highly important and will probably rank high for her on her priority list. If you want to attract her you need to show interest in her family, as well.

In particular, show an interest in getting to know her parents and grandparents and let her see that you value and respect their opinions.

Show an Interest in Her Culture

Be sure to show and interest and respect for her culture. Listen to her music, try their foods and attempt to learn some of their native language. You may even want to visit her country to see her cultural background first-hand  It will mean the world to her to see that you care about where she comes from.

Be Yourself

When you are dating someone from another culture it can be tempting to want to try and change and conform to her culture. While there is nothing wrong with showing interest and respect for her cultural background, you should retain your own identity and have confidence about where you come from.

Try some delicious Filipino dishes (just stay away from Balut)! Being yourself is the only way to make a relationship work.

Being yourself, showing an interest in her family and culture and working hard will make you very attractive to her. Humility and a little bit of patience will let her see that you are confident without being arrogant.

The truth is that there is no secret to dating a Filipina other than to try as hard as you can to be authentic and respectful.

The rest will work itself out.

Apartments for Rent in Angeles City

Angeles City is the 3rd largest city in the Philippines and a very popular destination for tourists. It is also one of the most popular spots in the Philippines for expat retirees from The USA, Canada, The EU and especially Australia.

If you are thinking about retiring in Angeles, or just coming here for an extended stay then one of your main priorities should be finding an apartment for rent in Angeles City.

There are various ways to go about finding an apartment – I have laid them out in the list below:

How to Find an Apartment in Angeles City, Pampanga

angeles city real estate services1. Use a Real Estate Service – There are several large real estate companies in Angeles City who have listings for Apartments as well as for houses. The problem I have with these Agencies is that they mark up the price considerably.

An apartment that should be going for 12,000 pesos could end up costing you $15,000 thru a Real estate agent. You will also be asked to sign ridiculous leases that make you liable for huge sums if you so much as put a nail hole in the wall of the apartment.

angeles city classified ads2. Angeles Classifieds – There are several large classified websites in the Philippines that have Angeles City apartment rentals. But in my experience they are useless. These sites are not well run like in the USA or Australia.

Most of the listings you find for Angeles City apartments will be outdated. When I first moved to Angeles City I left at least a dozen emails and messages for landlords on these sites and only received 1 reply. When I went to look at the place it was a DUMP! Totally un-livable.

angeles city blue book3. The Angeles City Bluebook – There is a monthly pamphlet distributed in Angels called “The Blue Book” – it has listings for all of the Larger Apartment complexes in Angeles (when they have vacancies).

At these larger, corporate run complexes, it’s much the same as with the Real-estate agencies. You will be asked to sign long term leases and leave huge security deposits.

drive around angeles city pampanga philippines4. Drive Around – The way I have found ALL of my apartments in Angeles City was by renting a scooter and driving around. First figure out what area you want to live in – then just drive around and look for “For Rent” signs.

5. The Internet – Do a search for something like “Apartments for rent in Angeles City” and you will find many of the resources I listed above. You may also find some small time operators, like the place I live, Greenstreet Place.

This is a 7 unit complex in a very convenient area and the rents are very reasonable. These small complexes, in my opinion are a much better way to go.
