Dating a Filipina? Here’s 60 Things To Excite You

Updated on October 11, 2015

Filipinas are one of the loveliest, sweetest, kindest, and most caring women on the planet. Also, they speak English very well and are raised by their parents to be responsible wives. They are also very good in cooking so their partners are never left hungry. Filipinas are very particular with regard to cleanliness too. They take a bath everyday even if the climate is freezing cold. They do not like messy space or surrounding as well. These are just some of the reasons why many men from all over the nations are attracted to them and are looking forward to make them their wife.

However, not all of them want to marry foreigners because of love. Some choose to marry because they want to go abroad, to travel internationally. They want to live in a rich and highly developed continent like Europe, Australia and America, and have kids there, hoping to become a European, Australian and American citizen later on. It is also one of the ways that they can go abroad fast and find work, hoping that they can help their family back home through their dollar or pound earning.

Other Filipinas, on the other hand, like to marry foreigners because of money. They are hoping that the foreign man can send them money to support their daily living, set up a business, pay their tuition fees, or build a house for them. That is why some foreigners have bad impression about Filipinas. They think we could not live without money and the best way to attract us is through money.

But of course, there are also others who are highly impressed of their Filipina date, partner or wife. And that is, primarily, because of their good education, professionalism, and awesome financial management skills. The experiences, really, differ from one to the other. It is very important, however, that you know your Filipina date or partner very well.

      I love it that you stand by your principals - and that you let people know what they are! Please stay that way, there are too many people in the world who don't know a thing about morals. God bless you!

      Helpful heads up for the guys who are interested. They can't say they didn't know.

      In the U.S. the divorce rate hovers around 50%.

      Many of these divorces come about due to infidelity but mostly by choosing the "wrong mate" for oneself.

      However if it turns out a couple is not "sexually compatible" it increases the odds that one of them may end up cheating.

      It appears there is a primary difference in our cultures. Most U.S. citizens lose their virginity by age 17. (Both girls and boys)

      Anyone over the age of 27 and is still a virgin is probably not going to suddenly become an "insatiable red hot lover" just because they exchanged wedding vows. A common analogy often used in the U.S. is:

      "I wouldn't buy a pair of shoes without having first tried them on."

      Marriage and divorce is lot more expensive than a pair of shoes!

      Few people want, expect, or hope to marry a virgin these days with the exception of those who are (very religious) oriented.

      dashingscorpio, just to correct you.

      By the statement, "Sex is not a priority." It just means that it can be their second or third in the list. They love their family and love ones more than that. Sex is not everything in this world, right? Hahaha. Most Filipinas are interested with sex AFTER marriage. Sex is holy here. And if you've heard about the 4th Power group in X Factor UK, those women are one of the best examples; they are Filipinas who are still virgin at the age of 27 and up. If the Filipinas gives her virginity to you, then that means that she is really in love, madly deeply in love with you.

      Hi B Brian Hill!

      It is indeed a very interesting list :D And it is easier this way than writing long paragraphs. ;)

      Well, if sex is your priority, then...that's it. Filipinas prioritize their family and loved ones more than that. I mean, they know their marital obligation, of course, again, marital...

      B Brian Hill you make an excellent point about #7.

      Most men aren't likely to want to "forsake all others" to marry a woman who has shown little or no interest in having sex with him.

      Many women fail to realize men want to feel desired too!

      I suspect one of the reasons so many men watch pornography and go to strip clubs is to enjoy the "fantasy" of having women desire them!

      Even if you saving intercourse for after marriage there are other sexy ways she show him she desires and wants to please him.

      You don't have to date or marry someone to have a "platonic friendship".
