One of the worse mistakes foreign men make is buying in too deeply to the idea of the “submissive little oriental bride.” Although elements of that story may appear true to a Western man it is not a message that the women like to have forced on them.
Actually, like women in the other centers of international dating many Philippine women sign up for mail order bride agencies, because they are tired of the overwhelmingly male dominated culture of their homeland.
A Foreign Affair and Asian also have a bunch of hot Filipina on their site, and many women who are serious about marriage congregate to A Foreign Affair, but you just can't beat Cherry Blossoms for the sheer volume of Filipina dating profiles.
Cherry Blossoms really has become the Go-To site for all hot young Filipinas looking to snag a foreign boyfriend, so I would start your search there.
These women often remain in close contact with friends and relatives back home, sometimes sending money to support their parents and siblings.
So, Filipinas grow up with the idea that marrying a foreigner is a real possibility.
First, the Philippines was an American possession from 1898 until 1946.
Because of this dating in the Philippines moves at a little slower pace than in some other parts of the world. Remember, these are often hardworking young ladies, many are trained as nurses, and they are not just looking for a rich foreign guy to cover them in diamonds and furs, though I'm sure most wouldn't object.
A sexy Philipina may be a little slower to give you her trust, but once she does, she will be very devoted to you for the rest of your life (as long as you treat her right). The concept of dating several women at once, as men may do in the Western world, is appalling to most Filipina women. Most of these ladies really are looking for a chance to meet a decent guy and become a happy Catholic housewife.
It's simply part of the male culture and the women of the Philippines suffer for it.
In all my travels I have never met so many single mothers, and the story is always the same...
