Greetings everybody,

I was thinking about what to write this week that would help other men coming to the Philippines looking for Love.   

Visa Assistance

My first Love of the Philippines and the Filipino people and especially Filipina Women was while I was serving 20+ years in the US Navy. I was deployed to Subic Bay at the Air Station of Cubi Point in the 1980’s.  

Olongapo City was my first introduction to Filipinas and the Beauty of the women was so amazing I knew that this is what I want in life is to marry a Filipino woman.

I Love the way the Filipino people place such a high regards to family, food, fiestas, and respect for fellow man.  I must admit I was star struck how I was viewed as a Celebrity right away so it took awhile for that to wear off.

After a few years of trial and error I found the best way to meet a woman of your dreams is to actually come to the Philippines in person. Any of us that live here can give you great advice on where to start.  

But the one thing you don’t want to do is get caught up into the online dating scene like I did from 2012 to 2015. I was so foolish to pay those websites money hoping to find Love and writing so many letters to women I had never even met before.

Looking for Love?

Looking for Love?

After spending thousands of dollars with emails, sending girls gifts, flowers, etc and yes I was even crazy enough to send money just because I was wanting Love so bad after my Bad Divorce in 2012.  

When I came back to the Philippines in 2015 I had decided that this time was going to be different.

The most amazing thing happened when I finally found the girl that was my perfect match. It is hard to believe that we had been friends for over 1 year on Facebook while I had attempted so many times to get to know girls that were friends of hers.

The bad thing was that so many wanted me just for money. I also found out that when you are looking for a good wife sometimes it is best to look outside of the big cities.  The province girls are not so much in the mindset of Money money money. They tend to be more serious and loving.

I know this because I had also tried the bargirl scene as well, but alcohol and love did not mix very well and I wasted a lot of time doing that. My wife that I am married to now is so wonderful, she has only sisters in her family and I am treated like one of the family as well.

I am never asked for money but if I give anything it is very appreciated. I was also impressed by how my new family pulled together to help me last year when I had a severe heart attack.  I am not rich as many peopled here think of foreigners because of the divorce I went through in 2012.

My new family did such a amazing job taking care of me and coming up with money for my hospital bill and to help me recover. I Love it here in Northern Cebu so much I could never dream to live anywhere else. Please if anyone has any questions about anything discussed please feel free to ask and I know I can save you a lot of heartache and money by using the right means to find the woman that will cherish you for just being you. God Bless .

I have found my perfect wife as well. She is from Bohol, a wonderful province that is now my home away from home. All the amazing aspects of the Filipino people that you always hear about are absolutely true. My wife’s family is very numerous and they all love me unconditionally. I have been through many of the trials mentioned in this article, meeting girls online, sending money, but when you meet the right one, something just clicks and you feel it in your heart and soul. I can never say enough how awesome my wife is, and how happy… Read more »

Hi, Alan.

I did find love online, but I realize I got lucky after seing so many people have bad experiences.

She wasn’t the only woman to respond to me, but she turned out to be the best how could have ever hoped for.

Interesting article… I’m inclined to respect the advise to be careful with the internet dating, that spending time in the Philippines does contribute to not only finding a Filipina girlfriend, but it gives you so much more. Spending time here gives you the ability to court, a strong Filipino custom that serves multiple purposes. In addition, getting to know the Family is valuable. You’ll know their motives right away, and since marrying a Filipina naturally implies you are marrying the Family, you will be ahead of the game. I’m fortunate to have met a young Lady when I was also… Read more »

Alan, Interesting article and I agree 100 % with you and our intro to the Philippines was similar is many ways. I spent 3 years in the Philippines from 1970 til 1973 stationed at the San Miegel US Naval Comm. Station at San Antonio about 30 km from Subic Bay and 2 of my daughters were born at the Hospital at Cubi Point. I returned to meet a friend that I had been emailing and chatting for almost 2 years after my divorce that ended a 37 year marriage. Met face to face and married the lady of my dreams… Read more »

There is a lot of wisdom in this article. Wife hunters, pay heed. City girls are indeed risky. Even my wife says that. A man has a better chance with a country girl. They are better rooted to family and work ethic, less enamored by glitz and money. Not to say there aren’t a lot of city girls that have the qualities that make a good partner.. I know some of them as well, married to my friends here in the states. There is a risk of bringing a girl to the US and having her leave after she becomes… Read more »

Shipmate Alan: I was married to a Girl from North Carolina after the Navy stationed me in Norfolk. Then in 1969, two years later I divorced and stayed single for the rest of my 24 year Navy career (Oh the money I saved). In 1986 I retired in Puerto Rico owning two beach bars (Still Single) Then signed up to sail again with MSC (PAC) While flying to a ship in the Gulfin 1994, I had a few days so I popped into the Philippines to visit an old shipmate in Olongapo and met my wife as she was the… Read more »

“One piece of advice to visitors; Go to any SM Dept. Store and see the most beautiful ladies on the Archipelagos. If a young man wanted to meet a hardworking caring woman this is what I would recommend.” – Paul Thompson I agree wholeheartedly. Not just at SM, but all department stores in the Philippines, or even at 5-star hotels. They are all petite and drop dead gorgeous. The year before last, when we stayed at the Makati Shangri-la, the first night I used the gym, I may have laid eyes on the most beautiful Filipina I have ever seen… Read more »

Nice topic. I thank God everyday I found a woman with a heart of gold! So many gorgeous Filipinas, but one has to definitely verify their NATURE. Are they self-centered and spiteful? What do they want? If I had to do this again, I’d go to church and carefully find a wife there. She certainly won’t be in the bars, or the ones with dollar signs in their eyes. And I have to say I feel sorry for some Filipinas who end up with loser expats. There are a lot here, and I’ve seen them. You have to BE the… Read more »

My wife is from the PH and I am from the USA. We met online. She came to the USA from the PH and we got married. We have been married almost 4 happy years and have subsequently relocated to the PH. Firstly we got to know each other during a 2+ year relationship prior to marriage. Secondly, I did a full disclosure for her and requested that she do the same for me. This was to provide the good, bad and ugly. It helps to promote honesty with each other. My disclosure also provided basic financial information. I wanted… Read more »

My first girlfriend, she lives in the country. She has a large family. At first, it wasn’t bad. Things were quite well for us. But it just got worse over time. We had a child together. This child was conceived just before Yolanda. When she was born our relationship was good. One thing we did was I made it where she could make her own money. And she did and she did not have to constantly ask me for money. But one thing that I noticed that was disturbing is she had nothing to show for this money. And things… Read more »
