  1. Dating Life Rejuvenated at 56

    There have been several YouTube Vlogs where they stated that the Filipino culture does not really date, but jump right into serious committed relationships and that Filipina's frown at the idea that you are seeing other Filipina's. Based on my experiences, I don't necessarily agree with this theme. Sure, there are some Filipina's that text you more often, and even some that use the term "love you" way too early in the game - but I think this is due to their immaturity and lack of life experiences - and this is why I have decided to stick to Filipina's at least 25 and older. All the Filipina's at this age range seem to understand the dating scene, or dating as seen from the perspective of a US expat. My conclusion, however, is based on very limited experience with the Filipino culture.
  2. Anyone with a shot gun in hand automatically gets my respect here.
  3. What?? No Toilet Paper!??

    How do you know this? No... wait... maybe I don't want to know...
  4. What?? No Toilet Paper!??

    I'm beginning to get used to the bum gun. In fact, I use it every chance I get now - I love this thing! I'm turning Filipino!

    So true. But nothing beats boots on the ground experiences. I had to see it for myself.
  6. All the stories you hear are TRUE. After spending the past two months here, I have found the Filipina's here are so much more approachable compared to the women back home. In the US, I wouldn't even think of walking up to a beautiful girl and striking up a conversation - but here, whether it is in the malls, grocery store or gym, I have initiated conversation, exchanged phone numbers and dated 11 Filipina's - all within a span of 2 months. These women range from 21 to 28 years of age and reside in various locations from BFG city, Dumaguete, Bohol and Subic. What worked for me was to learn a few Tagalog phrases like "Nakakapag salita ka ba ng Ingles?". And I have screwed up my Tagalog many times, and it works even better when I do. So much fun... I think the difference on this trip is that I am now retired and much more time to spend here. Coming from a mindset of abundant time, i'm not rushed or pressured to find anyone and I tend to meet more women (I don't really understand why things happen this way). I highly recommend any single guy to come out here and check it out for yourselves.
  7. Tough decision

    After spending the past month in the Philippines, I have found myself sweating like a pig - and I'm from Hawaii. It can get really scorching hot during the day. I'm so burnt now that I there were several occasions where I have been mistaken to be a filipino (I'm Japanese).
  8. What?? No Toilet Paper!??

    Do you think that there is a correlation between this and their bad breath? In my current dating experience, I have noticed many Filipina's with very bad breath.
  9. What?? No Toilet Paper!??

    I also noticed that the stalls that supply you with toilet paper often request that you do NOT flush the tissues down the toilet, but dispose of them in the trash bin.
  10. What?? No Toilet Paper!??

    As gross as this may seem to us westerners, the water alone can do a better job of cleaning your behind than pieces of paper...
  11. Still haven't figured it out. But I have used the water spray, with no toilet paper during desperate times - like when I was at the Dumaguete Ferry terminal. Basically used the water spray to clean out my ass, but what's next? How do you dry off with no toilet paper?? I have asked several Filipina's, but they only end up laughing and refuse to disclose any details. I guess I am still a newly to the Philippines...
  12. Am i lucky or unlucky

    i second that. I live by the same philosophy. Dave Ramsey said it best, "the borrower is a slave to the lender". When you borrow money from a relative, thanks giving dinner will never taste the same.
  13. Am I considered a senior in the Philippines?

    Very nicely said Dave...
  14. Am i lucky or unlucky

    In my experience, you should NEVER borrow money from relatives, or anyone you care deeply about. You risk losing the relationship over the dept. Especially in the Philippines were they have a culture (or many instances) where borrowed money is forgotten or never paid back, which was not the case for you, but it is still a risk non-the-less. But if you are in a financial condition to do so, I do believe in giving when needed. Once you do so, there are no expectation of being paid back and the relationship is saved. But then again, it depends on the situation and circumstances, and based on the original post, you would be enabling a financially irresponsible habit.
