Right on Reboot!  I'm sure you will introduce the Florida state law regarding "standing your ground".  I wonder what would be her favorite weapon?  A sharp bolo knife or a Glock......he, he.  

Well done sir!

Likely all she needs to do is the one hand on her hip stern look while doing the lips thing. Bad guys will take with tails between legs.

So she's been here a month and I've learned a few things.

#1 My 2 kids adore her. She's great with them. My 7 yo daughter follows her around like a puppy...and she does arts and crafts with her (it's summer and school is out). Her own mother does not do that. I try to be a good dad, but I'm not a mom. When she plays with them it is like she's a kid too. That alone makes her worth her weight in gold. 

#2 I've got dozens of plants sprouting. Everything from those hot little Filipino peppers (seed sneaked in through customs) to lemongrass. She goes out every day to tend to a garden she has always wanted. I lend the muscle to set things up (built some raised beds), the funds to buy supplies, (seeds soil pots) and leave her to do whatever she pleases. 

#3 I took her to Vegas last weekend for her birthday. I figured she'd love the glitz and glam....but no. We spent the weekend seeing national parks in the desert....nature...so there's something we really have in common. Vegas is full of attractive Filipinas...but they're nothing like her, to be honest. She's quite conservative. She was rather shocked. But it's full of Filipino restaurants, which made her feel happy after almost a month. Too many days of of Kano food is too much to bear...and there's no rice at the table! Something that doesn't happen at home....

#4 She can occasionally become as withdrawn and self absorbed as I. After 20 years with my ex-wife, who was the opposite, I am not sure how to adjust. I'm used to being harassed when absorbed by a book, or just a train of thought.

You are a success story in the making and I appreciate hearing about it.  There are two things that stand out, for me, in your success story.  First, its refreshing to hear how well it is working out for the two of you.  Second, you did not pick the same "type" of woman as before.

I have a tendency to fall for the same type of woman each time I "fall in love"  this is the type who are not good for me long term and it shows in my track record.  I have seen many other men make the same error.  You, on the other hand, have learned from the past and you are not letting history repeat.

giphy.webp May you both be beary happy!

At least you know yourself enough not to marry them all.
