How Filipinas choose a mate

Recommended Posts

Well i am not rich never was, when i met my Filipina wife i had just started a new job after being unemployed for a year.

I lived in a rented flat, had an old car,no savings, i used a credit card to fly to the Philippines to marry her.

And one of her best friends paid for the wedding as a gift to my wife.

I am by Filipino terms a " Rich Whitey " but all i get is my UK pension an 2 private pensions as does the wife.

So all i can say is if i am not rich, it must have been my stunning good looks that she married me for!!

Hmm.....I think for the most part, the title should be -- How the young Filipinas choose mates.  I figured I got another 15 years before I kick the bucket.  If I was to become single and available again, it would be on my terms.  No more marriages, no more emotional baggages, no more over acting (OA).  

Unnecessary stress is a silent killer, especially when you have other medical complications.  With a warm companion by my side, watching the sunset as well as the sunrise.  If that doesn't work out, there are endless sunset and sunrise to enjoy the rest of your life.  Being alone doesn't necessarily mean being lonely.

I never thought about that, although I probably kick the bucket as I go for the 3rd one, on the same night?  But I gotta hand it to you Gerald -- you're a die hard Screaming Eagles, always living on the edge of the exit door of a perfectly flying C-130.  

Triple POW or is it SPLAT?

Not so, Jake.  The filipinas I have hinted at, in some of my posts, range between ages 25 and 50.  I mean think about it.  How can she be a widow 2 times and on her 3rd marriage to a guy with one foot in the grave if she is still young?  Age means nothing.  There are as many guy being taken by older filipinas as there are by younger ones (IMHO) because there is a willingness to disbelieve that an older lady can be a scammer.  Uh Uh.  I find it just means that they have had more time to perfect their skill.

This is by NO MEANS meant to imply that all filipinas of any age choose their mates in a certain way.  It simply means that the age of the filipina has little to do with it.

Whenever there is money, there are people hanging around who will want some or all of it. A lifelong friend of mine wrote a horrifying book about the death of her and her husband's parents and the vultures hanging around all of them to control the money and the medical treatment as each approached death.

In my own life I watched my ex-wife remain close to her father who she hated so she could inherit. A rich man when he died at 90; between the women and the lawyers the money was consumed and my ex got nothing. She's now waiting for her mother who is 94. 

The only difference with Filipinas is the amount of money it takes to motivate her. I mean in the US an old guy with 100k in assets would not be worth much attention but in the Philippines he is a rich foreigner and can get as much attention as he can stand!

BTW, I really don't say any of this negatively. I assume when there is money there will always be people who want it, whether in the Philippines or in the West. Hell, if any of you have any money - I'll be your friend:hystery:

It used to be the guys doing the cherry picking. The cherry picking here is in finding an American who can father 1 or more children so they can get the SS allowance for 18 years plus American passports to sponsor the mother to USA when the allowance stops.

Hmmm...  Good thing you and I are Canadians...  Hey!  You're married!    Oh, horse puckies...  I'm going to be too in a few months...  Guess we'll just have to leave it all to the Yanks...  

:mocking:
