I loved reading your love story, shared it with my wife and she pointed out we have the same age difference. Thanks for sharing and I wish you and your family continued happiness.

And you and yours. Life is great when you're with someone you love.

Maybe it's because us older guys have finally learned how to be patient with the people we love instead of being so demanding. I think that I just described myself.:cheers:

Jake, just a brief follow up to your comment. The overwhelming majority of The Philam relationships I’m familiar with are quite successful. I think you have an excellent chance of meeting a high quality lady in PI. However as Jake points out its so easy to fall in love (lust) in a place where beauty and femininity abound.

I don’t think a wife from home (U.S) would put up with me for 15 minutes so from my perspective a PhilAm wife was guaranteed to be relatively quite successful. Grab an honest one and you win the game of life and - unlike the U.S.- their underwear size will not be the same as yours.

tmi oops

I have to say I think you described me as well. Thank goodness we finally learned.

Good morning Mike,

I don't think I'm there yet.  In my case, the level of my patience is working against ME and not from external causes.  My self description of me is -- as I grow older, I'm not necessarily wiser.  Definitely my patience has gotten worse, I think.  
 
But my saving grace is having my grand daughter give me some hope that I can still be a good human being.  You ever hear a senior citizen talk "baby talk".  I even taught her how to fart and be proud of it......he, he.   

After all, this is what being a grandfather is -- an old billy goat, willing to share his life's experiences while having a farting contest with a 4 year old girl.  Wait a minute.....here's come grandma --- HIDE!

I asked for patience and God sent me to the Philippines.

Answered prayer? I believe it’s true in my case. My wife is so special.
