Single with Money = Great Life in the Philippines

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't want it any other way.  Especially if you have sufficient income.  I wake up every morning feeling blessed, and life is great.  Retired at the ripe age of 58, I still feel young here.  Why? Because the young Filipina's give you some attention and make you feel way more special than you deserve.  If you are a bachelor with money, you will not want to leave the Philippines.    I rent an awesome one bedroom condo, for $750/month, with a great pool and gym.  I limit myself to a budget of $100/day.  My typical day is as follows: 1) Wake up and eat breakfast, any restaurant with good food will do, 2) Study - online class, 3) Workout at the gym, 4) go looking for Filipina's, malls, restaurants, even bars...rinse and repeat.  Now why would I want to settle down with one girl?  And give up this freedom??

It never gets old.  It's definitely more fun in the Philippines...

I couldn't imagine spending $100 per day.  My rent is about $490 per month on Boracay.  Food and entertainment is about $20 and if I was that way inclined could probably change partners daily.  

My gym membership is $360 per year and I've got a 4km beautiful beach to run in the mornings. 

It's certainly a single mans country if you are after the females but to be honest the novelty factor soon wears off.

But you are not taking into account that there are NO "novelty factors" back home.  That's what makes the Philippines so addicting and hard to leave.

Maybe you need to work on your English?  Just a little?  But I get your point.  I've been to Dumaguete where the old guys hang out.  It's a foreigner saturated city, but the key is to check out places on the perimeter of Dumaguete, away from the foreigners.

First of all I'm very happy for you that you enjoy life here so much!! :smile:

Why settle with a wife? In my opinion that would be very important when the "active years" come to an end, which means when I start needing regular medical attention and the likes. I couldn't imagine living alone (and I'm still 38 years old only), especially when I'm getting older/retiree-age.

On the other hand, I know of a neighbour here who is 85 years old and also single and who lives alone with a helper girl visiting 2 or 3 times a week to check on him.

He has a similar opinion than yours, which I totally respect! If somebody want to live like that, why not? But it's not for me.

I do have a good income myself, but I really couldn't figure how to spend USD 100 per day in the Philippines. Thats around USD 3k per month!!

I remember when I was young (*lol* I'm talking about my twenties which are not THAT far away in fact) I led a similar lifestyle, having a different girl in my bed almost every night, partying (but also working) hard, and so on...

In the end it was an awesome time for me, but financially it was simply not worth it *imo*, it didn't make sense - and I almost went broke before I reached 30, oof!

So for me, the family life as a happy dad and husband has reveiled itself to be the lifestyle of my choice, which I definitely plan to maintain until the end of my days.

 

Anyways, if you enjoy what you are doing, I'll give you my kudos and my high-five on that!!

Everybody should always live their lives to the fullest of their desire! :tiphat:
