The majority of members here are happily married to Filipinas and have come to appreciate what they put down. On the other hand life is "interesting" living with a Filipina you'll just have to visit and find out. :whatever:

Without going into too much detail your quality of life unless happy to just have female company as opposed to a live in partner can vary dramatically here. 

Many of the regular posters have struck lucky and found great partners with decent families so have settled well and are pretty immune to a lot of the dramas here.

Others have had a whole lot of drama playing the dating game.  The days of finding a decent girl on line is fast slipping away with online scammers and some girls waking up to the fact they can get wealthy quickly by talking to lots of foreigners at the same time and creaming a little money off here and there.

My only advice is by all means make friends on line but don't believe anything until you meet in person. It's not like the West where you work hard for the attention.  Here you can date a different girl each day if you were that way inclined and they are all lovely at the start. 

If you get a good one you're living expences will half and your quality of life will double.  Find a bad one and you'll get tampo, begging from the family, talked into buying land, property or setting up a business.  So much drama you will wish you were back in the states.

99.9% of the locals dream of Western quality living and will play along with the game just to achieve it.  Come here, make friends both foreign and local and get to know the ropes as the scammers are very good here. Relationship break ups that I've seen can be a wake up call.  Couples that I thought were a perfect match and have been together long term seperate and within 24hrs the female has a new partner, not a single tear. 

Watch a few episodes of a famous Filipino Raffy Tulfo to get a feel for the culure.  It's a real eye opener and sadly many foreigners are involved.

It's not so complicated as we think - as with anywhere just don't let the little head do the thinking and you'll be fine.
