A relationship in the Philippines is fine, with the right woman. Not in a million years would I take one back to the USA. Have heard hundreds of horror stories of what can happen with some of these Filipina land sharks.

Do always buy a beer that is standing among several others unopened (control if the bottle top is intact). Do always make sure to pour your own drink, whether it is water or whiskey and never from a bottle that is standing alone on the bar table, you need to point it out yourself (be aware of the surroundings).
Amazing Philippines (5 months ago)
Good points. Thanks for watching.

FREE MEAL SCAM IN THE PHILIPPINES. A big problem with dating Philippina ladies, in the Philippines, is the professional diner. They show up to dates and imply that they want a meal. Sometimes they show up with 'friends' and want you to buy meals for them too. DON'T ENCOURAGE THIS. Obviously, if they actually like you they will be happy to have a date with you without a free meal. If they don't like you, they will probably eat the meal and leave. They might also brag to others about the meal they scored - and will encourage others to do the same. So, when asking for a date, say "to meet not to eat." You will get fewer dates but you will get more sincere dates. If you give up your dignity to find love - you'll end up with neither. Keep in mind that the professional diner will be less likely to work if they can rely on a lot of free meals from lonely hearts. So your charity discourages honest work.
Rohed Matthew (10 days ago)
I notice the same thing but the way I date is very aggressive. I occasionally get new girls coming over with that "Let's eat outside?" bullshit or "I'm hungry" when I roll up. Don't fall for either.
Stanley Stalvey (6 months ago)
men also post pictures of wives, girlfriends and strange women to chat with you. by the 3rd day they are madly in love, will die for you and need $900. lol
Amazing Philippines (6 months ago)
LOL. Yes, it can be a racket so one needs to be very careful, Stanley.
Irish Parcon (6 months ago)
I always feel sad when friends like you guys have difficulties with women back home. As we supposed to have a higher values and not use men for bad reasons. Choose wisely!
Amazing Philippines (6 months ago)
I think it is part of relationships all over the world. Some are compatible, some not. The cultural differences can be a challenge as well.
Irish Parcon (6 months ago)
Yeah... you better watch. Not all are the same though. My ex husband is Caucasian and 15years older than me. I work nursing in the hospital and I was a breadwinner. I love the life but it didn’t work longer. I always prefer older men. If you get the love, respect and attention of Filipina they will give their all to you. It’s always nice when they’re educated. Easy to understand and deal with now that depends how they brought up in the Philippines. I met my ex I already have 2degrees so it was easy for me to get a good job when a man can’t. Experiences varies and depends what’s your type. Good luck
Amazing Philippines (6 months ago)
Very good points Irish. Do you live in the Philippines now or overseas?
hotbezee76 (6 months ago)
I bet you did give her some "nuts" friend. 😉 Good video. I hope my lady friend will not drug me and take all my money. Lol. Joking aside, that's really scary about all your story you're telling. Didn't know Philippines was like that? Keep up the good work.

This type of stuff goes on all over the world so be cautious. Thanks for watching.

You can read all the books and watch videos which also give one some knowledge and "feel" for a culture but experiencing it in person is the only way to understand the culture. Thanks for watching Mike.

The moment she orders a mango shake, you're screwed. It's cheaper to get a shot of quality liquor than a mango shake, especially at a high end bar or resort.
Amazing Philippines (9 months ago)
Drinks are pretty cheap here in most bars and resorts. Thanks for watching.
Bren Chomsky (9 months ago)
Ok, I am studying your video. I've been there in RP last 14-years ago. To get the sympathy of a local girl there, do not focus on small peanuts. P200-pesos for food is very cheap. About $4-dollars ? P50.00 she might pocket is a very small change, so what ??? P50-pesos is one dollar. When I visited the Philippines, the cost of a bowl of noodles is P120.00 plus soft drinks. A decent meal for one person here in America from POPEYE'S Chicken for example, will cost you about $12.00 plus tax. When you know you have wrinkles in your forehead and creases in your neck and you are dealing with a young girl, don't be cheap. How to deal with this ? Find out the prizes of food around. Street foods are usually cheaper. Do this, here's three thousand pesos for small things you wanna get like food, transportation. At this point, you start gaining her sympathy. You give something, you'll get something. Your experience must be smooth and pleasant. Don't forget young people have a lot of needs like cell phones, tablet computers, clothes, food. Expect this. Don't forget you went to the Philippines to get a young girl 'coz you cannot get one in America or Western Europe at your age and financial attitude. Good luck.

Amazing Philippines (9 months ago)
You make some good points Bren and thanks for watching. Many do come looking for a young girl but not all. Middle age or older is ok with me as the generation and culture difference can be challenging and they want and will spend much more time with the gadgets they must have.
Bren Chomsky (9 months ago)
I am a Filipino, met a Filipina girl thru a call center. Visited the Philippines to meet her. The first time we met she keeps on looking around specially my luggages. I stayed in a five star hotel. After a while, her phone keeps on ringing. After that, she keeps on leaving, I think being coached by her friends on what to do. Three days later some of her friends wants to talk me. it didn't take long, they told me my GF have a problem and its family. I said like, she never told me that. They said, there is... I asked her friend, how old are you ? She kept quiet. I already know a scam is coming up. So I said, she should have told me that. She could leave for home any time with no problem. In fact, she could leave now to see her family. A day later, I gave her good money, she disappeared for three days. I called her phone but no answer. She reappeared after three days and told me they went to Batangas beach resort with her male and female friends. A day later, she told me herself and a female friend is going to Saudi Arabia and next month. I said like, do you already have a passport and a visa ? And she said no... so I said, how would you and your friend go to Saudi Arabia of all the places next month ?
Amazing Philippines (9 months ago)
Thanks for sharing your experience Bren. I meet foreigners here often and they have many of the same type of stories. They think we are all rich and they want some of that money and a better life and lifestyle but they only think about today and many do not plan for tomorrow so they don't handle money and budget well.
TheRadiastral (9 months ago)
A few tips (yes, I was scammed before for money): - she can't be online often, because she can't afford internet - RED FLAG - she emails, but doesn't chat/voice-talk often - RED FLAG - she mentions "financial stability", or anything money-related, in her profile, or the first few months of messages/chats - RED FLAG - she tells/writes stories, about serious health problems in the family, or other accidents, while she hasn't even met you - RED FLAG - she asks for any amount of money, before you two even met - BIG RED FLAG, RUN AWAY My advice: When you chat to a new pinay online, 1st thing, tell her you've been scammed for money before and you just want her to know, that you promised yourself not to send a penny over internet under any circumstances whatsoever, EVER. And just watch them go away. Go for the one, that doesn't. Worked for me.
Amazing Philippines (9 months ago)
You make very good points. There are lots of scammers all over the world and many do send money after hearing the stories. Thanks for watching and commenting.

First rule: filipinas are conservative and shy. If you meet a girl for the first time and she is not like this...red flag.

Good point Philip. Thanks for watching.

Amazing Philippines (11 months ago)
I sent her away Nick. I did not trust her and most will tell you not to bring strangers up to your room. They can drug you easily and steal everything you have. Thanks for watching.

There are many swindlers everywhere and they are good in making life stories of their own to fool you. She was one of those.
Amazing Philippines (11 months ago)
That is true. I generally understand what is happening and ask many questions. It often doesn't take too long to see inconsistencies in the stories. Thanks for watching Thor.
Marialuz Raga Pew (1 year ago)
Sorry Sir , your story is sound like scum..Both side men and women are scumbag to those who are looking for a quick fix relationship which they deserve each other.. Honesty is proven to be always the best policy and old fashion way.. My older sister got divorce early in life have a decent job decide to date from Facebook but did not realize those men just looking for big buck pretending to borrowed money w/out paying her back.. So is not just one country is all over US, UK, Europe and Nigeria , BUT ASIAN men are not included here they are pretty decent..

I find life experiences to be interesting and an opportunity to learn about cultures and people. I usually understand what is happening but occasionally let it go too long. LOL. Thanks for coming along and commenting Beth. I am comfortable here for the most part.
Warner Robins (1 year ago)
If my life were to change to the worse I would want a woman in her 50s. I suppose most that old have children and probably married. We've done the kid thing and God Bless would never want to go through that again.
Amazing Philippines (1 year ago)
I have met several single ladies in their 50's and 60's here who are "looking for a husband". They and their friends are very open about stating that they are looking, One of the 1st questions I always get is, "Where is your wife?". When they find I do not have one, they say, "She is looking", pointing to their friend or coworker. There are also many in this age group on the date sites and some have the higher degrees or business experience as well, Warner. Good luck.

One time i joined the dating site..im immediately log out..bcoz some people i don't trust . very bad..for me..i think the man for me i wanna meet him in person not the dating site..❤❤❤
Malou Villaponayo (1 year ago)
+Robert kubrick thank you..yes im said some people ..not all are bad..😊..Good luck also..
Robert Kubrick (1 year ago)
Malou, not all men on the dating site are bad just as not all women on the dating site are bad. In either case you can't tell which are bad until you meet them. When I lived in the Philippines I had women misjudge me and I said fine. Later they told me they misjudged me and I told them I don't want anything to do with them because their mind is full of dirt. Mine might be a lonely life but there can be much worse than lonely. Good luck to you.
Amazing Philippines (1 year ago)
Thanks for subbing and commenting Malou. There are a lot of cons and fakes on the sites and it is best to meet in person .

I had a much better experiance of DIA. Its mainly about not being stupid. If both are looking for love, you dont talk money, if one talk money then you decide if thats what you want, and dont send her more then she give since you might never met.
Amazing Philippines (1 year ago)
I have met a nice girl on dia also and we are comfortable with each other it seems, so hope it will work out long term. Good to hear about your experience and best wishes. I think most of the girls on the date sites are sincere also, but one has to be careful. Thanks for watching and commenting Sefika.

"looking for" a mate should not be in men and women's mind. Why can't we all believe that if God has someone for you, he'll make it possible.

What age range do you usually go after?
Amazing Philippines (1 year ago)
I don't "usually" go after any age range as that is not one of my top priorities. Personally, I think 40 and above is ok for me, but personality and maturity are important matters also. Thanks for watching and commenting.
Day/Swing Trader (1 year ago)
Be very careful of these Filipina women, they are very cunning...not all of them but a whole lot of them. They may be talking with you online but they are meeting and talking to a lot of people online, planning to meet them, have different skype accounts, etc. Plus they all have a local Filipino boyfriends. Never send money nor support them because your not the only one using western union to send money. A lot of these women have at least 20 close family members and I can assure you that at least one will get sick or die young and they will try to get money from you. I had filed a fiancee visas 3x and all 3 I have cancelled because I found out something bad later on. It's in the blood of the Filipino people to be corrupt, being unfaithful and at the same time be religious. What I learned on being in the Philippines off and on for the last 15 years is just to have fun, get a vasectomy first before having fun and look at these women as a product like a brand new car. After 5 years your brand new car will eventually get old and you need a new car. It's a cycle for these women, they are hot when they are young and most of the time by the time they hit 22-23 years old, they get pregnant and a single mother. A lot of Filipinas have children. And by the time they hit 30, they'll be putting their half naked photos on the dating site to compete with the younger ones..have fun, play safe, do not get set up by the police by these cunning women, do not get rob and mostly do not get anyone of them pregnant!
Day/Swing Trader (1 year ago)
I know the reasons those girls been up to and why they became a bargirls/prostitutes..money, lack of money and it's very sad specially a lot of them been emotional, sexual, mental and physical abuse. The small space gives people lack of privacy. But if you look at the big picture, the expats are not to blame, they are just small percentage. You need to look at the locals(politicians, executives, businessmen, police, military, lawyers, doctors)who corrupt these women. These locals tend to pick when they are under age 18 because Filipinos are very insecure about their size. Trust me, the girls phonebook are full of these people.. We are not disrespecting them. Very rare you see a case that expats went to jail but more of the locals. Your welcome and thanks a lot also.
Owen (1 year ago)
I completely understand. There is indeed no point at all to continue this argument. I just want you to realize that you are in a social media which anyone can have access and be able to read your comment. Those girls or women in bars and clubs been through hell, ups and downs and been sacrificing their dignity and life for reasons that we do not know. However, despite of begin in those shoes, they still deserve our respect and hoping someday they will be able to get out from that path and have a new life. Don't get me wrong bro, I do have friends who have/had relationships with the foreigners like you, and I don't see these foreigners treating any women the way you you have been treating them. In fact, I appreciate the for choosing this country to live for the rest of their lives because living here in the Philippines, meaning the assurance that they will be given importance and letting them feel that they still exist and will surely be loved to the end of their graves. You might not have seen my first phrase of my first comment, but again thank you for coming in the Philippines and I hope you have a wonderful life ahead. Peace.
Day/Swing Trader (1 year ago)
I don't want to argue with the locals. Whatever you say bro. Instead of concentrating on us expats, you should concentrate to those corrupt Filipino-Chinese who distribute shabus to poison your people and women and those people also owns the bars, karaokes with all the GROs so they can bribe the corrupt politicians, police and NBI. Do not concentrate on us, we are just tourists looking for fun. You should be thankful that we are there to support your bargirl sisters, cousins, neighbors and friends
Owen (1 year ago)
TQQQ SQQQ thank you! I guess, you should know as well that being in a 'Family' here in the Philippines is not just limited to those immediate people in the house, it includes as well those extended families such as aunts, uncles or even neighbors, yes NEIGHBORS! It is true that most of the time money plays the most important aspect between foreign relationships, however you are the BOSS, you control your money and it is up to you if you want to extend your generosity towards those extended families. Filipinos would definitely ask for some help especially if it involves the welfare of the family, however you could have just told them that you do not want to help, or you are using your money in a very important matter. I am sure they would DEFINITELY understand you and so they can find some better ways to resolve their problems and not just depending on your hell money. Second, you could have commented using appropriate words rather than those you have used. I assumed you have been taught how to respect other people, right? Plus, coming from the place where most of the educated people exist, I wonder what happen to you? Lastly, rest assured I've watched all those commercials in the TV networks you have mentioned. At least, I know how to take care of human life like from the moment those babies open their eyes until they have been taught how to respect other people. Not to disrespect your parents who raised you, I think they failed to watch those very important commercials. Oh that is right, I forgot! I guess they are busy watching how to take care their boobs, use condoms etc.. what do you think? Amazing Philippines, you are welcome and I apologize for the comments.

your wrong, us expats have relationship with the woman, not the whole family. I do not know the whole family specially the cousins, uncles and aunts from which doesn't give rights for them to asks for support or any type of obligation when it comes to money. Most of the relationship breaks up because of money or the root of the tree is about money.. The expats are not here to be the sugar daddy of the whole family, we are there to have fun and at the same time if we're looking for a real girlfriend, we there to get love. Ofcourse theirs nothing comes free in this world but that doesn't mean that the expats have obligations to the family. We are not here to put the little sister or brother to college. Most of the time the expats are in the budget. Yes theirs a lot of hookers there and do not get offended by saying about karma when those women are selling their body. My comments are not looking down at your women but as a warning for the expats community on what to expect and what to watch out for. I already know that the local Filipinos will get offended with my comments but this site are for expats to watch, not for the locals like you. So go watch the pyramid ABS-CBN or GMA with all the commercials relating to babies diapers, kids vitamins, babies milk, etc so the public will get synthesize to have a lot more babies and kids when they can't afford. In reality, the people who benefited of all these are the oligarch, the Filipino-Chinese community who owns the businesses for the babies vitamins, diapers, school supplies, school uniforms, kids day care, schools and colleges as well as the funeral homes.

I enjoyed listening to your stories, but I did think that your reluctance to look at the camera was disturbing. Think of it as your viewer's faces/eyes are the camera lens, and when you speak to someone, it is better to look them in the eyes most of the time rather than to be looking down or to the side, and not looking at the person to whom you are speaking. (Most likely, you had someone there in the room with you, and you were looking at them.) Just an observation...maybe best I don't watch the videos...just listen to them :)

I realize the eye contact issue. I actually have a swing out view screen on my camera and I am looking at myself. I need to stop using that and look into the lens instead. Thanks for watching and commenting Michael.

There are many girls walking around ayala mall with no real employment, and I stress the point very clever.  They dress like workers at the mall, college students, and like ordinary women gone shopping.  I can tell you these women are anything but your normal everyday women, mostly professionals in the sex trade business.  So, I suggest foreigners watch their step, assuming foreigner looking for serious relationship.  Thanks for your response...

This 80 year old man retires to the Philippines... meets a 20 year old girl... they date for a few weeks.... one night, after dinner, he struggles down to his knee, opens a little box and says, "Darling, will you be my widow".

+Suma CumLaude .. great analysis , that's not the way Philippinos think... It's for now, this second.. If they would think the way you do the country wouldn't be such a smokey mountain trash heap where the president has to eliminate thousands since the garbage dump is full...

What does the old guy leave the young Filipina after his death or when he is tired of her? The young Filipina is left holding an empty bag. If she has a kid with this old goat, who will provide for her and the kid when he's dead? She will then return to her poor family and add another (2) mouths to feed to an already struggling family. These are things that are not discussed between the old goat and the probinsiyana. Most Expats come to PI with just their monthly government handout (retirement); limited ability to make a living, if, at all. For the time being they are living like a king because of dollar valuation, have their free "caregiver" and someone to act as a "guide" and a bargain hunter/hustler. Such a sad preamble.

Having a job is one of my top requirements. But finding someone is relatively easy if you have spent much time in Philippines. After my divorce, I assumed my Filipino friends might shun me. To the contrary, they all wanted to play matchmaker. An old friend from Cebu introduced me to my GF, so I never had to go back to the dating pool.

Everyone seems to be a matchmaker here but I prefer to find my own....usually. Thanks for commenting and watching Mikie.

Hi Rod, just a piece of advise for foreigners who are looking for a relationship with a Filipina. This would be my own personal observation and it could be different from others. There should be factors that needs to be considered when choosing someone as your long term partner or lifetime partner. Since this is a "Older guy to a young woman" topic. My advise will be taylored fit for this topic. Things to consider is Age, Education, Occupation, family status, intentions and the least is looks. Woman who are at their younger age(18-24) tends to focus more on material things, social status and enjoying life depending ofcourse on their background their priorities will be different. For example; girl x is 18-24 years old with no job and is trying impress a foreigner with their physical looks and very eager to spend time with them. For me, that would be "concerning" you need to trust your instinct on this one. (To be continued).

No dating site is going to be good ,the only thing you can really do is let fate take its course ,so if your an older gentlemen try to find a nice older woman , there are plenty of beautiful good older mature Filipina women out there , that don't need or want your money , they have already been threw life , been there done that ! I know some older guys want to live the rest of there lives out with some young beautiful girl/woman , but remember the younger they are the more they cost , of course im talking about over 18 , sure a lot of guys have had terrible marriage's and prior bad relationships , and sorry to say this have had ugly wifes , and be it as it may be , in the Philippines this is a place for ugly men to be with some of the most beautiful women they can ever imagine being with in there own country, one thing about the Filipinos is that they love everybody no matter where you come from or look like , your really only going to know someone by face value and gut instinct , and yes Filipino culture is still very tribal in the 21st century ,still natives wearing prada and having Iphone's  , im sure i will get blasted for that statement ! a lot of people forget get this is a family oriented country  ,and family always comes first in the phils , another thing foreigners expats is that when you go live in the province and you live in a barangay, a barangay is just a big village made up from smaller tribes , village life village culture , and your expected to contribute to the well being of the barangay and family tribe threw what ever family relationship you happen to be in , barangays make up different tribes and most people are related to each other threw marriages , all these pretty young women are from some of these places an are expected to bring back to the tribe family support ! and that's the way it is , look at some of the expats that have had to build wells and put in new floors and whatever when they run into one of these young Filipino women they want to do you know what with ! anyway thats the cost you have to pay for the younger women , the older women already have theres and are settled , so that's just my opinion, and food for thought !  lol ! BTW most expats are in the philippines because they suffer the captain cook syndrome and still most filipino expect that of you , if you take a women from the tribe you must pay for her !

Interesting, if not just for the similarities to my own experiences over the last 5 years or so. I eventually found a good 37 year old lady here in Davao City. IMO, it's a crap shoot.

Be careful: Don´t bring anyone to your house until you know them well. Don´t go for a drink to places where ladies are looking for men to go with, normally these ladies are not alone, can have pimps near trying to cheat and rob you. Don´t trust ladies that go to quickly and easy with you, normal decent ladies are shy. Yes they can sleep you and rob you. there are drugs used by thieves or rapists to rob or abuse people, so make sure you control what they put into your glass or better if you just drink in bottle and open it yourself or they open it in front of you. Be careful with things someone bring to you from far. Also pay attention if someone is too much interested for you to drink something . be always in control of the glass you are drinking with. I know a story of a group of Us marines that went out for a drink: They gone to one of those bares with whores and when they were getting a bit happy and drunk, someone a lady was droping some kind of a pill into the glass of one of them: she was trying to go with him to a room but rob him: A colleague of him saw her doing it and a war started between this marines and the pimps. This was real i was listening to the radio live when it was happening . So the best to do is always stay in good people zone and forget about crap.

Hi Rod That girl had a very nice voice though, she would had put you to sleep has she sang “Hush, Little Baby” to you! Not to forget the girl who insisted she could "save" you lots of money, the fixer.. As long It didn't cost you much, consider yourself that you get more experiences in the Philippines. Man be careful and stay alert, seems like trouble looking for you, every breath you take, no pun intended.

Shineamen mbs (1 year ago)
Thank you Rod. Can't wait for the sequel. ANY GIRL, ANYWERE has a careful look to the pros and cons before getting into a relationship, (age, incomes, centers of interest), so you have to do the same and see as much as possible the exact "price" to pay. Education and culture may be a river or and ocean too wide to be crossed. True love and freedom are rare and both priceless, so...

Your fear saved you! - Be extremely careful of the maraming kawatans and infathomable atrocities some will do in Philippines and Asia. Forget what the white-knight mangina expats say about age and psudo-morality and being PC. Search Reekay who is living with a hot young lover with NO kids, NO marriage and NO family. Forget his PC speech that keeps him from being deported. Do as he is doing, not just the speech. Finding such a girl is very hard, but the ONLY way to fly for many statistical reasons. Every other scenario inculcates servitude and/or total destruction of your life or sanity. The women there aren't looking for the "love of their life" (most were already boned on a cum stained mattress by those lalaki), they are "sincerely" looking for the "sucker of their life". Don't be the mangina white-knight unless you're a Jesus freak with baby rabies yourself. Great video.
