The amazing Filipinos I have met and had experiences with. It may sound strange, but that mindset “expecting I must have a girlfriend or must be here because of girls”, and the large amount of Filipinos who constantly share it with me…
I have met so many talented, caring, friendly, smart, beautiful, amazing Filipinas over the course of my time in the Philippines. of course I have been beyond interested in wanting to get to know some girls better, to get closer to a girl here, and to have a girlfriend. It gives me an opportunity to share and inspire pride in them. It definitely isn’t because I don’t find Filipina’s attractive… Maybe it will empower some Filipina women to not put themselves or foreigners into relationships that may not be positive to be in. I have met so many foreigners who within minutes start asking me about girls.
She will quite happily spend half an hour trying to negotiate 5 cents off the price of an apple and then perform a victory dance on upon completion of the deal! The mysterious truth It’s a well-trodden stereotype in the West that Asian women are exceptionally loving, loyal and generous to their men and this is certainly true of Filipino women (though I’ve only known one! However, let it be crystal clear that this is not the same as subservient; personally I want a relationship, an equal partner.
It’s the little things that count, like lovingly prepared home-cooked meals every day and random head massages – not because you asked or she feels she has to, but because she wants to. She may be extremely loving, caring and loyal, but that doesn’t mean she’ll let you get away with being a shit boyfriend or husband.
Now I’d like to share with you a very common conversation I have. It is safe to say that I have interacted with a lot of everyday Filipinos and Filipinas. While looking at the vegetables a few of the vendors said in Bisaya… Again I have nothing wrong with why individuals think that way, because again, yes lots of foreigners who are here do have girlfriends, or wives.
Here is a very common first interaction (which I would have in either Bisaya or Tagalog): Why? We all know that a lot of foreigners come to the Philippines because they have met a Filipina, have a Filipina Girlfriend, or have a Filipina Wife. But it occurs EVERY time I am hanging out with a girl who is simply just a friend of mine, and usually in a very open and vocal way; the girls will be stereotyped as being attached to me.
Food in the Philippines is incredible, it’s as simple as that.A lot of foreigners come to find a Filipina to love and care for them. we know a lot of foreigners come to take advantage of Filipina girls (that hurts me to, it is sick and I dream of the day that changes). In some cases people will be so vocal about it, that it can be uncomfortable.I understand that it would be common to assume that I would be here due to a Filipina. I will always take time to respond to people who make those comments in a positive way.It was whilst travelling through Laos by motorbike with my best friend that I stumbled across this young Filipino backpacker.I instantly felt she was different from all of the girls I met while backpacking, and we hit it off straight away.

I lose that chance to inspire that positive mindset in someone about Filipino culture. a lot of local everyday Filipinos that I interact with will always believe that was the reason why I was here. Where as if Filipinos push the other simple amazing reasons why one should be proud to call this country home…
