Best sites for Filipinas?

Looks like there are a lot of sites now and more all the time for finding your Filipina.  If you're the serious type there's a new site for Christian Filipina Dating.  Or you've got the Cebuanas.com for cebu, the filipinaheart, what else?  Date In Asia is free. Friendster, maybe...

You could also try MySpace

You could also try MySpace and Facebook. Not strictly "dating sites" they're probably a good way of meeting people. I'd think you're less likely to find a scammer on these sites than on a dating site.

 

 

scammers are everywhere

 I had a what i called fiance for three years, i helped the whole family in very thing you could think of from education to farming  and daily living, but this year was time for me to meet her and possible get marriage, she was no where to be found, she had to go manila there was a death in family, she had to go to hthe wedding and all the suddenly, she lost her cell fone, and some one just found it  and this person dont speak english, she just found it at the air port, i just couldint believe, i am already at the Ninoy aquino Airport, waiting for her, aftere that i didnt even bother try to find her. i just came back on 03 june 2009, and she called me telling me she got job and she is going to USA??? by the way I am from Toronto, Canada, i still love Philippines, i love the culture most ppl have respect and i love the food, well i tried to forget her and iwas abble to find another beautiful Girl fromthe province we gto engaged and i am going back in december toget married, i have pics and videos of my X fiancee tons of receipts of money transfered from western Union, i forgive her, i have two carrabao and big frma under her name!!

POWER OF PUSSY

TO ME WAS MORE LOVE THAN THE

TO ME WAS MORE LOVE THAN THE POWER OF P***Y. I AM JUST THINKING MAY BE SHE FOUND SOME ONE WITH MORE MONEY, IWAS TOLD "SOME" VISAYAN WOMEN ARE LIKE THAT.

Dont send money to any one

Dont send money to any one you have never meet in person. Thats the first rule

One born every minute

I'm amazed when I read stories like this that there are still people out there who will send money to people on the other side of the world whom they've never met.

 

Don't they read the papers? Have they read anything on the internet about The Philippines? Even on the dating website FilipinaHeart they have a warning at the bottom of each screen about sending money to girls you meet on-line.

 

Folks - be warned, there are scammers out there and some Filipinas are very good at it. Good rule of thumb: As soon as they ask for money, start walking.

 

 

 

wow

do they really have a message at the bottom of each screen with that warning?  that's unbelievable - though what's not  

wow more stuff

  i really get a laugh now when i see things unfold . there is no warning these poor guys when they r lost in P.O.P>  it  now is a joke . after being hear a few years and seeing the scamme now i just laugh   im done warning these poor  fools the storys are endless now   i own a small hotel and get new storys evry week . i dont warn them any more  they are the fools . i have so many storys i could tell hear you could right volumes  also my own tiral and tribulationd of living her . yes it is tough sometimes . the worst is when im told im a white american and i have a lot of money so dont worry about it .. i now tell them to0 stick it . im 55 yo and not retired but fortunate to have learned how to make money hear . and yes the greatest satisfaction i get is when a stupid philipino gives me money for a three hour short time room in my hotel then extends for three more hours and has to pay 300 more pesos and he isnt smart enough to no he can have the roo for 24 hors at that price oh well .but there are so many storys . they go on and on fully enough to write a book about  .. there is a new one unravelling presently in digos that involves a guy from cananda that came hear as a misionary that was fully paid ofr buy the church and sent his beautifiull japanese wife and kids back to tokyo and hooked up with a parisioner girl  100 5 and gave it all up for her   including his wife and three kids   got the boot from the church and now is trying to settle in digos . oh the storys go no and on . i tried to tell him but he is convince he can buy land a beach resort and own a buizess hear wioth her .. oh so much more the saga continues oh well he is totally lost in P.O.P the real thing 22 yo phill girl 2 yrs older than his daughter haha oh well so much for virgins

 

Dating tips

Yes Peter, they really DO have that message at the end of some of the screens.

 

I've just checked again and they have a link to a "safe dating" website - http://www.onlinedatingsafetytips.com/

 

In there people can click on "Scams" (http://www.onlinedatingsafetytips.com/ScamOverview.cfm) to read all about on-line scams. There's a big bold warning on that screen:

 

"Remember the golden rule - NEVER SEND MONEY TO ANYONE YOU MEET ONLINE."

 

Tony.

 

That sounds like a good rule!

 That sounds like a good rule!  Sounds like from the other comment, that we need another rule for those we meet in person too 

more of the saga

 so i thought i would give a lttle update on the latest from my story   the ex comunicated misionary came to day to my place with his gfs papa and they had a conversation for a while   over a beer etc etc . so he came doun and i asked him how he ws doing   well he is ok it seems thathe is putting the land in his future ex papas name to protect the future ex wife from anything haha wow what a fool  the saga continues daily . he is goingto spend about 1 million all in all and then some and you no what it is all for not .. he wont listen he is trully blinded by P>O>P> and it is great because it gives me and my wife something to laugh about .. as someone wrote here blood is thicker than water .. he is happy becasue there will be a promissary note   wow thats a good one it doesnt mean shit here in the phills . it is really funny to hear the daily crap of storys .. yes he is blinded by a l8ttle furry thing he took when it bled haha

Many faces

One thing you can try right off the bat, after the girl tells you that she "loves" you, create a different account on the dating site or whatever you found her on,  (just find some random shmucks mug-shot from the internet) and send her a message telling her she is beautiful and yadda yadda...you know the shtick..tell her you want to get to know her more, and that you are wondering if she is single, or if she has found some lucky guy yet. 

 

Surprise surprise! I am betting 90% of the people who will do this will find out that: "Oh! .. how could I be so stupid? all she really wants is my money".

I think what we really need

I think what we really need is some kind of search engine that allows us to search for possible scam artists. Something that we can type in the name or email address and other guys can update details about the girl. I remember reading something about a site in the US called don't-date-him-girl (or something along those lines) which warned women off certain men.

 

I need to be able to type in "Mary Rose" or "sexygirl101@yahoo.com" into an engine and it comes up with:

 

Mary Rose - Filipina Heart.com

Rose Mary - findafilipina.com

aka Sexygirl101, sexygirl102, sexygirl103

aka Dirty_nellie@hotmail

Pictures: <.....>

Real name: Rosie Bilar

From: Cebu

Warning - currently has 5 American boyfriends.

 

You get the picture.

 

By the way, I made up the above details....apologies if it matches your current girlfriend :-)

 

 

all well and good   i agree

all well and good   i agree and like the thought but think about it would it have matterd to you or anyone of us when we are blinded buy P/O/P nothing matters when it come to terms of the heart there is nothing anyone can say or do to turn your mind from a beautifull looking philipina . your mind wanders where your heart goes and you r lost until it is to late . now after living thru this torid hell called phillipina love haha it has happend to probably 95 percent of us nd we have all learned the hard way . now to me it is funny and now have lots of things to talk about when i meet more foolish men lost in love . now after being here for so long it funny when the guys bring there gf to meet me the first thing they ask is how long have i been here and i tell them  and within minutes they are on there way because she doesnt want him chatting to me   wow itso funny . then the next thing they ask is my wife and how much is her allotment from me   what a fn joke at that stage . ive heard it all   the storys are endless .. there is so much to talk about now   its great ..last month there were 2 guys from ireland staying at my hotel   one was getting married to his virgin chat mate that had lived in this town her whole life   . wow what a joke  he needed to make a long distance call from the phone company and i told her to bring him to piltell she didnt no where the office was   oh yea it gets better   the she says she is going to college   and i said wow that awsome which one   she said the one on such such street   i laughed like hell   it is right next to the phone co. what a joke   the poor fool is going to marry her   she showed josy and i her passport   wow it was so phony   biggest smile i ever seen in a passport   .. oh weell there is so much more   . she speaks O englich none at all but she can email in perfect word   she has a  great coach . in the cafe   oh well i tried to tell him but it gets even better   now we have more to laugh ab0ut   . these poor fools are endless

Golden rule

Hi Tony, the golden rule i was following was then overruled by the power of sweet talk Visayan woman, her name is [names removed by moderator because this is an anonymous poster] JB,  i wasted thousands of dollars, mean while she was seeing another man (DJ) from USA, and eventually she married the guy, he is vice president of some rent to own company and  i am, simple manager. i would like to get revenge on this, but i dont know how and what to do, i was fooled  by the whole family for three years, sending thousands of dollars, every day some thing happened in the family and they need  money. but how can you tell if some one isa scum, especially a girl who comes and chat with you every day, in the morning and evening, you see herand family and they sees you on the web cam

Sorry to hear that Hemi but

Sorry to hear that Hemi but you've learned a good lesson (and everyone else who can learn from your experience).

I'm actually in Cebu today. I met a few women online and took a 3-week trip here. I spent a few days in Manila, then down to Zamboanga, over here to Cebu, over to Davao on Friday then back to Manila. In that time I'll meet 5 girls I've been speaking to on-line and I'll decide what I want to do after that.

Remember, you're in charge in this country, unlike in the US or England or Australia. You make the decisions and, although it's a horrible expression, it's a buyer's market when looking for love here.

Hemi, don't give up. There are lots of lovely people here so don't let one bad experience sour your feelings for this lovely country.

 

Hi Tony

I just read your previous comment - have you ever seen the site Dragonladies?

Sounds like a nice trip.  We live in Dumaguete, sounds like it's not on your itinerary though.  Glad to hear you are taking things slowly and thoughtfully.

Peter, thanks for that link.

Peter, thanks for that link. I had a quick glance at the main topics and it looks like what I was proposing.

I'm not planning a trip to Dumaguete this time around but I'll visit it in the future. I prefer the provences rather than the bigger cities like Manila and Cebu. I think it gives you a better insight into the Filippino people - both the good and the bad.

And yes, I'm having a good trip. I must admit that some of the girls  I met were not exactly what I expected. They didn't tell any lies but let's just say, there are some really, really good photographers in The Philippines. I'll never believe anyone when they say the camera doesn't lie

photographers and then other talents...

That reminds me how before I was married I met a few people who seemed different in person.  Once I went on a boat trip to meet one girl I'd met over the internet.  She sounded quite educated and confident both on the phone and in chatting online. Then when I got there, it was as if she couldn't speak.  Did she not understand me?  Was she just shy?  It was definitely the girl in the pictures, but something was totally amiss.  Some people can be so different in person!  I finally figured out that her housemate had been the one communicating with me and the girl from the pictures probably hadn't even known I was coming until I was already there.  The absurdity of some of the deception is so blatant that a person doesn't want to admit he was fooled by it at first, I guess!

As much as a guy might feel uncomfortable asking for it, I think if he's meeting someone long-distance he has to insist on seeing the girl in a high-quality webcam and seeing her hands actually doing the typing.  And of course "don't send money until you meet in person."

hello from eric taylor   when

hello from eric taylor   when you r in davao come on out to erics and josephines and shootthe storys iof life with us ghear at the beach in apllya we are only 1.5 hours from davao by bus and three kilometers from the buss line at applya beahc . check out our little hotel in craigslist in the philippines click on craigslist then davao the vacationrentals and look for outr little hotel called josphines cheep rent cold beer and lots to view   ok

 

Thanks for the invitation

Thanks for the invitation Eric. I've only got a couple of days there but I'll ask my companion if we've got time to go to your place. She's got a few things planned for me but it would be good to catch up with some ex-pats living there. It's certainly one of the cities I'm considering moving to.

 

 

I just must be cheap LOL :)

I enjoyed reading your post. And I still don't understand how these guys can fall for these scams????
Maybe it is because I am well travelled and have lived over seas or maybe because we have a large Philipino Community in the US citythat I live in?  Maybe it is because I work as an Investigator for the Department of Child Welfare and it is the nature of the job to be suspicious and not trust what people say until there is evidence that is proven credible.

To add to your stories, I have several Philipino friends who have been used and abused by their own families that   were living in PI. Some real sad stories but after getting burned they get real hard and let their family know that it is not easy in America and the bucks stops now. I have sent money to a "friend" before but never any big money to help out with studies. And I live by the rule that if you help someone it has to be out of the goodness of your heart, expecting nothing in return. So that why when you get nothing back, you don't feel slighted  

Anyhow I went to Cagayon and met her and her family. Very nice respectful family and I was very impressed. In our 5 year friendship she never once asked for money from me. But I must admit it would be hard to be faithful at first because there are so many oppertuinities there. Anyhow, we still are friends. I had a wonderful time and I plan on going to CEBU this time. Maybe it is because, I really don't give women money that I have never met and then if I do know them, it has rarely ever happend. My thinking is that, they are all adults, like I am and have to be responsible for their own problems and lives. While I would love to live in PI one day (my money would definately go further), it would have to be with a woman who loved her own country and wanted to stay there and not come to the USA.  Well, thanks agian for your sharing!!!

Great Site For Filipina's

I understand that for just being a Free member Filipin'a could win $100.00 USA
They are giving away $100.00 USA every month to a Filipina

Just what "they" need

Kind of a bizarre advertisement IMHO.  The last thing this country needs more of is to devote attention to lotteries. 

That's a pretty sad/funny story, Eric.  Thanks for keeping us up to date!

just wondering

I'm new to this, so please bear with me.   I have been involved with a wonderful filipina woman for some time now, but have yet to actually visit and meet her in person. We have communicated by telephone, webcam and a social networking site.  I trust her very much, but I'll be honest, I've googled her and checked her out to the best of my abilities short of hiring a PI firm. ( she told me she is a teacher and that all was verified on google) I will also say, this is my first long distance relationship and I could easily be fooled. Some strange things have occurred over time, but I always assume it's coincidence or just my imagination. One thing that troubles me is when were on webcam she will show me no affection. She won't blow me kisses etc and says it's because teachers there are schooled in ethical behavior in public. I can dig it, but blowing someone a kiss is really not that big a deal.. is it?? She always seems to be paying attention to only me and smiles only when it seems I have caused the reaction. Is there anyone who knows if this is normal behavior for a teacher there, because here in the states it certainly doesn't hold true. I have read the women there like to show affection to their men anywhere. There have been other things such as whispering I love u when she is at home sometimes and not answering her phone, then calling me right back and is obviously outdoors. She lives with her sister and little niece so that might explain the reluctance to say to much aloud. Or maybe I'm just another fool of many I have read about. I have helped her out financially because she has a little one and the story goes the father promised to leave his wife and marry her, then reneged after she was pregnant. She says she would have actually gotten in trouble if she pursued this man for support. Well thats enough of my laundry hanging out there lol. I would appreciate anyones educated opinion on this. Thanks for your time people. Peace...

just wondering

I have noticed filipina's are sometimes shy to show affection in public, such at the cafe. the girl i chat with also will not blow kisses if there is anyone near. As far as those other things i think u should be careful, specially if your sending money. By they way i think your a fool to send money for a girl you never met, but thats also just my opinion.

You Never Know

The one thing that most people here have in their heads is they never know whether anyone else (you) is being honest, so they won't let themselves be emotionally involved until they are a lot more sure of something.  So you never know if it's just that, or if they are actively trying to deceive you.   You sure can't find out she loves you through a webcam because she can't love you yet.

I think the conventional wisdom is that you are supposed to never send money to someone you haven't met in person (oops), visit the PI with an open mind, visit that girl and some other girls if it feels right to you (never lie though), stay away from prostitutes, and just enjoy the trip - if something happens with the relationship then that's a bonus.

Go visit

I've met teachers there and they're shy, they won't show affection in public so don't expect it and don't push for it. The story about the BF getting her pregnant and then leaving is very, very common so I'd believe that. If she's a teacher, and I'm sure she is, then she'll be well educated and come from a good family. She won't behave like a bar girl and tell you she loves you etc. You wouldn't expect it from a Western woman so don't expect it from her.

In terms of the development of the relationship I think you've come to the point where you have to go and meet her. You've "fallen in love" with someone over the internet but that's not real. You haven't physically met each other yet so it's not a real love until you test the chemistry. This can only happen when you meet. You may find that there are some things about her that you really don't like (annoying habits etc) and you won't want to continue. I'm pretty sure she'll like you as you're her saviour - you give her money and take care of her and the baby. Security means a lot to Filippinas and they'll put up with a lot to gain this security (e.g. marry an older man from a different culture).

I'd strongly recommend you pay a visit there now before deciding to take this any further.

 

 

 

thank you all so much for your input

 Thank You all very much for your quick response to my question and for you help. I really appreciate it !

Sounds fishy to me

There are so many Internet scamers out there one has to nearly be an FBI agent to ascertain the truth. Without a doubt, Filipina's are (in my opinion) the most attractive women in the world. Having said that, finding a very trustworthy one can be an uphill battle. I am most thankful that I have a conservative, faithful, hard working wife but I found her among 150 others.

Yes it its a great rule. The

Yes it its a great rule. The one and only rule. Their are good and bad on every Island. When mom,pop, and the whole family come online to say hi that should run up a big red flag. Also take your time. Sooner or later you'll figure out the difference between the power of p***y and the genuine honesty of a good Filipina. Also, if they are separated stay away, most of those are scammers. Also, if she has a job, a computer, nice clothes, nice cellphones, blah,blah, but no passport, I don't consider them serious.In fact if they don't get a passport on their own I don't consider them at all.

good luck guys,

somewhat experienced.

Scammera are indeed...

Thank you for your insights.  This scamming is an explosive INDUSTRY.

My friend is now in the Philipines. He - also a white Australian Churchgoer - has tried online involvements with two Sudanese women. One worked for the World Council of Churches in Switzerland. He then 'met' a woman from the Philipines online who claims to be a Pastor.  He is now there in Mindanao due to return in soon.

i'm not in favour of mixed-race involvements. 

Philipinas have a bad name for gold-digging, led by larger-than-life Rose Hancock

Marriages of convenience, eg USSR, Philipines, African work only in one party's material interest and the subsequent breakdown in relationship will have a great effect on the man's mental and financial health.  Men should think more about such long-term issues.

Men shouldn't be so desperate to marry.  If people rush into things, they always make mistakes.  Sure, Western women-ness is all messed up, and such women are often anti-men and anti-society.  But there just might be some women out there happy to be thinking creative women - not coquette-mag-perving or gossip-mag-reading apathetic, cosmetic-caked bimbos.

Giving up TV would encourage creative non-gossipy thinking - by both sexes. Thinking is so rare in the West.

be very careful of a girl

be very careful of a girl named lara dela cruz of quezon city,,,she has a son named lucas,,,has a tattoo of his name,,,she will say or do anything to take your money,,,do not trust her,,,

how lucky the girl is

dont worry, u can still meet worth girls for u .. . 

hello I would like to show

hello

I would like to show all of you man out there how simple is to find a good women.

When you find a girl you like, write to her like this in the first letter.

Say that you like her and would like to meet her in person in 2 weeks time. Make shoure she needs to take a bus to meet you at your hotel. It should be 3 to 6 hours ride for her.

Never offer or send her money, ever. Say to her you will call, her when you arrive at your hotel.

Give your self 2 weeks to write back and forth. Ask her to send to you scaned ID or Passport.

If she comes to see you at your hotel and she does not make love and does not suck you off she might be a contender for serious relationship. How ever you will need to stay there for 20 more girls and try to fuck all of them to find a good one. Good one will fuck after 2 weeks of you will need to make the engadment first.

One thing to remember. You must fuck at least one women per day, every day your there.

But not the ones your interested to Marrie. This way your balls are empty and head is full of questions.

Good luck.

Wise man.
