1. Family-Oriented

Family is always a priority for Filipinas. They want their family to be successful in life and it is normal in the Philippines culture to make any kind of sacrifice for the family  well-being. Mostly  to help financially, be it to parents, younger siblings, or even aunts and uncles. Filipinas will prioritize their family over themselves.

The Philippines have one of the most overseas workers. It is common for them to leave their homeland and work abroad where they can make more money and then send the money back to their families in the Philippines. Filipino women value family so much that they would do anything even if it means working thousands of kilometers from home.

Of course, this does not apply to just their families but also to the families they want to start themselves. Filipinas make perfect wives and mothers as there is nothing more important to them than happiness of their family.

2. English Speakers

Many foreigners are attracted to Asian girls, but the language barrier is often a huge problem. Asian girls don´t usually speak English and if they do, it´s usually just basic phrases. Of course, it is harder to develop a relationship with someone with whom you can communicate only with difficulties.

If you are dating a Filipina, you will not have any communication problems. English is, besides Filipino, the official language of the Philippines. English is taught from primary to secondary education and thus most educated Filipinos are bilingual. If you meet Filipina in big cities like Manila, it is almost certain that they will speak English fluently or at least they will speak Taglish which is a combination of English and Tagalog.

3. Perfect Travel Partners

Filipinas are down for anything. They love trying new things and they are smiling even when the conditions are not great. They don´t mind long rides on trains or buses, they don´t complain when a hotel room is not the cleanest. Where you go, they want to go and they are always a great company.

If you love traveling, Filipina women will be great companions. You don´t have to be worried about any dramas when something doesn´t go your way which is often the case when on the road.

4. Loyal Partners

There are many stereotypes about Filipinas and Asian women in general. Stereotypes like that Filipinas are with foreigners only because of their money and a vision of a better life living abroad. Because of that, relationships with Filipinas are often viewed as ones not based on love. If someone is with your only for the status, how can she be faithful?

Even though it is true that many Filipinas are in search of a boyfriend for a better future, this could be said about some women in any country. This does not mean that all Filipinas are like that.

If you get to know them, you will discover that they are proud of living in the Philippines and that they are not interested in your passport.

They look for a meaningful relationship and if they see you are fully committed to them, they will give you their everything and be faithful girlfriends and wives.

5. Outgoing Personalities

Of course, it cannot be said about all Filipinas, but in general, Filipinas tend to be very social. They like going out even if it is just strolling around a mall.

If you like to sing, you will have a lot of positive points as Filipinas love doing karaoke. There are many karaoke bars in the Philippines and Filipinas enjoy spending time there.

6. Respectful

Filipinas don´t have respect just for their families but are also respectful to you and your family. For instance, the majority of Filipinas are Catholics and Christians, and they are faithful to their religion. However, if your religion differs or even if you don´t have any, you don´t have to worry that your Filipina girlfriend would force her beliefs on you. Of course, she expects the same from you.

7. Importance of Parents Permissions

When you date a Filipina, expect to meet her parents very early on in the relationship. You already know how important family is for Filipinas, so it is not surprising that her family wants to see if you are a suitable suitor.

If things get serious with your Filipina girlfriend and you decide you want to marry her, it is expected that you ask her parents for permission first. The more family members you ask the better. If, besides her parents, you ask also her siblings and grandparents, you get extra points.

8. Limit Public Display of Affection

Even though Filipinas are less and less conservative, PDA is still something many Filipinas try to avoid. If you are not sure your girlfriend´s stand on this polarizing topic, limit affection in public to just holding hands. Holding hands is acceptable and it cannot go wrong. Other than that, it is better if you ask your Filipina girlfriend directly to avoid putting her into an uncomfortable situation.

9. Talk About the Future

If your Filipina girlfriend sees that you are serious and honest with her, expect to have a conversation about your common future early in the relationship. Filipinas want to be sure from the beginning of the relationship that you are looking for the same thing as them. If you are not living in the Philippines and are just visiting, then you can expect even more questions.

You have to understand that many Filipinas have rather bad than good experiences with dating foreigners and they want to be sure that you are not dating them just for fun.

10. Affectionate Partners

Filipinas give their everything into the relationship. They want you to feel loved and show it to you fully. When dating a Filipina, lack of affection is never a problem. Besides hugging, holding hands, and other physical interactions, they often ask about your day and your current problems. They don´t ask just for the sake of asking but they also actually listen to you and want to help you if possible.

11. Jealousy and Insecurity

One of the most prominent signs that a Filipina likes you is that she starts being jealous. It is very common that Filipinas directly ask you early on if you are talking to other girls and also about your past relationship. If you remained a friend with your ex, it can be a problem. Filipinas can sometimes get insecure even over the smallest things like when a cashier smiles at you at the supermarket.

12. Open Communication

Filipinas quickly notice if there are any problems in your relationship. Instead of analyzing what the problems are, they prefer to directly ask their partner and discuss even the unpleasant things openly. This can solve many problems early on but sometimes Filipinas think there are problems even when there aren´t any. If you reply that all is good, they will keep asking you if they think otherwise. The best you can do is asking her what makes her think that things are not going well.

13. Passionate About Food

People in the Philippines are proud of their cuisine. Your Filipina girlfriend will most likely frown upon you if you eat just the Wester food and don´t try the local cuisine.

If you try some Filipino delicacies like balut (duck embryo), you will get positive points not only from your girlfriend but also from her family. Foreigners usually don´t have the stomach to even try it so it is kind of a big deal if you do.

14. Willing to Relocate

Filipinas are proud of their homeland, their history, and traditions, but they usually don´t have a problem with relocating. They are used to relocating for work and don´t have a problem relocating to be with you and start a family.

But obviously, they will want to visit their family in the Philippines often. Even when Filipinas get married, they are still very attached to their families and they would not be happy if they could see them only once every couple of years.

15. Good at Finances

Filipina women are very hardworking and even though they are natural homemakers, they are also ambitious and pursue success as professionals as well. They work hard and know the value of money and will not spend it on unnecessary things. Filipinas are financially responsible.

Why Should you Date a Filipina

There are many pros of dating a Filipina. They are kind and generous, always smiling and trying to help. A family means everything to them so they make perfect wives. They are affectionate and beautiful and will try to make you feel loved at all times.

Now you know what it´s like dating a Filipina. If you stay committed to a relationship with a Filipina and make her feel loved and don´t give her any reasons to feel insecure, she will stay loyal to you and be your partner for life.
