Are you planning to travel solo? This is based on my personal experience and life story. We both want to buy land to build our very own yoga resort in the Philippines. Also, if you travel in mostly Asian countries, having a Filipino passport has way more advantage than his, he has to pay more than me! Why do you care? If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again! I even had five freelance jobs at the same time in Hanoi, Vietnam as we wanted to save more than ever!
I taught English, yoga classes to children and even handled the Marketing Department of a western-owned company while in Vietnam, oh did I mention that I won a Vietnamese reality TV show?
He works, I work. He saves, I save. I want to be modest here, but straight to the point. Well, if you think so, shame on you! We both became yoga teachers and Ayurveda massage therapists because of my crazy idea of supporting our long term travels. If he marries me, he will marry and support my whole family.
Again, it may happen in some cases, but before marrying their Filipina wife, the foreigner must already have met the family, right? My parents are both Professional; my younger sister is also a Dentist while my younger brother is about to finish his University degree. The foreigner is dating me because he needs a slave. I wonder if these people ever stop to consider that these feelings and actions are returned by the man.
We share the cleaning in our house, but funnily Jon is better and faster at it than I am! Young western kids often have jobs when they are growing up, not because the family is poor, but to earn some of their own money and to get some real life experience and responsibility before leaving school.
Not all White people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation. Western countries have the range of incomes and living standards just like we do. If everyone was rich, who would clean the streets, or do menial tasks that no one else wants to do? The only real difference is the higher value of their currency in the world, which just makes their own countries very expensive to live in and other countries cheaper to visit!
But this only works if they earn money in one of the expensive countries. Only desperate Filipinas are dating Foreigners! There are good and bad in every country; nationality has very little to do with it! Again, maybe some Filipinas marry out of desperation, but this could happen in any country, not just in the Philippines. We all know that most of the stars in the Philippines are half and half, perhaps we can make the next Anne Curtis, Sam Milby, and Alden Richards.
Cheers to all Independent Women out there!
