UPDATE: We’re engaged and getting married next year!I will be getting a Long-term visa to visit UK but I’m not interested in getting a British passport or citizenship as what others are assuming because we don’t have any plans to live in the UK, as long as my future children will have dual citizenship then that’s great for us!
I’m not lucky cuz I’m with a white man – we are BOTH lucky to have each other cuz we deserve the best! Check out our DIY Travel Guides here and for cheap hostels around the world, check the list here.) This is also for all the Filipinas who are being judged for dating a Foreigner instead of our Filipino men!
Here are the most common misconceptions that I want to clear up – We would love to hear other Filipinas’ stories so please feel free to share your experience below !
Ok, so they have more ‘free countries’ than us, but it balances out, because when they pay, they pay big!
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!
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. And yes, poverty does exist in western countries, it just doesn’t the same impact in a news headline as a photo of a small brown child with flies on her face!
Aha, so being warm and hospitable and loving towards your partner means that you’re a slave? I wonder if these people ever stop to consider that these feelings and actions are returned by the man.
British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.
If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll meet a lot of travelers – mostly European, and being a backpacker you shouldn’t expect another backpacker to take you to an expensive restaurant – oh and he’s British btw.
After few months of just keeping in touch on facebook while I continued my solo backpacking, Jon and I decided to be officially together, and we’re now together for almost two years!
I’ve dated Filipinos before and was even in a long-term relationship with one!
