    I'd say filipinas should always ensure the safety of their foreigner boyfriends. Imagine the Briton took all the hassles to fly thousands of miles away from home just to be with his filipina gf only to be slain here in the Phils? I think it is really embarrassing. I think if ever there is any risk or probability of danger, the couple should talk about it to defy it. Honesty and open communication are the vital keys here.

    that is very sad, it could happen anywhere in the world i suppose, but probley more so in more corrupt countries like rp where ther is high poverty and corruption at high level. 2 billion dollars or 13% of rp budget is lost each year 2 corruption and is ramant in every level of goverment from bureau of customs to traffic police pulling over drivers to demand bribes, and i have experianced the police corruption personly. it dose not set a good standerd for most ordinary people from rp. and on internet dating i personly think its very dangerous to meet someone and certaintly from abroad that you no nothing about, only what the other person tells you about online. i personly have not and would never let my kids meet anybody that they met on a computer....

    Yes it can be true BUT I don't agree that it does happen all the time. I mean, not all you chat on a computer wherever he or she lives is a bad person. Let us take for instance the woman in the news. She could really be in love with her Brit bf.....and decided to want to spend all her life with him.....but unfortunately the wrath of the scorned suitor went insanely ablaze.

    Very sad and Im sure many of us both Brits and Phils have had worries and possibly even possible actual incidents where ex's have shown up or be about.

    From my own experience no jealous lovers, but its worth making sure you know whats going my Wife had not told her Parents where she was when I first met her. Luckily nothing happened and once she let them know what was going on all was good. But it could have been so different if the cause of events on that trip had taken another path i guess.

    A mate has just gone to Phill and although he has been a couple of times this time the situation is a bit complicated and luckily he has a plan B (my family over there as a refuge and to offer any assitance) Myself keeping in contact.

    Im amazed how many Brits and possibly Phills especially on the first trip dont seem to tell those who actually know them in real life where they are going and what they are doing or even have a plan B.

    What happens if the other doesn't turn up?

    What happens if they are not what they appeared?

    What happens if things dont seem to be safe for you?

    Not sure if it would have saved this poor gentleman to have a plan B hard to say but still worth thinking what to do if things are not going to plan.
    Oh lord why did you make so many clothes and shoe shops

    Would you worry about your Daughter meeting a guy when out? Lets be honest many men and women put on a different personna when out just as they might when online..

    In some ways as long as supervised (if underage) or if older sensible steps are taken to check things out and get to know the person It may even be safer.

    Lets be honest who is to say the person met in a cafe or bar (not saying your daughter goes drinking Junior) is who they claim to be? ID can be faked and plenty of people pretend to be what they aren't when out socializing

    I know there have been examples of perverts claiming to be young boys or girls when older, but now Webcams are so common place both on computers and also slowly on mobiles a sensible informed person should be able to make some basic checks and be fairly safe.

    For me this situation was never an issue.
    But we all know it can (although not normally) happen.
    I agree with the comments of 'somebody'
    But still it's so sad to hear of something like this.
    Sometimes life is so 'cheap' in RP. We need to understand this.

    I do think many fail to understand from the west how important honour and face mean to many. I think many of the issues with crime say in London (ie gang killings etc) which seem pointless are about not losing face or honour..
    It doesn't matter what it costs personally, but face must not be lost, somebody needs to be taught a lesson and the issue avenged.
    Look at family honour killings just the same doesn't matter what the cost is but the issue must be resolved.

    In the UK indigenous population this happens so rarely it appears in comparison, that often it seems to make the headlines in the media. In populations where poverty means people have little but their own self respect it means far more it appears.

    Dont think you can simply reason with a guy who thinks he has been humiliated because his "Lady" run of with a Joe. Phill culture just like every other culture on the planet is very complicated and not as simple as it seems to the outsider. Let the locals take the lead in resolving the issue..

    Also another possibility is the Gentleman didn't even know of the other guy I have noticed Pinays can be selective in what they say sometimes not wanting to say things people dont want to hear or read. Hoping things will be ok or somehow sort themselves out

    PHILLS do tell your partner what they are going into be Honest about previous relationships and family setups (many Pinays seem to hesitate to mention Babies and children in case the man is put off)

    This sort of story gives Filipinas a bad rep abroad, the way it is reported 'Impoverished Philippine women often use matchmaking websites to find foreign husbands in the hope of escaping the country for a better life.' although to an extent has some truth, it automatically brings a summary to the story that the woman concerned and by extension all filipinas who date a foreign man are doing so for a visa. I think generally the west still has a pretty racist attitude toward far eastern nations, I think the reporting on this article supports that.

    The mention that the British embassy couldnt be reached for comment made me chuckle...the embassy isnt open on sunday-obviously even in the case of a British national being murdered.

    That was my thoughts exactly. The reporter obviously knows very little on the story so is just adding cliches to bump up his word count.

    Already one filipino comment putting the reporter in his place.

    Crass "tabloid type" report very short on detail. Who's to say the murderer isn't an enraged jealous ex boyfriend from a relationship that finished months ago ?

    Yes I agree to that filipino who made the comment. I wanted to add my comments too but I don't wanna register.

    Anyway, I think it is very common for our very own kababayan and also by other countries to regard filipinas having relationship or just plain friendship with the foreigners as impoverished, hoping to find foreign husbands to escape life in the third world. Lets say for instance in my case, when my relatives and friends learned that I subscribed to internet connection in 2004, most of them advised me to find a foreigner partner to improve my life....and that really annoyed me coz that time my only purpose is to be able to access the internet for my son's school homeworks. It is so sad that people tend to generalize the Philippine women as impoverished and failed to see that some pinays can be like Gabriela!

    It's a sad story really, probably we'll never know?

    One wonders whether he'd ever met her before? & wanted to declare his undying love for her, which would have been stupid on his part? Sounds likely?

    Whether she was stringing him along & had forgot (conveniently) to mention the boyfriend?
    Who knows?

    Lots of questions?

    i very much doubt a british merchant navy officer would have not even met this "loved up over any white guy with a passport" filipino. of course he would have met her before! it's 100% likely he met her through his job.

    i've seen those type of girls before, but they're everywhere, thailand, china, philippines. as soon as a white british guy shows any interest, they're all over them, and 'in a second' will ditch their current native asian bfs........... in this case, obviously this filipino broad was "extremely" dumb

    having travelled a lot, and seen a lot, i would be hard pressed to find any girl in asia who didnt immediately think of 'money' or a 'passport' when meeting a white guy, especially a british guy. you can say what you want in reply, scathe me all you want, but i've both seen it and experienced it.

    In case you aren't fully aware of the fact, THIS is a FILIPINO/UK forum ... therefore, kindly refrain from making generalised derogatory statements - that are both unfair, and far from the truth - about Asian women!

    errr...obviously, you haven't traveled and seen that much! NOT ALL GIRLS IN ASIA are what you are saying...NOT ALL GIRLS WHO ARE MARRIED/IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH A WESTERNER OR JUST PLAINLY MEET THEM THINK OF MONEY/PASSPORT...I am working in a multinational company and all of us there meet lots of foreigners...and what do we immediately think when meeting them? MORE OVERTIME WORK AND STRESSFUL DAYS! there are even lots of employees in the company who doesn't want to be assigned onshore and refused to get a visa...maybe you only traveled and met these girls that you say in places which offers in return for a payment...but even in those places, not all of them like what they do for a living and often just because of poverty...yes they may want westerners because they can offer a lot in terms of money...but DO NOT GENERALIZED.

    Are you the author of "How NOT to make friends on a Filipino/UK Forum"?

    I've lived in Britain for 40+ years and all I can say about the majority of birds these days is they are all slappers, and would jump in bed with any guy for a ciggie, or a ping of guiness. Generalising I know, but that makes them not better than the women you are generalising.

    By travelled a lot you mean you have interacted with the whole population of the countries you have been in? You see If I was from Asia and just visited Moss Side, in Manchester, I wouldn't have a high opion of the UK, nor all it's people.
