    That's another option. At least they're easier to strike up a conversation with than British women.

    Oh, Jamie ... so , to learn that! Today's actually the first time I've been on this thread for ages, so I hadn't realised anything was amiss when reading your posts on other threads last night.

    Travel sites such as this one:

    http://www.travbuddy.com/Philippines...l-partners-c86

    There are quite a few locals who will show you around their hometown/area including females. Of course they may not be looking for a partner, but's it a good way to meet new people - and you never know, it could lead to something. Obviously it's wise to be wary especially if you're being escorted around cities such as Manila for example with a relative stranger. It only costs ten dollars to contact members which is around 6 I think - and that's a one off payment I believe.
    Probably lots of semi pros on sites like that, just like all the other sites.

    Of course, there are Pinay's out there who want a man for all the right reasons. I know a few here in the U.K. They're the type who don't mind going out to work to support their family in the Phils and don't expect their husbands to shoulder the burden.

    And let's be clear about scammers. They come from all corners of the globe including Britain. Any woman who marries a man for financial reasons is a scammer in my eyes, regardless of their nationality.
    I think most woman in this world are attracted to wealth.
    Let's face it most paupers are not going to make good husbands.

    I won't go into reasons, just boredom I suppose, but I have been chatting to both Filipino and Thai girls over the last year and have found Thai girls more likely to be in work, maybe because there is so much money being sent to families in Philippines from overseas workers and they have been made lazy, or the economy is not as good.

    Language is a problem in Thailand though, but I do like Thailand and prefer the food.
    The Philippines is much more western and the culture is not so different to ours.

    Thailand and its people are far removed from western culture.
    Thai people don't even think along the same lines us.

    You sound a bit defeatist there, LM.

    Not all women are materialistic, some see a man's loyalty for instance as a form of wealth.

    At the end of the day there is somebody out there for everyone and you need to install a positive belief into your mind that someday you will find her.

    OMG you're right there.

    Absolutely don't want to go too deeply into this, but it's nuts how some people compare Thai's to Pinoy. Maybe it's both coming from SE Asia, and some people have trouble telling the difference. It's a bit like this - some say the Scots and English are different, and we've been in the same country for centuries. Few would deny there's a different temperament between say the British and Greeks or Spanish - and these are all Christian (nominally) countries.

    Thais in religion, outlook, temperament and many others are very different to Filipinos. Neither is "better" of course, just different.

    Many people have come a cropper going into relationships with Thais, as they have failed to realise a huge culture and temperament difference.

    Well, that and there's a disproportionate number of men going on holiday there and getting entirely the wrong end of the stick with many young women working in the resorts.

    PS Thai food is awesome, one of the best in the world

    Someone once told me Pinay's believe that marriage is a gift from god whereas Thai women believe sex is a gift from God.

    Its them who should be cautious over you les.
    The cost only 250.00 bargain I thought as I accidentally deleted her

    I did meet a girl which brought me to this Forum a few years ago. She was there when I arrived, but more importantly we had spent 18 months chatting.

    I would chat at least 6 months before considering going over again as it gives you a chance to see if she is genuine

    My impression and knowledge of the dating sites is 2 out of 5 are genuine, I reckon.
    I feel sorry for the girls who chat with you Les.

    Seriously though Nick, do your research first there are good and bad on there. Even if you don't find anyone to meet over there you can still have a good time. Just do your homework on the culture of the country.

    It's easy to tell the difference between Thailanders and Filipino's......Thailanders cannot say "Sainsburys" and Filipinos cannot say "Sheet" without it sounding like something else! lol

    Actually I have a very good standard of living here in London and my house is paid off already

    I will never get married again because I want my property to remain mine

    Getting married and purchasing houses or lots in the Philippines is for the loved-up lot who think things will never go wrong. If it does you only have yourself to blame

    I will probably end up living with a Filipina in the Philippines in rented accommodation of course

    Marriage or bringing someone to the Uk will never be in my plans

    When I split with Maria, I said to myself, if I was to meet another Pinay abroad I'd either live with her in the Philippines for two years or regularly visit her for a minimum of five years, before thinking of marriage.

    I'm not particularly. I'll make a guess the guy isn't in a relationship. and make a guess (without trawling back through his posts) he's either divorced or has friends who are and whose ex's have walked out and taken everything leaving him stood in his underwear.

    Your opinion often changes a lot when you meet "the one", but whilst your single, that mindset from being stung in the past is very strong.

    Been there done that. Some of us just like wedding cake. Would I do it again? Well there is no need I think these days,

    But I will say this, what is mine is Ems. For what she has given me in such a short time she is worth every penny
