Interacial dating theory
Even if someone does decide to remain at home to look after the family and home, that’s a personal choice which also involves a lot of hard work. 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.
So it was their choice if you still want to marry despite the condition! We are not rich, but my family lives comfortably, and we were brought up to be independent.
Jon even leaves the Do Not Disturb sign on the hotel room door because, ‘it feels weird having someone come and clean up after me! Not all White people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation.
We’ve had complete independence since 1946 people, get the grip!
I funded my South East Asia backpacking trip with my savings then when Jon and I started living together, we always shared our expenses, from food, rent and everything (that’s the British way, in Tagalog “! When I met Jon, he had empty pockets and a 0 broken down motorbike.
If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!
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? All of my teaching, volunteering and freelancing jobs have been through my own research, resourcefulness, and commitment.
So don’t tell me that we Filipinas just stay at home, waiting for our partners to feed us!
So maybe it’s actually foreign men who need the visa, not the Filipinas!
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?
When we decided to pursue our around-the-world backpacking journey together, we both worked hard to build our initial funds! No matter what success we experience, people might still think it’s because the Magic white man got us here.
I even had five freelance jobs at the same time in Hanoi, Vietnam as we wanted to save more than ever! I want to be modest here, but straight to the point. This website was started by me, Jon wasn’t really into it, but with a little persuasion he joined in and started writing too. We both became yoga teachers and Ayurveda massage therapists because of my crazy idea of supporting our long term travels.
We Filipinas can also travel to any country in the world with our Philippines passport so why would we need them if we can already get things on our own!?
