Filipinas are notorious for online dating and marrying older foreign men. It’s common in the Philippines to see couples in which husbands are much older than their wives. This is a widely-known Asian culture that most foreigners don’t understand. In the Philippines, it’s acceptable for a Filipina girl to marry a man who is 15 years older than her. While in other cultures, this is likely frowned on.
Why are these single women from the Philippines, specifically in Davao City, desire older foreign men? What must be special about the older foreign men?
Aside from the fact that it’s a culture in the Philippines, Filipinas seek older foreign men because they are ready for love. They are dating to marry. Marriage is the end goal for them once they indulge themselves in dating. The majority of Philippine women don’t like to play the field and younger men in their country tend to do so. Thus, they would rather prefer to date an older man overseas.
Foreigners in the Philippines have a good reputation being life partners. They are seen as responsible and faithful. Filipino women are done putting up with all of the infidelity issues of local men, thus they choose someone who is ready for responsibilities and commitment.
If you are a foreign man trying to get a girlfriend, don’t be surprised if young Filipinas take dating seriously. Most Filipino women are known to be faithful partners and will always find a way to save the relationship whenever it is going through some rough patches.
