Filipino dating forum
The Filipino lady sends the user a link to an adult chat site and states that the service is free and a credit card is only needed for age verification.Several weeks later the victim looks at their credit card statement and sees billing for adult chat services.But, besides this and the fact that I'd been riding high on the wings of a dream and basically trying to carve out my own career path, one of the biggest reasons why I shunned the idea of inter-racial relationships was the usual impression or public perception or even stigma attached to exotic Filipinas involved with foreign men. That Filipinas involved with or marrying foreigners are only after one thing -- greener pastures in the good old US of A or any western country! To make the long story short, I found love when I wasn't looking for it, from the last place on earth I'd thought of finding it, and with someone I never dreamed I'd find it with -- a foreigner.Thus formed the basis for long-standing jokes about what to look for in a future partner: someone who has the "4 M factors" or Matandang Mayaman, Madaling Mamatay (Old, Rich, and Soon to die). Of course, love didn't happen right then and there but the "connection" was instant. That I was so desperate for a man I had resorted to acquiring one through the internet?If not that, then someone who has "CAR-acter & PESO-nality". I had only met him and yet it felt as though I'd known him all my life. Then came the nagging thought of what people would say about "my destiny". That I was no different from those who went for relationships or marriages of convenience?So, why should every Filipina who has what it takes to make it in life want to become the object of such unpleasant public perception? It was as if I'd been created for him, and he, for me and we were two souls fated to meet. But then I reminded myself that I already knew what the common perception was on exotic Filipina-foreigner dating even before I met my foreign boyfriend and so, no matter if I had no other reasons for getting involved with him other than that I truly loved him, the world would still choose to believe the worst.
And you probably wouldn't have liked what I had to say.
Typically this involves asking a victim to send a small amount of money to buy food, pay for daily living expenses, internet access, hiring a private room with a webcam or numerous other variations on the above.
Filipino scammers may also ask you to send money for plane tickets, visa fees, marriage annulment fees or other travel related expenses. In one variation a Filipino asks you to send money so that she can purchase a webcam for an online video chat with you.
I wasn't even looking, believing love would come at the right time and not something that is actively sought after or relentlessly pursued.
Of course, for someone who considers herself old-fashioned and a true-blue romantic, for me, love had to come with all the fancy trimmings -- magic in the air and the unexplainable rush of emotions running riot in the heart, sending the senses reeling.
