Fil-West Relationships.. Interesting!

-- Are Filipino guys more traditional? If so, does that mean their values are more intact than that of foreigners?
-- Is the stereotype true that Westerners have a less of a sense of spirituality?

-- What about a foreigner's view of commitment in a relationship?
-- How are they as mates- are they jealous, possessive?
-- Is it true that normally a stronger woman is better off with a foreigner?

Are Filipino guys more traditional? If so, does that mean their values are more intact than that of foreigners?
- Speaking of, my husband is very traditional, and so has strong values... Filipinos are traditional, but nowadays generally, guys are very ambitious, esp. in their choice of partners, they’re getting off traditional, unsa to, dili mangasawa ug dili nurse, kahilas pud, maau mag-doctor.. Magpabuhi cguro sa asawa. hehe joke dalang tinuod. Few good men westerners and Filipinos alike still stick to a good tradition, the world is not that ruined after all.

Is the stereotype true that Westerners have a less of a sense of spirituality?
- Being a Filipino does not mean one has a good sense of spirituality, being religious maybe, big difference there, same is true with westerners. And I am glad my husband has strong sense of spirituality.

What about a foreigner's view of commitment in a relationship?
- It is the same with the peoples from any point on the globe, it is the individual’s conviction and principles and the choice he makes towards being committed or not; but generally, foreigners are more loving in that they treat their Filipina partners as their princesses. On the other side, kung kinsa pay uyamot, mao pay magbinuang, mangulata, palahubog, etc, hehe. Sad but it happens.

How are they as mates- are they jealous, possessive?
- My husband is very jealous and possessive, but why, I’m jealous too, but we don’t choke each other by our jealousy; it’s flattering sometimes because some jealousy can be healthy too. It is deep trust that ease it.

Is it true that normally a stronger woman is better off with a foreigner?
- I don’t think Mr. Cupid includes shyness or strength in his criteria of targeting the arrow, just kidding…. it’s a long way, half of the world away; he must be precise, hehe, not so funny.. It does not matter really in our level of confidence in ourselves or our strength, but one thing does, your soul mate will always be a complement to yourself, no matter a westerner or not. But even the weak in spirit will be strong in a foreigner's land.

What I'm saying is, that we are all equal in this world, no one is supreme, westerner or not, whatever skin color we have, whatever country we were raised in, we all gasp for breath, it is what is in the heart that matters, and how we value our relationships. (I got this tag from Melody, a woman who is into mixed relationship herself, like me, :-) I'll pass this to dai Annie. :-))
