This thread isn't about me. It's about finding out how much this guy really knows about Filipinas.

His comment about "punishing" women by not having sex from them sounds really disturbing to me. Really creepy.

You missed the j/k tag at the end of the remark, though I admit it took a nonstandard form. Not too different from a few things you have said in complete seriousness though tongue.gif

Peace
Fritz

May you find what you want in life,
know it when you see it and
have the good luck to get it
... and keep it!!!

Raindreamer, I think it might be you with your blinders on that can only see one and only one view of what Filipinas "are" and what their values and likes are. I have known many Filipinas throughout my life and none are as you describe them. You are going to be so unhappy and your future wife will be so unhappy if you try to enforce this one ideal on a real flesh and blood human being. You cannot look into her head or have experienced every moment of her life to decide how she should think in every situation. Every woman is unique and she is not a thing that has been manufactured especially to fit your needs and desires. The most important thing to a long and happy marriage is flexibility. You will have to learn, maybe over years, how your spouse feels and what she wants. If you make it clear to her (as you have to us) that only your thoughts and desires matter, she may keep quiet and let you think she is with the plan, but she may later reach her limit and assert her individuality (as she has every right to do) and it won't be pretty if you are still in this fantasy world that what you dream is how it is.

You owe it to her to understand how she feels BEFORE you lock her into a marriage and cause her a lifetime of suffering trying to meet your expectations. Your "best intentions" are not enough. She is one individual. She may or (most likely) may not conform to every preconceived notion you have of what a Filipina or devoted wife is. Many of us here, who are now divorced, entered that marriage with the highest ideals and hopes but not enough sense, patience, or flexibility to grow as our partners grew and changed. I can guarantee that the second year will not be like the first.

Once again you misread what someone typed. This is what he typed...read it real slow or you just might not get it.

"when my women misbehave I just punish them by WITHHOLDING sex."

It was a joke and in no way did he say he would punish them for not having sex with him. blink.gif

Read what is really there and not what you wanna read to fit your agenda to belittle, berate, or just plain annoy other members here.

It always strikes me as odd that many of us speak of "Filipina's" like they
are a classification or a certification to master and study. It is like some have created
a whole educational series for these woman and turned them into an ART and/or SCIENCE.

1) you obtain your associate degree in Filipina Beauty and Simplicity
2) then; you get the Bachelors in Filipina Courtship and Marriage
3) You can double major in Courtship & Marriage then also Tampo & Submissiveness

ok, so now you are really an expert but, if you so desire then
when you are ready, you can seek

Masters Credentials in Filipina Spouses and Family Commitments ( MFSFC )
we also can offer you a
* Masters in Filipina Provincial Spouses ( MFPS )
* Masters in Eldest Filipina Sibling
* Masters in the Modern Filipina Spouse

* of course, that is a requirement for acceptance to your doctoral studies
if you would like to pursue your PhD in

Most of my prerequisites and undergraduate work I did online in a yahoo chat room. I was going to pursue the Masters in Eldest Filipina Sibling but there just does not seem to be much call for it given the current market situation.

I will be the first to say I am not an expert on filipina or the culture and I have learned a ton from people on here. (most recent fun fact is that it is not odd that my gf wears her panties in the shower)

Though I have much more to learn I know enough to know I am in the right game.

Are you for real? Someone tell me this is not a real person and that adobo took the name of someone who was a bit odd anyhow and changed one letter.

Okay...if you are real. Sorry for calling you odd but not much worse than you calling people creepy. I would be far more worried about my daughter being with a person who views themself as above everyone else and is unwilling to examine why they might not be.

I'd like to hear your explanation as to what it is that makes some people creepy. Do you profess to be a Christian? Is that the root of your value system and behavior?

ok
one of the professors recommended that I
leave this post here;
finished version - for better or worse

It always strikes me as odd that many of us speak of "Filipina's" like they
are a classification or a certification to master and study. It is like some have created
a whole educational series for these woman and turned them into an ART and/or SCIENCE.
it sound like this; ....

1) you obtain your associate degree in Filipina Beauty and Simplicity
2) then; you get the Bachelors in Filipina Courtship and Marriage
3) You can double major in Courtship & Marriage then also Tampo & Submissiveness

ok, so now you are really an expert but, if you desire then
when you are ready, you can seek

Masters Credentials in Filipina Spouses and Family Commitments ( MFSFC )
we also can offer you a;
* Masters in Filipina Provincial Spouses ( MFPS )
* Masters in Eldest Filipina Sibling ( MEFS )
* Masters in the Modern Filipina Spouse ( MMFS )

of course, the * indicates that this is a course which is required for acceptance to your
doctoral studies if you would like to pursue a PhD in Living Happy with a Filipina

1) please see the registrar, Mr Grismer for enrollment
2) all admission to Graduate studies must be signed off by
asst Dean for student development; Prof Fritz
3) any challenges to academic requirements should be directed
to asst Dean for academic integrity; Prof Bacon

also note; Dean Hawk will be hosting this years alumni dinner
at the Pinoy Club on North Rush Street, tickets still available.
Guest Speaker this year will be President of the Alumni Assoc, Southern Don
who will be addressing " Silly Postings " ;
there will be a raffle held and the winner will receive an opportunity
to shoot that thing in Hawks tree, taxidermy fee's covered by prize winnings.


ok,, so I poke a little fun but;
isn't getting to know and understand a Filipina just as important
as knowing and understanding ANY spouse you choose ?
it just feels like some are painting with
broad brushes and it usually never works when
dealing with people and wives huh

To be honest, you are really the only creepy one that I see here.

I feel sorry for any woman or man that gets in an emotional relationship with you as it is quite obvious that you are emotionally retarded.

Seek counseling is my best advice to you before you ruin some innocent persons life. But I am sure you will just ignore this as nobody can counsel you since you have all the answers.

I will be happy when you decide to no longer post here. We don't take your advice and you don't take ours so why are you here again?

Rainy, my hope is that you will fall in love with your wife after you are over being in love with the idea of marrying the perfect virgin Filipina.

Speaking for myself, I didn't look for a Filipina with the "right" ridged set of qualifications. Rather I met a woman that I fell in love with who happens to be a Filipina. The relationship between the two of us is not limited by our nationality or our past perfection or "mistakes" we may have made; that is just the background in the painting and matters little compared to our future together. We will certainly make mistakes and have rough patches ahead, but we are determined to work through them together.

It is not what you start out with that matters (that will be over in an instant). What matters is what you end up with at the end of the journey.

LMAO! I thought you were trolling at first. Now i realize you are just an idiot. Looks like you are pretty good with the ladies too, as it only took you seven years to find one that wouldn' t immediately send u to the "friend" category...lol.

As for me getting to know the Filipino culture, I've learned quite a bit in the past few months, talking to 'real' pinays and not westerized ones. I speak with my gf everyday and we are getting along great. I'm learning Cebuano and have read all I can find online about Phils and its people. I'm sure i have a lot to learn, but I'm getting there.

Thanks to everyone on this board as I have learned from ALL of you. But its' still surprising how many of you have bad attitudes and negativity. Seems like if you had found your dream girl/dream hubby, that you would be much happier by now.

Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.

Sorry about that. I was just practicing how I shall handle the eventual tampo. ****just a joke****

Well, my LTR is still going strong! Already, it's the least dysfunctional relationship I've ever had. We are over two months into it, have talked or chatted every single day and keep getting closer and closer. She is simply the best and just by example is making me into a better person too.

It's funny. When I first came on this site, I thought it was strange how some of you guys would romance a girl online for a few months, and then visit her for a week and propose. It seemed a little hasty. But now, I'm starting to understand how it could happen that quickly. When you know exactly what you want, its easy to 'go all iní once you find it.

But I am intent on making this relationship the most legitimate it can possibly be and when I visit her next month, we will at least try to take things slowly. But I guess that is easy to say when she is so far away. In reality, we will probably just attack each other at the airport or boat dock and I will be shopping for rings by the end of the weekÖlol.

As for my travel plans, this past week was big. I got my new passport in the mail and then bought my air tickets. I also quit my job and have started tying up all my loose ends. My planned stay is for four months, and I figure that is more than enough time to see if the Philippines is for me. But Iíve been in worse places and managed to enjoy myself. And Texas summers should have conditioned me to not be blown away by the heat and humidity over there. If it doesnít work out with her or the country, so be it. But for now, I am committed to this.

So I leave on Dec 2. Needless to say, we are both very excited. But Iím trying not to get my hopes up nor have too high of expectations. Nothing every really goes according to plan, especially with relationships or in a third world country. Combine those two and its anyone's guess what will happen. But at the very minimum, it will certainly be an adventure. And that's something every man needs to have in his life. smile.gif

Good luck 41! You'll love ORMOC city. Real nice place. Take your Girl to TRN. It's straight up Rizal street from the Dunkin Donuts. They have a nice lounge there with a singer and pianist. Don't remember the street name....sorry. But your girl will find the way. Be ready for the armed guards everywhere also. Kind of odd to us westerners. Take the bus trip to Tacloban and see the MacArthur monument. South on the road out of Ormoc is Sabin resort with great food and a nice pool and live band. Agalon resort is further south from there and is real nice too. And for SURE take her to Guisano to shop! A fairy ride overnight to Cebu is great too and loads of places to go on Cebu island. Just a few ideas for you and your girl will appreciate not having to make all the "where will we go" decisions.

Paul
