Now, it can be told and I must admit that, yes, once upon a time in my life, I had frowned upon such relationships and found myself thinking that I couldn't possibly get into something like that.
And, if I did, I'd have to be either desperate or simply out of my mind.
I told myself that as long as I'm happy and my conscience is clear, the whole world can believe whatever they want. Our award-winning expatriate business provides health benefits to more than 650,000 members worldwide.

I guess, for me, love has to be an important ingredient in a relationship because I had never been the kind who would get into a relationship all for the sake of having one. More often than not, things just have a way of showing up in your life when you least expect them and the next thing you know, WHAM! Which was exactly what happened to me a few years ago. Friends thought I was too serious with life and was "all work and no play".
There'd be no point in getting involved with someone or even marrying if not for love. I hadn't really sworn off men then but I didn't exactly relish the thought of finding one via an online "friend-finder" club. So, after all of their efforts were met by my usual "WHEN-I'M-GOOD-AND-READY-I'LL-ASK-YOU-TO-FIND-ME-A-MAN" retort for several torturing months, I finally surrendered in exasperation just so they'd stop pestering me about it.

Whether your travels take you to Manila, Cebu City, Quezon City, or Angeles City, you will find jaw-dropping attractiveness everywhere.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. Unlike in Thailand where there are just a handful of reputable dating sites from which to choose, the Philippines has more high quality options than you can count. naval presence in the country, the people of the Philippines are actually quite open to dating foreigners.A good online dating site has a large membership base and an interface that doesn’t require a rocket scientist to figure out. If you are an English native speaker, people will be quite friendly towards you and definitely curious to find out more about your background.
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.
