Some Filipino men can be discriminating and choosy, but any woman—non-Filipino or otherwise—who is confident in herself will not have difficulty getting a Filipino date.
They are often thoughtful, sensitive, romantic, and sweet—though of course these are generalizations.
Men bring their culture with them wherever they live, so whether you are a foreign woman living in the Philippines, or you are dating a Filipino man elsewhere in the world, you will want to learn what makes Filipino guys unique.
If you want great eye-candy, then enjoy him as a date, but that's it. He may not look like the over-hyped geek on reality shows, but there are Filipino geeks. Intelligent-looking guys have a special allure that draws certain women.
A geek can be serious, and he might seem to be more interested in his studies or career, but scratch beneath the surface and you might find a real gem.
This kind of guy loves a good intellectual discussion and you better be up to the challenge.
He is the kind of guy who remembers the special days in your life, brings gifts, and treats you like a princess. Make it clear to him that you are not looking to settle down.
Otherwise he might propose before you have even celebrated your first anniversary.
He is often attractive, savvy, and slick with the girls, but if you are wise you will be careful and not fall for his charms.
He often brags about his magnetic personality and, indeed, women are drawn to him naturally.
He generally takes care of himself by going to the gym and wearing hip clothing.
He is the life of the party and is aware of his effect on women.
If you don't want your heart to be broken or if you are looking for a real keeper, better not to touch the Cool Hunk with a ten-foot poll.
He can be fun, but a long term relationship is simply not what he's looking for right now.
