Dating filipinas in us
(It helped that I attended an All Girls Catholic High School so there was very little temptation.) But when I finally started dating my non-Filipino boyfriend, there were a few things he needed to know:1. One cultural value that Filipinos pride themselves on is “close family ties.” Filipino families — and generally speaking, most Asian families — are very close. A Filipino family is bound to own at least one (because different ones have different songs, duh). Guys who showed interest in dating me saw it a challenge when they found out I’m saving myself for marriage.
Everyone pitches in to raise a child from grandparents to godparents to the next door neighbor. As soon as I became old enough to date, my mother told me, “We don’t care what ethnicity he is, as long as he’s Catholic.” Because we’re from a strict and conservative Roman Catholic country, most Filipinas you meet most likely observe Catholic holidays, are active in church, and wear religious paraphernalia; a cross necklace, for instance. So if you get invited to a party and everyone is drunk and singing, I’m sorry, but you cannot escape the mic. They think they can slowly pressure me and break me down, but Filipinas are raised to believe sex is for someone you intend to spend the rest of your lives with.

such as myself, tend to wait until our late teens or early 20s to start dating because we’ve been raised with the belief that family and our studies come first.
In fact, historically, Filipino courtship involves the guy doing service for the girl’s family (fetching water, fixing a broken roof, etc.) as physical proof of your devotion to her and the family. We Filipinos also have a saying: “If you wanna court the girl, court the mother.” Trust me. At the same time, I know some Filipinas who don’t mind if their significant other is of another religion or don’t identify with a religion. When my cousins in interracial relationships bring their significant others to our home for the first time, they’re always overwhelmed by the amount of food my mother manages to prepare in a two-day period (Yes, two. (Our Catholic religion plays a part in that, too.) Of course, some Filipinas tend to be less sexually conservative than others, but even then, they probably prefer not to talk openly about their sexual experiences.
I guess Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and his men had at least some influence on the gene pool of Manila.
