Discuss and talk about any general topic.
zacb, I didn't want to jump on the cynical bandwagon, alongside Lone Yakuza and clowny, but I do realize that at your age, I once fell for a gal, who was into spirituality and prayer. Well ... let's just say that it didn't end well. BTW, this woman already had a green card (from her parents) and thus, wasn't fishing for a visa. Instead, to my surprise, she was clandestinely fishing for an investment banker but kept it under wraps. Proceed with caution, good luck.
16 years ago, the Best Picture of 1999, "American Beauty", telegraphed the message of Happier Abroad to the world.
Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.
What are you bringing to the table in this relationship? Do you have money, social status or family connections?
Scammer or not, better to have the experience while young, without much to lose, than the stories you read where someone doesn't find out they've gotten with the wrong person until after 10 years of marriage and he discovers kid numbers two and four are not his.
So, yeah, good luck, Zacb.

What I found to be a good way to filter girls is to impose goals on them. Tell them that they need to finish a certain degree or get a job with a certain amount of pay for you to be serious about the relationship. This forces the girl to bring something to the relationship and forces them to invest their energy and time for you. The gold and green diggers will start abandoning ship after this. And I don't think doing this is materialistic because it is simply testing girl for her heart.
Go and live in her country is the best way to check her out.
She is from Quezon City. She also mentioned she is currently in college for IT. She is going for her bachelors, which she will be done with this year.
I was also considering that too. I was thinking of maybe having an extended vacation there (maybe a month or so at a time). And what I meant by found the one is not per se marriage, which is possible, but more of a girlfriend. I might have overreacted in my wording. I maybe should have said found a date or something like that. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Like I said, I don't want to rush anything yet. First I want to see her before committing to anything.
looks like you found yourself a decent gir
I guess I missed the part where zacb's girlfriend is a religious zealot. I would likely think, that with 5+ months of chatting, that religion has come up and the two of them know where they stand and if there are comfortable with each others beliefs.

Yeah, we have talked somewhat. She is Baptist (which is fine) and I am leaning toward Quakerism, but I am not for certain about that. I am all for a personal religion (relationship with God), but I just have a problem with the churches. Technically, they are not even theologically correct, but I guess it comes down to your own personal view on the matter. So as far as basics, yeah we agree, but some of the theology might be different. Anyways.
So... she's fat.
And she's probably an asexual tomboy/lesbo/feminist to have chosen IT.

zacb, I suggest you test her. If she still has an online profile, have another guy contact her online and have him pretend to be rich. See how she reacts. That should answer any doubts.

WITHOUT legal marriage. And using condoms.
If that's against your morals, fine, good for you. Then just visit and don't have sex. Then go home and think it over.
I am more than happy to play the role of the rich guy...I can be a smooth talker
