Success in the Philippines, September 2012

Postby noog » September 21st, 2012, 7:44 pm

I left for the Philippines August 31st and returned September 17th. I will keep this post relatively brief and not recount my entire trip because that would take a lot of time!

I met the girlfriend I had met online in Tagaytay on Sept 1. I vacationed there with her, her mom and cousin and we had a great time. The chemistry between my girlfriend and I became soon evident in person. It didn't take long to fall in love and see how I had found a really great woman and the right one for me.

After asking her parents' permission to marry her, I rode the zipline at Picnic Grove and then got down on one knee and asked her to become my wife on Sept 4th and she accepted. The proposal caught her by surprise and was an amazing moment for both of us. A few days later we returned to her home to meet the rest of her family and we had a nice engagement party there and also fun at the nearby seashore. The two of us then got away to a beach resort in Puerto Galera to spend time alone and continue to enjoy each other's company. We then returned to Manila to spend a day there and say goodbye as the hotel driver dropped me off at the airport.

I can honestly say I hit a home run with this woman. She is both lovely and loving. She is very young at heart yet caring and rational. She is 21 and beautiful yet humble. Her family was very kind and I got along with them great.

I'm so glad I took this leap of faith and I look forward to getting her and bringing her to the US (approximately 5-6 months I hope) so that she can get to know my two daughters and we can get married. I need to give my sincere thanks to the people who had my back on taking this chance - a few personal friends and family and also Pete from these forums have been great to me with their support.

I'll include a few pictures here as they will tell a better story than I possibly could. It was a trip that I will never forget and I feel in my heart this is a great start to the prosperous marriage we can have in America. Take care all and I hope this inspires someone else who is marriage-minded on here to take a similar leap of faith.

I agree. Cosmo-thin women can be fun to look at, but I prefer to have my arms around a real woman. She is the real deal!

She's very cute, she actually looks more Indonesian than Filipino. The most important thing is, she has a good heart and will hold you hands for many, many years to come.

Good luck dude! How long did you know her online before you met her in person? What is the total amount of time you spent with her in the Philippines? Just be careful, these girls can be very ulterior motives for the long run, like you supporting her family!

Hi again,
Sorry if you already told us this. Did you ever see any other girls in the Philippines or is this the first Filipina girl you met in person. Did you live at her family's house. How many brothers and sisters does she have. What was your fiancee's job when you met?

Don't mean to be so nosy, but I'm trying to put everything in perspective since I've dated over there too.

Nice looking girl! Curves are good as Asian women with curves feel so soft. Are you going to have kids? You could easily have a house full of cute mixed babies. Filipino/white mixed kids are adorable, and the girls often look like models when they're older.

Also I've seen that guy with the red hair in China - he gets everywhere and is super popular with the ladies.
In February 2013 I quit my boring job and now I'm Happier Abroad...

Great photos noog and once again congratulations :) It's always great to see positive successful posts here on this site so the other good men out there who read this forum can wake up, save their money and travel abroad for a meaningful relationship. In a way I envy you man cause I don't fly out to be with my fiancee until Dec. 4 and the days are dragging on. Lol. Best wishes for you and your fiancee and I really hope Noog's success story wakes up more good men so they seek abroad and forget about the dating scene here in America.

Most of my backstory can be found here ... http://www.happierabroad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15146

She has two younger brothers. I did spend some time at her family's house while I was in the Philippines. She is one I decided to fly and meet after chatting seriously with several other filipinas online.

I'm not worried about ulterior motives ... I am willing to help her family a bit, but there are boundaries.

She said her family has a fair amount of Spanish in their bloodlines.

We're not having kids in the near future. I'm focused on raising my two daughters until they have left the nest. Maybe down the road we could have kid(s) ... but I had a vasectomy, so it could get complicated and expensive. It's a big commitment and not something I would rush into.

Since Google is all over Winston's nutsack I cannot post a link to my 2009 porn of me doing a Pinay BBW.

Noog would like how the chick looks that I was smashing.
