Probably not a big deal for graduate degrees but undergraduate their entrance exam is pretty tough from what I hear. This is why you'll find more of the wealthy attending De La Salle University or Atenao. There are many other lower tiered Universities her too but they won't be recognized as well back in Western countries. If you want to use your degree in a Western country best to go to the top three as mentioned in a previous post. Maybe you can include University of Santo Tomas (http://www.ust.edu.ph) as well but I personally would avoid others unless you don't care if they are worth shit or not outside the country. I've included websites in a previous post for the other universities.

There will be beautiful, average and ugly girls in any of the universities, one needs to pay attention to intelligence and character as well when looking for a Filipino GF. Looks don't last beyond 30 with most of them unless they are somehow health conscious and exercise and thats only a very small percentage. Most Filipinos have rocks for brains and are not independent thinkers, they tend to group think to the lowest denominator. So it's best to take your time and date numerous women and sort out the good from the bad and know the difference, cause they can be tricky and mask their negatives until you're well into a relationship with them and it's more difficult to pull away from. The women do have positives here as long as you find a decent one that has beauty, brains, and moral character. If you are missing one of those your life will become a living hell eventually, so choose wisely!

Pay attention to birth order and how many brothers and sisters they have and how old their parents are or if they are still alive. If the girl is the eldest in the family or older rather than younger in the family she will have more responsibilities to deal with in relation to her family and that means you will have to deal with more bullshit whether its family or financially related. Better not to get involved with women from large families or who are the oldest in the family. If they are the youngest thats better cause less BS to deal with. Just what I know through experience living and dealing with the everyday mindset of the people here.



what if one wants a woman 20 years younger than them. They will have to settle on the education or personality issue i think? And before you say dont settle ill say the search is hard enough i have to settle on some issue LOL. and id rather fight a simple mind who is 20 years younger than a college educated or ambitious woman with attitude who is equa to may age. I agree on moral character too though i wouldn't settle on that.


The mother of my kid is a simpleton, and believe me it has its drawbacks. I won't be making that mistake again. You go ahead and try it, have loads of fun like I'm having dealing with some new stupid shit everyday that doesn't need to be worried about that anyone with half a brain can normally deal with. I'm not saying get a brainiac, I mean someone that can think for themselves and you don't have to babysit and make 100% of the decisions all the time. :roll:

(1) Please do it

(2) Please post about it

PS we will all hate you
:wink:

i'm trying to do that as we speak in this second-tier city
in colombia. there are just hordes of cute/hot women in this city it's totally ridiculous and they seem to have a nice attitude. everyone's SO nice.
it's been a bit gut wrenching to be honest though cause i kind of feel out of place, and i don't want it to be obvious WHY im really there in the uni. but i'm kind of addicted to pushing my limits. thankfully everyone here puts my age at 25 so hopefully i'll do ok.
oh just to clarify i don't think i'll register for classes but rather provide english tutoring.
more on my next update
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

yeah my last 2 liveins were so retarded it was a constant battle holding my anger etc. LOL All in all though i got them to serve me and massage me. etc. Would a educated girl do that? probably Would a educated girl divorce me? Probably. So i think ill take a girl 20 years younger who treats me good then a independant minded woman who is my same age and might leave me or give me more attitude. If i can find a girl who is very submissive and traditional who i can trust who is smart of course I would be happy but usually the smarter or more sassy they are the bigger pain in the ass they actually are I think. If the middle class girls were so great then you and rock would be married after all these years.

If only it were that simple. Those two liveins of yours probably served you because you had an agreement with them. They swapped the uncertainties of having sex and serving several men (with the dry spells in between) with the certainties of having a daily allowance for serving a single man.

If you ever were to find a young woman who looks and sounds devoted and submissive, you would still have a 80% chance that she would gradually change and show her true colours, perhaps alone, perhaps helped by her family.

You can never be sure about someone's true intentions, even after many years of a relationship with them. And even when you could be sure about their feelings at an early stage of your relationship, people tend to change and their feelings will change, too.

The only safe way, perhaps the only way, to embark in a relationsip with a woman is to find somebody who has as much as possible in common with you, including a desire to change, to develop and evolve in unison. That's why it's also ever so important to be yourself, not what a trend or a book tells you to be, as that's the way to maximise your chance to attract that kind of twinned soul.
