There are girls in Cebu City that are marriage material but they won't be the first girls you meet. Here's all you need to know about meeting the naughty ones, from a Filipina.
Cebu City Girls
cebu city metro doesn't have a lot of good girls they are mostly in protestant churches
my girl has a "fake sister" from dateinasia and her and her mom are working foreigners and her sister has a job and is smart and attractive but she is really stuck on herself and cheap girl even though she is 30. i can't imagine any foreigner wanting to marry her it would be like marrying an american girl.
my girl is originally from zamboanaga too bad we dont click and she isn't sexual so i have to get rid off her after this trip
definitely. when i visited areas away from teh city i got a lot of looks whereas anywhere in cebu city metro area not really. cebu metro is saturated. Cebu is very cheap and i know the area though so im in a dilemma. I dont want to go to mindanao or provinces of cebu which seems the best. i prefer taxi and dont want to be running around the backwoods with my head cut off.
That may explain why I was so unsuccessful on my second trip to Cebu city. What do you mean about the taxis? Don't they have taxis in Todedo?
what happened on your 2nd trip?
i would imagine if you go off teh beaten track everywhere your gonna have to use a lot of daygame cause girls from the dating sites will be all over the map and very few in each rural city and it would be silly to visit one town just for a single girl online unless you were planning to go through that area anyways. In mindianao there is some decent sized cities that have a prescence online of girls but i dont really want to go that area and i haven't really looked into how many are online but i just seem to see a few mindanao cities always have someone online or messaging me.
outside of cebu city metro there is no taxis as far as i know. I never been to toledo but i thought only the big metro areas or big cities have taxis although my girl said even zamboanga city has taxis but i think they are a large city compared to most.
maybe someone has some ideas of a modern city that isn't trampled by tourist but has a mall and taxis? I was thinking bacolad in negros but never been there i think they dont even have taxis there either when i reserached even though its a decently sized city.
also its damn boring in the province or beach that gets old real quick. i like to shop at a regular grocery store and mall so need a ayala or SM nearby.
I went on a lot of dates, but nothing worked out long-term. It turned out that the girl who I liked best already had a bf on the side, who she got married to. I think my lack of success was mainly due to having so little time there (only 10 days), but it may also be because Cebu girls have been ruined by all those horny American men going over there and spoiling them rotten.
my girls fake sister was bragging how some handsome guy took her on a nice first date at an expensive restaraunt, and another handsome young german took her to the casino (he lives there). she is a dumb picky slut with attitude. Some foreigner just came in town and is spoiling her mother now. she is a total bitch too like a western woman. I would never go on a nice date anymore with a girl i didn't know just a cheap date. I think a lot of foreigners are spoiling these cebu girls also.
I heard guys going to mindanao on another thread who were young though didn't get much attention maybe cause teh girls are so shy and reserved. mindanao girls are very backwoods and conservative. im not looking for a wife.
I'm preparing at the moment a trip to the Philippines in November.
This plan will be first by going to Pattaya like 2 weeks and after going to the Philippines for maybe one month.
I've tested one dating site and i found the responding ratio,interest better for filipina than for Thaies,so it's a good point.
As my trip is not very soon,one month before the travel i will start seriously to prepare the ground.
I was thinking going to Cebu but the reviews are mixed.
Manila i've heard is to be to some points avoided.
What to do as most of the girls are from Manila and big cities like Cebu but there you are more confronted with the pollution,the overcrowding,the fact cities women are less approachable in general than countryside and the farang exotism is less prevalent?
I won't do as in Thailand where i can go there without knowing somebody..i hit Pattaya and i know what to do but in the Philippines i'm not for this.
So i hope to atleast land around 10 reliable contacts if i can say like this.
Where it will be..that is the question?
I want to avoid crime ridden places like i've heard of many parts of Manila.
The names of Puerto Galera,Dumaguete,Boracay keep coming back on many forums.
Does somebody here have reviews?
Day time cold approach is not my speciality.
I'm more an introvert guy and thanks to the bitchy antipathic behavior of women at home and yes it's maybe better than in the US here in France but it still sucks.
I think i will do correctly in the Philippines as in Thailand i'm ok.
Hoping to hear more of you detaling your experiences and for those who have done both Thailand and the Philippines,your opinions are welcome.
There are taxis in Cagayan de oro and Davao for sure, though I have nothing against trikes and will even take the occasional jeepney.

I was just in Dumaguete and it's a very nice city. I was there with my wife so not sure of the girl situation but with 4 colleges/universities in the city I would imagine you could find a girl or two.
Boracay is the top tourist destination in PI, so you're going to find lots of Chinese and Koreans there. It's a nice place to take a gf or wife but not sure it would be the top place to meet a Filipina.

I was able to meet quite a few girls in Mindanao. You should be safe as long as you stay in the north. A central hub in Mindanao is Cagayan de Oro. From CDO, you can hit multiple destinations like Illigan city, Ozamiz, Butuan and even Surigao.
In CDO, I stayed at the Apple Tree Resort(http://appletreeresortcdo.com/index.html). When I stepped out of my room, I was only a few feet away from the beach. There is a mall and plenty of restaurants within a 15 minute taxi ride. Looking at the website, it looks like the prices have slighty increased since I was there a few years ago.
Surigao is another nice little town right on the water. I stayed at the Tavern hotel(http://www.hoteltavern.com/) and absolutely loved it. There is a nice island resort not far from Surigao called Siargo island. I didn't get a chance to visit there but on my next visit, I will check it out.
The good thing about these small towns is that you don't have a ton of foreigners there so you kind of stand out to everyone. For me, there was no need for "game". I was able to meet ladies from the Internet who also introduced me to their friends. As long as you are not into P4P, you should do fine there.
Men chase, women choose
As long as you have gold in your hand, you will ALWAYS have bread on your table.
I read some thread on another forum and it sounds like CDO women are strange and hard to get laid compared to other cities (inclding davao and cebu city). and that its very backwoods and poor. I think a lot of the girls there will be slow to put out and often be scammers due to being so naive. Sounds like davao would be better option if one is gonna go off the beaten path but not too extreme. although i think the airport in davao isn't near the actual city i think someoen said? thats a huge con.
