Wow, sorry about your negative experiences in the Philippines, Ghost. It's not a country for everyone. I think more HA'ers should take note and be more cautious in thinking the Philippines is some kind of p*ssy paradise but having said that, I think your being a little too negative.
Lots of other's have done well there including Outwest, Davewe, Pete and others. I think everyone's experiences in a country varies...depending on many different factors, i.e. race, money, etc.
Thanks for your story,
You cannot let them bring you down.
Just because others treat you bad does not mean you should let them. Raise Above.
Women are F#ck!ng Evil Everywhere... But do not let women bring you down. Keep meeting them until you find one you like. Maybe you should find one in China where they are more intelligent.
There are other countries outside of the Philippines.
For Philippine women their priority also all the time is to get married. If you do not want to get married to them they will treat you bad. Even many whores want to get married to a foreigner they F#*k.
Shitty story, it does happen. Every country has its down sides and low scum looking to score. Its not just foreigners but well off people and middle class that get drug into some mess as well.
Before my last trip several friends lost a total of around 700 dollars for a trip they were gonna allow me to tag along on. We were going to Boracay for 4 days. The scammer? A roommate of a few months who backed as a travel agent. "Planned" the trip for us. Luckily I hadn't paid yet but those girls lost money they truly couldn't afford to lose. It sure does leave a sour taste in your mouth and makes it hard to know who to truly trust.
But as Zboy mentioned its not all bad. It just happens that the bad experiences have more weight than the good. 2 months, though a solid time, is still not enough time to fully gauge the country. There are a lot a very awesome and honest people in the country.
Where did you meet the girl? What was her economic status? 2 months and wanting marriage seems extreme even for a filipina. I understand emotions are hard to overcome but from your story there seemed like some legitimate warning signs right off the bat.
Anyways you live and you learn.
If your gonna stay there for months and waste time and money she better give it to you many times a day for the rest of your stay or find someone who will. If your seeking a virgin wife then go for one otherwise dont waste your time on girls with attitude.

2 months is nothing if you never been to south east asia. I can't imagine being new to philippines for only 2 months and finding a hot virgin church girl to marry lOL
Shit happens, chock it up as a lesson learned. The same thing almost happened to me. I dumped the Filipina(she's with another guy) in this photo just before I married my wife. Boy am I glad I did she was a high risk investment.

If a Filipina starts giving you gifts, birthday cards etc... it means she's serious about staying with you long term.

what exactly happened? You were in davao?
I was chatting with her only but things were kinda serious between us. When she asked me for money I decided to end it and marry my wife. Smartest thing I've ever done.
Was it that fast?
I chatted with my wife for 2 yrs before we got married so we knew each other fairly well.
Taco most guys here want virgins or women with no kids or models or girls with makati education. So unfortunately your success story wont be replicated by anyone else. lol

If you let people disrespect you like that it can only go down hill from there.
It's tough to set boundaries but sometimes you just have to do it.
People will respect you if they see you can just storm out (literally and figuratively).
This requires either not giving a damn about being alone, or having plenty of options (this latter is better of course).
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?
