I've realized that Filipinas that want white foreigners as husbands or boyfriends prefer ones that are only average looking. The reason for this is if they are too handsome, they will assume you've already been with a lot of girls, which they won't like of course. If you are average, they will be satisfied since you will be still be taller, whiter and richer than Filipino guys, so it will be enough for them. If you are only an average white dude, your height, eye color and features will still be considered much more attractive than the local guys. It will be plenty to give some desperate local Filipina the 2 most prized possession in the Philippines: A baby with a foreign father, and the free money that comes with it.
The other problem they want average white guys is Filipinas don't want to feel too ugly compared to the white guy they hooked up with. Since most Filipinas are not attractive, and have very low self confidence, a white guy that is too tall or good looking would be too much for them to handle unless, they themselves are very attractive, which is rare. The whole short, brown, and poor vs tall, white, and rich thing is too much for most Filipinas to handle, so they settle for some average white guy that couldn't get a girl back home to save his life.
If you are a better looking guy, you can score the better chicks, but many girls won't trust you because of your looks. Other girls will be so shy and not confident around you they will just say forget it, I can't meet you, sorry. I've experienced this a lot and it sucks.
My in-laws were worried for my wife a bit at first because I am rather handsome guy and they were afraid I would prove to be a womanizer. When I told them I never had a serious girlfriend before in my own country they wouldn't believe me. My wife herself also had a hard time believing that, but eventually learned to trust me. When I proved myself her family to be a man of my word, they began to see me in a better light.
They thought I must be some sort of artistic type (I am) and as a result must be into things like free love and not be a big fan of monogamy. It took them a while to change their opinion of me. My father-in-law recently admitted that at one point, his wife and him had a conversation about me and she said: "He's too handsome, he will leave her. But at least we may have a beautiful mulatto grandchild from this relationship". Haha, they were quite pragmatic about it.
As far as height and money go, I'm not extremely tall nor am I that well-off. I'm six feet tall and in a country with most women being around five feet, that's rather on the tall side. Had I been 6'4" things may have been harder but so far, so good. I do have looks, a good face and youth which can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on what you are looking for; some women seek out older men exclusively, assuming them to be more financially and emotionally stable. Good thing I didn't end up with a golddigger.
A serious guy can get a woman in the Philippines no matter how good or bad looking he is, I believe. I don't think you are a serious guy, Will, so this shouldn't be much of an issue for that. The only thing you seem to be serious about is boning a great deal of women, and I can't imagine being good looking will be a hindrance if a stable relationship was never your goal to begin with.
I agree with you. I had tons of Filipinas flirting with me everyday in Cebu even when my wife is with me. The last time I had a white woman flirt with me was 13 years ago. About half of Filipino guys leave their wives for younger women which is a huge problem for a single mom with kids in a third world country. Filipinas want a guy that doesn't drink, smoke, gamble and that won't run off on them. Also, most Filipinas want a guy under 6 feet tall. Tall white guys have long penises which is painful for them.
That very well may not be true. Compare a map of average penis length by country to one of average male height by country. For example, I think Mexico and Colombia are at or near the top on the first one but only fall in the lower half of the second.
My wife's quite a short lady, but has wide hips and some 'junk in the trunk'. Never had much problems with my own junk beyond the first week or so. You just have to "break them in" a little. If a woman is able to give birth and pop out a baby, she's bloody well capable of taking just about any size of dick. If you're handsome it probably helps, too; they'll be wetter and more eager. Filipina's have such a long history of getting it on with foreigners of all heights, sizes and ethnicities that I really don't believe it's much of an issue in the large scheme of things.
In my own experience, my height and overall size was intimidating for her at first but not for long. Her main concern was us being "mismatched" when people saw us, because of the height difference. She also worried about giving birth to eight or nine pound babies. Ultimately, all her concerns and worries did not happen and she was fine. I wasn't a cheater, we don't look mismatched, our sex life is wonderful and our baby came out at a perfectly average 6 pounds.
Thanks goodness we have finally addressed the real reason some Filipinas prefer foreigners - "dako otin."
But back to poor Will N and his problem of being too handsome. I have 3 comments in no particular order of importance:
1. Pinoys cheat shamelessly, so Filipinas grow up assuming that most men (handsome or not, foreigner or not) also cheat.
2. Let's face it - a lot of foreigners do come to the Philippines to play and most of the girls know it. So her assuming you are a player is not indicative of your overwhelming handsomeness. She knows that a foreigner has access to lots of girls and assumes he takes advantage of that.
3. Since white skin and long noses are by definition the epitome of attractiveness in the Philippines, most guys who don't get much of a 2nd look in their home country, are considered handsome (or at least better than average) in the Philippines. She's not obsessing about the guy's 6'2" height or massive physique. She's obsessing about the white skinned/blue eyed babies she hopes he will give her.

I mentioned this in a rather softer fashion and get called out for being Eugenic and have a superiority complex. Pssshhh
Yet I see some agree.
Yea I've never read anything where height was a factor in genital size. Majority of porn stars are of shorter stature anyways. Of course this lends to the abnormal effect and camera work though.
I have read a study where people with Index fingers that are shorter than ring fingers could be associated with larger members
Have you stopped looking yet?
Penisology was not my major in college so I could be wrong. I'm just guessing the average NBA player is hung like a horse. Like former NBA player John Salley, 6'11' center for Detroit.
