Most western guys searching for women from the Philippines do it online.
It's easy, quick and can be done from anywhere in the world.
You only need Internet access.
It helps if the website is fully mobile friendly such as Pinay Romances.
Gone are the days of being tied to a desktop computer.
Filipina or single 'girls from the Philippines' are very active on online dating websites.
While many Filipina do not own a desktop computer, the widespread use of smartphones and mobile access, in the Philippines, gives them easy access to online dating and a potentially better life with a foreign man.
The Philippines has always been a popular holiday and retirement destination the western men.
It is a stunningly beautiful country with its' fair share of stunningly beautiful girls.
While the Philippines has a rich culture, it is an economically poor country.
The Philippines has a higher unemployment for females.
More filipina are going online in search of a better life and that usually means a life with a western guy.
These filipino women are mainly Catholics.
So prepare yourself for any conflicts their religious beliefs might have with your own.
Personally I wouldn't think too much about it.
If you are a devout Mormon then maybe you might but that is up to you.
There is a lot of talk in the online dating space about in using Philippine dating agencies as an alternative to dating sites.
Dating agencies are suppose to align a western guy with a variety of philippine singles to find a good match.
They also ease any problems in language translation.
That is what they are meant to do anyway.
Could not be further from the truth.
The cost of using Philippines dating agencies is enormous as compared to a philippine online dating site.
With access to the wide range of online translation websites and smartphone apps, language is not the problem you might think it is.
From my experience, the stumbling blocks of different languages is fun.
Starting a new relationship needs differences.
Tagalog or the filipino language is one of them.
