Dili na na tinoud nga ija-ija, aho-aho oi. Based on my experience when attending social gatherings, ang mga bisaya ang number 1 nga ma abi-abihon. Unlike sa mga tagalog nga hilig kaayo sila mag grupo. Well, naa man pud na sa bisaya pero we always try to interact with others.

What amazes me is the people here gloat about how proud they are to be a native from here? but, they marry outside their race to get away from the place? ::)
So they are not that proud after all?

Most marry for this one $$$$$ and are hoping for greener pastures from the other side of the fence with their new husband.

Most women who get married here to foreigners have a high rate of divorce after they have a new country citizenship and remarry again in the same country.

Allot of foreigner men come up to me and we laugh together as they tell me how unfaithful their being to their Philippine wives here.

The reason for it is because they are having a boring time here compared to the fast paced life back home.
The Philippine wife is fine with it for me "No Way"!
The foreign husband gets here and he pays for everyone in her family and it is not practiced in our place to get married and be the bread winner for Uncle Joe, Aunt sue, cousin Billy Bob, and the family pet pig.

I am telling you Philippine ladies if you want to lose your foreigner man just keep on washing his pocket book out supporting people he barely knows in your family.
It upsets them but they are too nice to say anything to you about it. So if your happy using a foreigner husband as an ATM machine then I guess it makes sense why you ladies allow these guys to be unfaithful towards you because you hold the legal banking card!

I also notice the Philippine woman married to a Westerner or other white foreigner man here is also changing her style of dress from conservative to non conservative?
She wears more richer threads then a Philippine woman married to her own native race.

I will not change for anyone I do not care what the style of the country is I will respect but not change it or myself
I would never marry to change my status in fact poor men have character and are rich in heart and rich men have everything and they never seem content!  >:( JUST BE YOURSELF AND ACCEPT YOU FOR :)  HOW YOU REALLY ARE DO NOT DO IT FOR OTHERS DO IT FOR YOURSELF PEOPLE!)

Hello! It seems you are frustrated...I might agree with some of your ideas...but I have to remind you...
not all people are the same. As what you've typed... poor and rich men, I think this applies also to ladies
mostly on the other way. It's always what the demand is...You need me...I need you...and then the business is on.

It is good everyone has their own opinion.
Mine is also that generalizations are dangerous to me.
I know of same issues in pretty much all cultures. I have lived, married and divorced a young lady from NZ when i was young. She married me for her trophy from canada, but i only learned after married and returning to NZ.
I have lived long time in Asia, in many different countries, and Europe.
I am still young, and still believe in the "utopian ideal" of love.
If i lose that belief, i will have to settle for some balance.
In taking risk, u can get hurt.
But it is only fair to always say, a man looking for love, same as a woman looking for love, seek a partner who betters their lives.
Money might be important to some. Fidelity to others.
But love has no price, cheating is never love. Whatever race two people are from, they are always first a man and a woman, wether from Canada, Philippines, or Antarctica.
Nice to see all the replies, thought i would share mine too, since i am new to the boards.

Shhh! ayaw saba Bella kay basin pang dakpon ni sila. Bahala na kung nag overstay basta ming kita ug revenue ang Bohol.

There is only one reason why they are overstaying and that is because they love the place and they are well accepted, well respected. Most of these people are pensioners. If they stay in thier home country, they are poor, but if they stay in the Philippines, they are well respected and their pension have more buying power, compared to staying in thier home country. They are smart. I believe they are doing business for the sake of self sufficiency or for hobby. But I don't believe they are here for big time profits.

They tried to escape the pressures of living by investing thier time in Bohol.

However, these are with exceptions to Chinese people because generally, they are opportunists and doing things for big time profits and this profits will be hoarded back to China.

I am not talking about Fil-Chinese, which I have high respect like the Ongs, Uys and Lims. They are more than Filipinos and part of our economic progress.

What I am talking about are the new batches of Chinese (new comers). They are just profiting from us and enjoying our cheap labor. Some are even engaged in manufacturing illegal drugs in Manila.

ngek!

I know a lot Macky, no prob with that at all. Basta di lang mang exploit sa mga gagmay'ng bata! I know wa na sa Bohol pero naa na sa ubang resort islands, like Palawan and where else, nga daghang mga foreigners nga mga dagko ug tijan nga nag kuringking ug mga batan-on kaajo nga baje  nga minors pa, its very wrong.

Feel like i have to say something regarding this topic  yes i am married to a foreigner, i have been asked by my co-worker many times before why Pinays married foreigner and vise versa my answer is some foreigner women are high maintainance and out of control sometimes i have a few friends that are not pinays and every Fridays they hang out at the Bar and drinks. While faithful and obedient pinays every Fridays after works goes home kiss her hubby and fix dinner  can every woman do that? not at all. I have been married for 15yrs now and we love to hang out together , camping and fishing. I am married to a foreigner in good intentions i am now  a citizen  & holding a foreign passport and earned money and save for my retirement but My Philosophy and way of Life is always BOHOLANA forever my Love. Helping your family is always Pinays or pinoys tradition and nobody can take or tell me what should i do with my life or money.Sorry but i am so disgust with this OP i hope i did not step somebodies toes.
Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.

          HOPE FOR EACH DAY!

I completely understand your point of view, Ate Belle.

And I hold similar views concerning people who come to the Philippines to exploit the people in that way.

Ensakto ka kaayo Bay.

Whatever human society you came from; white, black ,yellow and brown race.We are just the same. They marry a filipina to find a better place in the sun and the filipina marry an expat thinking she has a richer husband. Thats "demand and supply" vice versa. Stop thinking white is better than black (see Obama now), maybe someday brown or yellow is the superpower. Remember the world evolves and so with technology.

For sure the next superpower region will be Asia.  That's why it's a good idea for the puti og itlog to sell all he has and move here right now (or ideally a few years ago).  But don't tell anyone about it, I prefer Bohol to be majority Filipino :)

hahahah Okay, let's not tell anyone about this because I prefer Bohol to have no condescending people from outer space.  You seem to be grounded, ben, so you can be an honorary Pinoy.  If you wish to. 

I can't wait for the day to come home in Bohol. My husband would blend well there too because he is very nice guy and respectful to other people's culture.

I have noticed that there are several NGO groups who would beg to differ when it comes to looking at foreign tourist as the reasons for how some woman and children are being treated horriblly here.

I personally get annoyed when I see foreigner men with younger women here even younger then 18 years of age. Pastilan!

I also have noticed with new beer and drinking establishments there are students drinking under aged in groups sometimes five men and one girl at a table with stacks of red horse bottles sitting in fron of all thm from dinner time up to midnight closing time.

It is not just puti who is hanging out and drinking at drinking establishments. So what if someone drinks beer just so long as they do it moderatly and do not hurt others or kill another person do to a drunkard's irresponsibility.

I have always asked myself this question why is it you do not see white women marrying Filipino man how the men Marry Filipina?

I ran into four mixxed couples the other day four Amrican men and four Filipina women all seemed happily getting along to me. At the time the men were at the windows exchanging currency for their few days adventure in Bohol.
