“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, true or not, this simple article might be the one you are looking for. According to my research and testimonies of my Filipino friends who have interracial relationship with white women/female, I learned something from them.
In the Philippines, it’s very common to see white men with a Filipina(Filipino female) partner but we rarely see a Filipino(male) and a white woman in public. We often see this as a racial discrimination among Filipino men specially when they go abroad because we think caucasians don’t like us but in reality isn’t true.
What they liked from us
Little did we know, some white females are attracted to our roasted brown color, average looking body, brown eyes, black hair, and other “malay” and “indon” attributes. Not only that, they like our overall attitude because most of us are God-fearing man and very respectful towards females and elders (we often don’t call name of a person directly, instead, we prefer to call “ate” or “kuya” with the words of respect such as “po” or “opo”). We are truly smart, sweet, funny, resilient and compassionate, qualities that are lacking with most educated white men and developed asian neighbors. Lastly, the determining factor whether they will like you or not is your confidence and pesonality in communicating with them.
What we liked about white women/female
We are attracted with their pale skin, long nose, blonde or brunette hair, different eye colors, and height. Watching Hollywood or foreign movies maybe affected our preference.
There is a saying that “you are a lucky guy” or “you hit a jackpot” when you marry a white female. It is true and unique, most Filipino will say that and promise to treat their foreigner wife as their queen if it will happen. It’s like an honor for them to have a mixed offspring.
One thing for sure in public places, people will always look at the couple because it is unusual in most part of the Philippines. Filipino women or Pinays will always comment specially when an average looking guy has a beautiful white woman by his side, it is a sign jealousy and discomfort to some.
Word of Advice
Not all Filipino male and White female are perfect. Some Filipinos have bad attitudes like womanizing and violence and some Caucasian females also have bad characters, so if you are into matchmaking watch these things.
