As a Filipino lady, you ought to know what foreign men need and at the same time balance it out with your authentic self without sacrificing your true values.

What foreign men expect from their Filipino women could differ, but there are certain traits that are of general consensus to men. The following points could prove insightful:


People say that the way you dress is how you will be addressed. Foreign men would always look out for the way you look especially in public. If you are looking for a long term relationship, wear clothes that would command respect and still be attractive. If need be, donate those clothes that are not appropriate anymore to your goal. Presentation could also entail your charisma, gait, poise, carriage, manners and body posture. Look out for a role model that you admire, claim your femininity and be the best you can be not only for the man of your dreams but for yourself primarily.


Never emasculate your man. Nagging, shouting and humiliating don’t work. Make him feel like he is the man.
