When a girl wants to bring her friend along on a date, it’s a form of bragging: Having that friend along will make it way easier to seal the deal with your girl, because like all girls, Filipinas’ opinions are in part dictated by their social group.
Make a good impression on the friend, you make an even impression on your girl.
As you’d expect from a second-world country, the Philippines lacks many of the labor protections that Americans take for granted.
When it comes to girls you date who have jobs (particularly teenage girls), most of them are working twelve hours a day, six days a week.
Not only does this indicate that she has a low resilience for pain and struggle, it’s only a matter of time before she starts hitting you up for money.
Honest Filipinas deal with their struggles with dignity and are too proud to ask for handouts from foreigners; I once tried to give my current girlfriend money for a taxi and she flatly refused.
In a country where English is so widely used and learning it is mandatory, what does that say about girls who can barely write in it? I made the mistake of trying to date one girl who could only send illiterate one-syllable word texts, and most of our “date” consisted of me pantomiming with my arms hoping and praying something would penetrate her thick skull.
