My Filipina online dating story of success does not come without some bumps along the way. I have to say I am happier than I have ever been with my Filipino wife Abby and expect it to last a lifetime.
Of course when I started the online dating experiment I used local dating sites in the US. Every body knows some of these sites. My problem with using these sites was I never got a response to anyone I tried to contact. Maybe my standards were too high I really do not know but it obviously did not work out.
One day as I was looking through the site I was on there was the ads you see on the side bar for some Asian dating sites. Then I remembered a time when I visited my brother in the military and met one of his friends that was married to a Filipina. His friend told me his wife was the best woman in the world and I would be surprised at the difference between the Filipino woman and western women.
I had always been attracted to Asian women so I figured I would give it a try and signed up to one of the larger sites to give it the old college try.
One thing that was disturbing about the site I signed up to was the first message I received from the site said to beware of the scammers and spammers on their site. Over 90% of the women here fall into the scammer or spammer category. Disturbing huh. Well I kept this in mind as I went through my online dating experience and I think I am actually one of the lucky few who found the woman I would marry without getting scammed to bad.
Yes I got scammed before I found my wife. The reason I still consider myself lucky is it only cost me around $ 1000 USD before I dropped the scammer. In reality a lot of men who get scammed get taken for much more before they finally cut these women off. Its not really that these men are not smart guys but more so that the scammers are that good. These scammers have been doing this for a long time and are very proficient at what they do.
The best way I have found to avoid these scammers with the main stream sites is
1. Do Not fall in love online. This will make you a lot more succeseptable and the scammers depend on this.
2. Make sure you see them in a webcam and,
3. Never stop looking through the thousands of profiles. If you find a girl your are chatting with having more than 1 profile with different names. She is a scammer. Good luck
