    A good and healthy relationship consists of two people who respect each other’s beliefs, culture and attitude. It’s simply one of the most important things that keep the relationship going.

    When both of you are conversing, make sure to listen to her opinions and don’t make comments that would belittle her. It’s only normal that sometimes you won’t share the same insights, but it’s important to establish an equal respect to what they believe in even though it goes against yours.

  2. Respectful to others (especially to her family)

    Filipinos have several ways as to how they show respect to others, especially to their elders. First is their way of saying the “po” and “opo”. By saying either of these two in your sentences shows your respects to them through the way you speak.

    “Opo” could be used to a Yes answered question and “Po” is something that can be casually inserted in a sentence like “Kamusta po kayo?” which means “How are you?”

    Another way of showing respect to elders in the Filipino culture is by doing the “Mano”

    What is “Mano”?

    It’s a manner of taking the elder’s hand and bowing so your forehead touches the back of their hand. You usually do this to their parents, grand parents, and also to their aunts and uncles. When you’re about to do the Mano, don’t forget to say “Mano po”.

    Take note that there are other Filipino families who prefer their daughters to end up with someone of the same religion. Though there are some who still prefers their daughter to date a man with the same Christian beliefs, there are also some who lets their daughter date whoever they love.

    If ever you don’t share the same religion, it’s important to remember that respecting her and her family’s belief is super important.

  4. Committed to the relationship

    Once there’s love, there must also be committment.

    When a Filipino woman enters herself into a relationship, she’s committed and loyal to her partner. So make sure to extend the same courtesy to her by showering her not only with love but also with devotion, faith, building her trust, and of course show that she’s the only woman in your eyes.

    Show her that you’re in this for the long run.

    But if you’re only looking for friendships or simple flings, it’s better that you communicate this to her from the start so no misconceptions would take place that would most likely end up breaking her heart.

  5. Charming and has a sense of humor

    Everyone wants someone who can make them smile. Being charming and having a sense of humor is one of the many qualities a Filipino woman wants in a man. Who doesn’t want to date a man with a likable personality and witts up in their sleeves?

    Sharing jokes and smiling without being creepy makes anyone comfortable to be with you. But with jokes, make sure it’s not something that would insult her as a person or her nationality. You wouldn’t want your chances to crash and burn.

At first, you might feel that dating Filipino women would take some work compared to the other women that you’ve dated in the past but once you’ve won that woman’s heart, all those hard work and dedication would pay off. With you having an amazing woman at your side.
