I’m Brett and I’ve been searching for my own Asian wife for quite a while now.
Three years in fact.
I am the living proof that it can often take a lot longer to find an Asian wife than you might think…
So what else does it take to find a Filipino wife, and what do you need to know before you get started?
Losing All Your Money to a Romance Scam
First of all I’ll state that you need to wise up pretty damn quick if you’re to be successful in your search for a Filipino wife.
Most men start off their search by signing up to a Filipino dating site like Filipino Cupid or Filipino Kisses.
This is all well and good, because unless you chat to Filipinas you’re not gonna find a Filipino wife!
Yet so many men seem to lose their minds on dating sites. They think that since they’ve paid $20 – $30 a month to join the site that this guarantees that the site is 100% scammer free.
Of course it doesn’t!
The reality is that the more popular dating sites are overrun with new members joining every day. The majority of members don’t pay the site a cent to join, so it’s unreasonable to expect them to screen the members.
And if they did screen the members, scammers are usually brazen enough to use their own identity anyway. There’s not much law and order in countries like the Philippines, and your chances of getting money back from a romance scammer are effectively zero.
So my advice – don’t bother looking for a scam free dating site. There aren’t any. Instead, read up about romance scammers. And if you have doubts about a particular girl you’re chatting to, use our scam spotting tool to help you decide if she’s honest.
Money… You’ll Still Need Plenty of it!
Even if you don’t lose money in a romance scam, Asian long distance dating is still expensive.
To be honest, a dating site membership is usually the cheapest part of the process.
It can be expensive to travel to the Philippines to meet women. And since it’s so hard to get a visa for a woman to visit your country, it means you’ll have to travel to meet her.
About the biggest unknown is whether you’re going to find a Filipino wife on your first visit to the Philippines. You might get lucky. But you might not. The worst mistake you can make is to marry a girl who you’re not sure about. Trust me, it’s better in the long term for both of you if you return to your country, then have another go at finding a Filipino wife.
Time… Something Else in Short Supply
It takes a lot of time to find the right Filipino wife for you. My top tip here is to take as much time off your job and life that you can, and go live in the Philippines for at least 6 months.
In fact, this is the #1 way of finding an Asian bride. I myself am in the process of quitting my job and going to spend a couple of years in Asia. I’m taking a huge gamble here, but taking my time to find exactly the right woman is more important to me than anything else.
So if you can spare the time away, I highly recommend this course of action.
Thankfully the Philippines is a pretty cheap place to hang out for a year or two. Live outside the most popular areas, eat what the locals eat and you’ll see that a budget of $750 a month goes a long, long way in the Phillies.
So while I can highly recommend Asian wives, just bear in mind that the whole process of finding a wife from the Philippines is expensive, time consuming and stressful. Is it ultimately worth it? Of course!
