Dating at a young age
Once the lady reaches 18 she may date anyone she wishes.
Dating can limit their social circle, require a high level of maturity, and increase the probability of sexual contact.
The partner to a Filipina needs to have charm, wit and intelligence.
This is assumed because you are smart enough to get to Philippines and charming enough to capture her heart so foreigners start with an advantage here.
All foreign men of all ages are considered handsome by ladies in Philippines. A single lady in Philippines is looking for a man who is financially stable so he can support her and any children.
This means providing food and a roof over their heads.
