Dating at a young age
Once the lady reaches 18 she may date anyone she wishes.Expect to get some raised eyebrows if you are 58 and your girlfriend is 18 but it is not uncommon in Philippines.
Dating can limit their social circle, require a high level of maturity, and increase the probability of sexual contact.
Thus a typical Philippine woman may look for a man aged 40 to 60.
The age of partner you are looking for will vary with your personality and culture. Thus we find the “right age gap” to be a number anywhere between 0 and 40 years difference. Yes, a Filipina can be too young to date a foreign man.
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.
