So, I've been reading this forum for some time, and had gotten quite excited about possibly settling there. Until, I spoke to another woman on the forum. Now, the forum is absolutely dripping with glowing testimonials from males about how perfect the country is for them and I realize that it probably is heaven if you are an older gentleman looking for a shiny new Filipino wife. But, what about the rest of us who are not on the make? What is the expat life for we females who are not shopping for a man, would we find the Philippines to be just as welcoming, accommodating and wonderful to move to?
