Dating a two year younger guy
I’ve dated Filipinos before and was even in a long-term relationship with one!
It’s pretty annoying when people say that “if you can’t find a good Filipino then just look for a foreign man.” This is also stupid; there are plenty of amazing, loving and faithful Filipino men all over the world.
When I quit my job in the Middle East to start my backpacking journey, aside from the other reasons and lies I was telling myself and people around me about why I wanted to leave my corporate life, I actually left because I just wanted to have more time to understand myself, to love me and just to be with myself!
Unexpectedly, during a few days exploring Luang Prabang, Laos, I met Jonathan!
We both want to buy land to build our very own yoga resort in the Philippines.
In fact, Jon keeps asking me about how he can get a permanent resident’s visa in the Philippines.
So maybe it’s actually foreign men who need the visa, not the Filipinas!
I will be getting a Long-term visa to visit UK but I’m not interested in getting a British passport or citizenship as what others are assuming because we don’t have any plans to live in the UK, as long as my future children will have dual citizenship then that’s great for us!
Ok, so they have more ‘free countries’ than us, but it balances out, because when they pay, they pay big!
Also, if you travel in mostly Asian countries, having a Filipino passport has way more advantage than his, he has to pay more than me!
If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll meet a lot of travelers – mostly European, and being a backpacker you shouldn’t expect another backpacker to take you to an expensive restaurant – oh and he’s British btw.
After few months of just keeping in touch on facebook while I continued my solo backpacking, Jon and I decided to be officially together, and we’re now together for almost two years!
