I have been blogging for almost three years now and throughout these years, I have met a lot of people online and most of these are Filipina bloggers in the US or residing from other countries. Most of them got married to foreign nationals and has blogs as their way to communicate with family and friends here in the Philippines. Some of them use their blog to earn money like me.
Speaking of Filipinas married to foreign nationals, I have heard countless love stories on how they met their love of their life. Most of them started as pen pals, chat mates and met through friends who have been married earlier to foreign nationals too. While some of them became members of dating communities like those who allow foreigners the opportunity on meeting Asians online.
Cross-cultural marriages are a trend nowadays especially westerners marrying Asian women. I have seen a lot of white people here in our city and carrying their half-Filipino and half-American (or whatever nationality is the husband) children walking with their Filipina wives/mom.
As for me, I always thought of marrying a foreigner when I was younger but somehow it didn’t become my cup of tea. I married a Filipino and somehow (after all what we have gone through) I didn’t regret my decision. But guess what, my daughter who is still 10 years old has plans to marry an American “blonde” guy with blue eyes!! She is young but yet so descriptive about her taste already!! Hehehe…
