Filipino women: fire and water in one. Characteristics, mentality and culture
The Filipino woman, what is she like? The first thing that catches the eye is her figure. A plump Filipino woman who doesn't take care of herself is a nonsense. They are usually slim, graceful and not tall. They have slightly swarthy skin, even suntan, dark hair and burning hazel eyes. It is interesting that the Filipino woman can be easily distinguished in the crowd. However, she has no distinctive race features like Chinese, Spanish or Russian women have. The beauty of the Filipino woman fascinates, she is always unusual, lovely and exotic. You will hardly meet a plain Filipino woman. Their appearance formed by centuries. They have Spanish blood, something from Chinese, some African traits and some traits of the European women. Racial amalgamation did its part: you will not find such a variety of women of different appearance within the same nationality anywhere except in the Philippines. When you first see the Filipino woman, you may confuse her for a Spanish or Chinese, but on a closer view, you will understand who is before you. There is something mysterious and attractive in them.
Family and Religion
Filipino women are very dedicated to their families, which are usually very big in this country. Having less than 3 to 4 children is considered anomalous. It may seem weird, but women who gave birth to four or five children manage to retain excellent figures. Girls and women usually live with their families until they get married. Even if a woman is over thirty and she is a completely established and well-fixed person able to rent a room or a house, she usually prefers to stay with her parents and numerous relatives. Filipino women have respect to elders in blood; they never make tart remarks about elder people even if these people are strangers to them. They are well-intentioned, smiling and ready to help you any moment.
Filipinos have very firm relations between relatives. If in Europe and America we often do not know our cousins, ankles and ants, the situation here is quite different. All once and twice removed relatives, numerous nephews, cousins, grandmothers and grandfathers maintain usually quite close relations. Such closeness between relatives may be a disadvantage. It sometimes happens when a Filipino girl gets married, her husband supports not only his wife and children but also her parents and sisters. On the other hand, he can count on their help in a difficult situation.
Unlike in Europe and America, cases when a girl dates a man secretly from her parents are very rare in the Philippines. As soon as an admirer appears in the girl's life, she acquaints him with her family. Otherwise, the family will not want this man to be their daughter's partner for life. If he didn't wish to get acquainted with the family, he can hardly be a dignified person with serious intentions.
Philippine women are very religious. Usually they belong to Catholics or Orthodoxs. Their belief is not official or showy. Going to church on weekends is a norm for them rather than a hard duty.
Filipino women usually go to church with their parents of friends. If a girl marries a man of another belief, she can easily take his belief. This is not because of their lightheadedness, the Filipino woman is ensured she must obey her husband and always follow him whatever may happen.
What is amazing, the Filipino bride combines obedience with a striking pragmatism and cunningness. If there is something she doesn't like, she will not say it directly making a quarrel. She will behave to obtain what she needs or likes keeping you ensured she have followed your words and advice.
Filipino Culture in Everyday Life
Filipino ladies are obedient and unpredictable. On the one hand, the man is lord for them whom they strictly obey. At the same time, they are very cunning and know how to get what they want. They are perfectly able to conceal their feelings and intentions, they can test partner for a long time before they open their heart to him. The man is officially the head of the family, but actual power can be in the hands of the woman who knows perfectly what she wants and how to achieve it. She will use all the methods to achieve it; however, it will seem like the man has the last word. Many people are ensured that the Filipino woman thinks one move ahead. It is especially demonstrated in her relationship with people. She can be pleasing and smiling, but she has hidden benefit of such behavior. However, you may not worry that she will do harm to you to have this benefit. She will most probably try to find this benefit in everything. Despite their conservatism, more and more Filipino women choose foreigners as husbands. It can be partially explained by the fact that European and American men are more attractive than Filipino men and probably more generous. However, the fact remains that it is easier for a foreigner to win the heart of the Filipino woman than for her fellow country man.
Filipino girls have very serious attitude to relationship. They will do their best to strengthen marriage, and if the marriage is at risk, they will try to preserve it to the end. They never prefer career to children. They will not postpone having a child from year to year giving arguments that pregnancy, delivery and breastfeeding may spoil their figures. Contrariwise, they envision their mission in giving birth to children and living family life. Family support is usually man's issue. If there is such an opportunity, the Filipino woman will gladly leave her job to dedicate herself to family. They love children very much and are ready to spend most of their time taking care of their children and upbringing them.
When it comes to housekeeping, the Filipino woman is a perfect wife. She is very hard-working. House cleaning is more the everyday necessity than a hard duty, she finds its charm in it. In other words, it's a pleasure for her to do housework. The same is true for cooking. They are good cookers. Most often they cook oriental or Asian dishes, but if the husband wishes, they can learn to cook his favorite meals. As it has already been said, Filipino women are family oriented. Therefore, all husband's wishes are taken into account.
Bedroom duties are not actually duties for them. Filipino women love sex and all its manifestations very much. You will feel yourself like a king appeased by a hetaera ready to perform your every wish. Filipino women are very passionate, combustible and always ready for love. They don't make excuses for headache and fatigue, they believe love is able to heal everything. However, Filipino women are very conservative; therefore, you shouldn't expect they be very inventive and exotic in bed. However, if you propose to try something new, they will gladly agree to such an experiment. With all their passion and love for sex, they are very faithful and do not look at other men when married.
A particular feature of the Filipino women is that they love to sleep. They sleep much more than European or American women. However, they wake up very fast. You will not need to wait for an hour till she turns from sleepy into cheerful and smiling. They become wakeful in a moment. Once she opened her eyes, she is ready for actions: cleaning, cooking or love. Filipino women are full of zest. They seldom cry, feel down, or fall into depression. Contrariwise, they are ready to enjoy every trifle. No matter whether she is ill, pregnant or tired, she will be smiling and enjoying life, communicating her optimism and zest for life to you.
