Midas and I have some similar views on this.
Here goes the Q & A…

Are Filipino guys more traditional? If so, does that mean their values are more intact than that of foreigners?

This question is unfortunately too vague for me to answer.

Is the stereotype true that Westerners have a less of a sense of spirituality?

Being spiritual is a very personal thing. I do not believe that filipino men are more spiritual than other races.

What about a foreigner’s view of commitment in a relationship?

A person who wants a relationship to work is going to do the best he/she can to make it work, be he from Canada, Mongolia or any where else in the world.

How are they as mates- are they jealous, possessive?

Each person has his own personality. There is a lot of stereotyping about Asians being possessive and jealous. I am not. My husband, a european, is not a jealous type, thank goodness!
Is it true that normally a stronger woman is better of with a foreigner?
No, a woman (or everyone for that matter) should get into a relationship with someone she loves, be he of the same race or from another country.

🙂 I could not possibly generalize filipino men and western men. All relationships will boil down to 2 people raised by two different families in different environments, cultures and traditions (whether of the same race or not) and they will have to go through struggles and joys together. If by any chance, their love is sturdy enough through the struggles, then it doesn’t matter whether one is in an inter-racial marriage or not.

  1. Hey Al, thank you for doing the meme.

    You’re right about differences.

    A nod to what Iskoo says.

  2. Hi AL! I don’t normally do tags but I will oblige…email you when it’s done 😉

  3. Sidney – Marriage is difficult anyway without compromise.

    Iskoo – Do you mean that women adapt much better? LOL

    Reyna – 🙂 Thanks amiga!

  4. Hola mi amiga,

    Over the weekend na lang po, busy ang lola, daming assignment sa opis, thank you!

  5. good answers. for men its diff to diffirentiate, but for women i think there is a lot diff bet asian and western, that is why very few western ladies married asian men.

  6. I think a marriage between two races or cultures is a bit more difficult. You need to adapt much more than if you marry the girl next door.
