As far as Philippine culture from experience dating back over 30 years with the Philippines while some elements of the experience you portray part of the local culture, they are plenty of decent women in the Philippines who do not behave that way ,and Expats who do not choose to be in or stay in such situations.

As far as whether you were impressed or not simply this is a public Forum and certainly not unexpected people would comment on your story as many have done. While your story interesting as are some soap operas since it is reality certainly I sympathize with what you have gone through. Again no offense meant and I apologize if any comments you found offensive.
Thank you for your comments and the apologies. May I offer you my hand of friendship over a few swift half's if ever you are in the Luzon area. I also apologise to you for being a stubborn old fart.

Regards

Done.....The prosecutor probably wont deliver her verdict for some time so I expect this blog will go quiet for some time. Obviously when something materialises, I will update here...

Mike1, it wasn't meant to provide useful information. This thread was P11's adventure in the Philippines as it revolved around his life.

Anything posted on social forums will generate comments that are good, bad and indifferent and that will include mud slinging, righteous indignation and superiority.

Your life in the Philippines has been a song and dance in comparison to P11's and I gather for most white men and women who have chosen to live on the islands.

I've seen the cunning and duplicate nature of Philippine women for the last 23 years on the US marriage-based forums. Would I trust one, never. That's me and I'm not about to force my opinion on someone else.

And yet I fearlessly predict that this thread will nonetheless lurch forward, zombie-like, upon some new, weird, yet retroactively predictable downturn in P11's circumstances in the Philippines. (I genuinely hope it will have nothing to do with COVID-19)

Keep living your life the way you are P11. While not everyone's cup of tea, you are living it and it's your adventure. Not everything you want, but you are making of it what you can. I'm sure it's going to go on for quite a while and so are your detractors. Your posts are warts and all experiences. Try share the good side of things occasionally so it doesn't look so bleak. Glad you are still hanging in there mate. Voorspoed!

Sending out the cavalry to search for our missing P11. Have you gone round the bend yet, luv, or are you hiding in plain sight?

Perhaps his connection is a bit dodgy?

P11 did say he would not post in this thread unless there was anything new to report.

‘Obviously when something materialises, I will update here.’

I suppose, like most of us, life is very quiet at the moment.

Yes, for most of us it is. I just was interested in knowing that he has not contracted the virus and was still healthy.

Me too. I am surprised we haven’t had members reporting they have tested positive, apart from Scot 47. Some have had symptoms, but apart from Scot no one on BE, AFAIK, has had COVID19 confirmed.
