I went through the Filipino old fashion traditional courting ritual. Met my wife to be through her Aunt & Uncle, when she was only 18 yrs old and I, 33 at the time. When we finally got married i

It was a true Cinderella story when I met my wife.  Not sure how many of you know, but in the Malate jail, the drunk tank is located just across from the holding cell for "rescued sex-workers".  It wa

The way I met wifey was strange..I met a girl online living here...so one night she decided to come to my apartment, typical Filipina, she brought her friend, but told her to wait outside the gate in the street...so later when she told me her friend was waiting in the street, I got pissed that she would treat her friend that way and went outside and invited the girl in....found out she could speak English fluently and worked for a Fil-Am woman that was going back to the states and would need a job soon....I hired her as my assistant, more than a housekeeper as she paid all the bills, canvased things when I would want to buy stuff etc...stay at my apartment when I was gone etc..

She worked for me for a year, in the meantime, I was dating my ass off and traveling all over Leyte and Samar....finally on night I was in Kananga at a mountain resort with a bimbo...was getting tired of her babel...and said WTF are you doing here chasing bimbos when you have a great one watching your place....took the bimbo home, drove back, woke up the wife and told her she was fired....cause you cant date the help

We have been together happily ever since....

 

Wow! What appeared as a downgrade was an upgrade.  'Others' are fun.

 

Met mine through Cherry Blossoms.  My wife pulled my letter to another girl out of her dormitory trash and answered.

We had to use snail mail.  Morse code was only for the rich.

Um, how about options for guys who met their wives / sweethearts on Cam chat sites, in bikini bars, or maybe picked them up on Juana Osmeña, near Vacation Hotel, or maybe at the basketball court? You know, just using those as examples here. 

 

Those options are covered by the choices...

 

Online - at her place of work or through work

 

and

 

In person - at her place of work or through work

But, how does she feel about that fateful day? I guess she figures she was on the USS Minnow, eh? 

my guess is not much different.  12 years later she's still screaming obscenities and threatening.

i could contribute to that new thread as well.  one of my wife's dearly departed relatives used to tell me many stories of his experiences during the Japanese occupation.  his experiences will probably fly in the face of what most would expect, as for the most part it was one big wild party and that's how my wife ended up with some Japanese heritage :)

Didn't realize so many have gone native here....I will make a point to insert "joke lang" next time so you and James will know when it's time to laugh. But you probably don't understand self-deprecation either....lol.

Huh? People saw the joke in my post without smileys and shit like that. Me thinks someone needs a hug.

I met my missus 8 years ago when we were both working on a cruise ship, despite looking younger then me I later discovered she was 8 years older... With our first dates in Copenhagen, Wardnemunde, St Petersburg and Tallinn, that became our final contract on the cruise ships, and we lived happily ever after (well thats what I keep telling myself).
