Advice for a shy guy in Cebu City?


Recommended Posts

I have a friend who is in Cebu City right now.  He is American, 29 years old, and is visiting his Filipina girlfriend.  Problem is she is acting cold and he thinks maybe she's not that into him.  He is never married and no kids, has a stable job.  What advice would you give him if his current relationship implodes?  He is there for two weeks.  He's shy so it's hard for him to initiate contact with new girls, and I am a little leery of sending him to Filipinakisses or like sites because there are so many scammers.

 

Any advice is welcome!

I used to try that approach . Then i got tired of being by myself .  If you want to make something happen in just about anything in life you have to be prepared to make it happen.

My advice would be to forget "trying" to make a quick hookup.  Just go somewhere and have fun.  Go to Moalboal and try snorkeling or scuba diving.  Go to Oslob and see the whales.  Take a tour around

Found out several decades ago that a bottle or two of Red Horse erases all traces of shyness.

Dave, as you know, the Philippines is not for the "shy" or introverted type of guy. Unless he learns to be more outgoing, he is going to find it very difficult to meet a girl. You should have tried to go with him, perhaps? 

 

Maybe someone here can meet up with him, to give him a bit of insight.

Being a shy guy is no problems for the usual philippino girl. So tell him just to meet with his girlfriend, go out for a dinner and such - no intimacy is needed.
If they both feel that they like each other everything is fine. 

 

Remember most of the girls here are very conservative and prefer a reliable guy, not a macho or flirty type of guy.
So his shyness is in fact a big plus for his girlfriend !

Ah the ole 'courage in a bottle', nothing wrong with that if you don't get too drunk.

 

Two weeks doesn't sound like enough time unless he gets on it in a hurry. I think meeting girls through friends is the easiest way, you know, go out in a group....that way there's no pressure to hook up

How did they meet up in first place if he already call her a gf?

Shy doesn't work here, you need the bare minimum of courage, they are even more shy than he thinks he is. However, I was in a similar boat, honestly it took me about 3 years living here full time to really get the hang of this place (still had tons of fun). I suggest next time come to Angeles City, get a hotel on fields, learn to drink a little and practice out there. (Some would disagree). Eventually he will catch on and conquer online and then the malls and then get suckered in to marriage :).

Witnessed plenty guys rejected, her own friend "you don't go with him I will" and plenty of those getting the rejects are like oh my god how did he get her.

 

Plenty others have cousin even sister no problem, he is there on the ground not just still alive but looking fit.

 

He is just in a pinch focusing in one with limited time.

Best advice I think is using it as a vacation and enjoy his time. He should get rid of the girl. Filipinas are very joyful, I am grumpy myself, lol.

Hi Dave, if things do not work out with the lady he is coming to meet, then tell him to post on here saying he is your friend and then meet up with other members, surely the expats ladies will have friends who might want to go out with him. Also he should go to places where expats hang out, I am sure others on here can post some places, my meeting up with expat days are pretty much over except for one on one, or couples, so I would not know where to recommend.
