Congratulations RFulmer least you tell the truth the way it is, I just come back from Cebu and Surigao city my 11th trip there, most foreigners i meet there not happy, they look at you, then turn their heads the other way, the ones who seem unhappy married with kids they make no effort to talk with you even after saying hello, the only reason i go with my wife I dont trust her family they try and take advantage of her mainly where money is concerned, also in the past a number who have talked with are escaping their own countries not paying money for kids from previous relationships, or have criminal convictions in their own countries.

While I was there my wife uncle who is very well off gets requests every day from extended family for money, hid answer is no no no

I enjoy living in Australia, why would i want to live in the Phills for.

I do not regret my decision to leave. If I had to return full time to SEA (I visit often) I would choose nearly any other country in the region over the Philippines. 

 

 

 

 

Those who bring enough to a relationship one can have all three.

I have no regrets about living in Cebu.

 

I adore living here.

 

I feel sorry for those people who are here and can't stand it, but then they'd probably be unhappy anywhere.

 

As far as those that want to be here:

Some of us who have lived here a while have found the biggest perks are not the locals so if I'm not excited to meet another foreigner that doesn't mean I'm unhappy.  If you come here short time you may feel a need to latch on to other foreigners but that wears off after a while and a natural distrust can develop.  Part of the problem is the problem guys you mentioned.. 

 

a number who have talked with are escaping their own countries not paying money for kids from previous relationships, or have criminal convictions in their own countries.
and these guys are looking at other foreigners as a source of income to keep from having to go back.

thanks

 

 

 

.. If you decide to be a family guy but she tells you to go out more then that is a red flag, that is what happened to me, I had good intentions, in the end I ended up a drugged out party animal alco and penniless haha but it sure was fun.

 

I should have written that part better, just to clarify I did not take drugs like shabu there but mainly prescription drugs including painkillers, sleeping pills some cialis, as I had turned to alcohol and was drinking every day towards the end of my last trip. I did smoke a bit of weed as well and even started smoking ciggies again. that is what happens when your intentions to settle down are shattered so you turn to be a bar hopper from Makati to Palawan to Bohol to Boracay and beyond, still fun, no regrets but not what i was planning.

that is not always a true statement ... I have fun here and I also have different fun in the usa...  Last trip ... went from Arizona to Seattle by car saw new stuff in Vegas... Hearst castle  Cambria by the sea all by car something very hard to do here .... drove my car on empty freeways over 140 mph not possible here either so each place has its jewels and each has its nightmares

I don't see how this applies though.  Luke was referring to people that can't stand it here which is not your case.  And while his statement probably isn't 100% accurate it's probably quite high.

Sorry for the confusion.

 

I was referring to those unhappy people who live here, not ALL the foreigners who live here.  I certainly wouldn't presume to speak for everyone!   :morn:

Doing that depends on the individual person, it does not mean all people will follow that path.

I had a period of discontent about 8 years ago, then I realized it was because I was sitting on my ass doing nothing, unfortunately,

I now seldom have time to sit on my ass! My life here is like Robinson Crusoe.

I keep reading at people not being happy. I suffer from PTSD and depression, that is likely from the gunshot wound to the right arm  which is rapidly deteriorating as I age. So I cannot do the things I like to do.

 

I also do not sleep well, which can lead to some bad days. Add the acid reflux to that.

 

I have degenerative disc disease which makes it hard to move around sometimes and an arthritic hip,  I used to walk allot, now someday getting out of a chair takes all I have.

 

The viagra does not always work well, I think that is due to the blood pressure medication.

 

 

 

So somedays if I seem a little unhappy or grumpy,   I am.

Quite right.  Some people are just born to roam and some just need a change periodically.  Saying someone left the RP because they couldn't hack might be true for some but certainly not all.  That would imply they left their home country originally because they couldn't hack it there.
