In terms of personality/culture...If one was looking for a wife in either country (not that I am), or a serious relationship, what would you say the main differences between the two are, aside from the obvious, Philippines being Catholic vs Buddhist.etc. I assume Filipino women, even many from villages, can speak at least basic English whereas most Thais can barely speak a few words. Would you say Filipinos and Filipino women in general are more westernised? Both still seem very family orientated etc, but I wonder if Thai women are more typically 'Asian' with stereotypes about being materialistic.etc.

Western women are not any less materialistic than Asian women. That is why you have plenty of ugly rich guys in America who are married to women who are out of their league in the looks department.

Look at Jay-Z and Beyonce for example or Joe Pesci and Angie Everhart or Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky.

I doubt these women married these men because they thought they looked like Abercrombie & Fitch catalog male models.

Well Beyonce is so rich herself why would she marry for money? Its more a status thing I think, like most celeb marriages.

But you're right...at least a lot of Thai girls, even if they seem materialistic, do it to support their families.

Pattaya girls or Angeles city girls? Try dating in Thailand or Philippines - LifeIn.Asia | LifeIn.Asia

I'm not into the P4P culture, but I found his generalised observations interesting.

How true would you say this is?

It seems you wanted to talk about Thai Sluts and Filipina Sluts.

I know people are trying to drag that Thailand and Philippines is a sexual tourism location.

If you've been in the Philippines you hardly see prostitutes, if you go Ermita Manila or elsewhere where there is cheap clubbing, Angeles City Pampanga then you'll just see them.
lol funny how people talk about "filipina' or 'Thai' ladies in general if only few are doing this thing to generalized the whole country.

But prostitution from Thai even outside Thailand is really bad. I work overseas here in the Middle East and I usually encounter them almost everyday because we usually took their passport copies even as visitor & some of them I actually talk to as I am curious of why they choose that job. I work in hotel industry, but I don't generalized all Thai ladies cause I've seen them work in other fields which is decent. I know Thai sluts do not generally represents Thai ladies.

We usually mistaken as Thai due to some of us looks like them.

What is up with your obsession with the Philippines ThePostman? You keep saying there are alot of filipinos in here that only want to talk about the philippines yet you keep making threads and posting and trying to compare countries with it so that arguments can happen.

Just leave the country alone already.
