I just wish that the perception remains even until today. There are about 3M Filipinos in the US but very few are ambitious.

Very few Filipinos (numbers are neglible) in the US who do excel in Science and Technology, Academe, Politics, Entertainment and Sports.

I'll be moving to the US next month for a permanent job (I was handpicked to transfer to our US affiliate). I am actually contented with my career in Singapore, or I can set-up a business in Manila but I prefer to go to the US not because of career move but more on giving my kids better education.
With all due respect to your opinion, as previously inferred, in my 35 years of working with and living amongst Filipinos, I have found a hard working people with academic ambitions. Although I cannot truthfully state that all Filipinos (or their children) I've met have attended Ivy League schools, the fact is that most have had some level secondary education, or in some cases, vocational training.

Interestingly, I recently attended a gathering to celebrate the graduation of a pair of twin sisters who were half Filipino/half Anglo. They both graduated within 4 years from Stanford University.

That aside, we will most likely agree that Filipinos encompass a large segment of the nursing occupation; a noble and necessary line of work in any country.

As for your move to the USA, I wish you and your dependents the best of fortune.

Male/Female interests are MUTUAL THINGS.

Most Filipinos and Thais seem to be quite attracted to western men. So, therefore, men are attracted right back at them.

When you see, for example, Malaysian women. They aren't all that different in looks and appearance, and they also have a nice personality as well. But Malay women have almost zero interest in western men....so therefore men won't look for women there.

Indonesian women. Plenty of mutual interest between western men and Indonesian women. What's more interesting to me is this Indonesian females like western males...but Malaysian females do not seem to like western males. I've always found that interesting...how can Malaysia be in the middle of Phils, Indonesia, Thailand...but be some 'no go, not interested' country when it comes to local women being interested in western guys.

This and the whole stupid fetish thing are all myths created by people that are racist or butthurt about white men dating/marrying outside of their race. Quite often you'll hear these bs myths being purported by white women. Which is always amusing to me. I guess they're scared of having to compete with Asian women in the dating/marriage pool or something?

The correct statement is, a very very small percentage of western men try to take advantage of women from these nations. If American men were so bad, the women in the Philippines would be splitting on them the second they got off of the plane. Which isn't the case of course.

How is anyone taking advantage of someone, the man or the woman, if they've been happily married 25 years. Filipino-Americans are one of the largest ethnic groups in the U.S. yeah I'm sure that happened because western men are bad.

I really like Filipinas and southeast Asian women for sure and I think most American men do as well. However, I do know many men that are not attracted to Asian women. I guess just depends of the person....hard to explain attraction, we like what we like.


I also like Chinese, Mongolian, Thai, and Korean (less though) women.

I grew up with a lot Filipinos and still have some very good, close friends who are Filipino. They are on the whole some of the nicest, kindest, warmest people by nationality that I’ve met (along with Thais and Ethiopians). I have a very positive opinion of their men and their women.

I think most Americans generally hold a positive view of Filipinos.

Eww. White weeabos are creepy Asiaphiles. They tend to be nerdy beta males who seem to can't get a decent white female here in the US.
