When we went public about our relationship and especially when got engaged we got a lot of attention. Most were genuinely happy about us being together although Jacob got lots of joke about me being a ” mail order bride” and people I know congratulating me like I won the freaking lottery.
We Pinoys are one of the nicest people you’ve ever met and we are very accommodating although we have this mentality that whenever we see a girl dating or married to a white dude that means ” kumikitang kabuhayan” , people would think, he’s gonna support his chick, bring her to “Merica”( that’s how Jacob say it) get her a green card and she’ll be rich.. Lame…. you know nothing Jon Snow. I honestly got lil piss whenever someone out of the blue would make a comment or message me about me and Fiance and tells me that I am doing the right thing and being smart , he ( Jacob) will make me rich! wtf…
When I was younger, I don’t really like foreigners. I even told my self that I will never date one, but things changed haha I guess when you got older and experienced some really bad things, it makes you change your perspectives. When I got my heart broken by some pinoy guy I told my self, I am no longer dating my own kind and that’s how I started entertaining the other specie hahaha.
We all know and we cannot deny the fact that some girls would apparently do that a but these are the Pro’s like those hanging out in Greenbelt and some high end bars lol. Well they are hookers so what do you expect hahaha.
Jacob and I never expected that we will end up being together. We started with friendly talks and I had no high hopes of anything, I was just enjoying what we have. If you are following my Blog, I wrote about how we started ( Swipe, Swipe Matched!). So it was not like I planned on luring him so he’d end up falling inlove with me and the rest is history.
Foreign guys who are married to Filipinas might be from a better country who earns Dollars, Euros or whatever currency that is but that doesn’t mean that they have a fat bank account and you can just marry them, be happy and live like a lord!. They are also like us! though some are ridiculously white (I always make fun of them especially my Fiance’s white arse), they work hard, so it’s not like when you get marry life will be a fairy tale. Although I must say that it will make a difference, given that you’ll have the opportunity to be in Merica and have a better life but it’s more than that.
Any relationship would only work if you have the dedication and the purest intentions. Also, it will not be easy to give up what you have, family friends and all the things you used to do to be with the person you love. Imagine how hard it will be to be in a foreign country, without your family, friends and starting a new life . The point is, sometimes you find what you’ve been missing all your life 8,406 miles away and you are willing to do whatever it takes to be with that person.
