Hi, my name is Darren, the creator of Finding Filipinas.
I run a number of other websites from a business sense, but this one was created as a passion of mine. I’ve personally lived this experience and I would like to help other guys who are interested in doing the same. But first, here’s a bit of my own story with meeting a Filipina.
I live in Australia and have a number of Filipino friends (both male and female). I get on famously with them. That got me interested in meeting Filipina women. As none of my female Filipina friends were single, I decided to go online and join a dating site that specialised in Filipino dating – Filipino Cupid. You will see me endorse this website from time to time, as it proved to be my gateway to successfully meeting the love of my life, Jeany.
At first I was just browsing the profiles on Cupid out of curiosity, but soon realised there were a lot of beautiful single women in the Philippines and my interest grew rapidly. In November of 2014 I connected with the gorgeous woman I am about to marry.
Up to this point I was a free trial member, which meant I couldn’t read any messages I was receiving, but when Jeany messaged me and I viewed her profile, I was so blown away by what I saw and read that I just had to get out my credit card and sign up as a paid member so I could message her.
We messaged for hours that night and agreed to talk on Skype the next time we were online. A few days went by before we managed to catch each other and Skype, and when we finally got a connection I was blown away a second time. Seeing her on cam was truly a vision. She was so beautiful, spoke great English and was really fun to chat to.
From then on we were addicted to talking on Skype for hours every night. My interest grew by the day until I came to a decision: I wanted to meet her in person.
I booked a flight to the Philippines, and just a few short weeks later I was there in the tropics spending time with this wonderful girl who was not only gorgeous, but seemed so fresh and full of life. The chemistry was electric and we got on famously. I was there for 2 weeks that first time, and when I arrived back in Australia I felt like I was hooked.
As I was predominantly making a living online it gave me time freedom. Jeany and I kept in touch constantly while I was back home. I organised some things back in Australia with the plan of returning to the Philippines for a longer stay so we could really get to know each other. In just over a month I was back in the Philippines and Jeany and I travelled around a bit to see some of this beautiful country together.
Three months later I returned to Australia again. By now we were engaged to be married, but I had some things to sort out in Australia first. I was back in Oz for 3 months and am now temporarily living in the Philippines during the lead up to our wedding.
As of this writing we are not yet married, but the wedding is happening next month. After that the plan is to apply for a Partner Visa for Jeany and her daughter so I can live with them in Australia. She truly is the love of my life and I feel so blessed to have met her.
Well, there you have it. That’s just a very brief snippet of my relationship with a Filipina so far. I will update this About Me page as things progress, and much more information about my experiences – as well as loads of tips and advice on finding and dating a Filipina – can be found on the site.
Update: Jeany and I are now happily married. The wedding was great and all went to plan. I have written a post on it here.
My aim with this site is to help other men find the love of their lives in the Philippines, or perhaps one of the other Southeast Asian countries. There are so many beautiful women in this part of the world, and many of them have a lot of love to give to the right man. So my advice is to get active on the Asian dating sites. If you are interested in meeting a Filipina, then I highly recommend Filipino Cupid.
Good luck and happy searching!
