I Found A Wonderful Filipina Woman
I met Mira on Filipina Cupid 5 1/2 years ago.
I was struck by her physical beauty (naturally) and started to chat her up. I was recovering from a broken relationship, same as her. I was 57, she was 41 when we met, (a little bit of a spread in age but it seemed acceptable to her).
We both have families, so proceeded slowly, with caution. We found a lot in common - which is strange, I am from Canada, never having been off the continent, not really too adventurous - I guess when life goes south, you start to look at other options.
I didn't talk to my family about our relationship for about 6 months. I sent gifts to her - over time, we kept growing closer; there was a point that it changed from a friendship to a romantic relationship - as much as that is possible when half a world apart.
About 16 months after first meeting, I visited her in Manila - stayed for 2 1/2 weeks. We spent lots of time together, I met some of her family, then headed home, sadder but encouraged - she was more than I dreamed possible.
Don't get me wrong - she is a woman of varying shades of temper, with a passionate nature, loves to laugh, loves to serve, loves to be taken care of and pampered....And so we kept at it for 3 years - mostly on Yahoo and Skype - then I went back.
Next step is to bring her here to Canada to meet my family - and then - it looks like marriage is in the works. So I would say it is successful.
One word to the wise - never take anything for granted! Always find out that what is said is understood correctly - save more than a few arguments! Good luck:)
