Dating but not ready for a relationship
is a Foreigner/Filipina couple who are both the same age.
It does happen, but here it is the exception, not the general rule.
There’s a reason I took the time to show the difference between Western and Philippine culture regarding this issue. I can give a bit more lenience to college age girls who fall for their older, mentoring professor who is maybe 20 years their senior.
And it is this; what applies and occurs in the West is NOT what applies and occurs here in the Philippines. In the USA, the reasons a 19 year old, self-centered, insecure girl decides to run off in a relationship with a 59 year old man are usually pretty obvious. Once in a blue moon these sort of relationships work out in the US.
People do fall in love, despite differences in race, culture, wealth or age.
It’s not even worth pointing out the times it doesn’t work out because so many same-age relationships end up in divorce that one can’t make the argument that same-age relationships make for better, longer lasting marriages.. However, strangely enough, here in the Philippines..
And if I go to the larger malls in Cebu, I see it several times a day all through the day.
