While most men believe that impressing a Filipino woman requires charisma, money, or persistence, there are better, easier, and more affordable ways to do so.
Before we give you our list of recommendations for impressing a Filipina, let us first tell you a story: A “Pinay” (slang for Filipino woman) member of Blossoms Dating filed a report against a member, citing rude behavior as the cause. She got ticked off when he jokingly remarked, “I like your pussy.” Well, he was pointing to the cute kitten with her in one of her profile pictures. But she gravely misunderstood because “pussy” for her meant “that” part of her anatomy, hence the complaint.
So, an improper remark or a display of carelessness can ruin your chances with a Filipina, just like a single witty comment or a small gesture can impress her. A “Pinay” will decide whether or not you are date-worthy relatively quickly, and all the small things you do or don’t do will enable her to make up her mind firmly.
We kept the story we related earlier in mind when compiling this list of recommendations for impressing a Filipino woman. This list is easy to understand and could be the difference between getting her to start showing signs that she likes you and being rejected outright. These suggestions include asking her questions, making her laugh, knowing her family, feeding her, seducing her with compliments, making her feel special, and giving her gifts – which are all a part of the process when making a Filipina fall in love with you.
Impress by Asking Her Questions
When getting to know a Filipino woman, it’s essential to make her feel at ease. Engage in conversations about topics she’s comfortable discussing, such as her favorite things, family, or friends. By asking her questions and actively listening, you demonstrate your genuine interest in her beyond her looks.
Make Her Laugh: Impress with Humor
Apart from smiling often, Filipinas love to laugh. The more you make them laugh, the more you demonstrate that you are funny and emotionally intelligent, all desirable traits in a future partner. Humor leads to laughter, stronger bonds, more happiness in relationships, and a very impressed laughing Filipino woman.
Now, what if you don’t think you are funny? To be funny, you can be something different than a stand-up comic like Dave Chapelle, who by the way, is married to Elaine, a Filipina. Anyone can be amusing and entertaining with practice, but use positive humor in impressing a Filipino woman effectively. So, keep trying until you tickle your Filipina’s funny bone.
Know Her Family: Impress by Building Relationships
You’ve heard the saying that when you marry someone, you marry the entire family. More so with Filipino women. In their relationships, Filipinas frequently involve their family members, particularly their parents. When it comes to life decisions such as dating and marriage, Filipinos often seek the advice of their elders.
Because Filipinas value emotional closeness, they would be even more impressed if you gained their extended family’s approval. Show respect to older family members, make friends with her siblings and acknowledge her parents’ authority by asking permission if you can take her out for a day trip or a date night. Here’s an even better idea, why not invite her family to come along?
Feed Her: Impress through Food and Shared Experiences
It’s no secret that Filipinos love to eat. A global market research firm YouGov survey confirms this and shows that Filipino’s love for food is unmatched worldwide.
Filipinos cook delicious food to feed guests for every occasion, such as birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries, and sharing a meal with family is always sacred in the Filipino home. They are also always excited whenever there’s a new restaurant or café in town.
Take your Filipina on a food trip, not just to Jollibee (a world-famous Filipino chain of fast-food restaurants), unless she insists. Ask what dishes are her favorite and order them for her, or if you can, cook for her. Preparing a meal for your Filipina date will wow her further. And remember this quote from author Alan D. Wolfelt, “Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.”
Seduce Her with Compliments: Impress with Sincere Admiration
A genuine and sincere compliment can impress any Filipino woman. Think about what you admire the most about her and what she admires about herself. Try to look past her attractive physical attributes and consider her interests and passions. She might be particularly proud of her ability to play an instrument, for example. Or, if you know she aspires to be a good mother someday, and if you notice that she’s excellent with kids, praise her for this trait. Make your compliment specific and unique to her. If you master the art of complimenting Filipinas, you will seem smooth, romantic, and, well, seductive.
Make Her Feel Special: Impress through Thoughtful Gestures
You can show your Filipina girlfriend you care by not ignoring her and doing small things for her. Make yourself available if she wants to chat, keep the conversation from revolving entirely around you, and talk about shared interests to help her feel more at ease. Be fully engaged and give her your attention and presence. Here are some doable and proactive suggestions for impressing a Filipino woman and making her feel extra special:
- Text a sweet message for her out of the blue.
- Inquire about her thoughts on something you want to do.
- Call her as soon as you wake up to say “Good morning.”
- Write her a love letter.
- Sing a few lines of her favorite song (Filipinos love karaoke).
Give Her Attention and Gifts: Impress with Care and Affection
At the beginning of this article, we mentioned that most men believe that impressing a Filipina woman requires money. Nothing could be further from the truth. It can be simple and inexpensive to show a Filipina you care, although a small amount of effort is needed to have a positive result. More than presents, you need to give her the gift of your time.
The actual message you’re trying to convey is: I appreciate you, I want to meet your needs, and I think about you even when we’re not together. These concrete and proactive pointers will tell a Filipina everything she needs to know and more:
- Surprise her with something she’s wanted for a long time.
- Have her lunch delivered.
- When she least expects it, hug her.
- Take an interest in her hobbies.
- Buy her a box of chocolates and hide a small gift inside.
- Charge her phone.
- Buy her flowers.
Ask Her Opinion: Impress by Valuing Her Insights
Filipina women are impressed when you ask them for advice. It demonstrates to her that you value other people’s opinions, particularly hers. But be careful not to come across as clueless; you certainly don’t want to act like you know nothing. You also don’t want to make her uncomfortable and put her on the spot.
When asking for a Filipina’s opinion and aiming to make a positive impression, get her viewpoint on a limited set of options, such as whether she thinks you should grow facial hair; this approach allows her to easily express an opinion and opens the door for a more extensive conversation between you, showcasing your genuine interest and leaving a lasting impression.
Know Her Culture: Impress through Cultural Understanding
A willingness to learn and empathy to navigate cultural differences are two essential tools to date a Filipina interculturally. To understand Filipino culture, we recommend listening first and then asking questions. Keep an open mind. When impressing a Filipino woman, there should always be a certain level of truthfulness and openness, which holds especially true in cross-cultural relationships.
Make sure to invest the necessary time in understanding how a Filipina exists within and outside her family dynamics. Her family history and background will help you learn a lot about her. More than anything, she would love for her man to be as interested in her culture as she is.
When you take the time to know Filipino culture, you won’t be prone to making comments and remarks that a Filipina might misconstrue. Remember the “pussy” story we told earlier?
Do Your Research: Impress by Finding Common Ground
We tend to like people similar to us, and a large body of research confirms this. It means you’re more likely to enjoy spending time with someone who shares your interests than with someone who prefers to do something you won’t do.
You can use this to your advantage in impressing a Filipina woman! The trick is to listen to her and carefully highlight what you have in common. Does she say she likes music? Let her know your song! Does she enjoy scary movies? Find out which horror movie is her favorite!
Along with our above-mentioned recommendations, why not add strategies and techniques that are uniquely yours? You do you while exploring all the possibilities of impressing your special Filipina and let us know how it turns out. We’d love to hear from you and your “Pinay.”
