Meeting a Filipina woman for the first time after you have arranged to visit them in their country can actually be a little more nerve racking than you first think, especially if your intentions are to get married. Those nerves can come on half-way to meeting your Philippine bride-to-be, when you are on a plane, for example.
1. Proper travel arrangements

2. Learn some basic language and ‘how to’ get around – you don’t want to rely on her only
Who else will help you? Do you know her language? You want to be able to move around independently and feel safe. If you don’t have any friend in the area, you are going to, is a good idea considering about hiring a local guide or even a foreigner who will help you with locations and communication. If possible, take a local tour before you meet her so you will have a general idea of the city, helps you to get a better understanding of the lifestyle and cultural issues.
3. Meet your overseas-to-be-bride for the first time, and physical appearances
Often times we have too high expectations for the first meeting and then later we feel almost let down. This makes us feel discouraged in the online dating world, and also dating in general. Being objective about the situation, remind ourselves we need to keep an open-mind, especially when meeting someone whom we have only been interacting online.
Communicating with someone online and having chemistry with the person is different than meeting face to face and may not feel the same. Sometimes, it is easy to discuss anything on the phone or even online than personally. Don’t forget, our levels of comfort with someone cannot just be judged by online communication.
4. It is normal to feel nervous
We all feel very nervous about our first meeting with someone. That is absolutely normal human behavior. For example, we tend to worry too much about what the other person is going to think about us, and we think too much about what to wear so we look good.
We want to impress. All these factors often result in someone getting nervous, and nerves can come on all of a sudden. We all feel different emotions when we are excited. Be aware you might have sudden attacks of panic. Excitement and nerves are very related. Keep control of your thoughts and stay positive. Doing the ‘runner’ and not showing up is definitely not the way to go.
5. Be honest, don’t lie about yourself
The information on your profile and who you are should be real information. Pretending to be someone or something you are not. It will not bring you anywhere good. One of the best ways to destroy a relationship is lying.
Lies will always catch you up. No one likes to be told lies, Do you? Lies only end up hurting the other person and causing mistrust. Just remember to be yourself and if your date (bride, hopefully) doesn’t like you for who are, then you are not a match. If this is the case, you can end the date and feel good always because you remained honest to yourself and her.
