These are all practical and not mysterious. In the last upload I covered the first 50, today I will go over the other half.

If you can do these kinds of things, your chances of having a solid and lasting relationship with a Filipina go way up. I have maintained the man, the husband needs to lead or give direction to the relationship, and here are some good ways how, and remember that much of what I talk about can be used with any woman, so that is great for you guys who are thinking a woman from overseas might not be the way to go.
