You’re in luck! If you’re reading this, you probably have a Filipina friend who you’d like to date. And, depending if you play your cards right, she may be interested in you as well.

It’s an amazing feeling, but it’s normal to feel anxious as well. Are you certain she’s flirting with you rather than being friendly? Women have several ways of showing interest depending on how they speak to you or behave around you.

Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place. Before we begin, keep in mind that these incredible women are not like the rest. When it comes to love and relationships, it will be nothing like the interest shown by Vietnamese women.

The beauty of Filipino culture is that it emphasizes the importance of family and the expression of love. They stand in stark contrast to western culture, especially American culture. Individualism, which entails crushing those around you in order to rise to the top, does not sit well with Filipinos.

Since friendliness is such an important part of Filipino culture, it’s crucial to understand what a Pinay is thinking when she flirts with you. So you don’t make the mistake of assuming, you need to figure out whether she’s just being sweet or whether she really likes you.

Here are six telltale signs that a Filipina woman is interested in you.

1. She Is Protective Of You

This is without a doubt one of the most obvious indications that a Filipina girl is interested in you. This is a good sign because one of the signs a woman is attracted to you in the Philippines is when she becomes excessively concerned about your health and well-being.

Filipinos, once again, prioritize family and will drop anything to assist family members. Protectiveness is one obvious way to describe Filipina attraction. It’s a sign that she likes you if she starts checking on you to make sure you’re safe and happy.

She likes you if she gives you food on a regular basis.

And if she gives you presents, you can be sure she likes you.

It should be stated that reciprocation is extremely necessary. Ignoring her affection and caring will turn her off, so don’t be stupid. Be thankful AND grateful that she admires you so much.

2. She Introduces You To Her Family

Since family is so important in the Philippines, if she chooses to introduce you to hers, consider it a sign of good faith. If she’s so excited for you to meet her family, she’s probably trying to get permission from them to keep seeing you.

In reality, it’s probably a stretch to say that it’s expected whenever there was a Filipina dating a foreigner.

Without a doubt, this is the most noble of all the items on this list. The fact that she thinks you’re a good enough guy to seek her family’s blessing means that things are urgent. And if you’ve ever been unsure if she likes you or not, this should put your mind at ease.

3. She Starts To Laugh At All Your Jokes

To be honest, it’s a pretty good sign that a woman is into you if she laughs at your jokes (regardless of where she came from). However, things are a little different with Filipinas. It’s important to note that Filipino women are more reserved and reserved than women from other cultures. It generally takes them a little longer to open up and feel at ease with you.

If you notice her suddenly smiling a lot more and laughing at all your corny jokes, it’s a pretty good sign that she likes you (more than usual).

4. No Matter How Bad You Treat Her She Just Won’t Go Away

No, this isn’t a green light for you to go around abusing women. If you do that, you won’t get very far in life, unless you end up in prison. Being unattractive to women makes you unattractive in general. Even if no one is perfect and our acts (intentional or not) sometimes cause harm to others, this should not be used as an excuse to start behaving like garbage.

If you’re friends with a Pinay and you do something very bad (forget her birthday or some other major event) and she forgives you almost immediately, she likes you. She’s very into you if she calls you out of the blue to talk and hang out after you’ve done this a few times.

Whatever kind of body language you’re looking for, if she quickly forgives you after all of that, you can bet she has a huge crush on you.

If you’re the kind of guy who scares women away and forgets important dates, being with a woman from the Philippines isn’t the best idea. Instead of obsessing about all the signals, be frank with yourself and admit that your “wild and free personality” isn’t going to get along with her.

5. She Asks You Out

If a Filipina invites you out to dinner (or to a beer, coffee, the movies, or whatever), it’s a good sign she likes you. Since Filipino women are more traditional and passive than their Western counterparts, this is the case.

Men are normally in charge of the early stages of a partnership in the Philippines.

Approaching a man and asking him out takes a lot of courage for a Filipina. And though what she wants to do is hang out and drink coffee. It contradicts everything she’s been told and demonstrates her willingness to be closer to you.

6. She Talks About You To Her Friends

One of the clearer symptoms is her gossiping about you to her peers. Filipino women enjoy gossiping, and if your circle of friends is large enough, reports of these conversations will almost certainly find their way back to you.

So What Do You Do?

Make the move now that you’ve received assurance, in metaphorically bold letters, that she has feelings for you. Take advantage of any opportunity that comes your way. If the Filipina you like reciprocates your feelings, it’s up to you, the guy, to pick up the slack. Ask her out and see where things go from there.
