No love, not even the slightest sign of any kind of empathy. I grew up around mostly white people, that's what surrounded me.It's not a surprised I ended up marrying a white guy.I don't know exactly what happened but they got a call a few months prior to him dying and I guess they must have realized he hadn't long to live. I've visited the Philippines with my family, on my own,with my own family now. I am of Filipino background, but I don't have those attachments to the PI like some of kids I grew up with did or their parents do.
She was so excited to finally inherit his huge savings, his home and his huge super nest egg. My family is also very educated-nurses, doctors, engineers with the exception of my father, who was a welder that became a chef in Canada.When in the Philippines visiting in 2012, I don't think I have been asked for more money, tips and insistence on this is how things are done here, type of deals.My parents gave my husband, my daughter and I guidelines for time we were not with them. I've chatted to many Pinas and my sister suggested I just go for nice plain girl.I tried to contact her again but she didn't come back online which seemed kinda strange.I can't say I'm the least bit surprised looking at all the other stories running down the page. Their friends play along with the charade as they say all the most charming things. If you ever meet a pinay online NEVER BELIEVE A WORD SHE SAYS!!!They always say "Miss you", "love you", "mahal" , "I love you so much", I know this is all pretty obvious that they don't love you still any guy that believes they do is going to end up terribly hurt and broke. They will say they love you and want relationship, but it's a lie. They will make lies like: "I need to pay bills, tuition, medical, etc...Although I don't speak Tagalog, I brought my cousin with me on a trip to Manila from my parent's province to interpret things for me.I knew enough to know if we were being scammed or not. Maybe it's more prevalent in the big cities, I see less of it in the province, but I see the whole scamming of a little more money here and there from some.The people who were taking care of my grandmother before she passed away were stealing from her.My parents, aunts and uncles sent a monthly allowance and the caretaker took a 1/3 of that on top of her salary. It's sad, but I guess not knowing if you're going to be jobless day by day for some brings out a "by any means necessary" instinct.
