Be Friends with their Friends
Getting on the good side of their friends is another plus.
However, you should wait for the opportunity to come. When the time comes if they ask if you’d like to meet their friends, give them a resounding yes.
Just be yourself when you get to get to know their Filipino friends. Don’t be a pretender and force things to impress them. It’s important to remember not to be too friendly with their friends of the opposite sex. Doing so will make them think that you’re going over the line of friendship. That’s the last thing you want if you have plans of being with them in the long run.
Be An Open Ear
Always listen to what they say even if it sometimes gets annoying. You will have your time to talk if it comes to that situation. If they have a problem they want to talk about, lend your ears and attention to the conversation while making eye-contact.
You can also offer them some advice about their current situation, but only give this one upon request. It’s important to make them feel heard by the person who’s making them feel special.
For a Filipino, a romantic partner should always be honest in every way. This means not only telling the truth to them, but also showing them the real you. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not. You will only be lying to yourself and most especially to your beloved Filipino partner.
Honesty starts from within yourself for you to be honest with everybody else around you.
