My husband (from the Philippines) doesn't think online is the way to go to meet Filipino's locally. His success rate is to have a Filipino cult group try to recruit him when he was at work! It would be good if we had English speaking Filipino friends we could meet up with, it doesn't matter whether they are gay or not. I just mention we're a male couple to prevent any awkwardness later! For me it's just about mixing up the cultures. We seem to be stuck with him still being about 70% in the Philippines and I think it would be really useful for the pair of us to learn how to convert that into carving out a good life here in the UK. We're strongly considering retirement to PH but that's over 13 years away and I don't want us spending each and every day until then planning for the moment whilst ignoring 'here'.
