The partner to a Filipina needs to have charm, wit and intelligence.
This is assumed because you are smart enough to get to Philippines and charming enough to capture her heart so foreigners start with an advantage here.
If you are looking at Philippine women and you want children you are probably looking at a lady aged from 20 to 40. A 20 year old girl, looking for a man aged 40 to 60, may find herself attracted to a man who is 60 and looking for a lady aged 20 to 40. On the other hand a 40 year old Filipina, looking for a man aged 40 to 60, may find herself attracted to a man who is 40 and looking for a lady aged 20 to 40. With some exceptions, 18 is the age when a girl can legally date a foreign man.
There is some controversy about dating a 17 year old, with parental permission, in a non-physical, chaperoned environment but even that has been challenged under established Philippine law.
When you first look at Internet Dating sites you will see some Filipinas looking for a man aged 29 to 79. She also sees a 79 year old, and all ages in between, as equally mature.
This may seem odd in your culture but is perfectly understandable here. Not everyone is that flexible in the range of ages they prefer.
The family will accept whatever age gap exists as normal.
They will see you as the rich relation and they may hit you up for a loan to buy some pigs or build a sari-sari store.
A typical Philippine woman wants a man who has financially established himself, to the point where he does not need to leave and go to work for days at a time.
She will probably want children, but men have the capacity to produce children well into their senior years.
Thus a typical Philippine woman may look for a man aged 40 to 60.
The age of partner you are looking for will vary with your personality and culture. Thus we find the “right age gap” to be a number anywhere between 0 and 40 years difference. Yes, a Filipina can be too young to date a foreign man.
