The two main writers at Nomad Philippines are Dante and Jspill.
Thanks for checking out NP. I had been living in the US my whole life and really hated my job. I was ready for a change and thought there must be ways to make money online.
I had heard good things about living in Asia as a ‘digital nomad’, the dating and mongering scene over there. One day I just hit breaking point with the job, decided enough is enough and jumped head first into the idea of becoming location independent.
For 6 months I researched any forum or information I could get on living in the Philippines or working remotely, asking tons of questions to get started then just got on a plane. #YOLO.
Shortly after I was living by the beach supporting myself working online, all the time keeping my expenses under $1,000/month. Some hotels were so cheap I just lived in those month to month.
I had basically no travel experience at all so knew there would be some ups and downs but overall it has gone pretty smoothly. I have made some mistakes along the way but so far none of them have cost me too much. I ended up living in Cambodia and Thailand for a year too, and recently am liking Indonesia a lot.
Now I am just trying to enjoy my life and be happy I found a way out of the 9 to 5 trap so many people fall into. I have told so many friends back home about how great day to day life here is yet none of them listen.
So now I write articles on this site to help others moving to the Philippines. Ask me anything about living in the Philippines or Filipina girls in the comments on any post and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

I work remotely doing SEO and content writing for websites and Dante asked me to build this website for him. So I did and over time started adding my own posts. We first met via the 2+2 poker and travel forum.
We were already both answering a lot of questions on forums to help other guys thinking of moving to Asia, so starting a blog of our own was the next logical step.
My favorite SE Asia destinations are Bangkok, Manila, Jakarta and Saigon, big capital cities with tons of options as far as girls, nightlife, apartments and infrastructure.
Like Dante I do a mixture of dating and mongering, about 50/50. I think that’s the best balance.
Working girls are really cool people and contrary to popular opinion are not being exploited or trafficked, often they enjoy the job, work freelance, and being with them is like renting the ‘girlfriend experience’ without any of the downsides. Win win. Like giving to charity.
What this site is all about is basically a mixture of both dating and P4P (pay for play), alongside travel, food, fitness, personal development, and being a digital nomad (working online around the world). SE Asia is the best spot for those things thanks to the low cost of living and lack of third wave feminism.
So we are ‘sexpats’ but also respectful of women and thankful of the opportunity to have so much fun here. We both moved out here in our mid 20s.
Ask any questions you have in the comments on any post and like Dante I’ll get back to you.
