Texting Filipina Girls
Filipina women LOVE to text. At one point the Philippines was dubbed the ‘texting capital of the world‘. They always want to feel connected with other people and get bored or lonely very quick. There are days where I wake up to 20 texts.
The mobile 3g isn’t that good here so you don’t see many girls with on chat apps like Line and Whatsapp, like in Thailand. Instead they get unlimited SMS text bundles.
You can really make a lot of progress with Pinays that you want to hang out with by just being kind and responsive in texts.
Filipina girls generally don’t want to have in depth conversations in text. Usually a “Hi! How are you?” is enough. They will say they are ok and ask how you are and often that is the end of it.
They also like to ask “did you take your dinner yet?” as a conversation starter. At first this seems really odd, but you will get used to it.
I like to send out texts to Filipina girls a few times a week just so they keep me in their mind. Some of them have told me how much they appreciate the fact that I want to keep communication open with them.
Lots of times they won’t have load (what they call phone credit) and can’t respond, but they still see them.
Silly corny jokes work great. A few times over the years I have lost some contacts because they didn’t like my joke, but if they were that stuck up and boring then we wouldn’t have got along well anyways.
Overall making them smile and laugh is a big positive. You should also put lots of smileys in your texts 🙂 😀 etc.
One annoying thing about texting in the Philippines is that the networks don’t always work together. Let’s say a girl has the SUN network and buys unlimited texts for one day for 10 pesos.
She will only be able to text other SUN customers. So if you have Smart or Globe she can’t text you. That makes it difficult to get ahold of Filipina girls at times.
If you will be living in the Philippines long term you should probably get a sim for each network. Even if you buy unlimited texts to all networks that is not enough because the girls on other networks won’t be able to reply to you.
It’s really cheap to send texts in the Philippines. With SUN you can get unlimited texts for one month to other SUN users plus 1000 texts to other networks for under $5.
With Smart you can get unlimited texts to all networks plus 150 minutes of call to all networks (except you can’t call globe) for $5.50.
Definitely Text, Don’t Call
If you are the type of person that always calls and never texts you are going to need to improve your texting game.
Trying to have a phone conversation with Filipina women works about 10% of the time.
Even if she is really good at English the success rate is quite low. It got to the point where I never even answer if they call, just tell them it’s noisy where I am so let’s text.
I’ve had enough failed conversations on the phone to know it’s not even worth trying anymore. Texting Filipina girls is the way forward.
