The advantage of this is that he does not get embarrassed because he has not started courting the girl in earnest.
) is the Tagalog slang for someone who fails to reach 'first base' in courting a girl because she does not have any feelings for him to begin with.
Here I am a 26yr old foreigner semi-fluent in Bisaya, basic knowledge of Tagalog who is living in the Philippines. I have met some Filipinas that right away make me wish I had the privilege of saying… It helps me inspire some positive thinking in the minds of people I look up to… I have found over the course of my time in the Philippines I have pushed away any opportunity I may have had to date a Filipina and to get close to a Filipina. In fact just a few days ago a foreigner told me: “You must be a big hit with the ladies. Get a few beers in you and I bet all the stories will come out.” Stories of a 26yr old who even though maybe lonely in that aspect of his life, just doesn’t agree with people focusing on being with girls here as being the best part of the Philippines. I completely understand why foreigners talk about the girls here so much, because they are amazing, and yes chances are you will get a lot of attention from them if you are a nice guy. One day we were hanging out looking for ingredients to make some food.
Now if you are Filipino reading this I want you to stop here and think: If you didn’t know me, had no clue what I was doing here in the Philippines. What would your guess be as to how I got here, and why I choose to stay here? We headed to the market in Cebu to pick up fresh vegetables.
Your goal here is to endear yourself to the chaperone so that she’ll allow you some time alone with the woman of your dreams.Remember, a lifelong soulmate may be one where the affection begins slowly and develops for a long time.Don’t turn away in discouragement if the first time you speak with someone you are unsure that she is interested.However, if the girl 'encourages' her suitor (either by being nice to him or not getting angry with the 'teasers'), then the man can court in earnest and the (bridge)--anyone who is a mutual friend of him and the girl he loves--who then conveys to the girl his affection for her.It is also a way of 'testing the waters' so to speak.
