For example, as I found out the hard way, Filipinos don’t say “o” in place of “zero” in spoken English when it comes to long numbers (ex: if you read off “103” as “one oh three,” many Filipinos will have no clue what you’re talking about; you have to say “one three” or “one hundred and three”).
While most of the girls I’ve known send typo-filled English texts, I can understand them easily, and we can have conversations where I display my wit and wisdom. Attempting to woo them over a cup of coffee will be torturous because they won’t understand you say.
This means you’ll only be able to see them a couple days a week at If you need companionship around the clock, you’ll have to make your peace with the idea of keeping multiple girls on rotation.
If that makes you feel bad, just remind yourself that a good number of these girls are fucking around on despite their protestations of chastity and fidelity.
(I also later found out that she had hid the fact that she was a single mother from me.) This game is probably the most insidious as the girl doesn’t start fucking with you until just before your date, but there are plenty of others you need to look out for as well.
