For Davao girls you are a celebrity.
In Manila you're not. And the city is a shithole.
The constant honking drives you crazy and you are surrounded by creepy people who try to sell you the IPhone that they just stole from you.
Cebu is an amazing city, but it’s getting more and more crowded.
…an incredible city with beautiful women who would kill to meet a man like you.
Davao is a highly urbanized city with 1.6 Million inhabitants that was built on Mindanao, the second largest island in the Philippines.
But it’s more than just a beautiful city on a sunny island.
It’s a place that none of your friends has ever visited. It’s a place where you, as a foreigner, are still a novelty. It’s a city that turns finding the woman of your dreams from nearly impossible into a goal that you can achieve within 24 hours.
And it’s definitely a place that you should visit, especially when your love life sucks more than a prostitute in Tijuana.
3 Reasons Why You Should Not Ignore Davao
Let’s face it. Most people, who visit the Philippines land in Manila, stay there until they can’t take it anymore, or fly directly to Cebu. There’s nothing wrong with that, at least when you are willing to miss out on the experience of your lifetime.
Cebu and Manila are the two cities that are known by tourists, but sometimes the cities that are the least known are the ones that offer the best experiences.
Let’s have a look at the three reasons why you should not ignore Davao and its girls…
1. Davao is One of the Safest Cities in the Philippines
I remember when I told my mom that I am going to visit Davao. She did some research and called me the same day. She didn’t cry, but she was close. She begged me to stay away from this “dangerous” and “evil” place.
Why did she react like that?
Well, there have been some kidnappings around the islands of Mindanao. That’s why everyone in the West, at least the people who know that Davao exists, tells you that it’s way too dangerous to go there.
The chance to get kidnapped in Davao City is as high as the chance to get abducted by a horny alien who looks like Amanda Seyfried.
Just avoid the islands that are known for terrorist kidnappings (you would be stupid to go there anyway) and you are fine.
It’s hard to find a place in the Philippines that’s safer than Davao.
People will stare at you because you are a foreigner (more on that later), but there are also way less creepy dudes who want to sell you all kind of crap.
2. Davao is the Cheapest of the Golden Three
Everyone with a Western salary or a budget of at least $800 a month will agree with me that the Philippines are pretty cheap. It should be obvious that Davao is cheaper than Manila, but many people don’t know that, even though it’s bigger, it’s also a lot cheaper than Cebu.
And the women will look at you and think “I want this man…now”.
3. You Will Love the Women of Davao
What’s the real reason why you clicked on this article?
Maybe you are interested in Davao’s landmarks, but you probably don’t give a flying fuck about that. Be honest. You want to meet a woman in Davao. You want to travel to Davao, because you are into Filipinas. There’s nothing wrong with that.
You’ve spent hours on the internet searching for the perfect place to meet the Filipina of your dreams. Then you stumbled upon this article.
Congratulations, you are one step closer to meeting gorgeous Davao girls. And believe me, they love you and you will love them.
Why Dating Davao Girls Is So Special
Why did I just say that Davao girls love you and that you will love them?
Because it’s true. These women LOVE you.
Just think about it for a second. You are a Western man looking for women in a city that has nearly zero tourists. Yeah, okay, they occasionally see a hairy backpacker who visits every goddamn island of the country. But they’ve never seen a man like you.
To them, you are special. That’s what makes the relationships with them so special…
Imagine you are together with your personal groupie. She loves you. She does everything for you. The last thing she wants is to leave your side. Heck, leaving you is outside of her reality.
That’s how it is to be in a relationship with a woman from Davao.
Now I already hear the feminists scream that this is bad, because yada, yada, yada...
It’s not. This is what every man dreams of.
Show me one man who says he doesn’t want a woman who is 100% loyal, who supports him AND who doesn’t even think about leaving him and I look into the face of a liar. Yes, this unknown place in the Philippines might be the last city you ever visit as a single man.
The Universities Produce Educated Women
Davao has five big universities. You can check them out here. The most popular one is the University of Mindanao. Thanks to these universities, it’s not that hard to find a woman who is both beautiful and educated.
Seriously, you won’t have a hard time finding a beautiful and educated student or a sexy office drone who doesn’t care if you or she pays the burgers at Jollibee.
You Will Find Your Catholic Wife
Are you a Christian man who is looking for a woman who shares the same belief?
You will find her in Davao.
Over 70% of the population in Davao is Roman Catholic. There’s a high chance that the Davao girls you are soon going to meet online are Catholics. I am not very religious and couldn’t care less about that, but if it’s important to you that your future wife is Catholic, you might as well book a flight to Davao.
Where to Meet Davao Girls Online
When it comes to dating in the Philippines, there are many online dating sites to choose from. I tested many of them, but there’s just one that I can recommend without turning into Pinocchio.
Filipino Cupid is by far the best online dating site that you can use to meet sexy Filipinas and maybe your future wife. And it’s free to join.
Once you have signed up, it’s time to choose a profile picture that proves that you are a normal dude and not a weird psychopath. Hint: don’t upload the Halloween photo with the bloody sword.
Have you joined Filipino Cupid and did you upload a profile picture that says “sexy motherfucker looking for wifey for lifey”?
Good, then it’s time to fill out your profile, to look at all the stunning profile pictures and to upgrade your membership to contact all the stunning girls who want to meet you.
And believe me. They want to meet you!
But you will only look at such a statistic, if you put the following three Davao online dating tips into practice.
3 Essential Davao Online Dating Tips
Don’t worry. I am not going to tell you to pose in front of a Lamborghini or to turn your profile into a web of lies. You don’t need to be superman. Online Dating in the Philippines is not as brutal as online dating in the West.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t increase your success rate by following three simple rules…
1. Make Clear That You Are in Davao
Did I tell you that Davao girls are not used to tourists?
The main reason why some of the girls I contacted didn’t believe that I was really interested in them was because I still had Germany as a country in my profile. That was dumb.
“Never in a million years will this guy visit me in Davao”
That’s what they thought. All I had to do to skyrocket my success rate was to change the location in my Filipino Cupid profile. I instantly received more messages and more interests. Simple, I know, but highly effective.
2. Tell Her Why You Are in Davao
Davao is not particularly known for its tourist attractions. They neither have a Big Ben nor a Statue of Liberty, and the women on Filipino Cupid know that. They know that there is another reason why you visit Davao. And so they ask themselves…
“Why is this guy coming to Davao? What’s his agenda?”
How do you solve this problem?
Just write down why you are coming to Davao. Believe it or not, but my experiments have shown that “I want to meet the love of my life” works better than “I am here on a business trip”. Yep, honesty goes a long way.
3. Tell Her that You Are NOT From Angeles City
Angeles City is one big brothel. Davao is not. When I was in Davao, I haven’t seen one single go-go bar. Okay, maybe I walked past it. I’ve never been a red light junkie. I rather want real and authentic relationships. I don’t sponsor.
And Davao girls don’t want a guy who sponsors.
It was kind of weird, but all the girls I went out with asked me if I had been to Angeles City. They all wanted to know if I was THAT kind of guy.
And it makes sense. Davao is NOT a sex tourist hotspot. Most of these girls have never seen a go-go bar, let alone to Angeles City. They just hear the stories and they are scared. They are scared that you are one of these guys. Tell them that you are not (which I honestly hope).
Where to Meet Davao Girls in the City
Davao is safe. Don’t be afraid to go out for a day game session. You won’t be kidnapped by crazy terrorists, just because you approach a local girl. The worst thing that can happen is that she follows you to your apartment, because she is so happy that you approached her.
There are, however, certain places that are perfect for meeting the Davao girl of your dreams. You’ve already seen a video of one of these places…
First Stop: University of Mindanao
The University of Mindanao has over 42.000 students. Many of them are women and many of these women are both intelligent and beautiful.
Just be careful that you don’t get kicked out by a security guard.
In case you are under 35, campus game is absolutely no problem. Just tell the curious security guard that you are an exchange student. In case you are over 50, you can say that you are a professor and in case you are over 70 you can ask for the direction to the casino. He’ll think that you have Alzheimer’s and let you continue.
Aldevinco and Gaisano Mall
The Aldevinco Mall and the Gaisano Mall are the only two malls that I have visited when I was in Davao. But I’ve heard that they are the biggest. I mean, just have a look at the Gaisano Mall:
It’s impossible to not find a beautiful Filipina that you can approach. Both malls are perfect to meet beautiful Davao girls.
Club Echelon in Davao
Are you a big fan of night game?
Are you one of these guys who can’t survive without a night of partying and clubbing?
Then go to the airport, book a flight to Cebu and don’t ever go to Davao. Yes, Davao has more inhabitants than Cebu, but these inhabitants are not your typical party people.
Davao is not a good place for night game lovers.
There’s only one club that I can recommend and that’s the Echelon club at the Gaisano Mall.
It’s not the best club in the world, but you can find one or two beauties there.
How to Attract and Seduce Davao Girls
Don’t freak out. I am serious. Do not freak out…when a girl is running up to you and telling you that she is single.
I can’t even remember how many times this happened to me. It must have been 5 or 6 times. I felt like Brad Pitt on Hollywood Boulevard. As soon as I stepped in a mall, the girls were giggling. I actually asked one of the female staff members about the best restaurant in the mall.
Her answer: “Pogi, do you want my number?” (pogi = handsome boy)
You will probably experience the same.
Just don’t freak out when a woman runs up to you and tells you that she is single. She’s not a terrorist. Just smile and enjoy it.
Think About a Good Excuse Why You are in Davao
Approach her like you would approach any other girl. Give her a compliment. Tell her how beautiful she is. She’ll smile so much that her jaw is about to break. Remember, she is not used to talking to foreigners and if you approach her, she feels like Cinderella who just found her second shoe.
The only question you have to be prepared for is this one:
“Why are you in Davao?”
I already discussed this earlier when I talked about online dating in Davao. They want to know why you are here. The last thing you want is to answer with “uhm uhhh because uuhh”.
Tell her that you are looking for love. She’ll want to be the one you fall in love with.
Take Her to the La Piscine Restaurant in Palm Village
This is by far the best dating location in Davao City. Okay, it’s the only one I tested…besides Jollibee (Urgh!). Feel free to share a better dating venue in the comments below.
The La Piscine Restaurant in Palm Village has good food and it has a pool that you can use afterwards.
Oh, and in case things get hot, you can book a room upstairs and stay there for one night…or a month.
Let Her Giggle
One more thing…
There’s only one person who does the talking and that’s you. Yes, there are some girls who run up to you and tell you that they are single. It can happen. But the majority of girls you approach are going to giggle, blush and giggle a bit more.
For them, it’s like Brad Pitt approaching some random girl in downtown L.A.
That’s how they feel. That’s how rare it is for them to get approached by a good-looking foreigner like you.
She is nervous and every second she doesn’t shit her pants deserves a “hallelujah”.
She won’t be able to talk. It’s your job to do this.
Closing Thoughts on Dating Davao Girls
So, you contacted one, two or 143 Davao girls on Filipino Cupid. 58 of these girls were really beautiful and 27 had profile pictures that turned you into a drooling dog.
After you cleaned your keyboard from all the drooling, you go on one, two, or 27 dates. Some of those dates are good. Others make you feel like…
On date number 12 you meet a girl who seems to be special. She has traditional family values, you have the same humor and she is not a complete psychopath. She is girlfriend material. Hell, you want to marry her straight away.
You want a relationship with her. She wants the same.
What do you do?
Lying is Not the Solution
What if you really love this girl and you can imagine a future with her? Awesome! Tell her what you feel, visit her every couple of months and find a way to either live in Davao with her or to get her to your country.
What if you somehow love this girl and you maybe want to visit her again, but you definitely don’t want to marry her? Be honest. Don’t be one of these guys who promise the world and then leave her in the trash can.
Don’t let her wait for something that will never happen.
She Doesn’t Want to Leave You. Ever
Filipinas who live in Manila or Davao are very clingy when a foreigner shows interest in them, even though they know that there are many guys to choose from. Davao girls are the epitome of clinginess, because they know that the next guy who is as amazing as you might never come.
Don’t just say “yeah, we are in a relationship”, because you want to continue to sleep with her. You will regret this. If you call your Davao girl your “girlfriend”, she only hears “wife and mother of my five children”.
Maybe that’s a bit too much for you. Maybe it’s not.
What if this is exactly what you are looking for?
Summed Up Wisdom
The city is cheaper than Cebu and Manila, it’s one of the safest cities in the Philippines and the girls are so friendly that you will receive “thank you for going out with me!” messages after the first date. Welcome to Davao.
Davao is the wrong city for nightlife freaks, but the right city for guys who are looking for a family-oriented girl with Christian values. But be warned. You might not want to stay single. And maybe that's the best decision of your life.
