Radiocarbon Carbon, which is used to date dead plant and animal matter. I try to keep up, lots and lots of comments via the site here, the youtube channel and the facebook page. Whether you are reading this as someone with interest in moving to the Philippines, or as a person curious about this sort of relationship, I think you will find yourself challenged to keep an open mind about this.


When it comes to pampering, celebrities know best. Also, some materials from prehistoric times, as well as Biblical events, can be dated by carbon San Diego Botanic Garden will amaze you with the diversity of plant collections that represent different California ecosystems. It is possible to date some rocks by the potassium-calcium method, but this is not often done because it is hard to determine how much calcium was initially present. Kids will enjoy seeing rescued abused animals that have a second chance at the California Area Living Museum.

Mandated reporters of suspected financial abuse of an elder or dependent adult: Local Agency Public Construction Act: Small Business Procurement and Contract Act: Mosquito abatement and vector control districts: California Environmental Protection Agency: Web casts of public meetings and workshops.

City and County of San Francisco. Bilingual Teacher Professional Development Program: Hunting and sport fishing licenses: Rare and Endangered Species Preservation Program: Conversion of existing overhead electric and communication facilities to underground locations: Local control and accountability plans: Department of Veterans Affairs: Director of Employment Development: Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund: State Water Resources Control Board: Women, minority, disabled veteran, and LGBT business enterprise procurement: Sustainable Groundwater Management Act: She did volunteer work in the community teaching disadvantaged kids guitar and the importance of staying in school.

Her Aunt and Cousin were present at the table with us the whole time and walked with us as we strolled the mall. There was no touching, no goodbye hug.. On our second date, I was to meet her parents to get their permission to date her.

Her parents had to work late so as we spent time with her Aunt instead. She vouched for me to the parents and finally Sarah and I had dinner at my place, during the day, and I had to have her home before dark. We stayed friends though and still text every so often, but that was the end of that dating adventure. I was to find that things go much faster here in the Philippines. Those are discussed by the 3 rd date, sometimes the first date. Did I mention that Sarah was 18, but still in high school?

Next came Anna, also 18 and a student in vocational school to become a Medical Assistant in Elderly Care. Also very beautiful and goal oriented. My first date with her we met at her apartment.. Even before the interview was over the Mom was already whispering to her husband that I was a good man and that they should consent, which they did.

We went through all this formality just so we could have a semi-private conversation. We ended on good terms. A shame, her cousin Hannah is just wonderful. To be honest, after that I dated so many that it got to be a blur. All were ages from 18 to 20 with no kids.. Not all required the whole process that Sarah and Anna had meeting the folks. But they all involved having either a friend or relative present during the date.

We had lunch and she too dropped out when she said she hoped to have at least 2 children.. I walked with her as far as the main lobby of the mall and stayed inside while she caught a taxi home. I wanted myself on the mall security video that I did NOT go anywhere with her. It pays to be cautious. All this dating at the surface level may sound intriguing and fun, which it kinda was I will admit.. Not because they were young. But because anyone who has dated a lot knows..

Such is life, win a few.. Even as I was returning home from this worst of the dates thus far.. I was getting text messages from a young woman named Michelle.

I had chatted with her in passing at the mall, where she works, but just 10 seconds here and there until one night she and three friends of hers invited me to a dance-club with them about a week ago.

We had a fun time. We danced a lot and everybody went home separately, Michelle and her best friend at her side she shares an apartment with kept each other accountable. She lives three blocks from my place and I can visit her at the deli in the mall anytime.

So, with Michelle being local and all for the no-kids rule.. My goal here is to lay out an examination on the topic of relationships with large age gap differences. Some people love long-distance relationships, or big families. Some people choose same-sex mates in life. But it does kinda break my heart a little when I hear of ex-pats who find the Filipina they love, enjoy a wonderful marriage with their wife who is perhaps 35 years younger and only encounter bigotry when visiting their family abroad.

They say they feel so much more at home here in the Philippines where others see them together and just accept it as a part of everyday life.

Just an acknowledgment that people of consenting age should be free to marry the one they love. I have my work cut out for me. But because I have certain parameters I want to stick to.. I may just fall in love with a woman with two kids and toss my parameters to the wayside. In July, , I took a leap of faith and transplanted myself to the amazing Philippines. I am a single man taking an honest look at all that the islands here have to offer, one day at a time.

I hope you find my LBTSea site informative, entertaining and hopefully a bit of each. Browse around and be sure to sign up for updates via email. I personally know its a hard with so many near perfect choices. If not now, within the next 5 years. That is also one of the reasons Western men are so attracted to Filipinas. Whether its white collar or blue, men love to come home to a woman that adores and respects him.

Men in the U. As a whole, they are decent Godly, hard working young ladies and beautiful ladies that lean on, and fight for their man. But a little jealousy is a good thing because she does have some ownership. Including go halfway around the world.

The ideas that made this nation great have been traded for material possessions and compromised principles. All you need is a camera or laptop and people will smile. But they are genuine,because they will remember you. I look forward to being with my fiance, but almost dread bringing her here, if only for 3 years. I enjoy being there because of the people as well as my family but that primarily because they still live by our s morals, minus the drama of racism. And you Henry, are a good man.

Just take your time and your own advice…. I take writing seriously and my goal was to share not only what I see here, but my honest thoughts and experiences.

But there is a phenomena occurring here that is too easily judged on a superficial level. Yes the wife is to be submissive to her husband and be a good parent to their children..

And Foreign men from not just America but Australia, Gerrnany, Japan, Korea, Canada and other countries are coming here literally by the planeload to find out for themselves the happiness their friends have found with a wife raised in the Filipina culture.

Some men abuse that privilege and do not return the love they are given. That is their own shame upon themselves. But most men, when treated like a King by their loving Filipina wife suddenly find themselves wanting to be a better Man. Your observations are pretty much on the money. I am amazed at how quickly you have worked out and summed up your observations, for most people it takes years to reach this level of understanding, if they ever do.

People in the west have advanced to a point where it is hard for them to know where to they need to go. Too much crappy music that influences their feeble minds. The infrastucture of the wealthy countries are beautiful but some of the people are becoming ugly. A thousand horses would never never ever draw me back to any Australian, English or American women. If I was going to be punished, I would spend my life with a Pinay Bar Girl rather than the garbage in the west.

Oh by the way the later generation of men are not much better than their female counterparts. I suppose I am in my perfect element here. I love to observe and analyze new information. I watch everything, talk to lots of people and try to get to the meat of the matter.

I love it here. I was raised being told the US had the biggest buildings, best lifestyle, etc. They are building structures that seem straight out of sci-fi.

I could see that for years. Here, in the Philippines, okay.. No middle-class to speak of, poor infrastructure and some problems here and there. But overall, people here are much happier. They are survivors emotionally. Henry, upon further observance you will discover that there is a large Filipino middle class. It is a totally different scale of wealth that is based more on mindset and values as compared with material possessions in the western world.

You are on to it, just keep on analyzing and you will see it more clearly. You have already touched upon topics in many of your writings that define this middle class. Sometimes It is just not that clear to us westerners, but it is there. Learning by living there has a similarity with going to military boot camp. You must be torn down before you can be changed. But I only discovered your site by accident a few days back. As all old hands know, that was a major mistake.

But there was a baby involved now 22 and later his sister now And I can only say that regardless of the 50 miles of hard road that was, and remains, their mother, these two gave my life joy and dimension throughout most of their lives.

And even now, tho they are venturing out and have no particular interest in hanging out with their dear old dad, they are a source of pride and satisfaction for me. However, when they were very young, the fallout of the Asian Economic Crisis of or thereabouts meant an end to jobs for a freelancer like me.

And not having a ton of dough, I reckoned the only way I could keep to commitment I had made to be there for them, regardless, I took them back to my hometown of Vancouver in Canada. But there were good schools available for free. So I set the three of them up in a modest house rented and then answered a work call in Hong Kong. And for the next bit I used the good money I was once again making to, first, support the kids and their mother at home, while I lived very modestly in a place where it is hard to do that.

In the course of that I met, after quite a time, a year-old Filippina helper who had been in Hong Kong working, seemingly happily, with a very successful Chinese insurance CEO and a gentleman, unlike many of his type I hasten to add ; she was beautiful, had PhD skills in home and young child management, great personal charm, on and on.

So he favoured her, fell in love with her in fact — tho never trying to pressure her. As she put it to me, growing up she saw only three places; her school, the church and her home, where not surprisingly she had many suitors coming to visit. Then one day her father, back from Saudi Arabia where he was a driver, was drinking with his friends.

She came back from a late afternoon fiesta. He thought she was playing around, beat her up. And immediately after that she started pressuring her various admirers to actually marry her. All the lads with futures, declined. There his relatives scared her into marrying him. Which is when Mt Pinatobo blew up. All was buried in ash and lahar. They were stuck in a re-settlement area, where she apparently was a stalwart of the struggling new community.

So she went to HK. She was hesitant at first, probably not believing I would do such a thing. But we did and it seemed like a perfect answer. In fact it was a perfect disaster. Her kids, two boys, one girl, ranged from 24 down to Eventually I cleared it all off. But it left my kids scarred and cynical, perhaps for good; it destroyed me financially, at least for more than five years. And now, ironically, I find myself at this age researching a return to Asia; not for a relaxed retirement, but to work — which happily colleagues of mine assure me is still possible.

Of course along the way, I came to learn a lot more about people from that country; and there is a lot of violence, for example the young beautiful girlfriend of a much younger IT colleague of mine doing biz in Manila got shot to death in his office in broad daylight. Because his girlfriend actually had a young Phil lover and she, idiotically, believed he had life insurance so with him out of the way, happy trails for her and her real boyfriend.

Just that there is often much more to the portrait. First let me commend you on one of the best researched, heartfelt and written blog articles I have ever read. You are right on the money with almost everything. I could write pages also concerning this topic however you have put it so perfect. Also I would like to talk to you about some of your topics but not in a public forum.

Wow I am blown away by this article. Hi Roxas Ron, coming from you that is such compliment. The Philippines would have probably been a lot better for me and sounds like i would have had a lot more fun there. I do not like New Zealand, but it is better than the US anyway.

I thought it was a good move on his part to marry that girl. They are still married as far as i know. I agree with you about the US and if i have to leave New Zealand, i will probably try to move to the Philippines. So many weather related events are now happening that i am worried that severe food shortages world wide may develop in a couple of years or more.

So, my thinking was that New Zealand is a better place to be than the Philippines if the world food supply starts diminishing substantially especially the rice harvest. If i am wrong and the problem does not get worse soon, then the Philippines is probably a lot better than New Zealand. Mexico seems like it would be a good place to go, but as far as i can tell — too many severe problems including severe drought conditions just like Texas, plus i do not know how i could stay there long term without getting into trouble.

My brother says he is going to Mexico when he gets his social security check. Mexico would be a lot better than New Zealand if Mexico did have so many problems related to the US plus the drought problem. I could write a lot more, but it would just be confirmation of what you have already said. I remember the Woody Allen issue. The other factor, aside from the age difference, was that the girl he married Soon-Yi had previously been the adopted daughter of his girlfriend, Mia Farrow.

But Soon-Yi was not adopted by Woody Allen nor raised by him. My ex-wife, a wonderful woman, was born and raised in Mexico so I made lots of visits there during our year marriage.

The difference between Mexico and the Philippines is that the poor in Mexico have picked up some cruel habits from living in the shadow of the vicious drug cartels. In Mexico, if you have money you are a target for either home invasion, kidnapping or extortion. The cost of living in New Zealand is high, perhaps to some people very high.

Never occurred to me that rice is produced over such a large geographic area that changing weather patterns may not have as drastic affect on the over-all production levels. Time will tell i guess. So glad I stumbled upon your blog and particularly this posting.

This is a core issue for me and frankly even on forums devoted to the Philippines many people still rail against the May-December relationships, and in a very disrespectful way. What you wrote is a fantastic distillation of the views I have come to over the last year. I only have two nits with your analysis. First, apparently I like my women older than you do, since my gf is 24 I am The greens fee includes a cart and valet parking.
