On the plus side, though, I love how detailed people’s profiles are.
And it’s actually not that tedious to fill in your own profile, thanks to the Tinder-like yes-or-no swiping game (e.g. Swipe right for yes, and left for no.”) Unlike Tinder, it’s easier to get a gauge of what kind of person you’re checking out.
It’s also a huge deal that you always view profiles in complete anonymity; I wouldn’t want to come off as a perv – even if I sometimes am. You might get a little sick of swiping left after a while but hey, at least you’re sure that the only one who gets to talk to you are people you’ve already pre-approved.
This feels so much like Friendster when it comes to viewing profiles.You always see who checks you out every single time, and the free version has no real privacy settings so basically anyone can ogle you whenever they please.It’s good if you like the person, but otherwise it makes me feel kind of violated.I mean, it is possible, but only if you are naïve enough to send money to a woman you have never met. It Feels so Good to Help In case you think that I spent all my time on Pinay online dating sites, you are wrong.

Whenever I saw a homeless child, I bought something to eat. I could have never imagined that helping other people feels so good. You will have the same thoughts when you realize that it can cost very little to have a huge impact. Filipinos are among the Nicest People in the World Yes, not every smile is real, but that doesn’t change anything about the fact that Filipinos are among the nicest people in the world. I’m talking about everyone, no matter what gender or social class.
