... and the electric still needs paying.

She'll text back after discovering her b/f drunk and incapable AGAIN.

@  Mentalist : (20 August 2018 - 11:43 AM)

Girl I've got on facebook just said "how much you pay?" I responded "2000 babe" and then the phone went silent

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

Yep, I'd trust an LG too.

@  richie155 : (20 August 2018 - 07:20 AM)

yup, my friend fixed his for less than 10 euros... i'm sticking with LG from now on... 1st gen 37"LG flat screen lasted for 15 years and still works, replaced it to get FullHD/4k

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 06:16 AM)

The fix cost peanuts, was well-publicised and could easily be done yourself if you can use a soldering iron. After 11 years I'd defo buy another. Ferraris break too sometimes.

@  richie155 : (20 August 2018 - 05:10 AM)

I had a Simsung with capacitor problems too, never Simsung again for me. On purpose they use too weak capacitors. Too bad the TV's started to break during the warranty period many times. I'm affraid it's not just them who on purpose design such flaws to their products.

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 04:45 AM)

It was capacitors on mine. A well-known failure apparently. Makes TV take forever to start. The parts are cheap.

@  grahamuk : (20 August 2018 - 04:43 AM)

Samsungs are damned good TVs. Well worth getting fixed properly, as I did with mine after 8 years reliable use. Still going strong now, after another 3. The fix cost £90 in UK.... and that was a home visit.

@  Biggles : (20 August 2018 - 04:05 AM)

Well its a Samsung Smart TV so not cheap, worth repairing if I can get a reliable fix. It turns itself off when hot, ok when it cools down, for about 20 mins then off again.

@  lazybugger : (20 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

First thing I had to do was open it and repair it!!! Haha

@  lazybugger : (20 August 2018 - 03:22 AM)

just bought a LED TV fron Lazada, delivered today, for P1,988

@  Sandman!... : (20 August 2018 - 01:04 AM)

statusquo we did one for Duke for his Classic pictures....we shall talk when i get home...

@  Sandman!... : (20 August 2018 - 01:02 AM)

Kadachiman there is a repair shop next to Queens Hotel for air cons you can check there...

@  Sandman!... : (20 August 2018 - 01:01 AM)

Actually i use the computer at my hotel if i had a laptop i would be on it too much that is why oi don't post pictures till i get home

@  stew : (19 August 2018 - 01:57 PM)

some will replace original parts with cheap copy

@  bill44ca : (19 August 2018 - 01:53 PM)

I too would not waste time repairing a TV or Computer unless it was a very expensive one here. But I don't know MacGuyver

@  Biggles : (19 August 2018 - 11:18 AM)

Yes, I had the same thought but a recommendation helps. Dont think it is a major problem.

@  Kadachiman : (19 August 2018 - 09:46 AM)

I have had 3 different companies take 5 attempts to fix my aircond (leaking gas)...still no luck. This and other items that I needed 'repaired' has led me to the conclusion that the skills are not available to fix anything, so better to throw it away and buy new

@  scuba539 : (19 August 2018 - 08:35 AM)

Saw an ad in the Blue Book for ACT TV Repair shop...09178315689...Never used them but claim to have been in Biz since 1981

I’m currently in one of these at the moment. It’s shaping into something that i don’t want. Interested if other members are currently in one of these, have been before and positive or negative experiences that came out of it.


This ad is here because Agoda has changed their policies on hotel bookings regarding affiliates. Agoda is now completely deleting the 365 day cookie along with removing any subsequent
bookings brought though your bookings. Philippines Addicts used to get credit for this along with anybody booking through Agoda 365 days after they initially clicked on our link. With this said, we ask you click on any of these Agoda links when making a booking through Agoda so we can get credit for your booking. It costs you nothing and helps us out a lot. We appreciate your understanding to this truly unfortunately fact. Please click on these Agoda links to help Philippines Addicts get credit where it is due, thanks! Book your Philippines Hotel Here and Now! . We have also added Bookings.com as an affiliate and another choice for you guys to get the best possible deal on booking hotel rooms. Again, this costs you nothing. We ask that you please use the Booking.com links found throughout this site so we can get credit for your hotel booking. It's best to try both websites to get the best possible deal. Please use the links provided on this site, thanks!

If you already booked your rooms and/or you don't use Agoda or Bookings.com we'd appreciate it if you could
for board administration, expenses and improvements if you find this site useful to your needs.

It is really upto you. If you want to take a leap of fate.. why not. Just be smart of course, if she starts milking money from you think twice.

I was in LDR relationship too and I never fooled around and yet I was with this guy that never appreciated it. So paranoid and creates non existent things in his head. He was also brain washed by forums like this so he judged me according to what he reads around and not really knowing me. He thinks that all Filipinas are like this and like that.. lol I tell you not all... really. There are those that are golden if you treat them well, they are just human beings.

It also depends on the core values of the girl you are talking to so good luck and all the best!

When I still lived outside the Phils, I had one that was going relatively well. 

 

Met her on a dating site, not a P4P girl. Came here, met her, her extended family and her friends. We were together for a little more than a year....and there were no trust issues...never asked for money. In the end, we just really weren't a match....she was a bit more clingy than I would like and she was not terribly motivated. We broke up but remain friends....she has since married an Australian guy.

 

That said, that's pretty much the exception to the rule. The other LDRs I attempted were something near train wrecks.

 

Before you get too involved emotionally (if you're not already), really think about how much, time, energy and resources you are willing to devote. Obviously, if you want to actually be with each other, it's going to involve travel...and that's going to involve money and a lot of time. It's a big risk for sometimes a very small reward.

 

Honestly, I'd never do it again. Way more stress than it's worth.

Some work, most don't. If you can put aside the notion of fidelity and accept all you're really doing is reserving your place in line for next time, then sure go ahead.
Make sure you can afford it (if you're sending regular support), and don't think it buys you more than a place in the queue.
For me the best long distant relationships are friendships with freelancers and regulars who I can meet (or not) next trip, I make it clear I don't sponsor or send money but I do bring pasalubong if we meet up. Does it make a difference (pasalubong) ? I doubt it but I enjoy treating my friends and regulars.
Occasionally someone meets a p4p lady who wants out, or can see her shelf life coming to an end (late 20's maybe 30) who is looking for hooker retirement and is prepared to make a go of it, the concensus is non bargirls are the most likely good proposition but it's seriously a crap shoot.
Not for me, for sure.

A long distance relationship?
Or online relationship?

I'm not sure what you're really asking....

If an online relationship, then you've never really met her in person. But you will sponsor/support her and her family and her pinoy BF.

If a long distance relationship, well at least you have seen her. Possibly had her services and enjoyed the time. Now you will go home and promise her a better life for her, her family and her pinoy BF.

Fantasy or reality?

Depends upon your own view. The BMs on this forum have posted/shared many many many of their own personal experiences. The answer is not the same for those lacking experience or lacking real boots in the matter.

But our own experiences/mistakes are the basis for our warnings to the newbies.

I've no doubt there are, I'm not looking for them so don't care. The op might be, in which case I think he should be realistic about what a long distance relationship means or involves and the commitment/trust required to "possibly" make it work.
I still believe unless you spend a fair bit of the year in pi, it doesn't/won't work, two weeks once a yr is not going to cut it.

What do you want ?

 

A girlfriend ? A future wife ? Just somebody to talk dirty with online ? (in which case may be cheaper to subscribe to a webcam or similar titillation site).

 

I have a long distance relationship with my bank and electricity company.

I’m currently in one of these at the moment. It’s shaping into something that i don’t want.

If it is "on-line" then you really do not have any true relationship going on. If it something you don't want then Just Stop Chatting and find something else to occupy your time. If you are a member of the Lonely Hearts Club and cannot find a friend in your area then make a visit to the local animal shelter and adopt a dog or cat as they will serve you better than a chat mate whose imaginary relationship is turning into something you don't like.

I’ll give some more details now to put things into perspective. I met her online, she is a school teacher from Cebu, I’m a school teacher in Australia so we had that in common. I travelled to Phillipines and met her in Cebu. We spent the weekend together and had a great time. We have been in contact ever since.
The thing that’s bugging me is the amount of phone calls. I spoke to her for an hour yesterday morning, and at the end of the conversation she says I’ll call you later. I thought ok so that will mean in the night time. 2 hours later she calls again. I told her I’m busy as the football game was about to start and I would be watching that. 1 hour later she calls again (well maybe fair enough that she doesn’t know that games go for more than an hour). So I don’t want this thing to take up so much of my time. I guess I could talk to her about that.

I want to see her again and all that, unsure of whether to pursue it as a future cause it’s a lot of investment.

Sounds like she is more serious about the relationship than you ?? Filipinas are very pocessive and jealous so keep that in mind . all her free time will be spent on you and she is wondering why you are not the same . if you are not in it for the long haul you should let her know . if you are in it for the long haul just explain to her about how you don't like the calls so frequently. Good luck brother

Don't misunderstand this, but the the phone calls, texts, Viber or whatever, will consume your time at length.

 

There's a 2 hours time difference between you (standard time - but more depending where you live).

She will never understand this. as NEVER in never.

 

You're a short call from being "married" to her..... according to her dream.

 

Like any monger here would say; F**c them and forget them.

Yeah OP incessant contact is definitely a sign that she is keen. Its when they are indifferent, or busy that I would be suspect they have other 'interests'.
Think through what it is that you want.
If you like having lots of personal time & space a Filipina can really challenge that, they will/can build their life around you and want you available to them constantly. Not all will, but I think more often than not.
Think it through, only promise what you really mean and good luck!

Real simple solution: If you are busy at the time of her call - taking a nap, taking a crap, watching football, eating, drinking, etc - just put the phone in silent mode and do not answer the damn thing. If you allow her to control your time via telephone calls heaven help you if you actually get together.  Man Up and take back & keep control, Filipinas culturally have little respect for weak men who they can boss around and if you allow it they will break your spirit and run you into the ground while giving their all to some guy behind your back.

It’s actually pretty common for Filipinos to be separated from their SO’s for long periods of time.

I’ve known many couples where one of them is working abroad or they are both abroad in different countries.

People do what people do. Don’t ask, don’t tell.
