  2. Of course age does matter.
    You can’t fall inlove with someone older than your parent’s, Especially here in Philippines we have our own culture, The judging issues here is worst, Most of our care’s. How people in our surrounding will react. Beside he have enough money to provide you and your family that you can say that age doesn’t matter, So you wouldn’t care about people saying, Coz you know that he have capable to provide you. For my opinion as a filipina, Now a days age doesn’t matter coz we won’t think love, We are thinking about our future. Just my opinion

    1. just dont generalized! when i was in my early 20’s ,i was dating men in their 60-70’s .they were my age preference .didnt care what anybody said then ,as long as we were happy .i learned so many things from them .now that im in my late 50’s , i have crush for men in their 60’s – 90’s obviously not for kinky sex anymore ,but other fun stuff!

  3. You guys make a great couple.
    It’s interesting how I didn’t really understand the “age gap doesn’t matter” thing until I could see and listen to a Filipina talking about it, and get an audio and visual read on her sincerity as she was explaining her POV.
    It really brought home to me how twisted we are in the West about this issue. It’s like some weird, Puritanical, social-control thing, trying to frighten everyone into “staying in their lane.”

    1. It’s a Western concept, that we are brought up to believe and accept. Other cultures are more accepting and open minded to something different to that. There are many other factors that make a relationship successful or not, being of similar age isn’t one of them, as the divorce rate in Western countries proves.

  4. Love the video. I met my girl on Filipinacupid on December 25 and we are still talking everyday. She is from Borongan Eastern Samar and hopefully i can come to meet her this July. I met already her family on videocall and i think she is honest. Thnx for explication🇧🇪🇧🇪🇧🇪🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭

  5. I think Geo her name is Ding is that correct I think your a very nice girl n smart too you guys look like a nice couple. I love all Philipino food I can not think of any I don’t like.This was a really good video the topic could be talked about for hours. I liked this video great job enjoyed it thank you

  6. lucky you left Malaysia looks like Malaysia and Singapore are giving all arrivals STAY HOME NOTICE 14 DAYS along with Vietnam good you got back there 14 days still will go by fast along with USA some cities lockdown

  7. I was living and working in the Phils during the 90’s and early 2000’s and Gio’s girlfriend typifies the Pinoy’s philosophy about all things in life ,, it’s all about respect ,, and how you look at things ..
    Filipinos see things differently than our anal American society … they take the Big Picture look at life.
    We should follow their example.

  8. Your girlfriend has a good level of maturity, that’s very important, no age gap doesn’t matter but each of you have to have similar values and respect, chemistry is most important along with mutual attraction

  9. I was wondering the same thing about a foriegn guy being seen with a Filipino woman. I plan to soon go to the Philippines to meet the girl I’ve been video chatting with for months. But I am a bit concerned about getting backlash from the Filipino men. From all the Info I get most Filipinos are peaceful people. But I also worry about having to defend myself if it came down to it. Have you ever experienced Filipino men giving you a hard time about this. Because I’m about your age and the Filipino girl I’ve met is 26

    1. @Gio in the Philippines somehow I’m not surprised by this. Ha ha ha. The old women are looking out for the young women. I gotta admire that.

    2. You will certainly get a few looks, from guys and girls, but you get used to that after a while, and it varies from place to place also. People in the city are largely used to seeing it. Filipino men are polite and respectful, and would never say anything directly to you, yes they might comment to one another, but that is natural … Filipinos love chismis haha.

  10. It’s very important that both parties think in terms of GIVING respect, not receiving. I find this is where a lot of women lack because many many, in my experience, want to be treated with more respect than they want to give.

  11. I’ve met a lady in Philippines on line, she’s 43 I’m 67, I feel she’s on the borderline of age with me. I certainly wouldn’t be interested in pairing with a younger lady. By the way, she has 2 teenage children & a 3 year old g,child, I’m looking forward to meeting up with her when this pandemic stops me from traveling …..

  12. Subbed a couple of weeks ago. I’m from England, my gf is Filipina and is 24 years younger. I’m 58! I have to wait till next year to be with her again. I cannot wait to re-start our new life adventures. The age gap is a good thing in our relationship. Best of luck to you both. A lovely couple. 🙏👍

  13. You look like you’re in decent shape so the age gap doesn’t seem like it’s that big of a deal. Still noticable of course.

    But to all the middle age out of shape slobs or 50+ year old geezers, the only reason they don’t like the age question is because it reminds them that had to go to some crappy 3rd world county to find a young girl to make themselves feel good about themselves.

  14. I find that when I’m in an age-gap relationship, I have to constantly suppress the need to show off the hot new girlfriend. It is a lot of work, but the public good of ensuring people don’t choke on their Big Macs back home is worth the sacrifice.

  15. Hi Gio, at the beginning of this video you said that you can keep up with your GF with physical activities but you didn’t address the other issues of compatibility. You have more life experience than she does with coping with different situations. Is this ever a problem in your relationship?…..Thank you….

  16. The sexual market value of a man increases with his age, even in the US. A 50 year old man can easily bag a 30-something female if he has status and means. He doesn’t even need to be good looking but it helps.
    A 30 year gap is a bit much in the US, but there are no shortage of broke young women looking for “father figures” they never had to lead them, plus financial security above all else. I’ve seen this many times.

  17. Gio I think YOU got some assurances in the making of this video on this day. From my perspective all indications point to positive as you are both honest with one another.

  18. Great video.majority of the vloggers in Philippines give good advice for meeting or living in Philippines.i also watch old dog.i met my Filipino wife through a mutual friend on FB.she is about 1/2 my age .funny thing is my oldest son is 4 years older and his brother is a year younger. Will be married 4 years in November.keep the great videos coming.stay safe

  19. Thanks for sharing. Ging gives me hope there are level headed mature Filipinas, my ex is not the case. Communications is key, and it depends on the couple; their values and compatibility, not the age difference. Even had a US priest tell me that. God bless you two.

  20. new viewer here and subscriber. you both are cute couple and I wish you lots of happiness. age is just a number. my filipina is 32 and I’m 44. I’m from nyc usa. keep up the great videos.

  21. I was watching Reekay video about age gap relationships. I agree with him 100%! Personally, my Filipina fiancée is a few years older than me. This is not an issue for us. I’m gonna watch your video now! 🙂🇵🇭

    1. Obviously you are the extreme minority that your partner has a few year difference and the only one I have seen, with your woman on the older side.
      It requires big compromises from the younger one and eventually it will break down unless the younger one is willing to keep the compromises in place.
      Seriously, like all filipinas with marriages of 20+ years older men, are gerontophiilic.
      (De) Illusions of older white western men.

  22. Your girlfriend is a good
    one!
    Anyway have you met
    or know any vegetarian
    guys who moved to Pinas?
    I don’t eat meat, fish, or
    poultry.
    when I’m in the Philippines
    I’m eating noodles, eggs,
    adobo kangkong..
    My kid is vegan.. could
    she survive in meat mad
    Philippines?

  23. Great questions Gio, I think if the foreigner and Filipina is serious it doesn’ t matter where or how they meet. I do think meeting in person gives you a more in-depth of who she / he is like.

  24. If am a guy and serious to settle down i will court Gio’s girlfriend one of her sister, hehehe therefore i know some already about their family values. Could you imagine climbing the coconut for you lol.

    1. Very well said. It’s the same in the ex socialistic countries, like Ukraine, Moldova etc.
      Poverty will make you do incredible things to move up and survive.
      Let’s give this girl a good paying job, professional skills and a bunch of money and see where that “love” goes.

  25. nice video and lot of good input from ging as well. I am 20 years older than my gf but we are perfectly matched and have been in ldr for 8 years with my yearly visits and I plan when I retire to be in the phillipines with her. It’s not easy being so far apart but with the face to face video every day makes it almost perfect but nothing like close together in person. thanks for the video. enjoyed it

  26. Exactly cuz AGE IS JUST a number, it doesn’t matter at all as long as you love & respect each other, I can relate to this cuz in my case I’m older than my boyfriend though so who cares 😂❤

  27. Beautiful background…is that close to home, downtown? Looks very nice. I would love to take a month, and stay a couple weeks in Cebu, and a couple weeks in Dumaguete. I’m hoping to take 3 weeks next next year, assuming we don’t still have the coronavirus to contend with…I was supposed to leave today, for a two week stay in the Philippines, but that’s all been canceled…stay safe

  28. Seriously stop beating around the bush, if you have a steady income, and you are dating some girl from the province that lives on $2,000 a year, and you got $ 3,000 a month coming in, you are Brad Pitt to this girl. If you are 60 years old and have no money, then you are a 60 year old dude that no girl wants. It’s not bad, its just the way life is. Men have the burden of providing, women have the burden of beauty, but stop acting like your ability to provide a filipina a good life isn’t the primary reason she is with you.

  29. My wife is 41 year younger than me. I am 64 and she is 23. We have been together for 3 years now and very happy with each other. We don’t care what other people think.

  30. 25 years in asia. there is a positive correlation between age gap and finances: the larger the gap the more money is needed. i worry more about an intellectual gap, not university degrees but intelligent curiousity and fast learning curve. ging keeps repeating, “it’s about how you treat me, respect me and how you treat my family” while gio is seeking insightful, intelligent replies. treatment and respect means material support, not completely, but significantly, and it grows as the relationship ages. similar in the philippines, indinesia and thailand. overseas chinese in these three countries are quite different in outlook.

  31. Hey Gio, I’ve been subscribed for a few months now and I enjoy the content. Keep up the good work.

    I wanted to ask about how it is driving there because I know it’s a lot different from the west. Also curious about buying vehicles/auto insurance on a tourist visa. Thanks

    Oh, and I was thinking that a helpful video to cover would be a checklist of what to do before you make the move to the Philippines and maybe a few other things to do once you’re there.

  32. She’s a smart girl – respect is the most important thing. If your ages are the same but you don’t have mutual respect then I won’t work. She’s right, it’s about how you treat each other and get along.

  33. Age gap is not the problem….. it’s the long term expectations and priorities that cause problems. I’m 60+ and having a baby is not in my plans. Yeah… people stare at us…. but I don’t care… I’m very proud of my GF…..if you’re happy, that’s all that really matters !! The secret to eating balut is don’t make eye contact!!! 🐣😆

  34. Gio your Italian background is your strong point definitely with your girlfriend I’m convinced she is your forever because Italian men are very loyal and devoted traditionally to the family and girlfriend. Well done Gio.

  35. I love it when Ging is thinking deeply she crinkles up her nose….😂😂😂
    I am 69 so I am ok as your comments were not aimed at my age group. 😂😂😂

  36. Sir I also prefer to marry a Philipina but they are expecting too much. Like I have to take care of her and her entire family which is impossible to do for me bcos my salary is not much. So pls can you tell me what shall I do then? I love them but I cannot see bright future with them. I think I will be staying poor forever bcos I have to spend more than my salary to support her and her family too.

  37. And here in Dubai most of the philipinas are after money. And so many are doing prostitution so it is hard to get a good woman here in Dubai. So what about in philipins? Are they same ? Pls answer me if u are free.

  38. And so many women are getting old but still they don’t want to get married or they just want to enjoy with single life and less responsibilities. So why are they not thinking or serious for marriage life? Pls answer me.

  39. No self respecting Asian/pacific islander family would ever let their daughters marry a man that is older than the parents or twice her age…unless there is some kind of benefit for them be it financial or status of some kind.

    But that’s not to say that it will not work between the two just because of age…but it’s not widely accepted.

  40. Great vlog as usual. Ne & I have the same number of years gap like yours. She is the same age as U r. It really hasn’t been a problem here at all. We met on FB Messenger while I was in the states two yrs. ago. I have been asked why when I was looking for a G/F I wanted a Filipina. I wasn’t looking for a G/F & never met a Filipino before. One found me, lol. We have been together for 14 months now, pretty much 24/7 & had no real problems in our relationship. Sometimes in life, if U r blessed love finds U. Keep them coming.

  41. It’s quite simple in the Philippines or any parts of the world, you have money you can get young woman. As they say in the Philippines, No Money, No Honey…….

  42. I enjoyed your conversation thoroughly. My fiance is 19 years younger and we get the stares sometimes when we walk around in Makati and other areas. The important thing about our relationship is how much we respect each other and seem to be so much alike in our values. Who would have thought I would have to travel around the world to find my soulmate. I will retire in 15 months and move to Philipines so please keep educating me.

  43. You two are so beautiful together! I have watched all of your videos together and I am very happy for the two of you! May God bless you and may He continue to bless you in the future! Be safe in these uncertain times! CIao!

  44. Age gap is not a problem i dont care! And who cares ! as long as your true and you love each other and you both respect each other im proud to have my man.
