The ugly and sad reality is, this so-called cultural prostitution does exist in the country and has become such a pervasive social custom that it has evolved into a cultural signifier for the country and marked Filipinas with a social stigma in the international community, particularly in the online dating industry. Another reality, however, is that it is but a sub-culture among many other sub-cultures in the country. The fact that Filipinas who belong in this sub-culture display very aggressive behaviors to attain their goals, combined with the fact that other Filipinas in other sub-cultures try to avoid being grouped together with their ill-behaved sisters, only solidify their characterization of the Filipina stereotype.

They say desperate times call for desperate measures. I have always understood this to mean that one is left no other choice but to engage in acts that are uncharacteristic of the person and that go against his/her morals and principles, sometimes even against society's norms and laws. When it is the former, the person often does not cause hurt to anybody else but himself/herself; when it is the latter, it is also often marked by complete disrespect and a lack of consideration for other people.

We take a lot of pride here on CLM/ALM in introducing Achelle Vinzons to the blogs. To have such an intelligent and educated Filipina here blogging for us is a real coupe in our opinion. What Achelle has to offer us all, our members especially, is a chance to learn about the real majority of Filipinas, not the minority who have overwhelmed many Asian dating sites and given Filipinas generally an undeserved bad name. Achelle has been given as free a reign as any of our bloggers, and her opinions as expressed in her blogs are her own, not dictated by us. Here then is Achelle Verzons, a great new blogger: Read more…

We have briefly contemplated some of the comments and suggestions made in the two earlier blogs on this subject. To be perfectly frank, the contemplation lasted for about 5 minutes, because here in the background the reaction was unanimous and took little thought at all. Here at CLM/ALM we are not interested in expanding our horizons beyond what we are and always have been, dating sites committed to offering genuine and sincere Chinese and Asian women and genuine and sincere Western men who are seeking life partnerships with each other a safe, secure and enjoyable platform on which to meet, online date and hopefully find real love.

As usual with any discussion about what direction the websites should go on any given controversial issue, there was a mixed bag of comments regarding whether or not we should allow members seeking extraordinary types of “heterosexual” long term relationships, such as a concubine style relationship or a threesome style relationship, to register on CLM/ALM. And, if allowed to register, then should they be allowed to publicize on their profiles their unusual preferences, or to only communicate them privately. Clearly we are sites intended to provide Chinese dating or Asian dating to heterosexuals seeking long term relationships of the life partner or marriage variety. Read more…

Sometimes, sitting on the tropical beach, you may hear the call of the sea. You might actually find yourself thinking…”I wonder what’s under those beautiful waves.” Stop! Read more…

Recently, long time member “HistGuy” posted a Forum thread entitled “I Miss The Old CLM”. I welcome you to give it a read, along with the comments (especially mine), and then return here for further discussion. In his forum thread HistGuy basically indicates that he feels CLM has become less friendly and the blogs have stopped being helpful and are no longer about seriously seeking a life partner. You’ll see from my first comment on his thread that I take some offence at his approach in the thread, but on second thought I believe that HistGuy’s concerns, regardless of whether I agree with his approach, deserve some serious consideration.

The world economic meltdown is old news! The World Elite (of which you are, sadly, not a part) is up to even greater mischief! The World Elite doesn’t want you to read my new comic novel about Southeast Asia! It’s called “String Theory-the Novel”; and not, (in all modesty), since the Bible has there been anything like it.

Tell me, since when did being well dressed score more points than being good looking? Maybe I spend too much time in the gym and not enough time choosing the right brand of socks? Read more…

I seem to have struck a nerve with my little story of the traveler who left his passport behind. Well, a lot of things can go wrong, when you travel in Asia, or anywhere else for that matter. I don’t mean losing your little Moleskine journal in which you wrote lonely, self pitying essays about how you lost …oh; wait a minute that was me. Read more…
