In a country where English is so widely used and learning it is mandatory, what does that say about girls who can barely write in it? I made the mistake of trying to date one girl who could only send illiterate one-syllable word texts, and most of our “date” consisted of me pantomiming with my arms hoping and praying something would penetrate her thick skull.She was pretty cute, but the language barrier was simply too big to cross.

As you’d expect from a second-world country, the Philippines lacks many of the labor protections that Americans take for granted.
When it comes to girls you date who have jobs (particularly teenage girls), most of them are working twelve hours a day, six days a week.
For example, as I found out the hard way, Filipinos don’t say “o” in place of “zero” in spoken English when it comes to long numbers (ex: if you read off “103” as “one oh three,” many Filipinos will have no clue what you’re talking about; you have to say “one three” or “one hundred and three”).
While most of the girls I’ve known send typo-filled English texts, I can understand them easily, and we can have conversations where I display my wit and wisdom. Attempting to woo them over a cup of coffee will be torturous because they won’t understand you say.
Not only does this indicate that she has a low resilience for pain and struggle, it’s only a matter of time before she starts hitting you up for money.
