Default what side is the wedding finger on in the Philippines for a lady? - 05-15-2013, 15:10 | posts: 628

So I had met this girl and I noticed she from one of her photos that she sent me she has a ring on.....on what appears to be on the left side..its hard to tell...since a photo reverts an image sometimes from true life..but from the other photos i do not see a ring on her finger...I am unsure what to think..is it different there or is it universal everywhere, as being on the left hand beside the pinky finger...any thoughts?

Lol, not Thai man.




Could just be any ol' ring, on the finger it fits best on.
Left/Right could be whatever side she felt like putting it on in the morning.

Or maybe she's divorced.

Either way, if you're looking for a girl where you get to be first to take a dip, good luck with that.
To have a chance at that, she'd have to be [one or more of] (A) very young (B) Prude (C) Super churchy. None of which make for a good partner (both in sex and life in general) - unless you're into that*.
In any case, dead fish.

Since the majority of people in the Philippines are Catholic, it would be the left ring finger.

On the bright side, she could just be a psycho-clingy-GF type, LOL.

Might as well let her know if you do or don't want to meet.
If anything, just to be polite and not waste the girl's time/money on the trip.



If she were Indian/Paki or Arab (or similar) + conservative, then starting off with marriage talk would be no shock.
I met a few eastern girls in college where you don't even hang out/chat without other people around. You want personal time? Get married, you'll have plenty.




U.S. Filipina? (versus immigrant)

If so, she could be super-catholic+sheltered+clock-going-off.

If she is 'off the boat', then you can expect a different approach to life in general. Lots of places/areas where 'people don't just date around', where getting married is step 1, and people have all kinds of imaginations about family, etc. Really depends on the background.
Or she needs papers yesterday.


But you only chatted w/ her online for a few days. Let her know that you don't want to get into a heavy relationship, and you won't be right for each other. Problem solved.

When engaged the ring goes on the right finger. When married, the ring is worn on the left finger. Simple.

Don't bother.

Instead ask yourself this, are you really a pathetic/desperate loser that thinks dating someone from a 3rd world country will better your life?
