    My girlfriend’s family doesn’t approve of our online relationship

    I met my Filipina girlfriend online through a dating site called loveme. We got along really quickly and we’ve been communicating for about a year and a half now. After all the time we spent together via video calls and chat, we figured it was time to see each other. I decided to visit her in the Philippines.

    My problem is that her family are quite traditional in all forms –including romance. They don’t really approve of our online relationship since we live thousands of miles away from each other. I’ve deeply fallen in love with this woman and I’m confident that she feels the same way. Another problem with her family that they’ve mentioned is our age gap. I’m too old for her and they are concerned about how things would turn out in our relationship.

    I want to prove that I am worthy as a partner and can genuinely love her and her family. I initially planned to take them out and show them how I truly am when I visit my girlfriend and her family. I’m so nervous about the whole situatio

    There’s a silver lining here- this family does not appear to view you as a cash cow. If that’s the case, trying to wine and dine them won’t be effective.
    Have you talked to your girlfriend about this and asked her how you can win them over? It’s good that you have the chance to meet them in person and make a good impression. I would advise you to be genuine, i.e., simply be yourself and show them that you respect her and them- be sure to ask her father for his approval to marry her. Also, show an interest in their country and customs.
