Like the worst stereotype of foreign men who come to the Philippines, Dan treated native women as accessories to the lives they envisioned for themselves.But Leonor nurtured ambitions of her own, and she struggled with the fact that Dan had no respect for her desires.

Leonor was hopeful he might eventually whisk her off to a new life in America.In the 15 years since Leonor and Dan met online, some things haven’t changed.Men are still seeking out beautiful women who would be “out of their league” if they weren’t poor, and Filipinas are still looking for men who can provide for them and take them to the more prosperous West.She registered on Filipino and, over the last year and a half, has corresponded with several suitors.

Unlike the first time, when she got together with the first viable man who came along, she vetted the men she met through their Facebook accounts, chatted with them on Viber and Whats App, and then eventually got on Skype with the ones she felt most serious about.

When she decided to try online dating again, a month after she and Dan separated, Leonor was determined to make a wiser choice.
