    About me: My name is Teacher Gio to my students and Gio to my friends. I left the USA over 4 years ago to travel SE Asia and live a better life. Follow my journey as I travel around The Philippines reviewing different islands and cities.
    My channel: Reviewing different islands and cities in The Philippines as places to visit or live, condo and apartment reviews, dating tips, & how to travel and live inexpensively in The Philippines.

  2. Gio, i just read where Guam is offering a Covid vaccination program, started June 6, 2021 for American citizens living in SE Asian countries who want to be vaccinated, but dont want vaccinations offered in SE Asian countries. I read it today on a Guam website. Im ignorant on how to send a link. I did figure out how to send it to you privately.

  3. Life is what you make it…
    Philippines is number 1 for me and I’m 38 from UK.
    Its more fun in Philippines…
    One life , live it…
    Lifestyle, girls , people , islands 🌴👍

  4. Ok oddly enough one of the best takeaways for me from this video was learning about the ruins in Cebu. As soon as Paul mentioned that I googled it and immediately put a ‘want to go here’ pin in the map. So much to explore when I get there! Thanks Gio for the update/follow-up on this topic too.

  5. Gio,
    I think you and Paul it right on it, how do you tell the difference between a real conservative Filipina and one that claims to be one but the longer your around her , then you realize she’s not a real conservative Filipina.
    I really don’t like when you’re on a date and the girl is on her phone. I always take my phone out and shut it off right in front of my date to let her know, that she will have all my attention. I hope my date will also shut her phone off to.

  6. I’m over 60 and had no problem 40 and up when i was in the PH. now while waiting for “I shall return” i have no problem women asking me to be their BF and saying the will meet me at airport (already know that strategy). No shortage for me.

  7. I’am 68 and regard myself being in good shape, I keep up an exercise routine, for me it’s important not only for your health but for self esteem and confidence. At the moment I’am with a great Thai women who is 41 and we have a very close relationship. Been in Thailand since March last year I was going to travel to Philippines but this situation put a stop to that, so I’ve had to end my relationship with a Filipino, she understands, but in life we all have to adapt, going forward traveling is going to be a hassle, l think until everyone gets the jab!

  8. i chat girls there and have a florida fellow i chat with… in his 50s, handsome but heavy…. he is swamped… i have no issues meeting ladies online

  9. You guys nailed it! Philippines is really a land of opportunity with even more chances for love then you can imagine. I think the Old Dog is a great example of how a great relationship can be. What you have a lot more of in the Philippines is CHOICE! Learning the language would also open up a whole lot more.

  10. The Western mindset is hard to shake. Guys in their 40s and 50s living in the Philippines seem to have a hard time believing that a young Filipina could actually be attracted to a foreigner over the age of ______. Here in the USA, young women are attracted to men who make them laugh, are fun to be with, have a positive outlook on life, and are good to them. Some of these men are not necessarily the most handsome or youthful men on the planet. If the foreign guy is happy and his Filipina is happy, then it’s all good.

  11. Wish I was there!
    But, you both look so somber in parts.
    This is not a talk about war or famine. This is a talk about romance, sex, and love. It is a fun topic. hehe Please lighten up a bit more.
    -Nils

  12. The family values in American World Is Gone the respect is gone like you guys said family gatherings are huge in the Philippines ….. they respect their parents and grandparents…. that is gone in America

  13. Welcome back Paul good to see you feeling better brother :))
    Think “Sonic blue,” Said it best!
    Life is what you make it!
    Great Video to you both Gio and Paul thanks for sharing

  14. Plenty of common sense/wisdom here but I’d disagree on one detail in particular.
    I moved to CA before the pandemic and hope to travel to Phils ASAP but I must say my life in New York City was a very full life with more social outlets than I could handle. All-day bike rides at weekends, running club training runs and races in Central Park always available, social events around these activities/clubs, drinking buddy across the street at 5 minutes notice with favorite watering hole one block away, coffee shop casual chat over a coffee/bagel every morning around the corner.
    But I still look forward to widely exploring The Philippines (with GF) as soon as possible.

  15. If you’re 55 or younger, if you’re good looking.. YOU CAN EASILY find a good woman. If you are over 60 and if you are not good looking.. it’s MORE likely to have fake relationships from young woman who use you as their career. YOU have to be honest with yourself.

  16. You know it really reduces the quality of your videos when you have a pathetic Paul with you. His opinions always show sign of some desperate intellect input

  17. Good discussion… Young guys put too much value on their youth. Most women think a man’s value increases with age. Young guys spin it as sugar daddy because they are jealous. And the funny thing is that a man’s opinion on this subject will most likely change with his age.

  18. 60+ men seem to do better with 35+ Filipinas. Their relationships seem to do better too. I wouldn’t be in one with an under 40-year-old. Of course, that is just me. I believe a lot of 40+ women feel more secure with a 60+ man. I think of my GF as being young, where a guy in his 40-50 s would see her as an older Filipina, even if she is younger than him.

  19. Paul, good to see you moving forward with a little help from you friends. Since you mentioned it, I would like to find out about going for a Masters degree, in the Philippines.

  20. It depends on the guy if you are in good condition dating will not be a problem..I’m 71 and I okay… The girls don’t walk in front of me or behind me. They grab me by my left arm because they know I keep my money in my left pocket. (:0)

  21. Filipinas are the greatest actresses in the world and as long as you’re paying her bills she’ll act like she loves you😍Unfortunately things are that bad in the Philippines. I’ve seen 10/10 stunners with short, fat, bald westerners with big Santa Claus beards and on Facebook they’re going on and on about how great their boyfriend is😂It’s all about the $$ unfortunately. Spent the last 16 years going to and living in SEAsia and when I was in my 30’s I had a great time but now I recognise that I’m almost 50 and even though I’m in the best shape of my life I know that those early 20’s girls are going to be with me because of what I offer financially rather than my looks. It’s sad but that’s the way girls are. They all want to elevate their status though men.

  22. I’m 68 and I’ve found a unicorn.😁 She’s 50, never been married and no children and independent. It’s a LDR at the moment but I’ll get there one day soon.😊

  23. I was 69 when I arrived in the Philippines 5 years ago. During that time I’ve had 4 very attractive and exciting young gfs and I’m now with my 5th who I’m sure is the last.

    I work hard to stay in shape, no big belly, dress casually but well, and treat my gfs well.

    I see a lot of gross looking expats at the usual hangout who are very boorish and unkempt so I imagine it’s those types that end up alone.

  24. Some ladies in their forties are quite attractive. I am looking for a nice forty-something lady who is still working. I am 71. I don’t want someone in their twenties.

  25. I can tell you this: It’s not over! Most Filipinas are not superficial whatsoever. Yes, adjust your mindset. Don’t be an old fuddy-duddy. Get with it. Be a STUD!

  26. Hello, my friend. I can’t wait to go to the Philippines.When can I get there? I miss the Philippines only in Korea.
    Have a good night.

  27. just an observation Gio. I like your videos better when you either make them alone or with a tour guide. Paul is a bit of a downer. he seems always so angry at women and it comes across that way always when relationship topics come up. who cares if the guy’s fat or a penciled neck geek.. Paul you are no ARNOLD and far from buff . and for his information when you are over 50 do you really need a girl holding your hand all the time? I noticed in your videos that he and his gf came along and he seemed to Grab Mia’s hand and tow her along. In Buddhist countries when the woman walks behind a guy it’s a sign of Respect. not indifference. also in Thailand the woman sleeps with her head below the mans. also respect. again just an observation.

  28. Yes, I must agree with both gentlemen that in western countries social life is less or close to nothing at all…
    I like this kind of video concept on both of ur vlog…and u two are well groomed and healthy…I’m not flirting. This is just my observation in comparison to other foreign vloggers in the Philippines. And also explained the situation about dating and a second chance in life at a matured age…

  29. I think the social media thing is to stay connected. I doubt the average Filipino has a tv or cable. Which is a good thing. They actually talk to each other. We have lost that here in the States.

  30. Good discussion. There are a lot of little things that all add up to make a second chance possible. I think the sense of community in the Philippines is what I keep hearing from both of you. Additionally, in Asian culture people are taught to respect older people. In the West where you are mostly a commodity, older people unless rich are not given the time of day. That said I don’t think most westerners can adapt to Asian culture and this will make them uncomfortable and unhappy. Glad to see you are feeling better Paul.

  31. i am 67 my 2nd filipino 30 we work great my first fila wife was 37 i was 53 we lasted many ity so i divorced her i met m6y wife now shes my soul mate
    ears i have 1 son my mistake was bringing her new york after she with friends who were mostly divorced and living at the ‘saratoa casino ,i got sick of

  32. My suggestion, find a few friends, like real friends, ideally some of them should be local. You’ll learn much more if you know a few locals. Should not just be about girls

  33. Hey Gio so Green Lanes is going to start there on 1 Jul however it appears the US didn’t make the first list of international travelers

  34. Well voiced video on this subject, you mentioned University as an option for ex-pats, expensive though ? I am teaching english ( as you were Gio ), still are ? and yes the Filipeno lives in the moment , and this helps you relax and also give of your best, many childrens bday parties I have been too ! good reason to entertain their parents friends and relations ! and some mid week too ! definitely a fresh experience re their social gatherings, I loved the good vibes friendly banter, families and the singing and the Filipeno food !

  35. jenn terri just posted video on green lane open now BUT she not sure if it applies to usa tourist n expats – maybe u make ur video on it? in ur time thx

  36. Gio, I’ve been so busy with stuff here in the US. … no time for youtube. where are you know? I see a video about a condo, did you buy one? what city? How’s the relationships, anything serious?

  37. I think you hit on the biggest red flag with the phone addiction. Even if you insist on no phone except for certain times they are always obsessed with the phone. They will never love you as much as the phone.

  38. It may not be great for men over 60 much longer. Once the PH opens up there will likely be an influx of younger men that can work remotely or own an online business thanks to pandemic. So the Filipina would likely be more attracted to the 30-40 year old with more money than the average pension drawing 65 year old expat. So older guys move quickly once restrictions are over.

  39. I would love to know how your relationships with Mia and ging ended was it hard for you both to end it. Would be a good topic on how to end it gracefully

  40. I have friends 60 and 65 both met women in late thirties early forties that worked well for them, more mature and happy to love again, girls on phones at dinner etc, I’d tell them pls put the phone down or I’m out of here

  41. This is my 2nd chance at life!!
    My fiancée is 28 and I am 71…BUT I workout everyday and am in SHAPE!
    We have been together going on a year and our love for each other is growing!!

  42. Geo and Paul, I must say that your videos are onboard and a breath of fresh air❗❗❗ I like the clarity in your dialogue and your discussions I think that I’m not drawn toward expat groups because they complain about the traffic they complain about the pollution they complain about every damn thing and drink with such disrespectful behavior…..
    I was married for 11 years to a Filipina and brought her to America and it was a total Trainwreck so I got divorced from the narcissistic toxicity, my fifteen-year-old son and I are now in Bali on the little island because 3 months ago the Philippines wouldn’t open up even though we had our Philippine visas & passports 🤔🤔🤔
    So, we are here for a while until the pandemic gets a little bit more under control there (Cebu/Busay)
    I myself have been going there since 1994 I lived on three hectar on a beach in eastern Samar and I loved it and wrote for the Philippine newspapers and magazines 23 articles. Thinking next year my son and I will be coming back I don’t want to even entertain dating anyone than a Filipino. I know that there’s something there ~~~~ I adore and respect country culture the family I love the family bonding just as you’re saying and you know I’m looking forward to becoming part of a family again.

    Blessings to you both and once again I do appreciate so much for you putting this out it isn’t smoking mirrors it is precise it is truth good or bad it’s just what it is, Patrick

  43. Great video guys! The subject kinda wandered off a little bit. But that really spoke to me, because thats exactly how I feel. I haven’t even been to the Philippines yet, but I can see it. That everyone is closer. Here in the U.S. everyone is becoming more secluded, unfriendly, and quit frankly rude. The dating scene is atrocious! I cant wait for the Philippines to reopen. I’ll be coming as soon as possible ☺️

  44. It’s true that if you look healthy and active in your 60s and beyond you can attract a better class of woman. But looks can be decieving and many men that look the healthiest drop dead just like the obese out of shape guys.

  45. One thing I’ve taken from watching various expat in the Phils vids is that it’s refreshing transplanting to a Country that genuinely respects and admires men, whereas in the West, men, more and more, are being labeled “toxically masculine,” which is incredibly maligned and downright disrespectful.

  46. I just did the math, 2019 4.5% of the people who contracted TB in the Phillipines died. No mask mandate, no lock down. 2020 1.7% of the people in the Phillipines who contracted Covid-19 died, country in total lock down. as the truth becomes unveiled here in the United States, lockdown is not the answer. But guess what works? Fresh air and sunshine, something very abundant in the Phillipines. If I can figure this out, they should be able to.
