Celine Beau Selga became a viral sensation after sharing on Female Network the differences she observed between dating a Filipino and a foreigner.
According to Celine, she used to think that a Filipino is a better match for her until she experienced dating a American-Italian man.
“I have never pictured myself being in a relationship with a foreign man because of my belief that staying in a relationship with Filipino men would be safer and better. Well, I think I have proven myself wrong,” Celine wrote.
She then narrated how their roads crossed: they met each other in Manila while he was traveling alone and volunteering to provide help for the typhoon Yolanda victims.
After they foreigner left the Philippines, the two of them continued to communicate with each other through Facebook and they have been together as boyfriend and girlfriend for over a year already despite the great distance between each other.

Celine also talked about the prejudice of some people to Filipinas who date foreign men.
“Getting judging looks from your fellow Filipinos always happen. People think that you're in it for the golden ticket to be in the other country or to live the rich life. Those things don't appeal to me. I have a stable job as a healthcare provider and even had offers to work outside the Philippines,” she explained.
As for their difference in culture, Celine said that it has helped both of them to learn, respect and appreciate each other more without sacrificing what makes each of them unique.
She also wrote about the difficulties of having a language barrier.
“There is also the slightest language barrier issue where you just scratch your head when you can't find the words to say. Ugh! During big fights, it’s kind of hard to express yourself figuring and filtering your thoughts—not to mention the nosebleed I get when overwhelmed,” Celine shared.
But because of these issues, the two of them have developed more patience and understanding.
