Tagalog Love and Dating Expressions

People who plan on dating, forming relationships or even just spending a good amount of time in the Tagalog love and dating expressions is a sweet and thoughtful way to show your new Filipina that you think highly enough of her to take the time and study those Tagalog love phrases.
Philippines will find it wise to pick up some of the local dialect. Knowing some

 Filipino Dialects

Tagalog is the National language and is spoken by a lot of Pilipinos but not by everyone. Outside of the Manila area you will find that there are many different dialects spoken and sometimes the residents of one province doesn't know even Tagalog all that well. This is because many Provincial areas speak their own.

A real word of warning though, other than Tagalog, it will be hard to find much in the way of actual printed books to study. For example, you would find it hard to find any books on learning Visayan and a best bet is to check the local tourism office for a booklet of phrases or the college and ask for language transcripts.

Cebuano is one of the other most common languages spoken in the Philippines and Cebu is one of the larger metro areas. When planning a visit to the Cebu area, you will be able to find some Cebuano to English dictionaries and I remember there used to be a few smaller books on Cebuano as well. An internet search is helpful to get primers because there is at least Tagalog and Cebuano online.

Tagalog Love and Dating Expressions

Once you meet a sweet Philippines girl you can take the time to learn some Tagalog love and dating phrases. While to some people here it won't mean much, to others it does mean something and is worth doing. Really worth it if you are going to stay here awhile.

This is just a partial list of some basic Tagalog love and dating expressions and we will be adding more in the future. Just remember to be kind and thoughtful to distinguish yourself from the other visitors to the country who may not be so.

Practice beforehand and make sure to learn at least 2 love phrases a day and in no time you will be able to converse in your Filipina's language. Doing this will make your time here a lot more enjoyable and less confusing. You won't be so much in the dark as to what is going on in the surroundings and you should be able to communicate with Philippines girls much easier.

You will realize if you plan on staying for awhile just how much of a good idea it is to start learning right away.

 Remember to check back as we will be adding more language primers.
