Relationship tips

A new life a new love. I have seen many foreign men and women in Europe, the Philippines, and Mexico in search of true love.  I have spoken to many who succeeded in finding love, and I have spoken many who were left alone, broken-hearted and even robbed of their money and homes. I have had so-called  “cross-cultural relationships” and even a long-distance relationship,  myself.

There are different categories, for those that look for specific international dating advice: 

Each article comes with “tags” underneath the article that will lead to more specific articles in the category. 

The articles below are all articles, not split up in a category but shown by publication date.

All the articles are written from experience, talks with others and from the knowledge from my education and work as a coach.

Remember: Dating is just a meeting between two people!
