Going from EWR (Newark Airport, New Jersey) to Manila, Philippines (04/28/22). From Manila to dumaguete(04/29/22). Wouldn't mind a travel companion and if we hit it off we can share a villa/suite. I'm going to meet my gf for the first time. I get a long better with woman but I'm open to any partner in travel!

I personally would not visit a new girlfriend for the first time in the company of another lady! (If you do - never mention this to your gf. Never, ever!) My opinion is that this is not something you want to come between you and gf forever!

Instead sharing the cost of a villa or suite in a hotel there are probably cheaper hotels available.

I have been to the P.I. a few times. Early on as a young man in the military and later on as a retiree. When you sort of advertise that you are wealthy you could attract the sort of people who will relieve you of your money. Always think safety first.

The US Embassy website should have some up to date information for travel and safety. This virus thing has messed up a lot of things for normal travel. Things could change for the better or get worse.

I would not purchase any flights that cannot be refunded or changed if things get worse.

Good luck.
