The simplest way to check: hand her a piece of mamon and see what she does with it. Nowhere near a bakery? Spot these signs below! This may save you from future sakit ng ulo—unless you’re into this kind of thing? If you are, then pabebe pa more!
SHE SPEAKS WITH THE VOICE OF A FOUR-YEAR-OLD.
Equal parts whiny, cute, and sing-song-y, your Pabebe Girl knows exactly how to say something to achieve maximum “cuteness.” All the better to manipulate you with!
SHE HAS PERFECTED THE BEBE GIRL POUT.
From bibe face to pabebe face! Pabebe Girls are bringing the duck face back in a big way with their sad eyes and perfectly downturned mouth. If half your girl’s selfies look like this, then you’ve got yourself a pabebe. Plus points if she’s wearing those scary, doll-eye contact lenses that make her look like a santo.
SHE IS UNSTOPPABLE ONCE SHE MAKES UP HER MIND.
If her eyes bore right through yours in a stare not unlike Natalie Portman’s in Black Swan and she spits out “Wala kang pake kung pabebe ako sa video ko!” the next time you ask her to stop posting videos of herself acting like a child on Facebook, congratulations, you’ve got a palaban na pabebe.
Just. step. away.

SHE CAN GO FROM SWEET TO SCARY IN FIVE SECONDS FLAT.
From sweetly cajoling you to perhaps buying her a new camera for her videos to suddenly bobbing her head and yelling at you like some tough chick from the ‘hood (“Wala kang karapatan kasi nanonood ka lang!”) your pabebe girl’s got the whole spectrum of crazy-ass emotion covered.
SHE SUDDENLY HAS AN AVERSION TO EYEBROWS.
Girls spend a LOT of time on their eyebrows—they’re practically told they are not human without a perfect set. So for her to suddenly not mind not having a pair when she faces the world is a really big sign that your woman has gone over to the pabebe side.
They're practically the anti-Delevingne:
