Living in Cuenca , Personal Ramblings So you want to date the locals? Good for you to courageously venture outside the bounds of gringolandia.
Ideally, that would be a beautiful thing. You prove that love has no borders or nationality. But be warned its pretty bad in terms of no one actually writes anything in their profile, and people wrote the lamest messages ever hola podemos ser amigos? Not sure if its because of this, but a lot of people have told me and I agree that on average the women here are more attractive than the men.
Watch out for tiburones Tiburones is the Ecuador term for gringo-hunter. My advice, for men…. By US standards, Ecuador dating etiquette is like a bad romance novel. I have to contain myself not to bust up laughing because it conjures too many corny images of Leonardo Dicaprio, and because the song is so out of date, but everyone else is enthralled by what a beautiful, romantic song it is.
My offering is a sweet kiss and a small flower waiting to arrive deep in your heart, like a secret that I tell to the moon and hidden by the sun.
You can see me as an angel that wants to give you wings to fly, like a man who wants to rob your heart or maybe just a a simple friend who wants to give you friendship.
From today on, I will be your light and your darkness, I will be your laughter or your tears perhaps, your thoughts and your actions I do not know. I will simply be what you desire. My feelings are pure, my heart is clean, I only want to tell you that I am alive. One word I tell you I thought I dedicate to you. With affection, from an angel who only wants to be your friend and get to know you better.
Be warned your date could involve sitting around house watching tv with 3 uncles, 2 cousins, brothers, brothers wives, their 2 kids… You get the picture? People get married and start popping them out sooner.
