Dating a man more than twice my age
If you turn to the world of online dating, it’s easy to find Latinas searching for wealthy men, Russian mail order brides, Asian seductresses, and American escorts all looking for a buck.It happens everywhere and definitely isn’t unique to Panama. Ladies are screwed over by young men trying to sleep their way to the top, all the time, and gay men and women encounter this situation too. If you’re an older, single guy here in Panama, trying to pick up a 20-something sex kitten, you have to know what you’re setting yourself up for.Now, for single people moving to Panama, and maybe even some Panamanians in the dating game, I hope this article gives you some new insight on the mixing and mingling world of love and new friendships.Now, before someone writes in saying, “Wait a minute, Chris. What would you know about dating in this day and age? I have been married to my Panamanian wife, Marlene, for a long time.Just like when I wrote my 10 Things You’ll Hate About Panama article, which you can read HERE if you missed it, and in my 15 Quirky Things About Panama, which you can read HERE, I’m sure I’ll have people write in saying they’ve never seen or heard of such things and that I’m full of it.Someone wrote that they’ve never seen anyone put ketchup on food here in Panama and wondered where I’m getting my info. Before breaking down this list of 10 things you should know, I think it’s important to say that I know what a lot of people are expecting me to add to the list.
Unfortunately, in this day and age, it’s the haves and the have-nots.
But if you’re going on a date, Panamanians would hope that you’d dress accordingly.
“I went on a date one time and this guy showed up in shorts, sneakers, and a T-shirt. One of the biggest turn offs for Panamanian women especially, but it also applies to Panamanian men, is a date who doesn’t dance. If you’re young, you’ll probably end up in a nightclub (still called discos here) with reggaeton, rap, and techno.
These are in no specific order, and as always, I don’t aim to upset anyone, not Panamanian and not readers from any other country.
I love Panama and its people, so in no way is this meant to insult anyone.
