True love. Is it worth it to take a chance at finding love in a foreign country? I did. And I just passed the year mark with Marlene. A lot of people move to Panama with a spouse, making them part of an adventurous couple ready to settle down in this Central American wonderland. Life in Panama is different, and by acting the way we did back home, we can sometimes ostracize ourselves. 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. What would you know about dating in this day and age?
I have been married to my Panamanian wife, Marlene, for a long time. However, both Marlene and I, have worked in Panama. I love Panama and its people, so in no way is this meant to insult anyone. This is Panama For Real.
It happens. 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. You want that sex kitten for a reason, and that sex kitten is going to get something out of it too. No games here. And there are plenty of people in Panama, and everywhere else, more than willing to date someone just because they think he or she has money.
So just be careful. You, as a foreigner, just need to get realistic with your searching. You have to look deeper than that if you want to find a good man or woman in Panama, just like anyplace else. My Canadian friend, Michael, just moved to Panama and had an unfortunate experience with dating.
Real people are out there. And the couples? So it can be done. These are people who are in committed relationships. Some of it might be a bit controversial. It might piss some people off, but none of this is fairytale. This is all info collected from single people out in the dating world. Dress Appropriately —.
This is probably the one complaint I hear from Panamanian friends. Now this is a pimped out way to dress for a date. I get it, trust me, I do. At least throw on a pair of jeans, some casual shoes, and a button up shirt or polo. And cologne or perfume is also greatly appreciated. You Might Meet The Parents —. Unlike in the U. This could mean well into their 30s. He courted me by constantly making me Panamanian derretidos. This is a very family oriented country. How does this apply to dating? Well, first, you might unexpectedly meet mom, and second, you might not get invited in at the end of the date, not if there are family members waiting inside.
Panama is huge on respect for the family. So make sure you keep that in mind. Dancing is a big part of Panamanian culture. The good news? It matters that you try. Now, I try to just get out on the dance floor and have a good time. And some women are the same. This applies to dating too. They were having a great time, dancing the night away to the live band. She turned the guy down and had to calm her boyfriend down, who was not surprisingly pissed. So, back to the dancing thing. My Spanish still stucks.
What better way to communicate and flirt a little than having your date help you with your language skills? Plus, after a couple glasses of wine, you might even find it a little easier to roll your Rs. I know people in the States and in other countries cheat on their spouses, but I never heard about it there the way I do here. So Panamanian women expect that. It allows you to chat with other people, I think anyplace in the world I text friends and family in the U. What does that mean? It means you might end up speaking to your date through text messaging over the phone instead of actually speaking.
It drives you crazy. Everyone, and I mean everyone from age 12 or younger to age 70 and up has a Smartphone and is constantly checking it. I mentioned on Facebook just the other day that I was shocked to see a girl on the back of a motorcycle, chatting away with both hands while the driver zigzagged through traffic.
That girl must really trust her thighs. I mean we all come here hoping to escape some of the stress and work-before-life mentality. Well, that relaxation carries into all parts of life here. I found this out when I threw my first big birthday bash. I worked at a call center and invited almost everyone in the building. I think the party started at 9pm or something like that. Why was mine so dead?
By 11pm my party was almost out of control. I had people on the back balcony, stuffed into both living rooms, and out in front of our house on the street. I tell you this because you need to know ahead of time that if you tell your date to be ready, or to meet you, at 8pm, expect them to be ready at 9. Push Buttons —. Just pull your car in, park, turn off the ignition seriously, people have been nervous and ended up dead from leaving their car running in the garageand push the button to close the garage door.
That als someone inside that you want a room. Prices differ, depending on the type of room you pay more for the fancier ones and the amount of time you want to use the room. The attendant will take your payment through a slot in the door and then you can enter.
Using Protection —. I have to be careful with this one, because it might upset people. This was the reply when talking to male and female coworkers, gay and straight. I met a guy one time that was dating one girl, sleeping with another girl, and had just hooked up with a 3rd random girl.
None of these 3 girls knew what was going on. Was he wearing a condom? Not with any of them. I was talking with Marlene about it, when planning to write this post, and she said the exact same thing, that she was blown away by the amount of people not wearing protection. These are young college kids and business professionals, young and older. Condom directions on our hotel nightstand in Las Tablas. You might be shocked to find out how many people are going at it completely naked. If so, fill us in in the comments section below.
