Talking Loudly While Having a Conversation It may sound like we’re yelling all the time, but Dominicans just happen to talk really loud.This happens even more so if they''re really passionate about something.Women come here and get seduced by the island mentality, the Hollywood / Harlequin romance dream. He is someone who works in a field that gives him access to tourists – hotel worker, taxi driver, bartender etc etc etc But it can also be a lawyer, bank teller etc. He will then use that access to appeal to your need for romance, your need to be wanted, your need to experience the “dream” to separate you from your common sense, your wallet and in some cases your future. Often we wonder if women exchange their brain cells on the plane for an extra dose of hormones! There are tales of professionals – bank executives with master’s degrees falling for this. OF course that is not actually true – but, for you, the tourist – IT IS TRUE!!!!!!It is not just the needy – the stereotyped older, larger, less attractive woman but also the young or middle aged, beautiful, slim, highly educated women who get conned!!! The only thing you will be guilty of is bad judgement when things start to stare you in the face.
Unfortunately those of us who live here and hand out the hard to hear advice know it is true! He, who has access to hundreds of tourists every single week – will not fall in love with YOU in one week or two weeks.But, don’t count on it; it really isn’t all that likely. Most likely he will make a macho attempt at proving he fits in and it can be quite embarrassing! If he speaks your language, do not leave yourself in his hands to translate for you. **** When socializing with your Dominican boyfriend remember where he belongs in society. This is a common ploy of Dominican men to keep their gringas in the dark. The first time an American meets a Dominican, they may find themselves feeling a little confused by some of their actions.Although, we may not find any of these things to be super out of the ordinary, others might disagree.
Most of the cases: he will be very uncomfortable around your gringo / gringa friends. You need to understand what is being said around you!
