Where expat lovebirds roam
Log in. Jump to Latest Follow. Status Not open for further replies. ed May 23, I'm in my fifties, I live alone but I would like to have a partner.
Not necessarily to live with I'm pretty comfortable as I ambut to go out with. Now, here is how dating goes, at least for me. I set up one let's watch a movie, go to the movies, stuff like thatand, what usually happens is that the lady in question calls me around the time we are supposed to hook up to tell me that she can't make it. In happened three times in a row now, these ladies are obviously around my age, but always it was that the father just called and she HAD to go and see him, or that some cousins just called, they are on their way and she obviously has to stay home to attend to them, or mum isn't feeling well.

In none of the three cases I was under the impression that they were stalling me - in other words, they were telling the truth. If you're not one of them, you'll be relegated to the position of runners-up. Any of you folks care to share their experiences?
ed Jul 20, That is a little of an oxymoron in Mexican culture - especially more traditional culture.
A dating situation is usually all about taking the relationship somewhere, not just being long term buddies. But that's just a guess based on my experience. I remember that our Mexican friends started asking my new girlfriend and I about wedding plans only three days after we started dating. It shocked me at the time but since then I have come to see that that is just how the culture here views these things.
In our case we did wind up getting married three years later but after only three days of dating it kind of freaked me out to talk about marriage! But to our friends those questions were natural even at that early stage. ed Nov 8, Ennio said:.
Hi Mr GeorgGrey you have to remember that is a diferent culture you are dealing with now and older ladies here are old school and if they are single can be really shy and not used to be going out they feel out of their comfort zone so try to take it a little bit more smooth specially in the first dates she could be a little bit shy and may not feel comfortable being along with you just yet and try to get to her family and friends if you are really interested in that lady aks her to bring a or some friends in the first dates she will feel more comfortable and things should work better for you best of luck and let us know how its going for you later take care bye.
