    WOW, i find the complete opposite. The Dominicans i meet on a daily basis are a little stand offish but once they realize i am not just another ugly Americano they become some very friendly, helpful people.

    ..........maybe it is your deodorant?

    ´maybe the fact that you consider them to be all ignorant hateful beggars is reflected in YOUR attitude toward them. just like a dog can sense fear, people sense hatred and disgust. maybe they are just returning your medicine.

    Are you both foreigners?

    Is your wife Dominican and are you much older than her?

    I've never felt hatred from a Dominican for being a foreigner. I've been cheated on in stores or workshops but they do that to each other as well.

    Having another bad day, we see....

    Perhaps they may not terribly appreciate the sense that you feel that way?

    You know, even if you decide the entire country is not right for you (SD is just a small part of DR), there ARE another 200+ countries (including the one you are from) to explore. Just an option....

    OP where do hang out at?? It is not hate that your feeling, it is the lack of your understanding for the people and the culture. I have been here a long time and while I have had my moments, I have never felt "hated". Maybe like you the people you encounter are having a bad day....

    Dominicans are EXPERTS at BODY LANGUAGE... and so to them, you are giving off a weird Vibe...
    Its not your Face they are reading, its your body I have oberved this many times. especially how Vendors pounce on people who say " no, no Gracias, thank you bla bla bla " trying to walk away but still looking back, meanwhile I shake my head sideways just once, and the vendor will immediately stop approaching cuz they know its not gonna be a SALE..
    And then I have done the opposite when I am interested in negotiating on an item, and they pick up on it immediately and go into their Sales pitch. they know its a sale, way before I ever go for my wallet.

    Are you acting like you are going to be Mugged at any moment ? That could be viewed as offensive..
