    Derfish, At least she didn’t leave dead fish under door....(no pun intended) I find the maids no different then your girlfriend in attitude department and thought process ..they both wash your underwear and feel entitled in the end.

    Then she left me a couple of weeks later, took my bank card and liberated $150 from my US account. But feeding her and giving her a place to live wasn't enuff. She had to grab and run, now I hear she's broke and wants to come back. She cannot seem to understand why not! I told her that chicas are like buses, one goes and another will be along in 20 minutes!
    So it is like the old proverb about the goose that laid golden eggs, until the farmer butchered her to find where they were coming from. No more golden eggs.
    Could have lived forever (or until I was gone) with me, but no had to kill the source.
    Same old same old!
    Did you meet her in Sosua or Boca Chica?

    In the DR the term “good girl” tends to be an oxymoron.

    Obeonekanobi has not earned his stripes yet.
    Hopefully he can land a girl (good or bad), that has enough respect to not ask for money or at least wait until she truly believes she deserves it, (after meeting Dominican style). Don’t give up grasshopper......

    Me: "Good morning"
    "My phone is broke I need it fixed so I can talk to you"
    "How much is it to be fixed" ?
    "50 bucks"
    "Nah, I pass I haven't even got to the island and your in my pockets. Plus I already give you 30. "
    "Im single and got kids life its hard and not having a phone is not safe."
    "I give you 30 again but don't ask again. im already paying for bus your ticket to come up to puerta plata in march, giving your mom 80 bucks to watch your kids and buying you a new iphone."
    ****Send her the 30 bucks by western***.
    " Did you get money?"
    "yes, thanks for nothing"
    **blocks me**
    This is after 3 months of talking daily, showing me pictures of the countryside. Me teaching her English and she teaching me Spanish. I really like her she was bilingual , college educated and had a nice place.
    Thanks for nothing. You were a resource to be used. And when it proved too difficult to use you she discarded you. Because in the mind of a Dominican woman "It is better to have nothing at all than to not get exactly what you want."

We all bring our excess baggage from wherever we come from to the DR in search of a better life whatever that is for us. What exactly are we expecting from those we partner up with and more importantly is, do they understand what we expect from them? Equally important is what do we really know about them before we partner up and are we willing to explore in detail what kind of person they are, or do we just "go for it" and take the learn as we go plan?

    My opinion is that most just go for it and hope for the best. How many people that hook up with a Dominican go through the same rituals that they would in the country that they come from getting to know a person before taking the plunge. I think that many of us are unwilling or sometimes unable to go through the getting to know them process and more times then not just dive right in. There is nothing wrong with doing this as long as you understand the risks and have both eyes wide open understanding how the relationship will probably turn out and here's where the problem lies.. When a ST relationship goes south, why is it so hard to admit that we were wrong, that the "love" we were searching for is not there, and we're being used as an ATM? Instead, many move onto the next level of "trying to make it work". For these poor souls, that's when things in their lives go from bad to worse in a hurry, and their dreams of "Life in Paradise" fall by the wayside..

    Maybe we need to change our perspective on what the expectations of a relationship are and move these expectations to be more in line to how Dominicans think they should go. We are visitors in their country and why should we expect them to conform to our beliefs? Maybe it's us that need to change our beliefs and conform more to their beliefs..

    Who knows.. Men are from Mars, and women are from Venus..
    Ball that line of thinking up into as big as you can make it the 86 that with much emphasis.
    We should NOT lower our expectations at all. Cultural adaptation taught us to adapt, compromise and sacrifice then rationalize. That is what gives you the advantage. Their culture respects none of that. Which constantly puts them at the dis-advantage, the losing hand. Where in the world do they adapt themselves to lend comfort to the Losing Hand? And in the long run what good would that do?

    Who withdrawals 7,875 from an RD ATM device?
    5,000 ($95.23) or 10,000 ($190.47) would be a more believable story.
    Damn man. She took out 8000 pesos and there was a 150 peso transaction fee.
