So if you fell for it, you were only doing what was natural and right in the world. Yea, yea, your friends are asking you how that works, exactly? You know with the Trump thing and the embargo thing and the no-internet thing and the only speak Spanish thing. In addition, the author understands this blog post is general as fuck.
Every individual is different. These are just common questions and situations that have been submitted to the blog and are being addressed all at one time. Well, getting a marriage proposal is completely normal in Cuba. And we love being extra, right? Your bf will need to show their identification card at check-in. Condoms are practically free, by the way. Cubans Are Horny Cheaters. But those Tinder dates are the same exact thing, without the suavamente.
And if you do find out, you should act accordingly to how you would treat cheating in your home country. With the absence of a strong presence of Catholicism, Cubans are, for the most part, sexually free and not conservative about sex at all.
Communicating in Cuba is the most difficult thing. Most of the time the video chat is frozen and I see his face in this ugly cute frozen motion and have to hang up and call again.
Let me tell you, that shit gets irritating. If this happens, you can always top up his cell phone. Sometimes they have specials for international calling. Just sign up for the email. It took me 8 months of dating before I topped him up for the first time. I needed him to hustle for these phone calls until I felt secure enough to send money. Then when I get to Cuba, he pays me back. After this experience, though, let a man not text me back. He will be dead to me. You have to send him an invitation.
Many young men have a visa to travel and it is not as difficult as it seems. Just a very long process. First he needs to get a passport, which takes about a month. The cost is CUC. Second he needs a visa, which is CUC a little extra to speed up the process if you pay off the guy and can get denied at anytime without a refund. I have no idea what documentation you need to provide, but you can check it on the US Cuban Embassy website. Unless he is a private business owner or a taxi driver, you will probably have to fund this entire process, which brings me to my next point.
This has been, admittedly, the hardest thing for me to overcome. Before dating my Cuban papi, I dated men who would send me money just because, and would definitely pay for my plane ticket, let alone dinner. For example, my Cuban papi will cook me dinner, wash my clothes by hand, grocery shop, pack my lunch, lay out my clothes for the day, and overly care about my mind, body, and soul.
With that said, I definitely use all of his money before using mine. So he will save up all of his money for three months and give it all to me, and I happily use them all. So our largest fights have been about me hanging out with guy friends, or even being alone with another man in a room.
They will probably be equally as nice. But you will find yourself having to bring back vitamins and coffee makers and perfume for the entire pueblo on every trip back.
More importantly, you are not responsible for supporting anyone. Do what you can, but ultimately, keep your needs a priority because they may not understand how hard you had to work to be able to bring those things. In Conclusion You should treat dating in Cuba like dating in your home country. There is always the possibility of someone being a shitty person. My Cuban papi is a constant reminder of what is truly important in life.
The enormous effort he puts in to make this relationship work is inspiring and unlike what any other man has ever done or has had to do for me.
Also, his naivete, though frustrating at times, is for the most part adorable. He has yet to be exposed to how shitty the world is and is so aware about taking care of the people around him and his community, something I feel is seriously lacking in the Western world.
It may not be worth it for you. If you have any suggestions for additional apps or services that you can use to communicate with your Cuban amor or have a Cuban amor love story, leave them in the comments below!
