Being in a relationship here is different! Consider that a HUGE understatement. He has a Credit Card and can write a cheque. High School, Tech School whatever Let that be your standard. DO NOT date men who work in tourism.

For all intents and purposes there are NO exceptions. This is very important and likely very different then what you are used to. Be careful who you associate with. If you befriend resort workers aka Sankies, then you are judged as like them. You can and will be set up to take a fall and you do not want to be in a Dominican jail. Your goal is to be accepted.
Dating a Dominican guy for the first time
You will never be one of them; you will always be an outsider but an accepted outsider. Do not make allowances; do not give them an inch because they will take a mile. Second infraction - cut him loose immediately. There are more in line wanting a gringa! They must contribute, maybe not the same as you as they likely cannot afford your lifestyle. Paying nothing makes him a kept man — is that really what you want??? Well heck, maybe it is….

Set ground rules around this very early. Otherwise they will all see you as the eternal money faucet. Dominican families and Dominicans in general tend to be very good about sharing resources - if someone gets sick or needs some financial help, they will often scrape up money from very extended parts of the family to try and pay the bill.
But set the rules around this early. We are talking about the upper class.
Set your sights on the middle class or the working class. See the comments above regarding class and race. Once you have proven you are serious about living here, you have developed a life here, have a good reputation — then you MIGHT gain access to other parts of society here. Most of the cases: He has nothing in common with them. He does not feel comfortable in nice restaurants. This is not what he is used to. Most likely he will make a macho attempt at proving he fits in and it can be quite embarrassing! Do not insist he learn English.
You are a guest in this country and it is in your best interest to learn Spanish. If he speaks your language, do not leave yourself in his hands to translate for you. This is a common ploy of Dominican men to keep their gringas in the dark. You need to understand what is being said around you! Do not believe everything he says. Do not trust him implicitly. Do not let go of your friendships. Do not stop associating with your gringa friends. They have been catered to by women most or all of their lives.
Do not get him accustomed to you picking up after him or being at his beck and call. Hire other locals to do it for you! OR let him do the hiring! There is a very evident double standard, well maybe a triple standard. Men can do what they want and they are men. You however will be labelled a SLUT.
Either learn to be very. Gringas going from man to man are labelled. There is no hiding here! No one on here can tell you one way or the other if this relationship is going to work out. Because then you end up wondering if he just wants sex or is really into you. I sense that is where your head might be at right now with all your questions. Do you even know if he has anither relationship already?
Who he lives with? If im sleeping w a man I also jeed to be meeting his family by that time. I felt butterflies, I like a stomachache all day after we made out, felt anxious all day, well, a mess. I have to say was the best kiss I ever got from a guy not knowing what was in store for me.

Like, he keeps me on my toes. Ok, I was born in Cuba. Our history is also similar. The point being we are very much alike, and from that I can tell you our men are NOT all passionate and sexual per se. With any man, being too available is a turn off. There are no rules, other than not turning to focus your entire life on a new guy.
One in three times when he asks me out or calls me, I might or might not make up a excuse for not carrying on. In a nice way of course. Good luck and happy for you!

It puts asmile on my facewhen i read your blogs. Thanks Kelli and congrats on being married for 12 years! I should have mentioned ahora as opposed to ahora mismo but they are all whenever lol. You learn that time doesn't exist really! The book will include lots of this and lots of the dark side too I am afraid.
There are two sides to the coin lol! Should be out by the end of the year all being well.
Dating a Dominican American Man/ Interested and/ or Sexual? I need a mans advice
That can certainly be confusing! You really need to learn "dominican man speak"! You definitely do Sami, and it is all sorts of things not only time. One of the worst is that they will tell you what you want to hear, not necessarily the truth! Thank you for this post! It's funny, the more I learn of Dominican man, the more I realize that it's true. I think it is useful to me! It's funny to see it from a different angle. It becomes second nature when you grow up with a Dominican father, brothers, and uncles. But it never stops being a little bit annoying though.
But you got to love them. And yes is annoying at first but now it makes me laugh as I understand! So in other words, regarding Dominican men not really saying what they mean is that Dominican men are like women of any nationality.
