Panama dating culture
But if you’re going on a date, Panamanians would hope that you’d dress accordingly.
“I went on a date one time and this guy showed up in shorts, sneakers, and a T-shirt. One of the biggest turn offs for Panamanian women especially, but it also applies to Panamanian men, is a date who doesn’t dance. If you’re young, you’ll probably end up in a nightclub (still called discos here) with reggaeton, rap, and techno.
For those people, this article might not provide much need-to-know info, but I think, in many ways they could still benefit from this, because many of the topics I’ll discuss in this article have to do with how we conduct ourselves in public.
Life in Panama is different, and by acting the way we did back home, we can sometimes ostracize ourselves.
You don’t go to South Beach in Miami and find the youngest blond with the biggest boobs in a string bikini, because you want to settle down and have a loving relationship, come on.
And chances are, this bombshell doesn’t have her sights set on a 70-year-old man.
So you also don’t go to Panama, hit the casinos, and find the youngest, hottest, guy or gal with the tightest body.
You have to look deeper than that if you want to find a good man or woman in Panama, just like anyplace else. These are all interracial couples (sounds weird to call it that), Panamanians who’ve met and have fallen in love with someone from a foreign country. These are people who are in committed relationships.
Someone wrote that they’ve never seen anyone put ketchup on food here in Panama and wondered where I’m getting my info. Before breaking down this list of 10 things you should know, I think it’s important to say that I know what a lot of people are expecting me to add to the list.
Is it worth it to take a chance at finding love in a foreign country? So what’s different about dating someone from Panama? A lot of people move to Panama with a spouse, making them part of an adventurous couple ready to settle down in this Central American wonderland.
Well, you can’t fall in love without putting yourself out there and playing the dating game, whether it be in the physical world or in the online arena.
And as always, this doesn’t pertain to every single Panamanian or gringo or other foreigner, but it does apply to quite a few of them, lol. If your life back home was anything like mine (I wore a suit 5 days a week), you’re loving being able to throw on shorts, a tank top, and a pair of flip flops.
And that’s fine if you’re just lounging around your home, chilling out in a hammock, or running in to the supermarket real quick to pick up some eggs.
