This is especially true among close friends and relatives.People also tend to stand closer than you might be used to, and to have more direct eye contact.Being from different cultures and speaking different languages, we have learnt a lot from each other.I thought I’d write a list of a few things I have learnt being married to my Chilean wife (however some of the points had to be deleted since they couldn’t actually be said in public but that’s another story…).I really dont know about this particular situation.Before I married my argentine wife when i was single I dated a beautiful Chilean girl, and a few times she bought me ice-cream but usually I paid.You might feel that your personal space is being invaded a little bit, but for people in Chile, this is just a sign of friendliness, closeness, and interest in what the other person is saying.Schedules tend to be laid-back, and in most informal situations, it is not considered rude to be late.
Chilean women are hopeless romantics and theres no such thing as casual dating.
Back in February, my friend Kyle posted the most offensive blog I’ve read thus far this year!
Actually, as you’ll see, it wasn’t really HER sentiments that offended but rather, the sentiments of random weirdos who contact her via her blog (unfortunately one of the pitfalls of blogging is that you’re “out there” in the cyber world and anyone, anywhere can contact you to say pretty much anything).
They fall in love quickly and its all out or nothing. I am not dating anyone, but I know of someone that is.
So be forewarned, they take dating much more seriously than we do. I also took the time to do some googling on the topic.
For those that don’t know me, I am from New Zealand and my wife is Chilean.
