Update: Ciudad Juarez Round 2

Postby MattHanson1990 » Wed Mar 25, 2015 3:57 am

Hey guys, I'm already back in Ciudad Juarez, and right after I crossed the border from El Paso, I approached a group of beautiful women and started a conversation with them in Spanish. It felt SO natural, and the girls even giggled. Wow!

Unfortunately it was short since I had to check in at Hostal 697, the hostel I'm staying at, but the bottom line is that women are so easy to approach and start conversations in Ciudad Juarez; I would've had no chance if they were Americanized.

1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Tomorrow I'm going to the Benito Juarez plaza at around midday or the afternoon after meeting up with a friend in El Paso.

Ciudad Juarez Round 2

Postby MattHanson1990 » Thu Mar 26, 2015 2:45 am

Day 2: After meeting with my friend in El Paso, I crossed back into Mexico and rested in the hostel for about an hour. Then I headed towards the Benito Juarez Plaza but ran into the woman whose niece has a crush on me. And then her niece came out and we started talking again. Again she asked if I had a girlfriend and I told her no. But then we start having lively conversations in Spanish, and she asked me how old I was. I told her I was 24 going on 25. Later I was about to have my first kiss, but I got nervous as I never kissed a girl ever in my life. I never thought I would get nervous around a foreign woman, but alas it happened; however, I'm still going on a date with her tomorrow morning in the Benito Juarez plaza, and her aunt is going to tell her that I got nervous only because I never kissed a girl. But she and I will kiss tomorrow on our date. Later that evening, I went over to Avenida 16 de Septiembre after seeing the plaza being nearly empty again, and I cold-approached gorgeous young women, starting conversations with them in Spanish; and they were giggling the whole time. Boy that reminded me of yesterday when I approached beautiful women just as I crossed the border.

Ciudad Juarez Round 2

Postby MattHanson1990 » Fri Mar 27, 2015 1:51 pm

Day 3: I was supposed to take the petite woman on a date in the Benito Juarez plaza but found out she and her cousin were in a car accident the previous night. She wasn't injured but in shock, but her cousin broke her ribs and had a hard time moving. And I had to help her move, especially when getting up and down steps. So I did get to spend time with their family. Then I headed over to Avenida 16 de Septiembre but didn't chat up girls this time. So I rested in the hostel for an hour before I headed to El Paso to hang out with my friends in the InterVarsity chapter at UTEP. I mentioned my situation to the Mexian girls about the previous day when I got nervous around the petite woman when she tried to kiss me. With one Mexican girl, I briefly compared girls in El Paso to girls elsewhere in the US, but it didn't feel taboo. She actually agreed with me about El Paso women being nowhere near as jaded and stuck up as girls anywhere else in America. She also agreed with me when I mentioned El Paso being the least Americanized city in the US and that El Paso's culture is predominantly Mexican. I also told her how I felt when the petite woman tried to kiss me, and her advice was to take things slowly. A black girl who was born in Panama but moved to the US said "Be careful because she likely wants to use you for US citizenship". A couple other Mexican girls told me the possible red flags about her wanting to use me, but they said to let her know how I feel. Now that one Mexican girl I hit it off with in November said that I should find out if she (the petite girl) has qualities I'm looking for, such as having a relationship with God. Anyways, shortly after returning from El Paso, I FINALLY got my first kiss...WOW. This is truly the trip of a lifetime. I also realized that I actually misspoke when I mentioned my situation to the Mexican girls in El Paso.

I got it from that petite woman who lives down the street about a couple blocks down from the hostel.

Ciudad Juarez Round 2 Day 4

Postby MattHanson1990 » Sat Mar 28, 2015 4:40 am

Day 4: The petite woman and I go on our first date to the Benito Juarez plaza. But since no one can babysit her kids, they came along. Before we went to the park, we spent a few minutes or so in her house. And then we went. I was concerned for their safety, especially when we crossed Avenida 16 de Septiembre. Afterwards we hung out outside the house for a couple of hours almost...and she and I shared our second kiss.
