Hello! New female here..

Post by yellowroses » April 26th, 2012, 10:31 pm

Hi everyone!

You're probably all scratching your heads as to why an American female is on this website, but I actually agree with a lot of the sentiments that have been shared on this site. Day to day, I have feminist propaganda shoved down my throat and am forced to listen to unintelligent dribble from my friends, so this site is like a breath of fresh air. I am currently frustrated with everything to do with the US right now (probably part of the reason I am spending my summer in latin america) and the asinine behavior of some of my friends, so I joined this site the second I found it. I hope you don't mind me poking my head around here.

Welcome. So how do you like Latin America? What do you do there? How do you make a living there? What's your favorite region of that continent?

I am going to the Dominican Republic with this program that helps with English and math education in schools located in poor areas. I have been raising money this past semester for my travel costs, donation funds, and a small amount to spend. I am pretty excited.

Hi yellowroses,

Welcome and hope you fill us in when you go to the Dominican Republic. There is a female member on this board who's from there, Jeygonza. She is a nice girl :) You might want to PM her if you want to know more about the Dominican Republic.

Warmest welcomes to HappierAbroad!

And yes, not all American women are monsters. Quite a few American women are also incredibly kind, virtuous, and generous people. I have seen plenty of wonderful American women volunteering at charities, helping the less fortunate, and making the world a better place to live. I also have met a middle-aged American woman who met her Mexican husband in Chiapas, Mexico, and they have been happily married for several years. She enjoys learning Spanish and Tzeltal (an indigenous language of Chiapas) and is an absolute joy to be around with. She is definitely not the "typical American woman" being bashed around the Web. This couple is certainly much happier than many couples involving foreign (non-Anglo) wives.

What you are going to do in Latin America is very admirable. :D I myself travel to Latin America a lot and enjoy immersing myself in the local cultures.

Welcome, although I've heard there are no women on the internet.

Do you know any women who are looking for mail order husbands? I'm sure this is a huge growth industry for the future!

Well, North American and European women have also reported being "happier abroad" in the Dominican Republic and Jamaica with the local guys. Those guys are often known as "beach boys."
