What to Know About Dating Costa Rican Women (Ticas)
Living in Costa Rica – After seeing the beauty of Costa Rican women I doubt there is anyone who wouldn’t be interested! Costa Rica boasts such a diversity; the light and dark colors and mesmerizing features make me think that Costa Rican, or “tica,” women have the best mix of genes in the world. Not to mention the in control attitudes and stylish fashion they wear.
Most girls here are always matching from head to toe, totally put together even if they are just running out to buy something at the grocery store! Their makeup is flawless and their demeanor is charming. Are you wondering how to date a Costa Rican yet?
First, recognize that all women are different and don’t stereotype them! This is true in any country. Following will be some aspects that will be true of most Costa Rican women, yet the key to any girl’s heart is to know her both as part of her culture and as an individual.
Many “tica” women value their families and their faith above anything, especially above guys! Don’t make them choose between you and their family or religious activities, because you won’t like the result in most cases. Compliment the cleanliness of her house and the flavor of her cooking (and that of her family) because these things are very important in Costa Rican culture.
Don’t mistake quiet for passive. Costa Rican women have ideas and education and good jobs. They may seem quite to foreigners but they are very strong and smart. Recognizing the things she values and the talents she has will help you greatly if you want to date a Costa Rican women!
Lastly, understand that most Costa Rican women are not desperately looking for a foreigner to come and take them away. If you don’t want to live in Costa Rica close to her family you probably should rethink dating a Costa Rican girl. Many think that they want to go to the USA for where ever you are from but then when they get there in 6 months they will want to return home. To make a relationship work be prepared to stay in Costa Rica. If you want to import a wife get a Russian bride online.
They do not want to be compared to your ex-girlfriends from another country, as most women do not. Also do stereotype them and say you are acting “so latina”. Learn as much as you can about the country and culture in addition to the many intriguing layers she has and you will be all set to date in Costa Rica.
Like all women you do have some that are snakes in the grass that you need to watch out for so you do not get left heart broken and penniless. You must watch out for those women that are in the “business of gringos” as one Costa Rican woman once told me. There are good and bad women everywhere and you can find your type in every country in the world.
PS – If you are down here for sex tourism and you want to “save a girl from this life”, make sure she actually wants to be saved. Most do not.
