this is totally true I'm Dominican born and raised and it hurts me to admit but it's true and do not really know why this culture in my country as consumer and dependent visa and many only want dollars or euros, I never understood this if you want money, earn honestly not as dirty and destructive means for the other person! totally against but good I recommend to all you guys play the game are more cunning than them!I found this blog after a memorable trip to the Dominican Republic...... I lived in Puerto Plata for 10 years and grew to love the people in my 'campo' Sabana Grande.He supposedly works at a resort however I fear now that he is working at the airport.
This is a breed that many gringas believe doesn't exist! Each new 'gringa' thought her man was different only to be proved wrong and under the pitying gaze of the more seasoned gringas.

He struggled a bit, especially when he found that the streets were not paved with gold and that he\'d have to improve his english to get a job. So, I sold me house, my business, my car and dragged my son out of school and off we went to POP.

But, as I read your 10 ways to Spot a Sanky, I re-lived all that happened between me and my first Dominican husband, exactly as you said only this time his sister had cancer, he was then arrested and I paid the bail and he got himself fired from his job so we could spend Easter Holidays together, so I had to send money for some new clothes so he could take me out when I got there.
