Slowly I have been meeting Chilean bloggers that I really like, people who have something in common with me.These meetings started with Kyle and talking to her online via our blogs for about 10 months before meeting in person.Heather also has touched on this here in her blog, although she also focuses on the difficulties of female-female friendships in Chile.While I have successfully maintained multiple friendships with men in the US, I have definitely struggled more with this in Chile.He said he didn’t care, that he too was dating someone, and he just wanted to dance.He danced with me for the rest of the night at a respectful distance; we barely spoke. I reminded him that I was dating someone and uninterested in a relationship or romance, but I did give him my real number.The knowledge dropped on Chilean women here is solid and actionable.
Anyway, this week Kyle decided, via a suggestion from Heather, that we should all do posts on the same topic on the same day. To tell the truth, I am not sure what to say about this topic.This is sweet and we have a great, playful, honest relationship.But, the terming, also demonstrates how there is little space for female-male friendship between the non-related. He maintains multiple, longterm friendships with women. Lu recognizes and articulates many of the ways in which he is macho in his outlook. He also articulates the need for women to have sexual freedom and control over their lives.You’ll have much better job prospects and pay here than most Latin American countries.
Economic stability brings the benefits of safety and a low crime rate (don’t worry, I won’t talk about politics in this article). There are much cheaper countries in Latin America if you are willing to rough it.I have known many over the years in a variety of ways: boyfriends, host fathers, host family (brother, cousins, uncles), friends, teachers, strangers, and drunk men in bars.
