Picking up Chicks in Ecuador

dating in ecuador

“Damn….. she….. is…. fine, got to go say hello.” I thought as I walked over to her as she waited a cab in Quito.

“Hey, excuse me, can you tell me where Mall El Jardin is?” I asked in my broken Spanish with a heavy gringo accent.

“Sure it’s two blocks down and one to the right,” she said.

“Wow, sounds complicated.” I said as I pulled out my mini city map for added effect.

“And if I get lost? I’m gonna call ya.” I said smiling lightly.

“OK,” she said smiling.

“OK, I gotta run, write down your number here on the map just in case”. As I turned my body away.

3 days later, I called and told her I was lost again.

It’s FUN to be single in Ecuador.

Ecuador has some very underratedly beautiful women (and men), Then again, I’ve been told I have low standards.

And for such a small place you’ll be surprised at how much interracial dating is going on, you’ll notice how different the people look from one region to the next.

Esmeraldas has folks of African descent, Cuenca folks often have very light skin and hair. Guayaquil folks look totally different from the ones in Manta and Quito. And both the women and men have their nuances.

Now, I’ve lived in other latin countries like the DR, Colombia, and Mexico but Ecuador is special in that although Ecuador is very latin, it has adopted the clubbing and “loose” dating culture of the US (except in the small towns of course).

And while those other countries along with Cuba, Brazil and the Philippines are admittingly better for “flings and sleeping around” if you’re looking for that special someone to have a relationship with Ecuador is the place.

How to Find Love in Ecuador

find love in Ecuador

How would I go about starting a love life or finding a special someone in Ecuador?

Why waste time surfing the net, if your under 40 I’d hit the meat markets (singles clubs) where men and women go in groups of friends generally looking to meet new people like my fav, Bungaloo Bar, in the Mariscal of Quito.

If you’re over 40 I’d simply get active socially making friends, taking courses, working and the love life will come.

Another great idea for those not interested in going out is to hit the internet. My personal fav is LatinAmericanCupid.com but you’ll find many more Colombian women on there than Ecuadorian. What’s worked for me also is surfing the groups of Facebook that have a lot of members from the city where I’m located.

You can then hand pick who you’d like to meet and send them a short private message saying you’re new to Ecuador and would like to make new friends.

It’s a numbers game on the net but I’ve found net dating great. If you are into net dating, then you must learn more about elixir of eros.

Only one out of three are complete wierdos who will lock you in their basement and feed you to their army of cats.
