If you’re interested in finding an exotic Latin American bride then you’ve got a huge choice of countries to visit.
Last night I watched a TV show about Venezuela, so that got me thinking – is Venezuela a good place to find a Latin bride?
Guns, Gangs, Kidnappings, Killings…
The TV show I was watching was focused on the underbelly of Venezuelan culture. Sadly that meant guns (a lot of them), gangs and killings. Make no mistake, Venezuela is a risky place to visit.
What was so alarming was the fact that the criminals in the prisons were even armed! Prisoners with guns, it was all pretty unbelievable really. Have you ever seen Escape from New York? Well Venezuelan jails don’t seem to be an awful lot different! There was also drug dealing taking place inside the prison. Sure, this goes on in just about every prison in the world, but in Venezuela it was all out in the open. The prisoners had even set up little table stalls to show which drugs they had on offer!
And even more alarming was that the TV presenter interviewed a number of gang members in Caracas, who really showed little remorse for having killed so many people.
So think very carefully before you contemplate visiting Venezuela (or one of the neighboring countries like Colombia). Of course, the capital Caracas is the main focus of gang culture – the coastal resorts tend to be a little safer.
As a guy who has traveled to Asia in search of a foreign bride, the whole Latin American personal safety scares the hell out of me. Shootings are routine in Latin America, whereas they’re pretty rare in SE Asia, especially outside of the Philippines. In fact, when an armed bank robber in China was caught, it didn’t only make national headlines in China, but I even heard about it on Sky News in the UK.
Of course there is crime in Asia – I’m sure I got followed in China when I was there. But violent crime is pretty rare, especially against foreigners. I’ve visited some of the poorest parts of cities like Guangzhou and Wuhan, but I would never dare visit the poorest parts of Venezuelan or Colombian cities!
Anyway, onto better things…
Of course there are some very beautiful women in Venezuela. I used to watch the Miss World TV shows in the 1970’s and even as a kid I could appreciate that the Venezuelan ladies were usually the most beautiful in the entire World.
There’s no mistaking the fact that if you’re interested in Venezuelan women, then you can have your pick of the available women. Since so few American or other foreign guys are willing to risk visiting Venezuela, the Venezuelan women really struggle to find foreign men who want to meet them in person.
So how many Venezuelan single ladies are there online? I had a look on Latin Love. I found 1635 Venezuelan women on the site. The ladies were in a wide range of ages, with everything from 18 year old girls to 55 year old women.
On the same site there are 808 Brazilian women, 3642 Dominican Republic women, and a whopping 9060 Colombian women. So there are a lot more Venezuelan women than I would have guessed, but there’s not nearly the choice there is compared to Colombia.
Ethnically, Venezuelan women look fairly similar to Colombian women. For Latin America they’re fairly light skinned. Black women are quite rare, so if you like black women then you’re probably going to be better off looking in Colombia or the Dominican Republic.
Venezuelan women are fairly tall as well. I saw plenty of women who were 5′ 6″ or 5′ 7″ or taller. As a guy who’s used to dating Asian women, there seem to be many more taller women in Venezuela than there are in the Philippines or Thailand.
So if you’re happy to take the risk of visiting Venezuela then you’ll find plenty of Latin women who would be willing to meet up with you. Find Venezuelan women on Latin Love Search, Latin Love or Latin American Cupid. Personally I’d stick to Colombia, on the basis that there’s just so many more Colombian women to meet, and the fact that there’s more of an ethnically diverse choice of women.
Would you risk visiting a Venezuelan woman? Am I too paranoid? Leave your comments below!
