Cuba Dating Advice Please
by Ted Harrison
I need some advice please
I just met this lovely cuban girl by a dating site 3 months ago. I start to get closer to her as she sent pictures of her and family. We keep in touch almost everyday by e mail, and she is always caring and sweet.
Well I am 36 years old with good job and not bad looking at all but I don't know what happend maybe is because she is 16 years younger and me and really good looking. Any way I plan to go and visit her in the next couple of weeks and she will be waiting for me in the airport with her mum, to travel where she lives but yesterday she ask me for some money top up her phone as her mother is not well. So I got little bit worried now I never been in Cuba and I am traveling alone, plus after that e mail she might just interested in my money. So I need some advice should go or just cancelled the holidays I already booked.

Sorry, if my comments might upset you. I give you my honest opinion based on the experience of many other Cuba visitors.
I see many red flags in your story. Sure she's after your money. This doesn't mean the relation will not work, one thing is for sure it will cost you (lots of) money.
Think about this:
What kind of relationship do you seek? A long distance relation whereby you meet her one or two times in a year? You have a good job abroad, there are no jobs in Cuba. How you gonna live?
Protect yourself and your assets if you gonna marry her. Note that the latin style of relationships is different of the Western style. Beware to sponsor her entire family and friends.
Before marriage be sure to seek advice from a lawyer (in Canada and Cuba) to protect your assets! Be vigilant, don't believe all the stories about money for the sick mother, child etc. There are several honest Cubans, but many Cubans are master storytellers to survive.
My advice take your time, don't rush things, and don't believe everything they say. Stay vigilant, to stay alive.
All the best, good luck!
