I need to know is my Cuban friend true or not?
People say so many horrible things... i just need to know if his heart is being true or not.... i was in cuba for my very first time in april, and the first night i was there i swore to my gf that i dont like foreigners so i probably wont hook up with anyone!! she went down there for someone.. anyways, the first night there i meet a guy... shy, quiet, and just non schilant.. so i sat and talked to him cause my other two gf's were all over the other ones... we talked and talked all night til about 5 in the morning... so for that whole week we hung out went to disco's together and just got to know each other!! i also told my gf, even if i do end up hooking up with a cuban it'll just be a fling... nothing special, just for fun... so i totally thought that way until i got on the bus and was home for a few days... i found myself thinking hard about this man... and the last day he gave me his email address just in case i felt like contacting him.. i said to him haha you probably do this all the time... and he said you know what im not going to lie... i do meet up with a lot of tourists but for some reason you stand out from the rest of them... please email me.. if you don't oh well life goes on right?! i was like right!! anyways so i emailed him just saying thanks for making my trip an excellent one!! and he replied... "your welcome... but for some reason i can not stop thinking about you... i told you . you stand out A LOT we talked like i have never talked with other girls... i am not a sweet talking person so dont think i am going to say all these things too you, its just i wanted you to know that i have not stopped thinking about you." so obviously me being curious cause my heart is telling me to do so... i emailed him back.... and we emailed back and forth then i decided to call him... and so i booked another trip in july.. this time for 2 weeks... he is on the national team for windsurfing and the weeks that i was coming fell on a very important competition. and the competition was in Matanzas and he was there for training and all that but still stopped everything to come meet me in Holguin guardalavaca. This is the thing though... because there was no plane to get there on the right date, he hitch hiked took him almost 2 days to get there in the middle of his training, and his dad was super pist at him but he still came!! once i arrived the next day we left for matanzas and stayed in matanzas for 4 nights for his competition. he introduced me to EVERYONE.. his coaches.. team mates.. school friends.... it was awkward but i have never felt so special in my life!! anyways the four nights were awesome got to live like a cuban.. food fantastic... then we headed back to guardalvaca... ok 11 hr car ride with no music cause the radio was busted.. and no cd's damn did we ever get to know eachother cause all we had to do was talk!! get back to guadalavaca and the best trip of my life i have to say.. i fell for him hard after that trip.. i felt like i have known him for years... i stayed with his family a lot... i got to speak with his mom and dad.. they know quite a bit of english considering his dad works at the hotel.. anyways.. last day there his mom cried.. said she would miss me and that i am always welcome back whenever... needless to say the goodbye was painful and 2 weeks back i booked another trip im leaving in one week... tell me real or fake? he's never asked me for anything.. he has everything he's ever wanted his family is pretty wealthy for being in cuba cause i guess its because his dad works at the resort and tips pay off well!! and he's grampa is in the usa and his uncle is in canada..so they send him money all the time... now i got to talking to his uncle in canada cause he wanted me to get to know him.. or maybe just to see what his uncle thinks of me.. and his uncle told me... you know i have found girls to marry him to get him here but he will not accept it.. i dont know why?! anyways.. this is super long (sorry) but i just want to know real or fake.?
oh yeah one last thing.. he ALWAYS picks up his phone for me no matter what!! sometimes i call at like 4 in the morning and he still picks up!! i just need some comments or advice or something this is totally new for me!!

I hate to be negative, but your story sounds familiar. Of course each situation is different that's why it's very delicate to express an opinion. Consider these facts: a Cuban marriage has a 70% failure rate, 70% of the Cuban marriages end in divorce. Cubans are master story tellers. Many Cubans fake love to get an exit visa. My advise: take your time, do things slowly don't make commitments. Learn more about your partner, this can take years. The best is to live in Cuba for 5-6 six months and look at his behaviour. Do you speak enough Spanish to understand what the familly and friends say (behind your back?) this can be valuable info, nobody can fake 24 hrs each day. Ask advice from the Canadian Embassy or Immigration Services they have experience in fraudulent Cuban relationships.
Wish you good luck, follow your heart, but remain vigilant!
