Anyone else still in the dating phase or still deciding whether to file a Visa.

My mom is Panamanian so I'm technically Caribbean, but I'm from the states an everyone has been skeptical of my online relationships with Caribbean women. I've been talking to a woman in the DR for 6 months and I'm considering taking the next steps to making her my wife.I was planning to meet her on May 5 and stay for a week, but that is no longer an option. I think she is dying for me to propose whether I come or not and I don't want to disappoint her or her daughter. My mom thinks she's using me, my sister is a little more forgiving. I don't know...

 

Is anyone else more in the dating/ pre-engagement phase? Any pressure? Suspicions?

You need to meet her first and don't make any plans until you have meet a few times and get to spend real time together.

So somebody who you have never met wants to marry you?

 

Sounds a little odd.

Would you do this if she were here in the states?  It is not a normal thing.

 

And you can propose if you like, but you cannot file for any type of visa until after you've met in person.

I want to offer some advice from an old married woman.  I remember when I flew to meet the man who would become my husband for the first time.  It is a very exciting and fun time.  Enjoy yourself.  Get to really know her.  You will get to really know her in person.  Spend as much time as you can.  Don't spend "vacation time".  Spend time at home going about everyday life.  Once I stayed in Morocco for  three months and stayed with my husband's family.  During this time we had lots of discussions.  We discovered things we didn't agree on.  We had arguments.  And I got to see how he handled himself in difficult situations.  And this just let me know that this is a person I can spend the rest of my life with.  It is your decision of course.  But I wouldn't make any major decisions on your first trip.  I would just enjoy the time together and hopefully this will be the start of something special.

I mean, Look at Love is Blind. I’ve spent so much time video chatting with her. We talk on the phone as we lay in bed and fall asleep, it’s just the physical component that has been missing.

Oh my....  Basing your future on a reality show is probably not a wise decision.  

 

The physical component is 1000% more important than all the phone calls - and I don't just me sexually.  On the phone or in video chat you can be ANYONE you want.  I promise you, you don't really know someone until you are face to face for longer than a vacation.  That's not to say that your relationship can't be successful, but until you physically meet and spend a significant amount of time together, it's just a fantasy.  

 

Good luck to you both!
