To ensure you know what you're getting into before strolling down the passport-filled path to romance, we talked to folks from five countries that afford many of the government's fiancé visas. Of all the women in countries popular with Mail Order-Briding, those from Colombia are generally regarded as the most sincere.
Colombia The lowdown: You don’t hear about the Secret Service getting in trouble with the local ladies in Bolivia, do you? What she thinks about you: While in America it might be seen as “coming on too strong”, in Colombia it's just viewed as the equivalent of “waving hello from a car window”.
Which probably explains why American dudes are typically seen as cold and unromantic.
We’re also typecast as materialistic, naïve, and arrogant.
Colombian women make Marine Drill Instructors look sloppy, so your house better shine.
The new way to say it, especially if you're going to do it: “out-of-country dating”.
There’re a ton of sketchy websites that: A) have ZERO confidence in your ability to meet women, and B) are eager to introduce you to an international lady who speaks broken English and (luckily for you) has little to no idea of day-to-day life in North Dakota.
So basically, these chicks are pretty good judges of character.
What to expect: Your days of leaving beer cans and pizza boxes on the coffee table are over.
The skeptic's logic goes that if you order yourself a bride, she'll re-bride herself as soon as she gets a card that's green, but according to Citizen and Immigration Services, 80% of subsequent relationships that make it to marriage succeed.
But buyer beware -- women from different countries often have different "love connection" expectations when agreeing to allow you to pay them to move to the US.
