At first glance, the Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince, with its multicolored mountainside houses, is reminiscent of the vibrant Valparaíso city in Chile that is built on hills, or of the brightly-hued towns such as Positano, nesting on the cliffs of the Amalfi coast in Italy. However, the colorful facades were meant to emphasize the wealth or the bohemian charm of the places in Italy and Chile. The tiny homes clustered together and clinging to the steep slopes in Port-au-Prince were nicknamed ‘misery in colors’. The attempt to beautify the plain cinder block houses that people were relocated to after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake seems to be a creative way of using paint as an antidote to poverty and hardship.
Painting the city slums in every shade of the rainbow is a perfect illustration of the great personality, resilience and positive attitude of Haitians. Despite the tough living conditions, they still find ways to enjoy life and be happy. They love their country and are grateful for how little they have to sustain a living. This is what makes Haitians different from many other people who seem to never have enough no matter how much they consume or accumulate.
Why Haitian Women Are So Popular?
Due to the transatlantic slave trade, two new countries were formed on an island called La Española that was used by the Spanish and French as a port for slave trade. Today, these countries are known as the Dominican Republic on the east of the island, and Haiti on the west. The history of slavery and the Spanish and then French colonization of the country have shaped the Haitian culture that is a blend of African and European influences.
While women in the Dominican Republic are Spanish-speaking and Mediterranean-looking (a mix of white, black and indigenous Caribbean), the French-speaking and Creole-speaking Haitian women are about 90% African, with some degree of indigenous Taíno ancestry. The Creole culture is believed to have originated from a trinity of racial blend: Taíno, Spanish and African. Some written records and literature pieces suggest that Creole women had a fascinating kind of beauty, incredibly soft supple skin, and fit, perfectly toned bodies. However, the world has always worshipped the beauty ideal of a white woman with a less healthy physique.
Haitian females, the modern descendants of the legendary Creoles, are not as popular as the women from the neighboring Dominican Republic, as the latter has better infrastructure, tourism industry and entertainment to offer to the travelers. Hopefully, the restoration following the earthquake will ultimately put Haiti back on the tourists’ radar. That’s probably the point when the women of Haiti will become just as popular as Dominican women. If Haitian ladies weren’t that underrated, and more international daters discovered these hidden gems, many foreign men would appreciate their genuine beauty. It would certainly seem very different from today’s ideals, but those standards have been changing worldwide since the dawn of civilization – and, alas, getting more unnatural with every passing fashion or beauty fad. What makes Haitian women so great is a combination of genetics, very feminine features, the positive and family-nurturing personality, resilience, humbleness and gratitude.
What are Haitian Brides Like?
Haitian women are genetically gifted with lovely facial features, plump lips, and very youthful looks and skin glow. Their dark skin is not only smooth, soft and almost shiny but it also ages slower than white skin, and seems to be glowing from the inside. This is natural and very different from the effects many women worldwide are trying to create with highlighters, bronzers and shimmery lotions.
If you admire dark-skinned beauties and sexy curves, you will love Haitian girls who have amazing bodies. If you have traveled to Latin American countries, and think you have seen some of the best and sexiest booty types you could have ever imagined, wait till you see the gorgeous Haitian women. They are particularly well endowed in that respect, while having slender and toned bodies, which is the amazing shapeliness that Latinas often lack. The fact that the most ‘bootylicious’ beauty is found elsewhere, it may seem just as jaw-dropping as the size and shape of a Haitian woman’s buttocks. But that’s not the only thing that makes Haitian ladies stand out from many other women.
A Haitian woman is capable of loving without keeping scores, as tallying up contributions in a relationship or family is extrinsic to the Haitian culture. The traditional and communal family structures, values and routines are essential for survival, especially in rural areas. Great importance is placed on family life, solid relationships, respect for the elder family members and their opinions or advice, as well as on helping and supporting each other. Most likely, the extreme poverty makes Haitians understand these are the only things they have and can give one another. The tradition and cultural practice of giving and sharing – not seeking to take from someone else – is so distinctively Haitian, and probably endemic to this land.
Compare this to the countries swept by materialism and consumerism: the approach of most people with love and feelings is similar to that with money – not daring to spend for the fear of losing; being reluctant to share or give for the fear of not getting something in return; and even being afraid of love because the happiness could be gone in the future.
Your Best Place to Find Haitian Mail Order Brides?
Despite the instability, unemployment, and low standards of living, Haitians are friendly, easy-going, welcoming people. Still, you may come across polarized opinions on the safety of traveling to Haiti. Some tourists have enjoyed every day of their stay, others were robbed on their way from the airport to the hotel. It is generally recommended to stay in the capital and choose guided tours over travelling by yourself. Jacmel and Cap Haitien are some of the good tourist destinations with great beaches. However, Haiti is not the country where you can expect to pick up girls at nightclubs, because they can’t afford to go there. Any beautiful Haitian girls you will see in the nightclubs are most likely to be working girls.
Luckily, you can meet Haitian singles during the day and ask them out to a café or restaurant. Most of them will be happy to accept your invitation. Your exotic status as a foreigner in Haiti means that any beautiful Haitian girl is likely to be interested in you. For one thing, the Haitian girls simply don’t see many tourists around, and for another, they are sick and tired of the Haitian dating customs and outdated views on marriage. If you scroll through the profiles on Haitian dating sites, you will find lots of Haitian women for marriage because they won’t tolerate some century-old cultural beliefs defining the way they live today.
No, we’re not just talking about some Haitian dating customs such as early marriage at the age of 15 — 18, and asking the girl’s parents for permission to marry her, though this is still common in rural areas. Historically, Haitian men used to have children from more than one woman, and have more than one wife. While it’s not legal, the community has always considered such ‘marriages’ legitimate and acceptable, solely because of stemming from the old traditions. Polygamy in Haiti, though not officially recognized, has usually been viewed as a sign of wealth of the Haitian men.
Admittedly, this is likely to have been a survival strategy back in the day when so many children died at an early age that they weren’t even given real names before surviving their first years. Today, Haitian men having several girlfriends has little to do with wealth, or with providing for all of their children, simply resulting in many single mothers. That’s why many young beautiful Haitian girls join the international dating platforms and prefer marrying a foreigner. They all want their children to have a caring father, a good education, and a brighter future. So the best place to find single Haitian ladies is online.
How to Seduce Haitian Women?
Haitian women just want to have a better life, and most of them would like to have a job but can’t find one in their country, only being able to work on the land and sell some of their produce at the market (unemployment and poverty are two closely related problems in Haiti). Above all, these women want their future children to get proper education – but that’s likely to be not affordable, and it’s a discouraging perspective if they stay in Haiti. This is why many Haitian women are willing to marry a foreigner and relocate to another country. Some of the upper-class Haitian girls may cherish more extravagant dreams, but even those are less pretentious than the expectations of many women from other countries who want to date or marry foreigners.
Haitian women aren’t very demanding – most are looking for commitment and financial stability. They are used to tough life, hard work, and to trying to create something while having next to nothing. So if you can offer a better option than that, if you can provide for the family, and are looking into a serious relationship or marriage, Haitian brides will see you as attractive and reliable. Dating a Haitian woman is easy for a foreigner, especially for the one who wants to create a happy family with children. Becoming a mother and a wife is essential for a Haitian woman, and children are considered gifts of God in Haiti.
The only downside to dating a beautiful Haitian woman is likely to be the language barrier. While Haiti has two official languages – French and Haitian Creole, the latter is the commonly spoken language. Historically, the more educated some Haitians were, the more likely they were to have learned French, so it’s easy to see why French-speaking Haitians are a minority, especially in rural areas. In the capital, you are more likely to meet them, as well as those Haitians who speak some Spanish or English they have learned while working or studying in the Dominican Republic. That’s another reason to look for the modern versions of Creole beauties on Haitian dating sites, where you can find more girls who speak French, Spanish or English.
How to Find a Reliable Haitian Dating Website?
When you are looking for a Haitian dating site, there aren’t that many options – just searching the international dating platforms for profiles of single Haitian ladies, or trying to find some on Tinder. But the dating apps such as Tinder and Badoo are not as popular in Haiti as in other countries, so you shouldn’t expect to find many dates there.
The reputable international dating websites are safe and easy to use because they offer data encryption, security and anti-scam measures, as well as enough different features to consider their prices affordable. The free registration and membership only lets you see the profiles of the women, but not write messages. However, free members can answer the messages of the paid users, which is a good thing for the Haitian ladies – they can actually communicate with foreigners for free by answering their messages.
