"Single in My City" Series: In Puerto Rico with Ambar!

Nov 17th 2009 22 Comments

In this Wednesday’s SIMC epi, we have the Super Adorable:
Ambar from Ambar’s Thoughts,
on location in Puerto Rico!

Describe the ‘Dating Scene’ in your city:

The “Dating Scene” in Mayaguez, (Puerto Rico) is pretty much EVERYONE & EVERYWHERE. I consider this city to be a “student-city”. Even though I was born and raised there, I always knew that weekends sucked because students went back home on Fridays. So, if I wanted to go out, and possibly meet a guy (that I hadn’t grew up with) it had to be Sunday-Thursday. Don’t get me wrong, you could find something to do everyday of the week, but they would probably be less people around during the weekends.
Are you an Online Dater?
I have never joined an online dating community, and hopefully never will. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with them, let alone with people who use them. But let’s just say that I would have a hard time trusting guys met this way. However, I have gone out with guys met through facebook/myspace/hi5 or whatever was in at the moment. It was just an easier way to get in touch, I guess. Example: cute guy in your class, you know his name, you always say hi, but never have time to talk. It is definitely easier to make plans to go out through Facebook, or Messenger … you get my point, so friend him NOW, and poke him 🙂
Guys you Avoid like the PLAGUE:
This is so funny. I actually have a Facebook group called “Sucky Losers” and it’s all about guys you should DEFINITELY avoid. My top three would be frat boys, athletes, and musicians. There’s also older guys (as in over 10 yrs older, younger ones, and guys you’ve known for way too long. Now, let’s be clear for a sec here, I’m in a sorority and my boyfriend is in a fraternity, and yes we met because of that. BUT, the big majority of these guys are players. BIG TIME PLAYERS that is.

Any Specific “Type” of Guy that runs rampant in your city?

Like I said, this is a student city and there’s over 20 greek groups within one campus, so frat boys are rampant. Also, girls if you just met a guy from a city far away, who says he’s single he probably IS NOT. So be sure to check first and/or that you trust him enough to believe him. Because I’ve seen it happen one too many times.

Fave Date Spots:

To me, a date is dinner and a movie. Consider me old school or whatever but yes, that’s what should be done in a date, at least at the beginning. I guess a fave rest for me to go was Pizzeria Uno or Chillis [students budget] and both within walking distance from the movie theatre. Going to Borders to grab coffee and talk after the movie.. priceless. Also, walking distance.

Staple Go-To Date Outy:
I haven’t been single in forever (like my boyfriend says, and made me specify, LOL) but I’m a casual girl. So it was usually jeans, a pretty top and heels.

Most Romantic Attribute of your city:
The best thing about this city, besides all the bars and clubs located at downtown, I would have to say the sunset. Even though the beach is not one of the prettiest (because of the port) the sunsets are ah-ma-zing!

Thank you so much Ambar, for giving us the inside view of the dating scene in Puerto Rico!!
I can’t wait to visit PR one day – look at that gorg sunset 😉

And isn’t her “Sucky Loser Group” just classic – LOL!

    aw what a great feature! I definitely stay away from athletes but I've always been attracted to musicians. My boyfriend of over a year and a half was a in a band and toured for a couple years. Maybe girls should stay away from famous musicians (fame can get to the head!) haha
