The earthquake in 2010 changed everything.
Dating beautiful Haitian women was never the same again. But the scars are healing and gave rise to even stronger traditional family and gender values.
Here’s what a 26-year-old girl I met on Caribbean Cupid wrote in her profile:
This sums it up.
Today, almost 8 years after the devastating earthquake, Haitian girls are more motivated than ever to find a man who protects them, takes care of them, and makes sure that they are safe.
After reading this article you’ll know if you can and want to be that guy for her…
The Beauty and Suffering of Haitian Women
“Are Haitian girls beautiful?” a guy on a popular internet forum asked.
Here are some of the answers he received:
So…what’s the truth?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You’ll either hate them or love them. You’re not in the Dominican Republic. You can’t just go there and choose among white, brown, dark, and everything in between.
You are in the Africa of the Caribbean…
Haitian Women: The Underrated Neighbors
Let’s cut to the chase.
But what about all the beautiful Haitian girls you can meet in Port-au-Prince?
Oh, wait. There is a reason:
95% of the women in Haiti identify themselves as ethnically African. Or let’s say they can be identified as ethnically African. Most of them don’t like to hear that they are black (more on that later). Only 5% of the population is white or mestizo.
All the neighboring countries believe that they are ugly because they are black (no joke).
What about you? Do you like dark-skinned girls?
If the answer is yes, you’ll love dating women in Haiti…
Haitian Women Want to End the Suffering
They are looking for you.
Continue reading and you’ll discover where you can meet thousands of Haitian singles online. And no, it’s not the dating site you planned to join. But first, I want you to think about the reason why a hot 21-year-old Haitian girl considers herself lucky to date a 55-year-old Western man.
You are her last hope.
Her grandmother, mother, and she have survived embargos, dictatorships, Cholera epidemics, natural disasters and of course, the earthquake in 2010.
I just want you to understand one thing:
Your future Haitian girlfriend knows what it means to suffer.
Heck, Jean-Claude Duvalier, the former president of the country (and the guy who ruined it) said that “it is the destiny of the people of Haiti to suffer.” What an admirable leader.
So yeah, dating a Western man means:
Combine this with the fact that they are addicted to white men and you know why so many Haitian women are looking for marriage, love, and romance online.
Family is a Haitian Woman’s Bastion of Strength
You are more than just her cure for suffering.
Dating a Haitian woman means being part of her family. Her family is her bastion of strength…even more so since 2010. That’s when she experienced how important it is to have someone who supports her and protects her.
Family values are part of her identity.
If she’s a low-class or middle-class girl, she might even live with her extended family. Taking care of her siblings, nephews and cousins is something she does every day. And she’s pretty good at it. Traditional gender roles are the only roles she knows.
Here’s what this means for you:
- 1She lives with her parents until she gets married (invite her to your place).
- 2She’s good at raising a family (just in case you want a Haitian wife).
- 3She’s not a feminist (you date a feminine African beauty)
She’s a woman and she will treat you like her king. Be a man and treat her like your queen. You are part of her family.
Haitian Girls Just Want to Have Fun
She’s been through so much.
One part of dating hot Haitian women is that you’ll never be able to fully understand what’s going on behind her beautiful face. I mean, you probably didn’t lose five family members under your collapsed house.
These are things you and I will never understand.
That’s why it’s so important to put a smile on her face. Heck, I’m pretty sure she’ll make you smile first. Despite the hardship, everything in this country is colorful. The buses, carnival, the clothes, and the parties they celebrate.
Haitian girls know how to have fun…
Their smiles are invigorating. Their fun-loving attitude is contagious.
Why Caribbean Cupid is the Best Haitian Dating Site
What’s the best site to meet Haitian women?
I tested the most popular Haitian dating sites on the internet. Yes, I even signed up on Haitiandating.com, which is by far the most popular one.
They all failed my test. Every. Single. One.
I couldn’t find any good dating site that fulfilled these criteria:
It was hard. Heck, I couldn’t even find many Haitian girls on Afro Introductions and Latin American Cupid…and these are some of my favorite dating sites.
My last chance:
I joined Caribbean Cupid, made a search, and my heart started beating faster and faster. Finally, I found the Holy Grail. I saw more photos of Haitian women than my mind could handle. I was blown away.
I didn’t expect that Caribbean Cupid wins hands down against all these so-called Haitian dating sites. But so be it. If you find a dating site with more members from this Caribbean country, I buy you a beer.
It tuns out that Haiti is one of the most popular countries on this dating site...
The 3 Best Cities for Your First Date with a Haitian Woman
It’s up to you.
You can travel to Port-au-Prince or the other two places I introduce in the following paragraphs with the intention to meet women. You can go there, walk along the street, and try to pick up girls.
But it would be stupid. Here’s why:
Here’s what I would do:
Meet a girl online and take her to one of the dating venues I share with you.
Are you ready?
1. Meet and Date Haitian Women in Port-au-Prince
Port-au-Prince is the largest city in Haiti.
More than 2 million people live in this shithole…uhhmm beautiful capital city. But I have to warn you. It’s not beautiful. If you are a hypochondriac, you’ll get a heart attack and a stroke at the same time.
There’s only one reason why a sane man visits Port-au-Prince:
Most girls you can meet on Caribbean Cupid live in the capital. That’s the only reason. It’s the perfect city to meet many young and beautiful Haitian girls. But it’s definitely not a tourist destination.
Nevertheless, you can enjoy your first date at:
The Institut Francais (enjoy a cultural event)
Yanvalou (a relatively cheap bar and lounge)
Garden Meals with Life Music (Listen to life music. Duh!)
The Musee du Pantheon National Haitien (prove that you love her culture)
Enjoy our first date!
2. Meet and Date Haitian Women in Cap-Haitien
Cap-Haitian is one of the few beautiful places that this country has to offer.
There aren’t so many.
It’s located in the department of Nord and is famous for its beautiful architecture and artistic life. But I guess you don’t give a shit about that. Be honest. You want to know if it’s good for dating Haitian women.
Well, yeah. Otherwise I wouldn’t mention it.
With more than 270.000 inhabitants and a beautiful landscape it’s the perfect place to meet more local girls than you can handle…especially if you follow my advice and take her to one of the places below.
The Cathedral Notre Dame de Cap Haitien
The Citadelle Laderriere (an UNESCO Worl Heritage Site)
The popular Kokiyaj Bar & Grill (eat everything that swims)
A day trip to the Paradis (the name says everything)
Let her be your tour guide. She’ll love to hold your hand while you visit the Cathedral and kiss her on the Paradis beach.
3. Meet and Date Haitian Women in Port-Salut
Port-Salut is one of those places that you won’t find in a guidebook.
Everyone knows about the Labadee Beach and the Wahoo Bay Beach. And the reason is pretty simple. You can only access these beaches if you book an overpriced resort. That’s why nobody talks about Port-Salut.
Maybe you’ll meet a girl online who lives close to Port-Salut.
What if you don’t?
Invite another girl on a one-day trip. You won’t regret it. You can relax at the beach, touch her half-naked body in the water (you dirty bastard!) and enjoy the local food.
Take her to Port-Salut and she’ll fall in love with you.
Adventure Date: Kiss Your Haitian Girlfriend at a Romantic Waterfall
I have another idea for your first date. She might not be your girlfriend now, but she will be when you kiss her next to a waterfall. You are both wet (she’s even wetter). The water is rushing down. Your hearts are beating.
Come on. That’s fucking romantic.
You can find so many waterfalls in this country. And even more girls who want to make out with you. Isn’t that awesome? Just take her to the Bassin Bleu beach or the Basin Zim. You can even take her to the Saut Mathurine. But be careful.
Do NOT take her to the Saut D’eu!
There’s an annual Voodoo festival and if you arrive at the wrong time, you’ll find yourself in the middle of too many crazy locals who do too many crazy things. Watch out. This is not a swingers orgy. This is hardcore.
Secret Tip: Date a Christian Lady and Not a Voodoo Princess
Approximately 80%-85% of the Haitian brides you can meet online are Catholic.
That’s the good news.
Some of them hold ancient voodoo beliefs.
That’s the bad news.
Believe me. That’s really bad news. You might think that dating an African voodoo princess sounds hot. Well, maybe. But does it sound hot to date a woman who cuts the throat of a sheep because she thinks that the blood brings luck?
You’ve seen the video from the voodoo festival.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to have a girlfriend who screams like a maniac in front of a waterfall. Not so sexy.
Stick to the Catholic or Protestant girls and don’t forget to ask her about her voodoo beliefs.
What It Means to Be White and to Date a Haitian Woman
Yes, white guys have it easier.
It’s no secret. South American and Caribbean women love white men. Haiti is no exception. Of course, you can also score as a black or Asian dude. There’s no doubt about that. The female neighbors of the Dominican Republic love all foreigners.
But they love Caucasians a bit more.
Here’s the truth about dating Haitian women as a white man…
50 Shades Darker: Why Haitian Women Love White Men
Most women in Haiti are black.
Dominican girls, on the other hand, call themselves mulatto, indio, or even trigueno, which means “the color of wheat”. They don’t refer to themselves as black. That’s an insult. This word is only used for their neighbors.
Haiti was colonized by the French. Since they invaded in December 1894, white skin is considered beautiful. It’s a sign of power, status, and high-class. Now combine this with the fact that 95% of the population is black.
Mr. Inferiority Complex is knocking on the door.
Even though only 5% of the population is mixed or white, the ideal of beauty persists. The darker she is, the whiter she wants. You are more than just a boyfriend to her. You are the beauty she wants to see in the mirror.
Your Haitian Girlfriend is Jealous Because You are White
Now you know that they love white men more than their own life.
That’s dangerous. It’s dangerous because she will do EVERYTHING to keep you and to defend you against the other thousand women who want to date you. Everywhere you go, she sees younger and hotter girls who stare at you.
Haitian ladies are not shy. They will stare at you.
Hell, they will undress you with their eyes. It’s impossible to look away. You’ll enjoy it too much…way too much for her taste. Yep, she’ll be jealous. And she’s pretty damn good at finding new numbers in your phone.
You better change your password.
5 Pitfalls of Dating Haitian Women
Not everything is rainbows and unicorns.
You have to know what you’re doing. You don’t want to be the only white guy who can’t get a date in Port-au-Prince. That would be a record that sucks big time. No, you want to score.
You want to wake up next to a sexy Haitian girl.
Am I right?
Then continue reading and don’t fall into the following five traps…
1. Language: The Biggest Problem When Dating in Haiti
I already listed dozens of reasons why online dating beats day game or night game hands down…at least in this country.
Here’s another reason:
It’s not that easy to find Haitian single women who speak English. French is the first language, but most of them don’t even speak French. Only 20% do. The rest speaks Creole. That’s a mixture of Africans, English, Spanish and the kind of French that was spoken before they invented the baguette.
Approach 20 girls on the street and if you’re lucky, one of them understands you.
Approach 20 girls online (after you searched for English-speaking girls) and you’ll get 15 replies.
That’s how you avoid the language trap.
2. Don’t Freak Out When You Pick up the Check
The Haitian dating culture is traditional.
She expects you to pay on the first date. Hell, even if she wanted to pay, she doesn’t have the money. You are in one of the poorest countries on earth. She really can’t afford the coffee. Just don’t get a heart attack when the sexy waitress brings the bill.
Here’s what’s going to happen:
- 1She says that it costs 20 dollars.
- 2You complain about getting ripped off.
- 3She’s pissed at you and calls her manager.
This is important. Listen up:
In Haiti, one dollar means 5 Gourde (the local currency). I suck at math but when she says 20 dollars, she means 100 Gourde…which is approximately $1.56.
1 (Haitian) dollar = 5 Gourde
Remember that before you go bonkers.
3. Your Dominican Ex-Girlfriend Will Break Your Neck
Remember what I said about Dominican girls calling themselves mulatto and Haitians black?
Now you know why they hate each other.
Dominican women make fun of their neighbors for being dark-skinned. Pretty Haitian women despise Dominican girls for their lighter skin and for being such whores and sluts (according to a Haitian girl I met in Bangkok).
Yes, they are envious.
Just make sure that you don’t mention your trip to the DR. And don’t even think about talking about all the beautiful Dominican women you’ve met. She’ll cut your balls off and eat them for dinner.
4. Haitian Women Hate Alcoholics and PDAF
No, I’m not talking about probabilistic data association filter.
I have no freaking idea what that means. I know PDAF as public display of affection. Costa Rican women do it. Brazilian women mastered the art. Almost every South American and Caribbean country is cool about it.
Not the women in this country.
If you want to meet Haitian singles, you have to remember that. You don’t want to mess everything up with a wet kiss in the middle of a shopping center.
Oh, and don’t get drunk on the first date. The local men are good at turning liquor into nothingness. That’s why the women hate men who drink too much.
You don’t believe me?
Tell her that you don’t drink and see what happens. She’ll smile.
5. Dating Haitian Women is a Battle with Superstitions
There’s one more thing you need to know about the Haitian female:
Superstition is her second name.
Don’t freak out when she has a nightmare and she really believes that you want to break up with her. Hug her and tell her that everything is alright. And don’t go crazy when she doesn’t allow you to eat the whole grapefruit. She just doesn’t want your mom to die.
Everything you do is a sign. So be good to her. Love her, take care of her, and make her happier than she has ever been.
Summed Up Wisdom
Haitian women are often overlooked and underrated. The truth is that this can be the perfect country for men who are into dark-skinned women. You can meet many feminine girls who know what it means to suffer. You are her last hope.
Please don’t destroy her hope by mentioning your Dominican ex-girlfriend. She’ll hate you forever. Instead, pick up the bill without getting a heart attack and make sure that the girl you’re dating speaks English. Caribbean Cupids gives you access to hundreds of English-speaking girls.
What about your relationship? She will be jealous and she will be superstitious. Deal with it. On the other hand, she’ll treat you like her king because you are everything she always wanted to be and have.
