    [–] What are dating customs like in your country compared to the US? alleeele 1 points ago in asklatinamerica

    Agreed! I have no problem with it, however I’m a very private kind of person and usually kept the physical affection to private settings.

    I also thought it was strange! But he said that’s how it was done where he grew up... maybe it was just the company he kept. But he was friends with all kinds so idk. One last thing to add to my last comment, though— it seems to me that PDA is much more common! I wasn’ comfortable with it and had to explain that to my ex.

    Hi! So I’m not latin american, but my ex is Chilean/venezuelan, and I always thought this was an interesting story: when he wanted to make me his girlfriend, he asked his American friend how it’s usually done in America. Because in Chile, usually it’s a proper occasion where a boy asks a girl to be his girlfriend and buys her a cake or flowers or something! Kind of like asking someone out to prom in the states. He didn’t do that for me, lol. Though I would have found it cute.

    Fun fact... my Chilean ex’s dad started that trend 😬 had some interesting discussions about it...

    Hi! I hope my advice is not too late. Honestly? You should come to Israel. It will be by far the easiest and cheapest way. The government here takes good care of immigrants and you will get Hebrew lessons, among many other benefits for rent, education, buying a car, and other things. As for the healthcare, I am less familiar, but since you have a diagnosis it should be fine and definitely cheaper than in the US. Life here as a young person is fun, and if you were to want an additional degree, it will be funded by the state as you are an immigrant. The main difficulties will be language, and I have no idea about your field and what would the opportunities be there. If you have experience in translation, that will be valuable however. As for the IDF, you will not be able to serve due to your medical condition. If you want, you can fight to draft, but you will be very limited in job options within the army... that being said, if you succeed, you will most likely have your pick for many types of jobs. Security clearance can be an issue for immigrants who want high security intelligence jobs, and the IDF healthcare system is notoriously awful. However, you may get special accommodations. Military service is certainly the best way to integrate and learn the language. Message me if you need help! Good luck.

    True, but throw subjuntivo into the mix, and the conjugations become that much more difficult... I know we have it in English too but it’s so easy that native speakers aren’t really aware it exists. Additionally, in Spanish it’s used very differently.

    I once counted the amount of possible conjugations for a single verb in Spanish.... I think it came to something like twenty two. We can quejarnos as much as we want! 😹

    [–] Haven't seen a math class in 10 years, how hard can it be? 😱 alleeele 2 points ago in calculus

    Hey, so I didn’t leave studies for 10 years, but five. I started my degree this year, and one of the things I did was to do a short summer course on high school math before I started. It’s been very helpful! We jumped straight into the hard stuff.

    [–] Two of my male friends said our chemistry professor is unprofessional for “dressing like that” and “it’s distracting”, and I can’t stop thinking about it. alleeele 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Funnily enough, these comments were also said by a “proper southern boy”. He’s the only other American in my program and we represent polar opposite of American culture! I’m from California and we are both very much... from where we are.

    Agenda? The agenda of not being judged for looking nice and professional? They called her unprofessional and said she should stop. That’s where it is. What if they are someone’s boss, a young lady perhaps? Maybe she wears a nice dress to work? And maybe they think she’s unprofessional and doesn’t deserve a promotion...
