Seems I settled down to having a steady girlfriend. The curious thing about this is that while I was in Canada, I made it a point to date girls that looked Latin or might pass off as so (dark brown hair, big brown eyes, etc). Now that I’m in Chile, I hooked up with a white girl –with sandy brown hair (considered blonde here)– and hazel eyes. She’s reminiscent of the local stereotypical huasa (that’s her family’s background too).
Maybe dating her is about coming home … or always going against the grain. Maybe this is about remembering Canada, in some small way.
PS-She’s petite too, not tall, lanky, and awkwardly styled.
