Dating

The beautiful city of San Juan is remote and isolated from the buzzing world. Due to its isolation from other cities, it has gained the nickname “The Oasis City”.

The city is not as popular as other cities in Argentina such as Mendoza, which is a two-hour drive from this isolated city, and Buenos Aires. However, it has a lot to offer.

Known for its wines, it is surrounded by vineyards and is not short of magic. It houses a population of about 517 660 people, most are which are of European descendants ( mostly Spanish and Italian). The official language is Spanish and the currency is Argentine peso (which is equivalent to 0.014USD).

The tourism industry is pretty slow here. Most tourists visit the city for its world-class vineyards, the El Leoncito National Park, and Ischigualasto Provincial Park. There are a lot of shopping centers and museums to see.

The city is slow-paced and offers a more relaxed atmosphere. It is situated west-central of Argentina and close to the Chile border. It has a hot, dry atmosphere, making it a perfect place to enjoy a chilled glass of their fine wine. It is an injustice to visit San Juan and not indulge in asado and chimichurri. This tasteful cuisine is to die for.


Dating Culture

There are a lot of beautiful people and places to meet them in San Juan. A common age for both girls and boys to start dating is 15 years old. Girls have a “cumpleanos de quince”, which is coming of age birthday party however the legal age of consent is eighteen years. If you like unpredictability, then this is a place for you.

Both women and men are unpredictable in the sense that they will give you mixed signals. You can enjoy a beautiful date with a person and never get a second date. The locals are infamous for their inability to respect time (when it comes to dating) or never bothering to show up. A last-minute cancellation is a norm in San Juan.

Men make the first move and the ladies might pretend not to be interested. They do this to gauge how interested the men are in them. Therefore, no might not necessarily mean no here.

Unless it is a hard no, trying your luck a few times is advised. Couples have separate sets of friends and multi-dating is normal. Couples spend time getting to know each other before they are committed to one another.

Argentinians are known for their expressive and emotive communication, and this is evident in their romantic relationships. Public display of affection is as normal as breathing here. This might also be the only place where personal questions are allowed. It might seem impolite not to ask them.

Taking your hat off when talking to a woman is a sign of respect. Expensive gifts might be deemed as a bribe. Online dating is not as popular as in other major cities but one can still meet people on dating apps such as Tinder.

Due to the Christian roots of the city, most couples do not live together before marriage. Most people live with their parents until they are married. Females are expected to exhibit 'marianismo' i.e feminine and nurturing while males are expected to be machismo which is dominant, masculine, and self-reliant. Argentina is among the first Latin American countries to legalize same-sex marriage
