The only thing I can say here is that alena is "half" right...in addition to participating in message boards, the best thing anyone can do is just get out there, travel, take a risk and meet different people. That's the main purpose of any board, to inform yourself. There's no magical solution or girl...there MIGHT be girls in the CR that have more the qualities you're looking for, it might turn out that the women you're attracted to are just as, if not more, superficial than the women you would find yourself dating in the US. The other thing is that if the US and Germany are too materialistic...the CR becoming moreso, then you must look to countries that are less developed. Of course, the problem there is that the women you would happen to like (with university education, at a minimum...or you would be bored to death, or maybe not?) would desire to find opportunities that don't exist in their countries. This would lead them to pressure you to take them to the US, where they would be "corrupted," in theory... Therein lies the dilemma...you want refined women, but refined women are NORMALLY not going to "stand by their man...bake cookies...cook...clean and" take a secondary, unequal position in their household. Most models are simplistic....maybe not in their lifestyles, but in their desires, if that makes sense. Of course, men always say they DON'T want a model, but the first model that's half intelligent that gives them attention, it's all over.
