Here’s a discussion on the topic of expats dating Peruvian women from the forums:

Here they have to tell us who they are, who their parents are, where they live, where they go to school, and what the money is for. We ease up on the younger ones.

I remember one quite well. Maybe 7 or 8 or 9. In the middle of my questions he looked back at his father who was standing a few feet behind him. His dad said something like "son, just answer the man's questions, then ask him if he wants to buy anything". He had a little catalog that you select items from. I picked something out. . . . Fast forward a year . . . He returned, this time his dad stayed in the car. He started by telling me who he was, his parents, his school, where he lived, and why he was raising money. Then he opened his catalog to a bookmark he had placed and showed me what I bought last year. Then he pointed out some things he thought I might be interested in.

That was about 10 years ago. I wonder what he is doing now.
