It’s best to either have a set time planned to connect and give him your undivided attention.
OR email him the time of day you’re able to talk, and then he can meet you online at that time. If He Hasn’t Talked To You, It’s Because He Ran Out Of Money.
If you’re OK with rolling with the punches and seeing how it goes, and he/she makes significant effort to maintain contact with you while abroad, you should just go with your gut and do what feels good. Communicating In Cuba Is Complicated, Expensive, And Requires Multiple Apps. My Cuban papi has to buy an internet card every couple of days (at times spending his entire month’s paycheck just to buy internet to talk to me three times a day), ride his bike to the center of town, connect to internet in the blazing hot sun (IF it’s working), and then try to video chat with me.
Also, you’ll find yourself dropping everything to talk to him once he is connected to internet, because you never know when he’s going to be able to connect again. I got so tired of carrying around my phone and being available, especially when you’re traveling or at work trying to live your life.Sometimes they have specials for international calling. It took me 8 months of dating before I topped him up for the first time. It’s better if he/she has a car or house that they can put a lean on to ensure he returns.I needed him to hustle for these phone calls until I felt secure enough to send money. But not everyone is paranoid as me, so if you can’t wait to talk to him, go ahead and do so! After this experience, though, let a man not text me back. IF HE DIDN’T HAVE TO RIDE HIS BIKE, SPEND HIS ENTIRE PAYCHECK, AND SIT IN THE HOT SUN TO TALK TO ME THEN I DON’T WANT IT. This process takes 2 to 3 months (probably lookin’ more like 3) and the visa is valid for 5 years. This has been, admittedly, the hardest thing for me to overcome.Email is a special thing in Cuba because they don’t need to connect to internet to send an email.It is part of their phone plan and 100 times easier for them to use, especially if they don’t live near an wifi park.
