I saw that. Wish someone had the true numbers of how many ex-pats live here full time.

I think their "woman to man" ratio (52% women) is way off. It has to be at least 5 to 1 (80% women?).

I agree but maybe more like 4 or 3 to 1. Why is it so hard to get accurate numbers? Is there a way to get stats from the government on how many permanentes and temporary residents there are?

That would be too simple... only because they SHOULD know not only how many but where since you have to report change of address and change of status (like death).
I would be interested to know how many of those women are widows BUT decided to stay here after their husband's death.

I suspect the big reason there are more women than men is because there are a lot of widows.

Actually, Bob, while there may be widows, single females tend to be more adventurous and confident about travelling and living on their own than single males, in my experience. I know lots of single women of all ages who have settled in Mexico and almost none of them came down with a husband who died, they came on their own.
And lots of women like living on their own. Men not so much. One of the reasons there are more single women than men is because when a man breaks up with his partner, or she dies, they tend to look for a new relationship fairly soon.

That would be moi. Single all my life. This would be a great place for single male retirees.

With the way American women act at times I can see why a x pat would be attracted to a caring Mexican local. Now the age difference I never understand with American men. Not sure how they gave enough in common to get a strong relationship. Thank God I have a wonderful wife! 30 years married this year.

Wife says the same thing about American men as I do about American women. I would be forever single if anything ever happened to my wife..... One of a kind and irreplaceable.

Nice that you appreciate your wife, but "the way American women act"??? And how would that be?

I can assure you that Gringo guys who marry Mexican women do not find it unproblematic. You seem to think Mexican women are all sweet and compliant and faithful, which is a ridiculous assumption.
Jealousy is a huge issue- many Mexican women don't want their husbands to have any female friends, or even talk to other women socially.

LOL my wife is super spicy... what drew me too her... she was a Army vehicle mechanic. And she was in charge of you when you went to do work on your vehicle.... again super sexy never showed fear of getting soldiers to do the work she was in charge of getting them to do!

American women want balless men who will do what they say when they say it. They get upset when you open a door for them but then want you to pay for dinner? Heck some are now attacking women who choose to be house wives... like it some kind of insult. I got of the army first so I stayed home with our son while she finished her time in. didn't bother me at all but tons of American women didn't know what do say. She stayed home after because she felt like she missed out because of her working and me staying home. She did like any parent who works while the other stay home.

American women want a balless man then complain when they get a real man in bed.... seen it way to many times.

Lol.....I know a guy that was slapped around by his younger Mexican girlfriend. They do seem to be very "passionate" about everything. And of course, in many cases you can be expected to help support the extended family. No thanks.......

There is a difference between spicy and dangerous lol. Like I said I personally don't see anything from dating someone waaaaaay younger then myself. But to each there own.

Wow my wife says I am the opposite. I support strong women and she never would have married a misogynist but keep thinking that what you say matters to others outside your crew lol
