What can I do to make teen friends in Bolivia?
Hey, i am a teenage American girl, moving to Bolivia. i have been to Bolivia twice before and i have some really good Bolivian friends now. However they are all guys. most of the girls however are very cold to me. i am a peacekeeper and i have no enemies and i like to be friends with everyone. i am quite friendly and really want to get to know the girls my age, but i guess they view me as a threat because their guy friends are now giving me all the attention (which i thoroughly do NOT want, i am a bit shy and just like to be friends with people rather than have the attention be on me.) The guys are all very friendly and eager to get to know me, which is nice, but however, when i become friends with the Bolivian guys, i cant become friends with the girls because they feel the attention is now on me and not them. i would love to have some Girls as friends and i try to be as loving and happy as i can towards them, but they tend to be rather cold and rude towards me. how can i change this?? i don’t want to be a threat to any of them and they can keep their guys, i do not want them! i am not here to steal all their men. are a lot of the Bolivian girls like this? What should i do or not do to get to know them? i don’t know if somehow i have stepped over the cultural boundaries and offended them, which i don’t think i have, but i don’t know! if you have any help, i would love to hear it! thanks!
