Marriage Proposal

Yesterday I got proposed to for the first time in Colombia. It was not a particularly romantic or tempting proposal. But I do appreciate the guys honesty. Here’s how it went down:

Guy: I want to leave Colombia and go work somewhere else. Will you marry me so I can get a visa?

Me: What kind of monetary compensation do I get?

Guy: I’m a good-looking guy. People say I look like Juanes. That should be enough.

Me: Do you have a job?

Guy: No.

Me: Did you finish school?

Guy: No.

Me: How do you support yourself?

Guy: My parents support me.

I declined.
