Dating a hispanic guy
There was the Argentinian singer I met next to the Beatrice Inn one night, who played me ballads on his guitar while whispering sweet nothings in my ear.There was the Brazilian boy who flew all the way to Paris to visit me after knowing me for merely a few days. They are romantic and passionate and zealous, with spark in their eyes and fire in their loins.
Then again, French men cheat and have none of the aforementioned positives, so judge for yourself.I love me a Latin anything – Mexican food, Peruvian corn, Pisco Sours, Flamenco, you name it.Never having stepped foot in South America (yet – I’m saving myself), I have successfully outsourced the culture via a number of crazy Latino friends, as well as the other national treasure that this part of the world to offer – Latin men have led to some of the more exciting adventures of my young life.Persistent, occasionally almost bordering on pushy, similarly to Italians. Brazilians – Boisterous and crazy, yet so much fun.I have dated a few and am always amazed at the of these guys – whatever they’re taking has to be imported to France.Lastly, there was the suave Peruvian we appropriately nicknamed Juan Pablo, who, in his brief moment of courtship, treated me better than any other guy ever did. They make you feel like a woman, and an attractive one at that.
They are the closest one will get to a Jewish man without the Mamma’s Boy syndrome, or a Russian without the accompanying prejudices and closed-mindedness.
A bunch of construction workers on the street happened to notice two women with breasts (me) and legs (her) and decided to express their appreciation. They pick you up, they open the door, they deliver you home at the end of the night, making you feel like you can finally relax and forget about the timetable of the last Metro.
There we were, two New York expats, glowing in the bask of whistles and “buena” cheers from a bunch of construction workers. The restaurant, the bill, the traffic – none of these are any longer your concern.
Yes, while a Mexican man may say he loves you, that he’s been waiting to meet someone like you, or that he’ll follow you anywhere, please be very skeptical if this kind of talk occurs within the first month or week of dating.
Be especially skeptical if this follows the first date, especially a date where you didn’t sleep with him.
Never let a woman pay, even if said woman is merely a friend. Perhaps slightly less macho than the rest of them..
