They will make your knees tremble. And once you go Mex , you can never go Ex. That generous-no-bars-held kind of hug is hot. As hot as the strongest hot sauce there is. Think of it as a bear taking control of your body but remember, biting is only allowed if you agree to it!
They ask this because they prefer to cook than eat out and not only because of the money. I mean come on, a good-looking man who can cook while a Mexican song is blaring on the radio? These creatures are the most genuine people on Earth. Just pure love. However, be warned that Mexicans are naturally good at exaggerating the truth.
Mexican men are very funny without even trying. Jokes are randomly thrown and it will make you laugh your heart out. No dull moments. There are no shortcuts. No gray areas. Who does that?! Although many of them are fluent in English, they have the habit of randomly murmuring in Spanish while looking at you, watching you sleep.
All you have to do is ask nicely. And you will never want anyone else. They will obey by letting you be and not talking to you. But they will stay just the same. You will always be that special girl in their life. Which gets me to thinking, if they dated 10 girls, that means they have 10 special girls? Mexicans are so full of love, they are always willing to share it. This post originally appeared on A Journey of Wonders and has been re-published here with permission.

If you use the force of love coming at your son instead of fighting it, you'll basically be getting a personal assistant for free. He looks like the most interesting man in the world but more intimidating. He offers you a glass of rum or tequila —sip it. And when he asks what you and your daughter will be doing later, don't say "having a good time. Get through it and you will truly win her heart. In fact, if you want to play the accent game, then learn Spanish.
We can do a back flip at a farmers market over a ripe mango. No need to jump back in fear or worry that we are upset. Waste not want not, as your people say. Of course any relationship involves compromise. Your Hispanic sweetheart will have to remember that expressing extreme emotions can be terrifying to your family, that not everybody wants a hug and a kiss goodbye, and that the chicken dance is fun - really!

What does this mean? Hi Anonymous, have you and your boyfriend "had the talk" where you agree that you're exclusively dating? Make sure you have this conversation first so you're both on the same page. If you have had the talk and you're exclusive, ask him why his profile still says "single.
He doesn't believe in advertising his relationship status on Facebook 2. He's hiding his relationship with you from other people, which is never a good sign. If his answer as to why he's not advertising his status sounds fishy, be on guard. I knew a girl who was dating a Mexican guy for a couple of years before she realized he was married with kids! The most obvious way to find this out is to make sure you meet his friends and family.
If he's reluctant to do this, something is definitely up. Hi Laura, I'm sorry to hear this has happened to you! Possessiveness can happen in any culture, it's the sign of bad boundaries and insecurity on his part.
I'm glad you got yourself out of that situation. You deserve someone who is confident in themselves and trusts you. Good luck xo B. I have been married for 15 years married a Mexican at 19yrs old. He is not the "typical" Mexican because he came to US when he was 19 and we met very shortly after.
He has became Americanized for the most part but still has some of these Mexican tendencies but I love him so much! Hey Purple, well Mexican guys, like in any country, come in all kind of flavors. There's definitely an overall cultural influence, but that's not to say that there isn't room for more progressive attitudes.
Honestly, a lot of American and Canadian men can be just as misogynistic. So I wouldn't say that "American" attitudes are necessarily better. Anyway, I'm glad that you've found love with your husband! Opposites attract, right? Number 1 is true.. Well I got a boyfriend from mexico.. I love him so much but I dont know if he feels thesame about me.. He always say sweet words but Im not sure if he is just doing it for flirting or if he is really saying the truth..
I need help Jhiivan, if your boyfriend is serious about you he will be making plans to be with you full-time--so either moving to your country, or helping you move to Mexico, or coming up a plan where you can move to a different country together. If he's not making any concrete plans for your future, he's not serious Trust me on this one. Good post but excuse me - western men? Um, Mexico is still part of the western world. Do you mean to say white men? American men? Please correct this!!
They are definitely not trustworthy, most of them. Was married to one, will never marry one again. Hi Anonymous from Puebla, there's a culture of machismo in Mexico, but said culture exists all around the world in different forms. I'm married to a Mexican man and he is the sweetest, most loving guy ever.
So I definitely wouldn't discount dating men from Mexico. There are always rotten apples in every bunch. Very interesting, I am a Mexican girl married to a Canadian guy. This has inspired me to write in my blog www. It's been a long journey!
Hi my saga is so sad, I fell in love with a Mexican guy, and he was fantastic, but he decided he wasn't ready for a relationship, code for I don't want one with you. He wants us to remain friends, as he says he feels comfortable with me and he even wanted to move in together, I took that to mean we were back together again, but when he didn't want to have sex because he said we were not in a relationship, we were just friends,I didn't understand why he wanted us to live together, so he finally said he didn't think it was a good idea we live together, because my emotions and mentality was that of being in a relationship with him, and he just wanted us to be friends.
I tried to rationalize it and tell myself maybe he was getting cold feet as I was going to relocate to where he is three hours away and he didn't want the responsibility of another person living with him, or maybe because I am African American, maybe this is some Mexican Culture thing I don't know about, or maybe because I inherited new debt, but it was not his debt it was my debt, because we were doing great, he was talking about a future with me and then bam, two weeks after I purchased two cars, car note for the next four years, he said he was ready for a relationship, The hard truth I had to face was he was my the "one" , but I was not his "the one, because I believe when a man finds the "one" nothing can keep them from being in a relationship with that person.
I asked God to show me my husband and at least let me meet him and God revealed him to me in a dream and wham two weeks later I saw him in person, the same man from the dream that is why I held on to him and didn't want to let him go, because God is never wrong, but maybe I was. He had this same exact conversation with me a year ago around the same time of the month, about not being ready for a relationship, wanting to to things on his own, like big trips, so last year after the conversation he went to Mexico for a week and came back and started with me again and started a relationship in Feb of this year, here I am six months later and lost him again.
This is a community of travelers, not a place to sell your service, and definitely a scam-free zone. What started off as friendship turned into something more than I could have ever imagined. Don't get me wrong we have our misunderstandings and arguments but it's really great how we work through them.
He's a very reserved and an adorably sweet guy. Respectful and attentive. I know he's not hiding me from his family and we both often talk about possibly living together one day in the future, but agreed we would experience each other's world's first.
I feel deep down in my heart that he is as genuine as they come and this is honestly the most mature, loving relationship I've ever been in. Well, one can only hope because I've had my share of creeps. Hi there, i'm currently in a long distance relationship with a Mexican guy, and i am not sure if I should relocate and accept with open arms the thought of being with him and leaving everything behind in my country.
Enjoyed your post, particularly as I myself have considered doing a similar one on my own blog and may yet - but I need to mull over my blunt wording a little better LOL! I too am Canadian and I live on an island in Mexico. I got thoroughly sideswiped by my first Mexican man. Funtimes learning how he picked me up at the Airport one day - the same day he went to pick up another woman that was apparently coming here to visit him. Things like that were common place with him.
Tourists are easy. There are men here that have a different woman almost every week some more, some less. It is amazing being seduced by those ones, they really know how to play the game Where I moved from, men were so aggressive towards women. I really do. If you do get involved, ask them to wear a condom.
That right there may make them walk away That being said I am one of the lucky ones and have found an amazing man. I have been happily married to my love for 21 years! He is Mexican. We have 3 children, 2 homes in Mexico paid for 2 homes here paid for He is a wonderful husband and father! Our first 5 or so years together were a bit rough but once he was domesticated, Lol.
It's been great! Sick of serving him while he is watching tv and doing most of the housework and in return I get my door opened for me and got jewelry. Like, I am not interested in being bought off. I have to jump through hoops to talk to him as my needs are always problematic for him I have so very few.
He's critical, blows up, talks a big game and is condescending. No thank you. I too am going through the same thing sarah is but i have a child and he is so ha5d on both of us. And i am completly tired of it we have been dating since i was 14 and then i got pregnant at 18 cheated on me when i was preg and we seperated and he had 2 kids with person he cheated on me with and then we got back together and hes been the same as sarah describes and always complaining i gained weight im not that big and always thinks negative and i do everything he never helps me with no housework he does work and come home and then always on his facebook or youtube we barely speak he doesnt want to talk about anything and i am so tired of this he has no manners and im trying because we have a child together but i dont want my son to end up like him being lazy and not communicating effectively and downing women.
I like it, good insight. I have an adopted daughter who is currently interested in dating a Mexican man who has spent 20 some odd years in prison. Speak honestly but compassionately with her about the situation. If you have concerns, raise them, but listen as well. She will ultimately make up her own mind about this man. My boyfriend is from Veracruz, iam an American. We are living in the US, he came here when he was 18 years old.
Became americanized, joined the national guard, has a 12 year old son from a marriage 10 years ago of a white women. Iam 11 years younger than him. We have been together for 1. I have a son that is not his biological, but he loves him as his own and is his dad and calls him his son. Wants to change his last name to his. He also has plans for us to move to Campeche in 2 years. Iam definitely willing. And says he wants to marry me before we go.
Well, my question is. On Facebook , he has an x girlfriend from 7 years ago that they dated for 3 months. They broke up cause she didn't like his son. They are still friends, they went to school together when they were little. She's pretty. They still talk, but he doesn't like to talk about it, he won't bring her up cause he thinks I will get jealous.
I've showed jealousy in the past towards this, which could be the reason why Iam no longer like that and am working towards a completely an open, honest relationship. Talk openly. Iam just wondering , should I be worried about him talking to this girl? It is his x girlfriend. It just is making me insecure because he hides it.
He has a lot of girls that are friends in mexico. I have never been with him around a girl he considers a friend as he has none here. I've met his friends here. I've met the family he has here as well. It probably is just me being insecure, but I do not talk to any of my x's because I know it puts doubt in the mind. Also iam the same person that relied above. Boyfriend from Veracruz. He calls his mom almost everyday. Is a girl that he is friends with is more pretty and thinner than myself I just am trying to get down the thought process.
I think it is completely innocent. But I need reassurence. Iam scared to bring it up as he may feel iam having a jealousy problem, which iam not. If it's innocent. It is.. I've excepted he gas friends that are girls , I just don't know how they think of them. Because here in the states. It is rare for a guy to have girls that are friends without wanting or thinking something more. And as that guy stated above, the mexican culture is horny hahaha I see that.
How come? The city of Mexico is the most liberal in the country, and many men there are against machismo; unfortunately they go to the other extreme, and many of them look effeminate. I am Mexican woman, I prefer a thousand times to the men of the North, from places like Sonora, Monterrey, Sinaloa, Chihuahua, Tamaulipas, the men there are very macho and unlike other Mexicans they are more handsome too. So never try to change a man from these cities, since "they are men", not mangina.
Dating Latinos is different than dating Americans in many ways. In a simple sense, it is basically the belief and practice of excessive masculinity in Latino culture. It can be as simple as men believing they should always pay and take care of their families, or it can be as extreme as treating women like second-class citizens. As a super independent American girl, I like to earn my own money, pay for my own things, voice my opinion, and basically do anything a man can do, should I so desire.
I am also not overly romantic, so being doted on is not really my thing most of the time. This did not work when dating in Argentina. Down the street from my apartment in Argentina, there was a video store where a cute guy worked. For months, this video store clerk would googly eye me, try to chat me up, etc — but he would never ask me out. Just when I was about to ask him, he finally found the courage. On our first date, I teased him about taking so long and told him I had planned on asking him out the next time I came in.
I am so very glad you did not do this. I also struggled with never being able to pay. Learning from what video store guy had taught me, I found that offering to pay for my part of the meal or, God forbid, all of it, would be horribly insulting and uncomfortable for any guy taking me out. The arrival of the bill became a painfully awkward moment for me on every date. At least reach for it slowly with a fake intent!
I lived alone in the US and I moved to Argentina alone. I am a big girl. I walk alone, sometimes even in the dark. I do not need a man to protect me.

Pinche Wey! All you have to do is ask nicely. And yes, have you read this awesome article about how to take the perfect travel selfie? Selfies are awesome yo! It will be difficult for you to date someone else. You will always compare. They will treat you the same and that will make it harder for you to forget them. I am trying to move forward.

That contradicts the first fuckin sentence. You sir are trash.. Please ese, East Los and not even on your wave length. Even though this list tries to speak well of mexicans, I find it altogether racist and stereotype promoting. Sucre from Prison Break is not even mexican, he is Puerto Rican. I know this article is purposely overly sweet to the point of being cloying but, seriously?
They can, however, tell you that their mother cooks better than you. Every time you cook for them. Even though I am Mexican, I totally agree that we are trying to be nice by not saying no. If someone asks us to do something we know we are not going to do, we simply say yes and then we will not show. It was very frustrating even for myself when I lived in the US, because we are not very committed, but it is part of the ancient culture some regions specially in southern Mexico may have.
But for the rest of us, specially living in big cities, cooking can become an almost sacred time. God, I was asking myself if there was still someone with a bit of clarity or knowledge of Mexico making comments on this page…. WTF dude? NO as a mexican man maybe you are so fricking spoiled my mother taught me how to cook and i cook, i threat ladies as ladies not maids just like my other brothers and my dad.
Cheers to everyone. I am Mexican and Puerto Rican. Although I will agree that this is some what short sighted I would give the author leniency. There is no Black and White both literally complexion and symbolically. What is amazing about the Latin culture is its diversity. This is something hard for even a Hispanic to imagine.
In fact you may see a person with Middle Eastern clothes and think he is from the Middle East when in fact he could be a Mexican from Mexico. However the authors account of a Mexican though slightly exaggerated is not that far off. My advice to the author is that if a Mexican swept you off your feet that easily then the next Latino will probably turn your world upside down.
You are just one Mexican.. This article is on point. Folks, please. This is a light-hearted and light-headed look at the topic. This is the worst article I have ever had the misfortune of reading. Not only did it fetishize an entire nationality, but it also lacked proper diction. Gracias por el articulo, me dio gusto leer que alguien siente afecto por nuestra nacionalidad.

Open your eyes. There is a lot to be seen. Great article, as a Mexican there is one thing that is a constant for us, we SURE love to argue and disagree with almost everything. You can see it right here, arguing about eating guacamole everyday or not, arguing about how serious, funny, or not this article is, when fact is, this article does not intend to be factual, its just a fun description of your experience.
Some people is taking this article too deep, relax, yes there are some stereotypes, but nothing I felt offended by. We are not perfect, but thanks for the nice list! I think making sweeping generalizations about a complex culture and lumping all mexican men into 10 easily defined certainties based on 2 relationships is irresponsible, racist, and completely without merit.
You guys are funny. Im glad this chick had a great experiance. I dont think it has much to do with being from mexico but more like his life experiances. From reading all these posts everyone is stuck on guacamole and feeling this is racist. I think its more on each persons experiance with the people they have been around.
