The word “machismo” has a few different meanings and connotations. In the 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. Honestly, I wasn’t ready for either end of the spectrum. 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.
Machismo also includes a sort of protector/caretaker complex. 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. However, every guy I went on a date with insisted that I walk on the inside of the sidewalk, away from the street, and wanted to walk me to my destination, even when I didn’t want them too. I know some of you girls are out there, facepalming at my inability to accept chivalry, but sometimes it was just irritating or weird. Best-case scenario, I didn’t want to make them walk out of their way and/or I wanted to walk alone. Worst-case scenario, I really didn’t want the guy to know where I lived. I also found that many guys would order for me at restaurants. Let me just say right now, if an American dude tried to tell me what I want to drink or eat, I’d get up and leave. However, in Argentina I had to try to remind myself that, sometimes, the guy actually thought he was being sweet and taking care of me. Either way, the machismo style simply did not allow for me to get out of this kind of stuff very easily.

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. He stopped dead in his tracks, stared at me and said “Oh no. I am so very glad you did not do this.” Apparently, this would have been so embarrassing and weird for him, that he would have turned me down, even though he liked me. What?!
I&rsquo ll not blame Mexican women for the entirety of these stereotypes, but they do share a big part of the guilt with some of their habits. For instance, there is a big difference for them between being ready to go out and actually being capable of doing so. When a Mexican girl tells you she&rsquo s all set, she&rsquo s only acknowledging your patience. If she hasn&rsquo t decided which shoes she&rsquo s wearing or hasn&rsquo t picked up her ever-faithful handbag, she&rsquo s far from ready.
Mexican dating can cover the gamut. You can meet sophisticated, intelligent, and accomplished women in Mexico City, often referred to as "Chilangas". The term is sometimes used in a derogatory fashion by other Mexicans, jealous of the sophistication and urbanity of their Mexico City neighbors. But, if you're a man looking for a great woman from Mexico, you will definitely want to check out some bright and beautiful Chilangas.
You are wrong, you're targeting Hispanics who are mixed with both Latino/Asian culture compared to those who are not.
No they dont have similar family orientations. You're basically talking about mixed racial individuals, so its biased to say they are similar.
I can tell you this, as an Asian, our culture is different from theirs and if you have both then you are exposed to both cultures under one household that doesn't mean they are similar if you are both Latino AND Asian.
And some online link address doesn't back up those points.
For the most part, the man asks for the first date, though this has been changing in recent years. In general, Mexicans like to dress up for their dates, which typically consist of going to the movies or a restaurant. The man usually pays the bill, and the woman may be offended if she is asked to pay her half. To make a good impression, a man will do little things like open the door for his girlfriend or buy her presents.
Mexico's visa laws are welcoming to all. If you want, you can easily visit for a few days, stay a few weeks, or take up residence for months or years at a time. The vast variety of foreigners in search of Mexican brides makes for an interesting population of expats. So, when you're not out in search of you're a Mexican girlfriend, you will find a wonderful group of friendly expats from all over the world.
As a result of heavy tourism, the well-traveled parts of Mexico will produce many English-speaking women. On the other hand, if you venture into the less-touristed areas, you'll need to have a bit of Spanish. But no worries, many of the women you'll meet as potential Mexican brides will be making efforts to learn English. They know it's the language of the world and that they need it, whether for romance or their work life.
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. Every part of my said, “offer to pay! You’re being so rude! At least reach for it slowly with a fake intent!” I always had to restrain. The few times I didn’t, I noted the guys reaction and regretted my “rebellious” act of independence.
One of the most popular destinations for men seeking Mexican brides is Guadalajara. This beautiful city is known as the city of eternal spring. National Geographic ranked Guadalajara's climate as the second most perfect in the world (Atenas, Costa Rica was #6). Daytime temperatures in Guadalajara are typically in the high 75's or low 85's and night time temperatures are in the 65's. Mexican singles in all these different locales are constantly on the prowl for good foreign men.
Very interesting. I don t date women lol. But this was a very interesting read. & most of the stories are prob city girls.. Not all Japanese women are so open like that. I still have like a good half of my Family still living in Japan today. The rest of my family I have living in the States. My relatives usually settled down with a Japanese American Men or Women. I think mostly because it s easier and tradition. I married outside of my race & so did my Father. And I m happy to be mixed Japanese American.
OP what kind of bias is this shit. Are you kidding? Lmao. Every second example reads: A jamaican man. give me a fucking break. The majority of your examples talk about a non-white foreigner when most Japanese women who date foreigners date white men. You should strive to provide an answer to your own questions which correspond to actual statistics. Now you have all foreigners second-guessing themselves when in fact the girl may actually be subtly racist towards black people (which is very well a fact). This is comedy, not commentary.
