Also I'm part Colombian and certain members of my family have very low opinions of Mexicans. Most short dark males come from South America, Guatemala, etc. My Aunt brought home a black man, my grandfather flipped his lid. I don't think that's true at all. I've dates one Hispanic and regreted it after 2 years of physical and verbal abuse. I'm a polite 43 year old white guy, and I get dirty looks even when I hold a door open for a hispanic woman.
Lupita is always loving sweetheart! I've dealt with stereotypes they put on people with with white skin and I've dealt with racism as well. However, unlike my parents who were raised in communities that had only white people, I spent my childhood years in a community with a lot of Black people, then as a teen lived in a community that was mainly East Asian and Hispanic with some white, I then finished my teen years in a place with a high Polynesian population, but with a large white population. I'm married to a man who grew up 4000 miles away from me. I guess I must be intimidating or something because white guys just don't approach me. That's not true, Asian guys love latin girls. When you see them in the street, we might think the guy is white, and if he's a tanned Latino then sometimes we might just assume he's a tanned white guy.
I've seen latinas dating white guys and other races too, but I do believe most of them date their men. They don't necessarily need to have all of those physical attributes at once but just having one of those characteristics is good enough to attract any Hispanic woman. Specially if he dares to come alone to Mexico. They will make you work for their attention but speaking from experience it's well worth the extra effort. I liked the random Spanish words that she would throw into conversation.
When I ask my other latina friends their opinion in men, they find white men attractive too but it can be difficult to date outside your race and will many times gravitate towards latino counterparts. All the guys that approached Dos and I were latino. And you probably are a nice guy but sometimes people judge people by race like if they are all alone walking down the streets, I do it sometimes and I feel bad about it. But we would live in Mexico, at her home town. Most women prefer their own race though but that doesn't mean you could never go out with a Hispanic woman if that is what you like. I don't discriminate against any guy because of his race, ethnicity or skin color. I said I felt that it may be true in some cases, and I was just asking a question.
I do not generalize based on a couple of problems. He can't possibly know what all women of certain group like. Our different backgrounds in culture never ever came between us and to this day, our break-up was the biggest mistake in my life. I've always been very interested and respectful of Latin culture and many of my white friends are too. But you know what, many of the generalizations the Latina ladies here are making are true, in my opinion. Some do and some don't it's an individual thing.
. Back in 1990, this was still somewhat unusual in Switzerland, specially out in the province. Unfortunately in my experience, I'm going to have to agree with your coworker. I'm not entirely sure it's accurate, but perhaps it might have something to do with family dynamics? I would not trade her for for any other women out in the world - Lupita is the best! Having said that, I have noticed there is a sort of gringo stock character that is quite prevalent in Latin-American produced films and television. Usually, this character is a man, American, slightly effeminate and oblivious to Latin-American culture. I myself have seen such situations but it has been unfortunate that they won't go for it! Mind you: my grandfather was Native American.
The thing is, not all Latinos are the same, I'm Latina woman and I don't like salsa, cumbia or ranchera music genre I like rock, bring this to the table because is the same with everything, is all about what the people like, not from where the people are. Most of those women, though, have been Latina. I am of the opinion that those two languages are Martian dialects in disguise. However if the Latino coworker you were talking to is a male, you have to realize that many guys do not want men of other races dating 'their' women so sometimes they will tell you discouraging things of women of that race to keep you from dating them. If you see all three together, they do not even seem to be sisters. This reminds me of what my grandma says.
I can not tell how attractive that is! My best friend is Mexican and her boyfriend is Mexican but mixed with a lot of white he looks white. It is so much easier to meet other people. Control, power, likeness to someone for there own gain and looks is not true love. The woman from Chile was the the most beautiful I have ever been with, inside and out. In fact, in many cases, Latino machismo seems more like a mask for little man's syndrome than any sort of genuine confidence. For example: if a man looks at their woman they don't jump and immediately beat up the guy.
Yeah I hate when people talk about sticking to their own kind. Unless this question means specifically why she doesn't have a brown mixed-race 'mestizo' boyfriend. Their idea of the perfect date may just be watching a football game at a dive bar. I went the dating forum discussing whether If attractive Latina likes to date white or black men. Of course not all latina women are like that. Of course, not every Latin women has the same preferences but, from what I've seen, I'd have to say most do. A Latino male entering the personal zone of a white European female, however innocently, might be interpreted as too much too soon too fast, and result in the girl withdrawing to give themselves more space.
