Dating a latin man
Will an invite back to your hotel lead to a night of passion or a slap in the face and a condemnation to the fires of hell for your sinning ways?
Latin America, though, is rightly renowned for its fiery passions and beautiful people, and to miss out on this side of the region’s culture through fear is far more unforgivable than embarrassing yourself with culturally inappropriate body language.
“With girls here, if they’re really interested – it’s obvious,” said James.
However, once you note that interest, it’s crucial to act on it without delay or you risk losing out, he added. That doesn’t mean be aggressive or pushy, say sleazy things to them or invite them straight back to your room but if you’re interested the best thing is just go straight over and say ‘can I buy you a drink?
’ game can be a lot easier to play in Latin America.
Love, whether a life-long partnership or a night-long fling, is never easy.
Throw in a language barrier and culture gap and you’re lost in a strange new game with strange new rules.
But if a guy did that in the States I’d be like ‘you’re pathetic’.” Once contact has been made with the object of your desires, you are running a whole new cultural gauntlet – one in which body language can play a bigger role that what you actually say.
The key differences for travelers from more ‘distant’ cultures are in the Latin approach to eye contact and physical contact – lots of both.
