What you need to know before dating a Latina
We have all heard the stereotypes about Latina girls, from their loud and aggressive personalities to their sexual prowess. Having dated a Latino babe for a while, I can honestly say that some of these are just outrageous misconceptions.
Let’s see what you should expect when dating a Latina, like a beautiful Colombian girl.
Latinas are super romantic and passionate
It is one of the stereotypes I was very glad to find out was true. Latina girls are passionate about whatever they do, from their work to their love lives.
With the latter, these beautiful women stand out with their openness to taking the initiative and being romantic.
She will cook great food
One of the best perks of dating a Latina woman is all the awesome food you get to eat. These women love to cook and are good at it. Heaven knows how much delicious pulled pork and how many tamales I got to enjoy in the name of casual chill evenings.
She has powerful emotions
There is this common belief that Latina women are hot-headed and volatile. That is an unfair assumption.
It’s true that Latinas have very powerful emotions and are never shy about expressing themselves. However, they have far better control of these emotions and reactions than they ever get credit for.
Her body is hyper-sexualized
When most people think of Latina women, they think of these unattainable, sensual goddesses with tempting curves and breathtakingly beautiful faces. Again, this is not very far from the truth as there is no denying the beauty in South and Central American women.
However, they are so much more than sex symbols. I was surprised to learn how reserved and conservative many these women are, with most only showing their sensual side to their partner.
Latina women LOVE their families and friends
When you date a Latina woman, you date her whole clan from close friends to distant relatives. These women have very close relationships with their loved ones, and it is difficult not to be roped in.
The good thing is that most of these families and friend groups are very welcoming as long as you treat their girl well.
She has a great sense of humor
One of the most refreshing things you will discover with Latinas is that they have a great sense of humor. They are not afraid of a little dark humor or even corny dad jokes. They might even crack a few of their own.
She likes to take care of things and people
Latina women are very nurturing. You will find her instinctively taking care of you and catering to you as this is how they know how to show their love and affection.
How to get a Latina to Like You
Latina girls can be very picky. However, if you know what makes them tick, you shouldn’t have too hard of a time getting and keeping the attention of one of these beauties. Here are a few tips that I have found to come in handy.
Ditch the Latina stereotypes
She has heard them all, from assumptions about her sexual nature to being labeled hot-headed. Don’t bring it up, and by no means should you assume that she is anything like what you have heard.
Instead, give her a chance to get to show you who she is as an individual. You will be surprised at how unique and special they all are.
Making an effort to bridge the language gap by learning her language shows you are really invested in the relationship and genuinely interested in her culture.
I wasn’t fluent when I first went to South America, but I could see the difference a hello or a compliment in Spanish made when approaching women.
Show interest in the Latino culture
In addition to the language, show her you are interested in learning more about her culture. Ask her questions, participate in traditions she cares about, and research on your own. It not only shows your commitment but also helps you better understand your Latina partner.

Learn how to dance
Dancing is just one of those things you cannot avoid when dating a Latina. If you are anything like my left-footed self, this might make you uncomfortable at first. However, all you need to do is step out of your comfort zone and let her teach you how to live a little on the dancefloor.
Be patient and don’t rush her
Latina women are very independent and love to do things when they feel comfortable and ready. The last thing you want is to push her to do something she is not ready for just yet.
Pushing her too far too fast is truly the easiest way to lose your Latina babe. So, whether it is taking the relationship to the next step or even hurrying out for a date, you need to master the art of patience.
Be ready to be a part of her large family
It is never too early to meet the family when dating a Latina.
I was invited to a family barbeque a few dates into my relationship, and I was so shocked. However, after the initial discomfort wore off, I realized just how amazing it is to be a part of that side of her life.
It also helps a lot that it is the norm there, and the families are usually very open and loving.
Respect her beliefs and her religion
Latina women are quite religious. Whether you end up with a radical Christian or a more liberal one, you will have to respect her beliefs and values if you want things to work out.
Latinas don’t like to feel pressured or to feel like they have to choose between you and their beliefs. And if you push them into a corner, it is highly unlikely that you will end up winning that fight.
Be a gentleman and treat her right
Latina cougars respond very well to being treated with love and affection. So be a gentleman and spoil her rotten if and when you can. It will make her feel special, and it will do wonders for your relationship.
Final thoughts on dating a Latina
There is a lot for you to look forward to when dating a Latina woman, from their sensual nature to all the amazing food and fun dances you will have together.
I have found that the most awesome thing about being with these women is that they will always surprise you in the relationship.
Fortunately for you, you now have all the information you need to understand what you are getting yourself into and how to make things work.
