When I was 16, I had no idea about what Mexicans are all about.
He was one of my inspirations in traveling South America. Okay, I am officially naming my first son after him.’ This guy is the love of my life!
Sometimes I wonder, “Do Mexican men ever lie to women? You might not understand it, but I’m sure you’ll get to memorize the exact words because it reflects sincerity. You might even be forced to tell them, “Please, don’t be too nice.
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. Although many of them are fluent in English, they have the habit of randomly murmuring in Spanish while looking at you, watching you sleep. Though they don’t always agree with the amount of selfies you have on Instagram, they will always say “Yes” when you want to take one. Selfies don’t make them feel emasculated and that’s a quality of a real man. But let me tell you that it never ends badly with Mexicans — a relationship with them always ends on a good note regardless of what you’ve been through.
Angela* is a 26-year-old Mexican-American women who grew up in San Diego and swore her whole life that she would never settle down with a Latino man.
But when she found herself falling for Sebastian*, she had a change of heart.
The way he loved Maricruz in those final episodes (she was pregnant, if you remember) made me think that “one day, I will have my own papi too.” And I did. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and You-Know-Who made me believe in the goodness of men. It’s “I like you” or “I don’t like you.” And yes, asking a Mexican man if you look fat in that dress will always end in a Greek tragedy. When I came to Argentina, I started eating Doritos with a power hot sauce all over it and my friends were like, “Doritos with hot sauce? ” I smiled and whispered to myself, “the Mexicans.” A bottle of hot sauce will always serve as their icon. But let me tell you that it never ends bad with Mexicans — ending a relationship with them is always a good note, regardless of what you’ve been through.
They will turn your round irises into heart shapes. It may look like they’re just randomly mixing stuff in a bowl, but in reality, they are brewing perfection. And when you try to ask for the recipe, they don’t have it. Why they include the avocado’s seed is another mystery. You will want to hug them even if it’s 39 freaking degrees outside…which is not that uncommon since in most areas of Mexico it’s always either spring or summer. They ask this because they prefer to cook than eat out (and not only because of the money).
They all seemed liked players to me — my cousins included. I watched my closest cousin cheat regularly on his girlfriend of 10 years. I have one female cousin who dated a Latino guy for three years, but when she got pregnant, he left. They were engaged when she found out he got his ex-girlfriend pregnant.
She broke off the engagement, and he married his pregnant ex.
But don’t blame them, it’s just part of their funny banter and sense of humor. Jokes are randomly thrown and it will make you laugh your heart out. Hearing a Mexican trying to speak with an Indian accent is probably one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard. 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.
