Guest Post: The Secret to Hooking Up With Latin Men

The Secret to Hooking Up with Latin Men: There is no Secret


Miranda Santiago

I don’t know if it’s the winter blues or something in the water, but recently I’ve been getting a lot of questions from some of my girlfriends about how to hook up with “fiery Latino men”. There is something that most women love about the dark hair and tan skin—points added if he speaks with an accent. I have found that I am not as attracted to the Enrique Iglesias’s or the Antonio Banderas’s that lurk in the minds of most women, but, being a Latina, my friends think that I know the ins and outs of the Latino Man’s mind. And I do. But I’ll tell you a little secret; it has nothing to do with anybody being Latin, and everything to do with them being men.

I’ll tell you right now that nabbing that Latin hunk isn’t any harder than nabbing any other guy. Why is this? Because they are all guys! Now, I’m not saying that all guys are the same, at all. They’re not. What I’m saying is that you can’t look at a guy, see that he’s a Latino, and have a magic formula on how to hook up with him. It doesn’t work that way just because somebody is Latino, just like it doesn’t work that way just because somebody is black or white.

I’ve looked at a couple of different pieces of “advice” that I’ve found on the internet. One site says to:

  • Dress sexy
  • Smell good
  • Learn how to dance
  • Have a good sense of humor

Another site says to:

  • Hang out with more Hispanic people
  • Hang out in areas where Hispanic people hang out

There are other sites that get more into the stereotypical side of Latino dating, like how you should start acting more “fiery” and let them chase you, but I’m not going to even go into that because stereotypes are ridiculous. What I am going to point out is that the sites above are not offering any new information. There is nothing about dressing sexy, smelling good, dancing, or having a good sense of humor that is specific to Latinos. These are all things you should be doing anyway, regardless of whether or not your hook up is Hispanic. The second list, on the other hand, is simply telling women to go hang out where Latinos hang out. Why? Because that’s all a woman really needs to do!

The best piece of advice that I can give a woman looking to get with a Latino is to just be yourself. Use whatever tactics you use on any other guy. There’s no big secret on how to hook up with Latino guys, so stop reading into it so much.

Latino, Asian, whatever, the thing to remember is that a man is a man. And if you want a man there’s really only one thing you have to do: GO GET HIM!

  1. It’s so overrated when it’s your race. Meaning, since you’re a Latina, you most likely don’t see what the hype is about with Latin men since you’ve most likely dated them.

    However, for non Latinas,se quisieran enterar si sierve.
