Do you have your eyes on the Latina at work or class? We don’t blame you, who wouldn’t want to! Let’s talk about it.

Dating a Latina

Dating a Latina is unlike dating in any other culture. It’s often full of fun.  Latinas have a very rich culture and often follow strict traditions. This means that you’ll undoubtedly be pulled into this rich and fun experience too. Dating is a huge part of their traditional culture also, but expect it to be a little bit more epic.

What could come as a surprise, is the fact that they’re much more feisty than you’d think. They’re extremely passionate people, yet very serious. It’s the perfect mix, in our opinion. Whatever they may set their mind to, rest assured that they do it with an abundant amount of passion. This can include their career, relationships and parenthood. 

Consider Latinas to be the epicenter of fun and love; it’s as if you’re dating a goddess herself. If you have your eyes on a Latina or are currently dating one, then this article is for you! Plus, who knows, you might have the chance to learn a little Spanish! Let’s look at the good and not-so-good aspects of dating a Latina, as like everything in life, there are pros and cons.

Pros of Dating a Latina

You’ll Experience A Rich Culture 

Dating a Latina

Their culture is extremely rich; one of the richest in the world, in fact. Every aspect of their culture involves so much more than the typical basic lifestyle of the west. This could be anything from dancing, exploration, cooking, family events, holidays, and much more. We think it’s safe to say that if you plan on dating a Latina, you’ll probably never have a dull moment again.

They’re Hard Workers

Latinas also have a reputation as very hard-workers with excellent ethics. Their culture and family are both major factors in this. Often, they would have been raised by parents who most likely worked from dawn to sunset to provide for their family. In their culture, it’s taught that they must work for what they want and need. They’re never handed anything easily. You can also see this in academics, like college.

They Have Great Food

Latin cooking

Tacos, Tamales, Pupusas and many other cuisines is something that comes natural in the kitchen for many Latinas. Latinas are more often than not very good cooks, because a vast majority of them grew up in the kitchen learning how to cook with their family — sometimes a large one. Their brothers, sisters, uncles, parents and other family members alike likely taught them a thing or two on how to make a standout dish, so if you plan on dating a Latina, this is certainly something to look forward to!

They’re Passionate 

This shouldn’t be a surprise, but as previously mentioned, Latinas are some of the most passionate individuals in the world. Everything they do receives a hundred percent of dedication. This includes relationships, family, school, food, hobbies and others alike. Latinas are about quality of life, which is obviously a very desirable personality! 

They’re Honest

Honesty is key when it comes to Latinas. They’re passionate and dedicated people with strong work ethics, so honesty is something they expect both from themselves and from others. Imagine trying so hard in life, only to be surrounded by dishonest people. They don’t play around with that! So if honesty is a strong suit of yours, then chances are you’re already one step ahead to making it official.


Cons of Dating A Latina

They Don’t Take Nothin’

As you might guess, Latinas are extremely capable and strong people. Each and every aspect of their life is done in an exceedingly high amount of passion, dedication and power. Although they definitely know how to have a good time, honesty is an important policy to them. If you ever plan on pulling a fast one on them, expect to be fired back in an abundance of payback! They don’t like messing around when it comes to honesty and integrity.. So stay on the straight and narrow if you plan on day a Latina. (We actually love this aspect, it’s hard to not like Latinas!)

They’re Not All Chefs

It may come as a surprise that not all Latinas are top-notch chefs, but they’re not. Don’t misunderstand, though. Many of them are indeed fantastic cooks, and easily pass up the neighborhood chef. But you can’t expect them all to be a five star cook, maybe they’re just better at other things. We get it; it’d be a dream come true to come home to an authentic Spanish dish in the afternoon!

She’ll Probably Be Late

While this doesn’t define all Latinas, you should expect some of them to occasionally be late arriving to an event you’re having, for example. Latinas are extremely family-oriented, so it doesn’t matter if you’re waiting on a trip to Mars together. What matters is that she gets to say goodbye to each and every person she’s currently with for the day that’s important to her… or gets to dress herself up to leave. Latinas are about quality over all else!


Final Thoughts 

Dating a Latina is not like a normal relationship. It’s like a fierce hurricane — except the destruction part, of course. Their culture adds so much to the relationship that we actually invite you to try it out! It may be a little different to what you’re used to, but it’s definitely a desirable experience, to say the least. 

The food is amazing most times, and the family is almost always involved, which is a good thing. Not to mention the culture is fun, rich and a bit of a different vibe than what most of the west has to offer. If you’re looking for a passionate, dedicated, strong-willed, hardworking person who very well may also have exceptional cooking skills and the ability, to be honest bringing along one of the most desirable cultures in the world, date a Latina.

They dislike laziness and want someone who is up for the challenge. Latinas are feisty and fierce, yet beautiful creatures. So be prepared to impress and go above and beyond for a return that’ll beat essentially every other nationality on earth. Also, expect to be invited to see the family a little sooner than you would otherwise. Latinas love having their family to meet you to see what they think.
