Hispanics are among the fastest growing minority in the US. Hispanics has grown by 60% for the last decade alone and they are continuously increasing. In every state, it’s almost impossible not to meet someone that has a Hispanic origin. Because of their proximity to the country, they are able to easily immigrate to this country and become a citizen. Their influence in popular culture and entertainment is also invaluable as different personalities with Hispanic origin continue to dazzle us with their artistry and performance.
Along with the increase of Hispanics in the country, there is also a gradual increase of interracial couples with one of them with a Hispanic origin. The country has grown to accept the presence of Hispanics and has made considerable adjustments especially in the language. It’s often rare to find a government institution or office that doesn’t have a Spanish version of their documents. When you ask for help online or over the phone, large companies offer an option for a Spanish speaking agent for speedier processes.
It is also most likely that you’ll be dating someone Hispanic. They are a very romantic people and they could easily woo you with their words and their actions.
Physical Expression of Admiration
Hispanics are very affectionate and they are not afraid of showing it even in their first date. They can talk to you about romance which is really sweet but you’ll be able to discuss other things as well, which is really nice. Most of the Hispanics today are Americanized so they are very familiar with your culture. In your end, you’re still trying to adjust the way their express their admiration to you.
During a conversation, you’ll be gazing a lot in their eyes. When they talk or listen to you, they will always be looking straight to your eye. It’s not to intimidate but it’s their way of telling you they are willing to listen (or at least pretend to) no matter what they say. If your date has beautiful eyes, you’re in luck as you’ll be gazing at it all night long.
Also expect that your date will be very close to you physically. Aside from looking at you straight in the eye, they are never afraid to get close to you and speak in front of you – usually your face are only inches apart if he or she wanted to say something very romantic. But take caution since they are not approaching for kiss but they only get close to emphasize something romantic.
Hispanics are very religious. Most of the Hispanics are Roman Catholics with great devotion to the saints and angels. You’ll most likely find a large cross, statue of the saint or Jesus in their home. They will always participate in different religious activities. If your date falls on a Sunday, you’ll most likely be invited to attend a mass. They will have no problems in showing their devotion which is beautiful because they are able to adapt to other cultures while staying true to who they really are.
Because of the Hispanic’s deep religious convictions, you’ll most likely be with someone traditional. But more often than not, you’ll find their tradition very appealing because their tradition is often geared towards respect of the other people. Men will always be at the services of their women – from the simple opening of the door to taking extra care of you if you think you are in trouble. Their strong religious convictions will also show their ease in being with other religions. Hispanics at an advanced age might not be ok for their kids to date outside the religion but most young Hispanics today are ok with religious differences as long as their religion is also respected.
Hispanics are known for their strong family ties. By tradition, men will leave when they have reached the legal age while women stay at home with their family until they found someone who will be marrying them.
But here in US, Hispanic women will not be staying with their parents anymore until they get married, but like men, they will still stay for a year or two with their parents after they have finished school just to catch up on old times. Anything that will happen to them in their adult life, they make sure their parents know about it. Sometimes, there are young Hispanics who opted to live with their parents even when they are old enough to move out. The reason for this is that they are now the ones who will be supporting their parents as their parents have taken cared of them in the past.
Contact with the extended family is also common. Hispanics value close family-ties and will always stick with their family members especially in times of need.
Dating Men vs. Women Hispanics
When you’re dating a male Hispanic, expect to be really close to your date. They are never afraid to get close to you and talk to you about romance and even being physically intimate without being vulgar. They are respectful of women and will make sure their women are very comfortable. If you get intimate or romantically linked to a Hispanic, you’ll most likely meet his parents really soon.
On the other hand, female Hispanics are a little bit more traditional. They will not easily be open to different vulgar ideas. If you are not Hispanic yourself, don’t try that physical closeness because it might be thought of as a sexual advancement and not a sign of being romantic. The only time you may be doing this is when your date makes the first move. Don’t worry, they are not afraid of showing their affection but you have to be patient because they will try your patience. Like Hispanic men, expect to meet the family soon if you chose to go to the next level of your relationship and go beyond dating.
Hispanics are very romantic and they know it. They will show it to you which might sweep you off your feet. Their religiosity and close family ties are also traditions that should be appreciated.
