Dating an argentinian man
Whilst he might be flaky at times, if he does care he does put some effort into the dating.
Most Argentinians are primarily of European descent, which separates them from other Latin American countries where European and Indian cultures are more mixed.
Cheating culture is RIFE and a lot of men will lie through their teeth to pull it off. Argentine women love foreign blokes though so you shouldn't have too many problems (thats if you can cope with the hysteria and jealousy!
Be careful and ask questions (not introducing you to family, lots of nights out with the boys, working late, and never going back to his place should raise alarm bells)..please be persistent with the asking (or introduce him to Argy friends for the once-over).
Although Argentina's official language is Spanish, Argentinean Spanish is different from the Spanish spoken in Spain.
In fact in some ways it sounds more like Italian than Spanish.
Most of the time, this isn't really the case which means that an unsuspecting and amorous expat could end up falling quite hard and getting her heart broken a zillion times..I don't think they're being cruel, its just a cultural thing.
Unlike in England, the man will not pull the reins, so it's up to us women to maintain a clear head and put things into perspective if we want to achieve anything long-term with an Argentine man. Argentine women are very jealous and posessive and after 4 years living here, I'm beginning to see why. As for the men..do all the chasing here, they pick up the bills etc..very macho. And whilst Argentinians often get passionate much more quickly than the average American and throw praise around like it was confetti, they don’t necessarily mean it at the same depth as the American guy you’ve dated for two months who finally manages to croak out that he quite likes you.It’s not them being insincere, it’s just part of the culture.He will hold doors for you, not because he thinks you are an inferior creature, but because it’s tradition.You should be wary if he tries to invite you to his home too soon for “dinner” or doesn’t take much care arranging the dates.And you have to know that the “I love you” after two weeks of dating is not the same “I love you” as after six months of dating. Maybe they’ve watched too many soap operas or their Latin temper is as heated as the sun, but Argentinians can be the jealous types and they don’t mind starting a fight over it. so I thought I knew flakiness first hand – people will promise you anything and not deliver.
