At the time, my country (the Philippines) have adapted a lot of telenovelas from Mexico and I only relied on Thalia’s Fernando Jose as an icon on the undying Maria Mercedes series.
When I was 16, I had no idea about what Mexicans are all about.
I wasn’t deeply inlove with these dudes to be honest, but their unique ways are not too easy to forget. Think of it as a bear taking control of your body (but remember, biting is only allowed if you agree to it)! ” Seriously, when they say this, they are not trying to get into your pants (at least not the first time even though it happens). Although most of them are fluent in English, they have the habit of randomly murmuring in Spanish while looking at you, watching you sleep. They will treat you the same and that will make it harder for you to forget them.
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.
I agree, but I am the type of person who speaks my mind and it is hard for me to hold back, because of the disrespect we receive.
With this being said there are certain parts of the world such as the US in which American customs have somewhat worked to relax the Mexican dating rules.
However, there are still a lot of Mexican people in Mexico as well as in the US that still expect their customs to be followed.
The women are taught to be much more soft-spoken and submissive while the men are the dominant figures in the home.
This is one reason that you may notice a lot of fighting or arguing happening in mixed relationships, generally when the woman is white or American and the man is Mexican.
