Are you planning a trip to Mexico in the near future and want a cute Mexican gf to date during the trip? Perhaps I could be of service to you!
I’ve been to Mexico several times during my travel adventures as a remote freelancer, and I’ve had the privilege of exploring much of the country. I’ve also spent my time in Mexico with a few of the lovely and passionate ladies I’ve had the luxury of meeting.
Now, I’m here to pass on what I know to you. Here are the top things you need to know if you want to have a Mexican girlfriend.
Where can you find your next Mexican girlfriend?
Online Dating in Mexico
Do you want to know the easiest way to find a girlfriend from Mexico?
That’s right, online dating.
As cliché as it may sound at this point, dating sites and apps like AmoLatina, Tinder, and Badoo honestly provide some of the most convenient methods finding and dating Mexican women. One of the best things about these apps is that you can set up dates before your plane even lands.
AmoLatina is an international dating site and the best choice if you want a serious relationship with a Mexican gf. The ladies on here are usually looking specifically for foreign Western men. That doesn’t mean you’ll automatically score, but your chances on here are at least decent. It is the most famous dating site in Latin America.
Tinder is an old standby. While effective for finding Mexican girlfriends, the girls here are a bit flakier than on AmoLatina. If you want to get a date or two out of it, plan on setting up three or four, if you know what I mean.
Like Tinder, Badoo is likewise more oriented towards those who want a short-term fling or one-time hookup. It also has more free features than Tinder (like the Encounters feature), which is a plus.
Mexican Cupid is a dating site for both Mexicans and people visiting Mexico. The portal currently has over 350,000 members, of whom around 60-70% are men. About 40% of members come from Mexico, and the rest from the United States.
Most users are interested in more serious relationships instead of hookups. You’ll find members of all ages here, although most active profiles fall in the 25-45 age range.
Gold membership starts at $11.25 for 12 months. Purchasing a plan enables you to send messages to other members, comment on members’ photos, read received messages, and even go into an incognito mode.
Unique features include:
Cupid Tag – allows you to “tag” yourself by choosing words and phrases that describe you the best (i.e., loyal, animal lover, etc.). Your profile will show up when someone searches for these words.
Favorites List – lets you add interesting members to a personal list and get their attention (they’ll get a notification that they’ve been shortlisted).
Mexican Cupid also highly values the security of its users. The site does not sell your data, and your photos and personal info won’t appear in the search engine results either. Furthermore, canceling your Mexican Cupid membership will erase all of the data that you had on it as well.
Don’t neglect approaching girls you like in Mexico. My style is to walk up to a girl I like and start a simple conversation like asking for directions or for the time. I’ve found it’s the best way to overcome your fear of approaching women. Plus, it builds confidence fast.
Meet Your Mexican Girlfriend in Mexico City
In Mexico, you can meet girls wherever you can find people! In Mexico City (the largest city in North America, by the way), it’s ridiculously easy to find Mexican girls to approach. I specifically recommend the El Centro neighborhood because I’ve found that Mexican gals are more open to talking to American or European men.
Playa Del Carmen, Cancun
Outside of Mexico City, I wholeheartedly recommend the Riviera Maya. You can’t beat coastal towns like Cancun, Tulum, or Playa del Carmen…which attract gorgeous visiting women from all over the world, not just Mexico.
How to Keep Your Mexican Girl
Take the lead
Remember, in Mexico, it is customary for the man to take the lead in the relationship, which holds true from the beginning when you first meet to when you’re dating.
For a couple of examples, decide where you want to go for the date and ask her if you have a certain day and time in mind that works rather than asking, “so, uh, what day works for you?”
Do not look like a tourist
Just because you’re a handsome gringo doesn’t mean you’ll automatically get the girl. If anything, looking like a tourist will reduce your chances.
Dress well and take good care of yourself, but ditch the whole tourist look with the Hawaiian-looking shirt, sandals, and camera. Honestly, khaki trousers and a nice polo set you apart from other visiting men.
Don’t be too aggressive
While you should take the lead in the relationship, don’t be too aggressive. Avoid discussing sensitive topics on the first date, and don’t start touching her early on. Let the relationship take its natural course and escalate things slowly as you grow more comfortable with one another.
Chivalry is still expected
Traditional gender roles are to be assumed in Mexico. That means when it comes to dating, it’s expected for the man to be chivalrous. What does that mean for you? It means you should pick her up at her place (assuming that the two of you haven’t decided to meet up somewhere) and then drive her back once the date is over.
That is one of the best things you can do to display that you truly care about her, and she’ll appreciate it immensely.
In that same vein, it will be expected of you to pay for dinner and drinks, or for tickets to a movie or a game or whatever kind of activity the two of you decide to do together. Hold the door open for her when you walk inside, stay with her throughout the night (always walk or drive her home so you know she’s safe), and don’t get aggressive regarding physical contact.
Try to figure out what she really means
You’ll learn very quickly that Mexican girls don’t always say what they mean. For example, if a woman comes across as being a little upset and you ask her, “why are you upset” or “what’s wrong?” she may deny that anything is wrong in the first place. But her actions will indicate otherwise if she continues to act quiet and sullen or disinterested in you for a couple of days. So if she tells you “nothing is wrong,” in reality, something is most likely very much wrong.
If she tells you something such as “my friend’s boyfriend took her out to the beach last Saturday,” she means that she wants you to take her out for a day on the beach.
You get the idea. You need to read between the lines and figure out what she really means when she asks or tells you something. There’s almost always more meaning to what she’s saying beyond the literal meaning.
Mexican girls are quite jealous and your girlfriend will get pretty angry if she finds out you’re with another woman (or even if she just suspects it). So if the two of you are going out, it’s best not to mention other girls you may be going out with simultaneously. If you do start to envision a future with her to become your girlfriend, you need to realize that the future needs to involve her exclusively.
Don’t talk about other girls you’ve dated in the past. At least not until you’ve grown comfortable with each other to the point that you can talk about one another’s lives.
Remember that Mexico is a very traditional country and that includes the Mexican dating culture as well. Both partners should be fully faithful, starting as soon as you enter a relationship.
What to Expect From Your Mexican GF?
Here are a few things you should expect if you ever have a Mexican partner…
Prepare for Latina time
When she says, “I’ll be there at seven,” plan on her arriving an hour or longer later. But don’t be angry or frustrated. She’s taking all that extra time to invest in her appearance because she wants to look as good for you as you can (especially if she’s really into you).
She’ll also use that time to talk or meet with her friends and chat about her upcoming date with the handsome gringo.
Learn to appreciate Latina time and prepare for it appropriately. My advice is this: if you want to hang out at seven, ask her if she can meet you at six or so.
Take the lead
Mexicans are very traditional when it comes to gender roles. As the man, you’re expected to take the lead. That means approaching her in the first place, asking her out, choosing where to eat or what to do, and perhaps even picking her up from her home.
Get involved with her family
When you date a Mexican woman seriously (meaning, there’s potential for a long-term relationship and not just hooking up for a weekend), expect her to introduce you to her family very early – within a week or two.
You want to make a good impression on everybody, but her mother is the most important person in her family to impress. If you’re mom-approved, you’re good to go!
And by the way, when she invites you over to a ‘family dinner,’ it won’t just be her parents and siblings. Rather, it will seem like a big family reunion!
There might be a language barrier
Not all Mexican girls speak good English so you should definitely learn to speak Spanish (at least at a conversational level) before your trip. Speaking Spanish will show a Mexican lady you are making an effort in impressing her!
Final Thoughts on Mexican Girlfriends
And that concludes my tips for finding a girlfriend from Mexico. Mexico truly is an incredible country that’s worth visiting. It’s diverse with its mixture of massive metropolises, beach getaways, fancy resorts, colonial towns with neat histories, and dense jungles.
But while getting to know Mexican culture is already awesome alone, trust me when I say it’s always more fun when you have a beautiful female companion to share your experiences with.
