What types of things are they into? I am curious-I don't know that much about them.

This is a stupid question. You may as well ask "What types of things are Canadian women into?" They are all different.

@contrex,
I'm referring to their CULTURE. I don't know that much about their culture. I know what Asian women are into because I spend time talking to them, and researching it.

That's NOT a dumb question.

If I wanted to date a Latino I would like to know what they are into. How is that dumb?

@contrex,
If you looked you would have seen I tagged this thread with a CULTURE tag.

A Latino is a male. That's how dumb you are. If I asked you what "white" women are "into", could you give me a meaningful answer? Of course not. Or Red Indians? (You'd probably say tomahawks and moccasins and allege that you werent racist because you know to call them Native North Americans)

It's a dumb question, made to seem even dumber by the revelation that the questioner is clueless as to why its dumb.

@snood,
I am part-Sephardi and also Jewish. Essentially, I am a Jewish Latina. There is no requirement of a certain percentage of Spanish blood in order to be considered Latina/Hispanic. Therefore, I am although, I will admit, the percentage is rather small. But there is Spanish on my father's mother's side of things.

Therefore, I will answer this question. I enjoy computers, cooking, the Internet, working out, movies and travel.

I do hope that you realize now just how absurd this question is. Okay? I am not -- please don't misunderstand me -- I am not trying to make you look ridiculous. But I do want you to get that asking this question -- even if you get a million responses (and you won't) from Latina women (and how are you going to verify that a respondent is female, or Latina, or Latina enough, somehow, for your purposes?) who are sincere in their statements of what they like -- is not going to get you the answer that you are looking for.

These are individuals, not a separate species. They are not a monolith, to be readily categorized into one easy bucket that says that they all like long walks on the beach and the musical stylings of Cole Porter. These are people. Get to know the individuals and you will understand them.

BTW, FYI, if I were to be approached, back when I was single, by a guy speaking either Spanish or Yiddish to me, in some attempt to impress me, I would try to see if I could find someone to help this person. I do speak Spanish, but it's been years. I was not brought up speaking either Spanish or Yiddish in my home, except for little bits of Yiddish, and I took Spanish (and French, actually) in High School. Attempts to impress are, well, they're nice if they're well-thought-out. But these kinds of specific efforts would probably not go over perfectly well, at least not with me. And, again, seeing as I am an individual, my Mexican cousins (yes, I have them) might see things differently.

@contrex,
I'm not White- why would you ask ME what white women are into?

I'm an AFRICAN-AMERICAN male. I don't give a CRAP about white women.

Apparently you don't know when someone makes a TYPO.

It's dumb because latinas and latinos number in the many millions and they aren't some kind of production stamped persons that are somehow all into the same interests.

@ossobuco,
I don't know that much about Latin/Hispanic culture aside from what I see on TV.

What can I do to impress a Hispanic/Latina woman, besides speak Spanish or Portuguese?

That myth about them being submissive? I KNOW That's a myth.


No, that's not the one I meant. It's more... anatomical...

@JGoldman10,
You are never going to find a woman if you sit in front of a computer all day asking questions. Now put the mouse down, freshen up a little and go start looking.

@soozoo,
I'm not really interested. I ask questions about women because I am curious about them.

Using an internet search engine such as Google and doing a seach for sites about hispanic culture, you find informative sites such as:

Understanding the Hispanic Culture

Hispanic Generations and Hispanic Culture
