Dating and courtship in mexico

27 Feb

Mexicans have one of the most interesting dating rituals in the world.

A non-Mexican wanting to date a Mexican must understand the characteristics of Mexican dating style and the roles men and women play in dating rituals.

In the Mexican culture, the women’s role is to wait until the men invite them to go out.For example, in Mexico, one common expectation is getting the father’s approval since he is the head of the household.For women, the guidelines are more strict because the father is letting their little girl go off with another man.One of my buddies thought he went on a date with a Russian girl, but in her mind, it wasn’t a date.According to her, in Russia it’s not a real date unless the guy picks a girl up, pays for dinner, and gets her home at a time that is comfortable for her.
