Like with any group of people, Latin women have also been the subject of stereotypes. This is quite unfortunate because they are nothing like these misconceptions at all. As a result of these stereotypes, they have gotten a bad rap. Anyone who knows a Latina can attest that there’s more to her than meets the eye. It’s about time to set the record straight so that no one else gets the wrong idea about them.

If you are interested in dating a Latina, you’ve probably already heard of some of these stereotypes but mistakenly accepted them as truths. To save you from putting your foot in your mouth, here are some of the misconceptions that need to be dispelled:

They are crazy and short tempered.

We’re not saying that all Latinas are angels and saints, but to say that they are extremely short-tempered (which is often referred to as the “Latina temper”) and go berserk on you over minor things is just simply inaccurate.

The truth is we all have our boiling point and our own ways to express our anger, frustration, and disappointment. But it’s ridiculous to attribute one’s temper with one’s race and ethnic background. It’s simple really. As long as you treat your Latina date right, then they will extend the same courtesy.

They are not all from Mexico.

When you meet a Latina, do not automatically assume she’s from Mexico because that’s not the only country in South America. In fact, there are 29 different countries in Latin America.

So the next time that you meet a Latina, ask which part of Latin America she’s from instead. This will give her the impression that you want to learn about her country. And since there are also varied cultures across the Latin American region, knowing which country she’s from will give you an idea about her cultural background, as well.

They are not hypersexual and promiscuous.

Latina women are probably the most sexualized ethnic group to date. This is due in large part to the media’s inaccurate depiction of Latinas being hypersexual and promiscuous.

It’s quite unfair to assume they are sexual objects simply because of the media’s interpretation of them. In truth, majority of Latina women are still reserved and demure. There’s still a bunch of them out there who want genuine and lasting love over casual sex and hookups.

They like being called spicy, exotic, etc.

Some men think that calling Latina women spicy, exotic or hot is somewhat a compliment. Let’s clear the air once and for all: it’s NOT! Most Latinas find such terms offensive. If you make the mistake of calling her any of these expressions, she would think that you only view her as a sexual object. If you want to compliment her, then just be honest. She would appreciate the earnestness of your praise.

They are not gold diggers.

We’re pretty sure you’ve heard or seen this before. Almost every time a Latina character is portrayed on TV or in movies, they depict her as a poor ghetto girl who’s lazy and is just looking for a sugar daddy to take her out of poverty.

This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Most Latino women are driven and hardworking. Regardless of their economic status, they always aim to be independent and self-reliant. So, no, Latinas aren’t gold diggers, rather they mine their own gold.

Latinas are amazing women. Not only are they beautiful and kind, but they are also smart and extremely hardworking. While we understand that these misconceptions will not be completely quashed overnight, we hope that you’ll not fall for these stereotypes anymore. We hope that we somehow made you less reluctant to date Latina women.
