Now all you need to know about Mexican men.
1. When the Mexico football team ‘el tri’ play, there is nothing in the world more important.
Do not interrupt a Mexican man watching football. You have been warned!
2. They’re momma’s boys.
It’s perfectly normal for a Mexican man at age 25 (or 50 something) to still be asking his mom to cook him somequesadillas.
3. The spicier you eat, the more macho you are.
Mexicans, especially men, start eating spicy food from a young age, so by the time they’re adults it’s practically a competitive sport. Don’t even think about not liking spiciness — that’s a no go! There’s a Mexican expression,”si no pica, no sabe” which means, “If it’s not spicy, it’s not tasty.”
4. They’re gentlemen.
Don’t be surprised if you see a Mexican opening the door for his girlfriend, or even carrying her handbag. This is how things are done in Mexico.
5. Swearing is a form of endearment.
If a Mexican is swearing in front of, or even at you, then it’s a good sign.
6. They love to party in a communal way.
In some countries, when you go clubbing you buy your own drinks, but in Mexico you buy a bottle together with your amigos!
7. The men always drive.
You will very rarely see the woman of a couple driving in Mexico. This is because of two reasons: Mexican men don’t trust women drivers, and if they let the woman drive it makes them seem less macho.
8. They are very protective of women, especially their loved ones.
Most Mexican men aren’t keen on their girlfriends taking public transport or walking the streets alone. Even when couples are walking on the street, the man will always walk on the side closest to the road so as to protect the woman from anything bad that could happen.
