Dating and marriage customs in mexico
One person may be from a conservative Caucasian family who does not believe in public displays of affection while the other is from Mexico and has no trouble showing affection anywhere at all.
In situations like this a compromise may become necessary.
Every culture has its own customs and traditions when it comes to dating and relationships.
If you are interested in dating a Mexican then there may be some things about the dating customs of Mexicans that you should be aware of.
Mexican Flirtation Just about every lady who lives in close proximity to a Mexican community has heard the yelling, whistling and shouting that is sent their way by the Mexican men as they walk by.
Yes, Mexican men love to flirt in that way but when it comes to someone they seriously like and would like to date they are usually much more respectful.
The women are taught to be much more soft-spoken and submissive while the men are the dominant figures in the home.
This is one reason that you may notice a lot of fighting or arguing happening in mixed relationships, generally when the woman is white or American and the man is Mexican.
As a rule, American women seem to be very independent and free spirited and this can cause strife in a relationship in which the man is Mexican and the woman is not.
Again, with the younger generation and the Americanizing of Mexicans this is not always going to be the case but we are talking about traditional Mexican dating values.
