Guest Manifesto: 5 Key Factors To Swooping Latinas
Latinas are a different breed of woman. Latin culture is very macho, the women are very feminine, bubbly, and male and female roles in Latin culture are more strictly defined and understood than what you are use to when dealing with 100% American women.
It’s hard to box all Latin women into generalizations because there are so many different types of Latin Women. You have the Latin women who grew up in your own country (most likely the U.S.A), who may have a mixed upbringing and with mixed Latino-American culture. You have newly arrived Latinas who grew up in Latin America and are in your back yard to visit. And even within Latin America, you have for example the white Argentine women of Buenos Aires who are notoriously tough to seduce, the more easy going Caribbean women who know how, and love to dance to just about anything, and you have more reserved, Latin women of the Andean regions of Latin America. Despite all these differences, if I had to pick the top five factors that will most likely be factors when trying to swoop Latin women, I’d go with this list:
Machismo is very much alive in Latin America, although the level of this Machismo ranges throughout countries and regions. In general, Latin men are expected to be the bread winners. Men are expected to take charge and lead the interactions. This applies to mixed groups but also to one on one interaction. If a group of men and women go out in Latin America, the men usually chip in for the drinks. The men pick the location and decide where to go and what to do.
In fact, this is so much ingrained in the culture that if you don’t do this, the women will think you’re weak. When I first started traveling and dating women raised in Latin America I actually had women tell me “You’re the man, you’re supposed to decide what were going to do and where to go.” I didn’t just hear it from one woman; I heard it many times before it went through my thick skull. Latin women like to feel that they are with a man that can protect her, get sh*t done, and knows how to take care of things.
So when you’re trying to swoop those fly Latin mamis, remember, don’t be afraid to make the decisions, don’t supplicate, lead through the whole interaction, if something doesn’t go well take responsibility for it, take a deep breath, grab your balls and be the f*cking man.
There’s nothing better than surprising a Latin with even just a few words in her language. The truth is most Americans are too lazy to learn a new language. And since English is the most popular language on the planet, there’s very little incentive to learn a new one. But if you want to get “in” with the Latin women while you’re swooping them, you need to get down at least a few key phrases.
Learning a few words of phrases will help out with Latin women who know English, but if you’re trying to swoop Latin women in Latin America on their own turf, you’re going to need some fluency in most cases. The good news is that there are only two languages spoken throughout all of Latin America. And the even better news is that those two languages are very similar to each other: Spanish and Portuguese.
If you want to go to Brazil, and swoop some fly Brazileiras learn Portuguese. If you want to swoop Latin women anywhere else in Latin America learn Spanish.
You don’t need to become an expert, just get some conversational fluency and you’re all set.
Not all Latin women know how to dance, but it’s one of the biggest aspects of Latin Culture. Latinas almost go hand in hand with music and dance, especially if you’re talking about some of the most popular destinations like Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Cuba.
Being an American you get a lot more points if you know just the basics.
Also, Latin dances let you get up close and touching even if you just met. Most Latin dances involve hand clasping and an a light embrace which lets you get right up close, exactly where you want to be for the swoop.
Besides the touching and the points you get for knowing how to dance, taking a girl out to dance in Latin clubs and all over Latin America is a great opener, it’s easy and if you hit any bar or club in Latin America your chances of getting shot down are almost zero. Clubs in the U.S. are a bit different, but it’s still really easy to go up to a fly Latina, extend your hand with a smile and tell her “vamos a bailar.”
This last one is very touchy and you won’t hear it much from anyone else but it’s the truth. Latin women are in some ways very superficial and looks is one of those areas that can either make or break you. Latin women are the same when it comes to other women in the fact that they like guys who are in shape, lean, muscular etc. Tall guys will also do better. If you’re lean, in shape, dress sharp, and are tall then you have good chances of swooping lots of Latin women.
But the one factor that you cannot control that influences your chances greatly is RACE. The truth is that decent looking Caucasian men have an advantage over all other races in Latin America. The reason for this is that ever since the colonization of Latin America, the ruling class, wealthy and elite in Latin America have been of white European decent. Even to this day, if you go to the poor parts of any Latin city you’ll see a more black and Mestizo population. If you go to the rich parts of town, you’ll see more people that fit a Caucasian description.
If you’re white, Latinas will generally be more attracted to you because of this. Unfortunately the other side of this coin is that black men and men with Mestizo or indigenous features will experience less of this initial physical attraction from Latinas.
Although white guys have the upper hand with many Latinas there are certain regions, cities, and places in Latin America where this isn’t as much of an issue. If you’re white you can go to pretty much anywhere but if you’re black I’d suggest going to coastal cities which usually have a much more diverse population. Also try sticking to Caribbean countries and Brazil.
#5 Financial Stability:
When it comes to swooping Latinas there’s one last thing I’d list in the top five factors and that would be your financial stability. Latin America is a region of the world that has one of the highest income disparities in the whole world. This means that a very few people hold most of the wealth and everyone else gets by on very little.
Because of this Latin women who grew up in Latin America either directly experienced these economic limitations or have family who has. Even Latin women who live in your back yard probably have family back in Latin America with economic limitations.
Because of this, Latinas value economic stability a lot more than most western women. But this doesn’t mean you have to wine and dine her. All a Latina needs to know is that you can handle your finances. If you’re in the U.S. you might need a bit more to show this, but if you’re in Latin America, just the fact that you had enough to buy your plane ticket to Latin America already shows you have some kind of financial stability.
So don’t get me wrong on this. You only need to show that you can handle your finances and not necessarily wine and dine the Latina you’re swopping.
The Final Swoop:
So to sum it all up. Be a man and lead your Latina through the swoop. Learn some Spanish or Portuguese. Learn some Latin dance moves, in fact get a Latina to teach you! If you’re a decent looking white guy you have an advantage with many Latinas but this isn’t make or break if you can compensate with some game and can handle the other factors. Show your financial stability, but you don’t have to spend a lot to do this, especially if you’re in Latin America.
