8 Ways to Win Over the Heart of Any Latina

As a Latina, the last thing you want is to date someone that’s only interested in you because you’re Latina. Like, OK, yes, we are amazing, but fetishizing people for their ethnicity is extremely problematic.

And while many of us may still totally love Sofia Vergara, it’s annoying to know that non-latinos might only want to date us in hopes of having a “fiery, curvaceous” woman in their lives. So here’s the deal, there’s zero way that you can pigeon-hole us all and white dudes writing guides about how to score with a Latin girl are usually full of bogus BS. (Seriously, if I read one more crappy blog post about how you need to be “dominating” because of machista culture, I’m going to puke…and then send it in a bag to them). However, there are some things that many of us do enjoy from time to time, some of which might even impress us ever-so-slightly (assuming you have your shit together in every other area and you’re not a creep).
