Is it just me or is the mere thought of dating Argentinian men kind of appealing? Most men and women live at home till finishing university and usually for a while longer.Maybe it’s the tango, the accent, or the hot temper, but there is something to be said about Argentinian men, isn’t there? You might have to repeat the phrase ‘no’ repeatedly if someone isn’t to your liking. This means that some men leave their mother’s nest at the ripe age of thirty.
Latin America, though, is rightly renowned for its fiery passions and beautiful people, and to miss out on this side of the region’s culture through fear is far more unforgivable than embarrassing yourself with culturally inappropriate body language.
I WAS LIVING ALONE IN BUENOS AIRES for a couple months, working online from a tiny studio apartment in the city center. The first awkward moment on this date was when I showed up at the chic, trendy bar wearing alpaca wool from Bolivia, and hiking shoes.
I wanted every single day to be different and new and only possible in Buenos Aires. I learned my fashion lesson the hard way as he gave me the expat briefing on the hip Palermo district of Buenos Aires.
As seen on the cover of my Time Out Buenos Aires guide book, the obelisk is one of city’s most iconic sites. I like reading, walking, dancing, music in general, travelling and know about others cultures and lands. He was researching the impact of cruise ships on the Patagonian coast.
I brought the guide book with me because both of us had relocated to Buenos Aires (he was a freelance graphic designer who had chosen Buenos Aires as his current headquarters), but the city was still very new to both of us. We went on an all-day site-seeing marathon by foot, bus, and subway. It was almost like he had read my entire blog and was making things up based on what I had written.
