Spot on. I am also not a fan of latam and their people much. Having made similar observations as you.I’d caution Catholics from looking for wives in Latin America. Yes you can find them here. Plenty of Catholic women. But damaged.
I would say all 7+ girls I’ve met here are damaged goods psychologically. Maybe 50/50 for the 6s. And that’s probably just because they were on their best behavior for me as I’m a 7.5 or so.
Even the virgins I’ve met are screwed up from terrible experiences. They’d need massive therapy and hand holding to recover. Even then you’d be dealing with too many other problems like propensity for obesity and marrying into a bad culture/society.
In all my time here in Mexico I’ve not met any girls that I found to be marriage material. There is a fundamental lack of respect, manners, appreciation, etc for men and the effort we put in.
My experience is probably more extreme because I will not date overweight women. And unlike most Latinas my idea of skinny is not being 30-50 pounds overweight. It’s truly bizarre that a Latin woman who is that overweight will argue with you about it. Even showing you a picture of a woman who can barely walk (morbidly obese) and saying that is what’s considered fat.
Another big red flag is that almost none tell me their goal is to be a wife and mother. In fact most Latinas say that this is NOT one of their goals. It’s just kind of something they will let happen to them passively and deal with in a half-assed and neglectful way. Uh, no thanks!
Many do end up married. But they’re clueless about how to act and behave. Or they just don’t care. They do whatever they want. Then complain about it. Cry every night types.
If you try to date here you should expect that most can’t show up for a date. Utter stupidity or disregard for you. There will be few cancellations, apologies, and attempts to reschedule. Just flakes. Even with women who are clearly 2 points below your value in every way.
In their defense Latinas can be pleasant to be around if you pay for everything and keep life simple. Plan on having 8 or so additional roles. Not just boyfriend/husband. You are also the father, therapist, atm, chauffeur, punching bag, doormat, tour guide, body guard, etc.
I’ve dated some Latina girls around 30 were ok for a long term relationship. I just wasn’t attracted to these older women that much.
Latina women over 25+ are always overweight and/or damaged psychologically from so many failed relationships. Unlike men they generally don’t stop to consider their own behavior and try to improve. Same 4-8 yo behavior comes out daily or almost daily.
The older women are also so busy with work you’ll barely get much time with them. Younger women have been more free this year with schools closed. But younger oneare with family almost 24/7.
Most Latinas live at home until married which means they don’t really grow up. They’re quite immature.
I’ve dated adult women who couldn’t light the burners on a stove. I shit you not. How did they survive that long? Who raised this princess?
I’ve tried cohabitating and it’s always been an unbalanced dynamic. I can’t imagine raising kids with most of them. They’re very selfish and lazy.
If you try that expect the attitude and behavior of a 4-8 year old daughter not a girlfriend. It won’t be ALL the time. They have a good side and bad side.
Other issues I noticed:
-Literally addicted to their phones. Often not bathing because they are so addicted.
-No hobbies. They say going to the beach but most can’t swim.
-Educations that are worthless. The schools here are a joke compared to global north.
-Poisoned by media with fear and risk aversion. Even the ones that say they’re not. It’s all talk and no action.
-Cheating for women is common. Cheating for men is almost a certainty.
-Many women are freelance Prostitutes on the side. Or selling dirty panties type crap.
Overall, the stereotypical Latina attitude has little respect for men. The prevailing idea for most 20s age Latinas I meet is that the man is an ATM machines to subsidize their fun lifestyle and be subjected to the whims of their mood.
if you want a Catholic girl then no question whatsoever you should be looking in the Philippines.
The attitude is way better and the women want to be wives and mothers.
They’re appreciative and affectionate. I’d rather have a poor Pinay girl than a rich Latina. Even if the rich one was from a good home and the poor one a broken home.
Remember you’re also marrying into the woman’s family and society.
Latam has too many problems at the societal level like crime and corruption. It messes up the entire system, families, individuals. They’re ok for having a date once or twice a week but that’s it.
Sad to say this but most Latinas I’ve dated made me lose respect for them before we ever met. By the time we were in a relationship I actively resented them. Not all, but like 90%.
Imagine loving a woman but also hating her? Meanwhile she thinks her behavior is normal and reasonable—you’re lucky to have her!
That’s been my experience in Latam. The women here are trouble for relationships. I’m sure there are success stories. Most of those guys are high earners who have no trouble paying 100% of the high life.
They put up with 6-12 months of crap before they finally get her pair bonded and seriously invested. Then start asking for basic things like shopping on a budget. At which point the girl will cry, pack her bags, and pretend to book a ticket.
Why deal with this when the Philippines exists and you don’t even have to learn Spanish or ball out to get respect?
Philippines can however be similar but it is certainly a step or two below in difficulty.
I would advise on indonesia, lovely people there.
Corruption is not such a big issue as it is a way of live. It is more the fact how they view you in your capacity as atm, which can also happen in thailand often..
