There’s nobody who doesn’t like a good love story, but how many of Argentina’s dating, gender, and relationship stereotypes are true?
We evaluate the top 5, and reveal the truths laced to this seemingly paradisiacal city of passion. If you’re taken out on a first date, and have a good time with your suitor, don’t be surprised if you meet la vieja (his mother) on the second date.
Considering most young men live with their parents yard lengths past an acceptable age (by American standards), you’ll be forced to meet and greet the fam even if he just wants to swing by home to pick up the movie tickets he forgot. If you agree to crash at their place, don’t act so abashed when you have to despedir the entire family the next morning.
Argentine women will not put up with bullshit, hence the reason so many expats new to Buenos Aires are turned off at first. Be genuine, be yourself, and be open –basically everything you think they’re not.
Once you find the right friends, you’ll discover that Argentine women –like the culture in general—are open, considerate, and overwhelmingly genuine.
