“There’s just too much competition. There’s too many good looking women around here to compete with.” That’s what she told me as we were riding in the taxi. We were headed down Calle 72 in the northern part of Barranquilla. It was our second date, and we were headed to the mall to walk around and do some window shopping.
I’m not sure exactly how it came up. But it wasn’t the first time I’ve heard attractive women complain about the tough female competition in Latin America.
The thing that always gets me, is that I’ve never heard a woman complain once about the tough female competition in the United States. But in Latin America, no matter what country I’ve been to, I always run into women who complain about the dating environment.
I’ve heard it from Ecuadorian women, Brazilian women, Colombia women, Peruvian women, and even Bolivian women, just to name a few. Not every girl complains but enough women complain to the point where you start asking yourself? Is there really something to this?
But when it comes to American women I’ve never had one complain in my presence. I read an article on a website about an American woman who couldn’t compete with the Latinas in Miami, but other then that, it’s never happened.
So what gives? Are Latinas just whiners? Or is there something else going on here?
10 years ago I might have just chalked all this complaining to coincidence. But today I’m a much more experienced guy, and I know the REAL reasons why so many women complain in Latin America. I’ve cataloged and detailed everything in my book about International Dating and Foreign Women. Once you read it, you’ll have the upper hand over all those guys that have no clue why Latin American women complain about their local female competition.

Tip #2: Food – The way to a Latina’s heart
One of the best conversational tools you can use with Latin women is: Food. Every culture is defined in part by it’s food. And Latin America is no different. Although the dishes and foods throughout Latin America have many similarities, each country and even each region within a country has it’s own specialties and even different names for what may be the same dishes. There’s a million things you can ask about the food from her country and region.
A conversation on food can lead to many places. Does she know how to cook? If she does, she might have to cook for you sometime. What’s her favorite dish from her country? Does she know any places that have good typical dishes from her country/region? Suggest a nice dinner at the places she mentions.
I know dinner dates have lost their glitter in the eyes of many. But dinner doesn’t always have to be in a restaurant. You can ask her to come over, go shopping together for all the ingredients, and help her make a typical dish from her country. Add a bottle of wine (or some other alcoholic beverage) and some music and it not only makes for a small little adventure into the super market and the kitchen, it makes for a great date.
There’s just something about eating together that creates intimacy. That intimacy gets even stronger when you’re both making the bread you’re going to break. If you think about it, most major world religions have some sort of a traditional ritual feast. Breaking bread together just brings people closer to each other.
I’m sure you’ve heard that “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Latin women take this very seriously, but now you can use her stomach as a way to build rapport, setup great dates, and add some interesting topics into the conversation.

Tip #1: A Little Spanish or Portuguese Goes a Long Way:
Whether your dealing with a Latin women at home or abroad, you can use your lack of knowledge of her language to your advantage. This particular tip is especially useful if your dealing with a Latina at home where you both speak English or if your interacting with a Latin girl abroad who knows English. I’m assuming you’ll both be communicating mostly in English, but you’ll need to use the little Spanish or Portuguese that you know to add some flirtation and fun into the interaction.
One important thing to remember is that you don’t need to be fluent in either Spanish or Portuguese to make a good impression. Like the tittle states, a little knowledge of the language goes a long way. In fact you probably know some common phrases already, like: “gracias”, “como estas?”, and “estas muy bonita” (you are really cute). I bet you knew or have heard at least two out of those three phrases. If you put a little effort into it you can probably learn 20 to 30 phrases in a weeks time.
Most latina women will find your knowledge of her language very endearing. They may asked you where you learned that? Or compliment you on your knowledge of her language, even though it may be very little. You might get a chuckle because you pronounce something wrong or because you mixed words up. The point is to make your use of her language fun and lite hearted, but at the same time you must be interested in it, and willing to learn more, particularly from her. In many cases you can use your lack of knowledge of her language as an excuse to make her your language teacher. This can be a good reason to exchange phone numbers and contact information and an even better reason to setup another date.
Your lack of language fluency can also come in handy when you find yourself in those awkward moments when neither of you have something to say. A good safety net is to just think of something or look around and ask her how you say that in her language. Many Latin women will appreciate the fact that your taking time to learn her language and culture.
This tip applies to Latinas but it can also apply to other foreign women you may meet either locally or abroad. As long as you can communicate in another language with the foreign girl (most likely English), you can use your lack of knowledge of her native or second language as useful conversational tool.

If you run into a Latin women anywhere in this world, or anywhere in Latin America this is a useful little tip that will get you started off the right foot.
Generally in Latin America anytime you greet someone from the opposite sex you extend your hand do small handshake or hand clasp and then pull her in for a small cheek to cheek kiss. This move includes the first time you meet someone.
The following is an excerpt from my book The Global Dating Revolution on page 175 explaining the whole process:A cheek to cheek kiss is a great way to start the interaction. It brings you in very close right from the start, and the women can get a sense of your colgne and presence.
Cheek to cheek kisses are reserved for the opposite sex, don’t ever try to kiss a guy on the cheek. Although French and Italian men do kiss each other on the cheek, this does not happen in Latin America, except for maybe Argentina.
As a man you’re expected to initiate the cheek to cheek kiss by leaning in and puller her hand in gently at the same time. You don’t actually put your lips on her cheek, especially if it’s your first time meeting her. What you do is press your cheek gently against hers, and make a kissing sound.
If you’re meeting a group of girls, don’t just kiss the girl you like on the cheek, kiss all of them on the cheek. Normally it would not be polite for a woman to refuse a kiss on the cheek. However if you don’t start of with a kiss on the cheek from the very first interaction it might feel a bit awkward to do it later on, especially if you’ve already met the woman many times.
One great way to judge a woman’s attraction towards you is the kiss goodbye. As you get more comfortable with a woman your cheek to cheek kiss can a bit more intimate by bringing your lips a bit closer to her lips every time and judging her response. If you’re both feeling the chemistry a goodbye cheek to cheek kiss where the side of your lips brush her’s can lead to a full blown kiss or make out.
The Cheek Kiss Play By Play:
Let’s say you’re right handed. What you would do is the following.
- Extend your right hand, for a handshake
- Smile and introduce yourself, just say your name listen for hers (do this while your extending your hand)
- Even before you have a full grasp of her hand start to lean in, but once you do have a hold of her hand you opt to shake it gently or just pull her in gently
- Turn you’re head slightly, exposing your right cheek and bring it towards hers. Remember always use your right cheek
- Your cheek should touch and brush hers
- Make the kissing sound, like a small smooch
- Pull away gently always smile
- You can add a “mucho gusto” optionally, which means nice to meet you
- Make sure you do all of these things in one fluid motion
How To Greet People In General In Latin America
It’s also important to greet everyone in the room when you enter. North Americans are notorious for entering a room and just giving a “hey, howdy, hey!” to everyone. That is considered very rude to a Latin. Here you enter a room, and go around the room greeting each person. Kiss every woman on the cheek, even older women and younger women, and shake every man’s hand. When you depart from a gathering, you should generally also say goodbye to everyone individually. The handshake or kiss is repeated at departure.
Cheek Kissing Videos:
This first video is a video that explains the origins of the cheek kiss, and gives you some great examples and explanations of the cheek kiss:
This second video is from a Latin American soap opera. You’ll notice that the father kisses the mother and daughter both on the cheek but with his lips. The guy dating the girl gives her a kiss on the cheek goodbye but it’s a bit more intimate because their lips come very close.

“Why do these girls get so dressed up for the airport?” That’s what the two American girls behind me were saying about the Latin women who were also waiting on the check in line for our flight to miami. There was a stark difference between the two. The American girls looked like they just hoped out of bed. They both had baggy sweats and baggy sweaters on. Their hair was a mess and they honestly couldn’t care less.
It was a 6:40 am flight and I can understand that maybe they didn’t bother because the flight was so early, but from their attitude I wouldn’t be surprised if they would show like that for a 4:00 PM flight. Even though it was an early flight, the Latin women on the line found the time to “dress up”.
On the flip side, the Latin women were all very presentable and some were even very dressed up. I wouldn’t expect less. An “Americanized” Latin girl may step out in public in her sweats and baggy shirt, with her hair all over the place, but a real Latin woman wouldn’t dream of leaving her house if she doesn’t fix helself up a bit.
It’s part of the Latin American culture. In Latin America there is much more competition among females. I explain in full detail why this is the case in my book, “The Global Dating Revolution“, but I also touched on the subject in a post I made about American Vs Latin women in Miami.
American women “slack off” because they can. But foreign women never let their guard down in this aspect. Even though foreign women may not have as much income to give themselves a Jenny Jones makeover, they do their best with the tools they have to always look their best and always try to draw the attention of men as well as the women they feel they’re competing with. If you doubt my point of view, you can read an article from an American girl who agrees with me, its called It’s not easy being a white girl in Miami.

Life.com recently released an article titled “Venezuela’s Most Beautiful Women“. It’s a series of pictures of current and past pageant contestants and winners.
Miss Venezuela (Dayana Mendoza featured in the picture) most recently won the title of Miss Universe for 2009, bringing the grand total of Venezuela wins to a whooping 6.
Having been to Venezuela myself, I have to agree that Venezuelan women are amazingly attractive. An afternoon stroll down one of the busy avenues in the center of the city leaves you with more then eyeful of slender, attractive “chamas” (Venezuelan slang for chica or girl).
Night clubs and in Caracas are no different, and my Venezuelan female friends have confessed to me in the past over some drinks that they have to fight tooth and nail for their men against all the other single ladies.
If it wasn’t for the reports of violence and increased crime in Venezuela I probably would have gone back already. I may have to go and verify the reports for myself. But there are many other places including Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, and Costa Rica where the women are just as friendly and attractive, and crime isn’t as much of an issue.
Although there are many pretty women in Venezuela I would say that it’s definitely not a place you want to venture into unless you’re a Veteran traveler, fluent in Spanish, and are a bit more risk averse.
The one negative about Venezuela at the moment, is that the mismanagement of the Economy by President Hugo Chavez, has resulted in high inflation, increasingly difficult times economically, and shortages of basic necessities like water, and electricity. Rolling black outs are common place, and Chavez recently urged all Venezuelans to take 3 minute showers to conserve water.
In part due to these reasons, crime and violence has increased dramatically in Venezuela over the past decade, most notably in the city of Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. Although there are no outright “travel warnings” for Venezuela on the government websites, Venezuela and Caracas still remain high up on the list of crime and homicide rates.
Still having said all of this, I’m reminded of my European friend who told me a story about a team of engineers from his company in Spain who were sent to Venezuela for a six month stint. Out of the team of 11 engineers 7 of them came back from Venezuela married. And no that is not an exaggeration.

Today I would like to talk about Latin American women.
I’m talking about Latin American women from Latin America who are very Latina and cherish their culture. But apart from having a very traditional, feminine culture (unlike many women in the USA who have a more masculine mindset), women in Latin America look great. Latin America has been a melting pot where there has been a mix between European, African, and Indigenous populations. Many people argue that this mix has created a more well balanced and very attractive population, especially in areas where there has been a more even mix between cultures and races.
Places like Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, and Costa Rica are perfect examples of this.
In Latin America my friends, MOST women look great. And why is this? The truth is that in the USA roughly half of the women have lost their feminine curves due to the overweight and obesity epidemic.
Yes, obesity is an issue in the USA. More then half of all Americans are overweight. Out of this, roughly 25% are considered obese, and this number is continuously growing. One other frightening fact is that obesity tends to affect women in more severity then men.
While more then half American women are 20 to 30 pounds over their normal body weight, and roughly 25% are more then 30 pounds over, in Latin America, around 90% of the women are thin and in good shape.
Even those who fall in the minority 10% that are not thin or in shape, are usually a few pounds over, but not obese. In fact, if you’ve ever traveled to Latin America you know that on most of your trips you will never almost never encounter an obese person. You may encounter some older men in their 40’s with beer belly’s, and some older ladies with a little extra weight, but the younger crowds are all fit and thin, and definitely not obese.
This is why “Beauty” is the norm south of the border. In Latin American countries most women look great, because they have thin waists and that psychologically mind numbing .7 hip to wast ratio which drives men crazy. And you can find these feminine silhouettes just about everywhere you look in Latin America. Since most women look great, your dating prospects are truly among the best in the world.
Let’s not forget that apart from their looks, the women of Latin America are some of the most down to earth and sweet women on this planet, but let’s face it, you and me both know that looks do count for something, and these women are top shape… No man can argue with that.
Any guy, no matter who you are or where your from can and will have success in any Latin American country.
I challenge you to travel to any Latin American country and see for yourself. As a good friend of mine once said “seeing is believing”.
Once you see how great and just how “beauty” is the Norm in Latin America, you will see what the rest of the world has to offer for your dating and romantic life. Trust me, there’s a whole world out there waiting to be discovered. A world filled with romantic opportunities, with young women, with thing waists, who take care of themselves and to top it all off, are very very friendly. Ahh yes… That is Latin America, where beauty is the norm for women.

What’s up fellas!
I’m heading to Brazil later this year to spend some time with some sexy Brazilian women, so I decided to come up with a list of reasons to go there… It wasn’t hard! I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading this list as much as I enjoyed making it .

#3. Cariocas: The Brazilian women of Rio de Janeiro are called ‘Cariocas’. They are known for being very friendly and hospitable to visitors. Cariocas are also considered the most beautiful of all Brazilian women by many foreigners and local Brazilian men. The reason for this is because of the unique flavor of Brazilian culture and race that is specific to areas surrounding Rio de Janeiro.
#4. More Women then Men The ratio of women to men are higher then in most other countries in the world. Especially in Rio, where it is believed there are 100 women for every 86 men.

I guess the bikini craze keeps the pressure on them!

Traveling alone can be a tough decision. Sometimes it’s a little nerve wrecking going to a foreign country by yourself. I’ve had this feeling myself many times when traveling alone, but over the years I’ve found ways to make every trip lots of fun, even when I’m traveling alone.
Step 1: Make some friends online. This is a must do, especially for those shy guys out there. If you don’t think you’ll be able to approach women on the streets or in clubs when you travel, you have to do the dirty work on the Internet before you get there. The good news is that it’s really easy, especially when you’re trying to meet foreign women. So get on the Internet start chatting with some women and start building some trust and friendships. After a few weeks of chatting on a regular basis, you’ll see that these women will warm up to you greatly.
You can get my book if you want the nitty gritty details about meeting foreign women online: Meet Foreign Women Online: The Complete Guide
I’ll give you one example. I was headed for Barranquilla, Colombia, and on this particular trip, I was going to head down on my own. I started sending out emails and making friends a month before I got to Barranquilla. By the time the final day of travel arrived, I had already made about 15 new female friends in that city. I have all of their email addresses and out of those 15, I’ve chatted consistently without about five of them, and I have those five ladies phone numbers. Two of them offered to pick me up at the airport; I opted for the one that I like more… So when I got to Barranquilla I had this beautiful girl, waiting there to give me a warm welcome! The moral of this story is that you need to get your butt online.
Step 2: Make friends on the plane, and in the airport. One of the best places to make friends and meet people, both men and women, is on the plane ride over. Plane rides are long and boring, and it’s the perfect place to start up a conversation with a stranger. A simple “where are you headed?”, can start up a conversation that could last the entire flight. I’ve met many male and female friends on the airplane and at airport gates while waiting for my flight.
Step 3: Approach and make friends! If you haven’t done step 1 and 2, then you’re last and only choice is step three. Some good people to befriend are taxi drivers, hotel personnel, waitresses, and cashiers. This approach is probably the toughest out of all three, and one of the main reasons is because of the time limitations you will most likely have on your trip. You’re also going to need some conversational abilities in the local language. This is why I strongly recommend going online first.
However, if you decide to take this route only, once you meet a girl in town, it’s going to take some time to build some trust, and if the girl works or goes to school you might not have enough time to make something happen. The benefit of meeting women online before you get there is that you will already have a certain amount of trust with the girl when you finally meet in person.
Approaching people on the streets is not easy for everyone but look at this way, if you’re in the lower tiers, there’s no easier place to approach women and people in general in the entire world.
But here’s a tip that will work in just about any location you travel too. If you see someone interesting, just ask them a question about the city. These are questions that should park YOUR genuine interest. Some questions can be:
- Do you know a good place to eat?
- Do you know a good place to get a drink?
- Can you tell me how to get to so and so? (park, court, hotel)
After you ask your question, you can add. “The reason I ask, is because I’m not from here, I’m visiting”
Those are some of my tips for traveling alone! Remember, you don’t have to be alone for the entire trip, most likely the only place you’ll be alone is on the ride the airport when you’re leaving because after that, it’s time to meet the women you met online and make more friends on the plane.
