Chilean men can be termed as cheap when it comes to treating their women. They do not see the point in extravagant displays of love. So don’t cross your fingers for a random trip or an expensive dinner without occasion. However, they are incredibly romantic in general, and all their other subtle displays will more than make up for the lack of extravagance.

Chilean guys are very clean. They take care of their spaces just as well as they take care of their bodies. So if he invites you over to his place, it would be best to clean up after yourself. You would be surprised how irritating clothes on the floor or dirty dishes in the living room are to them.
