Dating a Peruvian Man: How Are Peruvian Men in Relationships

Machu Pichu is not the only world wonder in Peru. Their men are just as unique and exciting! The best way to appreciate this fact is by dating one of them. 

To give you a better idea of what you can expect, below is all you need to know about dating Peruvian men, what they are like, and how to keep yours happy. 

What are Peruvian men like?

They are total hunks 

Men from Peru are undeniably handsome. They usually have dark features, including brunette hair, brown eyes, and tanned skin. Their exotic features are a result of centuries of cultural fusion with influences from Europe and Asia. 

The result is drop-dead gorgeous men like:

  • Gaston Bolanos
  • Paolo Guerrero
  • Beto Da Silva
  • Christian Meier

Friendly & outgoing

These guys love to have fun and are always on the prowl for the next adventure. They are almost always outdoors, whether it is hiking the many beautiful Peruvian trails or enjoying water sports on the many beaches there. 

This proclivity requires that they be very friendly and outgoing, which is something you will see when he is dealing with both strangers and people he knows. So if you are the shy type, be ready for the shock of your life as you deal with some of the most extroverted males on the planet. 

Loyal to their families

Dating a Peruvian man, much like dating a Mexican man also means dating his family. These men are very close to their relatives, both close and distant. They tend to involve their families in every aspect of their lives, whether it is social, emotional, or even financial. 

This fierce loyalty means that, at times, the family’s needs will come before the needs of your relationship. So do not be surprised if he cancels your dinner date and instead drags you to his cousin’s place for a last-minute plan. 

Big momma’s boys

In addition to being super close with their families, Peruvian men are not just close but also dependent on their mothers. It is not uncommon to find men here staying home or visiting very often before they get married. Some still have their moms cook and do laundry for them. 

There is no doubt that this is unusual, but once you get over how weird it is that your 30-year-old boyfriend still has his mom buy him clothes, you will appreciate how beautiful the bond is. And in turn how well he treats women in his life, including you. 

Night owl personalities

For Peruvian men the day does not start until the sun has gone down. They love to do as much as they can get away with late at night. That means everything from your dates to Christmas celebrations start late into the day. 

In the same light, they do not like mornings. Your man might be grumpy and slow when he wakes up. Let him be and don’t try and force him out of his morning blues. 


These men value tradition, and it shows in how they treat their women. They believe in traditional roles where they are the providers and protectors in the relationship. He will, therefore, probably insist on picking up the tab, walking you home, and treating you like a lady. 

He will also expect the same from you. No, this does not mean that you quit your job and become a housewife for him. He wants a little femininity and respect. And if you cook and clean every once in a while, the better. 


Peruvian men in relationships are incredibly passionate. They have no issues opening up about their feelings. It doesn’t matter whether it is how much he loves you or how upset he is with how things are in his life. He will unapologetically cry, whine, and go on and on about what he feels without the macho attitude getting in the way. And I think we can all agree that this openness and vulnerability is what we all want. 

Notorious heartbreakers

If you are interested in a Peruvian guythen be prepared to deal with competition and the possibility of heartbreak. These men love to play the field, and if they have options, the chances are that they will explore them. 

They have been known to date many women at the same time. They have been known to lose interest and call things off suddenly. Therefore, you need to protect yourself, and the best way to do this is by holding out on freefalling until you are sure he is all in.

They can be irrationally jealous

In a surprising double standard twist, Peruvian guys can be very jealous. They do not appreciate it when other men try to make moves on their women, and they are very vocal about it. Some even take it as far as being uncomfortable with all-male interactions regardless of the other guy’s intentions. So be careful how you talk about Jose from the office or Paolo from the club. 

They like their women modest

South American women are known for their incredible hotness and sex appeal, and Peru is no different. However, most men in Peru prefer their women to be a little bit more modest. They want to know that they are the only ones enjoying your wonderful curves. It is in some way a bragging right for them as they are the only ones who can attest to just how sexy you are.
