Dating a Mexican Man – What to Expect & Signs a Mexican Guy Likes You

Mexico is widely regarded as home to some of the most desirable singles in the region. Mexican women, in particular, get a lot of hype with their ethereal beauty and infectious personalities.

However, Mexican men have just as much to offer.

If you are thinking of dating internationally, then you are in for a treat with these ones. 

Here is more on what to expect when dating a Mexican man and the signs a Mexican guy likes you!

What to expect when dating a Mexican man?

They are extremely passionate

When a Mexican guy sets his mind to something, he will not hold back on his efforts and intention to see it through. That is something you will get to enjoy in your relationship. Whether it is your sex life or pursuing you, he will be very passionate and intense, and it will be awesome. 

They are very kind and loving

Mexican men are also caring when they like you. It has a lot to do with how they were brought up. The values of kindness and selflessness are instilled in them through their interactions with their families and communities. You will see it in how he always insists on helping you out and taking care of you. 

They are funny

As women, there is probably nothing more attractive to us than a funny guy, and boy, are Mexican men funny! There is just something about how those jokes come out in their heavy accents when they speak English, making them so much funnier. 

To get an idea of what kind of humor you can expect, look up the following Mexican comedians:

He will cook for you a lot

Mexican men love a good homecooked meal. So do not be too surprised if a lot of your romantic times are at your home or theirs. It isn’t him trying to be cheap and weaseling his way out of paying for a date. He wants to impress you with his cooking skills while spending time doing something fun. 

They love to show off their women

Another great thing when you date a Mexican man is that you will be treated like a real queen. He will want to show you off not only to his family and friends but to the whole world. It could be through blatant PDA or even an early introduction to those close to him. Who wouldn’t want such validation?

They are honest almost to a fault

Mexican guys are brutally honest, but it is a sign that he likes you.

He will not let you leave the house, looking like a clown to spare your feelings. He will not tiptoe around your character flaw to avoid conflict. He will say it as it is, and though it might hurt in some instances, it is crucial to understand that it comes from a good place.

They are very handsome

Finding a hot Mexican guy is not hard in a country full of Adonises. These men are typically tall, dark, and elegant, and they have the macho man confidence to match. Some great examples of the eye candy you can look forward to are:

  • Diego Luna
  • Gael Garcia
  • Diego Boneta 
  • Aaron Diaz
  • Rafael Amaya

Signs a Mexican Guy Likes You

You’ll hear lots and lots of sweet talk

Mexican guys are very romantic and brought up to be expressive and straightforward. That means you will not only see these characteristics, but you will also hear them too!

They love to reassure their partners of their love, and you will have a lot of compliments constantly thrown your way. If your man notices those subtle little things you do to dress up, there is definitely a spark. Their Mexican accent further adds to their sex appeal, making them irresistible.

Their actions speak louder than their words

Yes, these guys have a way with words.

However, they are not all talk and no action. When you date a Mexican guy and he is genuinely into you, he will back up his sweet words with actions. Some of these include:

  • Plans to introduce you to family and friends. 
  • Keeping his promises. 
  • Going out of his way to show you he cares.
  • Planning back-to-back dates. 
  • Making efforts to get to know you, not just talk about himself. 

You’ll be treated to old-world chivalry

Mexican males are brought up in a macho culture, where it is cool to be rough. If your man suddenly becomes this 15th-century anachronist who opens the doors, addresses you with added respect, mellows down in his actions, and softens his personality when you’re around, this is a strong sign you’ve blown him away.

He touches you a lot

Physical proximity is a part of Latino culture. However, if your man cannot stay away from you and maintains close contact whenever you are with him, that can be a subtle indicator of what’s brewing inside. Hands around shoulders, frequent hugs and kisses, holding hands while going around, and other similar gestures indicate he is attracted to you.

He treats you to lip-smacking delicacies

No Latino culture is described well enough without mentioning food. It is an integral part of all life events and celebrations. Despite their wannabe macho image, Mexicans like to cook for their near and dear ones. If he invites you over and cooks for you (or takes you to different Mexican restaurants to show off the country’s cuisine), that is a sign of how much he likes you.

You get introduced to family and close friends

Mexican men love showing off their lady to family and friends. Though it is common for them to invite friends over for family gatherings, you will notice when he gives you special treatment. He will make sure you’re introduced individually to each family member. If he is confidently holding hands in front of those close to him, that’s a strong sign.

He plans music and salsa dates exclusively with you

One important thing you need to know when you date a Mexican man is that he is probably an unrelenting romantic, with music and dance forming a part of his DNA. If your dates are becoming too private and his dance moves get seductive by the day, you are definitely in for a treat. The stereotypes of Mexicans being hopeless romantics, charming women with their singing, dancing, and guitar don’t exist without reason!

Dating Mexican Men – Our Final Tips

Date Sexy Latinos

Here is how to impress a latino man:

Learn how to cook

As mentioned, these men love to cook, but they also like to be cooked for. So you might want to pick up a Mexican recipe book as you pack for your trip down south. That way, you will get to his heart through the quickest possible route – his stomach. 

Be ready to handle a little bit of spice

Dating a Mexican man, much like dating a Cuban manmeans having to accept his culture. Mexican cuisine is a massive part of it and consists mainly of very hot and spicy dishes. If you want to score bonus points with him, you will have to learn how to fight through the pain, sweat, and tears and enjoy that food. 

Respect the sacred game

Football is a huge deal for these guys. National, regional, and international leagues are followed religiously all over the country. If you are not already a super fan, you need to learn how to adapt and respect his passion for the game.

Here are a few tips on how to do this:

  • Show interest in the game by asking him to explain it to you.
  • If you are not interested, let him watch it in peace. 
  • Plan dates and surprises around his love for football. 
  • Support his team. 

Take a dance lesson or two

One of the main challenges you will face as a white woman dating Mexican men is keeping up with your man on the dance floor. Whether it is a traditional salsa or modern fusion pop, learning how to dance will impress him. It will also make your dates a lot easier as most of them will involve dancing in one way or another. 

It will help a lot if you are family-oriented

Mexican lovers, like Argentinian men, value their families, and a lot of them are interested in starting their own. To make the relationship work, you need to put effort into getting to know those who are near to his heart. You should also show enthusiasm at the prospect of starting your own family, especially if you have a strong enough connection that allows you to see a future with him. 

Let out your feisty side but show some submission

Mexican male gender roles put the guys at a point of authority in their society. However, as with most Latino cultures, Mexicans love their Mexican women feisty. To make it work, you must strike the perfect balance between being strong or independent-minded and submissive to the macho male authority. 

Let him chase you

Let him show that he is genuinely interested in you. Delay your dates and see if he has the patience to wait for you, or he’s quick to move on with someone else. Once you are with him, see if he is interested in your life and asks questions about your interests, ambitions, dreams, and family.

Do not jump into bed at the first available opportunity, as there are too many men around the world who behave nicely just for sex.

But don’t let him control you

Machoism culture is dominant in Mexico, and a girl is supposed to look after her man, eat after him, be dependent on him for all her needs and not step out of the house without him to socialize.

Though it is sexy to have the man take charge, plan dates, and make the first move, do not let things slip away to a stage where he controls every aspect of your life. Be assertive in what you want.

Trust but verify

Mexican men know how easily their accents and looks attract women. There are many aspiring womanizers who would take advantage of this and talk sweet just to get you to bed.

If their social media doesn’t have their pic, you have never heard the names they claim to have, and they are reluctant to mention their locality or discuss their job, watch out!


In short – Mexican men are awesome! They are good-looking, sexy, kind, fun, and intentional. Honestly, what more would you need from your man?

The key to making it work when you date a Mexican guy is to respect him. Respect his manliness, respect his family, respect his views – it is indeed the quickest way into his heart.
