Women from South America or the US whose ancestors descended from Spain or Portugal are referred to as Latinas. They dominate the fantasies of men around the world. This post is about the older ladies and how to go about dating a mature Latina.
While the girls in their late teens or 20s get all the male attention due to their physical attributes, they often come across as naïve, silly, sweet, and innocent.
Given general poverty and cultural outlook towards girls in South America, it is common for girls to stay in the family home until they get married. Therefore, they seldom get to live on their own, become independent, and develop the confidence to take on the world.
That leads to a popular observation that Latinas mature slowly. Latinas in their 30s make a good choice for those looking for an understanding and supporting companion rather just physicality.
Why Should You Date a Mature Latina?
Once men hit a stage where testosterone levels do not dominate their thoughts, they seek lasting relationships and strong connections.
Latinas are believed to mature in their 30s and develop many personality traits that make them an attractive package.
In this section, we cover some of the most compelling reasons to date an older Latina woman.
They have made their share of mistakes in teens and early adulthood. They have learned that life is not all about bouncing from one fling to another. Mature Latinas are graceful, thoughtful, and respectful towards others.
You are less likely to be conned, as the ladies this age have established themselves financially. They are not seeking to marry a foreigner for the sake of money.
Young Latinas are well-known for their tantrums. The smallest of things can upset them and trigger unexpectedly irritating behavior. Mature Latinas are well past that stage and would save you that drama. They are looking for genuine compatibility and want to connect at a deeper level.
Beauty and Brains
Latinas age gracefully, and just like wine, get better with age. As they mature, they open themselves up to embrace different views emanating on account of cultural variation. There would be reduced friction on account of diverging views.
They adopt a healthier lifestyle, and it would likely rub off on you. Latinas of all ages look after their body, and as they grow older, they are more inclined towards the gym, yoga, and meditation.
They minimize unhealthy distractions and focus on living a healthy life. They know that their bodies no longer permit a lifestyle involving late-night pubbing and dragging themselves through the next day hungover.
Older Latinas know that communication is a two-way process. They develop into very good listeners. Next time you have a rough day at work or want to discuss something personal, you would find a very able companion in them.
Contrary to popular belief, age does not dampen Latinas’ passion. Though younger ones are looked upon as everlasting sex goddesses, the older ones have the same passion towards everything they get into – career, hobbies, and of course, men!
Latinas have always lived in an environment where females are caregivers. They nurture the family and put their interest on the back burner in the interest of the family. As they grow older, they become more conscious about caring for those around them.
Tips on Dating a Mature Latina
Now that you have enough reasons to date older Latinas, it is time to go for them. You must realize that dating an older woman is very different from dating younger ones.
People change with age, and what attracted them a decade or two ago would no longer cut it.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when dating an older Latina woman:
Age is just a number
Do not judge a lady based on her age. There is so much to explore in a woman than her physical attributes. It applies to you too. Do not try to hide your age, as your prospective partner would be interested in your personality rather than your grey hair or wrinkles. If anything, age is an indicator of experience!
An extension to the previous point, you need to be honest about age and everything else. You are past that stage where you need to hide stuff from your date for fear of being judged.
And in case you do get judged and rejected because you were honest, there’s nothing lost as you were not looking for that kind of person in the first place. Honesty assumes even more importance when you are on an online dating site.
Upload your best photo
Whether it is for a dating portal or your IM display pic, do a bit of homework and put up your best photograph.
That does not mean you make it unrecognizable with excessive filters. It is quite the opposite. Add a picture that shows off your best features. Let your wrinkles and grey hair be visible – it is a pleasant change in an increasingly artificial world of filters and effects.
Focus on interests and hobbies
Older Latinas seek bonding and emotional connection rather than physical attributes and an extravagant lifestyle. While making a conversation (or writing your bio on a dating website), focus on each other’s hobbies and passion. You never know when you strike a common chord, and things move spontaneously from there.
It is an evergreen trait that would impress women of all ages. More so, older Latinas who want to be respected for what they are and what they have achieved.
Following the basics of picking her up, dropping her back home, pulling chairs, opening doors, paying the restaurant bills, etc. would not hurt your chances one bit.
When two older people meet, they don’t need to change a lot about themselves. Just keep it simple, be grounded, follow the tips we shared, and you will have a nice time together.
