Dating a playa
I wrote earlier about what a disaster the cesspool of Cancun is and how you should never go there.
Don't call her 'spicy' or 'feisty.' Unless she uses those words to describe herself, in which case she may not mind if you do either. An ex-boyfriend once asked me if he could call me his "little tamale." I know I like to eat, but (a) no, and (b) WRONG COUNTRY DUDE. The sooner she gets you cleared by mami, papi, and the rest of the crew, the sooner she'll know whether she wants to keep you around or not. If you ask her to be a 1 at a wedding or big family affair too early on, she'll think you're getting serious, so if you're not, don't do this. A date's not the time to bust out the few phrases you remember from Spanish 101. But that said, if her family asks if you want to speak in Spanish while you're together, go for it. And if she's important to you, making a little effort goes a long way: It IS OK to ask questions or share a general interest in her culture or background; it's NOT OK to fetishize her or ask her "why Latinas always do [insert thing]?
out there, so when you make dinner reservations for 8, you might want to tell her to meet you at 7 (just in case).
On the plus side, if you're going to any Latin-specific events (her family's throwing a party, etc.), no one cares if you show up two hours after the specified time on the invitation. Commit these words to memory: "I'm on my way."No, no she's not.
