I agree with the answers above.  I am Mexican American, born in the U.S and I have a Mexican boyfriend, born in Mexico.  I have finally foung the ONE!  I am reaoizing my other relationships never worked because of cultural differences.  I too am offended when a guy asks me to pay half the bill, dresses too casual for a date, or does not tell me specifics about his day.  I feel loved when my mi amor does romantic things like sends me roses and love letters.  I think the act of courting in the American culture has evolved into a very unromantic practice.  I am shocked to see how quickly some of my friends jump into strictly sexual relationship and then years later move in and then "toss around" the idea of marriage.  In my Mexican culture the focuses are God, Family...AND FOOD!  Mexicans understand that famiily comes before anything, therefore, getting married, having a family is top priority.  I finally found the right one when I finally dated a man that knows and appreciates the same culture.  Relationships ar hard aleady and it helps when you have that in common.  Today's American men need to be brave and wait to court a woman that really is a lady and will appreciate a gentlemen!

i find since i am dating a Mexican women and we are late fifties both self sufficient that the women do expect the men to pay for everything and do not understand the American expression "sharing" They don't want to be involved with the everyday decision making but definitely make sure you open the car door for her, stand up at the table when she leaves and returns,and give her many flowers, not a problem really it just when it gets to the big ticket items you can go broke if you don't speak up.

I can answer questions about the Mexican usage of Spanish language, or Spanish language in general. Information about Mexican literature and politics. Tips and help for those planning to live or travel to Mexico City. I can answer general questions about civil and mercantile laws. I can`t answer Mexican history questions before 1970. I don`t have knowledge about tourist places besides Mexico City.


I am currently living in Mexico, after a period of being a student in Cincinnati, Ohio. I studied mercantile and civil laws for a Marketing Management major at a Mexican university. I also formed part of a writing workshop where my knowledge in Mexican literature and writing skills in Spanish improved.
