How to make love with Latina girlfriend
With that line, she might just whip out the “fiery” personality that boy thought he had escaped.
Many Latinas are passionate, strong women who speak up for themselves and others. Sometimes people think they are yelling when they are really just projecting — emphasizing, if you will. In some Latinas, these tendencies are natural.
Latin America is a true mash up of skin tones and ethnic backgrounds; meaning there are no real physical outliers for the Latina woman. In the Caribbean and coastal Latin America, African slaves, indigenous tribes, and Spanish Europeans collided, leading to myriad physical outcomes. Some Latinas cannot tan because their skin is too pale. Some Latinas have dead straight hair. Some Latinas can pass for African American. There are also areas in Central and South America that have strong Asian backgrounds.
If she has relatives, for example, who speak very little English who want to speak to you in Spanish, and you know some, it's OK to try and bridge that gap. No one will be offended, and her family will probably appreciate 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]?" or attribute her behavior to just "being Latina."
