Maybe it’s the tango, the accent, or the hot temper, but there is something to be said about Argentinian men, isn’t there? You might have to repeat the phrase ‘no’ repeatedly if someone isn’t to your liking. This means that some men leave their mother’s nest at the ripe age of thirty.
I found this quote by Marlene Dietrich which might sum it up: “Latinos are tenderly enthusiastic. In Argentina they throw themselves.”Expect men to approach you when you are having a night out. As a result they don’t know how to cook, clean or do the laundry. Mothers tend to call their sons more often than they do in America, say a couple of times a day, or at the very least a couple of times a week.
If you think men in the states didn't cope with the changes of women in the workforce, women becoming independent, women earning their own money.
As Divas they demand nothing less than divine treatment from those they have bewitched. In Argentina, ‘gorda’ is a very common, loving term of endearment.Not only do you have to compete with the Argentine women who look impeccable in high heels and full makeup at the grocery store at 8am (while it totally crossed your mind to go in your pajamas), you have to compete with him. You start to doubt your own ‘from-the-shower-to-out-the-door-in-60 seconds-or less’ routine as you watch him meticulously exfoliate, shave, put on toner and anti-aging face cream, hair gel, cologne… For an Argentine man, that would constitute a late lunch. He never complains about always having to take his grandma to the doctor (which he follows up by taking her out for menta granizada gelato).Not all women in this country fit the stereotype of the Argentine femme fatale but there is definitely a subsector of women in this country that still fall into that category.The Argentine Serpentine fits under the stereotype of having drop-dead gorgeous model like features.
