Do latin women go for skinny guys?

Postby drealm » Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:42 pm

Latin culture is ultra machismo. This boils down to men in latin America championing strength and brute force stupidity above all else. While most latin men I see aren't cut like Arnold, most do seem to be naturally fat. Being fat doesn't equal strength, but it does command more "machismo" than being skinny. I say this as someone who's a quarter Mexican and who has distant family that meets these observations.

However the rest of my none-mexican genes are cut from a different cloth. As a result, I'm very skinny, around 120lb. Would this be a turn off to latin women who are expecting to be dominated by 200lb fatasses? If so I may fare better in Asia, where skinny men are more common.

money trumps fat
marriage is a 3 ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring and then suffering.

But all things being equal, my impression is that latin women don't go for skinny very much. There's always the exceptions but i'm generalizing.

Personally, i think anyone that's skinny can easily fix that right up. A protein shake, eating well, and working out couple times a week will do the job.

And yes, i know, that's sometimes easier said than done.

...it's easier to get fat than it is to get skinny.

Mexico does not equal all of Latin America. In the south American countries I've visited, people tend to be much slimmer than Mexicans on average. Brazilians are hedonists and many work-out big time. But the most popular look is a slimish and cut beach build with a great tan, much better than being a bit fat guy I think.

A very slim and well dressed guy with a good face should be generally well received in countries like Colombia, Argentina, and Brazil unless he looks starved or something (at 120 lbs., how tall are you?).

Regular height in much of Latin America. But at 120 lbs., your BMI is just a tad over 18 which puts you just under the line of being underweight according to WHO standards, even if you have small bones. With an aggressive work-out and eating regime for building muscle, you could probably get-up to 130-140 and look much better, completely fit and buff. I think 120 lbs. is a bit too skinny for your stature.
