Kissed by an Argentine

labiosShortly after proclaiming to my closest friends and family that I’d be moving to Buenos Aires, I was met with a myriad of questions. “What will you do for work?” “How will you learn the language?” Not surprisingly, however, I also fielded a number of questions (from my female friends, of course), which revolved around one thing: Argentine men.

Their reputation precedes them; they are men with charming looks, smooth words, and exquisite taste.  Are you interested in being a part of their world? Are you, the curious female reader, interested in being kissed by an Argentine?

You are foreign, so you’ll instantly be intriguing to them. And, true, Argentina is home to some of the world’s best kissers.  However, you’ll want to choose wisely, as it is also home to some of the world’s worst kissers (I cannot disclose how this information was obtained!)

Follow these 3 simple steps, and you’ll be well on your way to being kissed by an Argentine.

1) Eat.

And, eat liberally. Don’t pick and prod at your meal, enjoy it! There are few things an Argentine man enjoys more than to see his woman gleefully digging into the 4th course of the Asado he prepared. Just trust me on this one. If I had one US dollar for every man that has happily stated, “Wow! You really like to eat!” during a meal, then I would be able to run my own blue market money exchange operation.

 2) Don’t be crazy.

I’ve talked at length with various men about why they seem to enjoy foreign women so much. The most common response? Foreign women aren’t crazy. Simply put, many Argentine women hold their men on a short leash: they’re jealous, unappreciative, and complain, while also being obsessive about their looks. Argentine men are experts at treating women like queens. In return, express your gratitude! Stroke their ego! And, give them some personal space! Remember, it’s not all about you and he wouldn’t mind if you asked him a few questions about his day, too.

 3) Be open.

You’re living in a foreign country. Choose your company wisely; however, once you’ve chosen to invest in a certain man, open your heart and your mind. You’ll be surprised at all you learn!

So, welcome to the Paris of South America. May your travels be happy, and your kisses dulce!
