I cannot believe the bias this woman has toward your services and others like it. Amy clearly has not been to South America and talked to the people and experienced the lifestyle.
I am a young executive with a large international company. I fell in love with the city, its people, and the lifestyle. I have never seen such friendly people. I would hardly call these people impoverished. These people have tremendous pride in themselves and their country. The Latin women I found were very kind and passionate, and not once did I feel like they were looking for a visa.
Not only are these women beautiful, but many also have very high morals and values that we seem to have lost in North America. Amy calls us losers, but I would ask her this: Would a loser head up an executive position in one of the largest food companies in the world? You are right, Jamie, when you talk about personal preference. Like everything in life, some things you like more than others.
I wish you the best success. We, as North Americans, have all but lost that which attracts me to South Americans. The women in South America are very special and their Latin genes produce a most beautiful, sensual and exciting woman. The men are strong but fall short of social expectations, which has been destructive to the state of marital bliss for centuries.
Their families are whole and strong and the entire population is passionate about everything. These are a people, descendants of the Mayans, The Aztecs, The Incas, and royal Castilian Spanish who flourish and celebrate and take time to live and love. The "Latina" has held to virtues that might be listed as "the joy of being a woman," feminine grooming, happiness that men are men, the desire to nurture a tight knit family, and a husband to provide a comfortable home while she tends to the comforts and needs of the immediate and distant family, and I am forced to add that they do so without keeping score regarding household chores.
After traveling the world with my wife for eight years and for another eight years after her death from breast cancer, I have experienced up close the dilemma that the South American woman faces, that which is termed Machismo. After returning to the continent, I have also seen up close the liberated North American woman who now suffers major increases in alcoholism, drug abuse, and heart disease coupled with a general back slide regarding dress and feminine grooming, not to mention her errant and disrespectful children.
In this liberated state, we are generally divorced by the age of 36, national average: I have had the misfortune to date a few gals from the US of A recently and have been severely disappointed and sometimes horrified at the lifestyle they lead. This has nothing to do with the economic capability of these women. They simply are unavailable to their children, their home, their man of the moment, and ultimately to themselves.
Even the most poor have laundry on the line, respectful children, and a smile on their face. Your hate mail section is interesting, and in publishing some of the same, you have certainly uncovered some of that disarray and anger owned by many western women. It is incredible to me that one would try to condemn that which they know nothing about, and if it were to be stated otherwise, no Latina would want what the western woman owns.
They certainly do not need to be saved by our frustrated, ill kempt, and angry western female. I suppose that when an entire female generation is being cast aside in lieu of something better the female will display anger and frustration. It must send a message that your service and services like yours are prolific because they fill a need. There is apparently a need, and you are apparently speaking to that need, both to the Latina and the American male, both of whom are tired of the fight.
The origin of that need becomes evident quickly, and I suppose that is grounds for anger though that anger, should be turned inward, not outward. The word "values" is very different from the word "virtues. The Latina is looking for male virtues, and the North American male is looking for comfort and appreciation, that which he values.
I have not been able to grasp the new idea that offering comfort to your husband is weak or subordinate. I think we are fortunate to live in an age where messages can be sent and introductions can be made via the Internet at light speed. This technological achievement has caused the world to become immensely smaller. Thank you for enabling this endeavor with your fine service and do not worry with the naysayer. The North American male has stopped looking for his feminine side and has begun looking South for an attractive, feminine, appreciative woman who is happy to be a woman who yearns to care for a good man.
I have come home only to miss that which I experienced in South America. Your service offers mucho. In I had my own business and lived and worked in the Miami area. I was in the process of going through a divorce from a typical American woman when I met and fell in love with a terrific woman from Colombia. I had always desired to get to know a Latin woman but she was the first "Latina" I ever had a relationship with.
We were together for six years before it ended, and they were the best years I have ever spent with any woman. My desire to seek out Latin women does not come from desperation but from my experiences in South and Central America.
While living and working abroad I have experienced the different ways that Latin American people approach life. Here in the USA we need to have two incomes to support our lifestyles. We get up, go to work, go home, eat, work some more, go to bed, and start over the next day. And do you know why we do this? Latin Americans have a different approach to life.
Their priorities are family, friends, and then work money. For them, quality of life does not come from money and possessions but from quality time spent with family, children and friends.
I am not saying they do not want nice things, but NOT when you have to sacrifice being with your family or friends to achieve them. However, for the women in matchmaking websites who are willing to look for love and respect outside of their home countries, it comes at a terrible price. They take care of their figures and love to dress femininely. There is nothing more beautiful on this planet than a woman, regardless of what she weighs.
But when a Latin woman gets dressed, she is going to look good and whatever she wears will be very feminine and appealing. Latinas are all woman and whether they are getting dressed for soccer, the mall, the grocery store, or a dinner out, they leave no doubt in your mind about their femininity; no matter what their size. So why would you want to work 60 hours a week, spend no time with your children or friends, just to keep a materialistic, ashamed to look feminine, American woman happy?
When the time comes and I am ready for another relationship, I will seek out another Latin American woman. And fortunately, if I happen to be in an area where there is not a significant Latin population, there are web sites like this one that can help me find the kind of woman I want to be with.
I read your hate mail letter from Amy. Man, she sounds exactly like my ex-wife. I actually tried to cut and paste it in an e-mail to friends because they would have sworn it was her. Everything in her hate mail is precisely why I would never have dated another American girl in my life. Four years ago I spent five weeks in Brazil during a vocational exchange through work. I left this country still drooling over blonde hair and Anglo smiles, and returned convinced that women from Latin America are by far more suited for me.
Not because I would strike out with American women, not by any stretch of the imagination. And I am loyal, moral, and a good man. In my case, I grew up in the northeast with European grandparents and my mother was first generation America. In Brazil I found that Latin women had greater conviction to the European value system that I was more accustomed to.
My best friend was of the same mind and eventually married a Chinese woman whom he too met here in the States. Neither of our wives needed us for green cards. When I met my current wife she was already holding a green card, gainfully employed with a Fortune company, and had applied for her citizenship. And like many of the girls I met in Brazil, she came for a very good family. She was used to a life of maids, servants, and attended the finest private schools.
The bottom line is that when I am sick she never leaves my side, when I come home we cook together and have dinner, when we visit her family they treat me as one of their own, without any suspicion, and we are so much in love with each other.
The finer points of being a gentleman, like opening car doors and pulling out a chair when she sits down at a restaurant, are lost on American women of today, but very meaningful to my Spanish wife.
That is so incredibly racist and bigoted it makes me ashamed to say I come from a country where someone would write that. I commend you for your service. Not everyone is lucky enough as I was to find a lovely Latin bride already established here in the United States. Your service does well to offer those interested in seeking something better in life than frozen pizza and an occasional dinner out at Applebee.
I love Latina women and have had long-term relationships with ones born in the U. These were good women who were honest and sincere and one of them I loved dearly. I would have married any one of them except for a few problems. Most American women Latina or otherwise are spoiled by the American way of life and expect everything and put you down or dump you when you cannot provide it for them.
At my age, the majority of women I meet have already been married and have had children and are just looking for someone to be with them in the golden years. Once a woman is married the first time, all the relationships she will have after that will be related to that first time, and it will be the benchmark for any relationship you will have with her.
I have met and known women from South America who have immigrated to the U. They are not pretentious by nature and are taught to value family above all things.
Once they make a commitment, they stick to it for life. They accept their roles and make sacrifices as needed within reason to keep the relationship and family intact. This is very important to the man when he is busting his ass and doing everything he can to provide for his family when the going is extremely tough. No man wants to go home and face even more humiliation and degradation when everything he can do is not good enough. Eventually, he stops going home, which leads to the current situation that makes foreign women desirable to American men.
It is the women who hold everything together in society and American women have forgotten that or were never taught it!
