3 good things (and 3 bad things) about Peruvian girls
A long time ago I learned a really simple sales trick. People are suckers for anything they think is exotic. We’ve all seen those cheesy web ads with claims like “Swedish Scientists Discover Miracle Compound Better Than Steroids!” You or I might not fall for this, but a lot of idiots do.
One of the most common versions of this strategy is one in which the marketer claims that [Country X] has the most beautiful girls in the world. And, lucky for you, they all have a sweaty, desperate, middle-aged man fetish. Could this day get any better! After just three payments of $19.99 you too can learn the secrets to seducing Moldova’s hottest women.
Because of the fact that most articles about foreign women are accompanied by a sales pitch, there are never any downsides. American girls are all smelly trolls and foreign girls all look like supermodels. The entire nation of Brazil looks like a model shoot and Eastern Europe is only populated with girls who look like they belong in a Victoria’s Secret catalog.
Since I have some down time this afternoon, I decided to make a little list of three things I do, and don’t, like about Peruvian girls.
1. Good: Peruvian girls are nice.
A few days ago I went online and decided to take a screenshot of the first three girls that popped up when I did a search for single girls in Iowa. As you can see, the results turned up a prostitute, a woman who’s 30, and a girl with “poor genetics” (wink wink nudge nudge).
I did the same search in Lima and turned up with this:
Even if you don’t necessarily like what any of the girls look like I think we can all agree that hanging out with someone who describes themselves as “sincere and fun” would probably be more enjoyable than spending time with a brazen hooker or Big Bones McGee.
1. Bad: Peruvian girls are manipulative.
Because of the fact that girls are nice, you can easily get tricked into doing stuff with them like going to the movies or attending their friend’s birthday party. It isn’t really a huge deal, but it isn’t something that would ever happen in America. When you’re halfway through a movie and realize that you got duped into going, it is kind of unnerving. You briefly feel like the dorky male protagonist from every single 90’s sitcom ever produced.
2. Good: Peruvian girls usually have actual interests.
I could summarize most American girls I’ve dated in three or four words. “Had lots of tattoos,” or “Pretended to be nerdy.” “What do you do?” is the worst question to ask in the United States. It guarantees that the conversation is about top become really dull and that you’ll be seen as a boring dork. Here you get a lot of different answers. If a girl says that she likes to travel she’ll actually have a list of places she’s visited and reasons that she liked them. “Uh… I don’t know,” is not a response that I’ve heard here.
2. Bad: Weird cultural stuff.
Guys who love to complain that American girls are high maintenance have never dealt with foreign girls. A trip that would take 10 minutes on foot requires a cab ride. Also, every single girl lives at home forever. And a lot of girls like showing you off to their friends and family. While this isn’t a huge problem or anything, it is a little strange. I don’t like social gatherings anyway so I just stand around awkwardly and say “Bien” a lot.
3. Good: Girls are fun to hang out with.
One time in America a girl said that she wanted to break up with me. My first thought was “Awesome!” Two minutes later I was humming a jaunty tune and practically skipping down the street. At the risk of sounding like a huge weirdo, I genuinely prefer being by myself when I’m in America. Off the top of my head I can’t think of a single girl that I ever missed when we weren’t together. While that probably sounds like some cool brag, its really not that fun. Here I actually have fun hanging out with girls. Even doing stupid stuff like practicing my Spanish flashcards with them is enjoyable.
3. Bad: Girls are fun to hang out with.
If you’re hanging out all day its hard to get work done. I’ve had to get really good at things like time management and goal setting in order to still cram all my work in. While this has been a tad bit difficult to do, I’ve managed. Somehow.
Although Internet marketers and shady dudes running legally questionable foreign dating sites love to bring up that a certain country is better than the United States, there are just as many cons as there are pros. Girls might be more friendly, but they are also more subtly manipulative. The culture might promote people to have different interests, but there are also all kinds of weird things that would never happen in America. While there are good things, there are still plenty of other factors that balance these out.
P.S. If you’re looking to start dating or hooking up with hot Peruvian chicks, LatinAmericanCupid is an incredibly easy site to meet them at. This is especially true if you’re on a short schedule (like a two week vacation) since all the girls on the site have a major thing for foreign men.
While you do have to shell out a few bucks for a premium subscription, LatinAmericanCupid is 100% worth the investment.
