Tradition is stronger than anything and it has helped us preserve some interesting habits.People say they don’t really believe in this stuff, but keep doing it anyway. Pregnant women wear a little red ribbon or a safety pin attached to their underwear whenever there’s a lunar eclipse to defend their unborn child from astronomical maleficence.
What these women do share in common are their advanced skills in everything makeup.
From the masterful use of a teaspoon for eyelash curling to the amazing ability to draw a perfect eyeliner line during a bumpy bus ride, Mexican women know makeup.
They are also familiar with every possible kind of weight-reduction plan.
The moon diet, the grapefruit diet, the apple diet, the just-a-random-amount-of-time diet — you name it, they’ve probably tried it.
I noticed that some of the white women, especially many of the hotter ones did not approve of this.
I found it entertaining because they were the types that would not want to be known to be associating with a Mex guy because of the social circle they linked to. You would be very high on my libido meter though, I am sure of that. In reply to the older guys liking younger black women I have noticed many of the black women who I have talked to and not dated seem to be annoyed that men look at them as sex objects.
Under normal circumstances, they tend to be the most loving, caring, and affectionate women in the whole world.
Anyone who has or has had a Mexican girlfriend knows that their displays of affection can be stifling, which is actually good.
Women also tend to have an overstock on red and yellow panties that reflect their wishes for true love or money for the New Year (depending on the current necessity).
And there are some others who buy an image or figurine of Saint Anthony of Padua, put him on an altar with some candles, and place it upside down until the day the miracle happens and they find true love. The psychological scars as a result of being raised by Mexican mothers are surely inside every one of us, but that doesn’t mean we cannot have a functional relationship with them as grown ups.
The closer they are, the stronger these transitions become and it’s quite common to misinterpret the complexity of their bond based on a discreet observation.
