A Latin woman can give you all the attention in the world one second, and take it away the next.
At least, that’s according to a recent poll exploring European citizens' preferred nationality for a holiday fling. But I wouldn’t get paid and it would make for quite a tiring read.
The survey of over 50,000 European men and women aged 18 to 35 revealed that men in six out of eight countries surveyed (including Britain, Holland, Germany, Italy and France) said they'd like a relationship with a woman from Spain more than any other nation. It would be easy for me to answer that by simply writing two words over and over again: Penelope Cruz. (Although Penny, if you’re reading this, you can find me on Twitter.
These traits make an attractive cookie-cutter from which the archetypal Latin girl is cut. The Latin lady is, to us simple northern European types, something of a mystery.
OK, perhaps not as mysterious as an Inuit woman would be, but intriguing nonetheless.
The dark, brooding, knowing eyes; the throaty accent, rendering each comment a confusion of compliment and underhanded jibe; and lastly, an apparent aloofness.
If you’ve ever tried to woo a Spanish girl over a glass of Rioja, as I have, you can vouch for the fact that it’s a bit like conversing with a big cat.It’s a little bit confusing to say the least, a bit like doing a crossword through a telescope. In my experience, Latin ladies have quite a lot in common with their football counterparts (pre-Brazil 2014, it’s worth noting).They’re confident, cool under pressure and once on top, they know how to stay there.I’m full English.) So what else makes the Spanish woman so appealing to the European male?Stylish, headstrong and fiery are the words that first come to mind when thinking of a Spanish female (shocking generalisations, I know).Plus they move with a grace that makes their English counterparts look rather plodding and dull (Brazil 2014 included).
