Argentinian women are simply gorgeous. Those were my first impressions as soon as I landed in Buenos Aires after an eleven-hour flight from New York City. As I spent the next several months living in Argentina’s capital, those initial thoughts were only reinforced.
While not only were they beautiful, but, as I later found out, they were also one of the hardest women to approach and seduce.
In this guide, I want to talk about my experience meeting and seducing women in the country, but also bring in someone who knows about Argentinian women much more than I do: my friend Pepe who’s been living in Argentina for over ten years.
The following article is partly contributed by my friend Pepe, who’s originally from Miami but has been living in Buenos Aires for over a decade.
Let’s not beat around the bush and let’s just call things as they are: Argentinian women have a certain reputation when it comes to Latin America.
I know that many Argentinian women aren’t going to agree with that statement, but ask any Argentinian guy or Latin guy and they will nod their heads. It’s true.
While Argentina is located in Latin America, as a country Argentina bears little resemblance to its neighbors: Brazil, Chile or even every other country in Latin America. Argentinian women are just different. Different in every way.
So, what’s their reputation? Keep reading.
Argentinian Women Characteristics
First of all, they’re more European. They just are. They look European, act European and even lack a certain sexiness and charisma of everything that defines a Latin woman (to be discussed shortly).
An average Argentinian woman is a mixture of Spanish and Italian genes with some Portuguese thrown in for good measure. The majority of them have olive skin, so they wouldn’t be out of place in Spain, Italy or Portugal if you transport one there.
Nevertheless, while on the surface they look exactly like any Southern European, there’s a certain “something” that makes them somehow different from European women.
That something is hard to pinpoint, but it’s there.
Argentinian Women Personality
While I have met Argentinian women that have been friendly and helpful, the consensus is that Argentinian women are somewhat brash or arrogant does have some strength behind it.
There are certainly many more arrogant Argentinian women than, say, Brazilian or Colombian friendly who are, overall, much friendlier.
Argentinian Women vs. Latin Women
While Argentina is geographically located in South America—and thus Latin America—Argentina is much more European than pretty much any other country in both South or North America.
It just has a much more European feel.
The people “look” European, the cities have a European feel to them and just the overall mentality of the country is closer to, say, Spain or Italy—where the majority of the citizens are descended from—than, say, Brazil or Venezuela that feel much more Latin because of their native indigenous populations.
What kind of men do they like?
This is a good question. From my experience talking to many Argentinian women as well as seducing plenty of them, Argentinian love men who are tall, dark and handsome.
I’m just kidding.
Seriously speaking, though, like most of Latin American women, Argentinian women seem to gravitate towards their kind. That’s because Argentinian men are no slouches and they know how to approach and seduce women. Plus, they’re not bad looking.
Having said that, there are always women in pretty much any country around the world that are open to dating foreigners. To make your life easier, you have to know where to find these women and not waste your time on those who are only looking for local guys. And one of the best places to meet such women would be online (see below).
Moreover, I want to point out that being an American (or British), doesn’t seem to help your chances as the case is in other Latin countries. So, don’t play the “I’m an awesome American so you should have sex with me” card. That will backfire in a big way. It just doesn’t work.
How to seduce Argentinian Women
Like Ukrainian women, Argentinian women can smell BS a mile away and will endlessly test you to see if you are who you say you are. While they like to be seduced, they don’t want to feel like they’re being played.
When seducing them, be direct and honest. Try not to play too many games, and don’t try to be some smooth Don Juan. After all, they’ve been surrounded by Don Juans all their lives (Argentinian men), so they know the game.
Be smooth, but don’t come off too strong and aggressive, which will set you apart from the macho and direct Argentinian guys and raise interest in the eyes of the woman.
It also helps to be persistent. When I lived in Colombia, I met an Irish guy who had lived in Buenos Aires before me. Like every other expat who had lived in Argentina, he recounted how the women were difficult and how he couldn’t make anything happen for at least the first several weeks.
Then, something clicked.
When I pressed him further, he explained that the key to his success was persistence.
He told me about a time when he kept asking this girl to go out with him until she caved in and went out. Then, he kept pressing her to come back to his house. He told me that he had to do it no more than 5 times before she finally relented and agreed to see him again.
I’m not saying to be forceful and make her do something she doesn’t want to do, but it’s important to be persistent.
Eventually, she’ll either give in and allow herself to be seduced, or she’ll refuse. Either way, you will know where you stand.
Where to meet Argentinian Women in Argentina
Buenos Aires is the obvious start. It’s the capital and pulsating heart of the country. It’s a huge city with tons of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Plus, you can attend all kinds of cultural events, thus ensuring you’ll be able to meet the type of girl you’re looking for.
Buenos Aires has a flourishing coffee-shop scene, which is great for working and relaxing, especially if you’re a digital nomad who makes a living working line. Coffee shops are also ideal places to approach women since you’re usually in a relaxed, no-pressure situation.
Nightlife in Argentina is different
Argentinian nightlife is unlike nightlife in many other cities around the world is that it starts relatively late.
When I lived in Buenos Aires, I typically had dinner at 9 pm, went to a bar for some drinks at 11 pm and finally hit up some club around 1-2am.
So, if you’re an early riser, you will have a bit of a challenge adjusting to this nightlife. On the other hand, if you’re a night owl (like I am), you will feel right at home.
How to meet them in real life
While there are all kinds of tricks and techniques to meet women in real life, I like to stick to tried and try approaching. If I like a girl, I simply come over and talk to her. My approaches are generally direct; if I like a girl, I come over and introduce myself.
I found that this straight-up approaching goes perfectly in line with Argentinian’s European mentality.
How to meet them online
I think, by far, the best way to meet Argentinian women is by finding them online. Whereas Brazilian or Colombian women can be easily approached offline or online, Argentinian girls are typically on guard, so an online way is much better.
While they are many websites to meet Argentinian women, by far, the best one to do so is International Cupid (Latin American Cupid is a good choice as well).
