So, naturally, I started crushing on the same people my classmates were crushing on. They were brunette, tan, cut, and always at the beach.I liked the way they talked, the kinds of things they did, the music they listened to.He was one of the members of the two crews I was responsible for sending to report on stories, though we actually didn't even meet for two months.I'd call and tell him where the assignment was, and he'd go meet the reporter there." He looked at the phone and said, "That's my sister." Apparently, his parents' house had been broken into, and his family had been trying to contact him. But he was so kind and reminded me that he wasn't that type of guy. Puerto Rican men need a secure, loving, supportive, loyal woman who doesn't control them, doesn't question everything that he does and doesn't suffocate him.They all seemed liked players to me — my cousins included. I watched my closest cousin cheat regularly on his girlfriend of 10 years. I have one female cousin who dated a Latino guy for three years, but when she got pregnant, he left. They were engaged when she found out he got his ex-girlfriend pregnant.She broke off the engagement, and he married his pregnant ex.
I said, "Here, your girlfriend has been trying to get a hold of you!
They went on one date, then another, and before they knew it, they were engaged.
Here, she tells how she came to realize that Sebastian was the right guy for her — and how he helped her get over her hang-ups with Latino men. I was taught early by all my aunts that Latino men are the most romantic sweet-talkers you'll ever meet, but as suave as they are with you, they will be like that with every other girl.
But I soon realized jocks could be pretty untrustworthy too.
I was slowly starting to figure out that a guy's nationality or ethnicity wasn't as important as his character.
