First off, Latinos, just like any other ethnicity are not all alike, especially since their are so many Latin countries that have their own customs and way of life, not to mention variations within regions of the countries themselves ( for example, people from the coast tend to be warmer and more outgoing and people from the mountains or the interior tend to be more reserved- these are generalizations of course). Also your experience with a Latino born in a Latin-American country and a Latino born here will most likely be very different as would dating a Mexican for example, compared to a Peruvian. Many families tend to be traditional (and machista in the sense that the men are spoiled) especially Mexico and Guatemala, while countries like Venezuela and Colombia are less so. Again, these are generalizations and to be understood as such. As a female though, even if the man is not machista (some latin men are, some are not) sometimes the man's family expect that the woman will be traditional and cook and clean and take care of the man. The reason the latin families are growing is based on this traditional dynamic. You should reflect why you would like to date a latino. It seems that your reason for wanting to date a Latino is based on a positive prior experience. Perhaps you should consider which characteristics this person embodied and see if you can find a man that possesses those same characteristics, regardless of his ethnicity. In order to understand a latino, is to understand anyone, you have to talk to the person and get to know them as an individual. Yes culture plays a huge role, however everyone is different. Hope this helps. P.S. I'm of latina and european descent and have dated men of varying ethnicities.

RE: Sag in relationships
( I'm a Sag/virgo/aries). Whether he's a Sag or not - you need to decide if he DESERVES you. He may not be into you - if he was, he would be chasing you. Sags are centaurs and archers- they aim, shoot - fire after what they want. It's nice and all to worry about his needs (independence, etc.) however it doesn't sound completely reciprocal. Send a text or call him once and for all and ask him directly (Sags don't like B.S. or the run-around). Take it from there.
