The most visited city in South America and the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, is also considered to be the cultural center of the country and has much to offer from its architecture, food, culture, and people.
When it comes to dating in Buenos Aires, you should know that while Argentinian girls there are renowned for their beauty, they also have a reputation for being harder to impress than girls from other Latin American countries.
A part of this is because Argentina does not have as big of a hook-up culture as other countries in South America do. The second part is because the women of Buenos Aires are typically not into foreign Western men as much as other Latina girls are.
For these reasons, dating girls in Buenos Aires may be a bigger challenge than you may have expected. That said, taking on this challenge can also be a way for you to develop your flirting and dating skills.
Here are the top places for meeting Buenos Aires women.
Dating during the day
Buenos Aires, Argentina women, are gorgeous!
They generally have a lighter skin complexion and a distinctly European look to them due to Argentina’s strong history of European immigration (notably from Italy, as over 60% of Argentinians have Italian descent).
That means that as a Western man yourself, you will be significantly less exotic in Argentina than you would in other South American countries such as Brazil or Colombia.
If you expect the Buenos Aires girl you approach on the street to fall for you right away simply because you’re from Europe or the United States, you’ll probably be mistaken.
Still, this is no reason not to practice your game during the day time. There are plenty of hot Argentina girls for you to approach, and you should embrace the challenge of walking up to a girl without being sure whether she’ll agree to go out with you.
You can meet Argentinian women in Buenos Aires wherever you find people, so this includes:
- coffee shops
- public parks
- shopping malls
The best general areas to visit are Santa Fe and the Avenue de Mayo.
The best shopping malls to check out are:
- Galerias Pacifico
- Alto Palermo
- Patio Bullrich
You’ll find plenty of girls here, but remember that most will be working during weekdays, so you’ll need to make your approach fast and to the point.
Dating at night
Besides not being into American or European men as much as girls from other Latin American countries, women of Buenos Aires are also less likely to sleep with you on your first date or after your first meeting.
That’s because Argentina has a much smaller casual sex culture. Yes, it does happen, but just less frequently than in other South American countries.
Still, this is no reason not to practice your night game in Buenos Aires, either. There are plenty of night clubs and bars throughout the city!
Even if the girl you end up talking to is not up for going back to your hotel room that night, you can still forge a connection with her and set up a date for later in the week.
The nightclubs in Buenos Aires run late, and most get busiest between 2 AM to 4 AM.
The best neighborhood to be in for the clubs and bars is Palermo, and here you can visit nightclubs such as:
- Asia De Cuba
- Brook Palermo
- Plaza Serrano
Each of these clubs attracts a younger crowd in the 18-25 age range, and the male-to-female ratio is usually even.
Meet Argentinian women online
One of the best ways to secure dates with girls in Buenos Aires is to set them up before you even arrive. You can accomplish this through dating apps and websites, the best of which is AmoLatina.com.
The reason AmoLatina should be your first option is that it has a substantial pool of members from Buenos Aires, and also draws girls who are more likely to want to date a foreign man.
Just stay on your guard for gold diggers and make sure you’re going out with a girl who legitimately wants the experience of dating a Western man rather than just really wanting what’s in his wallet.
Tinder is also an option, but make sure that you use either a Spanish bio or no bio at all. Otherwise, you may have a hard time finding matches.
Tips for dating in Buenos Aires
Here are some final tips for dating an Argentinian girl that you should know:
Make Plans Fast
Remember, the girls in Argentina will not be as eager to go out with you like the women from Rio in Brazil, Colombia, or other Latin countries.
As a result, your best bet for going out with her will be to make plans fast. If possible, try to set up a date on the same night or evening of the day you meet.
Follow Up Fast
Be sure to follow up very fast with the girl you just met after getting her number. Text her within the hour and try to set up plans as fast as you can after establishing rapport. If you wait a day or two, you’ll miss your chance.
Learn Some Spanish
Argentina is not like Mexico or Panama, where the people are exposed to the American culture and can often speak at least conversational English as a result.
The level of English proficiency in Argentina is deficient, and you will need to learn conversational Spanish to communicate with the girls (this is why your dating app bios should be in Spanish, for instance).
Wrapping it up
Buenos Aires women will put your dating and flirting skills to the test in a way that no other Latina girls will. That means that visiting this city will be a great way to sharpen your romance skills as a man!
Beyond that, Buenos Aires is one of the most livable places in South America and offers the same vibe and comfort as a European city but for a much cheaper cost of living.
For that reason, you may be tempted to stay longer than you had anticipated, which will provide you with even more opportunities for dating.
