The Typical Peruvian Guy
by: Michelle Dinos

Hello!
I have been dating a Peruvian man for nearly four years and have spent a large amount of time in Peru during the last five years.

Based on what I have seen and on my own personal experience, this is what I can tell you about Peruvian men.

With regards to physical characteristics, I have found the majority of Peruvian men to be small in stature, especially compared to men from the U.S. or Europe. For example, I am nearly 5’4 and I am about the same height as many men in Peru, if not taller!

In addition, Peruvian men tend to be within the normal weight range, with only a small percentage being classified as obese.

With regards to personal characteristics, I have found men in Peru to be more affectionate than men from other countries.

For example, the majority are quick to hold your hand in public, put their arm around you in public, etc.

They also tend to be humorous and hard-working, as the “machismo” that reigns in Peru pushes them to be the bread makers of the family. However, this machismo also has its disadvantages.

While Peruvian men may be quick to show affection, they may be just as quick to expect their women to be domestic housekeepers, to not talk back, to follow along with what they want to do, etc.

While the level of machismo varies in each man, this way of thinking can cause women to feel disrespected and taken for granted.

In my opinion, I would say that Peruvian men do make good husbands IF there is good communication between both partners! This is essential as the machismo in Peru can lead to misunderstandings and resentment if women begin to feel a lack of respect or consideration from their partner.

If the man is willing to communicate and truly consider his wife’s opinions, that is a good man!

Controllers

I'm married to a Peruvian man with whom we have a son. He is generally a very good person and eager to please our family. But!!!!!!!

He is controlling beyond what is normal for any controlling person.

He does not believe that he is. He truly believes he is helping us. Our son and myself.

He is not abusive though. Constantly in my head weighing out his good intentions and his control issues.

He tries to make changes but it is instilled in him to be in charge. I am Americanizing him little by little! I hope.

We have been married four years and as for what I can tell you, they are wonderful lovers. Ready for sex constantly. Bring on the ice and put in ear plugs.

True about Peruvian men very controlling and they tend to be dangerous.

They're not supportive and want the woman to have her own money.

They're too jealous also ...their touchy feelings gets under my skin most times...it's sometimes unnecessary when we trying to have a conversation, think or relax ...ouch ! :-)



Finding help with your guy
by: Soledad

"Men and women communicate differently, and they have unique needs.

"A woman may long to share her feelings openly and often.

"Many men, on the other hand, try to preserve peace by solving problems quickly and avoiding thorny issues.

"How, then, can you bridge these differences and communicate with your husband or wife?"

Build Your Marriage Upon the Rock

I am a Peruvian-born man.

Never cheated on my wife.
Never treated her as a servant.
Enjoy being with my wife.
Lover her as much as I can.
I am growing old with her.
We have been married 37 years.

However, our marriage is founded on our mutual love and built upon the rock of our Christian faith. We practice our faith in all our daily doings.

We are not perfect or without fault, but love covers a multitude of sins.
