Life In Puerto Rico: Puerto Rican Men vs. US Guys – Dating Comparison

Sheeeee’s back! Our newest girl columnist Madonna, is here once again to grace our procrastination endeavors with some of her patented efforts in the art of adding insult to injury towards the forsaken island, and crime capital of the world: Puerto Rico… This time, she continues her exploration of the Puerto Rican culture, with another installment on the dating scene in Puerto Rico, and honors us with a rendering of the differences between Puerto Rican Men and American guys…

As always, here’s Madonna herself enlightening us on what compelled her to write this next article comparing – from a women perspective, of course – the dating scene in Puerto Rico and the US, and the differences between Puerto Rican men and American Guys:

I’m currently not on the island and you know what that means…a new article! It’s been forever since I’ve written for… I just haven’t had my creative juice flowing. I will say though, I’ve seen some really crazy shit happening in Puerto Rico lately. Recently, I was in Plaza Escorial (Editor’s Note: also known as, Cacolandia) and I helped catch a pathetic, but good looking and clean-cut thief, who was stealing a “Totto” (hilarious) fanny pack (even more hilarious!). As a reward, Wal-Mart gave me a $50 gift certificate because they were shocked that I actually told them… Apparently, most people here in PR don’t say anything when they see shit like that going on… Wooohoo! I felt like a true Samaritan!

Life In Puerto Rico: Puerto Rican Men vs. US Guys – Dating Comparison — By Madonna

While I was waiting for my latest flight outta here, I decided to compare and contrast US guys and Puerto Rican men according to experience…

Anyways, here’s a list of the dating differences between Puerto Rican Men & American Men…

Life in Puerto Rico: Dating Comparison – American Men in the Tristate Area

I miss my Tristate area guys!

They have their own style, persona, and a swag that’s so different from the majority of the Puerto Rican men here – another reason why I need to move back, but not before I take advantage of the island’s stupidity to reach that top spot on the Forbes 400 Listbuahahahaha (evil laugh).

Here’s a quick background of American men, based on my dating experiences with them:

  • American men keep their nails, hands, and feet, neat and trimmed.
  • US guys dress well at all times, and they especially dress suitably according to the occasion.
  • Of course, every American guy loves their car, but before they love their car, they love themselves first.
  • Believe it not, but chivalry still exists within these tough NY guys. Chivalry amongst American guys is at its best in the South especially.
  • Most single American guys between 25-35 years of age don’t have kids, and if they do, the they have at the most one or two kids.
  • Sex… well… it depends on the particular race here. You have your Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Filipino-Americans, etc. These kinds of American guys are mixed with their soft, gentle, and non-rhythmic interlude (gringo pendejo side), and then towards the finale… they end it all how an animal ends it – boning your brains out and… DONE!

By the way, that last whole scenario on average lasts a solid 5 minutes, so you better make ‘em count, girls! (That’s something my boys need to work on.)

Life in Puerto Rico: Dating Comparison – Puerto Rican Men & Hygiene

Alright, are you girls ready for this? Are you sure? Okay… Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Puerto Rican men do not – I repeat, DO NOT – keep their nails neat or trimmed. It seems that somehow, someway, they always have that one long troll-nail on their hand. Ask them why they have it, and their answer tends to be something along the lines of:

  • To count money better” – Um-hum… Suspicious but okay, I guess;
  • “I need that extra inch to scratch certain areas.” – Gross;
  • “To give you pleasure” – Umm… hell to the fucking no, you don’t! You might cut my tube or give me a UTI, or even an STD… So Fuuuuck you!
  • Or just because…

The truth is… for Puerto Rican men that troll-nail encompasses their crack-sniffing finger! So don’t trust any PR guy with a long, cruddy nail — not just because it’s fucking nasty, but also because it probably means that he does indeed count lots of drug money, as the following Puerto Rican thug so proudly illustrates for us…

FYI, girls… It seems that the majority of Puerto Rican men have that crack-sniffing troll-nail here. So take notice.

Life in Puerto Rico: Dating Comparison – Puerto Rican Men & Fashion

Few Puerto Rican men dress well here in the island, but I have to say; the styles amongst Puerto Rican men are kinda extreme.

You have the dressy mix of the European gigolo shirts with the embroidery, pointy-beak shoes…  and then you have the other extreme of banging-ass jeans amalgamated with the beautiful visual spectacle of some yellow-brownish stained undies, not much unlike this next illustration of sexiness…

Either way, it’s just an embarrassment waiting to happen every time Puerto Rican men step out that door to go out and murder someone, er… go to church.

Try going to a formal gala wedding where you’re all decked out in your Sunday’s best, and you see someone looking like fucking bum just rolled outta rehab with the following ensemble as clothing:

  • The added bonus of some disgracefully dirty Ecko Unltd jeans – yeah, the same one Miguel Cotto endorses.
  • A pair of Jordan sneakers – and those are clean, of course (can’t fuck up the Jordan’s).
  • Some Sean Paul dirty/unstitched turtleneck sweater – when it’s an outdoor wedding and it’s 101 degrees)
  • A huge fake blinged-out chain with a Puerto Rican flag on it – since of course, we know you’re Puerto Rican because 99.98% of the family is Puerto Rican… and you live here, too.
  • And last but certainly no least, a pair of deck out Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses – even though it’s a freaking night wedding.

After seeing that, I just wanted Zeus to strike me down with a vicious thunderbolt…

Life in Puerto Rico: Dating Comparison – Puerto Rican Men & Cars

They might as well live inside their cars here in Puerto Rico, because most of their money is spent on pimping out a 1986 Honda Accord with blue halogen lights, a sound system featuring a bass so loud that it would kill the entire population of blue whales in the Pacific Ocean, the infamously annoying racing muffle that would make even a NASCAR redneck deaf, some flat screen TVs on the seats… and a car in your car so you can drive while you drive.

After all that, no wonder some Puerto Rican men can’t even afford a happy meal…

Okay, so maybe there’s some Puerto Rican men that don’t need to pimp out their car and already have that Aston Martin that they only park in handicapped spaces to avoid scratches… But the reality is that while his car may be nice and neat, he probably still lives with mom and dad off of government coupons, and I assure you, his room will probably look like Jesus took his last holy crap in his hot mess of a room – You think I’m kidding…

Don’t let the fancy or pimped out cars fool you ladies; it’s a cover up!

Life in Puerto Rico: Dating Comparison – Puerto Rican Men & Chivalry

Chivalry? Who? What? You just tell that shit to them. Just tell ‘em Puerto Rican men about that word, and you’ll get this a response that will much resemble something like this…

Calle 13 Funny Deja Show

You tell them that, and they’ll think it’s a stripper’s name or Daddy Yankee’s newest reggaeton song.

If you wait for the guy to open the door, he’ll ask whether you’re too handicapped to open your own door.

You go on a date, bring your own money and expect to go Dutch, at the very least, 90% of the time. Also expect it even after you’ve been with him for 5yrs, living together, sucked his dick numerous times until it goes numb, given him sex everyday of every hour. I mean don’t get me wrong, there should be times when you plan beforehand to go Dutch, but not after you’ve completely stuffed your face.

Life in Puerto Rico: Dating Comparison – Puerto Rican Men & Kids

Basic math: In terms of Puerto Rican men, add 2 kids for every one of the years in between the ages of 25-35… I have yet to meet a PR guy my age who doesn’t have at least 5 kids, a couple more in waiting, and 12 crazy baby-mamas as the cherry on top of their sundae!

Oh, and of course, paying endless child support – and being delinquent on them – is sort of a tribal ritual to be proud of for Puerto Rican men; I am so very sorry guys, but after that many kids and baby-mamas, your dick does us all a favor and it should just fall off, really – or better yet it should be ostracized from society!

After that many dips, the guy is tainted, so it’s extremely rare to find a guy with no baggage here. As such, my piece of advice for you girls: Run a background check on them before you get serious — Just trust me on that one.

Life in Puerto Rico: Dating Comparison – Puerto Rican Men & Sex

Now, at this point you may think I dislike all Puerto Rican men! But you’re wrong!

I Heart Puerto Rican Men Keychain

You guys are conquistadores in the sex department! All that romantic Spanish sweet-talking you do will automatically get a flood going in any woman’s panties – no matter the age.

For all I know, you could be calling me a fat slob in Spanish and I wouldn’t have the slightest idea about what the fuck you’re saying. As long as everything you’re saying is in Spanish, I don’t care… It’s just so damn sexy! It feels like I’m riding Antonio Banderas when these Puerto Rican men do their romantichy talk in Spanish.

Oh, and the hip movements that are involved during the event are, in a word: Glorious… I guess that, in hindsight, all that Reggaeton music and perreo-dancing is good for something other than to incite violence and demean women…

Puerto Rico Reggaeton Perreo Dancing

So there, you see? I love me some Puerto Rican men after all!

(Editor’s Disclaimer: Our girl Madonna does NOT hate Puerto Rico… She only hates Puerto Ricans that give Puerto Rico a bad name. So please, try and properly comprehend and evaluate the tone, sarcasm, and satire behind her compelling, realistic, and hilarious takes on her experiences as a newbie on the current shitty state of affairs of this forsaken island… In other words, don’t be an idiot if your gonna comment. And if you’re from Puerto Rico, and you get offended by this article, as it’s happened before — and again — then you should immediately get that stick out of your ass and recognize that you are, precisely, a part of the problem.)

      We have made it clear in multiple disclaimers that this is NOT meant to be taken seriously. It’s sarcasm and satire. It’s an exaggeration of the truth with quite evident hyperbolic connotations.

      Somos de Puerto Rico también — hacemos cosas como esta para reír en vez de llorar, debido a la desafortunada situación actual en la que se encuentra el país.

    Where should I Start ? As a lifelong NYRican Man now living in PR 1yr I’ve definitely seen my share of sorry ass excuses for “Men” here. Not all but most, from all age groups. Men with little ambition4hardwork n lots4partying,drinking n drugging. Single or married grown men with or w/o kids still living at home with Mom n maybe Papi. Multiple Babies Mama’s n major pension(Child support)drama. Its such a problem that if the Father doesn’t pay child support the courts make his parents pay. Mind u, most of the time they lie n cheat 2Baby mama’s about income 2pay peanuts4support of their children (letting the Gov’t foot the bill) meanwhile partying like a Reggaetonero. As 4 “their women”? Look at the incredibly high incident rate of Domestic Violence (mostly Brutally severe and fatal), reported n unreported. Most of the Women and girls here suffer some form of PTSD from the way that some “PR men”(Insecure, jealous, demanding, controlling,lying,infidelity issues,disrespectful)mistreat them and just a total disregard for how a Beautiful PR woman needs and should be treated. Double standards and Great Grandfathers mentality towards todays Woman passed down from fathers to sons perpetuates a vicious cycle against their daughters, sisters, cousins.
    Enough said !
    I’am Proud to be a PR Man, I Love my PR Brothers who handle their business like Men do and I Love my PR Women !
    We just need to wake up !
    As we say here En La Isla Del Encanto,
    “Cono Despierta Boricua !”

    Puerto Rico and it’s People are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL !

    Que Viva Puerto Rico !

    Recognizing that it’s satire, I think maybe you went too far. After all, Puerto Ricans have been downtrodden for centuries, and especially since the US takeover in ca 1900, so there’s been a disruption of culture there, even agrarian folk culture. Yes, it does seem like the brothers above discredit their own arguments by their use of debased language and obscene assertions about your motives, but they feel insulted. And the comparison to vegan hipsters is priceless. American, North American men are materialistic, smug, quietly and stealthily aggressive. Puerto Rican men may sometimes be crude, but I’ve known Boricuas who are sensitive, brilliant, funny, and talented and ambitious too. Many. So you should at least partially apologize, especially about the lack of cleanliness, I think.

    I can’t believe I read this bullshit. Seriously you say your boricua and do it for laughs and satire but your only giving us a worser reputation. You got millions of americans that fear us already when they see us walking towards them and you have to dig a deeper hole for us to climb out of and prove that we are decent loving happy people. It’s boricuas like you that give us a bad rep.

If anything, it’s fucking americans that are shit. I lived in Puerto Rico for ten years and I’m fucking Puertorican, and all that time that I lived over there, I would once in a blue moon see all this fucking shit you are talking about.

    There is no way to make one another happy…The only thing we can do is find ways to accept one another’s experiences and opinions…This is in itself proving to be difficult because humans are competitive, egotistical, and refuse to adjust to any major change in the process of life! I am learning myself to understand more that we are so much alike that it is kind of scary…I only can hope that each one of us can find this same understanding and then make the key effort to teach it to our children! We are what we are taught, and that is a FACT!

    Well i am also from the u.s.a and was born in puerto rico in 1958 and i have seen much terrible behavior on the part of americans (white’s and boriqua’s)But the fact that you explain some truth about certain persons or your own observations of them , It realy exposes some real big flaws of your own. First of all you may have clean nails but you have a very dirty use of language and you belittle yourself by how you speak.The way you boast about your knowledge of mens dirty clothing,nails ect suggest’s that you don’t respect yourself , one could say (with all the repsect that a human being deserve’s)that you are basically a hore.You see my dear friend it’s probably not your fault that you are treating yourself this way because it’s the way you’ve learned to live , I hope this helps you to reflect on you first.PS i did’nt forget that you had said that you were just being humorous.

    This is the most disgustingly false article I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading. My entire family (obviously myself included) is from Puerto Rico. My boyfriend as well. I don’t mean from the states, I mean from the island. Which by the way, Puerto Ricans are American. Even the men in the casarillos (the hood) are outstandingly put together. They have nice haircuts, clean clothes, clean appearance, and are over the top hygienic. I’m not sure where in Puerto Rico you were hanging out, but this whole article is ass backwards, uneducated, and ignorant. There is trash everywhere from every ethnic background.

    Girl, you have it all wrong!!! Your experience must be limited to broke hobo-looking mfs. I think your problem is who you attract in general. It is not only unfair, but inaccurate to generalize your bs assessment of the bums you attract onto the men living on our beautiful island. Most do not have that crusty long nail. Most are also clean and we’ll-dressed. It is also a gennerally accepted fact that the men pay on dates. They are usually protective of their women. Chic, you need to slow your roll with your bs. You are not being funny or satirical. You are just hating the fact that only the 1% group of hobo bums find you attractive.

    Nothing could be further from the truth in this racist and bigoted rant.

    What the hell were you thinking? Lol your level of education shows. Not too bright.

    I’m an educated boricua who spent many days at ground zero pulling out dead bodies from the pile. You have no clue what you’re talking about nor the stupidity that an article like this perpetuates.

    I think she went or stayed in the “wrong” place when she was in puerto rico. I am dating a pure puerto rican guy right now and i can tell you, for those days i was with him(in bed, or at work) he has been clean, neat and organized. I guess you just have to learn not to generalize men from that place or from any place and doing comparison be it for humor or for popularity sake, it’s always best to keep it fair. Pros and Cons for both parties. Are you really a writer? Because it’s taught in school how an article should be like, plus you have to make sure how facts can be determined from “opinions” so if this is just an opinion based article, well many did not appreciate you sharing it. My puerto rican guy has been the sweetest, treated me like a princess, very responsible and knows his priorities, plus he’s fckn good and awesome when it comes to love making. So if you have other datas, or proofs to show how these “men” in puerto rico are, then make sure not to stereotype. Kcan

    I’m surprised as a man, let alone a Puerto rican man, that a company would allow a writer to express such personal anger towards a single group. Call it what you will, Satire or comedy it is highly offensive! What on earth would poses you to write such a racial, one sided, article based on the bad experience of one so called writer?
    If you are truly Puerto Rican you should be ashamed of yourself. As Puerto Ricans are American!! We have fought in every war since WWII. We are the only group within all latin countries that had and have “MEN” drafted/enlisted to fight in the Vietnam war directly from the island. My Grandfather, father, uncles, and brother have served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Airforce and as for me? A Puerto Rican- United States Marine! It’s sad that my family and many Puerto Rican patriots on the island and within the United States have fought for the freedom that allows you to speak so harshly of your own people.MANY Good PUERTO RICAN MEN DIED proudly serving the UNITED STATES of AMERICA FOR YOUR FREEDOM…and this is how you honor them? You used this forum to bad mouth your experience with a bad guy and instead of just saying I’m sorry, you called it a Satire. That’s no different than me shooting the enemy in the face and calling it a comedy routine. It’s Americans like you that hurt what America which includes the common wealth of Puerto Rico stand for.
    You have offended my flag (both of them), my faith and my family, all of which say pray for you and hope in another life I get to defend my country against a comedian/satirist – Respete los Boriqua!
