How many times have you traveled to a different country? Have you experienced anything more than just sightseeing? Did you go out and mingle with the locals?
If you are new here, make sure to check out all the men’s country guides to see how Chilean men compare in all categories.
That’s what I do. I travel and mingle, get to know people, and experience their culture first hand, and yes, I am into international dating; some even call me an international dating expert.
One of the countries I have found most attractive and welcoming is Chile and Dating Chilean men is an experience I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world.
So, I decided to share my knowledge of what are Chilean men like in relationships, how to meet Chilean men, and what are Chilean guys like generally.
If you are interested, and I am certain you are, let’s start and meet Chilean guys first in word and later, hopefully, in real life.
What are Chilean Men Like
To start telling you about what are some Chilean men stereotypes, and what are Chilean guys like in relationships, there are some typical Chilean men characteristics that I need to describe. And what better way to start than with describing their physical appearance that is the first thing that will draw you to them.
Ethnically speaking, Chileans are half Europeans and half Native Americans so they have the traits of both. They are much taller than Mexicans for example. They usually also have light skin. They are proud owners of luscious hair (yes, even the guys) that will put you to shame unless you have a mane to strut around.
Their hair is dark brown and they have deep brown eyes as well. There are very few people with light hair and eyes (which they find very appealing). All in all, they are very pleasant to look at, and the men are especially charming.
As I sojourned South America, I found out that men from Chile are truly exceptional. These dudes are as stylish as style comes. From the way they dress, walk, and even speak their romantic version of the Spanish language, you cannot but stare and get swept off your feet.
Being a rich country, I am not surprised that the guys here are so classy and are known to give ladies quite a treat.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the important physical trait ratings for Chilean men, we have also created our own additional rating from the Chilean men we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single men and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Chile and took note of how many handsome men there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Chilean men. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
Character Traits of Chilean Men
Now that you know the way Chilean men look like, you should get familiar with the way typical Chilean guys think, their attitudes towards life, love, and relationships.
1. Gentleman Rating
Not as suave as French guys, Chileans will not slightly bow to greet you, however, they will hold the door for you and treat you with the same courtesies that a gentleman should have. The only problem is they do not mind to let you wait for them, it’s just the way they are, and being late is not an issue there.
The extrovert Chileans have no need or desire to tell you one thing and do the other. They keep their integrity at all times. It seems like they do not pay attention to it, it just comes naturally to them.
The same as with integrity, the Chileans do not bother to tell lies. Their life is simple and they do not like to complicate it by telling lies and keeping track of what they said to whom. They also do not being lied to, so be honest all the time.
In international dating one of the Chilean guy stereotypes is that they are players. To an unaccustomed eye, it may certainly seem so, but they are anything but. They are open and friendly so you may think they are constantly flirting with you, however, they are not. When they flirt they go over the top and you know that you are being flirted with.
They are also very loyal to their friends and families.
5. How protective are they?
Some would say overprotective. They try very hard to keep you happy and satisfied that they sometimes start doing things instead of you. And as it seems nice, it becomes too tiresome to bear. Talk to him and explain that he doesn’t need to take care of every single thing that happy.
6. How resourceful are they?
When it comes to their country, they know everything there is to know, so ask them, they will gladly explain it. They also hold a lot of general information in their heads so you will not have boring conversations.
They are also very helpful around the house and when you need someone to carry your bags from the supermarket.
Besides the fact that they live with their parents until they get married, they are very mature. They take their love life and families seriously, as well as their jobs. The stereotype of being immature comes from the fact that they like to party a lot, which they do, but it is an outlet for all that seriousness.
The Chilean guys appear very self-confident because they are friendly and open. However, when it comes to courting girls, they have their own insecurities and are not very proactive. To overcome that blockage, they truly like it when the girl gives them a sign that she is interested or even makes the first step towards a romance.
9. Friendliness vs. Reserve
Like all other Latinos, Chileans are very friendly. They like to approach foreigners and start talking about your respective countries and cultures. They will welcome you in their circle of friends. The only thing they are reserved about is their families, to meet the family you really have to be special in their lives.
Chilean men keep ticking the excellence box in so many personality categories and I know that it is looking promising so far. I must say these men are excellent.
It cannot all be rosy and nice all through, read more to find out their flaws and how much you can take from these nice men with beautiful Spanish culture.
Pros and Cons of Dating a Chilean Man:
Here are some pros and cons of dating a Chilean guy.
1. They will spoil you
Seriously, the number of cuddles, sweet words and touching, random gifts (flower from the street, or chocolate) that show you he has been thinking of you all day will become your everyday. They do not shy away from expressing their feelings. So you will be spoiled, and no other guy from any other nation will amount to your cuddling expectations ever again.
2. Never a dull moment
Chileans are happy-go-lucky people, so every day he will think of something fun for you to do. Party all night? Check! Drinking? Check! Dancing? Check! Fun outdoor activities? Check! You will have to learn to keep up very quickly. And, trust me, it is not that hard to get used to that!
3. They are industrious
Remember your American boyfriend whose mother made his bed for him? Yeah, that does not happen in Chile. From a very early age, they are taught to take care of themselves and their environments, and they are also very hardworking. So if you are looking for a guy who will be able to take care of you and even maybe have children with him, you are in the right hands. The amount of hard work he puts in everything he does is admirable.
1. The “Chilean Time”
So, the Americans are generally punctual people, so when we agree on meeting at, say, 7 we will probably be there around or even a few minutes before the sad time. What frustrated me the most was the fact that Chileans do not respect time at all, it passes them by unnoticed. So when I got back from work and hurried to get myself all dolled-up for him and he was without exception late at least a half an hour I was furious
Later, I resorted to telling him that I want to meet at seven when I actually wanted to meet at 8. In that case, he will usually appear on ‘my’ time.
2. The motels
There comes an age in every person’s life when sneaking around so your parents do not catch you kissing your boyfriend becomes lame and immature. In Chile, however, you will either have to leave his room through the window or go to cheap motels to enjoy some alone time. This is because sexy Chilean guys live with their parents usually until they are married, and bringing a girl home to his Catholic parents for a sleepover will not do. So if you want to see what are Chilean men in bed like, you will have to visit crowded cheap motels.
How to meet a Chilean Man
Now that I have told you about my first-hand experiences in dating Chilean guys and you have most certainly become one of the American women looking for Chilean men either to date or for general merriment, the time has come for me to tell you where to meet Chilean guys and share some knowledge on how to meet a Chilean guy who will fit your needs and give you the best possible international dating experience.
Of course, my advice on where to meet Chilean men would be to go to Chile and meet them in their environment, this is where they are most comfortable and relaxed. However, if you need to experience Chilean dating culture online before you dare do it in real life, there are several options for you to choose from.
My top pick for an online dating website is LatinAmericanCupid for many reasons. Let us see what they are.
As the name suggests, this dating website is not targeted only at single Chilean men, but at hot Brazilian guys, Mexican men, Argentinean guys and so on. Its aim is to connect Hispanic people with people from different countries who appreciate the Latin culture and shape and form of Latinos.
There is a large number of Chilean males just waiting to be noticed by you. The member database is filled with sexy Chilean men.
Now, the website is very easy to register on, it is a two-step process and will take you no more than five minutes to go through it. There is no verification process but you are asked to provide a photo, which is optional (the photos need to be approved), but I highly recommend it as it will raise your chances at meeting someone quicker.
Connecting with other members, and in this case, single Chilean guys is a bit tricky if you are a standard member – you can only send messages to premium members, but you can show interest, add to favorites and filter messages from unwanted guys.
Look for hot Chilean guys by using extensive search filters, but first of all location filter.
One of the reasons why I chose this website as my favorite is because the members are highly active. The other one is because the profiles are very detailed and informative. The sign-up process is quick and easy but you can go back and fill it in anytime, and I am glad that many of the handsome Chilean guys decided to do so because I could get a good idea of whether we could get along.
For all of you ladies on the go, there is an app that can be downloaded for free on Google Play Store that has all the same features as the full web version of the website.
The website is proud to state that there are many successful love stories that were started on the website, and, if that is not enough I can freely say that LatinaAmericanCupid offers the best service out there for international dating lovers.
And, as a personal testimony, I can say, that I have met my Chilean boyfriend right there on this website. Color me biased, but I love it!
How to Conquer a Chilean Man’s Heart
After I have potentially enticed you to try dating a Chilean guy, here are some tips for dating a Chilean man that I wish someone had said to me before I actually went there and started dating my Santiago in real life. Handsome Chilean men prove a real challenge as well as pleasure.
1. Be open
One of the most important of the Chilean men dating tips is to be open to suggestions. They like their women fun and chill, so if you are a party pooper you will not amaze him. Speak up if you are tired or do not feel well, but a simple ‘I don’t feel like going’ will not be well-accepted.
2. Be direct
Chilean guys do not mind if their girl takes the first step toward contact. They are natural-born hunters but are attracted to a huntress as well. So, next time you see a Chilean hottie, go for it!
Never shy away from PDA. They are big on PDA anytime and anywhere so if you bust his romantic mood by saying that it’s not appropriate you will be labeled cold and distant. So just enjoy; everybody there does it.
4. Don’t pressure him
Meeting the family is a huge step in your relationship. It means that he has some serious plans with you, but he has to come to that in his own time and his own pace. Pressuring him will only push him away from you.
5. Dye your hair blonde
Ok, I am not suggesting that you change your appearance to fit a certain standard, but it is commonly thought that Chilean guys are attracted to the fair-haired girls. Especially when it comes to international dating. For them, a blonde girl is exotic as there aren’t many (if any) blonde Chilean girls.
6. Learn to dance
If you have two left feet he will not reject you, but Chileans have great rhythm and loooove to dance. So if you have any talent at all, try to learn their dances, and also, do not reject a dance invitation. Just have fun, and do not be afraid of looking clumsy or stupid, he will do anything to cover that by being silly himself.
7. Language Barrier
When you meet Chilean men, what you want to do is chat them up, right? But can you, do they speak English?
Well, this depends largely on your dating pool. If you are looking to be dating a Chilean man who is in his 20’s or 30’s, the chances are that he will have some intermediate English language skills, meaning that you will be able to conduct simple, every-day conversations with him.
On the other hand, if you are interested in dating a bit older guys, you might have problems with communication.
Also, education plays a great role in how well Chileans speak English. In the last decade or so, there are many bilingual schools, and folks who graduate from them are better versed in English than those who do not. In addition, there is growing exposure to American culture via films and TV shows which allows them to get acquainted with English sentence formation and pronunciation.
What is most common with guys who speak English is something similar to Spanglish, so you would have to get used to the fact that every once in a while in an otherwise decent conversation in English, you will hear a Spanish word as if out of nowhere. So, unless you speak Spanish, you might have some difficulty understanding your Chilean boyfriend.
They will, however, try their hardest to get the meaning across as they are friendly and want to communicate. And the obvious plus with Latinos who speak English is that adorable accent, the sexy Rs and a bit harder vowels. And, coincidently, just because they simplify the vowel system it is surprisingly easy to understand them, they speak very neutral English.
If all else fails, resort to the body language, as it is universal and maybe even the most fun.
Top 3 Hottest Chilean men
For you to better understand what are Chilean men like physically, I have made a list of 3 hot Chilean men, who I think represent the hottest of them in real life. Living in Chile for a while, I have gotten acquainted with popular actors, musicians, and sportspeople and this is my top pick.
1. Pedro Pascal
Even if you are one of the few people who haven’t gotten into the hype of watching the most popular series of all time – The Game of Thrones, there is absolutely no chance that you haven’t seen photos of the actors who portrayed the characters. One of the minor but a very memorable character (for the ladies especially) of Oberyn Martell was portrayed by this Chilean hottie.
Pedro Pascal was born in 1975 in Santiago, Chile but moved first to Denmark and later to the USA early in his life. He studied acting at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
He appeared in many projects but The Game of Thrones was a breakthrough point in his career. After that, he acted in popular TV series Narcos and The Mandalorian.
Check out his work if you already haven’t. You will enjoy his charming smile and a hint of an accent, I am sure of that. His physical appearance is a great representative of how a hot Chilean guy.
2. Santiago Cabrera
Although technically born in Venezuela in 1978, Cabrera’s parents are Chilean, so he owes his good looks to his Chilean genetics. He grew up in London and studied acting with world-renowned teachers who taught the likes of Sir Sean Connery and Sir Antony Hopkins.
He is a stage, TV and movie actor, and his breakthrough role was in NBC’s series Heroes. Other noted roles are Lancelot in Marlin, Aramis in The Musketeers, Joseph Bachman in the hit series Big Little Lies, Santos in Transformers: The Last Night, and so on.
He won his fans’ hearts with a combination of hot Chilean blood and famous British moodiness and gloominess. Check out his work, you will have fun for days.
3. Tiago Correa
Born in 1981, in Santiago de Chile, Chile, Correa is one of the most popular Chilean film and telenovela actor.
He is most famous for the latter as the portrayed characters in Vivir con 10, Mala Conducta, Dueños del paraíso, and others.
His mother is Brazilian so he owes some of his sexiness to her ancestry as well, although he looks very Chilean. Mouth full of pearly white teeth, head full of gorgeous hair and a masculine vibe are what we get by just looking at him.
He is not very famous worldwide but if you live in Chile for even a while, you will start loving him and his work as much as Chilean girls do.
My dear ladies, everything that a girl wants is here in this guide.
Read it carefully and be sure that these tricks will get you a hot Chilean guy.
