I’m a 44-year old divorced male. I’ve always been acutely attracted to Hispanic women. Recently, I’ve tossed around the idea of joining a dating site that seems interesting to me. The site is MexicanCupid.com. I’ve read good things about the site, but I am still hesitant to join. Basically, I don’t want to waste money on a membership if I can’t communicate with the women on the site. Just over a year ago I joined an Asian dating site and found steady communication difficult even though the site offered a supplemental translation service. I’d really like to give MexicanCupid a shot. After all, I figure if I meet someone and we have chemistry, it is easier to fly and meet in person when the country is right next door. No oceans to cross and all.
One thing that we discovered when our team checked out MexicanCupid was that a high percentage of the female members of the site were functional, if not fluent, in English. The main reason for this is that the majority of female members on this site come from middle and upper-middle class backgrounds. Many have college degrees or work for international companies. English is part of their professional day-to-day lives. That means that with a large number of these women you do not need to worry about communication.
We also found that even those who were not fluent in speaking English still had sufficient proficiency in English to engage in understandable text-based communication. You may have to tolerate a few typos and grammatical flaws, but let’s be honest, even native English speakers have those issues.
As you alluded to when referring to the translation services offered by other overseas dating sites, MexicanCupid also offers a similar service. It is automated, so the results are not the best. It will only translate written communication held on their platform. It reminded us of Google Translate from a few years ago. It may not be exact, but it is enough to establish the context of a conversation.
Also, don’t underestimate your ability to pick up a little of the Spanish language. You’d be surprised at how much you probably already understand. Good luck to you on MexicanCupid.
