To give credit where credit is due, I first have to say that Buenos Aires is a city that well deserves its name. There is something in the air there.
It feels good there, slightly breezy with a nice chill vibe. Buenos Aires has some significant drawbacks for the single dude traveler.
First of all, Buenos Aires is not a great value for the single dude wallet. As a result, things in Buenos Aires cost much more than they should. Getting around anywhere in a cab will be at least ten bucks. The food is overpriced and universally bland. And every menu in every restaurant is pretty much the same, with three pages of unseasoned steaks, bland over cheesed pizzas and salads that "Buenos aires babes" like packing material.
The only way I could eat there was to bring my own hot sauce with me to the restaurants. For such a major city, BA has a shockingly bad food scene.
This alone is a dealbreaker for me. If you walk down the main pedestrian drag downtown, Avenida Florida, you will see Buenos aires babes of decent looking girls, but hardly ever will you see one that just knocks your socks off.
Compare this to Bulgariawhere while having coffee on Vitoshka Street any random afternoon of the week you will see an outrageously hots chick every couple of minutes guaranteed. I think I saw fewer than 5 of those girls in a week in Buenos Aires.
This is not Central America or Mexico where people are heavily exposed to American culture and are obliged to learn English if they are well educated.
In Argentina the level of English is surprisingly low. University students or graduates may have taken English in school but they must not have paid much attention because many seem to have extremely low level English.
You must speak Spanish there. And the Argentinian girls love to talk. If you want to make it work with an Argentinian girl be prepared to have long conversations about important topics in Spanish before anything happens. The Buenos aires babes also have very limited experience with non-Spanish speakers other than Brazilians so they have no ability to remember to slow down when they talk.
This communication issue significantly raises the
Buenos aires babes of difficulty of Buenos Aires. You know how some women just have that vibe that draws you and other guys to them? Compare them in this way to their next door neighbors in Brazil and the difference is night and day.
Ask the guys selling trinkets at the corner of Avenida de Mayo and Florida discretely and they will hook you up. Smoking is OK in semi-public, and all my Argentinian girlfriends were hippieish and would usually join me for a puff. For one admission price, you can take several different dance classes, learn the basic steps and dance all night. In Eastern Europethings start late also, like 12 or 1, but they party once they go out.
Like those prospects, boys? Good luck finding that situation in Buenos Aires. You would have some melancholy in "Buenos aires babes" national spirit too if your currency collapsed as often as theirs does! They are so serious about it that there is no fun involved. This is the Argentine seriousness that makes them seem standoffish.
So, Buenos Aires, while a nice town with some soul, is not Single Dude recommended. It might be a nice place to take a chick on vacation if you have some extra cash to blow. If you find yourself there on business I have a couple recommendations:. San Telmo is a cool funky neighborhood just south of the main tourist area, and my favorite part of Buenos Aires. It reminds me of San Francisco a bit, with little funky shops and bars and a super lively Sunday afternoon when they close down the main drag and have big craft street fair.
Puerta Madero is the place to go cougaringwhich is just east of San Telmo and the place where the rich dudes can be seen with their trophy wives as well. Palermo is the regular upper class neighborhood where the best bars and clubs are to be found. The most go-to place especially on off nights is Plaza Serrano, where there will be always be at least a little bit going on, and Buenos aires babes pretty much your only choice on off nights. Anyways guys, sorry for the disappointing news.
I actually had a pretty good but it was because I lucked into an unusual situation which I am sure did not reflect the norm there.
Simply speaking, you need to be too good and spend more money than is necessary to make it happen in Buenos Aires than many, many other cooler locations. Buenos Aires is now considerably cheaper than at the time of writing.
I decided to join with others to write this blog because I feel that I have learned a lot about how to succeed in life in general. It took a lot of trial and error and I've developed a wealth of philosophies, skills, and tricks of the trade that would be very useful Buenos aires babes like minded guys out there.
There's no need to repeat Buenos aires babes mistakes, of which I have made many, instead I urge you to read this blog, absorb and practice its lessons, and then go out and have the most awesome life, on your own terms. To me that means good health, success in your career, the number and type of relationships
Buenos aires babes want, and general satisfaction that you're not wasting your life spinning your wheels, but going forward always towards your goals.
