So, hot men exist in Norway, as Annje has pointed out. In Santiago, Chile, on the other hand…
Well, first a disclaimer. I’ve been thinking about writing this post for awhile now, but I was worried about hurting people’s feelings. I know, I know, I’m such a pansy and should just be more cutthroat, but I’m just one of those people who doesn’t like others to feel bad.
But here it goes anyway. I hope I don’t offend anyone too much.
So men in Chile are not that attractive. Now, let me clarify that statement. There are many attractive men in Chile, and I personally know many. But I insist that if you take the male population as a whole and analyze it, the results are not so good. It might have something to do with the fact that many chilenos think that mullets are an appropriate hairstyle choice. Perhaps if we did a little scissor surgery the situation would slightly improve.
That’s why seeing an attractive member of the male species out on the street is kind of exciting. And now, I know where most of them work. Friday I was walking down Providencia and coming right at me was a herd of fairly attractive men, all wearing gray polos with “LG” embroidered on the pocket.
Friday was a good day with regards to hot men, because as two friends and I were dining on tapas and wine, we spotted perhaps THE MOST attractive Chilean man ever. He was downright gorgeous. At first he was sitting by himself, then we were all disappointed to see his girlfriend arrive. Bummer.
Which brings me to another point. When I see couples around, usually one is more attractive than the other. Sometimes it’s the guy, other times it’s the girl. More often than not, I see mismatched couples. Hottie’s girlfriend was not as hot as he was, although she was cute.
Remember, folks, that looks aren’t everything. Not by a long shot. From the quantity of gringas here in Chile that are dating/engaged/married to Chilean men, they must make good partners. And, duh, I’ve had my own share of good experiences with Chilean men too. In fact, the majority of men I’ve dated in my life have been Chilean.
So anyway, I’m not really sure where I’m going with this post, but to finish, I’ll leave you with a picture of the cutest Chilean guy around.
