Mexico is not worth the hassle

Submitted 2 years 9 months ago by AlexP.

Mexico is well-known for its obese population, which mirrors the pattern set by the United States, its role model. To compound matters, Mexico City residents are frequently shapeless, with a rectangular frame. Many Americans are obese but have a healthy body composition. On the other hand, Mexicans tend to gain weight around their midsections, giving them a potato shape. The majority of the city's more attractive residents live on the western outskirts, in neighborhoods such as interlomas

Around 80% of Mexicans, I'd estimate, are overweight or obese. They are considered obese if they are 20% or more overweight. It becomes even worse when you consider how BMI works. The BMI (body mass index), which is calculated using a person's height and weight, is an unreliable indicator of a healthy body composition and fat content because it ignores muscle mass, bone density, overall body composition, and ethnic and gender differences. Due to the fact that muscle is denser and heavier than fat, bodybuilders and other professional athletes such as football players are frequently classified as obese or overweight solely based on their BMI.

If you can find a girl who is just a little chubby and not a tyrant, you'll be in good shape in Mexico. Do not give up hope. Reduce your standards, pay, or travel to a less fat Central American country with less gringos. My friends admitted that they liked CDMX because it is bad for women, allowing them to concentrate on business. There are a lot of sweethearts, though.

You must be creative to find a niche that works for you. Spanish is extremely useful. Dressing stylishly, yet casually, is also essential. Use your skills to your advantage. Get rid of the time wasters right away and put them out of your sight. However, you must also focus on yourself in order to outperform the simp competition.

In Mexico, men take care of a girl IN HOPE that he will get a chance to score with her. And because girls have many orbiters, all of their needs are met. Mexican men would also take care of the girl's mother or sisters in order to please the family later on. I've seen it with dudes and their social groups, where dudes joke about paying her groceries, phone, or whatever bill in an effort to get her to act in his favor. When a girl posts to IG "Uhh, I am bored I want tacos" the thirstiest orbiter will get and deliver those to his queen. Some even buy furniture and put down-payments for cars they'll end up paying 3 times for their girl's mother's and stuff.

The main reason Mexican middle-class "godinez" girls like gringos isn't the exotic factor; it's also not the money, as many have pointed out here, there are plenty of rich dudes in Mexico. It all comes down to the fact that gringos are much less clingy than Mexican men, rich or poor.

Here's a brief rundown of Mexico City


The city is gigantic, but here are 4.

- Condesa: bougie, trendy, good nightlife, more green
- Roma: bohemain bougie, trendy, foreigner heavy, good nightlife- Polanco: posh, high English levels
- Escandon: more authentic and representative of city, good budget option but no nightlife, next to condesa
- Coyoacan: beautiful, colonial style and more relaxed. a little out of the way and very little nightlife but plenty of restaurants and cafes.

Cost of Living

It's easy to live a bohemian life in Mexico City, with endless museums, the cinema, preparing your own meals, dining at fondas, long walks around the neighborhood, and cheap nights out in the Centro..

If you go out 1-2 times a week, cook a lot of meals at home, manage your uber expenses, and live in a middle-class neighborhood (Narvarte, Escandon, Centro), you should be able to make in on at least $1,700 a month. You can actually survive on that in the better neighborhoods (Roma, Condesa) if you're able to do roommates.

To live comfortably, I'd say $2,500 is a good starting point for eating out frequently, socializing frequently, retaining lovers, and living in better neighborhoods (Roma, Condesa). With $3,000 in your pocket, you're going to have a good time.

If you intend to stay for an extended period, you can find an apartment via

I lived in Roma for about a year and spent about $1,700 per month, but I speak Spanish, got a good deal on my apartment because la seora prefers foreigners, and rarely go to clubs. To be honest, I could probably reduce that to $1,400 and be perfectly content.


Not an issue in neighborhoods you'd want to stay in, but you can find trouble if that's what you want. What you should be wary of are high-value girls who are well-known in their social circles or neighborhood. Mexican men can be ruthless, and if they see a foreigner getting serious with a girl they used to date, they can become jealous and pursue you. Foreigners are normally unaffected by such issues. However, it's important to know that Mexico can be a wild place behind the scenes; most gringos can't imagine what goes on behind the scenes, so it's certainly worth sharing.

Quality and Looks of Women

In general, the quality varies from mediocre to abhorrent. Obesity is rampant in Mexico because the food is too easy to gorge on, and it is also affected by the biome they inherited. There are a lot of mediocre looking women, and it gets a lot worse as you leave the city's affluent areas. The only decent place for ladies is Playa del Carmen and perhaps Guadalajara and Guanajuato. Stay away from DF, Puebla, Chiapas and rest of Yucatan. From my experience in Mexico you will rarely see many stunners walking around the streets, if you go to some good clubs or fancy restaurants you will find them but that will be true in pretty much every country.

The hot girls are wealthy, and the majority of them seem to have wealthy girl attitudes. If you want model types and up, you will most likely need a social circle and will need to spend money hanging out in Polanco and at bottle service establishments such as Don Quintin. Don't bother asking me because I'm not an expert here.

If you've been to Colombia, you'll be disappointed, but the city itself is better and grander than any other in Latin America.


Uber is very cheap and often the best option. Metrobus and underground metro give so-so coverage of city but I still use often. Avoid during peak rush hour!


Mexico is as blah as it gets. The weather in the interior is pleasant, but the coast is oppressively hot and humid. That's not my cup of tea. The guys in Mexico are satisfied with a steady stream of zero quality ladies, punctuated by a super cutie every now and then. Despite their arguments to the contrary, this is entirely normal and even a kind of best case scenario for the overwhelming majority of guys. Mexico can be a goldmine for guys like that.

To get any consistency, you must either a) be a top 10-20% guy yourself (according to the local dating market standards) or b) put in the effort, learn the language, spend time on the ground (3 months+ at the very least), and so on. Relying solely on Tinder or online dating is the most certain way to limit yourself to a maximum of zero girls.

I can't wait for other opportunities. By the way, the number of visitors to Mexico at the moment is likely to be at an all-time high, as it is one of the few truly accessible countries. This makes competing with chads who are doing the same thing you are extremely difficult. The girls now have more options than they have ever had.

Bottom line - Top tier requires a top tier guy in terms of status (most importantly-requires work/long stays) and money perception, not necessarily looks per se, if one wants to get it for free, though, as previously stated, sugaring/sponsoring and an outright transaction will be required for short term stays. Looks help, but they aren't required for top-tier girls.
