I'm going on a double date with my friend Mya,(were going to the movies) and she is setting me up with this guy. He's extremely handsome and she said he's very quite. I've never really dated or went on a date with a Latino guy and I'm so nervous! I don't know what I should wear, if theirs something I should know not to do, does he like black girls, or if he thinks I'm too short(i'm 5'1). Does any one have any end put on what I should do, how I should prepare or just tips?

I am Latino, I would bet we are easier to date then, say, Europeans, you say he is quite, perhaps shy? but even if he is shy we are not really prudes, nor males nor girls, so you can play it sexier than you normally would if you want too, but it does not mean you absolutely have to do it, I think your attitude is more important, we like bluntness, not crude, your straightforward, speak your mind, most girls here do it, even if they go a little too far :P a lot of girls I know are tomboy-ish so I would dare say that even though we like girlie girls in fact there is not much you have to refrain yourself from doing/saying, actually, I bet if he is shy he would inmediately warm up if you left the "polite" stage of the date behind soon, most Latinos would, when at home, ignore polite chat/behavior, like you get on a taxi, you can joke with the driver, even dirty jokes, call him brother, we are also no very polite even to our bosses or elderly, we keep it friendly, only when someone is polite we get into polite-mode, I know I shy up when in polite mode, ohhh and also, by keeping it friendly is easier for building up attraction, we are touchy people, you can slap his shoulder playfully after a joke, or if he says something nice about you you can hugh him in return, you see how good male friends treat each other, like pushing each other, or things like that, you can do it with him, and you'll see him more relaxed.
in my country there are almost no black girls, perhaps is the uniqueness but we REALLY like them, I only know like 7 black girls, and once tried dating one, it did not work :P a lot of girls felt weird with Latino guys because it would be (again since you are unsual to us) a little like we can not get over the differences, we are not racist people, but they may not be able to stop "worrying" about for example, not saying anything that may sounds racist, or doing comment about your collor, to the point that it would feel unnatural, when asked a girl would say "he is a nice boy, but is like he can not get over my color" in my case it was the oposite, I grew up loving hiphop culture, and this girl could not brush off the feeling that I was trying too hard to behave like a black guy, it was not really what I was doing, but I understand how would it feel like that, in short, he would likely be trying to "put himself in your shoes", but is not a color thing, we, for example, if someone comes from our same country and is our same color but from another state we would be like trying to get a feel of their accent, try to come up with facts we know about their culture, we do it to try to bond, not out of racism, so be easy on him if he is a little awkward about race.
ohhh and about your height, most Latinos are shorter than black guys, most girls I know are your height or shorter, nothing to worry about.0
