Tips for dating a Latino Guy?

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?

Updates:
Thanks for everyone's tips. My date went well, but Mya did forget to mention that he doesn't know much English (im kinda mad about that)so it was ALL about the body language! His name was Alex and he was very sweet, he wouldn't let me pay for anything. And during the whole movie he had his arm around me and won't NOT let go, I'm surprised of how affectionate he was. I would like to go out with him but its hard to get over that he knows little English and I don't know much Spainish. :(

  • 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.

  • told you :) we are touchy people :) also, I may be exception to the rule, most of us won't talk a lot, so we have learn to not be uncomfortable with little words or silence, a smile usually says more, but also told you, we like to get in touch with the culture of those who we meet, again, do not be surprise if he tries to learn about yours, or even he start using some of your expressions, even if he did not catch a lot he may be looking up in the dictionary for some of the expressions he haeard most of you, and he will be SO touched if you lear a word or two, and if you know where he is from to get a little about his culture, BTW, Spanish is also my language, as you can see my English is not great either, but if I can be helpful to you by all means reach up and I will try to teach you some useful things, and again if you know his origin tell me, I may know it too and can tell you one or two things about it, you will get more than enough for a good chat

  • Best way to impress a Latino. Be less than 6'0, know how to dance and know how to use your lady features (be deadly from head to toe). Most Latino men are family oriented, they like their women to be the neck of the family, He might be the head lol ,but if the neck turns one way the head follows.

    So Cat Walk your way into his heart.

    Women often forget that "a woman who can walk decently is a woman who can kill men by breaking their necks".

  • There is no discernable difference unless he just got off the boat.

  • You're over thinking it. Just relax, this guy probably isn't any different than others.

    If you really want to know more, then OK, I'm Latino. We're very family oriented, and there's a lot of shorties amongst us so it's no problem at all haha. Maybe you could ask him to say some stuff in Spanish, that sounds like fun.

    But the guy is under 18 I assume? No need to freak out especially then, just have a good time!

  • Pretty sure Latino guys are no different than any other guy out there... and how are we supposed to know if he likes/dislikes black girls?

    Why not just be yourself instead of worrying about all these pointless things? Just be confident and happy and since he's shy, you need to come up with a list of backup conversation starters in case that awkward silence starts kicking in.

  • I'm sure he likes black girls or he wouldn't have agreed to the date.you know he's Latino so he must know you're black

    He probably won't have a problem with you being short, most Latino guys aren't that tall so he'll probably like it

    Well just be smiley and friendly.if he's shy, the extra kindness will help bring him out of his shell.don't be nervous, he is probably nervous too.have a good time
