These Mexican Nicknames Are Probably the Reason Why We’re So Emotionally Unstable

Mexican nicknames are a trip. They’re basically an adjective that you end up getting stuck with for the rest of your life. And because they’re said with cariño, no offense is supposed to be taken – at least that’s what were told. Some of them can be downright mean though, especially when it comes to nicknames inspired by your appearance.

Blond or light-skinned? You qualify as a güera (even if it is with the help of hair dye).

No guy wants to be called “shorty” unless they’re tall, I guess.

“Viejo”

“Beba”
