Hispanic dating traditions

Thanks to texting and social media, teens today have many more ways to reach out to a crush than in the analog days of using the family telephone and passing notes in the hallways.But according to a recent Pew Research Center report, some romantic traditions remain the same.

S.-born adults had a non-Latino spouse while just 15% of married immigrant Latinos did.

Similarly, second-generation adults with Hispanic ancestry (the U. S.-born grandparents, or even more distant relatives), just half of U. adults with Hispanic ancestry say they are Hispanic.

S.-born children of at least one immigrant parent) have nearly as high a Hispanic self-identification rate (92%), according to Pew Research Center estimates. Among adults who say they have Hispanic ancestors (a parent, grandparent, great grandparent or earlier ancestor) but do not self-identify as Hispanic, the vast majority – 81% – say they have never thought of themselves as Hispanic, according to a Pew Research Center survey of the group.

Post-breakup, girls are more likely to erase their ex from their social media lives.

Some 44% of teen girls with dating experience have blocked or unfriended an ex on social media, compared with 31% of boys.
