After living in South America for over a year, here is my take on being a gringita and the rules of dating in South America. It is a common topic in conversation here and some women have become so accustomed to it, that they accept it as normal.
I have dated a few men who were machisimo and if I had not recognized the signs in the beginning it could have ended very badly.
What are the signs?

Obsessively calling, texting, FB messaging. Exhibiting stalker behaviors like showing up at your house without your approval or spreading nasty rumors when you decide that you need some space.
Another big sign is when you have heard through the grapevine that they have been machisimo with other partners as well.
This rule is not just exclusive for men; women can become very jealous and overbearing as well. Look for the red flags in the beginning to avoid disaster in the end.
Be Patient So you have found yourself a wholesome, good-looking, sweet South American man. Instead I took a long sip of too-sweet Pisco and lemonade and leant back against the cold kitchen counter-top. He appeared not to notice the jagged edges of my smile as I nodded and thanked him for telling me. I topped up my drink, and followed. The jokes about bricheros had started way back in my Spanish classes, sitting about in the patio laughing and warning the new students about charming Peruvian men and women sweeping them off their feet while emptying their wallets.
In a more serious moment my teacher had described the procession of female students that had fallen head over heels, passing through her classroom detailing passionate love affairs in halting Spanish, only to be left bereft when the local heartbreaker tired of them and moved on to the next gringa.

Yet, at least at the beginning, a small part of me that wondered. And even when I was sure, when the trusting side of me won, I felt just as sure I knew what people were thinking.
Brichero and gringa, hand in hand in the Plaza de Armas, her smiling from ear to ear, blissfully adrift in Latino love, him cheerfully enjoying the small luxuries of a life paid for in crisp dollars.

Mosques Without a doubt, one of the major disappointments of travelling in Morocco if you are not Muslim is not being allowed into its mosques. This rule applies equally to the numerous whitewashed koubbas — the tombs of marabouts, or local saints usually domed: It is a good idea, too, to avoid walking through graveyards, as these also are regarded as sacred places.
Women in Morocco There is no doubt that, for women especially, travelling in Morocco is a very different experience from travelling in a Western country. One of the reasons for this is that the separate roles of the sexes are much more defined than they are in the West, and sexual mores much stricter.

Most Moroccan men still expect to marry a virgin, and most women would never smoke a cigarette or drink in a bar, the general presumption being that only prostitutes do such things. Even in traditional Moroccan societies, mountain Berber women, who do most of the hard work, play a much more open role in society, and rarely use a veil. Sexual harassment Different women seem to have vastly different experiences of sexual harassment in Morocco.
Some travellers find it persistent and bothersome, while others have little or no trouble with it at all. Many women compare Morocco favourably with Spain and other parts of southern Europe, but there is no doubt that, in general, harassment of tourists here is more persistent than it is in northern Europe or the English-speaking world. Harassment will usually consist of men trying to chat you up or even asking directly for sex, and it can be constant and sometimes intimidating.
