Thanks

Catholic churches in Pilsen, Humbolt Park, the Little Village and Logan Square would likely be a gold mine for you.

Nowhere. There are no Latin-American women in Chicago.

Well, I can understand his frustration. Even though there are MANY Latin-American women in Chicago and the surrounding metropolitan area (especially Mexicans), it can be hard to meet them. Think for a second how segregated Chicago really is. In the Loop you mostly have harried business people going to and from work. And even in the hip neighborhoods directly to the north, it's going to be primarily White & some Asian/Indian/etc (probably a lot of yuppies, and some club kids that somehow end up there on the weekends). As far as the club scene goes, it seems that a lot of the Latin crowd gravitates to parties that are thrown by Latin promoters, and the crowd will be almost all Latino (venues such as Green Dolphin, Transit, etc.). And of course this will probably a younger crowd, and I'm not sure how old the OP is. I don't think the Latinos are as melded into the scene here like they are in Miami, for example, where it's probably almost impossible NOT to meet Latin-American women, lol.

That identifies about 5% of the city. So don't hang out in those neighborhoods if meeting Latina women is your aim. Try neighborhoods where they actually do hang out and live, often side-by-side with whites despite apparently everyone's insistence that Chicago is hypersegregated, such as Logan Square, Humboldt Park, Avondale, Irving Park, Cragin, Hermosa, Portage Park, Albany Park, East Side, Hegewisch, McKinley Park, Pilsen, Heart of Chicago, Archer Heights, West Elsdon, etc. etc. etc...

They're not merely "melded" into the scene in Miami, they are the scene in Miami; they form a huge majority there whereas whites are about 10% of the population. And while Chicago may not come close to Miami in percentages, there are nonetheless about one million Hispanics in this city. If the OP hasn't figured out where to find them by now, he either walks around wearing a blindfold or he has explored so little of this city that he can't have had a particularly meaningful existence here.

They're basically totally standard where I'm at. Kinda boggles the mind that you live in a city like Chicago and have a hard time finding/meeting them (which basically means you never leave the most hyper-sterilized areas of the north side). I'd suggest if you're going to look, look in areas where they live but that also has some sort of meaningful Caucasian presence. The ones that are raised in entirely Hispanic communities (or black/hispanic mixed communities) come from a very different cultural background than those who are raised in areas that still have a meaningful white population. Not to say that A always equals B or that B always equals C, but for the most part, you'll find that the ones who come from Hispanic/White mixed areas are very, very different than those who come from Black/Hispanic or "All Mexican" areas. One is profoundly less likely to have tattoos in Old English script anywhere on their body, commemorating a dead person.

I go shopping at Petes Market in East Side just to watch the scenery. Definitely think those women are hotter than hell- very friendly, fun loving albeit with a strong family-orientation. Definitely am a big, big fan of the Senoritas.

In your particular case, I'd suggest avoiding the South Side Latino community, lest you want to wind up as a charred corpse hanging upside-down from a rusty bridge over the Calumet River.
