-Start a convesation with a Hispanic stranger?

Speaking generally, Spanish people is very open-minded and they will be glad to have a conversation even with strange people. 

-Make eye-contact with Hispanic strangers/friends?

Be aware of making eye-contact with the boyfriend (girlfriend) of a woman (man)  if she (he) is next to him (her) . There's nothing to be worried about in other cases ;-)
-Invite an Hispanic person out somerwhere when you first meet?

Slow down! Try to chat a little before :-) . After the person trust you it would be ok.
-etc/ What else would be rude?

On the whole, politeness is always heplfull so, at first, try to be kind to the person you're getting to know.

Hope it helps

@ Lici / @ Jason --Thank-you both. The eye-contact concept that Hispanics have is new to not just me but most Americans :) Uh-oh
