I am actually Colombian, my family is Colombian, and more importantly (aside from my height, 6’2″) I look Colombian.
I have lived my entire life, barring the past 5 years of course, in Southern California.
Most of my close friends here in Medellin are foreigners and I have seen girls break their neck checking them out as we walk down the street.
Every day I see gorgeous women walking up and down the street.
I go to the supermarket and I see beautiful women, I go get my hair cut and there’s a breathtaking woman, I go eat lunch and I see an amazingly attractive woman.
Typically, very beautiful girls in Medellin will go to a bar or a nightclub in a group, and there will be guys in that group usually.
For an emasculated man from the United States, this is a nightmare.
The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin.
It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner.Do not even get me started on the gym, it is almost like a circus sideshow in there.Seeing beautiful women here is so common that Colombian men don’t even turn to look, it’s ridiculous.It is hard for one’s true personality to translate when speaking another language, but luckily I am a fluent Spanish speaker and have learned enough Paisa slang to be my witty self.I have found that Medellin women, as in most parts of the world, love compliments and like it when a guy can make them laugh.Penetrating that group of friends, playing “the game” in order to get to your “target girl” is hard work, and sometimes does not work if you don’t speak Spanish well enough for her to understand.
