I speak Spanish fluently; therefore, I can’t play the “…no jaaabl0 Españoler mucho bueno. I’m naturally outgoing and funny, so I can really be myself when speaking Spanish.
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.
So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.
Actually, I got more instant attention in Southern California; the “Latino effect.” The only thing that makes me stand out to women here is my height, thank God for that one tall great uncle! Regarldess, I look on the bright side and see this as an advantage.
Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before.
Hot Medellin girls are not the sole reason for this rise in tourism to “The City of Eternal Spring”, but it is definitely up there.
It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner.
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.
This has proven to be essential for me when picking up women in Medellin. Socially, women are a little different than the southern California women I was used to picking up.Seeing beautiful women here is so common that Colombian men don’t even turn to look, it’s ridiculous.I’ve been here 5 years and I’m still floored at some of the women in my gym!Furthermore, I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism in Colombia and I know that there are many strip clubs and brothels in Medellin; however, strippers and prostitutes are not the types of girls that I date, nor is it something I would like to promote, therefore, I will not be referring to that in this post. My situation is a little different than most foreigners here in Colombia.I am actually Colombian, my family is Colombian, and more importantly (aside from my height, 6’2″) I look Colombian.
Many guys who come to Colombia cannot pick up girls in their own native language let alone in Spanish and some even have the audacity to say that the women here are just “gold diggers” or “too difficult” and that is not accurate at all.
