At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
So I do not have that instant “gringo effect” on them.
Medellin women are beautiful, and word is spreading pretty much around the world. I have been dating Colombian women for over 6 years now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
