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.Medellin women are beautiful, and word is spreading pretty much around the world. I have been dating Colombian women for over 6 years now.When I first arrived here, there wasn’t yet a complete guide to dating paisa women.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.The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin.
Seeing beautiful women here is so common that Colombian men don’t even turn to look, it’s ridiculous.
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.
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.
