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.So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.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.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.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.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.
On the street, I am usually attracted to women who look as if they are on their way to an office job.Generally, these women will be dressed and fashionable.I can tell they are going to work because normally they will have a badge around their neck or pinned to their shirt or pants.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.More often than not I’m not even interested in talking to the girl; I just want to dance and have fun. Amazingly, when I do that, women are more attracted than when I start talking to them while dancing.
