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.
I’ve been here 5 years and I’m still floored at some of the women in my gym!
On the street, I am usually attracted to women who look as if they are on their way to an office job.
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.
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.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.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.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.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.
