I have lived my entire life, barring the past 5 years of course, in Southern California.
At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
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.
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.
Here in Medellin, you do NOT need to play that game.
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.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.It is not about being petulant or rude, it’s about being confident (comfortable in your own skin.) I meet women in Medellin by just living my life.
Every day I see gorgeous women walking up and down the street.So I do not have that instant “gringo effect” on them.
