So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.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 have found that Medellin women, as in most parts of the world, love compliments and like it when a guy can make them laugh.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.Finding out if you’re compatible with a Colombian woman can be a complicated endeavor, just like anywhere.There is no one way to woo them because of individual personalities and all the variables you encounter.It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner.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.
I had to learn everything from experience, and it’s been a blast.Here’s a good one, courtesy of my friend Jessie, a Miami native born to Ecuadorian parents who now has a paisa girlfriend: “If you want to meet up at 7 p.m., set the date for .If she tells you she’s on the way, that means she’s about to take a shower.”You can usually tell when a woman is interested, either by the way they flirt with you or stare at you, or, in some cases, when they make the first move by telling you directly that they like you, sometimes with a kiss. Maybe a jealous boyfriend won’t kill you, but acid attacks are on the rise here and that would be an unpleasant fate for trying to win the affections of someone in a relationship. Take her to something low-key with a very social vibe.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.
