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.NOTE: I wrote this post about my experience dating women in Medellin back in April of 2013.

For an emasculated man from the United States this is a nightmare.

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.

It is not usual for women in Medellin to go out by themselves just to let loose.

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.

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.Medellin nightclubs are for dancing, so it’s very easy to go up to a woman in a noisy disco, put out your hand, gesture for her to take it, and start dancing.I do this often, and many times I will dance one or two songs without even saying a word.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! This is a big plus for me here because I’m naturally outgoing and funny, so I can really be myself when speaking Spanish.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.At first glance Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
