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.

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.

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

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.

And they all know stories of guys who chose the wrong girl. You are in love and people in love tend to act a little bit illogical.

You might buy a house for her and because you can’t own it, she kicks you out after a month. I don't care about being politically correct, so caveat emptor.

It’s easy to believe that you are a godlike creature when every second girl you see smiles at you.

Even if you didn’t get any attention from women back home, you will get attention in Asia, especially if you are a young white man. You want to be with her, but your ego tells you that you can have so many other girls.

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.

Medellin women are beautiful, and word is spreading pretty much around the world. I have been dating Colombian women for over 6 years now.
