Imagine, our hands are on each other’s bodies before even knowing each other’s names.

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.

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.

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.

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

Over the past 5 years I’ve dated many Colombian women and I frequently update this post.

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.
