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.
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.
For an emasculated man from the United States, this is a nightmare.
Imagine, our hands are on each other’s bodies before even knowing each other’s names.
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 do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.
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.
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.
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.
