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.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.Generally, these women will be dressed and fashionable.I can tell they are going to work because normally they will have a badge around their neck or pinned to their shirt or pants.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.I’ve been here 5 years and I’m still floored at some of the women in my gym!
For an emasculated man from the United States, this is a nightmare.
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.
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.
