I've found approaching and engaging Colombian girls to be much less daunting than in, for example, my home country of the UK.
Depending on how you make your move you will very occasionally get the cold shoulder, but more often than not the girl will be happy to talk to you even if she’s not interested in anything more than friendship or a quick chat.
The tremendous wealth which was generated from the trafficking of drugs created a culture of elaborate spending.
Pablo Escobar famously imported elephants and other exotic animals to his Hacienda Napoles resort.
That said, a female Colombian friend once remarked that she had felt oddly unattractive while living in the USA.
She would walk past numerous construction sites and be met with nothing but a disinterested silence, something that would be unimaginable in Colombia.
One thing to be wary of is that many Colombian girls will also be happy to give you their phone number even if they are not in the least bit interested in seeing you again.
Whereas European girls would tend to invent an imaginary boyfriend to deter your advances, Colombian girls are much more likely to give you her number and then either dodge your calls, make excuses for not going out with you, or worse still, accept a date and then stand you up.
If the girl does agree to meet you there make sure you’re on time.
While it’s often acceptable for the girl to arrive 20 minutes late, if you leave her waiting just five minutes there could be trouble.
Having lived in Colombia now for well over a decade I have a fair amount of experience dating Colombian women. The following is my impression of Colombian girls that I have formed over many years of living here from numerous dates and also a couple of serious relationships. It is difficult to generalise when it comes to describing Colombian girls physically since Colombia is such a racially diverse country.
In the coastal regions, for example, the majority of the people are of black descent, whereas in the area around Medellin and the coffee region the population is much whiter.
If you hear either “Es que esta lloviendo / esta hacienda mucho frio” (“The thing is it’s raining / it’s very cold”) or “Es que tengo mucha pereza” (roughly translated as “I can’t really be bothered”) then alarm bells should start ringing!
