It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner.
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 have lived my entire life, barring the past 5 years of course, in Southern California.
Here in Medellin, you do NOT need to play that game.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.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.So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.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.
