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.
There are some general rules to which you should adhere to in order to increase your chances of making a good impression.
Colombia is still a very conservative country and many Colombian girls will expect you to collect them in your car or in a taxi on your way to a date (particularly the first few dates), and when going home.
When I first came to South America as a 24-year-old backpacker one of the things I relished most was the idea of dating Latin women.
In every South American country in which I travelled, from the tip of Patagonia to the northernmost reaches of the continent I met wonderful women.
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.
They were friendly, kind, sweet, generous, sincere and in many cases overwhelmingly beautiful. You can find pretty much any type of woman (and man) in Colombia just as you can in other parts of the world.
And nowhere in South America is this truer than for Colombian girls. There are some big cultural differences that exist between the typical European or North American woman and Colombian women. But being aware of some of the trends and characteristics that apply to Colombian women and the dating scene in Colombia may prove invaluable if you’re looking for some Latin romance.
The tremendous wealth which was generated from the trafficking of drugs created a culture of elaborate spending.
