Take, for instance, the sentence “Ella es muy bonita”, which is a perfectly legitimate way to say “She is very beautiful”.

Unsurprisingly, guys would again be thrilled to be called a ”papasito”. Even straight Colombian men can be heard using this phrase to (begrudgingly) admit that one of their male friends is good looking.

A highly popular, if rude, way to describe amazing looking girls. A slightly less popular slang term for an attractive person, which can be used for both men and women.

Be warned, though, that it is used almost exclusively to talk about someone, rather than ever being said straight to their face.

Dating in Colombia is definitely all about “survival of the fittest”.

Competition to get and keep partners is fiercer here than in any other country I have experienced.As I mentioned in my last article, male-female platonic friendships are considered far less common, particularly if the pair in question are single.So, even while you’re not in a relationship with someone just because you went on a date, it’s important to know that going for a casual drink with a guy would be considered a date in Colombia.Given that “chimba” is also a slang word for the female genitalia, it is obviously not the most romantic description, but it is widely used nonetheless.
