Wealthy sugar mamas dating young men is different from regular women dating single men. You need to know the differences between them. The rich “sugar daddy” term is too popular and now the term sugar mummy is popular as well. Generally speaking, many foreign or international men want to know what sugar mama meaning or how in the world is finding a sugar mama. The term “sugar momma, mummy, mama, mom, mothers” refers to a wealthy older woman who offers expensive gifts to younger and handsome men for love and romance.

In this modern era, the relationships between younger men and older women are popular. Especially, rich divorced white and black women from rich countries as America, Canada, Australia and so on look for local and international young men for romance. They are willing to offer money and expensive gifts in exchange for sexual favors. What they need is a good companion and complete sexual satisfaction. So, cougar mamas really seek strong and “big tool” young men whom they can enjoy the best sex.

What a rich sugar mama desires most is your nice personality and the sexual satisfaction. If you want to date a wealthy sugar mom, then you need to learn many things, not only your art of being a good friend but also your physical body. You need to have good knowledge about how to talk, act and treat an older woman. You also need to work out to make sure you are strongly in bed.

I don’t want to list steps you should do to win her heart because you are different and every rich sugar mom is different. Generally speaking, you need to show her that you have attractive confidence on her and that you can be the unique man in her life who can make her happy and satisfied from head to toe.

Many wealthy sugar moms are open to international and foreign young men from South Africa, Asia, Europe and West.

A lot of powerful women are actually sad. Sad that as busy and active they are, they long for warm words, friendship, sincere romance, and the security of trust.

I actually would like to have the opportunity of TRULY giving a woman a real kind of love and attention. Even if she had a high status, I would want her to know, that regardless of her money, wealth, and power, there are men out there, just like me, that actually want to give true emotion, and a commitment, whether she wanted it for a certain amount of time (weeks, months) she feels appropriate, or….for good.

Sure, the lifestyle would be nice to experience, but I, personally, would love to see the look on a wealthy woman’s face as she was “sincerely” treated with class, respect, and felt cared for and understood….and was really wowed in bed…not just decent, but absolutely wowed…and had a man snuggle her, talk to her, and be with her like she would want. If she was ever busy with her company or family, she wouldn’t be bothered for money or other things by this man. She was left to do what she needed to do, and still had him waiting for her when it was time to see each other again, whether it was the same day or some time later.

I would really like to see a powerful woman experience “real” love or attention….and not cheap thrills. From conversation, to walks, to hugs, understanding, and memories. And not for the sake of money. In her, there is a real woman that wants love. And it’s here…..i’m a songwriter, decent cook, terrific lover, and a good friend.

My Experience Dating Colombian Women in Medellin (UPDATED 09/13/17)

I have been on a quest to find my perfect Colombian woman match. In this post, I go over my experience: what works best and what doesn’t.

Halloween in Medellin is fun.

I wrote this post about my dating experience in Medellin back in April of 2013. It’s 2017 and I continue to update this post.

Medellin women are beautiful, and word is spreading pretty much around the world. Therefore, I have decided document my experience. I have been dating Colombian women for over 6 years now. When I first arrived here, there wasn’t yet a complete guide to dating paisa women. I had to learn everything from experience, and it’s been a blast.

Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before. Hot Medellin girls are not the sole reason for this rise in tourism to “The City of Eternal Spring”, but it is definitely up there. Furthermore, I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism in Colombia and I know that there are many strip clubs and brothels in Medellin; however, strippers and prostitutes are not the types of girls that I date, nor is it something I would like to promote, therefore, I will not be referring to that in this post.

I look Colombian!

My situation is a little different than most foreigners here in Colombia. I am actually Colombian, my family is Colombian, and more importantly (aside from my height, 6’2″) I look Colombian. I have lived my entire life, barring the past 5 years of course, in Southern California. At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look. So I do not have that instant “gringo effect” on them.

The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin. 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.

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!

I love Medellin women…and Medellin rum. It’s pretty easy to make friends here.

I speak Spanish fluently; therefore, I can’t play the “…no jaaabl0 Espanoler mucho bueno. Quieres practicar?” card with women. Regarldess, I look on the bright side and see this as an advantage. 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. 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. This has proven to be essential for me when picking up women in Medellin.

Meeting women in Medellin is not hard. 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. Typically, very beautiful girls in Medellin will go to a bar or a nightclub in a group, and there will be guys in that group usually. For an emasculated man from the United States, this is a nightmare. 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.

Here in Medellin, you do NOT need to play that game. Medellin nightclubs are for dancing, so it’s very easy to go up to a woman in a noisy disco, put out your hand, gesture for her to take it, and start dancing. I do this often, and many times I will dance one or two songs without even saying a word. Imagine, our hands are on each other’s bodies before even knowing each other’s names.

More often than not I’m not even interested in talking to the girl; I just want to dance and have fun. I get in there and leave silently. Amazingly, when I do that, women are more attracted than when I start talking to them while dancing. A certain amount of negligence after making an impression piques a woman’s interest, it is the whole psychological framework of the type of women who wants a strong man (check out this great article on Psychology Today by Gina Barreca, Ph.D.) I started to read about this subject back in high school. It is not about being petulant or rude, it’s about being confident (comfortable in your own skin.)

I meet women in Medellin by just living my life. Every day I see gorgeous women walking up and down the street. I go to the supermarket and I see beautiful women, I go get my hair cut and there’s a breathtaking woman, I go eat lunch and I see an amazingly attractive woman. Do not even get me started on the gym, it is almost like a circus sideshow in there. Seeing beautiful women here is so common that Colombian men don’t even turn to look, it’s ridiculous. I’ve been here 5 years and I’m still floored at some of the women in my gym!

On the street, I am usually attracted to women who look as if they are on their way to an office job. 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.

These are higher quality women than those you find in a reggaeton dance club, so for me it’s more fun to talk to this type of women, being that I always have interesting things to say and that I am generally curious and ask lots of questions (Women in Medellin, like most people in the world, like to talk about themselves.)

Professional women who are educated and have an active daily routine are abundant in Medellin. This type of woman works a lot so it’s not easy to wrangle them down and have them go out with you often, and for me, that’s perfect because I too am always busy. In Medellin, you will also find a lot of beautiful, smart women who have their own business or work independently. Being an entrepreneur my self this is a trait that I fancy.

Paisas are generally very proud, generous people and this “professional woman” is no exception. This is the type of woman that will discuss politics, religion, fashion, etc, and at the end of the date pull out her wallet and offer to split the bill and sometimes even pay for the whole meal.

It always annoys me when foreigners say that they always have to pay when they go on dates with Paisa girls, blaming the women and saying that Medellin women only want to take advantage of them. There’s a saying here in Colombia “Papaya dada, papaya partida.” Meaning that “if you look like a sucker you’re gonna get played like a sucker.” So don’t blame the women when in fact it’s your lack confidence that makes you “el bobo.”

Valentina is a cutie and smart. She’s currently learning English.

I teach English here in Medellin. Though I have a business and I have not worked a “regular job” in a few years; teaching English in Medellin has been the best move I could have made for my social life. I do NOT date my students. I am very North American in that regard. Though dating students in Medellin is not uncommon and sometimes not even frowned upon, it is definitely not acceptable in the United States, so I draw a line and never cross it. I am the leader in my classes and dating a student can get messy; I can lose all credibility and position in class, so I avoid it all together.

I do however go out with groups of students and/or colleagues in order to make friends and meet new people. Students will add me on Facebook and then their friends and cousins will add me. That has served to be an abundant source of women here in Medellin. Facebook is huge here, and striking up a conversation via facebook messenger after being added is not hard.

This was a new friend I made and decided to pick up for the picture at Carnaval de Barranquilla.

Most Medellin girls are pretty shy by nature. You have to understand that even though Medellin and the metropolitan area has around four million inhabitants it is still a small town. Medellin is a conservative city which is very much in touch with its old traditions and customs. Family life is very traditional. Gender roles are also very conservative and defined, so logically the women here, for the most part, are timid (until you get some alcohol in them and play some reggaeton, but we will get to that in a later blog post.)

This inherently coy personality could make it difficult for a foreigner, who doesn’t speak much Spanish, to gain a girls interest. Even for a fluent Spanish speaker, I have found it frustrating sometimes. Many a time have I given up on a girl only to find out later that she was very interested.

One night stands with women in Medellin are not very common for me. I definitely experienced more of this living in southern California than here in Medellin. A foreign-looking guy could probably have a very different experience. Not to say I haven’t had them here, but not as much as I did in the U.S.

She’s got a bit of a temper, but a very cool friend.

I have found that my best pickup move is being honest with women in Medellin. Letting them know right away that I work a lot, and that my business goals are my primary focus has proven to be a key factor when dealing with women here.

In my opinion, men and women in Medellin are possessive. They view their boyfriend or girlfriend as their possession, and they want to be viewed as a possession as well. So jealousy can get out of control. As an English teacher, most of my students’ ages range from 18 to 30 and there are always more female students than male. I love to ask my female students what they think of men in Medellin. It’s always pretty clear that women think that men are cheaters. It’s always noted that men in Medellin say anything to get a girl to fall for them.

There is a whole culture around having a “mosa,” in Medellin. It is almost expected for a man to have a chick on the side. So it’s no surprise that women become possessive and are quick to suspect a guy of sleeping around. I avoid this by being honest and direct.

Grooming and Wardrobe

This grooming and wardrobe section I just put in today (05/03/16). I had to include it because I meet far too many guys that are just clueless. So let’s go over some fashion faux pas (the don’ts) first.

  1. Don’t wear flip-flops (open toed shoes) if you want to pick up girls in Medellin. It’s ok on the coast, but here in Colombia, for some reason, women think it is gross.
  2. Don’t wear shorts. During the day it’s okay, as long as they are not boardshorts (beach shorts). Stylish shorts that come down to the knee or just above work well. It can get very hot during the day in Medellin, yet the majority of local men wear pants. Do NOT wear shorts to go out clubbing at night, they will not let you in. Melissa over at Medellin Living wrote a great piece on men’s fashion in Medellin.

  1. Do groom. This means plucking your nose and ear hair. The nicely groomed half-beard is in these days, so that’s ok.
  2. Do shave your armpits. You will rarely meet a Colombian guy that doesn’t, hence many Colombian women expect this. In fact, many shave their arms and sometimes legs too. I still think it’s pretty…feminine; therefore, I don’t do it. As long as your not super hairy you’re fine.
  3. Do tuck your shirt in when you go to a fancy club. Again, this is something that I do not do, but local males do this and women respond to it.
  4. Do take a shower. You will not get laid if you stink.
  5. Do brush your teeth. Colombians are obsessed with teeth. If you’ve got nice teeth this can be a great defining quality to women here.
  6. Do wear cologne. They love that here. Most local guys douse themselves in it.
  7. Do look sharp at all times. I’ve gotten in the habit of looking decent at all times, even when going to the gym or basketball practice. I’ll always carry an extra shirt, toothbrush, deodorant and body spray…because you never know whom you’ll meet on the Metro.

Updated 04/01/16 – I had to put this in because several of you have asked about it. When it comes to Dating Agencies I personally have never used one, therefore, I have no recommendations, I do know that there are a few out there that do a good job. I’ve met guys that have used them and have met great girls. In my opinion, it’s a great way to meet women without having to do too much work, also if your Spanish is limited, I can see how it can get your foot in the door. But just like anything else, at the end of the day, it’s just you in front of that girl, hence it’s all up to you and your personality.

I buckled down last year and got a Colombian Cupid dating site account (disclaimer: I’m not trying to push Colombian Cupid; that’s annoying. If you’re not interested in hearing my experience on the site just scroll down.)

I never felt the need to get an account because I meet so many people through my language exchanges and just living my life here in Medellin. Nevertheless, I subscribed for 3 months and gave it a whirl.

In 3 months I went on about 20 dates from Colombian Cupid. It was pretty amazing. Out of the 20 I became friends with 8 of the girls and we still hang out.

I found that the key to “matching” was to build out my profile really well. What does that consist of?

  • Picture – I had a great picture taken by my photographer friend, that’s the one I use as a profile picture. The other 4 pictures are pictures of me doing the things I love to do: playing basketball, watching Colombian soccer matches, having fun with friends, teaching, etc.
  • Description – I’m a very blunt and honest person. In my profile description, I wrote about myself in that way. Stating that I am from California, but that I am Colombian, that I am always busy working, playing on my basketball team, and exploring Colombia. I wrote this in both English and Spanish.
  • What I want – In the part that asks what I’m looking for I was very straightforward. I wrote: ‘I’m looking for a serious relationship, but if it doesn’t work I’m always open to making new friends. My ideal girl is someone that will motivate me and inspire me every day. If your profile says “soy una princesa” please do no contact me.’

My Colombian Cupid Profile

Once I had my profile built out over 90% (there’s a metric) I started messaging. I’m in sales, therefore, it’s all in the numbers. I’m not a handsome blue-eyed, blond-haired guy so I know my strength is my gift of gab. So I made a goal to message 100 women.

At first, I started by writing a funny, short message. That bombed for me…I don’t know why, but it just didn’t get any replies. So I put myself in the shoes of a paisa girl looking for a long-term relationship on Colombian Cupid, and I found my secret sauce.

My first message was a compliment about something they wrote on their profile, not about their looks. Thus, I had to take the time to read their profiles and make a comment about something they wrote. It took more time, but the success rate skyrocketed. Here’s the formula I found:

  • Do not click on the little heart to show interest. Very beautiful women get that every minute of the day.
  • Read profiles and make a compliment or a relevant comment.
  • If they don’t have a bio written out, I don’t write to them. If they don’t take the time to write out their bio and what they’re looking for then they are either too shy, not looking for something long term or it’s a fake profile for a prostitute or webcam girl.

Once I had a good message exchange I would go to my filter, Facebook. Once I had them on facebook I was able to see all of their pictures, and they were able to see all of mine. Once we were keen on each other I would ask for the date. If you don’t live in Colombia, you can do a Skype video call.

There are always over 800 girls online.

I’ve written a post titled, My Experience Using Colombian Cupid. Feel free to read it and leave a comment there if you have any questions.

I did a bit more research on the Cupid Media company and found that they’re all over the place, even Mexico, Brazil, and all of Latin America!

I have recently downloaded the Tinder and Happn application for my smartphone. I have friends that swear by them; they go on dates all the time. For me, I’ve had very limited success. I’m going to give it another try, I’ll come back and update this post.

Many guys have asked me about dating tour agencies in Colombia. Thus I have added this section.

Over the last six years, I’ve seen many of these come and go. They’re short lived for a few reasons, namely, they either get shut down by Colombian authorities for licensing, taxes or illegal activity (usually prostitution and scamming customers) or they get muscled out by the local mafia that has a grip on prostitution.

One of the sites that withstood the test of time is This is an actual dating agency that sets updating tours in Medellin and is completely legitimate. I came across the site when I saw a story featured on CNN than on the Today Show. I did more research and found out that the business is owned by an American, Mark and his Ukranian wife, Anne.

What really surprised me was when I actually met three guys (three different occasions) here in Medellin that were here for a week with a Dream Connections tour and they all had great things to say. I met them through a friend that was working as a translator for the company.

He no longer works with them, he actually branched out and has become a concierge and property manager. Anyway, when I met them, my first question was “what are the women that they set you up with like?” They all had a similar answer. The women were all professionals, lovely and not professional working girls.

I’ve never used this service, but over the last six years, it is the only dating tour site that has not only lasted but also thrived. It’s probably due to the owner, Mark, and the company values.

I’ve heard many foreign guys complain that they always get hit up for money (or things) by girls here. After six years of living here in Medellin I have discovered that most of the guys that get asked for cash or things are guys that try to date prostitutes.

Even though it might look enticing because they are beautiful, charming and down to earth…very rarely will you be able to turn a “hoe into a housewife.” You will be taken advantage of and you’ll resent Colombian women.

It’s not fair to generalize 25 million women because of a few bad apples. Instead go out and try to meet a normal girl perhaps at the mall, at the bank, at a cafe, etc.

Jessica is gorgeous.

I dated Jessica for a couple of months, but things just did not work out. Mostly because she had to go to Bogota for her internship and it was really hard to keep the relationship going long distance.

She’s an amazing girl: very hard working, independent, entrepreneurial, and very sweet. I’m sure that many guys would say that I’m nuts for not keeping her, but that’s just the way it is sometimes, just gotta keep moving forward and not look back.

Today, I’m actually super interested in another girl here in Medellin. She’s also very hard working, she’s more of a loose cannon than Jessica, meaning she’s a little more extroverted and opinionated, but that’s exactly the kind of girl I like. I’m definitely taking it slower with her, have been on 2 dates with her and kissed her only once. I’m making a conscious effort to be a complete gentleman and to get to know her well.

With the cheap plastic surgery here and the obsession with outward appearance, it’s easy to get caught up with a very “artificially” beautiful girl, but I’m well past that point. So I’m very happy to have met Monica and we’ll see where it goes. I’ll update soon.

Monica is in the middle, she’s got such great energy.

I’m no longer seeing Monica. I’m not seeing anyone girl right now. I’m just working very hard on my business and on a real estate project. I have made a lot of new friends though, and that’s always good. I will update in detail soon. For now, feel free to leave comments below, as you can see I’m pretty good at replying.

I’ve been super focused on my business, we’re opening up an office here in Medellin, we’re a digital marketing agency, Red Door Studios S.A.S. This has led me to go on far less dates than before. I do have a nice little anecdote though.

I was at the bank the other day and I had to do a transaction at the teller. I was not really paying attention, but when I was called to the window the girl that was helping me was absolutely gorgeous. I smiled and said hi, then asked her how she was doing. I think she was taken aback because not many people actually ask her that.

She said she was doing good and I told her that she must be new because I hadn’t seen her working at that branch. She said that they usually move them around. I told her that I needed to make a deposit, we proceeded with the typical transaction details.

As she was inputting data into the computer I told her that I thought it would be against bank policy for her to give me her phone number, therefore, I’d come back when she got off. She said that would be fine. As I walked away I stuffed the transaction receipt into my pocket and walked into the Exito (supermarket) to buy groceries.

My day was so full that I didn’t even eat lunch that day. Come 5:30 p.m. I had totally forgotten about the beautiful teller and proceeded to go play basketball as I usually do. When I got back home I remembered the girl. This has been my life for the last few months: business and basketball (I play on 2 teams here in the city) and admin the Medellin Basketball Association basketball group.

As I was getting ready to go to bed I emptied out my pants’ pockets. The deposit receipt was there and to my surprise…on the back…she had written her phone number. I immediately added it to my phone and sent her a WhatsApp message, telling her that I had missed her after work because I got caught up with work and then I went to play basketball. She replied that it was fine, we exchanged a couple more messages and have been speaking since. We should be going out this weekend.

It’s the middle of December and Christmas in Medellin is in full swing. Every weekend is a party and everyone is single, even girls with boyfriends are single in Medellin.

My favorite thing about December in Medellin is the street parties in different neighborhoods. The whole block is closed off and very loud music is played, food is cooked, and dancing and drinking continue into the middle of the next day.

Recently I reconnected with a girl who has been an acquaintance for more than a couple years now. She’s pretty and smart, but has always had a boyfriend since I’ve known her. Last weekend I went on a Christmas Chiva (party bus), and there she was, with a different guy. I just said hi and hung out and danced with the girls I came with.

After 2 hours of riding around town while drinking and dancing we talked. Low and behold she’s single. We danced for the rest of the night, then once the chiva dropped us off we continued talking (I blacked out for a good part, but I remember most of our conversation.)

This was last Saturday, it’s Wednesday today, and we’ve been talking on Facebook. Even though I’ve known her for 2 years, I didn’t really know here. It turns out that she works for the public utility company here, EPM, she’s an architect and her passion is dancing and is part of a team. She also lives alone and is quite intelligent.

Regardless of what happens with her, I think she’ll be a great friend to have.

On another note, I found a video that I had made with a Paisa friend of mine where I asked him questions about women in Medellin. Check it:

Well, the girl that I started to see in December has become just a friend. I really liked her a lot, but she did something that kind of confused me.

A couple weeks ago, she wrote me on WhatsApp. She wrote that she had been talking to her ex-boyfriend and that she was thinking about getting back with him. Mind you this is after we had already been out on several dates and gotten physical.

I told a friend about what she had said and he said that maybe she wanted to test me, to see if I’d get angry and tell her that she’s mine or maybe she was just being honest with me. I gave her the benefit of the doubt and went with thinking she was being honest.

I wrote her back and told her that I really liked her, but that she needs to do what makes her feel happy and that I still wanted to be friends, that I’m still here for her whenever she wants to talk or go dance bachata/salsa.

She hasn’t written me since. lol. I guess she wasn’t bluffing.

In lieu of being…dumped (we were never actually dating, but…still), I decided to reopen my Colombian Cupid Dating Site account. I talked to a few girls, but nothing special.

She is 21 and beautiful. At first, I thought, oh she’s too young…even though her profile stated that she likes guys between 25 – 35 I still didn’t think we’d have much in common or to talk about.

Regardless, I sent her a private message. Shortly after she replied and we started to exchange messages. Ultimately I got her phone number and added her to WhatsApp.

We went on our first date last Saturday. Thanks to my notes I know that her favorite food is Italian, so I took her to a great restaurant called IL Castello in el poblado. I had the Fettuccine Alfredo (very good.)

After that, we went for cocktails at a cool restaurant/bar called 37 Park near Parque Lleras, where we had a jar of white wine, lychee Sangria.

By this time I could totally feel the chemistry, so once we were done with the Sangria we headed over to Vintrash for dancing. Wow, can this girl move, I was floored. By the end of the date, we had connected very well through conversation, and physically through dancing and lots of kissing.

I would have to say that it was the best date I’ve had in a long time. I’m looking forward to seeing her more and to see where this all goes.

It’s been 3 months since I last updated. I’ve been “seeing” D this whole time and it’s been great. The best part about it is that she’s been adamant about not wanting a boyfriend, so I’m still free, thank god almighty!

So hanging out with D has made it clear to me that it is possible to find a girl that is 21 that’s hot, that I can actually have a conversation with and that works and studies. We do have some clashes on things…like her wanting to spend all weekend just “resting.”

Yeah I’m kinda weird I guess, many might say, why wouldn’t you want to be laying around with her all day?

To be honest, I get bored. I usually do stuff on weekends like play basketball. I play on two different teams in a couple tournaments and I play pick up as well. Or just going to Ciudad Del Rio to eat at the food trucks. Or going out with a group of friends to a bar or a club and having a fun time.

It seems like I’m more energetic than she is, but we compromise. Plus it’s not like I see her every day or all weekend. Regardless, I’ve been having a great time with her.

A couple of weekends ago we went to a finca (country house) on the lake at Guatape with a few friends. We had lots of food and drinks, swam in the lake, played soccer, pet the cows and had an awesome time.

Me, Dani, and Friends in Santa Fe de Antioquia

Well, I really haven’t been looking, but it’s funny how when you’re not really looking they kinda find you. Perhaps it’s the nonchalant attitude or the no pressure attitude. Whatever it is, it’s working well and I haven’t had any problems getting dates on weekends.

I’ve found some awesome new date spots that I wanted to share:

  • Bolivar Dance Club – this place is great if you want to take a girl out dancing. It’s a little more upscale so you should definitely wear nice clothes. The music is right up my alley, hip-hop, and reggaeton most of the time. NOTE: it’s 23 and over, I tried to go in there with D and we were denied at the door.
  • Victoria Regia – an awesome lounge/bar/restaurant. Perfect for a date. They sometimes have live music, so check their events.
  • Eden Bistro – Korean food! Yes, finally a real Korean restaurant. Granted that many Colombian girls might not be as adventurous when it comes to food…this place is casual and fun. They also have cocktails and beer in case your date is not into the food.
  • Mercado Del Rio – This is definitely a fun place to go to. It’s a big market-style eatery that was basically built in a hangar. There are tons of restaurants (mostly barbecue style) inside including a wine bar, a couple cafes, and a dance club on the third floor. It’s a great place for a date or just to go hang out with friends.

It’s been four months since I last updated. I’m still seeing D. She’s 21, I’m 36, I work a lot and so does she. She works at a bank full time. So we see each other sometimes during the week, but mostly on weekends.

Before meeting me she had a bad breakup, and she’s always had me at arm’s length in terms of expressing her feelings. She has always said that she doesn’t want a relationship, that we’re having fun and that’s it, however, a few weeks ago we were out partying with my friends in Envigado. There were other girls there, and we were all dancing. I danced with a girl, one of my brother’s girlfriend’s friends, I didn’t think much of it, we finished dancing, I turned to D, and she had this angry look. She didn’t say anything and just up and left. Got in a cab without explanation and took off.

Anyway, I didn’t talk to her for two weeks. I’m too busy to be chasing girls. I really like her a lot and I’ve expressed it to her, yet she’s been cold.

Last week she wrote me and told me that she missed me, I told her the same. So we met up for dinner. She arrived with a gift bag and gave it to me. It was a little-stuffed animal and a card, which I thought was awesome.

Women, regardless of what nationality, are weird.

So now we’re good, but with her mood swings, I’m sure we’ll have some sort of fight. The good thing is that she now knows that I don’t like to play that cat and mouse game. I told her that I love hanging out with her and that if she ever feels angry or that I’ve done something to hurt her that she should talk to me instead of just storming off. So we’re good now, but we’ll see.

The man pays. Period. I don’t care how broke you are or how you feel that they are taking advantage of you. In my book…(my dad’s book originally, lol), if I’m taking a girl out for a nice time, I always pay, no question.

I remember when I was a kid and I was going to go on my first date with a girl. I asked my dad for money to go to the movies. He told me that I had to work for it. So I went to his business and worked all day for which he paid me $20.00. He then said that I had to go to work the next day as well. I laughed, and said, “right.” He said I needed another $20 for the date. At 13 I was baffled by this. I asked, “what do you mean?”

He said that I needed to have money for: her movie ticket, popcorn, soda and ice cream after the show; that if I didn’t go to work the next day he would not let me go to the movies. I quickly found a great excuse, “but I have homework to finish.”

“You know the answer, figure it out,” he replied.

He continued, ‘…paying for everything doesn’t make you a “real man,” the point is that money should never be an issue. If you work hard and smart, you’ll be able to go on as many dates as you want and never have to have the lack of money hinder your experience.’

How the fuck was I going to argue that?

In Medellin, women, in general, expect the guy to pay. It’s part of people’s frame of mind. Of course, there are women that will offer to split or pay the whole tab. Furthermore, there are girls that will want to take advantage. If you’ve got a girl asking you for money or to buy her things, then it’s probably a good idea to stay away. Unless if you don’t mind.

With D, I always send an Uber to pick her up and bring her to my apartment or to our date spot. It literally costs about $8,000 pesos ($3.50 US), it’s pretty negligible. It makes her feel important, which she is, and she’s never late, which can be a problem in Medellin.

Oh, hey, I’ve found some really great places for breakfast (now that I’m on a no processed sugar, carbs or alcohol diet I wake up early on weekends).

Al Alma – This is my favorite for two reasons, the coffee is great and the portions are big. There’s one in my neighborhood, Manila, but they have several locations, check out the Al Alma Facebook page.

Huevos Campesinos are the bomb!

Ganso & Castor – This place is a little slow when it comes to service, but they have great Eggs Benedict, so it’s worth the wait. There’s a spot in my neighborhood, but like Al Alma they have a few locations around the city. Check out the Ganso & Castor facebook page.

UPDATE #8 – 09/13/17 – Making Myself Better

One of the things that I’ve found to really help improve my relationships with women in Medellin is self-improvement. On December of last year, I made a few resolutions to make myself better in all areas of life.

A post shared by Andrew Macia (@andrewmacia) on Sep 11, 2017 at 5:45am PDT

  1. Improve my body (I’ve lost over 30lbs since January):
    • Diet – I was overweight and weak. I vowed to quit eating processed sugar and processed carbs. I’ve held that promise to this day. It’s not a “diet” anymore. It’s a lifestyle. After much research, I’ve decided that the next step is to try the Keto Diet. Even though I’m pretty strict as to what I eat, I still eat well. I’ve even formed a Medellin Foodie Group. We meet every Wednesday at a different restaurant. It’s a great way to try new food and meet new people.
    • Gym – I joined Smart Fit gym and love it! It’s only $69,000 per month for the Black membership, which lets me go to any Smart Fit gym in Colombia. I go to the gym every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
    • 100 Day Challenge – 140 days ago a few friends and I decided to challenge ourselves and do 100 pushups and situps for 100 days straight. We made a WhatsApp chat group in order to keep each other accountable. We upload a video of one of our sets every day. If someone doesn’t upload a video we take $50,000. We finished our 100-day challenge 40 days ago, we felt so awesome that we decided to make it a 200-day challenge. We’re on day 140 today.
    • Basketball – I also made a resolution to play more basketball in Medellin this year. Since January I’ve been playing every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. I joined 3 teams to play in tournaments and games are on Saturdays and Sundays. Basketball serves as great exercise and a great distraction from work and life in general. My Medellin Basketball Association group on Facebook has grown immensely.
  2. Improve my mind
    • Books – This year I made it a resolution to read more books. At least one a month. This year I’ve read Tools of Titans, Mindset, The 110% Solution, SCRUM, Digital Gold, Treasure Island, Dune, The Best Salesman in the World (again), Little Red Book of Selling (again), One Minute Manager (again.)
    • Online Classes – I’m always taking online classes for various things, usually related to my business. I use edX to take online classes offered by top universities like Berkeley, Harvard, and MIT. Currently, I’m doing the Google Online Challenge.
  3. Improve my business
    • 2016 was a good year for my business, Red Door Studios. Since we’re a digital marketing agency scaling can be tricky and in some cases involves hiring a ton of people.
    • I’ve been reading books like SCRUM and The One Minute Manager to help me strengthen my core employee group and it’s been working.
    • I’ve also asked for help and advice from some of my friends here in Medellin who have made it big, like: Colin, CEO of Learn Crypto Fast, Brent Mauriello, CEO of FlexFire LEDS, and Zach Blenkinsopp, CEO of Digital Roofing Innovations. It really is true that your network = net worth.

All of these things have helped me become more awesome. My 3-year goal is to help retire my parents, therefore, I need all the energy, motivation, and positive influences I can get.

If you go to this blog you’ll see that I love to write about many different topics. Not surprisingly this post generates 80% of all my website’s traffic. The keyword: “Colombian women” is searched for over 40,000 times a month, and this blog post is now on the first page of results.

It is not my intention to degrade or generalize Colombia women. I find that dating in Medellin is an interesting topic and I think I have a pretty unique view.

Medellin is a beautiful city with a lot to offer. Unfortunately, its reputation precedes itself and most people think that it’s just a place to find hot, beautiful, easy women, but when they get here they’re faced with a harsh reality. My intention is to show how these stereotypes are not true, how diverse dating can be in Medellin, and of course how interesting the Paisa woman is.

I think I covered some very relevant basics here, but if you’re actively meeting women in Medellin (or would like to start), Dating Medellin has produced an excellent course that covers everything. I highly recommend it.

About the writer – Andrew Macia

Hello, my name is Andrew Macia and the Medellin Buzz is my blog. I moved to Medellin in 2010 and fell in love with the city. I taught advanced level English for four years and then started a digital marketing company.

I love Colombian, and Medellin is my home. I like to write and I want to give back to the community. This is the best way I know how. I hope you enjoy my blog!

About the Medellin Buzz

I started the Medellin Buzz as a resource for my English as a foreign language student. A site where they could read about their city in English, that wasn’t boring. It slowly turned into a personal blog and hub for information for people discovering Medellin. I check comments frequently, so feel free to leave your comment and/or questions below.

In Medellin you will also find a lot of beautiful, smart women who have their own business or work independently.

Do you have any data to back this up? I don’t think that anyone who lives in Medellin, Paisa or extranjero would agree there are a lot.

Good question. I don’t have any actual cencus data to back this up. This post is about my personal experience. I have found many, and see many every day here in downtown. Teaching English to 18 to 30 year olds has made me more aware of that group of women as well.

I wouldn’t say it’s the majority, but I’ve definitely known what I would consider “a lot” of women in that category.

i totaly agree with that! I by myself fund exat one of these girls!By casualty but i think more or less he s right in what he sais.

Maybe you forgot that a bunch of the “girls”

Well done like it!

Must you be able to speak Spanish to teach English there? It may sound odd but many places this is not a requiement. Who do you work for

No speaking Spanish is not a requirement. Most private institutions like it when a native English teacher doesn’t speak Spanish, in order to challenge the students.

Really interesting post! I’m curious, Where/how can one get a English teaching job? How long does one have to teach?

Competition for teaching jobs is growing and growing here in Medellin. Not only are there more foreigners wanting to teach, but there are also many Colombians, not only from Medellin, but from nearby cities. Universities and private institutions alike require credentials. Whether it is a pedagogy degree or an English teaching certification like the TESOL or CELTA they usually require something. As for applying for a teaching job showing up and hounding the director or the person in charge of hiring is key. Most of the time you need to know someone working at the place, having an “in” is a big thing here. If you do not have an “in” you must be persistent. There are more than 100 private English institutions here in Medellin, so there is an opportunity. As for wages, most private institutions hire teachers as independent contractors for part time or full time work. Some smaller institutions are poorly managed and getting paid on time can be an issue. If you’re organized at all, with a little marketing and hustle you can start doing private classes until you land a decent job.

My name is Rick. I live in Chicago. I am originally from India. I visited Cali and Kartagena 3 months and now coming to Medellin on octo 28. I love the Colombian girls and their style so here I am. Thank you for your experience sharing in Medellin. I. Would like to get to know the local culture by mingling with locals so can I spend few hours in your English class to experience the local way of life ? Possibly go disco dancing with few of your fiends but of course all drinks are on me. I am not really interested in strip clubs or etc

Hi Rick, sorry for the late reply, but it looks like you’re still in town. I’m having one of my big language exchanges this Friday, November 6th. You should come, it’s a great way to practice your Spanish, help locals practice their English, and of course meet people. Here’s the event on Facebook: See ya.

Hi Rick, that’s awesome, one of my good friends, who is also Indian, lives in Chicago! Well feel free to hit me up when you get here!

Lol Rick makes me laugh, No one is really interested in Indians from India, I guarantee you my head on a block, Colombians don’t mingle nor like Indians because of there sink, My gf is in Colombia and we actually laugh over Indians.

Yes Mike, you are correct there are ignorant, racist people all over the world, including Medellin…as you have proved. However, Rick, I do have a few friends that are Indian that have managed to make lots of friends and actually run businesses and lead a successful life here in Medellin: Sidhartha, owner of the restaurant Curry ( being one of them.

Don’t let a couple bad apples ruin the bunch. People in Medellin are very friendly and are generally accepting of foreigners in their city.

If you look beyond the “gringo hunter” type of chics that are usually found around Lleras, you’ll be amazed how many working and independant paisa girls are around. They are just not usually interested on gringos, which is why they are not easily found by foreigners. Just to give you an example, there is about 3,000 registered hair salons and beauty supply shops in Medellin, and most of them are owned by women.

That’s a really good point. Most of the girls I know, and meet are not girls from Parque Lleras, Poblado, Rio Sur, or La Strada. As a matter of fact the only times I’ve had one night stands have been with girls I’ve met in those places. Thanks for the comment.

Well I have one so yeah I don’t know about a lot but they so exist.

The only data that u shut pay attention about Medellin is that if you are an American you are a prime($$$) walking target for common criminals and organize crime… And they use good looking girls to get to you.

What kind of scare tactic is this? Yes there are bad people here, but crime occurs everywhere in the world. If you’re not a fool you can easily avoid being targeted for crime.



Ah that really sucks. I can see why you’re traumatized. My friends and I (all entrepreneurs) have been living here for over 6 years now. Not one has had that happened to them. There are also another 2,000 + foreigners living in Medellin and surrounding area…I would speculate that a very low percentage have been done dirty. Rule number one…if a girl looks out of your league, she’s probably going to do you dirty.

I spent 2-1/2 months in Medellin last summer. I think it is pitiful that you cannot write something less shallow about such a beautiful, vibrant city than how to pick up Medellin women! Everyone knows the women there are beautiful and easy to meet and date. And that they love foreigners, even though you are Colombian. How about the gastronomy, culture, events, music?? THAT would be much more helpful to those who want to experience Medellin. To go there looking for women is pathetic and gives US men a really bad name – kind of like the incident with the Secret Service in Cartagena. Really.

I have written about all of those topics. If you look through my blog all of those topics are covered, even history (my associates and I are tour guides here in Medellin), but this is the topic that gets the most attention. With all due respect I think you’re getting worked up over nothing. I think my post is probably one of the least offensive and paints the Medellin woman in a positive light.

I think it paints them as easy pick-ups. Maybe most of your readers are men if this topic gets the most attention. I’m not “worked up” at all – it was my opinion of your blog. As I mentioned, it’s just a very shallow topic, but maybe what your male readers look for – I don’t know.

I completely respect your opinion and value your input. I would like to continue writing about relationships in Medellin, so I’d like to ask you what in particular did you perceive as shallow? The topic of dating in Medellin? The fact that I prefer women who are professional? Thanks again for your comment.

You are doing a great job. Just remember you can’t satisfy everyone.

It is very easy to safe yourself a peace of mind. Just do not read, and of course, do not judge things you are opposing naturally. By the way, ”easy pick-ups” you may call ”open minded” or ” deprived of prejudices”, whatever the choice is yours.

“Easy pick ups”means that this Colombian

Needs and money is the only good thing they see on this

losers that they cant not get late in their own countries. (:

In N. America women say they got HIT On. In Colombia they call it meeting someone. This might be why Americans talk about it…cause the women are not like you, and a lot of other American uptight women. Good Luck.

And this is the reason why most guys including myself don’t date American women because 95% of them have this same sistah attitude like this woman here making a mountain from a molehill..

They like attention so much and when they see other women especially cute women who are not fake like them nor have this man like attitude like them getting all the attention they get pissed off and nitpick every little thing out of frustration.

If y’all change your attitudes and stop trying to be the man in the relationship then you will start getting back the good men fleeing to Phillipines and Colombia.

Truth.. If that is how you feel then more power to you. I don’t see the grand nor exalted reason for wanting to be in any relationship either so that wouldn’t be a problem for me..

Life is about living the way you feel is right for you..

I just wanna have fun and get a relief whenever my cup overflows so I wouldn’t have a problem even if they’re married as I’m not there nor in life to find a wife(misery)..

I pay my dues when she comes over to provide for me and we’re cool.

Problem with men is that they become too attached to the female specimen..

If you would like my perspective for your next article, let me know!

First i would like to say that it is a great issue to write about.

I gor to tell you the truth, when i read this post i got the feeling you would like to talk about your self a lil too much. And i, as someone that also live in medellin, i dont think the things are as you describe. The avarage girls will expect you to pay for everything, spescialy the texi. The kind of girls are you describe are exsisted, and i know them as well, but they are not common. The high quality girls wouldnt be that fascinated from the gringos. Normaly the low level will.

Try to write less about your stories and to bring more facts that connected to reality.

Hi Another Anonymous, thanks for the constructive criticism. I will work on getting more actual facts. The real fact is that I don’t like doing that. I rather speak about my own experiences, but I guess you are right; when writing about delicate issues like gender and relationships one should have some stats. Thanks again.

I am 60. I date 50 to 60 YO or so. Often they find me as fascinating as I find them. It is often a great experience.

I?m one of those smart independent women that you are talking about and I really appreciate this article, it?s good to know that there are guys out there who appreciate more than a hot body or beautiful face… I don?t like when people stereotypes women in Medellin based on certain type of women (whom I respect as much as any other person)but that is just a parcial sample of paisa women.

I am Spanish tutor for foreigners in case someone is interested.. I?ll share this post with my students ??

That’s great Mony. I’m glad you liked the article. Feel free to put your contact information and/or website link here, so that people can find you.

Women who fall for the “Alpha Male” then end up alone and stranded and probably with kids hopefully will be wiser the second time around. Women who like a man who is not nice need a psychologist. Live and learn and is this not why so many Colombian women think the men are all cheaters and then seek foreign men? Live and learn or error again? I hope not!

Hi andrew. I ve been following your posts lately. I just have to say you “change minds” even paisas minds as mine.

I am too glad that a foreigner people as you write such a beutiful things about our city.

thanks a lot and I am looking foward to attend one of yor conversatories.

Espero que no haya cometido muchos errores. hablo espanol, soy paisa y estudio ingles por mi cuenta.

Hi Jhon, thanks a lot. I look forward to meeting you at our next Conversation Club Cocktail Party.

I have been reading your posts and I am happy to see an honest approach to life there and to hear such a positive outlook on life there with your personal experiences. I definitely have a interest in visiting Medellin soon and exploring life and business there.

Your Conversation Club Cocktail Party sounds intriguing.

Hi Stacey, thanks for the positive feedback. Medellin is a great place to be, but then again a positive mind can make any place a great place. You gotta come see it to make it your own. I hope to meet you when you get down here.

I am an older(60+)educated American with a guaranteed income of about $4500/mo. I am totally interested in living in a city outside the US that will allow me more for my money and is friendly to Americans just looking to integrate into their lifestyle and culture. Not being discriminated against for being 60 is also important. American women treat older guys like they don’t exist. I am healthy fit and handsome. Is Medellin worth giving a shot. I love the idea of teaching English. I taught high school for a few years. Thanks for any and all responses. BTW. I am blue-eyed white guy and unfortunately don’t look Columbian.

Hi Hollis. Medellin should definitely be on your list of cities to consider. In regards to ageism in the dating world here. I really wouldn’t be of great help in this department. There is, however, ageism for work here. It is very rare to see anyone over 40 years old working. Since you were a teacher you could perhaps work at a university, but you have a fair warning. BTW being a blue-eyed white guy works to your advantage here.

Thanks Andrew. Encouraging words and nice to hear. I’m thinking teaching also as a way to get involved and participate in the lives of the kind of people I’m interested in getting to know. I know some rudimentary Spanish that I would love to build on. Given any opportunity I think I can handle the dating scene.

Yeah, I think you’ll do fine dating, it’s the, finding a job, part that is tougher. But if you’re committed you’ll find it.

Thank you very much for sharing your experiences without advertising for some dating site or other. It makes you much more credible.

I’m about to go on early retirement. I’m 45 and decent looking for my age. I’ll have an income of about $2,700 a month. I’m not an alpha male. I used to be quite confident in myself, but now I’m probably more considered as soft spoken. I’m adventurous in physical aspects of life but timid in the social sphere.

I was wondering if alpha males are generally what Medellin women want or if there’s a similar diversity as there is here in Scandinavia where I live? I’m thinking about moving to Colombia due to the climate and the lower living costs. However, I’d like to find steady a living partner. How easy is it finding one, if I’m past the dancing scene? And holding on to her if she happens to be attractive?

Thanks for the comment. I write based on my experience and my personality. Alpha males are not all that Medellin women look for. Medellin has all types of women, so finding yourself a woman with the qualities you like is possible. I encourage you to come and test the waters. If you do visit Medellin make sure that you come for at least a month or two because most respectable women take a while to warm up to. You’re 45, your in the prime of your life! There are so many things to do and see here. You’ll have a great time.

I heard k-pop is huge in Medellin or in Colombia in general.(or South America.)

I have heard from my Korean-American friends who went to Colombia for certain business projects and have told me that they treat you, “Chinos”, like some celebrity.

He told me a lot of young college aged Colombian girls would come up to you and ask to take pictures with them and etc. (I’m a Korean-American as well.)

I have plans on visiting many countries in 2015 and Colombia is one of the country I will visit for sure!!

I love food so food adventure will be the number one priority to venture Colombia but not alone. I also have interest on meeting a local beautiful Colombian woman, not prostitutes, and find some romance at the same time too.

Yo MKO, the short answer is yes, you have a chance at finding romance in Colombia. I have a couple of Asian American friends here and they’ve found girlfriends here. I wouldn’t say that K-Pop is huge, but yes there are many girls who like it. I teach English and there is always a couple of students who love K-Pop or Korean soaps. As for being treated like a celebrity, yes Colombians love foreigners and are always curious, so don’t get offended if they comment on your eyes or your language, they don’t do it with the intent to offend.

hey Andrew! I love your article, it’s very interesting.

I used to be your student, so I Know some things about you… you’re an excellent person and an excellent teacher.

I admire you alot… my best wishes

Carol, thank you! You have definitely been one of my best students. It was fun being your teacher.

im a california native thinking of traveling to medellin. how can i contact you? i found your article to be straight forward, honest, and definitely one of the less offensive on this particular subject. well done.

Hi Stephen, thanks! Yeah Medellin is great. The only thing missing is the beach, I used to live in Huntington Beach. It’s always great to hang with fellow Californians here. Hit me up when you’re down here, you can email me at

First of all, I’m enjoying reading your blog. It’s giving me details on specific things that other non natives have provided on Medellin so hopefully you can give me some advice.

I’m planning on coming over in September to teach English, I work here in Scotland for a national newspaper ( but realistically, I can only really see me getting a job as a TEFL teacher.

I’ll be coming with roughly $4500 – Is this enough to give me a ‘cushion’ whilst looking for work?

Second question: I’m only learning Spanish now, is it expensive getting a local tutor?

Final question: Just to keep with the theme of your blog. Im a blue eyed Scotsman, is it worth my while bringing my kilt or is that trying too hard with the local ladies? Haha.

I’m sorry for the late response dude. Got caught up with work. Anyway, my advice is:

1. Being certified and having worked for the I don’t think you’ll have a hard time finding for a job. Getting a job in Colombia, is cool at first, because you’re in a new city, with new colleagues, you gotta take the public transport, etc. It’s all exciting, but after a few months you might get bored, and then your pay might take precedence. I think the key would be for you to get into a good paying position. I’m an entrepreneur here, and there are many groups and a large expat community of entrepreneurs that can help you find other opportunities too.

2. $4,500 is a good cushion, if you don’t live in Poblado. I recommend living in a lower income level yet safe neighborhood first, once you get your bearings and cashflow up you can get into some of the more expensive neightborhoods. I’ve lived in Floresta, San Diego, Centro, Calazans, and they’re all affordable, safe, and near public transport.

3. Bring the Kilt! People love cultural items, especially if it’s something way different than what they are used to here. So it’ll be an immediate conversation piece. If other foreigners hate on you for it, fuck em’, and rock it. I’m sure you’ll be a hit with the locals.

Go for it, Michael. They will love the kilt. I am also Scottish and lived in Lima in the 1980s and it was certainly ‘vale la pena’ (well worth while) to wear the kilt and learn EFL and, of course, Spanish (or as they call it, castellano).

I am going to Colombia within the next year and am really looking forward to it. I’m sure you will also find the women more attractive than in the UK (especially in Scotland).

I just want to question, and what is the better place to know girls?

I understand your questions, but in English we don’t know people, we “meet” them. So the questions should be: “I just want to ask what’s the best place to meet girls?”

Answer: The best place to meet girls in Medellin…is…well…anywhere. The supermarket, the library, the metro, at a bar, dancing, etc. Paisas are very friendly people, so anywhere you approach someone and just ask a question or spark up a conversation you’ll be treated in a warm manner.

Andrew ,this is the best blog I have had the pleasure to read. lets see if I can verbalize my story. and tell me what you think. I met a Medellin girl on a dating website. we clicked very fast. and to make a long story short. She invited down to Medellin Colombia. I speak Spanish ,I would say as a second language. I was a NYPD Detective and I just retired. Here is my story. my girlfriend met me at the airport in Rio Negro. We were shuttled off to a Hotel that my girlfriend picked out. I had no inpout in this choice. It was not in Poblado, for some reason we ended up on Carretera 70. Wall to wall little discos that are blasting music all night. In poblado I understand the Hotels are like $85.00 per night. I had to stay in Medellin for a month.

So I was stuck down by the metro near the stadium stop on Carrera 70. Being a Detective from NYPD I was kind of anxious being the only gringo in this disco area. There is like 30 disco’s in area. I know that they know that I was a Police Officer or DEA and they were right. I did work for the DEA in a task force, that’s another story.

I was told to take off my gold chain, gold watch, anything Gold, the Police roll in late or early in the morning in a military vehicle like 10-15 all together. To be honest with you Andrew I felt there was an unverbalized thing going on that you are not where you should be. plus my girlfriend and guys selling souvenirs in front of the hotel told me be careful.

I needed a guard from the Hotel to get monies from the cajero (ATM). Plus, of course my girlfriend shows me a video of 5-6 Colombian soldiers in a military jeep all shot through the head. my girlfriend is super jealous and protective. Your right about the jealousy, anyway, after they filled me with horror stories about being kidnapped, murdered or worse during the Pablo Escobar period. I was totally paranoid about even buying a beer solo at night.

Maybe they just psyched me out. I never did get to Poblado or any other nice area, only the malls. What is your opinion of that area down by Carrera 70. I have to go back and get my now “fiance” for her interview. but the girls are beautiful, sexy, sultry, the best looking girls in el mundo. Ja ja.

Andrew is it as dangerous as I perceived or am I just paronoid form my perception. I never heard the word drugs, nor did I ask about the mafia. Its just something you don’t talk about. With good reason. But upon arrival back in Miami the Border patrol agents took me into a room and gave me a complete search and investigation of what the hell I was doing in Medellin.

Even with my Police documents it wasn’t fun. To make matters worse I go to send my fiance some monies via Western Union, more then $1,800, to buy a cheap motor bike. and Western Union not only put a hold on the monies, but never notified me. I had to go and call them and they gave me the third degree. W

Why I was sending money to Medellin. To whom I was sending it. For what reason. What I was doing in Medellin.

I know the story. Miami was the money laundering capital during the Pablo Escobar era, but this is like 20 years ago. Anyway, they refused to release the monies in Colombia after an hour of investigation. What a total disgrace. Anyway that’s my story. If I had to do it over again , I would have went straight to Poblado and payed for a hotel.

I just think I was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but I have a beautiful fiance. And for her I probably would do it again, but its not for anyone who doesn’t speak or understand Spanish. Thanks for your time Andrew.

Wow what a great story. I hope it all turns out well with your new fiance. Here’s my take:

1. The neighborhood you were in is called Estadio it boarders the Laureles, Floresta, and Belen neighborhoods. Which are all decent neighborhoods. I lived in Floresta (Carrera 80) just a few blocks up. And I have a friend who owns the best Hostel in Medellin right there on la 70 about 6 blocks from the stadium, you might consider staying in one of the private rooms there next time (The Wandering Paisa Hostel).

2. Colombians are notorious for scaring the shit out of their foreign friends and/or family members when they get here. My own family tried to do it to me when I got here. Filled me with horror stories about foreigners getting mugged in plain daylight, getting taken on la vuelta millionaria (where they take you at gun point to different ATMs and make you withdraw money, etc). Luckily I have one awesome uncle who lives in Bogota and does business in downtown Bogota who told me that he’s been going to downtown Bogota for over 20 years and has not once been mugged or robbed. It’s all about being aware and getting the fuck out of a place whenever you feel uncomfortable. So yes your fiance and her friends were being way too over protective and scared you, that area by the stadium is fine, especially la 70 at night. The whole thing about traveling is that you have to be more on guard than you do in your own town in the U.S. You don’t have to travel very far from Miami to feel a little unsafe, just go to Hialeah.

3. $1,800 for a “cheap” mortorcycle?! That’s not cheap, you can buy 2 motorcycles for that price. $1,800 US is about $4’600.000 COL. She can buy a brand new AKT scooter (not cheap) for that price: Make sure you’re not getting into the typical trap with foreigners here, where they are sucked dry by a beautiful girl. Maybe she doesn’t want something cheap, which is usually the case with people…well all around the world, and she said “cheap” in an attempt to be humble. I’d put her to the test and tell her: “Mi amor, mira, encontre unas motos muy economicas por la pagina mercado libre, and send her this link:” This site is like It’s where people put up used stuff for sale. You get great deals, but it’s just not new. If she comes back and says, “Ay no, eso usado no.” Then perhaps you’ll need to work on your communication because what she really wants is something new and not cheap. (I’m just speculating, maybe she never said the word cheap and you were assuming that $1,800 for a bike is cheap in Colombia.)

I hope I have been of some help or at least given you more insight. Let me know what happens.

Dear Andrew, how are you, hope you’re doing well? I read your article and I really enjoyed it and I got great information from it. I live in San Antonio, Tx and I’ve been to Cali Colombia on many occasions in the past. My girlfriend Angela lives in Medellin, we want to get engaged in October of this year, she is a size 8, but I can’t find its equivalent size here in the states. I was told not to order a ring from jewelry stores in Colombia, because I’ll get ripped off of my money and never see the ring. Is there any truth to that and what can I do?

Thanks for the comment. To be honest I don’t know anything about jewelry in Colombia. I suggest you pose the question on an expat group in Facebook: You’ll probably get an answer from someone who has had that experience here already. There are a few big shopping centers and I’m sure that if you buy the ring at one of the stores in one of those shopping centers it’ll be fine. As far as price comparison to the states, I don’t know.

Congrats on getting married and good luck on the ring hunt.

hi firstly just want to say very good article, im english and looking to come to Medellin next year for travelling(around about 6 months or as long as im granted). i have a few questions to ask. happy to stay in hostels or really cheap flats/rooms so how much money would i need to at least save up for that time and also can you recommend any good, safe hostels to stay in?

2.if im over there and decide i would like to try and find a job am i applicable to obtain a work visa/if so is that easy to do so? many Spanish classes would i need to take before arrival?

First, thank you, I appreciate the positive feedback.

1. Hostels are relatively cheap here in Medellin. A couple of my favorites are: The Wandering Paisa Hostel (It’s located in a safe neighborhood called Laureles, near the stadium. It’s away from where most tourists are, but that adds to the adventure. It’s owned by my buddy from Seattle. Check em out Wandering Paisa Hostel.) If you want to be in the Poblado neighborhood, where most tourists are. A couple of my favorites are Geo Hostel (it’s relaxed, definitely not a party hostel) Buddha Hostel and Casa Kiwi (don’t let Casa Kiwi’s atrocious website bother you, it’s definitely a party hostel.) Take a look at their prices and you’ll be able to calculate what you need to save. You might get tired of the dorm life at the hostels. If so, you might want to check out some rooms for rent on Couch Surfing or on the many Facebook Groups. I would save up at least $3,000 to $5,000 for the six months. I don’t know how you travel and what you like to do, but money can fly here in Medellin because everything seems to be so cheap.

2. You could get a job and you could get a work visa. It depends on what your credentials are and what the job is. I have many friends who are here on work visas, so it is possible, but not easy. If I were you, I would start looking into that now, not when you get here. The process is usually long, so it’s best to get a head start.

3. Spanish is pretty critical here. Most of the population here does not speak English at all. So you need some basic Spanish, 2 months of intensive classes should be enough to get by, but I suggest you continue classes here, they’re not expensive, my friend Violet can help you with that. If you live in Poblado, in a hostel, you’ll probably be speaking in English a lot, but if you go anywhere out of the hostel i.e. restaurants, bars, dates, the metro, etc, you’ll be speaking in Spanish.

hi andrew, thanks for getting back so quick and taking the time to write back. i like the look of the geo hostel so i will probably stay there. im thinking possibly of coming to colombia to study spanish on a student visa as you can get up to a year(1 option im considering). a few more questions if you dont mind

1.are colombian women keen on english men? i love colombian women especially their mentality and loyalty so would be keen on possible romance(i know this as i have a colombian girl mate).

2. in terms of money would it be better to open an colombian bank account if im bringing say ?10,000 pounds?

3. would i be safe carrying a bank card around while im there or is it best to leave it at home and take minimal cash out?

thanks again andrew. theres a lot of things i need to ask regarding colombia as i really want to go there and maybe live there in the future

Dude sorry for the late reply, I had some issues with the site and I’ve also been waaaay busy with my business that this is the first time in over a month that I log on, but I’m back on track now. Anyway, to answer your questions:

1. Yes. The great thing about Colombian women is that there is not just one type of guy that they like. I’ve met women that strictly like guys from their region and I’ve met women who only date foreigners. So you’ll find everything and I’m sure you won’t have a hard time meeting them as long as you’re patient and a gentleman.

2. It’s a good idea to open a Colombian bank account, just because it’s better (safer) to have that money in the bank instead of carrying around a bunch of cash. And when I say safer, I don’t mean that in Colombia people are just waiting to rob you, I mean anywhere in the world that you carry around 10,000 pounds you’ll be a target. The banks exchange rates are always fluctuating, so I’d consult that first before opening the account.

3. Carrying a bank card is fine. Especially if you’re staying El Poblado or anywhere near there. It’s unsafe to carry one around if you’re getting wasted drunk and walking around town at 4:00 a.m.

Hi.. What a great article and blog. Thanks for the amazing insight. It’s really helpful and the honesty is greatly appreciated.

Just had a couple of questions. I will be visiting Medellin with 3 other Puerto Rican friends in November. We will be staying at am apartment we rented in El Poblado. What recommendations do you have in regards to restaurants, bars, clubs to go to. Also, what safety issues should we keep in mind while in the area. Thanks

Hey Jaime, thanks for the comment. If you’re staying in El Poblado, you’ll be fine hanging out in Parque Lleras, there are plenty of good restaurants (one of the best is Carmen), bars and clubs. I actually wrote a nightlife post that you might find helpful: My Medellin Nightlife. In regards to safety, El Poblado is one of the safest neighborhoods in Medellin, just don’t go taking taxi cabs to the barrio for late night “pick-ups” or walking home at 4:00 a.m., the $4,500 peso ride home is well worth it.

Muchas gracias por la informacion. Es nuestra primera vez en Medellin asi que estamos buscando lo mas informacion que podamos.

Uno nunca sabe… Tal vez nos encontremos de casualidad en uno de los bares/pubs pescando chicas ??

Are there any christian churches such as Pentecostal and Baptist churches in Middellin ? How many members & how many yous is attending ?

Just reading these comments and how you respond to them (especially negative ones) gives me a good sense of the kind of person you are. Your students must feel very lucky to have you.

I’m an EFL teacher myself (of 10+ years), with a web-based translation business on the side. Like you, I continue to do it because I love it and can’t give it up, even while other (more lucrative) things try to pull me away.

If you ever make it to Fukuoka, Japan, look me up and I’ll show you around.

Hi Caleb, thank you for your kind words and invitation. I most definitely will make my way to Japan, awesome to know someone over there. Likewise, if you’re ever in Medellin, hit me up!

Will do. Find me on fb or post another reply here if/when you do make it over here. ??

Soy Miguel se Seattle. Soy Chicano. I just returned from Medellin and Quilla for carnival and found the women in Colombia difficult to deal with or interact unless handled them with kid gloves. I’d actually like to connect via phone and discuss a second trip there but consider an agency to pre screen women who are looking for a serious relationship to someone from USA. Can you hit me up ?

Hola Miguel, yes, for the most part women way more feminine than those in the U.S. and more high maintenance. Which is why I love them. As for a dating agency, I’ve never used one, therefore, I don’t have any recommendations. I have, however, used and have had success and I also have friends who have found long term relationships (one who just got married). Regardless, if you’d like to chat, it’s no problem. Feel free to add me on Facebook.

Hey Andrew.I’m from California.I tried Colombian cupid.Got average responses.A dating expert told me,that only the average Colombian women use the site.And the top most beautiful women did not.Is that true? Recently I met a women,from Medellin.Shes smart,attractive,juiciosa,funny.I enjoy spending time with her.She recently had breast implants.Is that common in Medellin? She seems to be so concern about her body.I never met a women in USA,so concern about that.A few weeks ago,I found out that shes a cam girl model in Colombia.That really got me upset.A lot of perverts try to contact her.Being that you live in Medellin.Do you know women who work as cam girls? Cause this women,seems like a great person.Is just the cam thing,that bothers me.Even though she assure me,its only to pay for her studies.Not even her mom knows about it.Is this usual in Medellin? It bothers me,that all the perverts bother her all the time.Theres a lot of guys,interested in her.Shes use to being told how beautiful she is.But besides this,me cae bien.Any advice? knowing that you live in medellin for a while now.And know the way of life there.Should I keep seeing her? or should I find someone else?

Hi Phil, thanks for the comment. Let me answer your questions to the best of my abilities:

1. Not all Colombian women are on Colombian Cupid there are more than 20 million women in Colombia, therefore, not all are on there…or have even heard of the site.

2. Plastic surgery in Colombia is low cost (in comparison to the US and other countries) and the level of quality can be very good, hence, Colombia being a leader in plastic surgery and at the top of plastic surgery patients. Both men and women get stuff done here, so, yes, breast implants are common.

3. Yes I know a couple girls that are CAM girls. And yes, they do it for the money. They earn great money because they get paid in foreign currency.

4. My advice about seeing this girl…keep her as a friend. In my opinion it probably won’t get anywhere serious since you’re not living here. If you were living here in Medellin that would be different.

Thank you,I really appreciated.I’m planning to see her soon.It would be great to live there,if I can find a decent job.I know spanish.Being that I’m chicano.I need to see what kind of Visa is require.Heck,if Donald Trump becomes president,I’ll move right away.I’ll look you up,when I arrive in Medellin.So I can know everything I need to know about the city.Thank you very much.

Hi, Andrew! Any tips for a solo female traveler? Other than the things you would watch out for in any city, is there anything else to be aware of? The media often portrays Colombia as extremely dangerous for females–not being able to walk out into the street alone during the day, people robbing you at knifepoint, etc.

I don’t look like a tourist either. I’m Latina and speak Spanish (just not Colombian Spanish). Any advice?

Hi Katie, it’s really cool to see more female travelers, so kudos to you. As for advice…I’ve met a few solo female travelers and most have told me that they’ve made friends through conversation clubs, language exchanges and If you’re out here and need more guidance feel free to contact me.

Hello Andrew…many thanks for a very informative blog. I’m actually going to visit your town in middle October and your info has been very useful. As a single man, latino (peruvian born), I’ve come to believe that Colombian women have something so special that I want to explore it a bit. It won’t be my “mission in life” but I want to give it a whirl. I’m in my late 40s so why the hell not? Muchas gracias mi hermano…take care… David

David, thanks for the comment. I’m sure you’ll have a great time here. Good luck!

Hello Andrew. Thank you for the insightful information you have provided about your life experiences living in Medellin. Can you give input on living in other cities in Colombia? I have heard about some other cities in Colombia, that I would like to visit and spend time. Bogota(the capital, obviously), Villavicencio, Cali, and Bucaramanga. I was thinking of coming to Colombia to live for a bit or longer in the near future. Jobwise, I would look to do a computer job and teach English. Any input, dating and otherwise, would be greatly appreciated. I currently live in Miami, Florida and was raised here. Thank you in advance.

Xavier, I lived in Bogota for 6 months 5 years ago and it was great. Loads of things to do, restaurants, bars, nightlife, etc. I just didn’t like the rain and the cold and the traffic. As for the other cities, I’ve only visited them for a few days, so I don’t have much insight.

Andrew, just wanted to complement you for your blog. I just returned from Medellin last night. For years I heard about the women in Medellin so I finally decided to go and see what was all the fuss about. Let me tell you!! my buddy and I had the best two week vacation of a long time. We are from Southern California, we both speak Spanish so that was very helpful. The women and the people in Medellin are very social and very helpful. The beauty of their women was beyond my expectation. I have been to approximately 25 countries around the world but the GDP of beautiful women per capita in Medellin is off the chart. By talking to women I met I was able to tell that they are very open minded and things are a little bit different than in the US. I am writing about my own experience and these are my personal opinions. A lot of women have voluptuous natural curves and the ones that don’t, get plastic breast and butts. Though, I will have to better discribe them their butts as badankadonks. No bull. My advise to anyone going there with the intent to meet women there for a relationship, friendship or dating is to do the work before getting there. Get on a dating site to talk and meet people so that you are set once you get there. Establish friendship before getting there to maximize your opportunities!! the rest becomes natural. Now there are also a lots of prostitution in parque lleras but that’s not my style. For women plastic surgery is more important than getting a car or a motorcycle. Because they want to be attractive for their men. There are more women than men. You can get around the city with Uber it works great. You can get money from most ATMs make sure you let your bank know about it before you go. Bring a buddy all girls will set you up with their friends and you can share the hotel cost. Yes most foreigners are welcome, they are very curious to meet people from other countries even other Latin countries. Be safe, be courteous, and have fun.

hey nice write up, some of the best girls in the world can be found here

My name is Anthony, I come from France where I graduated from high school then I lived for about three years in San Diego, CA where I studied Social Sciences in community college. I’m currently planning my road trip in Colombia for next year, it’s gonna be a long trip (approximately 6 months) and obviously I want to see as much as possible of Colombia !

Therefore, I wanted to ask you, if you know some people who did wwoofing and maybe know some, who actually need some help somewhere in Medellin or anywhere else in Colombia ?

Plus, do you have any recommandations, like places to visit, restaurants in Medellin, Street arts, music festivals and more ? I really want to feel and be part of that culture !

PS: Thank you for your posting, and have a blessed day !

Hi Anthony, thanks for the comment. I don’t know anyone that has done Wwoofing, but you might want to try to reach out in the community. As for places to visit…there are a ton of places to visit, 6 months isn’t enough to see all of Colombia, but I highly recommend Bogota, Medellin, Cali, Cartagena, Santa Marta and Bucaramanga. Depending on the dates you’re visiting you can catch those places during festivals and it’s a ton of fun. For example Bogota has concerts and cultural events year round, but Medellin has the Flower Festival (Feria de las Flores) in August, Cali has their Feria de Cali in December, Cartagena has their own festivals in October as does Santa Marta. So you might want to plan you trip around festivals.

Yeah, your blog is always entertaining and interesting to read and then revisit at times… I travel quite often, working in Afghanistan with lots of time off in between tours but I have yet to travel through south America. Spanish is minimal, but throw me in the fire and i’ll make due.

Plan on visiting for the first time, maybe AirBnB a week here n there, for a total of a month or so to start this july 2017… Medellin, cali, etc.

My buddy from argentina says I look argentine but should get that gringo effect you mentioned with my gringo look with longer dark hair, obvious American accent. Dunno what im gonna do for shoes yet but im sure some pants like you have and some V-necks and I should be ok.

who knows, maybe i’ll run into ya. beers on me if that’s the case. several of my coworkers are married to brasilians, philipinos and Colombians so I wanna see what the rave is about… tired of texas girls lol

Thanks for the comment Jae, I’m glad you like Colombia.

Hello! What about the other way around? I’m a 21-year-old American girl who is blonde and white. I’m going to Colombia next month. Are Colombian guys as interested in American girls as Colombian girls are in American guys? Will being American work to my advantage or will it just make me stand out? Should I expect to be catcalled while I’m there because I look foreign (I’ve heard this is very common)?

Hi Nicole, thanks for the comment. That’s a great question. I have quite a few white, girl friends here. From the US and Europe and all of them have great luck here. They are seen as exotic…and sexy by guys here. Even the not so attractive ones get play. Just for their blond hair and white skin. A good person to reach out to is Eleni Cotsis, she’s a white girl with a Colombian boyfriend. She wrote a pretty good guest blog post about her experience here: This is her site: Here are a couple other great posts: and

As for the cat calls, yeah you’ll get cat called pretty much everywhere in the world, here is no exception. And like most places in the world you’ll get it to the most from middle to lower income level guys.

It seems you are still paying attention to this blog of yours and I take the opportunity to ventilate my roller-coaster feelings after writing a Colombian girl via hotmail. I don’t know what to think! Normally I am a quite suspicious person and I give notice to inconsistencies in a story that leads me to believe that bogus is going on. Maybe I can believe this girl or she is a master to deceive me and trick money out of me. So far what she tells me about herself is possible. It’s not unlikely, she is a girl from a much poorer country than I am. Some questions about financial support are reasonable.

1. I met her as a camgirl, yes I know, red alert, but wait. We came to talk a lot with each other in pvt, she was fully dressed all the time (but she did a good show for me some days earlier). She told me she felt dirty, used and disgusted to be there and her mother disliked it. She is 24 years and lives with her parents. She needed money for her college studies and couldn’t find any other way to get it. Many Colombian girls are doing that, she said. Yes, that seems to be true, many write that in their bios. She wanted to quit the site within the next two days, it was pure coincidence I was there before she checked out.

2. I gave her my mail address, she didn’t ask for it. I never thought she would write. She did. We have exchanged about 25 mails each since.

3. She sent (non-nude) photos of herself to prove that she was the one I saw on the cam site. Yes, it’s the same person.

4. She doesn’t speak English, I cannot speak Spanish. I offered her to learn English if I pay her, asked her to find an institute and show me the costs. When I recently got angry at her for asking for money, she pointed out to me that I was the one offering her to go to English classes, not her. She is right about that. She showed me an institute and it was about 85 dollars a month.

5. Already during the webcam chat she mentioned her father was diagnosed with cancer and the medication and the treatment was very expensive. She did not expressively ask for money, but it was a difficult financial situation. Then her father got a heart attack. She made selfies with herself in the intensive care station with a man in the bed behind. You could clearly see that she’d spent a long time crying, her eyes looked terrible.

6. She needs to go to an internet cafe all the time, we would be able to be so much closer if I bought a computer for her – okay, I have heard this story many times. She sent a picture of what she wanted, 1800 dollars, I said the computers I buy here are maybe 500 dollars and are perfectly okay for internet and chatting. I never bought that computer. I will never do that. She does not insist, but now and then returns to the fact that it would be so much easier to chat.

7. I have agreed to send her 120 dollars every month to finance the English class and give some extra, two payments so far. She has not started yet, I didn’t expect it to happen so quick, that’s fine. Recently she wrote about all the trouble she goes through at home with fighting parents, her siblings want her to pay everything for her parents as she is the child living at home. She cannot stand the unrest and will rent a small room somewhere else. That will increase her spending and my monthly support will not be sufficient for English class and an own living. Okay, could be true.

8. To be able to send her money by bank wire the Colombian bank required her personal data, full name, birth date and address. She hesitated for several mails to give it to me. She said I could spread pictures of her from her webcam period, send them to the address, and her life would be destroyed for ever. No employer would employ a person with nude pictures spread all around over the net. (I found some of her on the net, by her webcam alias name, which is the same she uses for hotmail, I did not spread them.) I got her full name, full address and birth date, and she received the money. Because of the huge fees she wants me to use Western Union next time.

9. She writes long mails, up to 4 pages, run through a translator. She has looked up info regarding my country, read about the history, the culture, looked at fotos, commented on it as any girl who wants to learn about a new country. It impressed me. She never talks about partying, discos, clubs, dancing, evening with friends, etc. So far just sad stories about her father’s health and she has to take care of her niece.

10. I feel some kind of love for her. The love an older single Western guy will feel for a much younger poor girl from a poorer country. I tried to arrange to see her. But the air fares are too high. She has not really asked for money to see me. I have tried to go myself, but it will not be possible. We agreed she needs to learn English first.

11. I wrote her a really angry mail the other day, bringing up all I heard about cheating, gold digging, that she claims to love me, but it is just because I send her money. I expected she would be very angry and say I could go to hell, or that she would not reply at all, I offered her to go away and leave me in peace if my accusations were true. No, she replied in a long very sad mail, that she understands me, when she puts herself in my situation she can very well understand that I suspect her to be fake, but it is not true, and if I decide to cancel the relationship she would accept it, though she would miss me.

12. I couldn’t. She could have written so many other stuff that would have prevented me from going on.

13. She said all the recent costs for her parents, her new rental room, an accident on a motor bike (she sent a picture of her bruised leg), has created a situation where there is not enough money to pay her college fee end of July. She said she hated to bring up this subject again with me, as I was so against her talking about money, but she had no other person to ask. I said I would give it to her, 180 dollars, but I deduct the surplus from the next two month’s of support, she will then get 30 dollars less. She wrote literally that this is the last time she will be asking for money. I will remind her of it if she asks again, be sure.

I understand that a girl from the Pereira area, who is very young, who seems to have high goals to get out of her miserable situation by working hard, studying hard, not meeting a Colombian guy who makes her pregnant (which happened to her sisters), is interested in a Westerner (European) with quite other financial means, and who is much older. She has no problems that I am much older, and I have no problems that she is much younger. There is an age difference of 30 years. I never had a relationship and she had her last one three years ago where she lost a child in the fourth month. We get along very well by mail, we share a lot of values (which surprises me), she is not childish, not stupid, not a party-goer, she wants to learn to swim, dance, skate, just to get away from her fighting parents at home. We discussed a future together but we came both, not just me, to the conclusion that it is probably not possible, the language, cultural and climate barriers are too high. We decided to go on as a bit more than friends on the mail and see what happens in the long run. She will make her exam in psychology within 2 years. Before that nothing will happen.

Am I getting robbed here or not, Andrew? I cannot tell. It can be either way. Is it possible that she is just a liar, that she is instead on another cam site, that she writes this way to many other stupid Americans or Europeans (but four pages each to everyone every night?). Or is it true that she wanted the contact with me because I treated her so good already in the webcam chat room, and I was so understanding and encouraging?

I understand that Colombianas look different on older men than Western girls do. That my secure financial situation and higher social status makes me attractive. And probably she has learned that Westerners have nothing against falling in love with much younger and good-looking girls from the Latina area. All relationships include hard facts, even from girls in my own country. A poor guy cannot get a rich girl. A very ugly guy cannot get a good-looking girl even if he has a fortune (up to a limit).

Is it really possible that she is so advanced that she fakes her name, address and birth name (by using a friend’s) to withdraw money from the bank? Is all a friend’s account? Is it possible that she sends fake selfies of herself with a man in the hospital in the background who is not her father? I knew about her father’s problems before we started mailing. Why go through so much trouble to break into a hospital and make fake pictures?

If she is not making more than 190 dollars a month in the dentist office, and she needs to support her parents, as she says, and she needs to pay the medical bills for her father and his medication, and she needs to pay for her college studies – and if she does not want to be a camgirl anymore (she hasn’t been online on the camsite where she used to be) because she feels dirty and used and her mother dislikes it – of course I understand that she is short of money. If I can make her life somewhat lighter by sending a relatively small amount every month, why not? I have asked her several times not to lie to me, to tell me the truth. Okay, you can say whatever, but the length, the complexity, her interest in me and my country, makes me unsure whether it is fake or not. Is it true everlasting love? Maybe not.

What do you think, Andrew? I am running through nightmares certain days, and other days I feel happy that someone is writing me every night and give me a lot of passion. She has my real name and my real address but nevertheless I would feel free to break up from one day to the next – but I need to be able to point out something with makes me want to discontinue. I haven’t found that yet. Can someone really be that advanced, to fake 25 mails, get the story to hold together, still being passionate about me? I would not write to you if these requests for computer and money didn’t come up now and then. Is there any proof she can send to me that she is who she says? Pictures are correct. Is the name correct? Sometimes I am afraid I am a fool.

Charles, thanks for sharing. I’ll give you my opinion here. It doesn’t sound like she’s trying to scam you. But you should be careful because even though people here (or anywhere in the world) are genuinely nice, circumstances will make them do bad things. Her situation has her backed into a wall (at least she doesn’t have a kid) and sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures, even if it means she has to lie to you about her feelings for you.

I’m an optimist though and I’m trying to give her the benefit of the doubt.

So the first thing I would do is ask her if she has a facebook account. This email thing isn’t a good filter. If she doesn’t have a facebook account then there’s something wrong. Almost everyone in Colombian has one. On facebook you can see her real pictures, friends, activities, etc.

Second, don’t go spending too much money on her. You’re already giving her $120 US a month, that’s enough.

Third, you need to make a plan and set a date to come visit her. If there’s no actual date, then all of this is not real and you’re just sending money to a cam girl.

I really hope that everything works out. Please keep me informed on what happens.

Thanks for commenting. I am a bit surprised that you are so optimistic. I say statistics are against me – should I belong to the 0,5% of all guys in the world that manage to save an ex-camming girl from a miserable circumstances and bring her out to a decent job and a decent life? It’s more likely that I am deceived.

In my desperation I wrote another blog dealing with unfaithful Colombian girls. My questions were made a blogpost during the last night, and all comments say that I am dealing with a full-time prostitute, who was so good at camming because she was already before a prostitute. There are numerous stories that resembles mine, going to work to pay for college fees is to say that she works in a local brothel. On that site nobody is positive at all.

In court I would have to confess, though, that I cannot find an obvious lie in what this girl wrote so far. Just her previous life is against her and the numerous stories about the same procedure.

If I find a lie I will cancel her immediately. So far the financial bit is bothering me and yesterday I told her I cannot support her. Silence this morning. Let’s see if she writes again.

Still, I cannot understand why someone goes through so much effort, to write day in and day out, for so little money. She has never explicitly asked for money until these last 180 dollars. She has asked for a computer several times, that’s all.

If she’s a local prostitute why just accept two or three more customers and she gets more than I gave her?

Still there are pros and cons. But nobody but you are really sending me optimistic comments.

Charles, I’m curious to know how this has panned out. If you don’t mind sharing, let us know what has happened. I truly do hope it has gone well for you. Cheers.

Hello Charles and Andrew. I am in a similar situation. But there are key differences (I think).

She has a son from a previous relationship. I have a daughter from my previous marriage. She never asked for money directly. I have sent her USD$1000 so far to help her, her son and family, no strings attached. I have her address and also copies of her identification documents (among other things). Within a short period of time talking we both agreed to be in a Long Distance Relationship. Our status (both of us) on Facebook reflect this. She has asked me stay with her when I come to Colombia (trying to make it happen in 2017). I have spoken to other ‘friends’ in Colombia and they agree she seems legit. BTW I’m 18 years older than she is.

Andrew, sorry for not replying to you earlier. I have been on vacation and was happy not to have any computer with me.

I still have contact with this girl! I cannot find anything wrong with her. I need to find proof that she is lying or giving an inconsistent story in order for me to get angry enough to close down the contact. Everything she says is perfectly possible! We have exchanged more than 50 mails by now.

I questioned her real hard about her identity. She was sad and angry with me as I never seemed to believe anything she said. She sent a copy of her Colombian id card (I checked others on the net, it is no fake), she sent the id card from her university and her job. All have the same name, the photo on the id-cards correspond to the girl I saw on cam. Her name corresponds to the owner of the bank account. I’ve done more than US Customs to verify her. Therefore I know who she is, her full name, her home address, her work address, her birth date, her bank account number and she even sent me her password to access the internet bank, but I did not use it. So she is the one she claims to be.

She has asked me for money twice, last time she says it was her last request. I will bring it up if she asks again. In total 400 USD. She doesn’t require to come to me, she doesn’t require me to come to Colombia. We still want to meet but she needs to learn English first. When we meet it will be in a neutral place, probably Spain. Although she was a camgirl we never ever talk about sex, we never exchange erotic pictures, it’s a topic we never discuss.

I am still in a state of more than friendship. But I don’t think love will last to the point when she graduates and is able to move to my country (maybe in 4 years). I went through mental hell after reading all stories about cheating Colombianas. I am still skeptical, I am still looking for errors. But I don’t find any. Let’s say all this is not fake, all is real. How could I abandon a nice girl who writes so compassionate and encouraging mails to me just because other Colombian camgirls have been cheaters? I seem to mean a lot to her being nice. She helps me a lot, like no other female contact I ever had, overcoming my bad self-esteem. She teaches me to be positive, tricks to become a happier person (she studies psychology, it shows). Not even my closest friends since childhood have been so helpful and understanding. And I should regard her as a hooker? I cannot.

So, yes, everything could still be romance scam, although I don’t understand why someone will go through so much to keep me. There is an enormous age difference, still we talk and feel the same. It’s crazy. I can very well imagine that she likes an older Western guy with more money who will bring her a better social status. But so – does not every girl want that? And is not an older Western girl very pleased to have a young girlfriend who gives him status and who brings joy?

I cannot break before I have a reason. I am most likely not speaking to my future wife. But I like her a lot.

Get a job man. These losers here believe your crap especially ones from Europe

Hi Mark, firstly, I do have a job, well I run a business here in Medellin. Secondly, I’m sorry you feel that way, I’m just writing my experiences here, not trying to convince anyone of anything, I think it’s pretty evident in the tone I set when I write. Regardless, I appreciate the criticism and will work on making my tone of writing more clear.

Have you ever considered making a blog post or a guide on training oneself to respond to venom with compassion? It’s something you are skilled at, and it would be super-valuable if you could help others develop the same skill.

Doubly so if you have this same ability in your offline interactions.

Thanks Caleb. I don’t think people are trying to be venomous, I just think they don’t know me and are just taking a snap reaction and running with.

I guess I just give people the benefit of the doubt at all times. It’s not easy to live life this way. I have zero enemies, great friends and can honestly say that I’m very happy.

I’m glad you can maintain this attitude offline as well. Always assuming the best of others generally pays off in the long run.

Haha, you’re right, I avoided the question. I think writing something along those lines would take a lot of a time and research. I’ll have to start working on it. What about you? How do you handle negativity?

Well, sometimes it’s hard for me, to be honest. But I find imaginative thought experiments help me to give people the benefit of the doubt.

For example, if someone cuts me off in traffic, I can think to myself, “That person didn’t see me. He must be distracted by something. Maybe something bad happened in his life very recently. I hope he is OK.” This helps me feel compassion for him instead of being angry with him. If I do this again and again, it begins to become second nature. But it requires vigilance and persistence, and I must admit that sometimes I let my guard down and forget, and then become irritated (and react like a typical irritated person would). Both online and off.

Compassion, like many qualities people incorrectly assume to be ingrained and present from birth, is a learned skill, and like any skill it requires practice practice practice to be good at it.

From reading your replies to many posters to your blog (not just the one above), I can easily see that you have developed this skill. Did you develop it consciously and deliberately? Or was it gradually taught to you as you grew up? If the former, then you have a lot of valuable things to say on the subject, and I for one would love to read them; hence my suggestion. If the latter, then perhaps your parents should start writing a blog. ??

Hola, no se como termine en este blog! Al ver el titulo me esperaba una chorrada acerca de el prototipo de las mujeres paisas, pero he encontrado una interpretacion personal muy respetuosa y divertida, seguramente de gran interes para otros chicos extranjeros… Me causo mucha risa tu comentario acerca de que los colombianos estamos obsesionados con los dientes lol, si que es cierto! Vivi en el extranjero y cuando despues de almorzar me veian en el bano cepillandome los dientes las chicas se quedaban como wtf, que exagerada! Saludos. PD. Soy de Bogota

Jennifer, gracias. Si, es verdad, muchos hombres de otros paises vienen a Colombia por que creen que pueden golear con las mujeres, pero la realidad es que si un hombre tiene inseguridades, no importa donde este siempre le ira mal. Ya despues de 7 anos de vivir en Medellin creia que tenia una percepcion buena de las mujeres paisas…pero siempre me sorprenden y me dan ha realizar que no se nada de mujeres, jaja. Lo unico que se es que si soy buena persona, honesta, educada, trabajadora, deportista, me va bien. En que parte de Bogota vives? Yo vivi en Suba, por el Exito por 6 meses.

Hola, gracias por la respuesta. Te cuento que yo tambien vivi en Suba detras del Exito, pero ahora estoy por Villas de Granada. Sabes, me gustaria saber tu opinion sobre esto; Conoci un chico por tinder hace tres meses, pero nunca nos vimos personalmente, durante este tiempo hemos venido hablando con mucho feeling y el decidio venir a verme, llega en 20 dias. El plan es que llega a Bogota y de ahi nos vamos a San Andres pero me ha sorprendido pidiendome que paguemos mitad y mitad el hotel mitad y mitad (hahahah) osea esto nunca me habia pasado… Como puedo abordar esto, o como le digo que simplemente no me parece que me este poniendo a pagar… osea no se como sera en Europa, pero eso aqui es una boleta. Que opinas?

The problem with foreigners in Colombia is they always resort to what has worked for them in the past, via instinct. I havnt paid for sex (besides paying for drinks and dinner) and i’ve hooked up with a couple video vixens, a few models, and the rest are simply gorgeous home grown girls that are tired of the stereotypical local.

I speak very little spanish, and my charm has been 95% through smiles and the Google Translate app. Still, i do well. I make it a point to speak clear and loud english in a locals only discoteca and the attention is instantly on me like i’m famous or something. I use that to my advantage.

That’s all that needs to be done. Simply be somewhat groomed, confident, and willing to push your own bounderies. I’m super gringo and i capitalize on the “exotic” factor.

I’ve picked up girls in Parque Lleras with flip flops and a basketball jersey on, but I quickly say hello and how are you in English and I wait for the confused look and then say it in Spanish and then I say (in spanish) sorry but my Spanish is very new and bad. I then either ask tienes whatsapp or simply pull out my own phone and type up a quick message or have a preloaded message about what are you doing today using my translator app, and then my foot is on the door for more.

Btw, use tinder and (especially) if youre from the US and english only, state that in your profile and keep it simple.

There are several girls that I would consider dating long time here… of course that’s easier when they all look like your dream girl : )

Hey Justin, I’m not sure if your really understood my comment hahaha… but thank you anyway ??

Hey Andrew, going to be traveling to Medellin from Dec22-Dec29, and I even contemplated NYE. What’s your thoughts on this time frame? I’ve heard mixed reviews about the Holiday season.

Also, I barellllllllyyyyy speak any spanish. I’ll definitely refresh on some common things/terms, but we’ll see how that goes. Total time in Colombia will be from Dec22-Jan7. I’m pretty savvy here in the US, and I’ve been very fortunate in my travels across Europe and Asia. I like a mix of the local fun and also some expat fun as well.

I have been thinking of going to Columbia for a long time, Usually, I spend the cold-Canadian winters in Cuba. However, I have decided to branch out. This year, I feel that I will take the plunge. My only question is: how dangerous is Columbia, or is it dangerous and the hype is just that – hype? No pienso que tendre problemas con la idioma. Mi preocupacion, sin embargo, es el seguirdad. Estoy preocupando por nada. Thanks.

Colombia is as dangerous as you make it to be. If you’re looking for drugs and prostitutes, you’re bound to get into trouble just like anywhere else in the world. I’ve been here 7 years, and have yet to be mugged, pickpocketed, or burglarized. Furthermore, I’ve lived in 7 different neighborhoods, including downtown, where I stayed for a year and a half.
