Pros and cons of dating coworkers
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.
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. Socially, women are a little different than the southern California women I was used to picking up.
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.
