Here in Medellin, you do NOT need to play that game.
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.
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.
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.
The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin.
