Colombia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, thanks to its eclectic culture, it’s warm climate, the historic architecture, and of course, its unique landscape as well. But perhaps the least mentioned asset in Colombia is the country’s beautiful women. Many single guys who travel to Colombia do so to not only explore the tourist attractions in the country, but to also appreciate the beauty and fiery spirit of its women, not to mention their unique personalities! So if you’re a single bloke who’s thinking of traveling to Colombia and are wondering how to bag a Colombian girl, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ll teach you how to woo a Colombian girl’s heart with tips that we’ve sourced from a few experts on the topic. Read on for more.
Tip One: Know what you want
This rule is the foundation of any relationship. It’s important to know what you want before you start any kind of relationship with women, because then you’ll be able to state your terms clearly from the beginning to avoid any misunderstanding or disappointments down the road. While tastes differ, it is often advised to refrain from basing a relationship on fleeting qualities like external beauty or sexiness, unless you’re just looking for something casual. However, if you want to win a Colombian woman’s heart –or any woman’s heart for that matter- then you should look at more significant qualities like her background and her personality. You want to be with someone whose personality you enjoy, and if you wish to start a family, then you’ll also want to be with someone that shares the same values as you do.
That said, it’s always a good idea to state your intentions early on in the relationship when dealing with a Colombian woman. While most Colombian women are beautiful, compassionate and quick-witted, there are those who are also gold diggers, so you have to decide early on which of these two options is more attractive to you.
Tip Two: Attractive features
Colombian women are known to be very charming and open to foreigners, regardless of their nationality. They have a certain unique beauty and elegance which can be found only in women from tropical regions. From the way they dance, to the colorful way in which they dress, and the diversity of their looks -which is influenced by Spanish-African ancestry-Colombian women are incredibly unique and one of a kind.
Tip Three: Dating Methods
The quality of the woman you find in Colombia often depends on where you look. Dating websites can be misleading and while they contain all kinds of women, some of them prey on unsuspecting foreigners and are definitely not what they appear. That said, there are well-meaning, beautiful, self-made and intelligent women on these websites, and some of the best and most popular and legit Colombian dating sites to check out include Colombian Cupid, Latin America Cupid and Badoo.
When you sign up for Colombian Cupid’s Premium membership, you’ll have access to its database of over 250 000 users, audio/ video chat capability, and a really user friendly interface. On the other hand, Latin America Cupid is one of the biggest dating sites in Latin American, with over 3 million users, and it comes with interesting features like in-built translation tools, easy sign-up and detailed searches, as well as audio/ video and IM chat. Lastly, Badoo has a hip, fresh and young vibe, with an easy-to use interface and sign-up process, as well as the convenient Badoo user app.
On these sites, you can meet Colombian singles from all over the country, most of whom are very open minded and interesting. Meeting someone through these platforms will give you the opportunity to evaluate their personality from a safe distance, and you’ll be able to tell if they’re really interested in your personality or just your money. For example, if you connect with a Colombian girl and she keeps hinting that she wants money or a visa, then you’ll know that she’s not for you, and all before you commit to her in any real way. Also, if you find a girl that you’re able to hold a real conversation with, and you come to like her in the process, then you can take it to the next level knowing that your relationship won’t just be a financial transaction for her.
Tip Four: Learn to dance
Colombian women are greatly attracted to men who can dance, and she’ll be even more impressed if you can Salsa! This is a fairly simple dance that’s easy enough to learn when you’re young, but it might prove difficult to learn when you’re older, especially if you’re one those people with two left feet. But, don’t despair, once you’ve got the basic steps down, you’ll be well on your way to stealing hearts on the dance floor in no time. The trick to learning Salsa dancing fast is to just follow the beat of the song and keep your lady love close to your torso the whole time. To Latinas, dancing is an integral part of the culture as well as the seduction game, and the most important thing is to enjoy yourself while you dance, regardless of how good or bad you are. She’ll appreciate your confidence and positive attitude more than your actual dancing skills, and because you’re a foreigner, your dancing skills won’t be placed under scrutiny or judgement as though you were a native.
Just partake in the dancing and have fun while you’re at it, because there’s nothing more repelling to a Colombian woman than a guy who just wants to sit by the bar drinking all night, while she dances the night way on her own. She’ll want to share her joy of dancing with you, and if you have an easy going personality and allow yourself to enjoy the dancing with her, you’ll both have fun and she’ll be more attracted to you at the end of the night.
Tip Five: No talking on the dance floor
While it’s okay to slip in a few colloquialisms like ‘Muy bonita!’ or ‘Ueepa!’ it’s best to keep the chit-chat to an absolute minimum when you’re on the dance floor. Save the deep conversation about your awesome job or favourite hobbies for a formal dinner date setting, and just let loose and enjoy yourself in the meantime. She’ll understand your body language better anyway.
Tip Six: Drink responsibly
It’s only natural to drink on a night out to release tension and break the ice, but there is a certain drink that you should look out for in particular when in Colombia, and it’s called Aguardiente. This is a very powerful and extremely intoxicating alcoholic drink and although it’s made from sugar cane, it has a very pungent flavour that makes it almost taste like antiseptic, if you can imagine that.
The interesting thing about the Aguardiente drink is that it’s actually considered to be the country’s national drink, which makes it widely available and most girls do drink it. As a foreigner, you’ll have to limit your intake because it is very strong, but do it in a way that doesn’t spoil your girl’s fun. A good tip would be to drink no more than three of these shots of Aguardiente, and each time you take a shot, follow it up with a glass of water so that you get all its benefits without the side effects, which include an unusually massive hangover headache the next day. Also, move around a lot by dancing and eat something before you go to bed to minimize the negative effects.
On the upside, the advantages of drinking Aguardiente include a feeling of unexplainable joy and an urge to just smile and just be happy. So, try it out and don’t be a spoil sport.
Tip Seven: Compliment her character and attractive looks
As with most women, Latinas like being complimented on their looks and their personality, and a toothy smile is always a good indication that she finds your company pleasant as well. However, the secret to giving a good compliment is to be authentic. Don’t rush it or feel pressured, and rather focus on getting to know her so that you can learn all about her good qualities, instead of showering her with fake compliments because you think it’s what she wants to hear.
It’s also important to understand that a Colombian girl’s perception of intimacy might be different than what you’re used to. Don’t confuse her close body language and physical intimacy for flirtation or a sign that you should take it to ‘third base’, as pursuing her in that way too early can turn things sour real quick.
Step Eight: Keep your hygiene game strong
Little do most people know that Colombians in general are quite OCD about good hygiene, and most Colombian girls have a keen sense of smell, so they can tell if someone hasn’t showered for the day. If you find it okay to not shower on certain days, then all the charm and cash in the world won’t help you bag a Colombian girl. People in Colombia shower at least once or twice per day, and they take grooming and dress very seriously, so you should also pay attention to the way you dress and take time to put yourself together well every day. Shower, shave, put on some fragrant (not pungent) aftershave, cologne, wear ironed clothes, clean shoes -polished if need be- and put your outfits together in a way that makes you walk with pride. There’s nothing more attractive to a Colombian woman than a man who is well-groomed, smells good and is confident in himself.
Best Cities to Meet Girls in Colombia
1. Bogota– According to our sources, Bogota is not only the capital of Colombia but it’s also the capital of the hottest Colombian girls. The population of this city is in the millions, and the girls here come in all manner of personalities, skin tones and body shapes. Plus, Bogota has a wider variety and diversity of women to choose from when compared to other cities because as the capital, the city attracts women from all the different regions of the country.
2. Cali- Also known as ‘Calenas’, girls from Cali are known for their love of plastic surgery and cosmetic augmentations, so it’s the place to go if you don’t mind women with fake boobs and an otherwise cosmetically altered appearance. That said, Cali is often rated second or third after Bogota and Medellin when it comes to having the most beautiful women in the country, but it is also one of the most dangerous cities in the world so you’ll have to keep that in mind if you decide to go there and try to keep a low profile as much as you can.
3. Medellin– Some of the most defining features about Medellin girls is their distinct hourglass shape, and stunning facial features. Most girls in Medellin are also quite light skinned and there’s not as much variety in this city as you would find in Bogota, but you can still find a lot of gorgeous single women in Medellin that are willing to date a foreigner.
