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.
The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin.
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.
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.
It is not usual for women in Medellin to go out by themselves just to let loose.
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.
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.
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! Regarldess, I look on the bright side and see this as an advantage.
