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.

There are thousands of new and fresh Filipina brides who migrated to the US every year. Filipina women are proud of themselves to get married with White husbands.

Their parents are proud of themselves to have White son-in-laws.

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.

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.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 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.Gone is the days that people go to clubs or bars to find short term dates, online dating is the solution to meet your life mate. Many Filipino American personals have to use online dating sites to find their second half. Many Filipino-born ladies don't understand about life in America.
