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.Hot Medellin girls are not the sole reason for this rise in tourism to “The City of Eternal Spring”, but it is definitely up there.I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism in Colombia and I am aware that there are many strip clubs, and brothels in Medellin.Strippers and hookers are not the type of girls that I date, so I will not be referring to that in this post. My situation is a little different than most foreigners here in Colombia.I am actually Colombian, my family is Colombian, and more importantly (aside from my height, 6’2″) I look Colombian.It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner.
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 have been living in Medellin for over 5 years now.
When I first arrived here, there wasn’t yet a complete guide to dating paisa women.
I had to learn everything from experience, and it’s been a blast.
Medellin women are beautiful, and the word is spreading pretty much around the world. Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before.
