I’ve been in a relationship with a Colombian girl for about 6 months now. I decided to travel to Bogota determined just to stay single as long as possible, since I planned on travelling a lot. ’ (obviously now the questions come from friends back home, or people online before they head for a Colombia vacation).
Time and time again I was told, ‘it won’t be long now’, or ‘everyone gets one in the end’, but I never saw it happening to me. Still I deal with the preoccupation of people with Colombian girlfriends. The truth is, in my experience, there’s not so much difference.
They like to go out to eat in groups or go dancing in groups instead of going out as a couple.
This has a lot to do that Colombian women feel safer if they go out in small groups or at least with her best friend.
Often has it been said that the best way to improve in a foreign tongue is to start dating a local. Even students who, in the classroom, can barely be bothered to string together a coherent sentence, suddenly have boundless enthusiasm for improving their language skills as soon as they chat to a guy or girl they like.
To excel in the world of romance, you’ll need to be able to speak reasonably.
My friends, however, will often report to the contrary, stating that in varying ways Colombian girls are very different to those back home.
I’m reluctant to make any sweeping generalisations about the fairer sex in Colombia and put most of it down to the fact that people are very similar in most cultures, but as a foreigner you only peak into certain aspects of the culture and, moreover, tend to attribute aspects of the culture you experience to the culture in general, when it can easily just be one person’s tick.Sign up now for 7 days of expert tips that will instantly transform your Spanish!Well, you better not leave without first signing up for my FREE email course to the best of Colombia's Spanish and slang.Family Values Colombia is more conservative as a whole than North American is due to the fact that it is mainly a Roman Catholic country.Family is the most important of all things in this large country.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.
