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.

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.

Do not even get me started on the gym, it is almost like a circus sideshow in there.

Seeing beautiful women here is so common that Colombian men don’t even turn to look, it’s ridiculous.

I am actually Colombian, my family is Colombian, and more importantly (aside from my height, 6’2″) I look Colombian.

I have lived my entire life, barring the past 5 years of course, in Southern California.

More often than not I’m not even interested in talking to the girl; I just want to dance and have fun. Amazingly, when I do that, women are more attracted than when I start talking to them while dancing.
