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! This is a big plus for me here because I’m naturally outgoing and funny, so I can really be myself when speaking Spanish.
At first glance Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
So I do not have that instant “gringo effect” on them.
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.
The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin.
