At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.

Generally, these women will be dressed and fashionable.

I can tell they are going to work because normally they will have a badge around their neck or pinned to their shirt or pants.

Every day I see gorgeous women walking up and down the street.

I go to the supermarket and I see beautiful women, I go get my hair cut and there’s a breathtaking woman, I go eat lunch and I see an amazingly attractive woman.

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.

This has proven to be essential for me when picking up women in Medellin. Socially, women are a little different than the southern California women I was used to picking up.

It is not usual for women in Medellin to go out by themselves just to let loose.

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! Regarldess, I look on the bright side and see this as an advantage.
