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.
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.
A certain amount of negligence after making an impression piques a woman’s interest, it is the whole psychological framework of the type of women who wants a strong man (check out this great article on Psychology Today by Gina Barreca, Ph.
D.) I started to read about this subject back in high school.
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.
