I have been dating Colombian women for over 8 years now.
I have found that Medellin women, as in most parts of the world, love compliments and like it when a guy can make them laugh.
So Spanish has been essential for me here in Medellin. Socially, women are a little different than the southern California women I was used to meeting.
I had to learn everything from experience, and it’s been a blast.
Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before.
I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.
