Having lived in Colombia now for well over a decade I have a fair amount of experience dating Colombian women. The following is my impression of Colombian girls that I have formed over many years of living here from numerous dates and also a couple of serious relationships. It is difficult to generalise when it comes to describing Colombian girls physically since Colombia is such a racially diverse country.
In the coastal regions, for example, the majority of the people are of black descent, whereas in the area around Medellin and the coffee region the population is much whiter.
In parts of central and southern Colombia many people come from an indigenous background.
One physical characteristic which is common to the vast majority of Colombian women is that they tend to be much shorter than women in North America or Europe. One thing I can guarantee is that in pretty much any Colombian town or city you will see beautiful Colombian girls.
In Colombian culture an age difference of more or less 15 -25 years is normal.
Standard Spanish has a load of different ways to say somebody (or something) is beautiful or attractive.It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single girl in possession of a job in Colombia must be in want of a date. Ostensibly a bar for foreigners to participate in a language exchange with Colombians, and actually a great way to make friends, after about 9pm it morphs into a free-for-all speed dating service between gringos and locals.All across the city of Bogotá, and indeed the rest of the country, gringa girls living and working in Colombia are pairing up with local boys – at a staggering rate! Ask anyone about it, go and check it out, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.But not only are Colombian women beautiful, they can also be incredibly flirtatious.Many Colombian women enjoy being the object of admiring stares in the street, although most resent the hissing and wolf-whistling which Colombian men can sometimes be prone to.They were friendly, kind, sweet, generous, sincere and in many cases overwhelmingly beautiful. You can find pretty much any type of woman (and man) in Colombia just as you can in other parts of the world.And nowhere in South America is this truer than for Colombian girls. There are some big cultural differences that exist between the typical European or North American woman and Colombian women. But being aware of some of the trends and characteristics that apply to Colombian women and the dating scene in Colombia may prove invaluable if you’re looking for some Latin romance.But most of these are far too serious-sounding to be used when chatting among your friends.Fast track from dull ‘textbook Spanish’ to sounding like a native with my Colombian Spanish Language Hacks email course.As I mentioned in my last article, male-female platonic friendships are considered far less common, particularly if the pair in question are single.So, even while you’re not in a relationship with someone just because you went on a date, it’s important to know that going for a casual drink with a guy would be considered a date in Colombia.
