The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from some 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.
Do not even get me started on the gym, it is almost like a circus sideshow in there.
Seeing beautiful women here is so common that Colombian men don’t even turn to look, it’s ridiculous.
Penetrating that group of friends, playing “the game” in order to get to your “target girl” is hard work, and sometimes does not work if you don’t speak Spanish well enough for her to understand.
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.
On the street, I am usually attracted to women who look as if they are on their way to an office job.Here in Medellin, you do NOT need to play that game.Medellin nightclubs are for dancing, so it’s very easy to go up to a woman in a noisy disco, put out your hand, gesture for her to take it, and start dancing.Typically, very beautiful girls in Medellin will go to a bar or a nightclub in a group, and there will be guys in that group usually.For an emasculated man from the United States, this is a nightmare.At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
