The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from some girls here in Medellin.
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.I speak Spanish fluently; therefore, I can’t play the “…no jaaabl0 Españoler mucho bueno. I’m naturally outgoing and funny, so I can really be myself when speaking Spanish.More often than not I’m not even interested in talking to the girl; I just want to dance and have fun.

My situation is a little different than most foreigners here in Colombia.Medellin women are beautiful, and word is spreading pretty much around the world. I have been dating Colombian women for over 6 years now.
