I was hoping I’d never have to write one of these, but due to the increase in nasty comments earlier this year on a famous (infamous?) story published three years ago, I felt the need to write something that better sums up the whole of women in this growing city, not just one segment of the population.For that reason you won’t read anything in this story that stereotypes the women here, nothing that says they’re all bossy or jealous, even though they are traits you might find in some of them.
Women are typically there to dance to music that does not encourage them to grind with you, as reggaeton does. Or maybe try going to the theater or other cultural events.
My friend Tatiana, the pretty and popular receptionist at The Wandering Paisa, met her boyfriend while she was waiting to see a play. You can’t really expect a woman to be on time in Colombia.

There is no one way to woo one of them, because of all the variables. During my time in the states, more often than not, Ryan + attempt to talk to a woman at nightclub = rejection.
I’m simply going to tell you some of my experiences in nearly three years living here, as well as information I’ve gathered from friends, both Colombian and foreign, men and women, and then you can decide what you want to do with it. I’m not saying it can’t happen, I’m just saying it’s less likely. Now that I think about it, it’s not all that different here. Other people have had success with online dating sites.
If you are planning to meet a woman at a club, a salsa club is probably the best kind of venue. My favorite avenue is through mutual friends, a situation that makes me feel most comfortable.
