Most of my close friends here in Medellin are foreigners and I have seen girls break their neck checking them out as we walk down the street.
So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.
At first glance Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
So I do not have that instant “gringo effect” on them.
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! This is a big plus for me here because I’m naturally outgoing and funny, so I can really be myself when speaking Spanish.
