The “gringo effect” is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin.

It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner.

I’ve been here 5 years and I’m still floored at some of the women in my gym!

On the street, I am usually attracted to women who look as if they are on their way to an office job.

I had to learn everything from experience, and it’s been a blast.

Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before.

Every day I see gorgeous women walking up and down the street.

I go to the supermarket and I see beautiful women, I go get my hair cut and there’s a breathtaking woman, I go eat lunch and I see an amazingly attractive woman.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.More often than not I’m not even interested in talking to the girl; I just want to dance and have fun. Amazingly, when I do that, women are more attracted than when I start talking to them while dancing.
