Dating in colombian culture
In Colombia a girl's 15th birthday is considered an important milestone.
When I first came to South America as a 24-year-old backpacker one of the things I relished most was the idea of dating Latin women.
Many Colombian women enjoy being the object of admiring stares in the street, although most resent the hissing and wolf-whistling which Colombian men can sometimes be prone to.
That said, a female Colombian friend once remarked that she had felt oddly unattractive while living in the USA.
You may well be about to spend a large amount of money treating her to dinner and drinks, but by asking her to get her own taxi and meet you there you can still come out looking stingy!
If the girl does agree to meet you there make sure you’re on time.
The tremendous wealth which was generated from the trafficking of drugs created a culture of elaborate spending.The elephants have long since gone, but the culture of silicon enhancements has remained.I've found approaching and engaging Colombian girls to be much less daunting than in, for example, my home country of the UK.Remember this is only a very basic level introduction to Colombian culture and the people; it cannot account for the diversity within Colombian society and is not meant in any way to stereotype all Colombian people you may meet!Gifts are given for birthdays and Christmas or the Epiphany (January 6th).
