Knowing how to look your best is an important step in winning the hearts of Colombian women.

It's a fact that not every man is keen on what to know about dating a Colombian woman. Apart from determining the characteristics of a Colombian woman, it pays to know about her culture and upbringing, especially if you plan on being in a long term relationship with her.

To start with, women in the city of Cali are also known as Caleñas. One thing you need to know about them is that they walk with purpose.

As you study their cultures and traditions, you'll find that it takes a lot of effort to impress an independent woman. They make sure to assess you thoroughly to see if they need you in their life, so the question is, what can you bring to the table? What does it take to woo Colombian women?

Here are some tips on how to look your best on a first date, and eventually figure out how to make a Colombian woman fall in love with you:

1. Dress up.

A good date starts with a good first impression. You have to look classy and dress sharply. Looking your best simply means that you're interested in dating the woman you're with. So show up as someone who wants to win over the girl he's dating.

Prove your worth to her, walk the talk, and expect the bar to be high as you make the effort to meet her standards and expectations. It takes two to tango, so in order to create harmony between the two of you, make sure to follow this very first step so you won’t mess up and step on her toes.

2. Smell good.

This is a very big bonus whenever you're meeting women. Add in some extra pizzazz as your finishing touch. It will definitely make you feel more attractive to a Caleña when you spend time grooming yourself the right way. All women dig men with good hygiene. So make sure you take a shower, brush your teeth, and cut your nails.

3. Mind your manners.

Just when the world starts saying that chivalry is dead, it's all the more important for you to prove them all wrong. Act like a gentleman when you meet a woman for the first time, give her compliments, pull up a chair for her to sit on, and allow her to enter first at any establishment or restaurant.

Take note that having good manners doesn’t only apply when you are out with your lady. Show her that you respect everybody else regardless of age, gender, and race.

Colombian women will fall head over heels for you when you do good deeds, even something as simple as respecting others. These simple things don’t just mean you are being smooth. The point of these is to show that you have one of the qualities that women are searching for in a partner, and it can become a great advantage once you show them that you know what you're doing.

4. Give her all your attention.

It is critical to show the Caleña you're dating that you are interested in her. She would not want to be with a man who isn't giving her his full attention. Set your priorities straight and pay close attention.

Put away unnecessary thoughts or things. Focus on her and ask questions to show that you want to know more about her.

5. Be aware of your body language.

Understanding basic body language can prove to be useful in the near future. You have to make your date feel special, like she stands out from the rest of the women. You chose her for a reason, so give her the brightest smile whenever you meet her.

Maintain good posture and stand up straight, flex some of your muscles if you have to. Give her a reason to proudly say, “That’s him!” or, “Are you the perfect man?”

Face your body towards her as you speak and never break eye contact. That way for sure, you can grab her attention as your date progresses.

6. Be careful with your words.

Given that you have followed every step so far, this is where you need to show your true colors. Think carefully before you speak. You might say something insensitive and end up ruining your date. Do some research on questions to ask a Colombian girl.

Do not brag too much and never boast about your accomplishments. You may be coming off as an advertisement, one that isn't going to attract the attention of the woman he's on a date with. This can mean that you are looking down on her or expect her to rise to your level, and either of the two can mean no second date.

7. Be punctual.

On every date you set up, it is best to uphold the tradition wherein a man should arrive earlier than the woman. It is good to have a lot of preparation and that rush of excitement when you meet her. It gives you additional points when a woman sees you waiting for her to arrive. It makes her happy to know that you are excited to see her, and as a result, your date should run smoothly.

8. Know your limits and boundaries.

When going out on your first date, it is very important to set limits to your actions. Don’t get all touchy and don't be too direct with your intentions. It can get awkward, or worse, you will end up making her feel uncomfortable throughout the date.

You can offer to let her hold your arm as you go out and take a stroll, but it should end there. Give her a sense of companionship and protection when you do this, and never expect any sexual favors on a first date - that’s a major deal breaker for Latina women, or any woman for that matter.

Calenas are very conservative; they were raised to date with marriage in mind, not get into casual flings or hookups.

Money vs Effort

When dating Colombian women, keep in mind that your dates don't have to be expensive. It is the thought and effort that always count.

Just have some careful planning. Even going out for a cup of coffee should suffice as long as you pick the right place. We strongly suggest that you visit the Salsa Museum and explore the city of Cali to learn more about your Caleña's culture.

Engage in conversations where you can get to know more about each other. Consider these things when you meet Colombian women, and you will surely make the best first impression on your first date with them.
