What Colombian Women Look For in Men

There are a lot of guys who are looking for Colombian women on a multitude of dating sites for singles. They’re on a lot of different sites and on a lot of different apps and sometimes they succeed. But there are times when they find their romantic prospects a little bit barren.

There’s a reason that some guys find themselves striking out with Latinas over and over again. The women look at their profile or meet them in real life and find that the guys aren’t what they want.

Sometimes the men are the physical specimens that these women want. Well, if that’s the case, then there’s not a lot that can be done. But there are times when the men’s physical appearance isn’t what makes dating a Colombian hard, but because they don’t have the non-physical traits that these women want in a partner.

Now, no one should have to change who they are in order to find love. Becoming someone else to get someone to fall in love with just makes for a situation wherein they don’t fall in love with you, but with the version of yourself that you presented. Eventually, the facade cracks and the veneer fades because keeping up a performance of that magnitude is exhausting.

The real you is going to come out eventually and the woman that you’re with may not like what sees you.

So you’re going to want to be honest. But too much honesty might not serve your romantic interests. The trick is to find a balance between being who you are and being what Colombian women want so that you find success dating in Colombia.

Be enough of yourself that they’ll still want you when it’s time to be fully real, but embellish enough to get them to want you in the first place. You want them to want you, but you want them to want the real you.

Part of presenting yourself in a way that makes Latina women want to be with means knowing what they like. You don’t have to embody these things completely, but strongly implying that you do can at least get your foot in the door and get some measure of a headstart when diving into Colombian dating culture.

Think of it like a job. You know you can do it, but your CV isn’t the kind that gets noticed. So maybe you embellish a little bit to get hired so you can prove that you could be great at it all along. This way, you won’t need to know how to tell if a Colombian girl likes you.

Besides, a little bit of embellishment is just part and parcel of online dating. It’s not unusual for someone to make themselves look a little better than you normally are in real life.

What They Want In A Man

  • Liking Football

    The most popular sport in the world is football and not the kind that has quarterbacks and wins SuperBowls, but the kind that has goalies and wins World Cups. Colombia is one of the many countries all over the world that is enamored by the beautiful game.

    Female fans are going to be just as passionate about football as the male ones. It’s not unusual for women to dress up in their favorite club’s colors or paint their faces in those colors.

    So if you want to get with them, you may have to develop an appreciation for goals over touchdowns because their devotion to the game can sometimes border on rabid.

    Because in Colombia, football is not just a sport but a cornerstone of national identity.

    You don’t need to know everything about the game, but if you can show that you can appreciate something that is so woven into modern Colombian culture, then that’s going to encourage the feelings that Colombian girls might have towards you.

  • Flirty But Not Forward

    Also, it helps if you’re not too stingy with your interest. A woman no matter what her national origin isn’t going to want to waste her time on a man that seems like he wouldn’t give her the time of day.

    But at the same time, a guy that’s too forward, too eager, will seem desperate and desperation is kind of a turn-off. So flirt, crack a few jokes. Just don’t take it too far.

  • Cut A Rug

    Some people can be a little shy about dancing. Maybe they’re not the most coordinated people. Maybe they have two left feet. Whatever the reason, they don’t dance.

    And it’s for that reason that they’re not going to find much romantic success in Colombia.

    Dance is another important facet of Colombian culture, which means it’s something with which a foreign man may need to familiarize himself.

  • Speak Some Spanish

    The main language in Colombia–and Latin America in general with the exception of Brazil–is Spanish. So being able to drop some Spanish is going to be something that the women appreciate.

    Full fluency would be even better, since being able to speak the local language can help circumvent the language barrier that can sometimes arise with international couples.

  • Be Chivalrous
  • There’s a certain old school definition of masculinity in Colombia and part of that masculine identity is chivalry. Pull out her chair, offer her your coat if it’s cold out, and accompany her home.

    Going the extra mile can be a game-changer. A small gesture can tip the scales in your favor.

Dating can be hard. One of the hardest things about dating can be just trying to score a date. All too often, people on a dating website will take one look at a person’s profile and then move on to the next.

It can be the same with dating in real life. A person can spend a few minutes with another person and then decide pretty much instantly whether or not there are going to be more dates in the future.

There are a few ways to present yourself so as to maximize your chances with Colombian women. They’re not guaranteed because nothing in life is, but they do shift the odds in your favor.
