What I don't appreciate are the people who make South America and particularly places like Colombia out to be ***** havens where all you basically have to do is show up. That is the impression I got from reading several blogs before I booked my ticket. I consider myself to have average game; I'm decent at making conversation but am kinda picky about how I approach, big crowds kinda put me off. The situation with trying to infiltrate the big groups at the clubs was pretty discouraging to me; in fact I know even some top tier pickup artists have had trouble with it. I agree making male friends is necessary to get introduced to the right people, dating apps aren't really my thing. Figuratively it would just be nice to find somewhere outside the US where picking up isn't such a chore.I am currently living in Panama and was in Colombia for like two months.
You can hook up, but you have to get good at penetrating social groups when out and it's not easy to get same night lays.
I hate the stereotypes about latin America being so easy for any foreign men. It's not at all. Unless you like pros or visa chasers.
You have to put in more work here to build a steady pipeline of women but it can be done. They do expect you to court them though which is a pain. It's a good place for finding a high quality gf or wife, not good for a single playboy unless you are into hookers.
I currently have a very high quality Panamanian gf...very nice, pretty girl and traditional. Almost too nice. She works with autistic children and buys me gifts and helps me clean my apartment all the time. I have a tonne of respect for her actually.
I have plenty of other options as well that i could date anytime just from playing around on dating apps meeting a few times and a few good club approaches.
It requires a different kind of game down here and patience is needed. Good luck if you don't speak any Spanish. You definitely won't just step off the plane and be drowning in free *****. It is nothing like that. Inner confidence goes a long way here though. You will be **** tested a lot.
And the competition here is not light. They have a more macho culture down here and most ethnic latin men are naturally more alpha acting than your average gringo it seems. They have zero issues with approaching woman anywhere, anytime. It's accepted as part of the culture and even encouraged it seems.
And considering the language gap...unless you are fluent....yeah most girls that express interest in you will be after money or opportunity in some form or fashion. You can easily filter those ones out though.
Honestly, just for hooking up with non pros and going out....i would choose any big american city over anywhere i have been down here. Las Vegas for example is way easier and quicker. So is Atlanta even.
