Colombian dating woman
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.In every South American country in which I travelled, from the tip of Patagonia to the northernmost reaches of the continent I met wonderful women.It can be really challenging, especially if this is your first relationship with a Colombian man and especially if you don’t have other Gringa friends who have been in relationships with Colombian men to ask advice. I haven’t lived with my parents since I was 17 and none of my past boyfriends lived in the same states as their families. For me, manicured nails, makeup, and perfectly smooth legs was never really my priority (you could say I grew up more of a “beach scrub”). Colombian men, and Colombian culture in general, expect groomed and well-presented women.Here are some differences between Colombian dating culture and dating culture in the United States, and my suggestions on how to address them: Colombian men are family men. So all of a sudden having Colombian in-law’s that I saw on a weekly basis and that messaged me every other day and that asked me personal questions was a bit overwhelming. Colombian dating culture also prefers women who are “juiciosa”.
As I mentioned in my last article, male-female platonic friendships are considered far less common, particularly if the pair in question are single.
This isn’t to say to be “juiciosa” is to be boring, but just that there are certain types of attributes and behaviors that Colombian men value in the women that they date.
It all depends on the relationship, but this is where clear communication and understanding comes into extreme importance.
There isn’t a direct translation for this word but a loose definition is a well-behaved woman.
A Colombian woman who focuses on her studies and her work, knows how to take care of her mother-in-law, doesn’t go out and get wasted every weekend, and that is dedicated to her man, is a Colombian woman in high demand.
