What You Need to Know Before Dating a Colombian Man

If you have watched the TV show ‘Narcos’ or any documentary about Colombia, then you might have a faint idea of what Colombian men are like.

For one, they are extremely good-looking, with their thick, wavy hair, piercing black eyes, and facial hair. As an extra attraction nowadays, most of them have tattoos too.

Physical attributes aside, Colombian guys are known to be extremely passionate, confident and not shy in their pursuit of a lady, very good dancers, outrageous flirts, friendly, funny, and very kind.

Now all of this is bound to draw most ladies to them. And if you are not a native, dating a Colombian man will be a whole new experience for you. To give you an idea of what to expect, here are a few tips and tricks on what you should know before you dating Colombian guys.

Here are the good parts of dating a Colombian

Let’s start out with the positive aspects of dating these gents:

They like foreigners.

Do not worry about being lonely in Colombia simply because you are new there. Colombian men like the experience of being with a foreign woman. And, they do not have particulars, so feel comfortable enough to be in your own skin. Wear clothes from your home town, do not hide your accent, and teach him a few of your home traditions.

They make the first move.

Colombian guys are very sure of themselves so they will not hesitate to approach you if they have a liking for you. You can sit pretty, maybe just give a few cute glances to the guy you fancy, and he will walk right up to you and strike up a conversation.

They are adventurous.

Colombian men will set up dates and little adventures in new places that you have not been to, and hey, you never know, you just might find yourself on a plane with him to a new destination!

They like to show off their women.

If you are dating a man from Colombia, best believe that he will drape you over his arm and show you off to everyone. They are not afraid of making it known that you are with them, and just might introduce you to their families too.

The perfect gentlemen.

Now, these are the kind of men that will open the car door for you, hold a door open so that you can walk in or out first, and step in to defend you if someone tries to cross or disrespect you. For the whole duration that you will be together, he will be the perfect gentleman.

But, there’s a downside…

Yes, Prince Charming swept you off your feet, took you all over, showed you off and held doors open for you, but there is an ogre in the fairytale…

Punctuality is a trait yet to be embraced

If you set a date at 5 pm, your man will probably show up at 7… 8… or not at all. They really do suck at keeping time, and this might be a bummer for you if you are strict on it. The best thing you could do is get there an hour later too, or carry a book, or your laptop and get some work done. Alternatively, just wait for him to call you when he gets to the venue, that way, no time lost.

Colombian men can be mama’s boys

Colombian men are raised up at home, and are very close to their female family members, those being their mothers and sisters. Matter of fact, most of them move out only after they have found a suitable girl to marry. They hold their moms to the highest standards, so do not try to compete with that or detach them. It might not end up so well for you.

They are definitely not the monogamous type.

Many of the Colombian men are definitely not the type to settle down with only one woman, which is also a factor to consider when in long-distance relationships. If you do decide to date one during your stay there, do not really be eager about a serious commitment. But this could be a good thing, as it means you can widen your horizons too.

These are just a few things to know about Colombian men before you settle down with them. So have fun while at it and head up to Amolatina to find you Colombian date!
