I’ve never been a girl who desired dating a guy from outside of the US, but I wasn’t opposed to the idea of it.Christopher and I have been dating for over a year now, and I can honestly say that dating him has been very exhilarating.They weren't all obsessed with fame and fortune, were they?Was American culture really as shallow as my friends had warned? She was a down-to-earth Midwesterner with ambitions in New York City theater.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.
As with any other multicultural relationship, there can also be some challenges, or thins that you haven’t experienced before in past relationships.
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.
Still, when I met my first girlfriend in 2007, a ballerina who had recently moved from San Francisco, I was immediately taken aback by an overarching obsession with status and money.
She had a vision of the man she was going to marry: tall, dark, handsome, and a millionaire.
