Dating with colombians
Apparently a girl paying is a sign that she’s not really interested, however, a guy picking up the bill isn’t a sweeping statement of affection either.“Be careful,” advised one Colombian girlfriend, “it doesn’t mean you’re special, it’s just what men have been brought up to do with all girls.” Confused? “I just don’t understand why you send me such short messages,” said Pedro, an exasperated Colombian to a friend, “you act like you’re interested and then just reply with one word!You were merry all through Christmas and crawled your way out of January, supposedly the most depressing month of the year, to arrive on February’s doorstep.It would be nice to think that St Valentine’s falls in February as a promise of love, a beacon of hope for the rest of the year – a snuggly bubble to keep you warm through 2017.There’s a lot more interesting things about our culture.We Colombian girls like and demand attention (and good manners).
If you’ve invited your romantic interest to your birthday party at your girlfriend’s house – yes, this happened to someone – you’re already doomed to failure.Making noises with your mouth, burping, or slurping your beer isn’t sexy.Show some chivalry; let your date sit first, be respectful with the people around you, and of course, forget about your phone. “Te ves muy linda”, “Me encantan tus chistes”, or whatever flows into the conversation will score extra points. If talking to you seems like talking to a new friend, you’ll probably become ‘just another one’ on the dating list. Give her a nice look, lightly touch her leg, or hug her if she’s cold.Paula, a Colombian friend, was outraged that she’d been with a guy for three weeks and he hadn’t told her that he loved her, whereas for most Brits revealing your feelings early on can send someone running for the hills.The same goes for mentioning marriage, kids or meeting the family.
