Confessions of Dating a Colombian Man
Colombian men and women are known for their good looks worldwide. However, good looks aren’t the only thing Colombian men are known for. Dating a Colombian man comes with its challenges to say the least.
It’s intense. You will love and laugh harder than ever before, but you might also feel other emotions exponentially: jealousy, rage and maybe even obsession.
I decided to reach out to a few women who share their experiences of meeting and dating a Colombian man.
Unfortunately, all of them but one asked to remain anonymous. They are women in their 20s and 30s who come from all different continents. Let’s see if you can spot a particular trend amongst the beautiful Colombian men of this country.
Below are the testimonials of real woman who share the particularities of dating a Colombian man.
Colombian men and dancing
“You’ll finally be aware of just how bad people dance in your country and how wonderfully lucky you are to have your dancing man.” -Anonymous
“Your experience going out with a Colombian man differs based on the region which he is from. For example, men from central Colombian are more open and it’s not as common for them to date different women at the same time. Nonetheless, they’re not as good dancers.”

Dating a Colombian man
“Colombian men tend to invite you to everything when you go out on a date and they’re always making sure you’re having a good time. What I can’t stand is that the majority of them are very machistas and often times date several women at once”
-Lina from Patoneando.com
“I’ve found that Colombian guys are all about the big, empty promises. For example: “I would love to take you to Villa de Leyva” and “then when you meet my best friends…” or “I’m going to cook you this amazing meal at my finca,” which they all tend to say really early on into dating, at a time when you wouldn’t normally plan to do such serious things. And of course, they never follow through. I have no idea why they feel they need to promise all those things early on. Perhaps it’s all part of the sell? Either way, it’s annoying as fuck. When I say I am going to do something, or introduce you to someone, or say “I love you”, I say it at the appropriate time and I follow through on my promises. It’s as simple and as complicated as that.” -Anonymous
“A Colombian man requires a lot of attention. I find them very attached, demanding, and they want to be with you every second!” -Anonymous
Colombian men and sexual encounters
“I am shocked at the lack of and comfort talking about sexual health and protection. I’ve been with a couple of very well educated, sophisticated guys who tried to have sex with me the first time without a condom (and they didn’t ask if I was on birth control, either)!!! It freaked me out because I was like “Whoa, I thought you were a smart guy, this is some pretty basic stuff?!” It seems as though it is still taboo to talk about STDs and birth control, which is appalling. It’s a matter of public health!” -Anonymous
Colombian men and family
“A Colombian man bases his notion of what a woman should be like after his female family members. They expect women to be very feminine. Earrings are a MUST; if you don’t wear them, you are not a woman. The longer your hair, the most attractive you are.” -Anonymous
“Colombian men are very attached to their land and family. Most of the foreign girls I’ve met who live in Bogota have moved because of their partners. Although Colombians travel abroad, they eventually feel the need to come back to their homeland and be close to their family.” -Anonymous
“Personal space and privacy can be inexistent in many Colombian families. Information and intimate details of one’s personal life will travel across the entire family at the speed of lightning. This isn’t always so pleasant, as everyone feels entitled to their 2 cents about your relationship decisions.” -Anonymous
Colombian men and love
“Colombian men NEED women, and even if they may have many women in their lives, there is always JUST one who they will love forever.”-Anonymous
“A Colombian man loves to be pampered, and loves to be right.”-Anonymous
“Colombian men seem to be generally quite sensitive so this can be something that brings some extra drama (or romance) to relationships. Also, pick a good one as loads seem to be either unfaithful or machista, or both.” -Anonymous
“A Colombian man will treat his woman with gentleness, warmth and love. He will always look out for this woman and go out of his way to make her happy.” -Anonymous
“Colombians love European women, but they have hard time accepting cultural differences.”-Anonymous
“Conflict is a fundamental part of a relationship.”
