Many Colombian women enjoy being the object of admiring stares in the street, although most resent the hissing and wolf-whistling which Colombian men can sometimes be prone to.
That said, a female Colombian friend once remarked that she had felt oddly unattractive while living in the USA.
This supposedly goes back to the days of the drug cartels, of which the Medellin and Cali cartels were the largest and most powerful.
The tremendous wealth which was generated from the trafficking of drugs created a culture of elaborate spending.
Dating a Colombian man comes with its challenges to say the least. You will love and laugh harder than ever before, but you might also feel other emotions exponentially: jealousy, rage and maybe even obsession.
