When people talk about Colombia, they talk about music, coffee, and landscapes. But more often, they talk about Colombians .

    What is it that makes Colombians attractive to foreigners? Are their physical features, or is their personality?

    We would say it is both.

    Colombian people are the result of a mix of cultures and a blend of ethnicities. Our country has been influenced by Spanish, Middle-Easterns, Africans, and native indigenous peoples . It is these blends that make Colombians attractive to the eyes of foreigners.

    With regards to personality, Colombians are extrovertive, funny, and fun. They love music, dancing and are also great talkers. That’s a good recipe for flirting, isn’t it?

    For Colombians, flirting is a game. It’s not about playing all the cards at once, but keeping the other person entertained and keen to get to know you more…

    This means not showing too much interest at first and not being too direct.

    Yes, we know it can be confusing, mainly for those used to being direct and straightforward. But trust us, that’s the trick.

    Another thing you need to know to flirt with Colombians is the use of body language!

    For Colombians, body language is as important as spoken language. Learning Colombian Spanish will give you extra points, but it won’t be successful if you balance it with a smile.

    Oh, another thing before we start…

    Do Colombian women and men flirt the same way?

    This is a very important question! And you should know it because your flirting techniques will depend upon this.

    Colombia is a traditional country. In big cities, people are more open-minded, but Colombians are generally old-school when it comes to flirting.

    Also, it is essential to know that the genre roles in Colombia are very distinct.

    “Keep in mind that we generalize in this article, but it doesn’t mean that all Colombians behave the same way.

    Colombian Men

    They are usually those that make the first move, they start the small talks, and they use the pick-up lines.

    They are those who ask for a date and those that call or message first.

    Also, generally speaking, men pay the bill when they take a girl out.

    Colombian men are full of creativity, fun, and great talkers.

    Colombian Women

    They do basically the opposite.

    They usually expect men to approach first. They don’t call or message first, and they don’t ask the guy out.

    Also, they expect the man to pay the bill if he asks her to go on a date. It doesn’t mean she can’t afford it, it’s just a nice gesture, and it gives you points.

    Of course, there are exceptions. In cities like Bogota, women are more independent, but here we mention the general rules.

    It doesn’t mean women don’t flirt, they do! And, they flirt a lot; they just do it differently.

    In the flirting game, men use words and women use body language.

    Women start by smiling, touching their hair, or giving you a wink. Then, when you get their attention and go on a date, they like a friendly conversation.

    So, if you are a man, wait no more to join our Colombian Spanish classes! You will learn Spanish grammar and those cultural tips you need to know to date a Colombian man or woman.

    One of the best things you can do is showing genuine interest in that person. Ask how they are today and what did they did during the day.

    Try to make the other person smile, but don’t be too funny; it puts you directly in the friend zone! And, if they don’t get your humor, you can always say:

    • La pasé muy bien contigo hoy. Cuándo te veo de nuevo? I had a great time with you today. When can I see you again?

    To finish, we would like to mention basic Dos and Don’ts when flirting or dating Colombians.
