“Colombian men see foreign women almost in a different category,” she said.

However, while this may open some doors it may see others shut rather quickly.

Georgina Blair is a young American professional living in Medellin, Colombia, and she first met her Colombian boyfriend a year ago when she broke with convention and asked him to dance.

Dating Etiquette According to Georgina, foreign women are given more leeway to break with traditional gender roles and dating etiquette as they are viewed differently by Latin men.

Is that hand on your knee a flirtatious come-on, or a culturally distinct approach to personal space?

Is splitting the bill a nod to equal gender relations, an unforgivable challenge to your date’s masculinity, or the sign of an incorrigible tight-wad?

“For Colombian women it is more about feeling good about yourself based on how well you fulfill these stereotypes of being a nice girl,” she said.

“Foreign women aren’t nice girls, they are loud and demanding.” While an invitation to dance offers the perfect ‘in’ with the average Latino, for those with a fear of rhythm there are still alternatives to pounding cheek-to-cheek musical passion/sweaty palm grasping and awkward stumbling.

Love, whether a life-long partnership or a night-long fling, is never easy.
