I'm spending one month in a place reportedly with some of the hottest and most naturally redpill women in the world: Medellín, Colombia. Looking to stock up on RP advice before I go.

February 15, 2015

My bio:

36/m, never married

Lift?: Only recently started, not bulky at all yet

Sexual history: Very little activity but not a virgin. I seldom date here at home in the US.

Fat?: 32" waist, 5'11" 205lbs.

Ethnic?: I'm white, but speak advanced-level Spanish

Income?: own my own home and have a small rental condo, on my way to financial independence but still work a 9-5 job and still paying off credit card debt. No college degree or student loan debt, so doing a lot better than many my age.

What advice would you give? If this was you going on this trip instead of me, what would your goals be to take the most advantage of the limited time?

My main goal is to gain experience with non-US women and see what they're like. This should help me explore what my own tastes are and whether I'd be happy living in such a place once my finances might permit someday soon. I'm not opposed to marrying a Colombian woman as long as we both stay there in Colombia, with its single-digit divorce rate and strong societal stigma on women who divorce. However, I've been well-warned that many women down there especially (AWALT) will want to take advantage of a gringo man's finances. So marriage seems only a dim likelihood ever.

I've been to Colombia twice. Great place. Keep alert at night though, even groups. I wont tell you my personal story as I dont want to be doxxed... but... people get mugged. I've seen it happen, and then talked to ppl and heard other ppls stories. Dont be one of them. Stay alert, especially at night.

Part 1: Dont get mugged

Always be listening for footsteps behind you and ambushes... but dont be too nervous about it, just be smart and alert (always listening).

If you get mugged it'll likely be 1 of 4 ways:

a. someone runs up from behind you, takes your X and runs off with it. likely to have a knife. -- happened to friend (i was there and saw it happen)

b. a motorcycle pulls up to you as you're walking down the sidewalk or are stopped in traffic, they demand your X (likely with a gun) . -- happened to friend

c. mugged on a bus (such as Transmillenio in Bogota)-- dont be on a deserted bus. likely to have a knife. -- happened to friend

d. withdrawing money from an ATM, even in broad day light. If 3+ ppl walk up to you at an ATM, GTFO, especially if its 3 or 4+ guys. It might be wiser to drop your $100 or whatever withdrawal, rather than be carted around the city to ATM after ATM at knife point until your account is drained and the thieves walk away with your entire checking account balance (or its withdrawal limit assuming it has one). -- heard this story from a lady of about 30-35ish while at a hostel in Colombia-- it happened to her. likely to have a knife.

Part 2: Approach constantly and build practice = key for success

As fishysmelly says, you have to approach as much as possible. You only have 1 month-- start immediately learning how the locals think. Learn about how the local socioeconomic situation is (which will depend on the neighborhood you're in). Learn what current issues and events are in the City, the Region, the Country.

Try to develop a sense of what the culture you are getting into is like... and practice, practice, practice.

get the fuck out there and talk to people dude, build practice very quickly, get up that learning curve within the first week, that should be your goal.

Colombian women are like any women.. they like fashion, humor, ... that's all in general. specifically they will have their personal interests as human beings -- figure out what some of those are early on, and then use them with other women ("are you into XYZ?" "i really like ABC") etc.

Also.. have confidence. you're the gringo, you represent power, education, intelligence, wealth, etc. If you go in all beta, they're gonna think you're a loser gringo. holding frame is super important. but it shouldn't be hard as long as you keep in mind that most ppl in the country are going to respect you from the get go, b/c as I said, you're the power-gringo.

be confident and be the person they will respect

I know this is too late to have an impact on rockymountainoysters trip but could be good for someone else.

A good insurance to have when getting mugged in a cheaper country is to have cash on you. Something like 40 dollars and they get your wallet and it's JACKPOT for them and theyre out of there, fast. If you don't have cash things can go ugly. Just keep another credit card or something in your hotel.

Great advice!

Create a convincing fake wallet that is easily handed to a mugger.

Keep the real one well hidden...

Great post, thanks! My post was last month, and I've actually been here in Medellín for two weeks already, with two more weeks left to go.

Appreciate the mugging advice. Have seen nothing sketchy yet, and have been to good and not-so-good parts of the city. Would like to hear additional details if you don't mind PMing me.

How was your time in Medellin? I am going by myself and i am rather shy unfortunately. Were you able to approach woman easily and whatever?

[–]rockymountainoysters[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It was so good, I'm trying to move there now. The women are better than American women in every way except English fluency.

I speak advanced Spanish, which helped a lot.

[–]fishysmelly2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Use your time there. Go nuts and approach as much as you can. It's easy to have big plans and then just kill off the time doing shit.

I went there and Colombians are my favorite people. They are very flirtacious and playful. You can go nuts on flirting overtly with every woman there without problem. Colombian men are really funny too. Just don't hold yourself back and you will have a good time.

I would love to hear more about how fellow RPers experience Colombia as a country.

What's great about it? What bothers you about the country? An elaboration of how people there chime with the AF/BB theory?

[–]rockymountainoysters[S] 4 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

OP here, I doubt many will see your prompt because this is a three month old thread, but now that I've experienced Colombia for a month I can tell you it changed my life.

Going to Colombia was what firmly migrated TRP from theory to fact in my mind.

When TRP talks about how American women are the worst in the world, I took it with a grain of salt because I had nothing to compare it to. Now I do.

AWALT and all, but in Colombia the divorce rate is in the single digits. How is it like that, if AWALT? I say power.

Power, because Colombia isn't a feminized country. It's a machismo culture country.

As a man, we are the abundant and overexploited resource here in the US. How would it feel if the laws and culture were different? How would it feel if I was the scarce resource?

Now I know the answer. As the scarce resource, women are far more likely to treat you with respect and submission, and to keep themselves up. I felt it. And I recognized it as a feeling I'd always expected from my relationships with women in the US, but which was always curiously absent.

You ask Colombians what problems are plaguing marriage there, and they'll answer that it's aldulterous men.

Men have the option to cheat easily in Colombia because men have higher SMV due to scarcity. Sound familiar? Because that describes women in the US.

Anyway, I just lost my job yesterday so now I'm weighing a permanent move to Colombia in my near future. I can live comfortably off of about US$15,000 there, which I should be able to earn remotely with a few rental properties I'll keep here in the US. That means that I can do what I want in Colombia with financial independence, at age 36.

TL;DR: AWALT including Colombian women, but a man can properly harness AF/BB to achieve what he wants, if he does it in a country that hasn't stripped all his rights away from him.

I have been around a bit and my favorite women are Colombians also. But I also really like the men there, their whole culture of having fun is golden.

I think there are a couple of more reasons to why it's so good:

1) The biggest reason I think is that there is a general feeling of non-safety. With the guerillas and stuff it's not so safe. That makes people appreciate the small things more. It was 5 years ago I was there and perhaps it's changing but it doesn't change over night.

2) Family-oriented, talked about all the time at RP

3) Catholic. They don't fuck as easily as other religions. Also talked about a lot on RP, but I think this is big.

Sounds awesome! Thank you for sharing. And yeah, I noticed the whole subrettid itself (geotrp) is quite inactive, but just wanted to leave the question there if you or anyone else would ever see it.

Ive been thinking of moving there for a while myself, but I would have to finish my education (with an exchange year in either Bogotá or Medellín) in at home first, so I have a lot of time. Apart from practicing Spanish, do you have any tips for things I can prepare for?

[–]rockymountainoysters[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Not until you've achieved decent fluency in Spanish. You simply can't live close to your potential in Colombia without it.

[–]fishysmelly0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I agree with that

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
