from what i have observed they are not nearly as desperate as North American/Colombian American men.they get along better with their partners and seem to be more sincere.i dont know What the divorce rate is in Colombia,but it cant be anywheres near what it is in the U.S.

I usually agree with a lot of arthurs statements. NA men do seem to be a lot more desperate, and nerdy too.



But more sincere? No other place in the world have I heard as much BS coming from the mouths of guys looking to get over on a girl as I do here. How many kids are there running around the streets of Colombia that have absolutely no idea who their father's are? I know a whole bunch who THINK they know, but are wrong. YES it does happen in the US and other places, but from what I see colombian guys don't stick around to long and think nothing of leaving if times get tough. Maybe, just maybe the divorce rate is hight in the US, I doubt it, but let's just say so. The reason it would be is because a lot of colombians don't even get married in the first place, so a lot of the "divorces" wouldn't even be on record.

Of almost every family I know in Colombia (15+ years) there is almost always a child born with another woman outside of the family. Cheating down here is way more prevalent and acceptable than in the US.

Nothing scientific, just my observations.

oh....... I forgot to mention that i also beleive that the Colombian men are more passionate and make better lovers because they have more experience than the average North American.I live across the street from a park and i always see couples there holding hands and kissing.

Her in the USA when the Marriage sours, We Divorce whereas in Colombia, they only seperate and in some cases they don't even do that. It would be difficult to find hard numbers in Col due to this.Cheating goes on in the US but its not part of the Norm. In most cases(most not all) the US couple divorces and then goes off with the new Novia(o)whereas in Col life continues as usual.

whereas in Col life continues as usual. miamimike Amazing isn't it.



In my wifes family alone there are four situations exactly as you have described. In three of the four they are still married to each other and continue some sort of relationship. Although not a sexual one. They also have other novias and even children by them. In the other case while the man has remarried he still assumes some responsibility for his ex's welfare.



The startling thing to me is that all the women seem to accept the status quo as normal. I guess you may find the same thing in the States but I am convinced it would not be a pleasant environment.

I agree with the above posts. Many people separate and don't bother to get divorced. One of my wife's brothers is separated and his "wife" is now living with another guy. So to say that the Colombian divorce rate is low is meaningless. My wife will refer to someone as "separado" and I'll ask if they're divorced - invariably they're not.

Keep in mind In Colombia, the pool of Colombian women that is available to a Colombian man, especially if the man has something as luxurious as a car, is far greater than the pool of women available to an American man. I have heard the statistic over and over, that ratio of Colombian women to men is 8:1. In the US, it's closer to 1:1. Now I can't imagine how there are 8 women to every man, but if that is the case, it stands to reason that the women are going to be that much more desperate, and the men are going to have that much easier a time picking up a woman.

8:1? As per the last census, it is:



men: 20,668,157

women: 21,422,345



No matter how you cut and dry it, that doesn't make 8:1.

Well.......... I said I did not know how accurate that number was. But I have to believe you have heard that before too. I heard it a lot over the years. I think that number is sort of a distortion superimosing those numbers on the country, when in reality it is a given locale where the numbers are higer. Cali, for example is known to have many more women than men. How many, I don't know. I think further when they refer to the number of women, I think that can be further refined to women between the age of 20 and 30. I'll say this, if you walk through downtown Cali, it sure looks like there are many more young women than men. On the other hand, maybe that just happens to be where my eyes happen to glance making it seem that way.

I love the fact that Colombian men are very romantic and have experienced this personally. I wonder how Colombian men decide to commit to a relationship...is being stable really a big deal before wanting to enter into a serious relationship...or does lover conquer all?

Posted on December 9, 2006


Why doesn't it aply to us The Colombiana will live with her cheating Colombiano haply ever after, but if you Greengo, Dutch, Canadian, something other than pure latin macho cheats on her she will leave you instantly. The most pasionate speech you could get from a Colombiana is "TE AMO POR QUE ERES UN PERRO" JUst joking guys.

Tinto Pacha Mama?



I can just imagine what that woman looks like?

Posted on December 9, 2006


Mother Earth as revered by your ancestors and also modern-day native population of the Andes can take many different semblances just like the God of the Jews and Christians. Let's NOT talk about what if God looked like just you and me...

Colombian Men Why. When I ask a Colombiana why are you and not with a good Colombian man do they answer there aren't any good Colombian men. Just my observation. Boatygringo

Posted on December 9, 2006


No hay hombres that's the standard answer you get from any single Colombiana when you ask why she isn't married or have a boyfriend. "There are no men in Colombia", "there are no good men" or "Se acabaron los hombres en Colombia". I have heard this a hundred times from my unmarried Colombian female friends. Now, what does this mean???



It means simply that the ladies in question are not happy with the available selection of the males in their neighbourhood in general, The problem is often the availability: all "good" men are already taken. What is a good man? A man of good family, solid education, good, steady job, nice character, faithful and sincere. Those don't last long on the dating market. It can also mean that the lady in question has not been able to attract the attention of the kind of men she wishes; these men may exist but are not available to her.



So, we get lots and lots of women, young but often a bit older (in Colombia that'd be nearing thirty) who see their chances in obtaining a desirable Colombian man diminish every day and they express it in the typical way: "All Colombian guys are dogs/ all the guys in my city have turned gay/ya no hay hombres/se acabaron.



There's no 8:1 or even 4:1 or even 2:1 women:men ratio, not even in Cali. That's an urban legend or just wishful thinking.

Desideria I think ... ...those factors are applicable in the U.S. as well. Remember the out rage at the researcher in the States who made the statement that a woman over 30 is more likely to be hit by lightening than finding a husband.

Posted on December 9, 2006


I'm sure they are, aztec I see the age factor pretty crucial in it. While men when they get divorced almost always marry younger women who are fertile and can/will have children there just aren't enough octogenarians for the older women because the old dudes die younger. Of course, many older women prefer to live alone than cosset and care an ailing senior citizen on their free time.

8:1 ratio Population wise it may not be 8:1 but what are the ratio when it comes to men that are suitable, has a job , car , single and able to support a family and won't leave on a whim ,what is the ratio on them,

A young beautiful chica told me "los hombres" have lots of choices and when they r in bed with them there's not a lot of passion because they always seem to be in a rush,i'm sure that's not always the case ,just what she told me. I know latino r known for thier Don juan life style but i guess too much of a good thing lol also in the EE UU when a man or woman is overly attentive and too passionate it's a classic sign of "infiel"

Dictatorship Alot of people when they suddenly get freedom they can't handle it.

I see this all the time, especialy between EURO man and latinas.

A long time ago I was having a drink with Colombian guy I use to do business with and after a bottle or two I asked him the question.

How to keep your Colombiana under control, and he told me one thing.

You can never ever give a Colombiana to much freedom, you got to be on top of them. Through the years I have seen not all but most of these freedom relationships go down. I don't know why but it happens.

I see more Man dictatorship (with Latinas) relations survive.

Posted on December 9, 2006


Dictatorship, By lockheed . That doesn't seem like a... ...good way to live. Freedom is not ours to give. If they want to leave then let them leave and good riddance.

Posted on December 9, 2006


REALITY Every action has a reaction, If you give freedom something is going to happen good or bad, if you give dictatorship something is going to happen good or bad, sometime you need to apply both or one or the other depending on the situation

men and women in colombia Save the street children of Colombia Now!!

What God has put together let NO MAN take apart. We have to be there for the children. They are the ones that suffer the most. If you cheat you cheat yourselves and your children will suffer for it.

Posted on December 9, 2006


maybe it;s because we as gringos and euro meet the minority of aggresive women who r disenchanted with this macho dictatorship and maybe who want to establish a dictatorship, OF thier own, after years of being dominated . and then Here comes Senor love sick Gringo, AS gringo we don"t have much access to the average colombiana because they are at home even if you met them , they might not make eye contact with u lol not to mention " a ellas no lo hablan english"

El chantajista hit the nail on the head, maybe the ratio is 1:1 but how many colombian guys are worth it?



Thanks for the Ramones song Morphus, I have the "Adios Amigos" shirt from their last tour, looks like a mexican wanted poster with their pictures on it. I have to constantly explain it to people down here (and they still don't get it, so that makes me a "goofy" gringo.

Posted on December 9, 2006


Depends on the age of the woman. A Colombiana over age 30-35 (and worse with kids) is almost totally non-marriageable. There are few Colombian men who are separated or divorced who can support two families and the ones who are single want a childless younger woman. I know some hot widows in Medellin, in their 30s with kids. If I was a polyg I'd hook up with a couple of them because they're smoking hot. I don't know that I'd have the energy for it but I'd die trying.

Nice cleavage. Not too bad. I wouldn't kick her out of bed.



On Saturday, my wife and I went to her company's Christmas party. There were about 150 couples there more or less including some very attractive women. I have to say though, that even at the old age of 46, there was not a woman there that I thought was more attractive than my wife. Her trim shapely legs, her long jet black hair, her beautiful smiling face, the way her little black dress clung to her body...damm, she looked good. Better than good, stunning. I could see a lot of other male party goers enjoyed looking at her too.

morphus nice pix there! great looking girl. But my problem with women is finding one with a decent brain AND the looks. One can get used to the looks of hot babes quickly and if the brain cells arent firing properly then the relationship is doomed!!



I thought id use the word "one" in there, not coz im posh, but because its a good word and avoids confusion. I dont know why its gone out of use. The amount of times Ive said "you" meaning everyone....oh what the hell.

Posted on December 9, 2006


looking for a good man I note that HOT COLOMBIAN MAMA is 28 yo and willing to accept 48 yo! Don't think you would see that range on a U.S. or European post.

Posted on December 9, 2006


REALITY CHECK, Yo, DUDES why doesn't anybody mention a very trendy glitch now a days with Latinas not only Colombianas, if they are hot MILF's or mama's they are craving for young machitos, o yeah yo may not like this reality but the like young flesh, Yo remeber when you were 17 18 or even 22, you enjoyed other peoples sexy mama's, you know MR. Wilson next doors Colombian wife, or Ned Neitherlanders sexy older paisa? Will just think that now you could become MR, Wilson, or MR. Neitherlander.

well I agree that getting married is an easy option. Having kids is verrrry easy! Its easier to get a woman pregnant than be really careful and use proper contraception all the time. If your girlfriend is catholic, you might not be allowed to use contraception at all.



From where I see things, there are enough people on this planet. Enough kids running around having kids like there's no tomorrow. In a way its kind of selfish to have children of your own rather than adopt. Orphanages are bursting with kids.



I know a lot of people who say they are happily married, but its a huge compromise.
