If you’ve invited your romantic interest to your birthday party at your girlfriend’s house – yes, this happened to someone – you’re already doomed to failure.

This also goes for sneakily inviting someone on a date… On the topic of failures, James recounts that he was dating a ‘cool’ girl for a while until a few months down the line she let slip that she thought Hitler was misunderstood.

Most, fortunately, are on the better end of the scale.

So here is what we think about Colombian men, feel free to share your own experience via our facebook comment box.

......................................................................................................................................... Colombian men are - at best - romantic, passionate, charming and great at dancing. Liberal with the rules of monogamous relationships, jealous and macho.

In the UK there is normally a to-me to-you performance, which results in either going Dutch, or one paying and the other picking up the drinks somewhere else or offering to pay next time.

Lots of the British women I spoke to said they often feel uncomfortable constantly having their costs covered and British guys find it presumptuous when Colombian women never offer to pay, or even feign to reach for their purses.

Then again, that's true of everywhere in the world.

.......................................................................................................................................... While the big deal may often be about Colombian women, you’ll meet many foreign women throughout Colombia that have come to the country having met a Colombian abroad, or that have come looking for a taste of that infamous Latin lover.

It would be nice to think that St Valentine’s falls in February as a promise of love, a beacon of hope for the rest of the year – a snuggly bubble to keep you warm through 2017.

However, most of us know that with Colombian dating, the road to love is fraught with lapses in judgement, awkward misunderstanding, cultural differences, laughter and tears, and even the occasional downright disaster.

One could argue that the same goes for ‘delicioso’.

Despite Colombians not being shy about public displays of affection, open conversations about sex aren’t that common and though many may want to have one night stands, it seems we’re all supposed to pretend they don’t happen.
