So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.Actually, I got more instant attention in Southern California; the “Latino effect.” The only thing that makes me stand out to women here is my height, thank God for that one tall great uncle! Regarldess, I look on the bright side and see this as an advantage.And being shy means that I am a ‘good’ Christian girl.However, for me, as the years passed, I wondered if this was true. It seemed that in every other area of life God requires my active participation.For myself, I fell for this myth hook, line, and sinker, for two reasons.One, I was shy with guys and stepping out was uncomfortable and scary.Finding a job, making friends, doing ministry, and going to seminary all required me to take some action. If I did something beyond praying and waiting, did that mean I was taking over for men and sinfully thwarting God’s design for marriage?Looking to scripture, I saw, there are women who we admire, who take active roles particularly in the way they relate to men. She perfumes herself, dresses up and then presents herself at Boaz’s feet after he climbs into bed.
I thought by waiting for this courageous pursuer the church kept talking about, I would get a guy strong enough to fix my tendency to control.
It is through him that I find the greatest hope for a happy and blessed marriage, not by following a man-made dating prescription.
Medellin women are beautiful, and word is spreading pretty much around the world. I have been dating Colombian women for over 6 years now.
That seems a lot bolder than telling a guy that you like him!
And scripture applauds her, it does not condemn her.
I have found that Medellin women, as in most parts of the world, love compliments and like it when a guy can make them laugh.
