How to Ensure Your Colombian Date is on Time
Colombia women are notorious for being extremely late to dates. In fact, I’ve had situations personally where we had arranged to meet at 8pm and my lovely Colombian date did not show until 10:30pm. This can lead to undue stress and anxiety if you are not prepared for this, as it is very normal here, so be prepared for it!
However, do not fear, I have some tips and tricks that you can use to ensure that your date is on time. The first thing you should do is set up a meeting time about one hour before your desired meeting time. For example, if you would like to meet her at the bar or discoteca at 10pm, tell her that you will meet her there at 9pm. Subsequently do everything among your normal routine so that you yourself will arrive at the place at 10pm. Of course, do not let her know that you are doing this.
Another option to ensure that she arrives on time is to coordinate her transporation for her. What do I mean by this. Well, if you are to meet her at 9pm at your apartment, and she lives 15 minutes away from you, coordinate an Uber (or other taxi service) to pick her up at her house at 8:45pm. Let her know that the Uber will be there at 8:45 pm “punta” (on the dot) and if she does not catch this “free” service, then she will be on her own to coordinate a ride to the meeting location. An added benefit of operating it like this is that she will feel appreciated and cared for. The cost of Ubers is Colombia is exceedingly inexpensive, for example, and a 30-minute Uber will often cost less than $3 USD.
Common to both options, ensure that you continue to communicate with your date. For example, 1 hour before you meet you may send a message on WhatsApp that says, “todavia, nos vemos a 9pm, si” (we are still meeting at 9pm right)? And then 30 minutes before the date you may send another message that says, “estas en amino” (are you on your way).
