#3- Why do gringo (guy) polls consistently rate Colombian women as their #1 fantasy (even though (99.99% of gringos have never even met much less spoken to one personally)
Is it reality, wishful thinking or just a lot of internet hype?

There's a real problem with newbee gringos and gringas who are suckers for the first pretty face they connect with. It’s impossible to overstate the cluelessness of many newbee gringos when it comes to love and romance… as you will find out in today’s wild and crazy “boots on the ground” stories.
