Si Quieres Quedar Bien With Your Colombian Mother In Law, Take Down These Notes

La suegra is the fastest way to your lover’s heart. If you’re dating a Colombian, winning over your sweetheart’s mom can be a bit challenging. This guide will make the challenge way easier.

Do your homework: you must know where she’s from.

A paisa (coffee region) and a rola (Bogotá) are not the same kind of Colombian. Don’t make this lethal mistake.

And make every word in your homework is spelled correctly.

clumbia

Please don’t ever say Columbia when referring to her home country. She’ll give you the death stare.

Learn your steps.

Vallenato, salsa, porro and merengue will happen at any given time. Be prepared.

You really want to earn her heart? Enter through her stomach.

ajiaco

Nothing says “I need your approval” like a warm plate of ajiaco, especially if you made it.

Don’t talk like they do in “Narcos.”

As a matter of fact, refrain from even mentioning the show.

Remove the word “parce” from your vocabulary. Just delete it.

You’d lose major points.

Tell her her two-hour glam is the most fabulous makeup job you’ve ever seen.

Colombian mamás put a lot of time into looking fantásticas… And they love it when you notice.

Her arepas should be your favorite arepas.

Even if you don’t like arepas. You like hers.

School yourself on things that matter to her.

Like novelas colombianas, of course, such as “Las hermanitas calle,” “La niña,” “Diomedes,” “Betty la fea,” “Café con aroma de mujer.” You’ll be chatting it up with her in no time.

But above all, love Colombia.

She’ll love you for it.
