Of course, not all Brazilian men are that forward, especially not if they are living abroad and know that the speed of getting to the first kiss is a bit slower, but expect that a Brazilian man who is interested in you will try to make out with you sooner rather than later.Brazilian men will compliment you like there’s no tomorrow – anything they see that they like about you, they will tell you about.Read on fi you find yourself attracted to Brazilian men…Brazilian men have no qualms about approaching a woman whom they find attractive.In fact, they go up to almost any woman who catches their eye.This might sound funny, but I couldn't help wonder since I'm a trained relationship and dating coach, how gringos are viewed in terms of dating?
I'm talking real compliments, like “voce é muito linda” (you are so beautiful).
July 5, 2009This is our regular column called Ask a Brazilian”, the idea being that you can quite literally ask a question of a Brazilian – for those issues you aren&rsquot;t sure about but perhaps dare not ask someone else. Mutual understanding and acceptance of cultural differences, or the lack thereof, can sure make or break a cross-cultural relationship!
It is meant as a bit of fun and answers should not be construed as expert opinion or the definitive reply on the matter. Are they conservative (waiting for consummation longer than in the USA)? I am a 29-year-old Brazilian who’s lived in the US from age 15 to 23, so as far as the dating culture in Brazil goes, even though I’ve had a Brazilian boyfriend, I can be quite a gringa.
For that reason we ask you to please send your own comments and experiences in order to add to our replies. I mean a serious courtship and the dating period (length). But a very observant and well rooted one, so I feel confident I can compare and contrast.
suddenly you’re drinking coffee, in a relationship, engaged, married, moving to Australia… If there are some good lines to say, or a perfect time to act, any ideal this and that for Brazilians, I’m afraid I am not aware of any. Maybe some of our readers can find something typically Brazilian when it comes to love? Thanks for your question and good luck, Vanessa Readers comments: Hi, Amy.
