Dating practices in brazil
The conclusion: the rules of love and dating apply to men and women. (Just like there’s no shame in hugging friends, or telling people you miss them, or wearing skimpy bathing suits. That is something she's going to have to deal with, at least in the beginning while they're still getting to know each other or move on I explained.
However, I've been the object of desire of some persistent men. Here’s the thing: in many (though not all) Brazilian circles, making out in public is more or less the equivalent of getting someone’s number. Later in the evening she received a text from another potential partner asking her what her availability was like next week. Things are too planned and professional for her liking here.
) In my experience, the public caressing and kissing is a non-American thing not just a Brazilian thing.
Any “rule” one tries to set forth will inevitably prove wrong at times. Brazil is a huge country, the size of the continental U. I fully expect to take some heat for some of my comments below. Our opinions are shaped by our own personal experiences.
And of course whatever I write, some readers will disagree. I will just say that, while I’ve had some trying experiences here with women, and had my heart broken a couple of times, I can’t go back to First I think an American man (and we can include Canadians and many Europeans in the group) and a Brazilian woman can often form a good couple, a couple that functions.
This leads to what American journalist and former São Paulo resident Seth Kugel has called the “get a room culture.” Kugel recently wrote an op-ed piece describing how he deals with this issue when dating a Brazilian.
I guess that explains the Censiv Motel in São Paulo.
