Dating a brazilian
In Brazil, the beaches are hot and the people famously attractive.
However, dating takes a slow trajectory that includes a long engagement and other traditional trappings.
Brazilian dating culture starts in the teens and is punctuated by friendly fun, casual meetings and a relaxed attitude.Men might play soccer with their buddies in the afternoon, women might have a coffee and go shoppping with their female friends but they do not go out at night and leave their partner alone at home.No strip clubs for men in committed relationships either.Here are some general pointers (which I repeat may not apply to all Brazilian women): 1) . People tend to live close to Mom and Dad, aunts and uncles. Divorce rates unfortunately are growing, so this may change. Children live with their parents until they get married.
It is also a matriarchal society (although men had the power for generations, when it comes to raising kids, mothers are considered more important than fathers). That of course makes kids closer to their parents, and affects how they see their future family as well. Married people or people in committed relationships do not go out on “Boys Night Out” or “Girls Night Out” where they can flirt with other people.
Fearing I was about to be stood up, I called to check everything was OK.
