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.
But after logging onto Tinder for the first time in two years, being courted by a number of Brazilians and spending time with gringas and Brazilians, I have noticed a couple of things on what it’s like to date a Brazilian man.
Brazilian men have the extraordinary ability to be almost simultaneously a complete gentleman and a complete ass.
Machismo is alive and kicking, at least in Sao Paulo but at the same time there exist a type of respect for women.
