Brazil culture dating
In Brazil, it’s so much simpler: If two people like each other and are spending time together, they will normally start to “namorar” (date exclusively) shortly after.
My Brazilian boyfriend and I only waited 10 days after meeting to become an official couple.
From then on, he made sure to remind me of that constantly.
He made it clear from the start that he felt strongly about me, so I never once doubted his feelings.
Speaking on behalf of the majority of women, however, it is so much more gratifying to be with a guy who is affectionate and not afraid to display that affection in (gasp! Everything is much more relaxed in Brazil, including dating.
There is just something about them that always seems to pull me in -- can you blame me?
I admit that a fair share of Brazilian men have entranced me.
We both liked each other and did not want to be with anyone else, so we didn’t bother to delay something we both wanted.
When recently talking to a Brazilian friend who lives in the US, she told me she had to make it clear to the American guy she had just started seeing that she was not going to tolerate the typical pre-relationship BS.There is no word for this in Portuguese because this type of behavior happens constantly; it's expected.
