Brazilian dating tips
This was a fairly novel concept to my ex – because in Brazil, it’s strange to go out without one’s significant other – the guy knows that his girlfriend will likely get hit on and cannot stand that.
I have heard that if one goes out without their boyfriend or girlfriend in Brazil, it sends the message to other people that they are single.
My ex-boyfriend and I only waited 10 days after meeting to become an official couple – and I remember he said that was a long time for him (he was trying to be patient because I’m American).
Keep in mind that some of this may be a bit generalized (obviously not is this way); the opinions shared are simply based on my own experience and observations. And for independent North Americans, can even be considered clingy.
Even when they go out together, Brazilian couples tend to stay attached at the hip.
I had to remind my boyfriend to give me some space when we went out together – telling him that I would want to mingle with friends and other people, independent of him – I would remind him to “be more American” whenever we went out.
If another guy touched me when I was with him (Brazilians are super touchy-feely!
), my ex became super upset and agitated – which I actually found to be quite sweet.
While I do think a little bit of jealousy is healthy in a relationship – it shows that the person cares – I found that Brazilians tend to be jealous to an unhealthy level.
