Eran xxx - Brazilian culture men dating

This is the powerful, irresistible lure of the “Brasileiro” (Brazilian man).

Not that I encourage couples to make out for hours in front of me on the subway, but since when did it become a crime to kiss your partner or be publically in love?

I find it interesting that in the US, we have a term for publicly showing affection (“PDA”).

The pressure to establish and label relationships is not as prevalent as it is in the US.

Think about this: In the US, we have actually invented a word for defining the relationship status (“DTR”).

Even after just meeting a girl, I've found that the typical Brazilian man will be very touchy-feely with his new love interest.

With American guys, the lack of affection has often left me wondering what is going on and whether or not he even likes me.There is no word for this in Portuguese because this type of behavior happens constantly; it's expected.Furthermore, being “carinhoso” (affectionate) is integral to Brazilian relationships and the lack of “carinho” (affection) in many American relationships is probably one reason why Brazilians have labeled Americans as “cold.”From the start, my Brazilian boyfriend was super “carinhoso” with me, regardless of whether we were alone or in front of his friends and family.Even when I first started dating my Brazilian boyfriend, he would always tell me how much he missed me when I was gone.He would rave about how beautiful he found me to be, send me romantic song lyrics and just weeks after we started dating, he told me he loved me. So, American guys, listen up: While the Brazilian society is far from perfect, there are definitely a few things that you could all stand to learn from your South American counterparts when it comes to wooing a girl. One thing I love about Brazilian guys is that they don’t beat around the bush.
