Dating brazilian girl
But in Brazil, it seems that is in a Facebook relationship if they are in a relationship with someone – my ex-boyfriend said that his friends thought I had something to hide simply because I didn’t want to announce my relationship status on Facebook (in the end, I succumbed).But why should I have to let the entire Facebook world know who I am dating?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.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.
Sometimes I wish that I were less picky when it comes to dating – but unfortunately, it is not easy for me to feel an attraction to someone, actually have enough interest in that person to date them and also have that feeling reciprocated.
From my 5-month relationship with a Brazilian guy to my short time being single in Rio, there are a few things I have learned about dating in Brazil.
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.
Since being in Brazil, I have gotten more used to it, since everyone seems to do it, but it just has always seemed so cheesy and high-schoolish to me.
In the US, the Facebook relationship status is not taken so seriously.
