But from my 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 everyone is this way).
It is all based on my own experience and what I have heard from other people. And for independent North Americans, can even be considered clingy.
But then I started talking to other female travelers.
On a near daily basis, while I was traveling in Northeastern Brazil, I got compliments on how linda, or beautiful, I am.
It's hard to know why men don' t serenade me any more--maybe I am giving off a jaded, inaccessible vibe now. Brazilian men are legendary for their passion and persistence.
