Hi all, I was chatting on Skype the other day with a Canadian who now lives here in Brazil and has a Brazilian girlfriend.As I am (once again) experiencing issues with a Brazilian woman, Nick shared this blog post with me.It provides advice to American men regarding dating Brazilian women, and is written by a Brazilian woman currently living in the states who writes under the name Brasil Magic. As I happen to be pretty much the reciprocal of Brasil Magic – an American man living in Brazil – I thought I’d offer up my own thoughts. Today women are dentists and doctors and lawyers and business owners.
Giving advice about dealing with the fairer sex – in particular the fairer sex – is inherently risky. First, I want to echo Brasil Magic’s comment that it’s difficult to generalize too much about “Brazilian women”. Only a couple of generations ago, women were really just getting their footing in the professional workplace. To get an idea of just how much things have changed in the last 20 or 30 years, read this article in National Geographic.
Any “rule” one tries to set forth will inevitably prove wrong at times. Brazil is a huge country, the size of the continental U. I fully expect to take some heat for some of my comments below. Our opinions are shaped by our own personal experiences.
And of course whatever I write, some readers will disagree. I will just say that, while I’ve had some trying experiences here with women, and had my heart broken a couple of times, I can’t go back to First I think an American man (and we can include Canadians and many Europeans in the group) and a Brazilian woman can often form a good couple, a couple that functions.
Much less frequently do you see a functional couple formed of an American woman and a Brazilian man.

I'd talk to women about my hobbies and what I thought was interesting, but I never seemed to get anywhere.
When I was on a date, I'd ask a bunch of questions - because I'm supposed to show interest in her in some way.
Perhaps American women chafe under what they see as lingering perhaps just a bit more so…
But I will again note that, although Brazilian women can sometimes be maddening, I’m hooked. John Still hanging out in Brazil Come visit beautiful Brazil!
Maybe you’ll find the woman you’ve been dreaming of!
Or just come to enjoy the sand, sun, surf, and natural beauty that drew me back again and again.
