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.

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.

Hey ladies, we love you too but we just can’t help fantasizing about these Brazilian girls and let me give you the top 10 reasons to date a brazilian woman.

Brazil is a land widely associated with the Carnivale.

These women are also well-educated and interesting. In the year 2007, half of student populations are composed of women.

The importance of education is highly considered by Brazilian women, they are indeed very intelligent and clever.

Which man has not been bowled over by the exotic beauty of Brazilian women?

Blessed with lustrous hair, dark eyes and skin the color of honey Brazilian women are without doubt, are some of the most gorgeous in the world.

This is one instance where the independent American culture clashes with the dependent Brazilian culture.
