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.
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.” “But you know that guys are going to hit on you, right? In the US, it is considered normal and healthy to spend time apart from one’s significant other.Americans like to go out with their friends and have “girls nights” – same goes for guys.It also didn't help that the pictures feature only women in a rural setting, and at a costume party.
What really happens is that men from the town work in the factories in the nearby big city of Belo Horizonte.
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.
I remember Carioca men as being incredibly aggressive, and that's certainly their reputation.
But I have noticed now that there are downpours and droughts.
Even when they go out together, Brazilian couples tend to stay attached at the hip.
