The poorer girls may feel their ship has come in if they meet a Western guy.Don’t lead someone on who thinks you might marry them.
You’ll rarely get a rude response if you go and speak to someone.
Some girls will come home with you on the first night, others are just out to flirt and have fun. Some girls are definite gringo-hunters and will hang around the ex-pat nightspots.
A gringa is definitely a novelty but few are looking for a girlfriend.
Relationships take away their principal pleasure in life – hitting on girls.
(Now compare that to gringos I see in the hostel talking to some hippie girl for four hours in the patio without even touching her when you know he wants to hit.
It’s like they’re waiting for the girl to be a man and step up.) The guy who told me his strategy (let’s call him Renato) is from Recife, a city in the northeast.
In Salvador they even pull the girl’s hair towards them.
The guys also wear skimpy swimming costumes and parade around the beach in Speedo swimming trunks.
She didn’t want to dance, instead preferring to stand right underneath the club speaker, and she also didn’t want to move to the quiet, dark alley nearby.
She was asking me questions that I couldn’t hear so on the surface she seemed interested, but to me the situation seemed rather hopeless.
Brazil is very liberal sexually and encounters are taken very lightly.
