They take care of themselves, and expect the same from guys.
Friendliness is key to all Brazilians, and you’ll find it amazingly easy to start a conversation and buy a drink for one of these sensual senoritas, most of whom seem to have a smile permanently lodged on their lips.
In contrast to the frigid customs of northern climes, Latinas and Latinos greet each other with two kisses – one on each cheek – even when meeting for the first time.
If things are not moving forward within the first 10-15 minutes, it won’t go anywhere. If on the other hand, things are progressing nicely, slowly go for a kiss after fifteen or twenty minutes of conversation. Meet her at the beach, go for a drink at Devassa Bar in Ipanema. Many guys get wrapped up in trying to attract the girl by impressing her. It's the best community of its kind on the Internet.
A kiss doesn’t signify intimacy in Brazil, but kissing quickly is normal and is part of the mating ritual. Go to a Hippie Fair in Ipanema on Sunday afternoons, or just grab a coconut juice on the beach. This wouldn’t work in Brazil because above all Brazilian culture is extremely chill, and people value a relaxed atmosphere over a serious or deep conversation.
However, if you go to street parties, and cheaper places, chances are the girls will be more down to earth.
In Rio, Ipanema and Leblon have the most beautiful, but richer girls, while Lapa and Botafogo have more down to earth variety.
So don’t get your knickers in a twist if your date spends a few minutes meeting and greeting her buddies in this alluring manner. Depends upon which part of the USA or Europe we’re talking about.
If we’re thinking about the Latin quarters of New York City, or Latin-inhabited countries such as Mexico, Spain and Italy – then there’s not too much difference.
It also draws in girls who might be tired of the macho-infested culture and are eager for a change. This alone sets Brazil apart from the rest of Latin America.
Signs that a girl is open to dating a gringo, she has lived/travel abroad, she speaks great English, she had/has gringo friends, she hangs out in places where gringos go, etc. If you only speak English, you will most likely meet girls who speak English and have travelled/lived in US (or Europe) and hang out around gringos (see #1 above).
After you get the number, it’s OK to call the next day and schedule a date for the following or same evening.
