Ask a Brazilian: Meu Amor

August 21, 2012

This is our regular column called "Ask a Brazilian", the idea being that you can quite literally ask a question of a Brazilian - for those issues you aren't sure about but perhaps dare not ask someone else. It is meant as a bit of fun and answers should not be construed as expert opinion or the definitive reply on the matter. For that reason we ask you to please send your own comments and experiences in order to add to our replies.

Do Brazilian men call their adult sons: "meu amor"? My Bazilian boyfriend ends every tel conversation he has with his adult sons with "beijos meu amor"

-- Faye

PS can you respond by e-mail rather than on the website?


Hi, Faye,

Sorry we can't send private emails, otherwise this column wouldn't exist.

Now answering your question: Yes, "meu amor" is very common, either to adult sons or even (believe me) unknown people.

In the present novela, Avenida Brasil, there‘s a character, Veronica, representing the king of people that call everyone "meu amor". It would be the American "honey", or "darling".

Beijos,

Vanessa Agricola
