    The forum section is called “Romance”, the guy is not offending anyone or saying anythign improper…

    Why giving him this hard time?

    Or if this kind of post is not proper for gringoes.com then I would like Steelrat to include this in “read this first”…not forum users simply being unpleasant to anyone that posts.

    Steelrat, psl let me know the site position on this kind of post.

  • #66345

    I thought it was for discussing relationships but I don’t see why it can’t also be a dating room if that is what is wanted. Okay!nevergoingback39192,4821296296

    Nevergoing back, I see you edited your message… I saw what you wrote originally.

    Sorry guys, I love you all… but I think the treatment giving to the guys was unnecessary.

    I don’t care what goes on on forum Romance, but if this kind of post is not tolerated by gringoes.com site and community I think the rules needs to be clear in Read This first and avoid unnecessary embarrassment for newcomers.

    I edited it becuase I agree with you Monica – he sent me a private message and now believe him to be genuine. His profile says Algeria yet he says he lives in the States so I took him for a pimp touting for girls. He also advertised in another forum off topic so this only compounded my concern that it was a dude spamming us. I guessed wrong! Sorry.nevergoingback39192,4950462963

    Do you feel capable of operating their schools? What’s the curriculum? You could always find someone to team up with that is.

  • #66447

    I’m capable, yes. I grew up right smack in the middle of it all, so I doubt I would have any actual trouble with it. But that is exactly the problem. I know how it works, inside out, been hearing about it, seeing it, helping out just about every day of my life, somehow. I want some distance from it. When I was 18 they offered I start slowing taking over but I wanted to go to college for Radio & Television, which is what I am doing now. Despite numerous offers of taking over different areas of the schools (just the finances, just the children`s program, just the marketing, etc.) I just don’t want to. It has nothing to do with tv, radio, movies… and that’s what I want right now. I could have a nifty lil salary working with them and eventually taking over, but right now it’s just not worth it. -shrugs- I need to get away from all that first before I bury myself in it. Mom and dad really want me to take over because I’m the one with the most… connection with the schools, if that makes any sense, but really, that’s not what interests me right now. I still help them out in special projects, teach a substitute class here or there, give them some ideas and what not, but I don’t want ownership.
    Ah, it’s just a languages school – teach english and spanish there.

    Yeah I understand what you mean. I owned a Janitorial Service for a period of 8 years and was making really good money, but I got burned out. I sold it and then started a Carpet Cleaning service and a Facilities Services company. I made about $80K in my first year, then 9/11 hit New York. Now I work for a City nearby, but want to start something else. I just encourage you to really consider that opportunity. Though you’ve done it most of your life, in one way or another. I wish you the best in whatever you decide, but a million people would love to be in your shoes. Nothing compares to working for yourself. Especially since you already know the business.

    I know I know I know. Some people say I’m crazy, but I’m not. I’m 21 years old, I think I deserve some time to do other stuff first, work for other people, other businesses, see what I like and what I don’t before deciding what to do for the rest of my life. Owning a business is one hell of a commitment… It would be super easy and super safe for me to just step into my parents’ shoe, but safe and easy was never my first choice for much of anything really… I am aware of the fact that I have a wonderful opportunity staring me in the face, but people also have to realize that I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I just did this because my parents told me so, or just cuz it’s nice and easy, as far as choices go. Bah. I have way too much to experience first before I go back to the land where my parents roam. Hehehehe.

    I can respect that. So what is it you plan to do in TV? Or what is your ultimate goal in life?

  • #66455

    gillouuk
    Member

    My ultimate goal in life is be a major reference in educational/social media content – tv, film, radio, internet, whatever (ok, my parents rubbed off on me a little, ok??). But I’m down with doing anything in the independent area – such as movies, trying to come up with innovations to pre-exisiting formats… I’m very much into social causes, stuff that might have some intelectual value some day, not just empty entertainment, and fluff. Wanna own my own production company some day, and really, I do want to have my parents school as well, own it but have someone else there in charge all day so that I can run my production company as well.

    That’s very interesting. It would be very smart to have the school as well. Like you said just have someone else run it. Just make sure whoever runs it builds a high level of integrity. Always audit whatever someone else does. I like that you are so ambitious. Write yourself some realistic goals, then be diligent at achieving them.

  • #66458

    hehehe, of course i’d still be keeping my eye on whoever is runnings the schools. no way i would have someone i dont trust doing that. I love the schools and the last thing I want is to be responsible for ruining it!
    I am a bit ambitious yes… but I do like to take things calmly too. It would be a few years until I handed over the majority of the control of the schools to someone else, it will also be a while until I start paying more attention… I need to at least graduate college so that I actually have time to consider that at all. But I think that when the time comes, I’ll be good at making sure things go right.
    So no one else on the forum owns a business or wants to own one?

    Unless your experience is with running businesses in Brasil you are likely to do a lot more learning than sharing on starting a business in Brasil. A general rule told to me by a Brazilian is to divide by 100 on your experiences outside of brasil helping you within brasil – so if your 15 years of experience is all outside of brasil it’s worth about .15 years in brasil.
    For most gringoes it is easier to make it in a business in their native country but there are always exceptions, so if you do start a business in brasil good luck!

    1. About the women, I didn’t see if someone else already said it, but my suggestion would be to come to Brazil first, and first make some guy friends. The guys can take you out to the best places and maybe hook you up directly.
    2. About the business, it’s good to be an optimist, but things are very different in Brazil than in America. Everything that Floripasurfer mentioned is true, even though he left out the really nasty realities like tremendously different employment laws and stifling tax rates (like ICMS and the CPMF + some others). And don’t forget that Uncle Sam is going to want to want a piece too, especially if you are profitable, even if you are an independent contractor.

    I think our advice was some other brazilians sites just for dating, but I do think yours makes the most sense, at least to get in a “real” relationship, if that makes any sense. But then they have to find guys that know how get girls and what not. For example, my guy friends would suck at taking anyone out to meet girls. Or to meet anyone at all. Heck, I think I‘d be better at getting someone a girl then some of my own guy friends would.

    Oh that is so true. My parents are always complaining about that sort of stuff. It‘s just so many taxes. There is also the DARF and other stuff… Cuz there is the taxes you pay to the city, and the taxes you pay to the state, and the taxes you pay to the country… not to mention that here even just opening a company is about as painful and slow as having a friggin’ baby, if you do it the correct way and not… get some help here and there, if ya know what I mean. And then you have to learn all the tricks, the jeitinho brasileiro of running things.

    I know of a few guys that sound like your friends, but usually with enough alcohol, people will do anything, even if they are shy. But the vast majority of Brazilian guys I know have no fear at all. I think it’s just part of the culture.
    BUT then again, your guy friends could be acting like Sao Pedro around you, and at nightfall, the little devils come out. I’ve seen that a lot to in Brazil.

    When they are with me at nightfall, they are still little scared mice. 😛 i’ll send them your way so that you can bring them out of their shells a little. maybe i just found the few brazilians that don’t have that attack gene when it comes to wooing the ladies.

    That is so true. And it is even worse in college parties with an open bar. Not only are they cross-eyed, spitting at you, and with terrible breath, but half of them are already going waaaaaay beyond that and tripping on themselves and puking all over the place. Although it is funny for us sober ones to see them in college the next day and remember all the stupid silly things they did, or all the debauchery they were involved with (sometimes you see some crazy crazy things…) . It’s bizarre. Part of the reason why I rarely go to college parties.

    It doesn’t take all of them to be like that. I can only compare it to the US where that hardly happens at all, and a guy will be dying in solitude if he doesn’t make the first move. Besides, it’s not a bad thing for a woman to make a move, what does that have to do with self-respect?

    It’s one thing to say that it is ok for women to make the first move. The other one is to imply that women here just go for any guy that doesn’t look half bad. Saying a guy doesn’t even have to have any game if he has some looks sounds like you are implying we will just go for nearly anything for the sake of looks, and that we don’t care if there is more to a guy. It is, in my opinion, lack of self-respect, to throw yourself at any guy just because he is cute, and him not even having to have to do anything to get the girl. Anyone that desperate does lack self-respect. So basically, that was a heavy blanket statement that pretty much said we are desperate, superficial, and easy. So yea, having self-respect includes not showcasing that sort of quality.

    Haha, keggers are a little different tho. That’s about as enjoyable as when you get approached by the cross-eyed boys with puke stains on their shirt at the college parties here. What I was talking about is my experience of really nice, (apparently) sober and attractive women approaching guys in Brazil to chat them up, and no, I don’t mean professionals either.

    I can see how that may have come across the wrong way. I’m not talking about women throwing themselves at any half-decent looking guy, I’m talking about women coming up to you and start a conversation if you don’t do it first. That’s not desperate or lacking self-respect, it is confident. It happens everywhere, but I’ve witnessed it more frequently in Brazil than elsewhere I’ve been.

    Supermary.. I NEVER have any girls that have tried to come onto me in Brazil. Ok… I have, but it RARE. But I see that way with most guys– I think that the girls EXPECT the guys to go talk to them. At least that’s what I’ve always seen.
    I like it in Brazil how you flatter a Brazilian woman, she really likes it. American women show it in a different way. Ahh.. he11, I’m not exactly a huge admirer of American women. I think that all of the stuff there went to their heads, and a bunch of them are screwed up as a result.
    Hahahah, you were talking about SUPER DRUNK guys. There’s a limit, we call it a BUZZ in English. When you hit that level, it’s good. No need to keep going. Most people don’t know when to stop though. I’ve never quite understood that— Too much Alcohol & men and picking up women just doesn’t mix well, especially if they’re going to 3rd, 4th base, etc..
    HAha, I’m starting to wonder what everyone looks like on here. You should send a pic. sometime. OK.. everyone, feel free to send your pics to me.. hahaha. (I’m not joking.. I’m the real deal.)

    In my sinlge days (not anymore, very happy with dear hubby thank you very much ) I saw no problem at all in showing interest (in an elegant, nice way) .

    Something simple as just trying to talk to him, little attitudes and looks… the vibe… hard to explain…you just show you are interested and of course the guys notice that…

    Not running after someone, this is not nice for boys or girls…

    How do american women not like compliments? Do they just go psycho on you if you compliment them?
    [/QUOTE]

    They don‘t go psycho but they will lose a little respect for you and start thinking there are better guys out there. I mean, not in every case, but if you just spend all your time saying nice things about a girl they will lose interest in you pretty quick.

    There’s a fine line between complimenting and appearing needy. No woman likes a needy guy, but you may be right that Americans are particularly aversed to it. A well placed compliment here and there, packaged in a witty way (i.e. NOT “nice rack, baby”) goes a long way in most places around the world (allthough there are cultures where overt compliments are considered too blunt and you have to dance around it even more). I haven’t yet experienced a real difference in the reaction between Brazilian girls and Americans, but that is certainly tainted due to my pathetic Portuguese, and them not that used to hearing English.

    I used to hate that when I was younger, but these days I think of it as a perfectly reasonable attitude. It’s the status quo anyway, so no point in lamenting, and in the end this is good for us guys, too. I would think it can get very annoying getting constantly hit on by god knows who if you’re an attractive woman (especially if you’re not single). I have some female friends who complain about that a lot, and even go as far as going out to gay bars just to avoid the onslaught of wild hogs oozing with testosterone. At least we can pick and choose who we want to approach

    Also, if you happen to be even a little insecure, you will start to wonder if the guy who constantly gives compliments really likes you and is being honest or is just blowing smoke up your ass to get something from you.

    Drunk guys seem to be the worst offenders–they have no inhibitions (good) but at the same time this means they have no filter on what they say to women (very bad).

    Are those American women that you’re referring to? ‘Because it sounds exactly like something an American woman would do/say. Then the very next day, they’re going to be bitching about not being able to find a boyfriend!! American women have NEVER made any sense to me. I guess that’s why I appreciate/enjoy the Brazilians practical nature. If they like, they like. If they don’t, then they don’t. If an American woman has “relationship woes” then I pity them .00001%, which is basically nothing.
    Your friends should be greatful that they are pretty enough that guys try to talk to them. I’d be tempted to remind them that there’s gonna be a day when probably no guy is going to look at them…

    I’m telling you, I know some super-hotties in Brazil. I mean, if those women look better than 98% of the “good looking” girls from other countries, but I’ve never once heard those women complain about being hit on. They may not like the guy, but I’ve never heard them be rude or complain about it.
    Maybe it has something to do where I live… the female population is much larger than the male population, so they’re happy to get the attention, as long as the guys are at least respectful about it.

    Yeah, they’re American, and they do indeed complain sometimes about having a hard time finding the “right” guy. As I’m not a woman I have absolutely zero idea what this would be like, and dare not speak on their behalf. Unlike you however, I sympathize with their situation. I mean it would probably be fun for a little bit to get hit on whereever I go, but if the signal to noise ratio sucks it will likely get annoying after a while. My friends, and from what I have experienced many other girls as well, tend to put up the “bitch shield” whenever someone is hitting on them to deflect the majority of approaches, but unfortunately what this does is that it filters out all the “nice guys” while it is seen as a challenge to the machos to try even harder or get abusive. And then they complain about not being treated nicely…
    P.S. I’m sorry for turning this into a discussion about American girls, but I’m curious how this compares to Brazil. Anecdotes from our female Brazilian board members are very much appreciated

    I knew it!!! They definitely sounded like Americanas. That’s why I’ve never had a single American serious girlfriend in my life, either. One minute they complain about not being able to find any guys, and the next minute they are rejecting the guys. I’ve NEVER understood that. I think that the last good generation of American women ended with the babyboomers. Not all– there’s gotta be some decent/smart/somewhat-logical/practical American women out there– I just never met them. (I’m a Gen-X’er, myself.)
    That being said, I’ve tried and tried and tried to beg my American/European GUY friends to come/go to Brazil; I’ve even offered to buy plane tickets for a couple of them, but they are all too scared. I can flat-out guarantee them that the can find much nicer, prettier women in Brazil, even if I have to introduce them myself. I even show them videos and pictures of parties and get-togethers, but they are still reluctant. I’m about to give up on them.
    So for the American guys too, I have ,00001% pity for them if they say that they can’t get a girlfriend, or at least a hot girlfriend. They know where they have to go

    I can assure you that this sweeping generalization bears no resemblance to the truth. I have not a lot of sympathy for guys who complain about not being able to pick up (American) girls either, but I don’t think they have to goto Brazil to find someone. It’s not the women’s fault but mostly the guys’. For one thing, bars are among the worst places to meet someone, and yet that’s the only place most guys try (usually in conjunction with liquid courage). I don’t claim to understand American or any other kind of women (impossible as they don’t seem to understand themselves), but common sense and experience tells me it’s far better to approach someone when the defenses aren’t already on maximum alert. I would be very surprised if this is really that different here in Brazil.

    I beg to differ about American girls.
    I had it made up in my mind to leave America, again, before I ever met someone in Brazil. I didn’t pull a dating-site deal either, or hook-up with the first girl that I met in Brazil either. I spent 4 years back in America to finish my degree(s), and thought about leaving every single day. I couldn’t stand the American arrogance (even though I do hold an American passport).
    I’m sorry for them, but from the comments that you made about your American girlfriends, they are just downright arrogant and ungrateful. I didn’t make their comments, only my interpretation of what you mentioned. But they sound like the vast majority of girls that I knew back in America, whether they were girls that I met, or girls that I worked with. So it’s no big deal. I never attempted to change anyone’s behavior or try to inject them with humility; I just left.
    But since you mentioned bars/dating, I have to say that I think that the whole dating-deal in America is just warped. I saw people going to churches to meet people. I’m sorry, but that’s just wrong.
    Regarding MY friends that I mentioned 2/3 get just about any girls that they want. I’ve had some wild times with them in the past, and would like to show them the best that Brazil has to offer. They are reluctant to come here because they think that all of Brazil is AS dangerous as the favela in Rio. And no, only one of the guys I was referring to is American. Can you see? I’m about the most non-American-American that you’ll ever discuss anything with.
    And…
    However, because you mentioned “coming to Brazil to meet women” — I can say that a lot of guys on here came down here FOR women, so I give them two thumbs up. They grabbed their b@lls and made the plunge. Not everyone is capable of doing something like this. To me, that takes b@lls, like Skydiving.
    Good luck!

    B-E-L-I-E-V-E It! Are you in Brazil now??? Do you speak Portuguese? All of the people that I know in Brazil are 10000x more sociable than Americans, and especially Europeans. But that’s a cultural difference. As a result, it’s all-to-easy to meet someone that wants to introduce you to someone else, and so-on and so-forth. It’s the same principle as anywhere else, just greatly amplified in Brazil because of the sociability.
    I also notice that groups tend to bump into each other often… and of course, people tend to be more comfortable around people they already know and/or people that they know through someone else.

    I guess I’m just really lucky with all of my experiences in Brazil. Thank goodness!

    That makes sense. That is indeed the same everywhere, and also holds true for America. It’s about the defenses being down when you’re introduced to someone through someone else you already know and trust. I am in Brazil right now and have made similar experiences, and the explanation of bigger social circles automatically leading to more introductions seems reasonable. What I’m not so sure about is whether or not Brazilian girls also have a “bitch shield” when approached by strangers. Given the macho culture around here it seems that attractive women should have even more reason to get annoyed. I have not really encountered this so far but I put it off to being a gringo and therefore at least briefly sparking some curiosity (or maybe that’s pity, haha).

    Hi,
    I think that the comment about American girls hit the nail on the head definitely in the case of UK girls. I remember I was out in Madrid on the street with some friends and one of them saw this gringa, and so he “tiró un piropo”, nothing offensive, something like “hola guapa!”. It’s a good job he can’t understand any English, because I caught what she said under her breath “oh, just f**k off!”
    The arrogance! I sometimes think that people in the UK need to put other people down in order to feel better themselves. There is less free conversation on the streets, and I think that people’s lives are worse off for it. In the UK we are not very social animals (sure, when they have a drink, there are lots of VERY funny people) but the general impression I have after 8 years abroad is that it has become a colder place. I’m glad to be leaving.

    Nancee, I agree, it is a stereotype. In one of my posts (hhaha, many), I DID acknowledge in my posts that there ARE some good ones– I just never had the opportunity to meet them.
    It just seems like there’s a huge disconnect from my mother’s generation to the younger generation. My mother wasn’t some ultra-conservative meek woman either. She used to be an entrepreneur, a hard worker, and very careful about money before she decided that she didn’t want/need to work anymore. But she doesn’t have this ungrateful attitude of the younger ones today. This is equal opportunity, so I saw the same bad qualities in the younger men too– just a little more to a higher degree with women. I guess that’s why I like living abroad 🙂
    (( And, I have met a few people who have these same qualities in Brazil, but I don’t associate with them.. that’s my choice…))
    Well BigFace, this thread has really gone off. Don’t come to Brazil *** TRYING *** to meet the love of your life. (But I will tell you that you are “generally” looking in the right direction.)
    Come to Brazil and enjoy the country for what it has– and to take a vacation. If you’re lucky, things will fall into place.

    I can sense your frustration. Hey, I spent 4 years back in America andhated every minute of it because people are too distanced/cold for me. Girls think that they are always being stalked. (someof them actually are, unfortunately.) In fact, I can give you real statistical data from polls which prove America IS based upon a culture of fear. (George Bush only made things worse, in my opinion.) How is that healthy?People have to live!
    In Brazil, I see more people “living”– and since I associate with mostly middle-class people, they LIVE A LOT, and they don’t have to worry about where the next meal is coming from.
    Social skills? All you have to do is three main things:
    1) Speak Portuguese (download the free FSI courses!)
    2) Get out of the gringo areas
    3) Talk, socialize, and have a good time.
    It’s that easy.

    Even where I live, it’s very very quiet, thank God! Even in the roughest parts of town, there’s an occaisonal murder, but it’s rare, and maybe a couple per month. The local newspaper can even break down all of the crimes by neighborhoods per thousands of residents.
    The only downside to living in a nice quiet place like where I live is that there’s no industry, few jobs, and the jobs that are here pay really poorly. But most people I’ve talked to are happy to keep the quiet instead of making a few hundred more R$ per month.

    [/QUOTE] Ay let’s get it right. Not everyone in America is crazy violent. The problem with the murder rate is more related to ‘Corporation Hiring’ prejudice. And it spreads further than that, into the schools, the prude attitude that one race is superior over others[not fair]. And just like now, not everyone agrees with the dumn ass president we have. Even his own party doesn’t agree with half of the bullsh*t he comes up with. I grew up in a once ‘murder capital’ city and I wouldn’t change my up bringing. We didn’t have much, but I was ambitious and starting cutting lawns and other entrepreneurial stuff. Also the pressures that exist here are more related to the media. They push negative news, and promote unnecessary competition. Amongst races, shades, income, materialism, etc. All those things don’t mean a thing to God almighty. Arrogance is a sin, plain and simple. Prejudice, Segregation, and Hate are all sins.

    I sometimes wish I had grown up in a more quiet environment, but when life get’s dealt out we don’t get a choice. So with my life experiences I still very optomistic, even in the midst of idiotic leadership.

    BigFace, where did u grow up at? NO or DC?– because I know both those cities hit the top of the lists one year or another, and I’ve lived in both of those cities.
    I can tell you about Brazil is that things are VERY different here regarding the races. There seems to be nothing wrong with making subtle, non-offensive, entendres or jokes about someones race, color, weight, height, appearance. It’s a two-way (multi-way, really) street, so NO ONE is left out of the jokes/humor. They go poke-fun at everyone. No one is left out.
    The Brazilians seem to be much more practical about life. People don’t jump at the slightest comment. Even with me, I’ve had a lot of people “just say what they are thinking..” without thinking twice, so I can definitely say that people aren’t so polite and politically-correct in Brazil *AS* America. For me, it took a little getting used to it.
    Sven: about the violence here, even when I was pointing out – what I think is a common underestimation of the violence in America, I don’t wanna jinx myself and say that it’s safe where I live now. Sure, s**t happens here too. If anything, the events that happened in Virginia prove that the worst things can happen to the best people at any time, at any place in the world. But living in a gated community with security cameras, concertina wire, and a 24 hour guard, make things just a little safe, I hope.

    I would say not all Americans are that materialistic. Its what you see in movies and in TV series. I would say the poor people that account for 30-40% is very laid back with not too materialistic views. Well maybe because they cant be materialistic. I have had average middle class Americans visiting me and they have all been very stingy with their money. It might be because they dont have the means to have a good time here. Our minimum wage is well above the average wage in the US.
    Also most middle class Americans are nice people and very helpful. I know from the time I went to school in the US.

    FromNorway,
    It’s nice to have those “feel good” moments about places, huh? How much did you get around in the USA? You’re right about the minimum wage there. It’s extremely low. The average “household” income for a US family now is in the low 40k’s. Even then, it’s barely enough to live on and definitely not enough to have a great life there.
    That being said, 40k+/USD in Brazil will go substantially further, especially because food and housing is generally less expensive, in dollar-terms. But ditto for someone in Brazil as in America, if the Brazilian is making R$1,000/month– barely enough to live on.

    Hello vinnyvendetti,
    I lived in the US for 4 years minus Christmas and Summer when I went home. I went to school in the Minneapolis area. Funny since its the main area for Norwegian settlements in the US. During the 4 years I travel to Chicago, stayed in New Orleans and partyed, stayed in Las Vegas for 6 days plus went to the Grand Canyon with my dad etc, went to Winnipeg Canada several times. I got to see several places in the midwest since friends brought me home to their house for thanksgiving etc.
    Here in Norway this kind of behavior is not that usual. Its hard to get invited home liked I got in the US. We are usually not that outgoing. Also it was nice because people in this area are very proud of their heritage and they know how many per cent Norwegian and Scandinavian they are etc. They have several Scandinavian gatherings, (that I missed).

    Don’t you just love sweeping generalisations like this

    I’ve been with my brasileira wife for 3 years now. She doesn’t get jealous at all about me appreciating the beauty of many Brasilian women. (As long as I don’t touch of course!!! )

    She says that if I didn’t notice them I’d be either blind or gay – and I’m neither!!!

    P.S. it works the other way too!!!

    [QUOTE=Nancee]Fear is the way to control the masses. It’s big now in the US. [/QUOTE]

    Have you noticed how fear has changed since the Berlin wall came down? Now the focus has changed from Russia and the cold war to almost anything that can control, we have had over head power lines (now we use magnetic bands around our wrists??), Y2k event that never happened, salmonela in eggs etc etc. The biggest con is global warming caused by increased carbon dioxide and not by the sun!! I could write pages on this backed up by learned data but it would take up too much space here.

    Yes fear is how the masses are controlled, how they keep paying their taxes & how they keep within the econmic structures.

    That really does seem like a negative generalization. I think Brasilians in general have an appreciation for different cultures. I think that they tend to embrace what makes us different instead of dwelling on them. With anyone, I think when you, meet a tourist or student or what every you call them, in a social situation, it’s human nature to ask yourself questions about them. I think we see something different, and we wonder if that fit into our thoughts of what appealing to us.
    I’ve traveled to Brasil for several years and some how always end up meeting a woman. It has been at a pub, the mall, the beach, and the supermarket. They were great people to know, and I still keep in contact with them. I think they just thought my Portuguese was funny, and they felt sorry for me. But this time, I’ve met what I think is the most wonderful woman. It’s funny because she can’t figure out why I like her so much. She’s a single mom w/ a 12y/o son, what could I possible want with her. I think there’s something there, but only time will tell. I go back to the states in two more weeks.
    Anyway, I just think we should be careful when we make generalizations about foreign men and Brasilian women.

    You seem to be nice, but the thing is everyone would say it’s a nice person with very good intentions. Sorry I trust not trusting you, that’s life, I’m sorry. I’m brazilian and love people from other countries since I talk to them everyday from work.

    Hi, I’m brazilian and would say about your posting that I trust you not trusting you. Sorry everyone one would say it’s nice in internet. I love people from other countries for the cultural differences. I deal with people from latin america countries and americans everyday because of my work here in Brazil. We could talk.Smile

    Is she a troll or what? These past few days it’s been hard to keep score. It’s worse than skipping a couple of days of one of the novelas.

    No one knows yet. She wants to make foreign friends (and then marry one), but refuses to show her face (if she is real, it wouldn’t be any trouble for her to go to our meet up, now would it? we are a bunch of nice people, most are foreigners, seems like her cup of tea), is looking for true love, but apparently won’t get offline to do it… but the whole white horse thing freaks me out.

    As far as meeting Brazilian girls the bigger problem is avoiding them. I’m no oil painting but had a number of girl friends when I lived in Rio even before I had learned any Brasileiro. Must be the climate.

    Re:the violence , arrogance and casual racism in the US , i had my american cousin visiting recently and we were discussing her time at college in Boston , when she goes off on one about how Latinos are getting scholarships while she has to pay.
    It never occured to her that its not Americans subsidising poor Latinos, but poor Latinos subsidising Americans in the fact that white middle class Americans get cheap Latino domestic labour at a fraction of the cost it would take to employ an American worker.
    So maybe she should vent her frustration at tight fisted upper middle class Americans who dont want to pay a decent wage and/or are too lazy to wipe their own arse.
    But having said that when i was in new york for my cousins marriage I was made extremly welcome in anybody’s house who i visited.
    On the other hand when I was living in the Czech republic anytime I encountered Americans and happened to mention that I worked on the French help desk at IBM their immediate response was ” I f***ing hate the French” , despite the fact they had never actually visitied France, and I thought to myself is it this acceptable to hate African Americans or Jewish people ?
    Its weird , you watch The Sopranos and that gives the impression that black and white people hate each other, then you watch The Wire and see that everybody seems to rub along together quite well.
    I dont know what proportion of the population believe Bill O Reilly when he tells them to hate the French ,just cos France didnt want to join in the killing spree in Iraq .
    I know media brainwashing isnt particular to Americans, was talking to this white geezer from the south east of England when I said “God you could live well here (in Czech republic) on UK welfare cheques” and he retorted ” I probably wouldn get it , I’m not black ,lesbian or gay” , couldve been staright out of the Daily Mail, a voluntary Richard Littlejohn lobotomy.
