Brazilian dating norms
would lighten up about this, it's much easier to share food this way. Monique (US): Y'all aren't living until you've licked grease off your fingers. Erin (US): You will never know the true pleasures of a burger until you place your naked hands on it. Ishmael (Canada): I like this idea, but what happens when there are several people with the same first name? Monique (US): I've been living in the wrong country, my friend.
Buzz Feed Brasil explained Brazilian customs to their colleagues in the United States, Canada, and Mexico and asked them to write the first thing that crossed their minds. This is what they said: Chris (US): That's a commitment to hygiene. (Mexico): LOL, some times I don't take a shower all weekend. (Mexico): Brazil's got a serious case of the germophobia. Elaina (US): HOW MANY TIME HAVE YOU BITTEN INTO THE NAPKINIshmael (Canada): Think of all the grease you won't get on your hands! Monique (US): It further proves that they are a cool laid back group of people who don't bother with such foolishness as titles. Flush that poo away, I mean the bathrooms must smell NASTY! You won't touch your food but you leave poopy toilet paper piled up in the bin? Chelsea (US): I assume this is for plumming reasons and not wanting to clog the toilet. For a nation that seems so hellbent on cleanliness, that's just gross.
Oddly, there also seems to be a Culture of Seriousness that surrounds a ‘traditional date’ over here.
Although most young people have very few concerns about shagging a near-stranger, a lot of Scottish men break into a cold sweat if you ask them out for a coffee.
It's almost as if you're asking them to practically set a wedding date.
This Culture of Seriousness extends into other aspects of Scottish life too.
As such, because of the widely accepted practice of courting, men in Toronto seem more apt at making the first move.
Generally, if you are out somewhere and making hot bedroom eyes with a dude, he is more than likely to attempt and strike up a conversation and hopefully ask you out. The men over here are hopeless at making the first move; I don't know if it's some weird cultural thing that hearkens back to the middle ages, but dudes over here seem completely oblivious.Back in Toronto, men and women – again – meet through friends, work or in a bar/club but that's where the similarities mostly end.Perhaps it's an old puritan tradition that ‘Toronto the Good’ hasn't quite gotten rid of, but folks tend to opt out for the more traditional route of ‘courting’.And I don't care how many times someone says that Scottish men are just shy because I'm shy too.No one actively seeks rejection and heartbreak but, alas, it's a side effect of dating.My friend and I – although sober – went totally NUTS on the dance floor and ** had fun.
