From then on, he made sure to remind me of that constantly.He made it clear from the start that he felt strongly about me, so I never once doubted his feelings.Even when I first started dating my Brazilian boyfriend, he would always tell me how much he missed me when I was gone.

I find it interesting that in the US, we have a term for publicly showing affection (“PDA”).For me, such effusiveness was a refreshing change from the many tight-lipped Americans guys I have met in the past!Why is it that we Americans are so afraid to show affection in public?Once again, such a word does not exist in the Portuguese language because Brazilians do not make such a big deal out of dating.In the US, dating is often a long, drawn-out process that can get pretty messy.In Brazil, it's so much simpler: If two people like each other and are spending time together, they will normally start to “namorar” (date exclusively) shortly after.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
