I know I’m way behind in posting some new stuff over here. Traveling & some business kept me going and I lost an eye on time before I knew it. That and writing about Rio, while not staying there seemed strange.
I’m heading to my beloved city in some weeks, so will make sure to add some new stuff on the biog. In the mean while, I digged up an old post I wrote a while ago on a PUA forum. It’s still accurate and hopefully helps some of you when traveling to Rio.
See you in some weeks :)
“All below reflects on women between 18-30. I have (and don’t want to) ANY experience with 40+ dating. I’ll write about this in 20 years.
I’m living in Rio after travelling to more then 50 countries & living in different parts of the world (born in Europe). I’m sure that it’s safe to say that you’ll find a huge number of top looking women in Rio, if it’s not about the best place in the world, especially during summer time. Cariocas will not go out during the day when it’s raining or “cold” (being 18-24°). You’ll have to meet them at night during Rio’s “winter”.
In general Cariocas are really open for conversations, very outgoing and love to touch while talking. there is however an important BUT:
Most beautiful women will try to avoid foreigners, especially the girls out of the mid-to-high-class. The problem is that they don’t want to be connected to prostitution & at the same time believe most foreigners only come to find prostitutes. They also understand that you’ll just stay for a short time, so they believe it’s not worth to invest time in you.
Most of them do speak English – although I have many female friends that while we go out refuse to use it when a foreigner approaches them.
Many foreigners also come with the “I’m rich attitude”. While this helps for the favela dark colored women (“safe me please” attitude) the women living in Ipanema/Leblon/Barra mostly come out of rich families. Trust me, when you are rich in Brazil, you are really rich. This is one of the main remarks I get about foreigners when my female friends talk about them.
The most important thing when approaching Brazilian women (and that counts for the whole country) is to be funny & put on your biggest smile. Don’t try to be the cool guy and for sure don’t wast to much time on buying drinks,… actually, just don’t ! Don’t wast to much time at all, as they’ll loose interest or think you are not interested in them at all. Go for it, be clear & make sure it’s all fun !
Portuguese will help you A LOT! Especially if you go outside the Ipanema/Leblon area where women in general are very approachable & have a very easy game… Area’s I really recommend going to are Gavea (both baixo = hundreds of people drinking & having fun on the street and zero zero for a little up-scale fun). Other areas worth visiting are Botafogo/Flamengo, Lapa (Sundays), Barra and even Niteroi if you hit the right night/club/bar.
I personally like the model types, prefer blonds/brunettes with perfect sizes & up-scale attitude. These girls are mainly living in Ipanema/Leblon/Barra and go out in:
– Boox, Ipanema: TOP nightclub, lots of fun, a little small, pricey, the most beautiful girls 7-8-9’s but you’ll need a good game & style. I wrote an article on this blog about the club.
– Baronetti, Ipanema: famous, girls around 18-24,many 7-8-9’s pricey, especially good on Tuesdays (girls night) & Saturdays/Sundays
– Bar do Copa, Copacabana Palace: Exclusive, women around 25-34, stunning, all looking for a rich husband – you need good game, but if you do…
– Zozo, Urca : Considered one of the best, very beautiful people during the weekend & on Thursdays, people between 25-35y old.
– Nuth, Barra & Lagoa: Nice clubs, famous, some beautiful & good looking women. Portuguese necessary with the 6-7’s. Some 8/9’s but you’ll need your game right. Check the best nights while in Rio. I personally prefer Nuth in Barra.
If you like to meet 6-7 and sometimes some 8-9’s then you can head for Lapa (different clubs & bars there), Baixo in Gavea, Casa Da Matriz, Casa Negra (nice on Tuesdays & Thursdays) and Cobral.. The younger the girl is the easier it will be to approach her. They lack the experience with being used & dumped many times, which is about the natural sport in Brazil.
I recommend to have some local friends to take you out. They’ll know where it’s good to go on any given night & more important, they’ll help you to get rid of your gringo image. I have different styles of friends, from surfers to the higher class Carioca. Depending on the mood, evening & what type of women to meet, you’ll need them to mix in.
Also a typical one: when a girl approaches you or keeps looking to you (eye thing) she’s probably a gringo hunter or working (GDP). Especially during the day, most of the girls in Rio will not look into your eyes as they are used to get every single Brazilian man approaching her immediately (in an annoying way). The Brazilian approach is very direct – kiss within 5 minutes or you’ll be loosing the girl is a famous quote amongst Brazilian man.
Don’t worry to much about safety. Rio is getting cleaned up and much safer then MANY other cities in the US & even some in Europe. Don’t be to gringo and of course, stay in the Zona Sul/Zona West area or go out with locals. Don’t worry a thing about Lapa in the night – but adapt to the very local atmosphere… meaning sneakers/flip-flops, short & t-shirt (except when going to the clubs). It’s far away from upscale but so local & fun if you are in a group. I always take a nice girl 7-8 home after a night in Lapa since I go there with Brazilian friends.”
