Anna94 wants to trade nude pics with you. Do you accept?
Latrese Williams of Another Single Sister recently wrote a pivotal blog entry about dating as a Black woman abroad.
However, whenever Williams found herself miles away from American soil, her love life was filled will late nights and sensual early mornings. I am a tech company IPO. I am first round of investor funding secured.
Many of these men are handsome, charming, employed, eager, and then the accents? To gather more insight on this topic, I reached out to a close friend of mine, Lauren Powell, who lived in Brazil for seven months and asked about her opinions on finding love abroad.
MadameNoire : What has been your experience dating in your hometown?
Are you better at attracting love abroad?
Almost like an aggressive stare down and see who talks first contest. And frankly it was annoying for me.
MN : Do you think American dating is different from dating abroad? LP : American dating is definitely different from dating abroad.
Being a black woman abroad
Different set of values, different girl and guy codes. MN : One woman claims American men are lazy and men abroad put forth more effort, do you agree or disagree? And why? LP : I agree and disagree. So you have to factor in where are you meeting these men, how long are you there? In my case, I was living in Brazil, so I had a chance to see the actual dating culture and from that experience I will say that the culture breeds men who are polite and into chivalry.

They believe in paying for the first date and not going dutch like in the states. Overall, I do think men abroad put forth more effort. MN : Did men approach you differently in Brazil in comparison to men in your hometown? LP : Yes I felt like it was an approach of a genuine appreciation and not an objectified one.
I feel objectified in the United States but in Brazil I felt proud to be a curvy black woman with my natural hair. MN : Should Black women from America, specifically, be skeptical about dating men from other countries?
MN : Do you think Black women can find the love of their lives abroad? LP : Certainly!
Especially in warm, receptive cultures like Northern Brazil. Boa Sorte good luck ladies!
