I haven’t spent as much time in Brazil, but I believe it’s similar.
Women on international dating sites like Latin American and Russian think templates are normal, and generally won’t respond more quickly just because it’s obvious you read her profile.
I actually spent more time on that site setting up dates for clients and friends that came in town than I did for myself.
If any of the following apply to you, then you probably shouldn’t try out my alternative dating strategy: a) you do not speak the local language; b) you have your eyes set on the long term; c) you won’t be in a Latin American city very soon.
It’s an absolutely amazing country for meeting women online these days, especially if you can speak some Spanish.
Plus, Medellin happens to be a great city to live in, and no Colombian will deny it’s got the country’s most beautiful women.
