A simple man dating lisbon
That talk will happen and girls see for themselves if you're worth talking to, but in Portugal they won't even give you that chance.
So I agree that girls here are more insecure and take a LONG time before they decide to take it any further." Again, mentality wise, there is a huge difference between people from Lisbon and Porto, the latter being cooler, more open and generally prettier. I only visited the Lisbon area back in 2010 (when I had no Portuguese knowledge) but the women tended to be very receptive towards foreigners though I'm not all that attracted to them in return.
Not necessarily by catholic values in the sense that they follow church rules by the book, but their values is still shaped very much by their mothers and grandmothers, who in large part still obey these traditional values, including girls should not be very active in the dating scene.
So they'll give you the cold shoulder because in their minds that's the right thing to do or other people might start to talk about you.
But winters there, although not too cold, are cold, nevertheless. In the winter, most of the few young girls from there are either studying in universities in other cities of Portugal or are just working abroad.
In the winter, that Estonian guy will probably see more British and Scandinavian retirees there than young Portuguese girls.
You have a sense that girls in non-catholic countries are a wee bit more open to talk with you, whether or not you're a douchebag.
PS: this guy's spelling and abusive use of "lol" reminds me of the great GBFM. Who knows what his game's like, and the average Estonian dude certainly has none.
If you're on CS, try to read the whole thread, because it truly is hilarious.
