Tough competition: Brazilian men are pretending to be foreign to pick up girls

Brazilians may be known for their sex appeal but during this World Cup, some locals are losing out to the influx of foreigners.

So some Brazilian men are taking action: they are posing as tourists in popular night clubs to try to win the favor of Brazilian women.

According to a column for Folha de Sao Paulo, speaking in bad English or “Portunhol” (a mix of Portuguese and Spanish) or attempting basic greetings in French and Italian have become the pick-up weapons of choice to get Brazilian girls.

The challenge is staying in ‘character.’ And the ruse may not be working as well as it seems.

One woman, 21-year-old student Thais Iwanow, told Folha de Sao Paulo that she has been tricked by a fake foreigner. “I noticed he was faking because of a stupid detail! So I told him to get lost! Now I turn my back on any guy who approaches me speaking English!”

Brazilian women can take comfort in knowing there are only a few more weeks left of World Cup fans flooding the country.
