So, if you plan to visit Portugal, practice your South American Spanish, bring kangaroos and a healthy appetite for Portuguese tarts, and leave your ostentation and small dogs at home. You will find yourself at home in no time.

Tinder is a big deal in Brazil: it has one of the largest markets of users in the world, second only to the United States. While Tinder is by far the most used dating app, others are still commonly used such as Bumble and Happn. How many people are using Tinder in Brazil?

In other words, Rio de Janeiro officially has the highest number of active users, with more people using Tinder here than any other place in Brazil. A study of interviews of active users in Rio de Janeiro showed that 72 percent of men used Tinder as a platform to find casual sex, whereas 48 percent of women used it for casual hookups. Just over eight percent of the population of Brazil identify themselves within the LGTB group and using dating apps is a popular way of meeting others and dating.

Right next to a wine glass of Monte Velho or a bottle of Muralhas.
Life abroad can be lonely without a companion. Understanding how Portuguese dating culture works can really help your love life — and who knows, you might just find your ideal partner. Indeed, what you might consider a romantic gesture in one country could be seen as unwelcome or rude in another.
