1. We have been romantically separate.
We have been like a variety of Amor de PerdiГ§ГЈo by Camilo Castelo Branco, Os Maias by EГ§a de Queiroz, a couple of soaps we view during the night, and an extended lineage of strong, hardworking women that went the home, raised kids, and fed these with the little cash their husbands delivered! Therefore donвЂ™t be surprised when we like you) dying to hold your hand if we know how to fix the plumbing while. Deeply inside we’re extremely intimate.
2. We love meals.
Avoid being astonished if about all these dishes you must try in other restaurants while you are trying to enjoy an AГ§orda de Gambas in a local restaurant, we keep telling you. Nonetheless it will not end here. You need to understand mum does the caldeirada that is greatest, dad chefs a perfect sopa da pedra, the cafГ© shop across the street the tastiest chocolate mousse on earth and did we let you know about GrandmaвЂ™s meals!?
3. We love sex.
But we almost certainly will likely not state that down loud. We have been upfront, truthful, so we usually do not see ourselves as conservative.
Perhaps it is because we had been raised in a Catholic nation, or even there are specific things that should remain involving the sheetsвЂ¦or on a single of PortugalвЂ™s numerous secluded beaches.
4. We love cooking to you.
Therefore be considered a sweetheart and Gaydar chop the onions! Needless to say we are able to too do it вЂ” we take action on a regular basis. But this time around we’re carrying it out together, therefore please don’t dare make use of your time with us to grumble that people put onions in most of your meals. We additionally make use of a great deal of essential olive oil, garlic, and tomato that you try not to complain about. So donвЂ™t also bother saying you don’t just like the flavor of onion, past your taste bud defences anyway because we will slip it. You need to understand our company is maybe not revengeful it, but next time we go to anyoneвЂ™s house there might just happen to be sopa de cebola (onion soup) followed by cebolada (onion stew) on the menu if you do not eat!

5. We certainly appreciate sincerity.
Therefore be yourself! Yes, it is a clichГ©. Possibly due to the present governmental situation, or even because our moms taught us how exactly to make use of wooden rolling pin, just state everything you suggest and suggest that which you state. We should hear the reality, maybe perhaps not that which you think we may want to hear. It is maybe maybe not because you want to get annoyed or even to fight over it, it is because we prefer to try to find truthful solutions.
6. Feminists or вЂњFamiliarists?вЂќ вЂњFreedomists!вЂќ
If on a single end of the stick you have got feminism as well as on one other end family life and motherhood, we are able to be on either end, simultaneously.
We come in all shapes and sizes вЂ” (okay, mainly short), but what we appreciate the most is our freedom as you can tell! You can easily blame it in the Portuguese dictatorship, and just how we had been raised paying attention to your grand-moms and dads and parents saying вЂњOh, this might perhaps perhaps perhaps not take place into the period of SalazarвЂ¦вЂќ but we absolutely need freedom. The 25th of April 1974 wasn’t that sometime ago. Now we could easily elect to wear or perhaps not wear a miniskirt, we could choose to show or otherwise not show some cleavage. Freedom may not need to be our quest that is lifelong being with you, that is our option.
