Technology changing the way people live is known, expected, and common understanding. However, who knew that technology would change the very way that people date? Who knew that meeting people at bars and restaurants, the traditional way would become obsolete. Well, the arrival of Tinder and other dating apps made that possible too. However, on ‘Dating Around: Brazil,’ the traditional way of finding love is not only focused on but emphasized.
‘Dating Around: Brazil’ is a Portuguese show which is the Brazilian version of Netflix’s very own, ‘Dating Around.’ It sees people who are used to dating apps going on real dates to find the love of their lives. Each episode revolves around a different person. In a single episode, one person goes on a blind date with five different people. Then, they choose one person for a second outing.

Raissa is the new girl in town but one who does no find it hard to make friends. Lastly, Paulo is one of the most spontaneous people: someone who puts his best foot forward while dating.
