12 Most Important Traits of Portuguese Women Rated 1-10 (+ Overall Score)
Before I move on to where to meet a Portuguese woman, I want to tell you what are Portuguese women like, both in bed and outside of it.
Therefore, let’s examine what are the most important personality and physical traits that distinguish Portuguese women from other countries.
What Physical Traits Distinguish Portuguese Women from Other Women
1. Physical Appearance
Most of the time, it is the body of hot girls that most men notice first, so let me start by telling you something about Portuguese women body type.
Simply put, Portuguese girls are extremely hot and mostly well-built, which is also thanks to their healthy lifestyle.
Portuguese girls tend to do regular exercise in order to stay in good shape, by doing activities like jogging, yoga, and fitness.
Apart from that, the Portuguese diet is pretty healthy and diverse, which helps with staying in shape as well. Simply put, all these things make Portuguese girls look really amazing.
By doing regular exercise and staying in good shape, Portuguese women also tend to keep their health in good shape.
Also, they eat very healthy food, consisting mostly of seafood, which is pretty standard for coastal countries.
This might not be important for those who only want to hook up with hot Portuguese women, but for those who would want to start a family with them, health can be pretty important.
Therefore, if you are looking for having a serious relationship with your Portuguese girlfriend, you will be happy to know that Portuguese girls are very healthy.
3. How stylish they are?
One of the Portuguese women stereotypes that are completely wrong is that Portuguese girls do not have a style when it comes to selecting their every-day clothes.
That kind of thinking is definitely wrong, which is proven by a lot of things, including the fact that there are a lot of Portuguese fashion models.
The reason people often think that Portuguese girls don’t have a style is that they often tend to dress quite openly, or, let’s say, more liberal than some other European women.
Because of that, when you first land in Portugal and check out some girls, you may think that they are quite easy and perhaps even prostitutes, which would definitely be rude to assume.
4. Facial beauty
One of the Portuguese girl stereotypes that are true, however, is that Portuguese girls are extremely pretty, which is also one of the reasons why there are a lot of famous fashion models coming from Portugal.
Combining that with their hot bodies, it is no wonder why Portuguese women are so desirable across the world.
They have a bit darker skin, still considered white, but not as pale as women from, let’s say Russia or Sweden.
It is due to the climate in Portugal, where the weather is usually very warm and people constantly live under the sun and on the beaches.
Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating
On top of the physical trait ratings for Portuguese women, we have also created our own additional rating from the Portuguese Women men we see on Tinder. We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the men and how attractive they are.
This is how it works.
We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Portugal and took note of how many handsome men there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown.
- 0-100 is poor
- 100-200 is OK
- 200-300 is Good
- 300 – 400 Is Incredible
- 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)
With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Portuguese women. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.
What Different Personality Traits Women Have from Other Women
1. Do they Like Going out and Having Fun?
The best way to meet girls in almost all countries in the world is to visit certain clubs or bars in some of the most populous cities in those countries.
However, some religions and countries have different laws, where women are not so inclined to go out and have fun.
But when it comes to Portuguese girls, you won’t have to worry about that, since there are no such laws in Portugal.
In fact, Portuguese girls are quite liberal, and they like to go out to clubs a lot, as well as participating in different activities, such as going to restaurants, trying out new food or doing fun stuff, like going to cinema or camping.
2. Chill Factor
One of the best things about Portuguese girls is that they will not just be your girlfriend, but also your best friend, in who you can have full trust and who will always be next to you, even when you are not feeling good.
They will always smile and try to make you happy, by telling funny things that could make you smile and make you feel better again.
Even though Portuguese girls are quite liberal when it comes to one-night stands and flirting with foreigners, that doesn’t mean they will cheat on you.
In fact, the truth is quite the opposite. If a Portuguese girl really loves you, she will never cheat on you, which cannot be said for a lot of other women from other parts of Europe.
In return, they will expect that you show them the same respect and treat them as equals, without resorting to cheating.
Truth to be said, you better remember that because you don’t want to see a Portuguese girl catching you with another woman. It’s not a pretty picture.
4. Good as Mothers
Another seemingly important trait for those who are serious about dating girls from Portugal is whether they are good as mothers as well.
Family is really important in Portugal, which is why most girls learn how to take care of their elders, as well as their little siblings during their young age.
That is really useful for their later stage of life when they have their own children and have to take care of their own families.
Apart from that, Portuguese women are excellent cooks, which means that both you and your hypothetical children will eat good food.
5. Meeting and Talking to New People
To get Portuguese girls in bed, you will have to be crafty with your words, as well as having good looks and perhaps a deep wallet.
When it comes to that, you will be glad to know that Portuguese girls are extremely friendly, so approaching them won’t be a problem at all, which will make your quest to hook up with them much easier.
They will always try to smile and be polite, whether they like you or not. But, if they do see that you are flirting with them and they decide to flirt you back, you will definitely notice it, so don’t lose hope.
6. Are they Romantic?
When it comes to answering the question of whether Portuguese girls are romantic or not, we have to analyze what romantic means.
Of course, all women in the world are romantic. It doesn’t matter where they come from or what religion they worship.
It is just a matter of the type of romance that is different in all those countries. Some things that are considered romantic in one country, may not be romantic in another.
It is the same with Portuguese women. However, since Portugal is a part of Europe, most traditional laws of romance work in Portugal as well.
So, buying flowers, chocolate, being a gentleman and showing confidence in front of girls is all considered romantic in Portugal.
Therefore, if you really want to hook up with sexy Portuguese women, don’t hesitate to show your romantic side.
One of the things that are definitely true about Portuguese women is that they are extremely hot in the bedroom.
They will not hesitate to show you that, so you will definitely have the time of your life if you just let them take control when they want it.
Furthermore, they really like to experiment with trying new poses, using different tools and hooking up in various places outside the bedroom.
Therefore, if you are here to learn whether Portuguese girls are good in bed, you will be happy to know that indeed they are, so you should definitely try hooking up with some of them.
8. Gringo Card – How Likely are They to Date Foreigners?
One of the best things about Portuguese girls is that they are always very friendly and they always smile, whether you are a foreigner asking for directions or you are trying to flirt with them in a bar.
Of course, you could use this to your advantage and try to ask for directions if you are new to the city, while also asking them to buy them a drink to say your thanks.
If they accept that, then it is game on, since that usually means that they like you, which can often lead to casual hookups.
And, you never know, perhaps a little adventure like this could lead to something more serious, which is also quite good.
All in all, if you are a foreigner in Portugal, don’t hesitate to show your good sides and start flirting with some hot girls.
Portuguese women have the most well-built and hot body compared to others with their exposure to the sun and beach.
It is a result of a healthy lifestyle combined with regular exercise they have imbibed as a way of life.
With their liberal way of life, they put on fashionable pieces to stay in style.
Are they warm and pre-disposed to foreigners? You will find out as you continue reading plus exclusive photos of sexy Portuguese beauties.
Where to Meet Portuguese Women?
Now that you know what are Portuguese women like in relationships and in bed, let’s talk about how you can meet them.
First, I will give you the best option if you are interested in dating a Portuguese woman online, which is probably the best way for you to learn something about Portuguese dating culture, which would increase your chance to meet Portuguese girls in real life.
After that, I’ll try to present some of the best places, where you can meet sexy Portuguese women, in the two largest cities in Portugal, which are, of course, Lisbon and Porto.
The best way to learn something more about how dating in Portugal works and to get some Portuguese women dating tips is to register on some popular international dating websites and chat with some hot Portuguese girls.
And one of the best sites you can visit is Badoo. It is an internationally acclaimed website, which has over 420 million users across the entire globe.
Also, 12 million of them are from the United States, so you could say that hot Portuguese women are quite used to online dating and chatting with foreigners.
What that means is that if you are an American man looking for Portuguese women, you will have quite a good chance to meet some sexy Portuguese girls.
On Badoo, you can find a partner for everything, from just a simple chat to hooking up and even serious relationships.
Also, Badoo is quite similar to Tinder, since it focuses more on matching younger people to each other while using the excellent mobile app.
Registration on Badoo is quite simple. All you need to do is type in your name, birthday, gender, city of residence and the type of partner you are looking for.
Apart from that, it is imperative that you add a profile photo, so other members could know what you look like.
After that, all you need to do is to check your verification email and you will be taken straight to the website’s dashboard.
When it comes to making contact, Badoo excels in the area, since it is one of the few international dating services where sending messages is completely free to all members.
Apart from that, there is a pretty interesting system for meeting other members, called Badoo Encounters, which is similar to how Tinder works.
Also, Badoo features a really good search option, where you can use different filters, such as gender, the reason for dating, age, location and location.
Another way to communicate with other members is Badoo Live, which is a feature that allows you to start live streams where other members can join and chat with you as well.
If you are being really serious about online dating, then you can select pay for a premium membership or buy Badoo Credits to unlock certain features that could help you succeed in finding some Portuguese females for yourself.
But, even if you don’t pay, the website is completely free to use, with quite a good amount of free features for all members.
Traveler’s Guide for Meeting Portuguese Women
Now that you know how to meet a Portuguese girl online, let me tell you where to meet Portuguese girls in Lisbon and Porto, which are the two largest cities in the country.
Lisbon is not just the capital of Portugal and its most important city, but also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.
The city itself is quite popular for tourists because it is an excellent mix of traditional and modern looks, with a lot of places that are culturally very important to the country.
Because of all of that, a lot of people come to visit Lisbon every year, which, along with its excellent “way of life” popularity, allows it to be on the top 10 list of the best cities in the world.
That said, Lisbon is a great destination to visit, not just for young tourists and people of all ages, who like to travel to beautiful places, but also for people who would like to live and work in the city which offers good opportunities.
Therefore, girls from Lisbon are quite used to dating foreigners, since there are a lot of them living, working and studying there.
In Lisbon, there are a lot of places where you can meet typical Portuguese girls, both for a casual hookup and a serious relationship, so there is something for everyone.
When it comes to meeting hot girls in Lisbon, you will be able to visit a lot of places, from the beach to various cultural sites and numerous bars, restaurants, and clubs.
Your chances to meet pretty women are as good in the daytime as it is in the nighttime, so you won’t have to worry about that.
Naturally, girls from Lisbon like to go shopping, like women from other countries, so it is also a good idea to visit some of the largest and most commonly known shopping malls such as:
- Centro Colombo
- Centro Vasco da Gama
- Armazens do Chiado
Apart from that, you can visit certain bars, which are a pretty good alternative to visit if clubs and malls are overcrowded. Some of the best bars are:
- Damas, which is located at R. da Voz do Operario 60
- BA Wine Bar, at R. da Rosa 107
- Silk Club, at R. da Miseriocordia 14
- Time Out Market, at Av. 24 de Julho 49
Also, since it is Lisbon we are talking about, you can try visiting the beach and try to hook up with sexy girls in bikinis.
When it comes to finding some hot girls in Lisbon during the nighttime, your best bet is to visit some of the excellent bars and clubs, such as:
- Music Box, located at R.Nova do Carvalho 72
- The Dock’s Club, at Rua Da Cintura Do Porta De Lisboa Edif. 226
- Ministerium Club, at Praca do Comercio 72
- Club Noir, at R. da Madalena 201
To visit all of these places, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a taxi, since Lisbon has a pretty well-organized metro, which works 24/7.
If we were talking about how to meet a Portuguese woman in some of the largest cities in Portugal, this guide wouldn’t be completed without mentioning Porto, of course.
Porto is the second most populous city in the country, with a total population of over 2.5 million residents living there.
It is also a very popular destination for travelers, since Porto is one of the most important cultural heritages in the world, due to it being the home of UNESCO World Heritage.
Apart from that, Porto is known for being the home of excellent wine, which is just another good reason to visit this beautiful city.
Even though Porto is one of the most important cities for industry and tourism, and there are a lot of places where you can meet sexy girls, your chances to meet them are much better during the night.
The reason for that is because a lot of hot women tend to work during the daytime or spend time with their family.
But, there are still enough hot girls during the day if you prefer daily meetings. Just visit some of the best bars, cafes, Universities and cultural heritage sites.
The best place to start though would probably be one of the popular beaches, such as:
- Praia de Matosinhos
- Praia de Mindelo
- Praia do Senhor da Pedra
- Praia do Carneiro
There, you will find a lot of sexy women, wearing tight bikinis and smiling at you with their beautiful faces and dancing while showing their hot bodies.
When it comes to finding some hot Portuguese girls during the nighttime, your chances will be a bit higher, since Portuguese girls like to go out, dance, drink and have some fun.

Compared to some other cities, you could say that nightclubs in Porto are not the best in Europe, but the atmosphere is pretty good and people are always cheerful, which is really important when you want to have fun and hook up with hot girls.
That said, I’ll list some of the best clubs, bars, and discos in Porto, where you can meet some pretty Portuguese girls.

- Plano B, which is a pretty nice bar
- HD Bar to Be Wild, which is one of the best clubs in the city
- Kasa da Praia, as one of the best beach nightclubs

- The Wine Box, a bar famous for excellent wine and other drinks
Pros and Cons of Dating a Portuguese Woman
In the previous part of this international dating guide, I’ve covered what are Portuguese women like in bed and relationships and where to meet Portuguese girls online and in the two most important cities in Portugal, Lisbon and Porto
Now, let’s summarize all we know and list all positive and negative sides of dating Portuguese girls, so you could see if it is eventually worth trying it.
1. Portuguese women are honest
Most of us probably want a partner that is not afraid to tell us when we are wrong and who would support and help us to fix those mistakes.
That is one of the best traits of Portuguese girls. They are not afraid to speak their minds and tell you what they think, even if the truth might hurt you.
2. Their cuisine is amazing
Another very good thing about Portuguese girls is that you will never feel hungry again since they really know how to prepare good food.
And it is known that Portuguese cuisine is very healthy, so you will basically be eating extremely delicious and healthy food at the same time.
3. Sex is great
If you simply want to get Portuguese women in bed, then you will be more than happy to know that they are extremely good at it.
They are pretty wild and want to try new things, which makes the entire experience even more interesting and very enjoyable.
4. Portuguese girls are quite pretty and hot
One of the best characteristics of typical Portuguese women is their extreme facial beauty and well-formed bodies, which is proven by the fact that there are a lot of fashion models who came from Portugal.
Therefore, if you like dating pretty and fit women, dating a Portuguese girl is definitely your kind of thing, so don’t hesitate to try it.
5. They have high liberty when it comes to clothing
When you first see Portuguese chicks on the streets, you may think that a lot of them are prostitutes, due to how they dress.
But, you would be very wrong to assume that, since Portuguese girls like to dress provocatively and they simply like to show their hot bodies.
6. Women of Portugal are very loyal
Another very good trait girls of Portugal have is that they are very loyal to their partners, especially if they are really in love with them.
This is not so common in Europe, since European girls are not so traditional anymore, so it is good to know that there are still women outside that trend on the continent.
7. The language barrier is not an issue
When it comes to international dating, language can often be a great obstacle, which makes everything harder.
Therefore, you will be happy to know that it is definitely not a problem when it comes to dating single Portuguese girls since most of them speak at least two foreign languages.
8. Girls in Portugal are very friendly
Another common problem that might occur when trying to approach girls from other countries is that you may be rejected easily.
It is definitely not the case with single Portuguese women since they are very friendly and open to talk to foreigners.
1. Portuguese girls can be needy
Just like girls from other countries, Portuguese girls can sometimes be needy, especially if they are not the main focus of your attention most of the time.
This can lead to pointless arguments and fights, which might not be so bad things when they lead to great makeup sex.
2. They expect the same level of loyalty
Even though Portuguese girls are not completely traditional and are definitely open for occasional hookups, they will not tolerate it if you are being unfaithful to them.
Since they are very loyal to their partners, they expect the same treatment from men who they are dating.
How to Make a Portuguese Woman Fall in Love with You
Now you know what are Portuguese girls like in relationships and how to meet Portuguese women both online and in the two largest cities in Portugal.
However, I want to go one step further and give you some tips for dating a Portuguese woman, in case you decide to travel there and try to impress some hot ladies.
1. Be confident and make the first move
There are countries where girls are quite liberal and where they don’t wait for men to make the first move on them, especially if they like some men.
However, in that sense, Portuguese girls are still quite traditional. Even though they are not shy and they are extremely friendly and communicative, they usually wait for men to make the first move.
Therefore, if you like some beautiful Portuguese girls, don’t hesitate to approach and try to flirt with them because they will never make you feel bad, since they are very friendly and, even if they don’t like you, they will let you know in a polite way.
2. Be a good lover
One huge advantage that you may use if you decide to hook up with sexy girls from Portugal is your bedroom experience.
Even though it is not a crucial factor, being a good lover is a huge bonus, since almost all women like when men know what they are doing in bed.
Portuguese girls are no different. They will want you to show your skills in the bed, but even if you are not experienced, they will take charge and give you the time of your life.
3. Have some style
If you want to date a stylish woman, you also need to be stylish and to wear proper attire for different occasions.
Also, personal hygiene is pretty important, so make sure to clean yourself, shave, get your hair straight and use some nice perfume.
That, combined with good looks and nice clothes, will make you irresistible in the eyes of sexy Portuguese girls.
4. Learn a bit of Portuguese language
One of the best ways to impress ladies from foreign countries is to learn a bit about their language, whether it is just several sentences or even more.
When they see that you’ve made some effort to learn a few words of their languages just so you could impress them, they will fall in love with you in an instant.
So, go to the internet, find some nice Portuguese lessons or use Duolingo or some other language application, and learn the basics.
Trust me when I say this, even though Portuguese girls are fluent in multiple languages, they will definitely be impressed if you even try to talk in their language.
5. Play flirting games
Portuguese girls are quite liberal, so they really like to talk to new people and even flirt with a lot of guys, until they find one who suits them.
Therefore, you will have to be a flirting master if you really want to impress Portuguese women and eventually get them into your bedroom.
6. Show respect towards her family
Family is very important in Portugal. Portuguese girls are very respectful to their parents and elders, as well as other members of their families.
Therefore, another good way to impress them is to show some respect for their family members and help them in any way you can, whether it is a financial help when they need it or just with some simple chores.
7. Be romantic
As stated above, Portuguese girls like when men show some romantic gestures, such as flowers and gentleman-like behavior.
That means that you should consider taking them out on a date in some nice, romantic restaurant, or go for a seaside walk on some of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal.
8. Praise her cooking
Women who know how to cook are usually very happy when others tell them that their food is excellent and tastes great.
That is one of the things you should definitely use when you want to flirt with some girls from Portugal, especially if they are really good cooks.
