Chris Linnares has quite a story to tell. As a newlywed and new mom she was adjusting to life in a new country. She left her native Brazil to marry the man of her dreams and move to what she calls “the frozen tundra” of Fargo. It was a tough transition. She was gaining weight and getting more depressed. What pulled her out of her funk? It wasn’t medication, but a realization that listening to her body is just what she needed.
When columnist Chris Linnares told a few of us at SheSays that she wanted to do a story about turning your North Dakota man into a Latin lover, you could almost see the most Scandinavian of us bristle a bit. That sounds a bit racy, right? One nice woman even emailed her to say our North Dakota men are just fine, thank you very much. But actually, Chris’ intention wasn’t to judge the passionate Latin man against the stoic Midwesterner who can help you with the jumper cables. Rather, she says the goal is to understand if women and their partners are speaking the same language of love. Watch as Chris chats about the topic with two local woman. What do you think?
