The Truth About Dating Spanish Men!
When I lived in Barcelona ,and it was one of the best times of my life getting to experience a different culture while living my absolute best life, this included ''DATING'' in Spain. Dating a Spaniard is very different compared to dating British Men,although I am not one to generalize there are big differences which need to be addressed! ROMANCE Spanish men are so romantic and not in a corny way, they tend to say what they mean about you whether it is about your physical appearance or personal attributes,whereas if a British guy compliments you it can sound super corny at times ! GENTLEMEN Spanish men are Incredibly polite even if they do not want to pursue a relationship with you they remain respectful or let you down gently. Normally they pay on dates even if you are only not an official item or committed relationship. Most women today still like to be treated like a Lady,Spanish men will not disappoint you when it comes to chivalry, I have never come across a Spanish man who wanted to go Dutch on a date. LANGUAGE ISSUE Unless you are lucky to have bagged a Spaniard guy who speaks English fluently at an idiomatic level you are likely to have trouble communicating , even if your partner speaks English. If they are not a native speaker chances are you will often misunderstand one another. Whenever you do not understand your partner make sure to inform them. After the honeymoon period wears off, it will be a test to see if your relationship can stand the test of time. FOREIGNER FETISH "Do not stereotype me" This attitude is typically from the Spanish men who have little experience traveling abroad or interacting with people from different nationalities. Within seconds they are comparing you to another celebrity you look nothing alike, they love your hair texture and ask consistently if you like Spanish men comments such this. Bear in mind this is within minutes of meeting you, I can spot this type a mile off such as "Hermosa chocolate" NO THANK YOU! FAMILY They are extremely close to their families and will often introduce you very quickly this does not always signify that you are the love of their life, or they want you to be part of their family, it simply means that Family is extremely important to them. On top of this do not be surprised or put off if he is still living at home in his 30's, this does not mean that he is a looser,it is common in Spain to live at home with your parents in your 30', whereas in the UK it is rare.
