For example, I had to contact her (email, phone call) a minimum of three times every day, not with any urgent news but just to keep her happy.It seemed to me she needed more 'communication' and attention than any other girl I've dated." Amy: "I think that with my boyfriend, I’ve found an exception to the majority of Spaniards.So that made it clear he was interested romantically. Then we hung out after school a few times, and then he took me out on a very nice kind of elaborate date." Amy: "After some time, I looked at my Facebook and saw that he wrote me a message saying something like ''.I didn’t reply because I thought it would only complicate things.Still, I liked that." Mike: "The importance of communication is crucial when dating a Spanish girl.By that I mean you have to constantly verbalise all feelings and thoughts as well as must be in constant contact with them.We dated seriously for six years and were engaged when we broke it off." Mike, 24, Spanish-American: "She worked at a language school I attended in Malaga.She was one of the teachers there (not mine however) and I was completely infatuated with her Andalusian accent.
Dating is a pretty complicated process no matter where in the world you are, and dating in Spain is no exception.So I made my girls keep moving closer and closer to him.I was literally standing next to him for like 15 minutes before he actually said something.I was leaving the country soon, for good, and I didn’t want to have to say goodbye again. Next thing I knew, I was on a train to Alcalá to see him again." Perhaps all these sound familiar.After all, it’s the same dating game everywhere, isn’t it?
