As with anything, it’s hard to generalize, especially when it comes to dating in Spain, because each region has a somewhat distinct culture. Here are some things to keep in mind for your Spanish love affair.
I personally haven’t seen or heard of Spanish men randomly buying flowers or chocolates for their girlfriends, or trying to woo women by breaking out a guitar and singing to them.
In fact, Spanish men are quite shy and not at all forward when it comes to talking to women.
Meeting the family is a big deal in most cultures, but even more so in Spain, and it can happen pretty soon into the relationship.
Three weeks into dating my boyfriend, I still remember when he timidly asked me if I would like to meet his sister and niece.
I actually think part of that comes from confusion with Latin American men, who I’ve found are actually much more romantic than the Spanish.
That being said, this does vary depending on the person.And once you meet the family, you’re immediately a new member of their circle and they’re thrilled to have you. Also, it can sometimes be the case where your has nights set aside to eat with their family alone.Don’t be offended if his Monday or Tuesday night is always booked for family dinners and he has to meet up with you after.It is also socially acceptable for young people to live at home until they are in a serious relationship or until they’re married.If this is the case, it normally isn’t a big deal, especially if you have your own apartment where you can have your alone time.When it comes to arguments, patience is always key, but even more so when you don’t share the same native language. The Spanish like to see where life takes them; they don’t limit what could happen on any given day by making strict plans.
