Expat dating in spain
I’m from a small, tourist town in Arizona and I decided to come to Spain to be with my Spaniard, David, after graduating and having a short-lived attempt at teaching English in China. David and I meet on a pen pal/language exchange program that was sent to me through my university.By chance, we were paired up together and got along really well. Well, aside from having a very typical name (I’m sure that other efl teachers in Spain can agree with me that when they don’t know any students names in class that they can simply call on “David” and at least 3 boys will answer them) I wouldn’t say that he fits the stereotype well.But, he is definitely a “leísta” whether or not he’ll admit it).He is also in love with olive oil and eats it on everything. From my experience, it seems as if meeting a Spaniard’s parents is a pretty big step and we just haven’t gotten there yet (although I am determined to meet them this year… But I did have a brief encounter where I met his sister (does that count? She was incredibly sweet and supportive and I am very excited to get to know her better.

If you happen to be in the vicinity of the city of Torrevieja in the Alicante province later on this evening, you might want to attend the annual event of the ‘Night of Habaneras on the Beach’. These days, making yourself understood if Spanish is not your first language and your grasp of it is pretty poor or average is a lot easier than it used to be. Most of us now are accustomed to using at least one or two mobile phone apps on a daily basis.
