Spanish dating and courtship
” I asked, horrified, as he drove me home from work one day.
Read the travel blog below: Waking up to the lovely sound of a car's horn???Pleased with myself for having held out so long, I finally spilled my digits. Unknowingly, I committed my next Spanish courting blunder: I accepted.No sooner did Estebán and I make plans, then our plans were abruptly cancelled.Señor Guapo and his friends soon migrated to another area of the bar, and my perfectly primped, high-heeled Spanish girlfriends quickly descended upon me. But, I had just learned the first rule of dating in Spain, and I’d learned it the hard way: If you are a woman and you are interested in a man, never ever show it.I found myself at a New Year’s Eve party and spotted an attractive young man named Estebán.Thinking I was starting to get the hang of things, I even refused to give Estebán my number.
At 7 a.m., the hour that typically closes a night out in Spain, we were hungrily scraping the last of the melted chocolate out of our cups with fresh .
When he never called back, and when he failed to return my subsequent three phone calls, I knew I had lost the game before I even set foot on the field. ” my friend Miguel Sanchez later explained to me over tea.
“If you want a date with a Spanish guy, you have to reject him, of course.” (cop and robber), as my suave friend Juanma Fernandez calls it, once it has been established that both parties are interested, it is the woman’s turn to do the chasing.
For Juanma, allowing the woman to pursue means avoiding her phone calls, talking about other women in her presence, and even going as far as to fib about one’s availability to solidify the second date.
“Juanma, are you trying to tell me you would lie just to impress a woman?
I would love to see you again.” Interesting approach.
