So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Zoë

barcelona
My name is Zoë, I’m twenty years old, I’m from Atlanta, and I’m majoring in film production. I returned to the US this December from a four-month study abroad program in France. I visited Spain on the front end and back end of my trip, to see my boyfriend Jokin who is from San Sebastián. I was completely taken by the culture, beauty, and food (of course) in the Basque Country.

So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Chelsea

It seems I do a lot of interviews with girls named Chelsea who are dating Spaniards. This is number three! If you are named Chelsea and you are also dating a Spaniard, you know where to contact me.

My name is Chelsea (apparently this name attracts Spanish men, according to this blog). I’m a 24 year old California native who has been living in Madrid for the past year working as an auxiliar de conversación. My story is fairly similar to others’ who have been featured here. I studied abroad during the spring of 2011 and found that a semester wasn’t enough time in Spain. Plus, there was a dashing Spaniard waiting for me. So I came back.

So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Season

This is an interview I received last October. Eek. As you can see, I’m a bit behind on my interviews. It seems they’re never ending, but I love it. Personally, I feel a learn a bit from every person I have the privilege to interview. That said, here’s Season!

American dating Spaniard

Hi! My name is Season, and I’m 30 years old. I came to Spain for the first time in August 2004 to study abroad in San Sebastian. Coming back to the States a year later, I was completely changed and knew that my time in Spain wasn’t finished. After completing my degree at the University of Nevada Reno, I found out about the Auxiliares de Conversación program, applied, and got accepted! I spent two years teaching at La Escuela Oficial de Idiomas in Irún, went back to Nevada for almost a year, and then came back to Irún to begin teaching English at a private academy. During this time I met my husband and knew that Spain was the place for me!

So You’re Dating a Spaniard—Zac

Hey all! I’m back today with a slightly different perspective on what it means to date a Spaniard. This interview is from September (I know, I know: I’m a terrible blogger), so the dates they’ve been dating are slightly longer than he says.

Zac in Madrid

Let’s see, my name is Zac, I’m 23 and I (like so many other Americans in Spain) am an Auxiliar de Conversacion. 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.
