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!
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!
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.
It’s been a while, but I’m finally back with Diane, yet another American dating a Spaniard! It seems to be the thing to do nowadays, I suppose. I’m very excited to have her on the blog. Diane blogs at California to Catalunya. Welcome, Diane! Introduce yourself for us.
I’m Diane, I’m 23 years old and I’m from San Diego, California. I’ve been living in Spain for 2 years now. I studied a masters here and have been working as an English nanny and doing social media marketing.
How did you meet your significant other and how long have you been together?
I’m beginning to think the American men dating Spanish women are a rare breed, because I’m back today with another interview of an American woman dating a Spanish man. These don’t get old for me, because every one of my interviewees has had something new and different to add to the conversation. Let’s let our newest subject introduce herself.
I’m Chelsea, I am 26 years old and I’m in Spain for the wine. Just kidding (sort of). I first came to Spain for a summer program in college in 2009. I fell in love with the country and was determined to come back, so I applied for a Fulbright grant and surprisingly won! Without the push of the grant as well as the prestige and free airfare that came with it, I’m not sure I really would have gone through with it! I made the official move in September 2010.
