This article on Spanish women is a guest post by “The Single Rebel”, who lives and resides in Spain…
Despite having written about foreign women on multiple occasions (see my report on Lithuanian girls), I’ve always thought it would be hard to do the same about Spanish women.
Even if it’s my home country, the variety and randomness regarding Spanish women’s looks, personality and attitudes towards men means there’s no cookie-cutter approach to seducing them.
But the time has come for readers of This is Trouble to learn more about a totally different animal: one that can be equally mysterious and shallow, tanned and fierce like a Latina or blonde and cold like a Moscow princess…the Spanish woman.
Women In Spain: Context
I like to say Spain is a bit like the USA: there is a broad, general Spanish culture and lifestyle—but a lot of it will change depending on which autonomous community you visit.
You will find extremely different climates (from tropical islands to freezing cold mountains, from areas where rain never goes away to lands dryer than a nun’s pussy. The lifestyle will change (fast-paced and stressful in Madrid, almost annoyingly slow in Andalusia), and some communities even have their own language (although Spanish is official everywhere and there’s no real need for a visitor to learn Catalan or Basque).
- If you want to start learning some of the local language, Rocket Spanish is a good place to start.
As a result, I will find it impossible to recommend one city over others. Some places are way better than others for business, others for a relaxing holiday, and some others will basically have you partying all night.
Similarly, it’s hard to praise women from one area and diss girls in other places…it will all depend on your own goals, skills and patience.
Spanish Women: Looks & Personality
Right off the bat, the biggest mistake any traveler could make is to assume Spain and Latin America are anything alike.
Language aside, the only things both places have in common will be the love for dancing and the fact that most things (waking up, meal times, going out at night etc.) will be done later than in other western countries.
Make no mistake:
Spain is fully European (bar immigration) and Spanish women are heavily westernized in terms of culture.
When it comes to women they come in all sizes and flavors, but Spain has always been known for the stereotype of Mediterranean Women.
The silky dark hair, golden skin and light brown eyes that make a daughter of the Mediterranean so easily identifiable took over Hollywood about a decade ago with the Cruz sisters: Penélope and Mónica.
To be honest, I’ve never found them particularly attractive—and I am happy to inform you’ll be seeing hotter women than those two anytime you go for a walk in major Spanish cities.
Funny enough the Cruz sisters come from Madrid, but it’s not there that you’ll find Mediterranean goddesses.
If that is what tickles your fancy you should be heading towards Andalusia (any major city will do, although girls from Cordoba are meant to be the hottest in the south).
To a lesser degree you could also try the ‘Costa del Sol’ and Costa Brava’ areas (meaning the coastline from Barcelona to Valencia) and the islands (both the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands).
For the sake of authenticity, here’s what a non-famous, regular hot girl will look like:
I calculate that the amount of women who fit this stereotype is about 25% of the (desirable) female population.
It might come as a shock that the archetypal Spanish woman isn’t even that common in the country. However, the rest of the attractive women in the country are definitely not a downgrade.
The bread and butter of any man in Spain will be brunettes.
I believe make up 60% of the hot female population. Those girls will have brighter, yet equally silky hair and their skins will not be as dark.
Brunettes can be found pretty much anywhere in Spain, although in my opinion the best looking ones will be found towards the North (Santander, Bilbao, San Sebastian come to mind).
Finally, blondes do exist in Spain…
…though they perhaps don’t get the publicity they deserve. Cute blue eyed blondes can be seen around pretty much any other city, although the percentage is certainly much higher in places where:
- Mixing with other nationalities has occurred (The Basque Country, since it’s next to France and has always been trading heavily with the UK)
- Big cosmopolitan cities (aka Madrid and Barcelona), where many families from all over Europe have relocated.
Facial Features of Spanish Women
I would not consider Spanish girls a paradigm of facial beauty, yet they tend to be quite cute and have pleasant faces.
Spanish women take good care of their skin in general, and they don’t make exceptions with their faces. They wear makeup almost everyday but it will be very subtle and natural – sometimes it’s even hard to tell whether they’re wearing any or not.
For some reason, it is extremely uncommon to find a girl with a gorgeous body and an ugly face here. There is even a term for them in Spanish: ‘Gamba’ (Meaning prawn, because you’ll eat everything except for the head).
And speaking of bodies…
Bodies of Spanish Girls
Now, let me get this out of the way…
You will not be seeing lots of big booties in Spain.
Attractive girls in Spain tend to have small, yet very firm and ‘peach-shaped’ asses.
If you’re a big booty man you’re better off trying Latin America.
Since the typically attractive girl here is thin, their tits aren’t anything to throw fireworks at either – which is fine for a small boob lover like me but could be an issue for you.
The real bad news is that, generally speaking, Spanish girls neglect their body by making very poor lifestyle choices. Since most young women here can’t cook to save their lives (ah, feminism) they resort to eating lots of processed foods, and going out and drinking every weekend is an important part of their lifestyle. In addition to that, hot girls seem to believe they will always stay hot—you won’t see many of them hitting the gym.
Go for younger girls.
Virtually every 23-28 year old attractive girl you see will have been way hotter aged 17-20.
Personality of Spanish Women
Spanish girls are, more than anything else, very social animals. I don’t exaggerate when I say women here seem scared to death of being alone. The good thing about that is that they’re used to interacting with people all day long and you certainly won’t shock or scare them when you approach.
The downside is you’ll have to forget about going for a stroll and casually finding dreamy girls reading novels in the park, or leisurely exploring the city on their own.
Most women you meet will fall into the extroverted category, and chances are they’ll love to talk their ears off—so be ready to adapt to a social state if you really want to connect with them.
Culturally speaking, girls in Spain are 100% western. That means they’re generally pro-feminism, quite entitled and even though they’re instinctively friendly towards people they’ve just met it takes just a ‘wrong’ (in their eyes) thing you say to turn them into salty, bitchy characters.
Bear in mind that a huge amount of young Spanish people (18-30) still live at home with their parents and are quite naïve regarding what real life is all about. Most attractive girls you meet will either be students or part-time workers who are not independent yet, so in those cases you will have to plan your seduction steps accordingly.
If you’re more interested in a serious relationship, it goes without saying that Spanish women do not have it a priority to start a family. You’d be better off going east, and finding better luck with either Russian girls or Ukrainian women.
Spanish chicks are quite sexually liberated and see no harm in having flings, temporary mini-relationships or even open relationships. This is good if you’re just visiting the country since they won’t have the reservations other women have when you tell them you’re just a traveler. A Spanish woman will take any form of relationship over being single.
However, this does not mean they will be down to fuck the minute you meet them.
Spanish girls are quite idealistic when it comes to sex and relationships, and even if they’re dying for you to be inside them they will want to keep the illusion of romance. Fortunately, in the case of a woman finding you attractive this will simply mean you’ll have to invest in a few more hours/conversations with her—while the lay will still be pretty much guaranteed as Spanish girls don’t usually have much resistance once you get her home.
My biggest criticism of women in Spain has to be a general lack of femininity.
Girls have strong, sometimes borderline personalities, and can be annoyingly narcissistic (the special snowflake effect). This can catch a lot of guys off guard, until they understand their confrontational approach to seduction is just a front to cover the fact they’re totally controlled by their emotions.
In any case, you will not find many submissive, sweetly feminine princesses here.
And I will be honest with you here:
You really start to doubt the existence of a God when you see a Spanish stunner who could pass for a catwalk model, but in the following 10 minutes outside the club she manages to smoke 4 cigarettes, speak so loud her obscenities can be heard from a mile away, and pee in between trash cans before heading back to the dance floor and turning back into a dancing goddess.
The upside of this is that they do not look for a provider in the classic sense (they’re ‘independent strong women’ and all that—you buy the shots though). Many of them will however want to turn you into a provider of attention and romantic affection in the long run—even if you start as a casual fling.
Again, there are women for all tastes in Spain and you can definitely find more classic sweet girls, but they all have something in common: you will need a load of patience.
Whenever a new pope has to be chosen I always bet a few bucks he’ll be a Spaniard because you need to have more patience than a saint when dealing with women here.
(People laugh when I say that, but since we’ve got an Argentinian pope, and Argentinian women are similar to ours it’s just a matter of time until I make my money back).
How to Meet Spanish Women
The situations in which I’ve met local girls before have been as varied as the type of girls I’ve met. Having said that, most encounters you have will have a social component, as I will explain in a bit.
Classic Night Game
Night game in Spain is almost always a safe bet if you want to meet women, though there are some caveats. Most girls go out in groups and the main way to meet women in clubs is to have a group of other high value men with you—which is not always possible. When Spanish women see a guy rolling solo (or even two guys winging each other) they tend to be wary of them and think it’s ‘weird’.
Once you’re strategically positioned with your group next to a bunch of hotties, it’s all about dancing and having a good time with your mates. Any excuse to initiate an interaction with the girls will do because they will be expecting the approach. From then on the war games begin and they will each take a role in the battle: the social girl connecting both groups, the flirty one showing interest in one of the guys almost straight away, the cold one a few feet away from the action, the ugly one being shy, the mother hen trying to protect her chicks and find cracks in your armor, etc.
Connecting well with the most social girl in the group is key – a lot of Spanish women go out every weekend despite being in relationships so you will need some intel to know who is available and who isn’t.
Same night lays can happen, but are more likely in some cities (In the south, the islands, Madrid, Valencia) than others (The north, Barcelona to an extent, second tier cities).
Tip: Never buy a girl a drink until you’ve at least kiss closed her and have moved on to building comfort with her isolating her from the group—she will instantly lose respect for you. You can instead grab a couple of cheap shots with her (Spanish women love shots) and use that as an excuse to move away from her friends.
Direct Daygame In Spain
Like I said before, it will be hard to find Spanish girls alone and away from a social situation. If you see one alone, assume she’s on her way to meet someone or do something unless she’s shopping.
If you want to daygame in Spain, I’d recommend doing so in either Madrid or Barcelona—doing it anywhere else will not be productive and girls will probably be wary of it if you go ballistic missile style on them.
Indirect Daygame and Social Circle
Surprisingly, indirect daygame works really well in Spain. If you are in a situation where you have a plausible excuse to start a conversation with a girl (need directions, ask her if she can translate something for you etc.) and she’s single and in a good mood then chances are you can easily transition to a more personal chat and get her number.
From then on setting up a date will seem like a natural step for her, and she’ll even brag to her friends about how she ‘randomly’ met this cool guy during the day—she will see that as a sign that sleeping with you is a good and logical idea.
Online Dating In Spain
All sorts of dating apps work moderately well in Spain if you can craft a good profile and have decent skills. Of course, the bigger the city the more productive this approach will prove.
You can use this site to meet Spanish girls – Tinder also works.
Closing Thoughts On Dating In Spain
Now that you know what Spanish women are like, and how you can meet them, you’re ready to enjoy this beautiful and diverse country as a whole—but before I wrap it up here’s some extra advice:
The best strategy to follow when seducing a Spanish girl you’ve met on your trip is to have two dates.
The first one will help the girl get to know you a bit more and once she is comfortable around you she will be happy to let you seduce her (once you pass a couple of shit tests, but you should see them coming from a mile away).
Ending the first phase with some kissing and caressing will set the tone for a more intimate second date that will (very probably) end up in sex.
First date lays are a realistic possibility and I have done so many times, but I have gotten the best long-term scenarios (open relationships, harem members that lasted years) when I run the two date model.
Spanish women become 100% more slutty when they’re away from their hometown.
Make that 200% if it’s a foreign country. Use that to your advantage.
If you run out of patience with Spanish girls (I get it, bro) it’s always good to have chosen a major city.
Like Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla or Valencia—you’ll have a choice of many nationalities there including Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Brazilian, etc.
There are a lot of Latinas in Spain (migrants).
But they tend to forget their origin soon and become just like any other Spanish girl.
In addition to Tinder, you can use International Cupid to meet some Spanish girls.
Especially effective if you are traveling through to other countries as well.

So this is blog about how you banding women from different countries?
I don’t “band” anything.
Tell me where are you from I’m gonna write an article about the guys in your country
Author of this post is Spanish.
Owner of this site is American.
Don’t bother, no one will read it.
“There are a lot of Latinas in Spain (migrants), but they tend to forget their origin soon and become just like any other Spanish girl.”
I heard differently. I heard there actually isn’t that many of them in general. and the best looking ones are already married off to a european man.
He lives there, so….any sources?
I usually do daygame. And I find in Barcelona gaming much harder than in other places (south of Spain or other countries). Why is it so in your opinion? How should one adjust their game for daygaming in Bcn?
Probably because BCN is so touristy, but I can’t be sure.
The tone and content of this blog entry is gross on so many levels I can’t even begin to process it. YUCK. Maybe if you weren’t such a manipulative creep you wouldn’t need to be so patient with women from Spain—or anywhere else in the world, for that matter. You think you’re very smart, but women can probably see right through you more often than not. I guess there is something palpable about your behaviour when you view fellow human beings as pieces of meat that exist only to be eye candy and to give you sexual pleasure.
Signed: your average Andalusian self-entitled bitch 😉
Nobody cares about your opinion 🙂
Aaaah…. I do. So basically you are factually wrong about your statement…
And yeah, you do sound like a bitch.
And you sound like an asshole of the highest degree, all due respect of course
Only betas talk with “all due respect” to someone they’re trying to insult.
I don’t think it’s always like that, and I don’t think women in general will perceive these advances as being creepy if you’re the one being entertained;
And to be fair, you can write your own article on women how to abuse men if you’d like, and take their money I’m sure you think that all day,
You’ve described yourself as so, yourself.
Great blog! It is right on the money. I was in Madrid earlier this year, one of my engineer friends lives there said he just can’t find marriage material in all of Spain (he’s already failed once, divorced his serial cheater wife years ago). He was going steady with a very attractive younger girl (she’s 30) from Southern Spain and living in Madrid. However, she’d regularly go out all weekend, come back hungover, sometimes not at all for days, and return acting like everything was normal. After 2 years, she wanted a ring, he was contemplating it but just couldn’t pull the trigger. If it wasn’t follar / joder this, or “me cago en tu puta madre” that… it was lack of decency Spanish women show… foul mouthed is just the beginning. Couldn’t/ wouldn’t cook, naturally very pretty but was starting to gain some kilos with age. When she went on holiday, she broke her ankle, he visited her at hospital, her male friend was there, by her side, she indeed lived a double life and he was the last to learn about it. It wasn’t just my buddy’s bad experience, I recall I was sitting next to this younger couple one afternoon, looked younger than 25, the girl was watching a homemade porn her ipad while cursing like a sailor to her bf, from my vantage point it appeared to be her in that video. I played the scene extensively prior to getting married, being tan, educated, 6’3″ (190 cm), athletic, it wasn’t difficult meeting/gaming girls (before online dating became so big). However, I only dated a few Spanish women (they are not common here in the States) and they were always down to tumble in the hay by the 1st or 2nd date. Often very pretty, green eyed, brown haired, tan or light skinned, not too curvy, slender would characterize the ones I dated. I imagine that in earlier times they made for great wives… not anymore. My wife’s uncle lives in Gandia (by Valencia) and he’s originally from Madrid, but he was commenting that they may look great on the outside but they curse, smoke, most are atheist with Catholic tendencies, etc etc. I’ve learned that virtually all Spanish women casually sleep around, feminism is alive and well in all of Spain. If I was Spanish, I guess I’d get with the times, growing up to Mexican parents, the old traditions are hardwired, and although my wife is not Mexican (she is South American), she has acclimated to our culture and tends to the kids, changes diapers, cooks, cleans, has no issues when I leave on business trips. Sorry for the long comment, but the author is very much on the money!
Cheers and thanks!
Your “wife” must be a bengali transvestite…
And yet he/she/it is better than the average fat, drunkard and disgusting american woman.
You didnt have too many options, eh?
Shut up John.
You really do not know nothing at all about spanish women.
Only as an exemple: The higher percentage of blondes is in Galicia (NOrthwest)(Highly)
And always so: All you say is false and anybody who really know Spain and its people could realize that it is have been written by someone who has never been in Spain and writes silly stuff … why?
The person who wrote this is from Spain, lol.
All you have written is inexact.
Particularily, paragraphs as “Finally, blondes do exist in Spain…” is so false as stupid. You really do not know an only word about you are speaking …
It’s almost as stupid as your terrible English.
You couldn’t have described them better…
Hear ye, hear ye ! FOREIGNER HAS BAD ENGLISH!!! And thats an actual argument!!!
Wow Unity, you sound like a real winner!
It’s clear that the author of this article masters Spanish women as much as Spanish geography. La Costa del Sol is in the region of Málaga, not in Valencia. Not to mention the sexist and irrespectful tone in which this article is written. Good luck with women, I bet you’ll need it.
Signed by an Andalusian woman born in Córdoba who would run away from anybody talking this trash. 🙂
Nobody gives a damn about your opinion, Andaluza.
Is that a canned reply, or are you paying someone to type that for you every time someone points to some bullsh*t about this article.
I love Andalusia, Cordoba is a very beautiful & historic city was there last year, planning on moving to Malaga Province soon. All the best. Cheers!
I think your blogs are hilarious. I somehow came across this one and then jumped to a couple of others, including the one on Serbian women. Being married to a Serb, I can tell you the men are a**holes, at least my husband is. Arrogant, racist and bigoted. But they have big c**ks so who cares? 😀
I’m not sure why so many women are offended by your “tongue in cheek”, but presumably informative and accurate, “how-to” guide to scoring. Maybe the internet isn’t the best place for these thin-skinned wenches. I’d write a blog myself on how to get laid but it’s like shooting fish in a barrel and the nationality of the fish is irrelevant. That’s the power of the p***y. 😉
“The women got the men like a puppet show…”
Oh and “Latin” women includes Spanish women, and Italian and French…It means someone from a country that speaks a romance language. I’m (half) Italian, Nicaraguan by my first marriage and two sons, and Serbian by my second (“trophy” – he just wants a green card :D) husband.
In other words, I’m American. So where is your article on how to land a US girl because the ratio here is 10 to 1 in the cyber dating game so if you aren’t a 5 star f**k then I’m moving on…
Lol bro, I’ve been living here (madrid) for three months. From MIA, and this is the most accurate shit I’ve ever seen. Good stuff, good advice, the spanish girls who hated on here are exactly what you described. But yeah, I literally got any girl I wanted to back home, here the girls think theyre dominant (in a way) when they have no idea what real life is like, like lady, your an ignorant and your swearing up your ass and you are the most dependent on your parents. Its funny asf because you couldnt have described it any better. Cheers bro
Thanks for the comment!
You sound like an uneducated fool. The only problem that exists in Spain is the abundance of misogynistic men. By the way, based on you’re picture you also seem fat and unattractive so that must be impacting you’re ability to form an opinion when you’re unable to actually meet women. This page is a joke and you’re an embarrassment.
Nobody cares about your opinions.
You are twat.
You are bad English.
A very interesting article to read. Whether some people view it as factually true or not is besides the point. The author is entitled to his opinion and it is apparent that his opinion has been formed from having real life experiences and interactions with Spanish women. It does not mean all Spanish women are as he described. He is speaking from his experience and if this article is the impression he is left with after having those experiences, then it’s hardly his fault for being honest.
I can at least say this from being in a relationship with a Spanish women for 5 years and have been living in Spain for the past 3 years that, from my experience and interactions with Spanish women, there is not a lot that was written that I would disagree with.
Toy llorando ??.
He encontrado una mina de oro en este sitio.
Una mina, digo.
Tío, no entiendo como puedes vivir siendo un estereotipo tan cerrao. Deconstrúyete un poco y tal (si sabes lo que es deconstruirse, claro).
Muchos besos. ???????
Spanish girl is just feminist because they are independent? Wtf? We have our own personality, we arenot the same just for being spanish. But yes, we don’t nedd to learn to cook for our boys, just for us and if we eant for others. You don’t have any idea about spanish girls and generalize is for fools. Good luck
What you want tell me dear 9999170892
lol, always the IRTs
And wait a second, feminism is not being a lazy to do housework, it means genre equality, oh my, read and learn
Feminism is NOT about equality!
If you go about ‘gaming’ with ‘gaming girls’ ANYWHERE, leave aside Spain, you will end up with ‘gaming girls’ who are not marriage material. Rich or wannabee-rich ‘stunner’ girls who are ‘goddesses in dance floor’ will be like this everywhere.
If you chase gold diggers, who you will be getting will be a gold digger and that’s that. Or a slut. Or something of the kind.
And the swearing, strong personage they show off the dance floor is their real personality indeed. It has advantages and disadvantages.
Also the article is inaccurate in that the more you go Madrid and northwest, you will end up with more blondes. The more in the opposite direction, more brunettes, black hair and whatnot.
The best way to meet Spanish women to marry is to meet with the person through friends in neutral settings (not ‘gaming’ places, slutty bars, and other crap like that), work, some kind of volunteer activity and other stuff.
The relationships that grow from connections with the person inside your group towards romance and then marriage – that is how the ordinary folk – who are not ‘gaming’ idiots chasing sluts in bars and then getting frustrated with what they find – do.
The general character of Spanish women is being STRONG. For much of the time, this causes a ‘lack in femininity’ as perceived, because we generally associate femininity with various weaknesses in modern discourse. But Spanish women are gentle and carinoso with the right person, in the right circumstances.
But a majority of your life will be being a family, raising children, with a very strong woman taking care of your entire life, house, family, children and so on.
And yeah – the proposition in the article is correct: Immigrant women also slowly turn into Spanish women with time. Is it something in the air? Water? Food? I dont know. But it happens.
I am a woman who has lived in various parts of Spain for many years. I haven’t found many young girls under the age of 20 who can cook and a lot of them don’t clean either. I think in the UK we still have an old fashioned mentality that we still have children very early and become more independence unlike the Spanish and the Italians. I know so many 41 year old men who still live with their parents in Spain and haven’t even considered having children YET! I have a lot of Spanish friends and in some way I prefer them more than the Brits at time. A good looking man in the UK usually has you begging for him and he;s arrogant unlike most gorgeous Spanish men. I also think the same abut Spanish women. You see it’s difficult to find a person from another country when you have been doing things so different from each other for decades. I don’t think Spanish are as faithful in relationships than us Brits but then again they are always partying and socialising and it’s a lot easier to cheat.
sorry i mean under the age of 30
41 and living at home isn’t a good look in any culture, tbh
I have been to Spain 9 times and feel lucky and blessed to have spent so much time with Espanolas. I agreed with this article until the writer said they u have small booty’s. What??? Are you kidding me? These girls have the most amazing asses in the world including Brasil. I don’t think this writer has ever been to Spain. I know a few girls who went there and even they couldn’t stop talking about all the sick ass. Where does the author, I wonder, think the South Americans got their big booty’s??? Kinda lame dude.
The writer is from Spain and lives there, you idiot
Thank you Gata, I totally agree. Thumbs up for gender liberation. I prefer a free women who has the guts to pee in between trash cans, no matter what guys like you write about them. And yes, there’s a dick between my legs.
The difference between us is, I understand that feminism also means liberation of men from gender identity norms.
Also funny that a non-conformist women is the only thing that let’s you doubt the existence of a god. Doesn’t speak for your intellect. God is long dead. Sad no one told you.
I agree with you, I have been in Spain three times and I have almost only seen perfect asses there. Beauties with great bodies, mamacita! 😉
You’re lame. No woman anywhere in the world would ever want to sleep with you. You obviously have to manipulate and calculate you sexual encounters. Ew.
Wow. This person sounds like a Narcissist pig! Major issues.
first, I think it is really sad that there is GLOBALLY such a general negativity and disgust towards male sexuality in modern times yet a total glorifcation and pedestaliztion of the sexuality of women. Such hyposcrisy imo…I think people who feel this way think they are in the right because of historical and social discourse…men as a group do indeed have many flaws but those that attack men and their sexual desires and needs at any chance are NOT making anything better for ANYONE, imo.
second, To the people complaining about the sexism of the post – perhaps you don’t realize that it is actually HELPFUL for some people.
I moved to Spain as a single expat in my late 30s – I am at the age of wanting a family and to settle down. I think Spanish women are in many ways beautiful and attractive and many would make amazing partners….
However, many of the comments in this post have been unfortunately mirrored in my own experiences….in 2 years here, I have seen many women’s bare assess pissing in the street – something I have never seen before in my life. They also scream at me and threaten me for looking! I can’t believe how many young superfically attractive women here smoke cigarettes and have other disgusting habits. As far as the behavior…I agree. there have been quite a few immature and narcissistic encounters I have had, to my dismay.
I am not a misogynist. I am not attempting to create a harem or take advantage of women. I don’t have a vendetta against women or want to attack them.
What I would like is to find a compatible partner and to form a family with genuine love and affection.
And for me I have been baffled by the women I have met here….and the difficulty I have had in fidning high quality connections with women here (other than friendships)…. I found this article because I simply want to understand if it is even worth it for me to keep trying here or move to another country. i have the feeling there is a strong cultural disconnect between myself and the women I have met in Spain. I have a masters in sociology and another in education with a bachelor in anthropology – I should theoretically be able to understand culture and such issues!
It is not a surprise to me that Spain has one of the lowest birthrates in the world – based on my experiences interacting with the women here. I have seen a general avoidance and hostility towards men – UNLESS you happen to be in a social group with them – THEN you are totally fine and normal and they are warmer. OR if you are fit for a fashion magazine cover….for those guys it isnt too bad. I have (attractive) male friends who are constantly sleeping with a new woman here and there…..
There are a lot of assumptions made here in Catalonia where I live about what is normal and what is not and woe be unto him who does not heed those norms.in my view the importance of gender/social norms is very strong in many ways here….
Talking to someone you do not know on the street? that is WEIRD! the article is spot on there.
Now, okay, maybe the article isnt sensitive to women’s issues and uses some dodgy phrases and ideas- BUT all of the posters who are triggred by it – are cleary not sensitive to the difficulty many men face in finding love affection and partnership ….for many women – who have their pick of men when they want them through apps like tinder – it is a blind spot at the difficulty connecting with the RIGHT type of woman can be.
So this type of article is helpful and useful for men with GOOD INTENTIONS as well as those who simply want to bang as many women as possible.
Overall – i am not a feminist – one reason is where are the critiques of female behavior FROM WOMEN? many women refuse to ever say anything bad about any other women as it is against the feminist cause – it creates an atmosphere of a total lack of accountability in the modern woman – which, in my opinion is a big reason for some of the more negative details that are discussed in this article. and they simply cannot accept any negativity or opinion that does not flatter and celebrate everythng about women – which is disconnected from reality in my view
If that offends, I apologize…
I also want to ask where are the articals written by woment that explain this same topic?
Do they exist?
Please link any “appropriate” dating advice articles for men in spain – I will wait…..
