Dating spanish women
Change the kind of pubs you visit, try to find new atmospheres and environments, join a gym/ classes with young people. Some of you might not agree, but I feel like I see a lot of couples out in Madrid and it feels like there are a lot of romantic relationship based activities to do here.
I will also say most of my friends (I'm 26 btw) from here are in long term relationships or seem to mostly have only done ltrs.
Maybe in Barcelona there's some problems dating, maybe the problem is somewhere else. If you surround yourself with people on your list, then you will find more of the people on your list. But I also feel you tend to be very judgmental of others.
You sound pretty jaded; maybe it's justified, but still, it's not a good starting point, specially if you are already in your thirties: Most guys will either feel intimidated and/or feel the shit you'll give them won't be worth the effort compared to younger (and probably more naïve) women.
I’m not going to give you dating advice, but working on yourself, learning something new by partaking in the activities of a club or similar will maybe put other kind of people in your way with whom you’ll be able to share something more than a drink. I used to work in NY City and have traveled around the world - Peru, most of Europe, some of Asia, lived in Japan for a year, and have seen a lot of the US - and Madrid still stands out.
My tinder bracket’s similar to your but I’m male, and I had no relevant experience I can be proud of to this day. Madrid has a special place in my heart for very romantic reasons that are personal to me, so this caught my attention. People from Madrid are among the most open, smooth, friendly, easy going people anywhere in Europe.
As others have said, unless they're very social, people don't usually meet others outside their social circles (friends, co-workers/students, hobbies) and it's usually a slow progress from acquaintances to relationship.
Yeah, people who go out and party have one night stands and maybe relationships stem from there, but it's not as pronounced as in other countries.Back to the main issue: while it's true that Barcelona is more extreme in that case (mainly fueled by it being a tourist attraction and the feeling of partying, hook-ups and such), I don't think it's that different here in Madrid."Dating" is not a part of our culture in the same way as other countries, or at least it's not that common.I feel that the ritual of dating evolved as a way to meet partners in cultures where male-female friendships and large open social gatherings are rare, which is not the case for most 20-40 year-old Spaniards.While I'm sure that Tinder and the like have resulted in many successful and fulfilling relationships in Spain, in my experience the way most people in Spain in your age range meet their sexual partners (casual or long term) is through mutual friends, hobbies, or work/university.I always seem to come across the same categories of guys, and more or less all of my female single friends here agree: So ya...Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
