Dating While Traveling Spanish-Speaking Countries

By: Jason Vachon

Sometimes meeting others and dating is hard enough in your own language. Obviously this presents some additional challenges if you are in another country and are not fluent in the native language.

But while hooking up in a country where you don't know the language can be difficult, it's not impossible. Here are a few dating tips you should keep in mind.

Do Some Prep Work

As soon as you learn you are traveling to a Latin country, you should start preparing. Just because you can't speak the language fluently doesn't mean you have to be seen as the typical, "ignorant tourist."

First, learn about the country itself, it's history, culture and customs.

Next, learn about the pop culture.

What kind of music is popular in the country you plan on visiting? Try to get your hands on copies of the hot singles.

Listen to them at home and while driving in your car. Learn what the words mean, and sing along.

What television shows and movies are hot there right now? Try to see them (on DVD, on cable, or online). If there are subtitles pay attention them while watching and listening.

Now, during your travels, you will have something interesting to talk with people about.

Learn Some Sexy and Romantic Spanish Phrases

Imagine you are in a Spanish speaking country, and have gone out to a night club. You see someone attractive across the room, and get up the nerve to approach them.

What are you going to say?

Opening with a flirty Spanish phrase would be a great ice breaker.

Begin memorizing some funny and romantic Spanish phrases. Make sure you are pronouncing them right. And practice saying them over and over again until they just roll off of your tongue.

Make Friends Who Can Help You Navigate the Dating Scene

Once you arrive, try to make friends who are either natives of that countryHealth Fitness Articles, or who know the language and are familiar with the social scene.

Let your new friend know you are interested in hitting the local hot spots. Or they might even suggest it first.

A friend who can help you navigate an unfamiliar dating scene will give you a big advantage.

Just because you don't speak the language fluently doesn't mean you can't have a romantic social life while in a Latin country. These simple tips will provide you with some common ground to make it funner and easier to date during your travels.
