There's no need to play games when you're dating the Spanish. There's no need to restrain your affections in Spain — Spanish loving is a public affair, where sweet whispers, poetry and romantic gestures are still alive in the Spanish dating scene.

And even though I cherish my independence, I found myself liking this gesture of affection.
After a few hours of discussing basketball with his athlete friend and politics of succession with his zealously-Catalan buddy, I was officially accepted.
