12 Reasons Why Spanish Men Are Cool

By Nancy Todd                               Comments by:  The Blogdog

Spanish men are very cool.  Here are 12 reasons why men in Spain have the edge.  The Scoopmeter went berserk.

l. Spanish men wear Levis and their butt cracks don’t show. They know butt cracks are not sexy to women.  Why American men think this is sexy is beyond my vast knowledge of men.

2. They have traveled beyond Ohio and most speak more than one language and often speak several languages.

3. The men in Spain pay attention to international politics.  They love President Obama and do not love Rush Limbaugh or Anthony Weiner.  After all this time, they still ask intelligent questions like: “Why did you Americans elect George Bush twice?”  I am still wondering how that happened.

4. Spanish men wear leather sandals with business suits.  Espadrilles and cool leather shoes with square toes are common and they do not worry about being gay.

5. Kissing on both cheeks and hugging is common and they do not worry about being gay.

6. Men here do not elbow each other, point, and hee haw when they see a topless woman on the beach.

7. Small dogs are a favorite with men and they do not worry about being gay.

8.  Spanish men don’t own guns. (unless for hunting)

9.  Spanish men have longer eyelashes and green/topaz eyes.  Your best bet for this combo is in the South of Spain.

10.  Like American men, they look very sexy in lycra bike shorts.  When shopping in Spain for bike shorts or other sporting goods, the national chain store, Decathlon is a good bet.

11. The Big Scoop is that when invited to your home, men always come with a bottle of wine or flowers. Or both.  They get lots of points from Regina and I on this one.

12.  No scratching, burping, or farting on dates.  The Scoopettes think this is revolutionary.

Get on a plane women.  Spain is a great country for lots of reasons.

Where to meet men?  Try some tapas bars:  Barcelona     Madrid      Granada     Seville

    Very nice summary. In general, I agree. But, you find romantic and educated types in every country. Sure, it’s harder over in the US, but this is still the land of Jack London and Yale. Everyone seems to delight in representing our culture with ignorant and boring white anglo-saxon protestants who don’t know anything but fast food and left-wing propaganda. There are some very kool men not just in the creative places like LA, New York, or Chicago but also in Missoula, Montana; Austin, Texas; and anywhere in Virginia. When I lived in Spain it was just as hit or miss as anywhere else. Some of them dress great. Others look like they are imitating some kind of member of the Cleaver family. Some were great kissers and you could get aroused from that alone. Others had more grace in bed than an elephant on ice skates. The major difference that I liked was the informality of romance. It gives everyone a kind of freedom to explore without all the heartbreak.

    I am an American dating a Spanish man and would like to agree with Meagan that it is just as hit or miss as anywhere else. Lists like these can be fun, but generalizing is dangerous and pointless. Many of the people I’ve met here know as little about the states (and other countries) as some Americans know about Spain. It’s hard to be American over here with all the burger-eating, Bush-loving, unworldly, ignorant stereotypes abounding. And another thing that aggravates me is that Spanish people think it’s acceptable to find any American personally accountable for Bush being elected twice. Let’s not forget that many people (myself included) still believe he stole office. Even if that isn’t the case, the many people who didn’t vote or voted the other way are not culpable.

    I am Russian-American, living in New York. I dated Spanish men twice in my life – in my early 20s and in my early 30s. They were both amazingly good-looking – gorgeous shoulder-length jet-black hair, very fit and sculpted bodies, the best kissers I ever known in my entire life, also, very artistic, creative personalities, well-spoken, intellectual types….BUT….No idea of how to be faithful even short-term. They both were complete and hopeless players. From those two guys I got the impression that Spanish men don’t get attached to one girl, even if they like her very much. Maybe, it’s the pressure of everybody expecting them to always be macho-men, always be surrounded by beautiful women, that leads to this inability to focus on just one woman…
    Or maybe, it’s because i am not Spanish, and they don’t treat non-Spanish women with the same respect they would a Spanish woman….I don’t know. But the romance and passion is definitely worth the inevitable heartbreak while dating a Spanish man.

    You either must know very few Spanish men between you, or live in a Metrosexual City. Or both. In my rural village the men are mostly Farmers over the age of 50 who don’t even know what a suit is, let alone own one. And they almost all own a gun.

So, my question is….any dating tips???? I have only heard nice things about this man, and truly want to make a good impression. Yes, I know this is silly, but I am nervous!! Help ladies! It’s been awhile since I have had a date!

    I have had dates with several Spanish men in my teens and well I have to say they are lovely they know how to please a woman and they say just the right things (even if their English is very sparse, it still comes across as sexy! ) Just to let you all know, well, I am now doing a degree in Spanish and it is well worth it, believe me! Now I know exactly what they are saying lol!

    My ex was a Spanish man and he loved to fart up storm and always wanted to share the sound and umm smell :| with me! One reason why we broke up! Just thought I’d share. I do love the culture and country and would like to try again! They certainly are good looking!

    I love my Spanish man, but he definitely does not do dos besos unless it’s 1) with a woman, or 2) with a family member (dad, brother, uncle). I think that’s the norm, right?

    Also, Mario (my fiancé) does speak four languages, but a lot of the men I know don’t! I feel like Spanish men aren’t like, say, Scandinavians who do tend to speak several languages.

    But I do agree that Spanish men are great. I love mine and his friends. Great, loyal friends.

    Good points. And of course we’re making general, sweeping statements here!No one speaks like northern Europeans, they put us all to shame. I guess Spaniards who live in Catalonia or Galicia or Valencia or the Islands or the Basque Country have more chance of being bilingual than those who don’t.

    Well like Plainjane, I am doing a degree in Spanish and in my youth I have been out with Spanish men, they are gorgeous, they know exactly what to say and they are very sweet and really good-looking to boot. I love Spanish it is well worth learning!

    In spain, the 95% of people who was born and live in: Galicia, Catalunya, Valencia, Baleares Islands or Basque Country are bilingual.

    Yes, many bilingual people in Spain – not to mention many of them speak English or French!

    We are not as wonderful as you might think… and I’m pretty sure American men are not so… that way either. You can find good people everywhere. Don’t idealize Spanish men, ’cause we are not better than others… if you still think so, you can contact me, anyway ;)

    PD; Scandinavian don’t speak “several” languages, but their own language and English.

    I lived in the South of Spain for 3 years (not too long ago) and I agree Spanish men can be intriguing, especially in Lycra. However I also supervised them. Most tend to be a bit chauvinistic and women are expected to cook and keep the house clean. I also saw many of them scratching. I began to wonder if they had bugs. They don’t care about the gay issue and it is disheartening when a gorgeous man is gay. One taught me how to make a great Moroccan Mint Tea. Oh, and most are very vain. Shaving, waxing, etc., so if you have a cute one you better take better care of yourself than he does of himself. LOL! Most are very into exercise, i.e., biking, triathlons, swimming. They don’t take a lot of vacations, only in August. Oh, and from my experience, most didn’t like Obama. It was the other way around. I do miss it there now. I could go back and handle things a little different!

    Maybe it depends on how old the Spanish man is…what generation…etc. Anyway, the post is an attempt at hummor. We know there are sexy men all over the globe!

    I’m American, yet:

    I don’t kiss on both cheeks and hug (because it’s awkward and antihygenic, and meaningless).

    I don’t wear leather *anything* because it’s ugly and unfashionable

    I don’t like small dogs, because they are annoying, ugly rat-like creatures.

    Your obsession with homosexuality makes me wonder if Spanish people really care too much about not being gay.

    I am an american living here in Spain. One glaring obvious I have noticed about spanish men is the piercing look and stare that lasts for a good five seconds. I find it odd and funny at the same time. A bit creepy too.
    As far as spanish men being really attractive, I agree. They are the most gorgeous men I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Their long lashes and brown eyes, you can hear the passion in their voice and I love the way they speak english in their spanish accent.
    In fact, I fancy this spanish banker who is in his middle 50s. Of course he doesn’t know.
