What people don't realise is that the pressures on anybody moving to a new country are probably greater than those in our own countries.
Add to that the daily pressure of being with your partner if the only time you spent with each other was on the annual fortnight's holiday for the last 20 years.
Over the last 30 years or so dating in Spain has grown, especially with the many foreigners and ex-pats that have found new homes in Spain, the Balearics and the Canary Islands.
There are many theories out there why so many ex-pat marriages fail after such a short time living in their new found Mediterranean lifestyle.Many turn to Spain or another country in an effort to 'change' a prior life of monotony and boredom or maybe to try to rescue a failing relationship.Compound it further with language barriers, frustrations with the Spanish system, the all too availability of alcohol notwithstanding the fact that it takes time to meet new people and make new friends.It's easy to see why things might get off to a rocky start.
You may want to find someone in a Spanish city by searching for singles Barcelona, singles Madrid, singles Valencia or further south like singles Seville and singles Granada.
Or if you live along one of the Costa's like the Costa Blanca, there's dating in Javea, a resort that's very popular with British ex-pats.
