I totally feel you here on this one! I too am learning Spanish (I’m a Canadian expat in Guatemala). I got here 2.5 yrs ago not knowing a word. I find they always want to know how old you are and why you don’t have a boyfriend. And yes, like you, I don’t always answer so truthfully. I don’ t have a boyfriend because the men down here suck…what I do say is “
Estoy feliz de estar solo en este momento” which is a lie…lol. I do love these people, learning the language (as frustrating as it is) and living here! :)

That was a great post by the way Candace :)
