As a dating coach I see over-communication spoiling relationships far more often than lack of communication, particularly in the early stages of dating.
When I was a senior at high school, I had a Brazilian exchange student live with me for three months. On the first day at school, all the girls had a crush on him.

I also learned heaps from her about Ghanaian culture, food, dance, and more. I went on some dates where we spent most of time in silence. Here are my favourites: One of the best parts about dating someone in your target language is that you can learn the real life experiences and not from a boring textbook.
Perhaps his accent, possibly it was his style, or maybe it was the fact he kissed girls on the hand when he greeted them. She was great and extremely helpful for me to learn the local language, Twi. Being in a relationship with someone who speaks your target language has lots of benefits.

But just as printing too much money can diminish the value of the dollar, so can speaking too effusively diminish the value of what is said.

Consider the story of Kate, who met and developed a wild crush on Antoine while vacationing in France.
