Can Europeans apply for B2 tourist visa?

I have been away from my fiance for a year now. I was planning to either apply for a B2 and after it for a F1. Since my Spanish passport applies into the VWP, can I still apply for a B2? If so, should I mention the real reason why I want the visa?I just want to spend time with him, as we still have 4 yrs ahead till he can apply for citizenship.

Yes, you can. Even if you are covered by Visa Waiver, you do have the option to apply for a B-2 visa. In my view, you must state the reason truthfully. As to what your chances are is impossible to predict.
