Dating in Spanish

January 18th, 2008 Posted in Girls, Spanish Language

Dating in Spanish has been an interesting experience for all of us at D-Lab. Especially for Tank and Seth who don’t speak any spanish (or at least didn’t when we arrived)… Overall, the experience so far have been positive. Initial dates required the Hoff’s accompaniment as a translator, later dates relied heavily on the Lonely Planet Latin American Spanish Phrasebook, which is actually pretty effective. Not being able to communicate our deepest feelings or discuss complex issues definitely has its advantages… We also have found that there is no motivation or Spanish lesson more effective then an evening with a beautiful Argentinian woman, or even better - toda la noche. Along the way, we’ve had some pretty hilarious miscommunication such as Tank being absolutely certain that his girl was a Tango dancer (tengo is a common verb for “I have”) . Some key phrases we’ve committed to memory and routinely rely on are listed below. We highly recommend you do the study them with the disclaimer that they are likely incorrectly written here…


Buenisima - What a babe

Vos es muy Linda - You are beautiful

Tienes unos ojos preciosos - You have beautiful eyes

Quieres entrar a tomar algo? - Would you like to come inside for awhile?

Cansado, vamos a la cama - I’m sleepy, let’s go to bed
