English to russian dating phrases
Understanding Russian dating culture can do wonders for your love life.To skip the etymological debate, you can always say 'baciare con la lingua' (to kiss using tongues) or 'slinguare' which means the same but is more fun to say.' Limonare' (literally 'to lemon') is another way of talking about a somewhat sloppy kiss, and probably derives from the action of lemon squeezers, while 'pomiciare' comes from the noun 'la pomice' (pumice stone), which gives some idea of the technique described.The noun 'una civetta', which means 'owl', is used to talk about flirty women (in English you might say 'vixen'), while for men you could say 'un donnaiolo' for a heterosexual man (it translates more or less as 'womanizer') or 'un cascamorto', which comes from the term 'cascare morto' (to fall down dead), suggesting dramatic swooning.
You can also use the verbal phrase 'fare il cascamorto' to refer to a man who is flirting, usually in an over the top way, with someone.
If you're talking about a single date, you'd say 'ho un (primo) appuntamento con un ragazzo/una ragazza' (I have a (first) date with a guy/girl), but if you're dating regularly, you can say 'sto uscendo con qualcuno' or 'mi sto vedendo qualcuno' (I'm going out with/seeing someone).
