How to Flirt in Spain: Top 10 Spanish Pick-Up Lines
Are you heading to Spain this holiday? Do you want to be prepared if Mr. or Ms. Right comes along? Look no further than these ten pick-up lines in Spanish which are sure to get you heading on the right track.
Be warned! Although Caballerosidad, the Spanish term for chivalrous or gentlemanly behavior, is still common throughout Spain, women travelling alone may receive flirtatious comments, commonly known as “piropeo.” These comments, or “piropos,” are similar to pick-up lines and are said to show romantic interest. Two popular ones are “¡mi amor!” meaning "my love," and “¡guapa!” which means beautiful. Don't be excessively alarmed at flirtatious comments; consider making some of your own.
Don’t worry! With these ten pick-up lines mastered, you will get the person of your dreams in no time! Or at least you should get a lot of giggles.
