And this is not all! In this blog post, we’ll share every step of the way, so you don’t get frightened when you get into a romantic situation 😉

1. How to start a conversation with someone

Okay, so… First, of course, you have to start somewhere. But how do you do it?

You have to approach someone. Don’t worry, Spanish native speakers are open-minded, they won’t bite you, and you can use the following phrases to talk to them.

Start by saying hello in Spanish, introduce yourself, then you can immediately give them a little compliment.

SpanishEnglish
Hola, ¿cómo estás? Me llamo [Your Name]. ¿Y tú?Hi, how are you? My name is [Your Name]. And you?
Hola, ¿te puedo invitar a tomar algo?Hi, can I invite you to have a drink?
Me encanta tu sonrisa. ¿Cómo te llamas?I love your smile. What’s your name?

2. Cheesy pick-up lines for flirting in Spanish

After the first few Spanish sentences, you can try cheesy pick-up lines. Just make sure you add a touch of humor to these, because they might find you too cheesy.

These pick-up lines are popular ones you might have already heard on the streets with Spanish slangs. Analyse your situation, don’t go over the board, and don’ be too pushy!

SpanishEnglish

Spanish-speaking cultures value charm in interactions. That’s the reason you shouldn’t be afraid to talk to someone in Spanish. Being just honestly interested in the other persona can go a long way. Compliments are well-received most of the time, but make sure they come across as sincere… rather than exaggerated.

Humor is another great tools in flirting. Light-hearted jokes or a bit of teasing in Spanish can break the ice and make the conversation more relaxed.
