I’ve noticed several things that I’ve been truly missing lately, and not quite getting out of the relationships I’ve had with American/German men (which is all I’ve dated for the past 3.5 years).
– Terms of endearment in Spanish (mi amor, cielo, corazon, cari~o, mi vida).
– Constant caressing and not being able to not touch in some way or form the loved one near you.
– Physical affection. Hugs, kisses, hand holding, just for the sake of it, with no sexual goal behind it.
– Eye gazing, seeing someone’s soul with no words being said, to not interrupt, but also because there seem to not be any words to explain this feeling of awe.
I’m starting to realize that the way I experience and express love (in all it’s facets) in English is not the same as I do in Spanish. What do you think? Have you found this to be true?
