    I am not expecting a lot of replies, but has anyone dated a guy who barely speaks your language? How did it go?

    If I cannot interrelate with a guy I will not date him. I've met guys at bars who didn't share a common language with me and realized that there wasn't any point in continuing any interaction. I'm not a mind reader, and lust alone doesn't do it for me.

    I did, it was pretty awesome (but I'm weird). Though about 60% of his English was pretty decent, so it's not like we couldn't communicate. But a lot of phrases and expressions I had to reduce to their simplest form to communicate them.

    Got it.

    I am totally falling for a guy who does not speak english. i have to speak very slowly and break down the sentences and phrases for him to understand them. We are spending so much time together now that it just does not need a whole lot of talking to understand each other. I just know what he is saying.

    I just dont want either one of us get too attached only to realize that it's not going to work. We have already discussed that we are not "date" compatible but I cannot help myself falling for him. Oh well.

    I've only dated guys who don't speak my language. Luckily for me I'm multilingual, so it's never been a problem.

    My current "papi" (from Colombia) has lots of trouble speaking and understanding many elements of American-English slang. But it's ok cause he has sexy muscles and there is no language barrier when we're groping and caressing each other. icon_biggrin.gif
