It's a friend...an old friend...I knew his sister, we were really good friends as teens, she died of cancer a few years ago...I dated him...we connected on facebook a while back, chat occasionally..now we're watching the hockey playoffs together...I think he's having a few drinks....he's always talked about getting our families together...he knows my husband, my husband knows we talk.<br><br>
But then tonight...it sort of veered a little...<br><br>
and he sent the Spanish message...and then got sort of embarrassed when I could pick out a few words...<br><br>
he's 2000km away and I'm not overly concerned...<br><br>
But it is sounding a little more "me and you" than "all of us" but I think I'll just ignore it.<br><br>
But it does confirm the vibe I was getting...<br><br>
He's incredibly attractive, always has been...

Yes...he's actually a top notch guy...I mean reputation wise. I keep thinking he meant something else...but I fear he didn't...turns out he's fluent in several languages...he's a very interesting person, we've had great talks.<br><br>
On one hand I'm flattered..on the other I'm a little disappointed in him...and then I think...maybe I'm reading too much into it.<br><br>
I'm not used to this kind of thing...it's been years...I think my radar is broken lol

If he speaks multiply languages, maybe he knows Spanish by the book or "official" way. Maybe, he really means to get each other as a family. Relax!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod">: Assume he means "meet" not "hook up" and respond accordingly.

I would read it as "I would be delighted to/I would love to meet with you/meet up with you (but not hook up <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) this summer." I'm not a native speaker, though, and I'm not fluent.

This is exactly what I'm doing...though a few more things have been said since we've been chatting that convinces me that he does mean "hook up" but he's definitely been drinking and so I'm going to hope he sleeps it off and we can go back to our regularly scheduled friendship.<br><br>
He's such an interesting person...I'm hoping he tested the waters, found them very cold and will revert back to being "interesting male friend of mine". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

hubby just translated it as "I'd like to get together/hang out this summer" He's not a native speaker but lived in Spain/Argentina for a year so has good conversational skills

Encantar is enchanted, but it also translates as delighted/pleased. I hear people use it a lot in the context of "happy to make your aquaintance/Pleased to meet you" ("Encantado de conocerte").
