Last night G., A. and I were having a cozy roommate night and G. came across this great site on stumble-upon. The site lists different words in other languages that describe romantic feelings that the english language has no specific word for. As a Spanish major and a hopeless romantic, I found this list breathtaking and hope you do too Hart Beat.
The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start.
The happiness of meeting again after a long time.
The heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can’t have.
Koi No Yokan (Japanese):
The sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love.
The feeling of longing for someone that you love and is lost. Another linguist describes it as a “vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist.”
Look here for a list of all the words. They all slay me.
