Before you know it, they’ll be attracted to you like magnets!

So what are some phrases one can use when attempting to flirt in Spanish?

Here are 30 phrases paired with phonetic pronunciation:

1) Tú eres una mujer fatal

“You are a fatal woman”.

This is another flirty phrase, but it implies more of a seductive connotation than “I like you more than…” does. This can be used in the same sense as with friends or strangers. It works great with a wink, a smile, and a bit of hair-sweeping.

Tú eres una mujer fatal – You are a fatal woman

2) Hacía mucho que no veía a una mujer tan guapa como tú

“I haven’t seen a woman as pretty as you in a while”.

This is a phrase that is similar to “you´re gorgeous!” or “we should go out sometime!”. It’s the kind of thing you tell someone who catches your eye on the street, at school, wherever.

Hacía mucho que no sabía de ti – I haven’t heard from you in ages!

3) No sabes cuanto te quiero

You may have heard this one before. The literal translation of this expression is “You don’t know how much I love you”.

However, this phrase is usually said with a bit of irony…I mean, anyone would assume it means “you don’t know how much I care about you” instead, but for those who do understand the hidden meaning behind the phrase…it can be used as a flirtatious joke!

No sabes cuanto te quiero – You don’t know how much I love you (said jokingly)

4) La mujer del doctor es igual que tú

Okay, so this is one of those phrases that only works if you sound really Colombian or Venezuelan…but if your pronunciation is spot-on and it sounds nice, go ahead and use it!

This phrase is a play on words – “doctor” in Spanish can be used as slang for “handsome/sexy man”. In essence, this phrase means “The doctor´s wife is just like you”.

La mujer del doctor es igual que tú – The doctor´s wife is just like you (said jokingly)

5) Eres como una flor hermosa

“You are a beautiful flower”. This works great as a pick-up line to someone you think might have an interest in going out with you. It has more on the poetic side than the flirty side.

Eres como una flor hermosa – You are a beautiful flower (said as a pick-up line)

6) Cuando te vi me quedé de piedra

This phrase literally means “when I saw you, I became a stone”. While it might sound weird, this one isn’t too difficult – just remember the Spanish word for stone is “piedra”, and that should help! This phrase implies you were so shocked by how gorgeous somebody was that your jaw dropped to the floor.

Cuando te vi me quede de piedra – When I saw you my jaw hit the ground/When I saw you my mouth dropped open

7) Cómo se dice “me enamoré” en español?

Literal translation: “How do you say ‘I fell in love with you’ in Spanish?” How did your conversation get to this point? Did someone ask for advice on how to tell a loved one that they’re falling in love them? If not, feel free to lead the conversation there.

Cómo se dice me enamoré en español – How do you say I love you/I’m falling for you (in Spanish?)

8) Estás para comérmelo

Literally means “you are something I want to eat”…however you CANNOT use this phrase to ask someone out! Just like in English, this sentence sounds more like a joke than something serious.

Estás para comérmelo – You’re something I want to eat (said jokingly)

9) Eres la mujer de mis sueños/Tú eres el hombre de mis sueños

“You´re the woman of my dreams/you´re the man of my dreams”. This is another pick-up line to use when talking with anyone…just make sure they don’t know that it actually means “I’m just kidding” since it could be taken the wrong way otherwise!

Eres la mujer de mis sueños/tú eres el hombre de mis sueños – You’re the woman of my dreams/you’re the man of my dreams (said jokingly)

10) Si te conociera en otra vida…

This is actually a line from a famous Spanish song by Alejandro Sanz. However, you can use this phrase in any situation to say “If I had met you before…” or “…in another lifetime”. The literal translation is “If I had known you in another life”.

Si te conociera en otra vida – If I had met you before…

11) ¿Me estás llamando?

This phrase literally means “are you calling me”. When someone says this to you, it could be because they have a slight suspicion that you´re trying to flirt with them – but not really sure.

¡me estas llamando! – Are you calling me?/Are you flirting with me? (Said as an assumption from the person being flirted with)

13) No es necesario que me enseñes
