He has a boyfriend works too ;D
Indeed, "kjæreste" is gender neutral. :)
Thanks. I've just been wondering if it does.
as does partner
Opened the comments to write the same!
In order to know if someone means they are in a homosexual relationship how do you ask that
First, you should ask yourself whether you have any reason to ask.
If the answer is yes, you could try "Er du homofil?", "Er du i et homofilt forhold?", or "Er kjæresten din en mann?".
I would never just ask someone without reason to believe do aha. That's rude. But thank you for the response!
A question that works for either gender:
Har kjæresten din samme kjønn som deg?
Does your girlfriend/boyfriend have the same sex as you?
I reported "he has a dearest" because it was marked wrong even though that's what the Tips sheet says it translates to.
Absolutely agree, dearest is an excellent gender-neutral translation
Is the noun "kjæreste" just masculin? Or can I use a feminin form as well: "kjæresta mi"?
it’s and en noun, not an ei noun, so it would be “min kjæreste” or “kjæresten min.”
Takk for det!
