Flirting in Hebrew

Is there a lesson for flirting in Hebrew? In French, and I believe Spanish, too, there is at least an option to buy flirting instruction with Lingots.

Some languages have them, some languages don't.

0nly French, I think

Google, my friend, is the greatest teacher of them all.

Even Google can be difficult though. I've found bits and pieces as far as flirting or love and relationship in different places but no really solid central resource. Kind of an issue with a lot of Hebrew, beyond very beginner or tourist type phrases, unfortunately. Someone did a TinyCard set for slang. It would be cool if someone wanted to do a flirting themed one.

If you wanna, you can just ask me for anything. I'm a native Hebrew speaker so like I am willing to help with anything, really.

Are there equivalents in Hebrew like "honey, my love, darling, sweetie, etc"? I'd love to know :D

I know a few of these. Motek (מותק) is sweetie (and very common not just used romantically, also can be used for both men and women), ahuvati (אהובתי) which is feminine and ahuvi ( אהובי) are my love or my beloved. My favorite term of endearment, which is very unique to Hebrew (and my understanding is despite how this sounde in English, it's actually used quite casually, though a native could clarify further) Neshama, or Neshama Sheli which means My soul (נשמה שלי). It can be used for a guy or a girl.

I'm sure there's many more and i can probably think of at least a few more. Israeli pop songs are great for picking these and other romance and love related words given how common it is to sing about love. For the fun of it, here's a song I liked called Neshama Sheli by mizrahi singer Sarit Hadad. https://youtu.be/NKNiD31pSUo Check out that chorus. "You're my life. You're my soul. You're the whole world to me. You...."

That's because everyone has their own kind of flirting ;)

Yeah, you could just turn your keyboard and search results to French, and then just look up 'Ways to flirt' in French, and then you got it :)

Yes, that is the case.. Although there is not in Spanish, but there is in French, so why not in Hebrew (בעברית)?
