Being kind and being nice are two different things. Being nice is a mannerism. Being kind is being considerate and caring for other people.
Too right. I thought this phrase sounded rather pervy too. Dad is looking out for his girl.
It depends on the situation. When have you last told someone "Your daughter... is very nice" It sounds creepy, you'd probably say cute or any other adjective.
The Spanish word 'simpatica' here means 'likeable', unlike the English word 'sympathetic' which means 'showing pity'. This is just one of many 'false friends' that can cause misunderstanding and embarrasment. A web search will find you more.
Right. There is a term for Spanish words which resemble English words but don't mean the same. I forget what it is. Maybe someone can supply it.
The meaning behind this is that being sympathetic makes you nice, i.e. simpático/a. Even if most have long forgotten of this.
KIND has a different Spanish word as a translation. There is a bunch actually. See my message above for the list. And you wanted to mean KIND in Spanidh you would use a correct Spanish word. You asked.
