Can also be a joke. "A day without you is like a garden without flowers. Easy to maintain."
This is a lot better than any of the pickup lines in the other flirting skills.
als - as (equation); if
zoals - like (similarity)
- Only als:
I watch out the window as/if it rains. - Ik kijk uit het raam als het regent. (can't put neither "like" nor zoals here).
- Both, but different meaning:
He speaks as a lawyer. - is a lawyer. (als)
He speaks like a lawyer. - not a lawyer. (zoals)
- Both, same meaning:
He is a lawyer as/like you. - Hij is advocaat (zo)als jij.
- Only zoals:
People like/such as lawyers... - Mensen zoals advocaten...
French pick-up lines give me creepy stuff like living in someone's shoes to be with them every step of the way. Dutch gardening section gives me beautiful, meaningful lines.
Great line for the ladies (or your lover) in the Netherlands... I love this saying.
