Italian boyfriend laughed really hard when he heard this one.

Did he explain to you why he was laughing? I have it on authority from THREE Italian men... It really isn't something to ever say to a woman! =)

I live in Italy with him and I understood what it meant right away, mostly because I've heard it before.

But in swedish you can say :" Du är gullig som en gris " You are sweet like a pig.
