I thought boyfriend was buachaillchara?
That's a literal translation of it, and reeks of Béarlachas. Very often it's just buachaill for 'boy' and 'boyfriend', same as how fear can be used for 'man' and 'husband' (though chéile can be added to formalize the distinction)
"Buachaill chara" is the standard Irish for boyfriend, as I learned in school. It should be accepted here. However "buachaill" on its own is fine as well.
Wait, so if you're chatting to a girl how do you know if she's telling you she has a kid or a boyfriend? Crucial difference!
That's more than a little confusing, how is someone supposed to know if you mean someone has a boy or a boyfriend?
Duolingo corrected me as Tá gasúr aici. What does gasúr mean?
Gasúr is another word for buachaill.
