Surprise your Dutch or Spanish counterparts (media naranja) by using the practiced Spanish accent to use the following to show your love once again in Spanish for your friend, husband or wife, etc.

El Día de San Valentín is for many a day where you emphasize the love for another person. Logically it is a very commercial day but that does not mean that you can be extra sweet on that day. This year, however, you are lucky because you can give extra attention by using the following Spanish nicknames for your loved one.

Mi vida

Mi vida (pronounced mi bida) literally means "my life" but can also be used to indicate that you love someone very much and that that person is your life, very slimy.

Media naranja

Cielo or mi cielo

Cielo (pronounced as sjielo) is a very sugary word and literally means "heaven" and with which you want to indicate that someone is heavenly ... an angel or Ángel in Spanish.
