Subject: Looking for a wife?

Date: Thu, 01 Mar 2007 21:08:13

Hello, my friend

It's great you are reading my letter! Because I wanted you to read it! I want to find a second half in this world and if you want the same, we can learn each other better and build wonderful relationships, can't we? All you need in a woman, I have. I am pretty, smart, I like to make house cozy and comfortable, I like cooking. You can ask me why I am still single then? I can say that men in our country don't value women! Do you want to know me better? Find me here http://www.randomURL.omg

Hahaha, Russian mail order bride? Do you use "a second half" in English?

I didn't know those still existed. I'll have to look into that...

haha, I was wondering the same. we use "wederhelft", which is practically the same. I thought you could probably figure out what is meant by that with your knowledge of languages.

Sounds like something I would post in a couple of years.

So, what's your response?

Yes you can say second half without sounding foreign. Although I suppose it's more common for guys to refer to women as their better halves.

We use second half in Slovak, seems like Russians do too. Apparently it's other half in English.

I suggest you look deep into your wallet first, Jake.

"weder" pretty much means "again". so "wederhelft" (helft=half) is like something complete was devided into two pieces & those two pieces found each other, to once again become one.

how ..corny. :/

but you could also kinda define it in words like "wederzijds begrip" (mutual understanding/understanding from both sides) with "other", so yes, that sounds more like it'd be said in other languages.

I've heard guys refer to their girlfriends/wives as their better half, like wcm said.

'Betere helft' in Dutch.

"Ma moitié", "my half", in reference to spouse. In French.

It's "my half orange" in Spanish. Sad but true.

In England it's the other half, as in "I'll just check with the other half" or "better not let the other half find out". But it's only ever used when not in the presence of "the other half".

missus is used quite often too, even if you aren't married

"Where's the missus today"
"Down't Pit"

etc...

Yeah I think I'm even guilty of saying "missus", although I don't work in the pits, is it a Northern thing, because I haven't heard many Southerners use this terminology.

When I'm with someone I tend to refer to them as "my gash".

I say "the missus" all the time. I've never heard abyone say "the other half" or the "better half". Without a doubt the best analogy for wife is the cockney expression, "trouble and strife". Not that I'd ever say that around my missus :P

When talking about people's husbands/wives casually, i usually refer to them as his girl or her boy. Other half sounds a little to civilised for my liking.

How is this possible? It's everywhere in England.
