    Default Boyfriend/Girlfriend Translation in South America

    Hello, I am needing some help with some slang words for boyfriend/girlfriend that would be spoken in spanish in Uruguay, Paraguay, Ecuador, Colombia, and Venezuela. Any help on this would be much appreciated!

    Hello there, I believe in most countries the words used are Novio/novia.

    Thank you so much, but I am looking for more slang terms that are more indigenous to the area. If anyone knows any please let me know!

    In Venezuela: Jeva/Jeba o Jevita/Jebita, the same in Colombia I think.

    In Ecuador the couple are told Pelados or Chavos.

    Just saw on website how they say novia in Costa Rica : Cabra. Although I'm not so sure about it since I don't have a native near by! Good luck!

    Well, in Colombia you can say pollo/polla referring to boyfriend/girlfriend respectively, but, be careful. I think that's JUST FOR COLOMBIA. You might be insulting someone if you use it elsewhere.
