    Default Text Message

    Hi,

    I received this text message from someone and I just can't figure out what it means!! I more or less speak Spanish and regularly text/talk in Spanish but this is too complicated, I guess.

    Una sonrisa tuya es la gloria, es un tributo a mi querer. Una mirada es la victoria que rinde homenaje a todo mi ser.

    I understand all the words but I feel like I'm missing something... This is the best I can translate it:
    One of your smiles is glory, it's a tribute to my love. One look is victory that gives homage to all that I am.

    But that sounds strange to me, lol. Anyway, if anyone can offer advice that'd be awesome, thanks!!

    Laura

    Wow...he is good. You translated it well. It's a poetic pick-up line. He sounds quite enamored. Best of luck.

    Here is the Google translation:

    A smile of yours is the glory, is a tribute to my wish. A glance is the victory that pays tribute to all my being.


    What I interpret is that it says that:

    You being happy, makes me happy. You taking a look at (noticing me), makes me feel wonderful.

    Of course it is a bit literal and there is a chance that there is an underlying meaning. Of course I have never heard this phrase before, at least not in this wording. The only thing I can think of is that it is a form of flirtation or flattery.
