    Default How does this work?

    I need help with the following "Dime cuanto necesitas, amor".

    I think it means: How much do you need, love?

    For the use of the word love in this case (Venezuelan), is it romantic or familial love, or just a normal way to reply to the opposite ***. In other words may I infer that this person likes me or is he just being friendly, or can I tell?

    Thank you.

    P.S. I'm new to the forum, so if this is not an appropriate questions for this site, please let me know.

    Hey there,

    You are right, it could mean that.
    But without anymore context, thats all I can tell you.

    Rgds,

    You are in the right place, but I agree about the context. In many English speaking areas, a store clerk I've never met might ask me "Tell me how much you need, love" when I ask to buy something behind the counter.

    It could just be a term of endearment. Without more context or the relationship between the first and second person, you can't speculate.
