    Just two sentences

    I want to send a humorous email to a girl in my class. I looked at my dictionaries to write this. It is not easy.

    Could you please correct my Russian version?

    Привет

    Вы - единственная девственница, которую.
    я когда-либо встречал. Я очень рад знать Вас.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello

    You are the only virgin I have ever met. I am very glad to know you.

    When my daughter was 6 she said
    "Когда я была маленькой девственницей..."
    instead of
    "Когда я была маленькой девочкой..."
    Do not repeat the error

    i wouldnt make refrence to her being a virgin it i was you. russian women arnt ss open to talking about their age/ sex habbits as you'd hope. find something else to complement her about.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    I think he asked for a translation, not advice on how to live his life... but I might be mistaken

    Let him find out for himself what to say and what not to say

    Anyway, if it is a girl in class, don't you think you'd use the more familiar term ты? It's not like they are perfect strangers and they are the same age. I say yes!

    Therefore:

    ты - единственная девственница, которую я до сих пор встретил.

    Мне очень приятно быть с тобой знакомым.
    Hei, rett norsken min og du er død.
    I am a notourriouse misspeller. Be easy on me.
    Пожалуйста! Исправляйте мои глупые ошибки (но оставьте умные)!
    Yo hablo español mejor que tú.
    Trusnse kal'rt eturule sikay!!! ))
