I hope i don't get you lost"Ich hoffe, dass ich dich nicht verloren" I hope I don't seduce you "Ich hoffe, dass ich nicht verführen" They're kind of closel

32 - That isn't how you say that in German. Verloren is a verb that implies a physical object being lost. (google translate sucks FYI). In reality, the two sentences are very different from eachother. Your first sentence means - I hope I don't lose you

it's more like: ich hoffe, dass ich euch/sie nicht verliere/verführe. and yeah they are easy mix up

I bet they knew what you were really trying to say, so don't sweat it too much. I applaud you for at least having the courage to communicate with them, though. More than I would have done.

I'm sorry, but that's not German. Sounds more like an old Babelfish translation. I hope you don't get lost: Ich hoffe, dass Sie sich nicht verirren. I hope I don't seduce you: Ich hoffe, dass ich Sie nicht verführe. Anyways, I don't think they were offended or anything, they probably just had a good laugh.

austrian chaos: zerst amoi hallo! und: he didn't say "i hope you don't get lost" but "i hope i don't get you lost!" auf jedn foi: schene grüße aus oö ;)

actually "I hope you dont get lost" is in german "Ich hoffe dass ihr euch nicht verläuft" and "I hope I dont seduce you" would be "Ich hoffe dass ich sie nicht verführe" theyre not that close...

Have you even seen a German porno? Makes 2 girls 1 cup look like a Dairy Queen commercial. Now I'm craving a DQ blizzard

23 is prolly one of the biggest pervs on here. and not just because of that comment but because of all of them.

"Oopsies, I dropped my pen, hope you don't mind if I bend over and pick it up." Weird guy-"Not at all, pick it up for me nice and slow." "Okay, I hope I don't seduce you" Seems pretty logical to me. Then again, I am a socially inept loser and the only sexual contact I've ever had was when I was drunk with my cousin. Wait a second, I'm not from Arkansas!

Well they are probably homophones, sound alike but are different in meaning. Of course, I can't be sure because I don't speak german :P

Really? I'm sorry, are you fluent in German? It's a bloody difficult language to learn. They have very different language rules, and way more words that you not only have to learn the meanings of, but also the differences in the meanings of similar words, and when to use which one. So don't just say "know what you're saying" because it's really not that simple with German.

Still, though. I don't think OP should be blamed for trying. Sh!t happens. Hopefully they knew what OP meant.

51, actually, no, it really isn't that difficult. I taught myself German, starting at age 12.

117- Obviously it would be easier if a) you were younger, and b) you moved there. I'm talking about trying to learn it on your own, as an adult, in an English - or any non German - speaking country. Much harder.
