美国人尽管喊了多少年的「性开放」,但很多美国人在谈情说爱方面,仍然喜欢采用一些含蓄保守的词句或语句,表现文明和礼貌。以下举一些例句,或许能说明一二。

to have a crush on (someone);
to feel an instant magnetism;
to catch one’s eyes; to hit it off;
to have the hots for (someone);
to be attracted to each other.
这些片语,都是描写男女间互相倾慕,两情相悦,有吸引力或一见锺情。
例如:
 He (she) has a crush on her (him) (他对她十分爱慕) 。
 He felt an instant magnetism when their eyes met. (他们见面时,他立即感到磁性般的吸住)。
意指女的外表吸引; 如果是 she felt …… 那么就是指男的外表吸引。
 A nice-looking girl caught his eye.(漂亮的妞儿吸住)。 注意:不用 eyes。
 He was introduced to a pretty woman and they seem to hit it off immediately.(他被介绍给一位漂亮女子後,他们似乎就一见锺情)。 或
 They were attracted to each other the moment their eyes met.
 When he met her, he had the hots for her.(当他见到她,他就对她爱慕不已。)(多半指 sexual attraction。)
例如说,女对男的没有兴趣,那么也可以说:
 She did not feel any attraction toward him.(她对他毫无兴趣); 或
 He is the man for whom she feels no attraction, catch or no catch.(不管他的条件好或坏,她对他就是没有兴趣)。
这里的 catch,可指财富、地位、名望和外表。
to be a lady’s man (或 ladies’ man);
to be a prince on a white horse;
to be a casanova;
to be a womanizer. 
这些都是指男人英俊潇洒,作风奔放,野性旺盛,喜欢在「女人窝」里。例如:
 Mr. Lin has been considered a prince on a white horse.(林先生被认为是白马王子。)
这是中古时代女子对男人的梦中理想,然而现在也有老外认为美男子应该是:全身盔甲灿烂光辉的王子。
 He is a prince in a shining armour.(动词时态:shine, shone 或 shined。)
 Many people think that Mr. Clinton is a real lady’s man.(或 a real womanizer)(许多人认为柯林顿先生喜欢在女人窝里。)  


As a casanova, he has many girl friends.(由於他是美男子,他有许多女友。)
(Casanova 是义大利人,据说是顶尖的美男子,他的全名是:Casanova de seingalt Giovanni Giacomo 在此 casanova 被当做普通名词,故 c 不必大写。

如果形容男人外表魅惑力大,能使女人「如饥似渴」般崇拜他,也可以说:
 He has melted her down and made her knees buckle.(他把她溶化了,使她拜倒他的西装裤下)。
这句话老外通常不用在男人身上,也许因为男子应该比较坚强些吧!或且说:
 So many women swarmed him like bees to the honey.(许多女人看到他,就像一群蜜蜂见到蜜那样蜂拥而至。)

倘若说:…… like flies to the garbage 指像一群苍蝇喜欢垃圾那样,当然就不是恭维了。
to be a beauty queen; to be a dream boat;
to be a cutie; to be a babe;
to be a fox.
这些都是形容女人漂亮,曲线玲珑,身材曼妙,挥身性感或散发一种性感的野性。
例如:
 She is a beauty queen.(= very beautiful)
 She is a cutie.(= pretty and attractive)(漂亮迷人)
 She is a dream boat.(= ideal type of woman)(理想女人)
 She is a babe.(= very beautiful and attractive)
 She is a fox.(= She is a foxy lady = She is sexy.)(她很性感)。
注意:如果说: She is as sneaky(或 cunning)as a fox. 又是指她像狐狸一样的狡猾。

假如女人能使男人拜倒她的石榴裙下或神魂颠倒那么就能说:
 Her beauty (attraction) has caused his knees to shake. (或 to quiver)(她的漂亮迷人使他膝部发抖)。或
 She made him feel up there in the clouds.
(= on clouds nine = on the top of the world)(她使他神魂颠倒,飘飘然如仙。)
其实,所谓「情人眼里出西施」(Beauty is in the eyes of beholder),世上的美或丑,只是主观的看法而已。
to fall in love with (someone);
to fall head over heels in love; to love (someone)from head to toe.
都是指男欢女爱,沉溺情海,或是爱得晕头转向。
例如:
 They have fallen in love with each other for years.(他们相爱多年)。(动词时态:fall, fell, fallen)

 He fell head over heels in love with her.
(= He fell for her head over heels = He is head over-heels in love with her.)(他与她沉溺情海,爱得晕头转向。)多半指很快落入情海。
 He loves her from head to toe.(他从头到脚地爱她)。多指经过较长时间後才热恋, 或
 He falls madly in love with her.

至於男女热恋时「目中无人」或「形影不离」,也可以说
 They are two peas in a pod. (他们像豆荚里的两粒豆子--即形影不离。)
 They only have eyes for each other(and forget the entire world.)(世界上似乎只有他们两个人。)
