    Hi All,

    I'd like to ask you a favour. Could anyone translate into English the following word...

    "It was really great to know you and to get a cotta"

    I couldn't find on the dictionary a proper translation for that Italian word that I don't understand.
    I think it can be some kind of italian slang. I just want to know whether it's rude or not.
    I really appreciate your help.

    Cotta could mean "crush", but we'd need the context to be sure. The phrase itself gives me the impression it's really a crush.

    Many thanks Silvia for your quick answer.

    Two italian friends came to visit Madrid last weekend, and we had a good time together. And one of them said me that on a SMS when they left.

    Does "crush" mean something similar to "fall in love"?
    Sorry for asking so much, my native language is Spanish.

    Silvia, thanks indeed!!!
