    Hola a todos:
    que quiere decir "noviete" (de España) en inglés?

    a "fling"?
    friends with benefits? (aunque se dice amig@ con ventajas)


    se me hace que "fling" es la mejor opción, pero agradezco mucho sus aportes...
    mil gracias,

    "Noviete" means a boyfriend, but not a very formal one. It's not as informal as a friend with benefits, which is only a sex relationship, but it's not as formal as a proper one. Usually it's applied to the relationships you have when you are a teenager or quite young (althoug you can have a "noviete" even being 50). For example, imagine a family having lunch, and the father tells his 20 year old daughter:
    - ¿Y qué, no tienes algún noviete por ahí?
    Also, you could apply it to a boyfriend before the girl considers the relationship serious enough as to introduce him to her parents.
    FYI, remember you can say as well "novieta" (teh femenine form).

    Hope that helps.
