    Hi people, does anybody know a good translation in spanish for the words 'stand-offish' and 'absent-minded'. Are they similar to each other?
    Thanks in advance.

    Here is the Translation:
    "Stand-offish" = Falta de cordialidad o Poco amable.
    "Absent-minded" = Distraído, Ensimismado, Ido, Olvidadizo.

    I think those are different expressions, let's wait for more opinions.

    Yes, completely different expressions which is reflected in their different translations in the WR dictionary.
