    I have a problem.

    I want to do something special for a Filipina girl that I've been dating. I want to go steady with her. I'm planning to ask her to be my girlfriend but I want to do it in Tagalog. Does anyone know how I can do that??? I speak and understand Tagalog but I just don't know how can you be romantic asking a girl to be your girlfriend. Can someone please help. Thanks in Advance.

    Maari ba kitang (ki-tang) magiging kasing-irog/ kasintahan?
    Will you be my boy/girlfriend?

    You can also say, Maari ba kitang maging nobya?

    No one really uses the term kasintahan nor kasing-irog anymore. Nowadays, you can always use the term 'girlfriend'. Other terms for 'girlfriend/boyfriend' are: irog, nobyo/nobya/, shota/syota (short for short-time relationship).

    I'm not sure why Google translated it that way. But the Tagalog term for girlfriend and boyfriend togther is magkasintahan.

    Sinta = darling/ person
    Kasintahan = girlfriend/ someone you are in relationship with
    Magkasintahan = relationship that both kasintahan are in

    Hope this helps.
