@ #9 That depends on the person.
@ #10 It's ment to be used for describing people. But I see what you mean. (^)
@ #11 Collating? I am ware of the fact that "rude" and "tender" are usually mutually exclusive - giving a broad spectrum is what I intend. Would using "Ich kann trampeln und schleichen - je nachdem…" in a sentence make no sense as well?
According to LEO "rude" also means "unanständig" that's not always negative. Does "rough" include "unanständig"?
"to be tender", as said I would use it as "zu jemandem zärtlich sein". What would be the right word then?
@ laalaa & all Yes, still dating website. I intentionally omitted that because it should not play a role at all. However, I described the setting by saying "in einer Liebesbeziehung".
Is what I want to express so hard to guess? Some more examples then…
* One brother takig the others neck in his armpit. Yes, this can happen without meaning to hurt the other.
* Yanking your partner around or holding on all-out and giving a kiss.
* Being in public and touching the pecs/butt/… of the other person not really caring if somebody is watching.
* Pushing (beiseiteschieben) of other persons decisively w/o asking to move first.
* Using vulgar language (in public).
* There is a scene in BigBangTheory where Sheldon tells his girlfriend that he needs to punish her by spanking her. She get's excited (doesn't show it) and says "I was a bad, bad girl." because this would be one of the first encounter of sexual proximity. This is not exactly what I mean but maybe it shows the direction.
I wasn't mentioning "bad boy" earlier - would you say that to a guy (not ironically)?
