English term or phrase: friend
how do you say friend or buddy and then the phrase pair with your buddy or just pair up? Thank You
Chrissy Paul
prieten / prietena
Explanation:
If what you mean is a boy friend, then the possible Romanian equivalents are :
prieten / amic / camarad / tovaras

"Prieten" and "amic" are the most common.
"Tovaras" usually implies a professional relation, such as being colleagues.

If what you mean is a girl friend, then you have to say "prietena". When the relationship is an intimate one you may
say "iubita".


And now about your phrases :

"To pair with your buddy" or "pair up"
could be translated by "a forma o pereche", "a fi impreuna" when two friends get together to do something.

If what you mean is a more intimate relationship such as the one between a man and a woman who want to marry, then the Romanian is "a se casatori".
