|Spanish term or phrase: apapachar|
|... me gustaría tanto llegar a ser tu mejor amiga, tu compañera, estar contigo siempre, escucharte, apoyarte, consolarte, apapacharte, estar a tu lado en los momentos buenos y malos...|
Yes, this is from a love letter, written by someone somewhere in South America.
Oxford says this is abrazar or acariciar, and Collins that it's abrazar or mimar. So I'm confused. What does she really want to say here? Mimar or abrazar?
Love is a serious business ... don't want to give the guy any wrong impressions....
|to cuddle - abrazar y mimar|
Es un término muy usado en México y se refiere a cariños dados tipo como una mamá a su bebé. Cualquier persona de México te podrá dar una mejor explicación.

|Thanks very much everybody. I also posted this in the Spanish monolingual section, and there are not many people signed up for that, but Andrea's explanation and Gabriela's convinced me that cuddle was the best option.|
