The definition from Yabla (which is prettier in Ninchanese ):

  • to discuss passion and talk of love (idiom); to express love with terms of endearment
  • billing and cooing

And to translate the sentence:


The first part of the sentence without translating 谈情说爱 would be something like:

Based on your level, you can 谈情说爱 with fourth Lord. 

In this context, how should 谈情说爱 be translated?

  • Just a side note, 四爷 in this sense is probably a just a nickname, as opposed to its literal meaning (at least, in a contemporary context).
