Quiero que seas mi novio. (make sure that he knows that you mean boytoy, er, boyfriend, as that could be construed as a marriage proposal).

  • You might want to take notice that qfreed (correctly) placed the verb ser in the subjunctive mood because "quiero que" was an expression of a wish - Izanoni1 Sep 10, 2009 flag

"seas" is the present tense of the subjunctive mood. Using the subjunctive says something like "I wish you were my girl friend" instead of "You are my girl friend." It's a way to talk about something that isn't necessarily true yet.

Quisera ser lo tuyo. Me gusta andar contigo. In that sense of andar contigo, that's a real big context thing. If we were talking about where our relationship goes from here y tu mi digas a me, yo quiero andar contigo, I would hear it as "I want to go with you" or I want to be your romantic interest.

  • yes, true, in Spain we say: quiero salir contigo :) - 00494d19 Sep 11, 2009 flag

Okay, another question...what does "seas" mean? It's in gfreed's answer

0 Vote

what does "seas" mean

Seas is subjunctive of the verb to be.

Quiero que is always followed by subjunctive.

So that would mean it's a form of the verb "ser" right?

In what tense is "seas" in?

  • "Subjunctive" is a "mood". The tense for this word in the subjunctive mood is "present". Seas is present tense, subjunctive mood. (I think..well, I will check and delete this comment if wrong.) - Janice Sep 11, 2009 flag
