First, "eres" does NOT mean "your." It means "you are," which can be abbreviated as "you're." (And while I'm at it, the spelling is "entail.")

I have never heard Europa used in this way (although when it comes to slang, anything is possible). Are you sure it wasn't "Eres de Europa" or "Eres europea."

Well, there's the Europa who was carried off by Zeus (in Greek mythology). Presumably she was pretty (since one must suppose that Zeus could choose anyone he wanted [and he often did]).

At least one (but he didn't make the connection right away).

You see it is this guy from work, he doesn't speak English, so after work we talk in Spanish, and a few weeks ago I gave him my email. Now he sends me messages all the time. Yesterday he made that comment and I was a bit confused as to the meaning. I think, no- I know that he likes me, but who would really say something like that if that is what it really means'

I suggested it because it's the only famous Europa that I know of (the theme has also been depicted by several well known painters). However, I have no way of knowing if that's what he was referring to (and, if it was, it seems an odd comment to me).

I can't see how there is any other possibility. Maybe he's a well read guy. On the other hand, you might want to clarify his intentions, because Zeus was so taken by Europa's beauty that he decided to seduce, or ravish, her, which is a nice way of saying he kidnapped and raped her. Gods could do that sort of thing back then.

He's probably just wooing you.

Well, thanks for all your help. I guess I better figure out exactly what he was getting at by asking him directly. Thanks though!

It comes from Homers famous poem "lliad". Europa was tricked, carried off and seduced. wink wink.
