mas atrevida

Si acaso me converto mas atrevida, hay un hora o un día que es mejor por un llamada a tu teléfono?

Does this work? I want to make a phone call and have been stalling because it is such a challenge to listen and understand without benefit of facial expression. I don't even know how to communicate that concept in writing. But it's time to become braver and try a call. Is there a better way to say it'

I could ask a Cuban friend, but that would take some time. No problem using the verb, so send it.

Good luck!

We'll be looking forward to seeing you around.

I agree with Heidi, atrevida/o also can be understand as audacious, someone who likes to take risk in the life.

Thanks Heidita. That's what I thought it meant!
That clears up some confusion -- I was really doubting my nice Velázquez dictionary.
This letter is going to Cuba, to a very forgiving person but I would be mortified to come across as rude.
muchas gracias.

Pisacaballo, this really surprised me. atrevido is a very normal adjective used in Spain.

Barbara, so, it is important to know where you are going to write this letter to!

Atrevido means daring and brave or challenging! I would call myself "una mujer muy atrevida" .
so, let me rephrase your sentence, just in case:

¿Si acaso me atrevo a hacerlo, hay una hora o un día concreto para llamarte y que no te moleste?

If you use the ord "atreverse" as a verb, there cannot be any prolem. soemtimes adjective may have a different result (as pisacaballos says)

yikes. thank you thank you.
There's an Orishas song I like called Atrevido, though most of the words are too fast to understand. Guess I'll just leave it there.

"atrevida" is not a word you should use to describe yourself.
"atrevida" usually means a rude person or somebody who does not respect other people.

"Sos una atevida" is a very very painful insult.

Instead of using "atrevida" use "ansiosa"

ok, for academic purposes, if a person was in love would it still be weird?

thanks for the quick reply and correction

Yes

En el caso que me ponga más pertinente, estaría bien que te llame a una hora o día específico?

"atrevida" sounds weird it is like if you were in love with the person you are talking to.
