@Flimzy: Could we put a "historical lock" on this question? It was heavily upvoted and favorited at the time it was asked. It is "off topic" today, but not when it was asked. And the maybe close the other, newer question as a duplicate?

comment Como se dice 'elevator pitch' en espanol?
@AdamBrown: "Quickie" has the same connotations in American English. I was using the term "metaphorically" (although an elevator is a place to have one of the original). It was a bad (and unintended) pun that I referred to as "slang" but served as a stepping stone to the translation.

Welcome to the site: An upvote for a good answer. Possibly a "bonus" for an "acceptance," but I like to wait a day or two before making up my mind.

comment How can I distinguish between “girlfriend,” “fiancée” and “bride”, which are all “novia”?
Is it true that the "strongest" term is prometida for a fiancee? I was told that in some Spanish-speaking cultures, if a woman wants to discourage "attention," she should wear only her engagement (and not wedding) ring. Apparently, a"jaded" married woman is considered "fair game" for a "proposition," but a (newly) affianced woman in the throes of love is not.
