Definition: Torpe (pronounced: torr-peh); Spanish; noun
1. A man who is desperately in love with a woman, but cannot admit his feelings or approach her.
Why I love this word:
This word can really be used multiple ways with any group of individuals. It means when someone is awkward or too shy to pursue amorous desires. I also read on someone else's blog that the English equivalent would be "dork" if you are translating the Tagalog slang 'torpe,' which just made me laugh.
