    frech grinsen

    We should hook up then. *frech grins*
    Comment
    Oft als *fg* abgekürzt.

    "To leer" geht schon in die richtige richtung. Gibt's da was besseres?
    Im prinzip geht es darum, dass man eine andeutung macht, allerdings in "positivem sinne" - also nicht rotz-frech oder sowas.

    Danke im voraus!

    Like John Wayne said in one of his Western movies: Take that silly grin off your face or I'll do it for you. :-))

    isn't "cheeky" more like "frech"?

    @#3, 4, and 5:

    cheeky is more BE
    cheeky is more BE

    I wasn't being intentionally "cheeky"; after I clicked "Absenden" Leo took its time and decided to post three times, sorry...

    I guess it's LEO being cheeky.

    I think impish fits best here.

    If I read LEO right "cheeky" and "silly" would be wrong in this case since the other person (most probably) _will_like_ that kind of grin.

    Is simply *leering* common / understood as well?

    Leer would not fit well here; it has negative connotations.

    If BE is OK, then "cheeky grin" suits well, I think. If you're looking for something more US-oriented, maybe "a suggestive grin" would fit.

    Depending on context, could also be:

    smart-ass grin
    sassy grin
