In this post I will provide a list of 15 adjectives to describe a person you love in Spanish. This will help you impress your significant other and show your romantic side. 

Take into account that while most of these adjectives have a feminine and masculine form, some of them don’t. Can you guess which ones?

What is an adjective?

Before we start I would like to clarify the meaning of “adjective”. Here is the definition by Merriam Webster’s dictionary.

“Adjectives describe or modify—that is, they limit or restrict the meaning of—nouns and pronouns. They may name qualities of all kinds: huge, red, angry, tremendous, unique, rare, etc.”

Therefore, words like hermoso, lindo, feo, malo, aburrido are adjectives or “adjetivos” in Spanish.
