I apologize if the question is confusing- I am completely new to the Italian language and need this for a story I am writing.
I have two male characters who have just met, and one is attempting to flirt with the other on first greeting. In that circumstance, would the man most likely say something along the lines of, "Hey, amico," or "Hey, bello"? I am attempting to create a kind of "Hey, cutie," kind of vibe, for lack of better words.
Again, if my word usage is completely wrong, please correct me!
