    Cool love encounters

    Does "love encounters" make sense in English?

    It is for encounters of lovers, of course. If not, how would you say that?

    It seems "love affairs" is not quite suitable, because "affairs" seems to be for "adventure" in a sense of furtiveness, isn't it? And that's not the case.

    Thank You

    Re: love encounters

    Tryst also implies meeting in secret. Perhaps rendezvous?

    Re: love encounters

    It's not a phrase I can recommend using.

    If I saw it, I would assume it was a quick meeting for sex.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
