    Re: Was that your girlfriend from the other day?

    The first one is not natural.

    Do you mean 'Was that your girlfriend I saw the other day/yesterday?'

    I am not an english teacher, but for me: number 1 doesn't sound right.

    Javierdl97, as a native English speaker, please use correct capitalisation and punctuation on the forum. The learners will assume that everything you write is correct simply because you are a native speaker.

    Batman45, your first sentence makes it sound as if the person in question has a different girlfriend every few days.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
