(non) fare per + qualcuno
Parola del giorno | Word of the day
Today's Parola del Giorno is the verb expression (non) fare per + qualcuno, which means to (not) be for someone.
When someone is or is not for something, what we are really saying is that someone is not suited for a particular thing. For example, if you get stressed out easily when flying (like me), you might say "Long flights to far-away destinations are not for me."
See our example below:
La mia ragazza parla sempre di andare a vivere in campagna fra gli animali e la natura una volta sposati, ma vivere fuori città proprio non fa per me.
My girlfriend always talk about going to live in the country among the animals and nature once married, but living outside the city really is not for me.
