I guess troublemaker, "perturbateur de troubles" is somewhat close. But wondering if there's a phrase or word that keeps the "naughtyness" kind of connotation. I'm trying to flirt with a girl I met in France but having trouble translating this one.


Maybe Un homme/une femme à problèmes.

e.g. from petitdiable's blog:

Eviter les "filles à problèmes".

Est-ce que tu vois ce dont je parle? Les filles à problèmes...ce ne sont pas celles qui ont des problèmes, parce que là on est toutes dedans, ce sont celles qui en créent.

That might be too:

Le genre de mec/nana qui n'apporte que des emmerdes.

Perturbateur de troubles doesn't work. Perturbateur already means troublemaker so that would mean Someone troubling the troubles...

You can refer to a woman or girl that you find attractive but that you know might be trouble and say:

  • Attention! Qui s'y frotte, s'y pique!

That is:

  • Careful! Might get hurt!
