Aficie comes from the Spanish word “Asfixia” which literally means “Interruption of breathing”. However, the meaning of Aficie in the Dominican Republic is the feeling of being very attracted to a person and deeply in love.

The aficie is that person who produces in another a state of deep infatuation. The relationship with the term suffocation is that the person when seeing the object of his love feels that he is short of breath. For this reason, the word is associated more with a whim or enchule than with a real or true love. Also, it is more consistent with a teenage love.
