Any help with corrections both in English and in Spanish, are highly appreciated! :thankyou

Please ask any grammar questions or anything you don't understand about the corrections on the vocabulary and grammar category! 8-)

Mi propuesta: No necesito a un hombre fuerte, sólo un café fuerte.

I had read that the RAE had backtracked on this again (since 2010), but never have seen it in print. Where did you see it?

I don't need a strong man, only a strong coffee.

I found this is a 2016 book on Ortografía
Real Academia Española. Ortografía escolar de la lengua española wrote:Pueden escribirse sin tilde los demostrativos este, ese y aquel, sea cual sea su función (Esta es la casa), y el adverbio solo, incluso en casos de posible ambigüedad (Estaré solo [‘ solamente’ / ‘sin compañía’] un mes).
So I guess the RAE did not backtrack on omitting the accent mark on solo.   qfreed

Una primera impresión es siempre muy fuerte, y por eso debe ser buena porque después es muy difícil cambiarlo.

A first impression is always very strong, and so it must be good, because after it is very difficult to change it.

You will never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only option.
