"Eep op orp a-a" means "I love you."
When you graduate from alco-pops, try Norman-style ciders (AKA "cidres" - the word is French, not Belgian?? for "Cider"). They're dry and taste like champagne. Unfortunately expensive imports in the US. But hopefully some of the single-gear-bike monkeys doing artisinal things are starting up a cider mill for adults.
Fortunately, when you get to a certain age, your penis stops making most of your acquaintances. So it is possible to be "just friends." Really. I mean it. You can just sleep here with me, and I won't touch you.
