Re: Puedes ayudarme por favor?

I'm not a Latina or anything but I studied Spanish in high school and uni.

The sentence means 'We keep giving ourselves the pleasure'.

Vd & Vds are abbreviations for usted & ustedes respectively. They are the formal you in Spanish but take 3rd person verbs, example:

Usted habla = You are talking [sir or madam]
Ustedes hablan = You [all] are talking

Basically you use usted/ustedes with strangers, people who are older than you (non family members) or above you in rank (like in a company), or any situation in which you want to show the other person respect.

Espero que ayudete.

" Nos estamos dándonos el gusto " is incorrect since you use " nos" twice .

You can say " Estamos dándonos el gusto " or " Nos estamos dando el gusto ".
