comment What's the difference between “darf” and “kann”?
"Can" vs "May". You likely "can" kiss him/her but if he/she don't like to, you're "not allowed to".

comment What's the meaning of “würde”?
In any language, words exist that are spelled equally but may have nothing in common. Ex. "Ball" in German and English is either a round object for playing, or a formal party. Another example in German: Gerade/gerade. In your case, you're comparing the noun "Würde" (dignity) with a conjugation of "werden" (to become) which happen to be spelled equally (except for the capitalization).

Regarding your question... Did you try to answer the question yourself before asking?

comment Asking someone to switch to English
@Raphael "wenig" and "ein bisschen" are equally fine. I don't see any reason to use one over the other. Regarding subjunctive: technically speaking you're right. However, this is not the way people speak; thus, I stay with my version.

comment The difference between “Ereignis” and “Eventuell”
Ereignis is a noun, meaning event. Eventuell is an adjective or adverb, meaning possible or possibly, respectively. A dictionary had told you. So, what was your question again?
