comment Is it correct to say “It is pathetic to see some people only see the lust side of a girl”?
This question really seems to be asking how to respond to a bunch of haters. While we sympathize, that's not really about English language and usage.

comment why is googling the definition of “aviance” so difficult?
@Janus Tim remarked in the comments as well. I think oerkelens and I posted at the same time, both of us with the French spelling, and lead the pack there. Pretty funny.

@Tim That is extremely funny. I changed the spelling on that thrice and still got it wrong. It's the French spelling; I'm sure that's why it got me.

comment why is googling the definition of “aviance” so difficult?
@Marthaª That's true, but this question is unlikely to help future visitors. If it were broadened into something like "is this a commonly confused phonetic pair", we could leave it open. As it is, I think the user has a helpful answer.

Maybe that person was pronouncing it incorrectly, or maybe you misheard, or maybe you misremembered, but everything you describe suggests that you are looking for ambiance.
