I’m doing Bunpro and Wanikani at the same time, and recently I’ve encountered 出来る on both. Wanikani says it means “to be ready; to be made; to be able to do,” which seems consistent with other definitions I’ve seen online. Example sentences such as “見ることが出来る” (to be able to see) and “スポーツが出来る” (to be able to play sports).
This was all fine until I hit this example sentence on Bunpro: " 彼女が出来てからどんどんお金が減っていく" (translated as: since I got a girlfriend, my cash has been rapidly decreasing.). Would this be more literally translated as, “since I was able to get a girlfriend,” implying that getting the girlfriend is an achievement? Wanikani also says this verb is super common and has a wide range of meanings, so I would appreciate any input anyone has on the range of its usage.
Thanks in advance!
