I had a Hungarian male flirt with me in an online game for days. Just doing nice things that would help me when I was losing. Stuff like that.  It's a rapid paced game where your actual photo shows.
Today he said he was going to look at my fb.

He comes back and says "Katie.  You re simply"

I said "simply what? "  he says "yes?

When I told him that didn't make sense,  he sent me a flower and then a ring in the game.

At first I thought he was telling me I looked plain or ordinary.  
But after the gifts I didn't know if he didn't finish what he was saying or if something said in Hungarian directly translated into "you're simply"  but has And connotation of meaning something else. Like "you're simply beautiful" or  it's a term that might mean "engaged to be married"  and he was asking me..

I know its silly but I'm very curious.

I don't think it makes any sense. "simply ...." requires a adjective there. I can't think of anything that would translate as "simply" and would be some sort of a compliment in Hungarian.

You should have asked him to tell you in Hungarian and I could have helped you.

I am really sure, he probably wanted to express, you are unsophisticated/unpretentious.
Aren't you? :-)

Come on, no one sends a virtual flower after telling a girl she's unsophisticated or ordinary:)
It could be simply gorgeous without gorgeous. And without noticing something is missing. Some people just don't read back, even in the middle of confusion.

BTW there is a HU slang "szimpi" which means "szimpatikus"=likeable, but he most probably wouldn't try to translate this to "simply".:)
