How would you translate the following sentence?
我们 刚 认识 一 个 月
I am learning how to use the character " 刚", but I have run into an issue while reading about it online. On the website that I was reading, the above sentence was translated as "we just knew each other for a month"; however, from everything that I had read earlier, it seems like it should be "We just met each other a month ago". Am I correct, or can 刚 be used in both ways? (by "both ways", i mean both in the construction "just happened (x) time ago" as well as the construction "something happened just for (x) amount of time". And if it can indeed be used in both ways, how would I express "we just met a month ago"? How do I know when it is being used in which way?
Thanks so much,
