Well, I looked up the term "relative pronoun" since this is something I'm not familiar with (Thanks for the thread cmon!)

I think I understand, and probably have been using them in a limited scope without knowing what they were.

Ese es el cafe que mis novia compró. - This is the cofee that my girlfriend bought. (The 'de' before the 'que' isn't necessary here, right?)

Ella es de que fue a la supermercado. - She is the one who went to the supermarket. (If I'm understanding this right, you use 'de' here since the antecedant is a person. ¿Verdad?)

Use la que, Fazor:
Ella es la que fue al supermercado.
Where did you get the idea that you must use a preposition when there is a person involved?

In English you wrote "which makes me"

Now had you written"...that makes me..."

See the difference? I guess both are grammatically correct, I do not know, but both are used in both languages. right?

The website I was reading had it worded fairly confusingly. Plus "de que" was used in the first post's example that used a person.

No, the problem is apparently on my end. That's why I shouldn't attempt to think prior to having my morning coffee (which was late this morning).

Disregard. I'll reset my brain and start over.

Pronouns are fine. Check your vocabulary and conjugation.

Okay, since I've had coffee now (but now am suffering from Lunch Deprivation); let me try again.

Ese libro es de que leí el poema. - This book is from which I read the poem.
Ese libro es que tiene el poema. - This book is the one that has the poem.
