15 Feb Valentine’s Special: Popular Terms of Endearment in 5 Languages
Love knows no boundaries, and sometimes you can find yourself falling in love with someone who doesn’t speak your language well. This Valentine’s week, why not fall in love with a new language and surprise your better half with a multilingual valentine?
Definitely one of the most romantic languages in the world, French speakers are spoilt for choice when it comes to expressing their feelings for their special someone.
Oh mon amour! – Oh my love!
Mon chéri – My dear
Je t’aime plus que tout au monde! – I love you more than anything in the world!
Je t’aime – I love you
Spanish users are very big on using terms of endearment in their speech. Some commonly used phrases include:
mi amor – My love
corazón – Sweetheart (literally, heart)
While most German speakers sound serious most of the time, they do fall in love just like anyone else. Here are a few terms of endearment in German:
Ich bin bis über beide Ohren verliebt – I’m head over heels in love
Ich liebe dich – I love you
Du bist die Liebe meines Lebens – You are the love of my life
When using expressions of love in Japanese, being indirect is advisable.
愛してる Aishiteru – I love you (a serious expression that is usually reserved for couples)
好きです Suki desu – I like you (use this if you want to confess your feelings for someone)
안녕, 내 사랑~! (annyeong, nae sarang) – Hello, my love!
난 네 거야 (nan ne geoya) – I’m yours
넌 내거야 (neon nae geoya) – You’re mine
