Keep the cold showers at bay this February, take “hey now!” to hook up, and venture beyond a peck on the cheek this amour-worthy season.

Speak from the heart, talk of temptation, woo, win, and wax romantic with a few knee-melting, pillow-worthy French phrases:

Out at the bar:

  • Je peux vous offrir un verre?  Can I buy you a drink?
  • Vous venez souvent ici? You come here often?

Cuddling up:

  • T’as de beaux yeux, tu sais? You have beautiful eyes, you know!
  • J’ai envie de t’embrasser. I want to kiss you.

Commitment Ready:

  • Je t’aime. I love you
  • Je veux passer ma vie avec toi. I want to spend my life with you.
  • Veux-tu m’épouser? Would you marry me?

Spending the 14th blocking contacts on your phone? Escaping the memories of forgettable “swipes”? Speak truth and motivate your moving on in stylish French fluency:  

Speak truth:

  • Ce n’est pas toi. C’est moi.  It’s not you. It’s me.
  • Nous devrions commencer à voir d’autres personnes. We should start seeing other people.

Let ’em down easy:

  • Soyons seulement amis.  Let’s just be friends
  • Parfois tout s’écroule, afin de mieux reconstruire. Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together.

It gets better:

  • Je décide de mon ressenti, et aujourd’hui je choisi le bonheur.  I am in charge of how I feel, and today I am choosing happiness.
  • A un certain moment de ta vie, tu réaliseras que certaines personnes peuvent rester dans ton cœur mais pas dans ta vie.  At some point in your life, you will become aware that some people can stay in your heart but not in your life.
