Are you in love with a Ukrainian man or woman? Great choice 😀 Now you should learn some Ukrainian love phrases to impress your beloved one and make him or her love you more. Here are 10 Ukrainian love expressions and romantic words with different variations you could use every day. ❤️️

1. Я кохаю тебе! Я люблю тебе! – I love you

I love you in Ukrainian

Love is so important for Ukrainians that we even have two different words to name it:

  • Кохання – only romantic love
  • Любов – romantic love + all other kinds of love (to your family, country, or borshch)

Therefore, there are two ways to say I love you in Ukrainian:

  • Я кохаю тебе!
  • Я люблю тебе!

You can interchange them, as well as add some дуже (very much) at any place:

  • Я дуже тебе кохаю!
  • Я тебе дуже люблю!
  • Дуже-дуже-дуже люблю тебе!

2. З Днем святого Валентина! – Happy Valentine’s Day!

День святого Валентина is Valentine’s day in Ukrainian. Although it is a new holiday for us, Ukrainians do celebrate it nowadays. So, give your beloved one a валентинка – St. Valentine’s card with a greeting:

  • З Днем святого Валентина, коханий!  – Happy Valentine’s Day my love (man)!
  • З Днем святого Валентина, кохана! – Happy Valentine’s Day my love (woman)!

You can also add some other phrases from this list 😉

3. Я сумую без тебе, Я скучив (скучила) – I miss you!

Distances can be hard. There are several ways to say I miss you in Ukrainian:

  • Я сумую без тебе I am sad without you

  • Я скучила I’ve missed you (if you are a woman)

4. Будеш моєю дівчиною / моїм хлопцем? – Will you be my girlfriend / my boyfriend?

In Ukrainian, the words for a boyfriend and girlfriend are the same as a boy and a girl – хлопець і дівчина. If you want to ask a guy to be your boyfriend in Ukrainian, say:

  • Будеш моїм хлопцем?
  • Хочеш бути моїм хлопцем? 




If you want to ask a girl to be your girlfriend, choose one of the questions:

  • Будеш моєю дівчиною?
  • Хочеш бути моєю дівчиною?

5. Ти такий гарний / Ти така гарна! – You are so beautiful!

Giving compliments is one of the keys to the heart (another one is cooking Ukrainian food 😉 )

If you are giving a compliment to a girl in Ukrainian, you can say:

  • Ти така гарна – You are so beautiful
  • Ти чудова – You are great
  • Ти неймовірна – You are amazing

If you are saying this to a man, just change the ending of the adjective:

  • Ти такий добрий – You are so kind
