Ready? Here are the top 15 Love phrases & compliments to know.
1. How to say “I love you” in Hebrew
- Ani ohev otkha (male to female)
- Ani ohevet otkha (female to male)
Saying I love you in Hebrew, or in any language is an absolute must. Especially if you want to get your point across or to remind your love. Crucial phrase to know.
Or, if you want to say “I love (name)” in Hebrew, try this:
- Ani ohev et (name) – (male to female)
- Ani ohevet et (name) – (female to male)
2. “Happy Valentine’s Day” in Hebrew
- Yom a’havah sa’me’ach
- והבה שמם אח
Is Valentine’s Day approaching? This will be necessary then. But please, have a present in hand as well. No-one likes being told “Happy Valentine’s Day” without also getting a present.
3. “Will you be my Valentine?” in Hebrew
- Ha`tihiye ben zugi be`khag ha`ahava?
- התהיה בן זוגי בחג האהבה
Perfect if you want to ask your crush out in Hebrew. But only if you’re in a Valentine’s celebrating country. Israel doesn’t “celebrate” it but has a similar holiday called Tu B’Av which is called the holiday of love. It’s a good time for weddings. It’s the Israeli Valentine’s Day.
4. You mean so much to me.
- Ata kol kakh khashuv li.
- אתה כל כך חשוב לי.
Expressing your love aside, there are other great phrases. This is one of them. Most Hebrew learners won’t learn this – as it’s not a “must-know” phrase. However, this definitely makes you sound a lot better in Hebrew.
5. “You’re so beautiful” in Hebrew
- At kol kakh yafa.
- את כל כך יפה.
Honestly, what girl doesn’t like hearing this? I’d say this is the #2 most important phrase here, after “I love you.” Telling a girl that she’s beautiful is important. And if you’re learning Hebrew – memorize this!
6. I think of you as more than a friend.
- Ani khoshev alaikh ke`yoter miydida.
- אני חושב עליך כיותר מידידה
Something most Hebrew learners won’t know. This is a bit of an advanced phrase! Want to step out of the friend zone and let them know it’s serious? Good one to make yourself sound a more experienced speaker.
7. A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you.
- Mea levavot ihiyu meat midai kdei lehakhil et kol ha`ahava sheli elaikh.
- מאה לבבות יהיו מעט מדי כדי להכיל את כל האהבה שלי אלייך.
Now we’re getting poetic. What a phrase. Again, typical learners don’t get to learn these. This is more of natural, and very passionate, Hebrew language.
8. Love is just love. It can never be explained.
- Ahava hi pashut ahava. hi af pa-am lo musberet.
- אהבה היא פשוט אהבה. היא אף פעם לא מוסברת.
Just in case they ask you why you love them. Well, who knows! Sorry for you being so beautiful! Yeah, just tell them this.
9. Say “You’re so handsome” in Hebrew
- Ata kol kakh yafe.
- אתה כל כך יפה.
And if you’re a woman that want’s to compliment a guy in Hebrew, don’t worry, you’re not forgotten. Guys like compliments too!
10. I’ve got a crush on you.
- Ani daluk alaikh.
- אני דלוק עלייך.
It’s not love yet. But there’ something there. This is the perfect Hebrew confession phrase. Everyone has a crush and will have more. So, you will need this at some point.
11. You make me want to be a better man.
- At goremet li lirtsot lihiyot adam tov yoter.
- את גורמת לי לרצות להיות אדם טוב יותר.
This is for guys to use on an Israeli girl. Does she make you want to shave? Put on a suit? Lose weight? Be the best at being yourself? Tell her that!
12. You are my sunshine, my love.
- Ata ha`keren or sheli, ha`ahava sheli.
- אתה הקרן אור שלי, האהבה שלי.
Good, warm expression and compliment. Something textbooks won’t teach and you’d have to ask a native speaker for.
13. Words can’t describe my love for you.
- Milim lo yekholot letaer et ha`ahava sheli elekha.
- מילים לא יכולות לתאר את האהבה שלי אלייך.
Now we’re getting serious. Can’t describe your love? Well, we can’t all be Shakespeare. And maybe, words actually just aren’t enough. This an advanced Hebrew phrase.
14. We were meant to be together.
- Noadnu lihiyot yakhad.
- נועדנו להיות יחד.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any more serious – this phrase comes along. Save this for your marriage. A bit of a bold statement!
15. If you were thinking about someone while reading this, you’re definitely in love.
- Eem khashavta al mishehi bizman she`karata et ze, ata lelo safek meohav.
- אם חשבת על מישהו בזמן שקראת את זה, אתה ללא ספק מאוהב.
Just a silly, fun phrase. Were you thinking of anyone? I bet you were thinking “Oh, this Linguajunkie character is so handsome.” Well, you’re definitely in love. Be sure to confess in the comments below!
