1. Tu as de beaux yeux

Yes, big classic one. If you feel like drowning in an ocean of love when looking into the eyes of your Valentine, this one is for you. It means "You got beautiful eyes". Simple but direct.


2. Je veux être avec toi pour toujours

Efficient too. Feeling like the one by your side is THE one? Let them know by telling them "I want to be with you for ever". They'll love it (unless you met that person 5 minutes ago, then they'll probably freak out). 


3. Embrasse-moi !

This, this is you giving consent (and order) to your S/O that you want a big smooch, NOW! Yes, this sentence means "Kiss me!". 


4. Veux-tu m'épouser ?

If you're about to pop the question and would like to be original, this one is for you. Who know? Using the language of love to propose may have magical effects...

Note: be sure your other half speak French... although if you have a knee on the ground and a sort of ring to give, it may give it away anyway... 


5. Je t'aime

"3 words, 8 letters. Say it and I'm yours". Well, more about "3 words, 7 letters. Say it in French and I'm yours". xoxo.


Happy Valentine's Day!
