How To Say I Love You In 100+ Different Languages

No three words are harder to say than the words, "I love you." When you go out on that first date, especially when it's love at first sight, you might feel the emotions starting to stir.

But once you do tell your beloved exactly how you feel, the newness can wear off with the every day. And no one wants the most important words in the world to have a sort of ordinary feel to them.

It's normal to want to find new ways to tell your one true love how you feel in handwritten love letters to love songs. Everyone loves hearing the words I love you because of all the things that simple phrase means.

I love you means, I'm here for you through the good times and the bad. I love you is how we say to someone, "You're a part of me, don't ever go."

If you're struggling to find new ways to say "I love you" — have some fun. Everyone can say it in their language, but not many can say it in over 100 different languages!
