So…how was your Valentine’s Day? Did you go out with someone cute? For sure you did! Just to make your amorous skills even better here are 10 lovely words and phrases which will definitely impress your date (and not only on St. Valentine’s Day):
1. To flirt (verb)
If you flirt with someone, you want to show that you like them by what you say or how you act.
You can flirt in a few different ways by speaking e.g. “you look really cute today!” or by text or written communication (eg. “luved how u were smiling in class today xox.”).
Tip: When we write ‘love’ in text or instant messages we often write ‘luv’. This is not grammatically correct and does not exist in the dictionary, but when we write on Facebook, Twitter or text messages we want to be as short as possible. (e.g. ‘luv u’).
Extra Tip: When we sign a message with ‘xox’ it means hugs and kisses or we can just end a message with kisses ‘xxx.’
2. To have a crush on someone (phrase)
If you have a crush on someone, it means you like them A LOT and you would love the opportunity to be more than friends with them. Maybe you should try today ?
3. Would you like to go out with me?
Do you really like someone and want to spend more time with them? Perhaps you want to ask them to go to a movie or go for dinner, but you don’t know how? Never fear, this phrase is really simple and it’s the actual asking that’s more difficult.
4. Serenade (verb/noun)
Beautiful, starry night and a man playing the guitar and singing a serenade (a romantic piece of music) under your balcony? Yes, please!
5. Table for two (phrase)
A MUST if you want to impress your date in a restaurant! Order a table for two and enjoy your company and a candlelit dinner (romantic dinner with candles)!
6. Admirer (noun)
Admirer comes from the verb ‘admire’ and it refers to the person who respects or loves you. Sometimes on Valentine’s Day you may receive a Valentine’s Day card without a name, signed ‚from your secret admirer,’ too shy to reveal their true feelings and name.
7. Be Mine (phrase)
A real Casanova phrase! However, this is a common line in a Valentine’s Day card and it’s a cute way of saying “I’m into you!”
8. Darling (noun)
If you call someone ‚darling,’ it means that you like them. It’s another way of saying my ‘love’ or ‘babe’ or ‘sweetheart’.
9. Candy (noun)
Who doesn’t love candy? The word ‚candy’ refers to any kind of sweet or chocolate and if you’re partner has a sweet tooth (loves sweet things) then giving them a gift of candy on Valentine’s Day is ideal!
10. To fall in love (phrase)
To fall in love means that your feelings develop and you go from liking a person to having a much stronger more passionate feeling for them.
Have a LOVEly evening!
