Romantic Romanian Phrases
Do you want to surprise someone special with romantic Romanian phrases? Many of those who want to learn to speak Romanian are doing this because they are in love with a Romanian. This is why I decided to make a list of useful romantic Romanian phrases for everyone.
Instructions for Use
While most of these phrases are perfectly suited to be put in a written message, please do not attempt to say them to your beloved, unless you want to make him or her laugh. This might sound funny and awkward if you try to pronounce them without knowing the rules.
If you want to give it a try anyway (because you speak some Romanian or you don't care and take the risk of being funny), go practice the Romanian pronunciation first or ask someone in a language forum to teach you how to pronounce it correctly.
The following phrases can be equally used for guys and girls unless otherwise stated.
