When thinking about how to profess your love to someone, you wouldn’t dare to think of using German sentimental statements, would you? Well, that’s totally understandable since there’s a well-worn stereotype that German is an ugly language and sounds too harsh and aggressive. Straw. Straw. Straw. Blech. Sorry, not sorry to burst your bubble, but that old trope is so last season and definitely not true. If you really pay attention to how German is spoken, you’ll hear a unique and relaxing sound (not to mention that the German accent varies throughout Germany). Therefore, professing your love in German is more than possible without sounding offhand.

Like many languages, there are more than three ways to say “I love you” or “Ich liebe dich” in German. You can say “I love you” in a very pink like bubblegum way or you can say “I love you” in a very timeless way. Actually, there is an endless list of declarations of love in German. Here is a short list to get you started.
