I love you in Thai


Many people want to know how to say I love you in Thai language, and there are many answers to that depending on the situation. When foreigners come to Thailand, many of them fall in love with not only Thai culture, but they also find Thai women to be attractive in many different ways. I grew up outside of Bangkok in a city called Nakhon Prathom, and I never believed that I would ever be interested in a foreign man, let alone begin dating one! Little did I know that I would end up writing different publications on the subject and actually living abroad for a few years.


I love you in Thai


Getting back to the subject at hand, Thai women love to hear this phrase as long as it’s said to Thai women in the right way. Let me explain. Even if you say the Thai equivalent of, “I like you,” or “Phom chawp khun,” this can bring on a sense of love, especially for young Thai girls. Thus, one must be very careful about what is said so as to not give off the wrong impression. The strong, 100% clear way of saying I love you in Thai “phom ruk khun.” The word “ruk” sounds similar to the English word “rock.” Since many foreigners understandably cannot read the Thai language, I will do my best to explain how everything sounds in phonetic English.


Different words in Thai for love:


  • Phom chawp khun: This really means that I like you, but some girls will take it more seriously than others. It’s usually safe to use in the beginning of a relationship.
  • Phom mii kwam chawp mak: This is a very strong like, almost a revelry that is a bit more serious than just chawp mak. It’s showing a bit more serious intention with a friend or girlfriend.
  • Moot na: In Thai this is spelled มทนะ. Depending on the situation, this could be really good to say to your Thai love.
  • Phom ruk khun: Men say this to a woman to really mean I love you in Thai. Some young Thai girls may take this as a step leading towards marriage, so only use this if you are very serious about obtaining a Thai bride.
