But wait! What is Valentine’s Day? And why do Americans celebrate it?

Although it is not a public holiday, Valentine’s Day is celebrated by many around the world. And in the United States, both children and couples celebrate it.

It’s common for school children to exchange Valentine’s Day cards to express friendship. Often the classroom is decorated in red, pink, and white hearts.

Of course, if you’ve ever watched a romantic comedy film from the United States, you probably know that couples also exchange cards with words of affection. Common gifts are flowers and chocolates. And couples often spend the evening together, maybe at a restaurant or a nice dinner at home.

If you’re trying to find the right way to say I love you in English, the expressions below are perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day of the week!

20 New (and Romantic) Ways to Say I Love You in English

I adore you.

You complete me.

I’ve loved you from the first moment I saw you.

I’m in love with you.

I’m crazy about you.

We’re meant to be together.

You’re my soulmate.

I’ve totally fallen for you.

You’re too good to be true.

You’re the one.

You are the one for me.

I’m mad about you.*

I’m smitten with you.

I can’t live without you.

You’re the air I breathe.

You make my world go round.

You’re the light of my life.

I am nothing without you.

You’re my everything.

It was you. It was always you.


*Careful: to be mad about someone is different from to be mad at someone. To be mad about someone is to be crazy about them or in love with them. To be mad at someone is to be angry with them.
