the happygirl guide to: 100 ways to say i love you in italian

Say "I love you" right now. Even if you're on the morning train go ahead and whisper it as you read this. And again. While hearing it from someone you love can make you smile down to your wiggling toes, we can say it so much that we become numb to it. It becomes like any other world like ottoman.
Now try this.
Sei il sole della mia vita.
(pronounced: say ill soh-lay dell-ah mee-ah vee-tah)

Isn't that lovely? It means 'you are the sunshine of my life' in Italian.
(Click here to hear how the phrase is pronounced. Tap the listen icon in the lower side of the left box.)

There's also:

Ti mangierei! (I eat you up!)

and my favorite: Mi hai fatto perdere la testa. (You made me lose my mind.)

I'm currently in my third semester of Italian and while researching conjugated verbs I came across a list of  100 ways to say I love you in Italian. It's just so sweet and OK, a little cheesy, but mostly sweet.

Tonight instead of saying "I love you" to your partner or your mom or your awesome dog try these phrases:

Tu sei una stella...la mia stella. (You are a star...my star.)

Sei importante per me. (You are important to me.)

Sono abbagliato da te. (I am dazzled by you.)

Tu sei un dono del cielo. (You are a gift from the heavens.)

Sei la cosa piĆ¹ cara che ho. (You are the dearest thing I have.)

Solo tu mi capisci! (Only you understand me!)

Sei il mio tesoro. (You are my treasure.)

Everything just sounds lovelier in Italian, doesn't it?
