5 Expressions to say I Love You in Indonesian
Before you prepare a nosegay, please make sure you remember, at least one of the below mentioned expressions.
No need to say all and just choose the best for you.
Saya suka kamu (Sa-ya su-ka ka-mu)
Equal to “I like you”. The expression is commonly used by teenager or high school lovers. That’s why it’s not too convincing if it is used for adult female/girls.
Probably, the next ones should be more suitable.
Saya sayang kamu (Sa-ya sa-yang ka-mu)
The sentence is more strong to say your affection. But, there is still a “but” because it can be interpreted that “you care of her”. So, depend on the situation, if in romantic room or atmosphere, then it won’t be misunderstood, it can mean “I LOVE YOU”.
Saya butuh kamu (Sa-ya bu-tuh ka-mu)
With a whispering voice, and if you kneel in front of her, this expression should be so powerful. You can transfer to her about how desperate you are to have her in your life.
Saya menginginkanmu (Sa-ya me-ngi-ngin-kan-mu)
I want you! Strong and demanding. However, probably if you are a beginner in Indonesian, it is a bit difficult to say. This may even disturb the romantic atmosphere you set up. So, please just use this as your reference.
The last expression to say I Love You in Indonesian is
Saya cinta kamu (Sa-ya cin-ta ka-mu)
This is best expression to show your affection to your loved one. Almost no chance it will be misunderstood. This is exactly the same as I Love You.
However, this sentence can also be used by a mother to her children.
If you don’t know how to say them, please check this audio. However, definitely you should not follow my intonation. It’s too flat and nobody will fall for you if you just copy how I pronounce them. It’s for learning purpose.
You need more full of passion, full of love. Whispering or softly tone is recommended. I suggest to bring flowers or invite her to a romantic place.
Anyway, please listen to the audio.
Once again, say it with passion in front of your loved one.
