30 Steamy Flirting Phrases in Vietnamese to Impress Someone

So you've found someone special in Vietnam that you're interested in but you don't speak Vietnamese? Don't worry I've got you covered! Here are all the common phrases that the locals use when wooing someone. This "How to flirt like a Vietnamese" guide help you get started from 'getting to know the person' to 'going out on dates'!

The phrases below use "anh" as the first person pronoun (I) for male. If you're a lady and want to use these phrases to impress a Vietnamese guy, just switch the pronoun from "anh" to "em".


Flirting in Vietnamese

Asking for personal info

Before we dive into the different ways to sweet talk to a girl, let's have a look at how you can ask for basic personal information.

1. Em đi một mình hả?
: Are you here alone?

2. Em có bạn trai chưa?
: Have you got a boyfriend? (=Do you have a boyfriend)

3. Số điện thoại của em là gì?
: What is your phone number?

4. Facebook của em là gì?
: What is your Facebook account?

In Vietnam, Facebook remains to be the most popular social media platform, compared to Instagram or Twitter. So you definitely should ask her Facebook account and start messaging there (and check on her profile if you wish).

: What are doing now?

7. Anh nhớ giọng nói của em
: I miss your voice

8. Anh nhớ mùi hương của em
: I miss your smell

9. Lúc nào anh cũng nghĩ đến em

10. Anh không thể đợi để được gặp em
: I can't wait to (be able to) see you


Asking a Vietnamese girl out

Going out on a date

Feeling more confident with your love interest? Let's ask her out on a romantic date. I can't speak for all Vietnamese girls, but a typical date that includes movie, dinner and live music bar would be considered to be very romantic. So, go ahead and take your chance with the following phrases:

11. Cuối tuần này em có rảnh không?
: Are you free this weekend? (cuối tuần = weekend)

12. Tối mai em có rảnh không?
: Are you free tomorrow night? (tối mai = tomorrow night)

13. Mình đi chơi nhé!
: Let's hang out!

14. Mình hẹn hò nhé!
: Let's date! / Let's start dating

15. Em muốn đi xem phim với anh không?
: Do you want to a watch movie with me?


Compliment your date

So now you have successfully asked her out! Giving her nice and sincere compliments here and there throughout your date is essential for it to be successful. And of course, don't overdo it.

16. Hôm nay em đẹp lắm!
: You're so beautiful today!

17. Tối nay em đẹp lắm!
: You're so beautiful tonight!

18. Em cười rất là đẹp.
: You smile very beautifully!

19. Anh thích mái tóc của em
