22 Flirting Phrases in Vietnamese | How to express your Love


Before we dive into those 22 sweet phrases, you actually need to know how to address your partner in Vietnamese!

Unlike English where you can simply say you and me, Vietnamese language also takes in account the person age and gender to determine the appropriate pronouns to be used.

However, in the relationship, a Vietnamese couple address each other simply as anh and em, regardless of age (who is older or younger). Anh is used to address the male, or for the male to address himself. Em is used to address the female or for the female to address herself.

Here are a few ways that you can use to address your crush, lover or partner in Vietnamese.

♂ male ------ ♀ female

Address the
person as ...
yourself as ...
♂ anh♀ emyou / me
♀ em♂ anhyou / me
♂ anh yêu♀ em yêuhoney
♀ em yêu♂ anh yêuhoney
♂ chồng yêu♀ vợ yêuhubby / wifey
♀ vợ yêu♂ chồng yêuwifey / hubby

You may also replace the word yêu with iu. There is no such word iu in the Vietnamese dictionary, it simply makes things sound "cuter".


Please note that these phrases use anh as the first person (male), and em as the second person (female). Switch the pronouns as needed.
