'I love you' in thai

Are you wondering how to say I love you in Thai? It’s very simple.

If you are a guy you say ผมรักคุณ (pŏm rák kun).

If you are a girl you say ฉันรักคุณ (chăn rák kun).

Or you can leave out the personal pronoun and just say รักคุณ rák kun

Let’s break it down:

Guys say the word “I” by using ผม pŏm.
Girls say “I” by using ฉัน chăn.

รัก is a verb meaning to love and คุณ means you.

You might also hear รักคุณนะ rák kun ná. The นะ () at the end is just a polite particle that makes the sentence softer.
