In this lesson, we will cover the love words and expressions in Turkish. In English, you can use words like 'honey, darling, sweetheart' to call the person you love. Let's start with a list of love words used to call the person you love in Turkish. A general point here is that you always use these words with possession in Turkish. Instead of saying 'honey', the word you use in Turkish means 'my honey'. I will also give the direct translations of these words to English. Although the meaning of some of these words may seem strange, they can all be used to call the person you love.

Turkish English

my love

canım my life
bi tanem my only one
hayatım my life
sevgilim my darling
balım my honey
tatlım my sweety (used for girls)
güzelim my beautiful (used for girls)
çiçeğim my flower (used for girls)
gülüm my rose (used for girls)
meleğim my angel (used for girls)


Now, let's see some common love phrases in Turkish and their meanings:

Turkish English

Seni çok seviyorum. I love you very much.
Senden çok hoşlanıyorum. I like you very much.
Benimle çıkar mısın? Would you like to go out with me?

Benimle evlenir misin? Will you marry me?
