19 Ways to Say I Love You in Ukrainian

Want to say I love you in Ukrainian?

Well, here are the 10 ways to express your feelings. Do you need them all? No. But if you’re learning the language, the more the merrier. The more you know, the greater your range of expression.

So, here are all the fun ways to say I love you and I like you in Ukrainian. Take a look.

1. I love you in Ukrainian – Я тебе люблю

  • Я тебе люблю
  • Ya tebe l’yubl’yu

It’s always good to know how to express your feelings in another language that you learn. This is how you say I love you in Ukrainian. Just remember that this phrase is casual so you can say this phrase to a friend or a peer. If you wan to be more formal and romantic, here is the formal version:

  • Я вас люблю
  • Ya vas l’yubl’yu
  • (formal)

Anyway, the Ukrainian language is rather flexible. You can switch the words and say “Я люблю тебе” and it would mean the same.

2. I love you – Я тебе кохаю

  • Я тебе кохаю
  • Ya tebe koh’ayu

Remember, you can’t say “Я тебе кохаю” to a family member or a friend. This phrase means that you are in love with the person. So, say it to your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife.

Don’t worry, there are other ways to express your sympathy and friendly love to other people. Keep on reading to learn how.

It’s also possible to change the words places. You can say “Я кохаю тебе” and it conveys the same meaning.

3. I’m in love with you – to a male: Я закоханий в тебе – to a female: Я закохана в тебе

  • For a male:
  • Я закоханий в тебе
  • Ya zakoh’anyy v tebe
  • For a female:
  • Я закохана в тебе
  • Ya zakoh’ana v tebe

The first sentence can be used by male speakers and the second one is for the females.

4. I like you – Ти мені подобаєшся

  • Ти мені подобаєшся
  • Ty meni podobayeshs’ya

You can say it to someone you like. It doesn’t express very strong feelings as “I love you” or “I’m in love with you” in Ukrainian.

5. I can’t live without you – Я не можу жити без тебе

  • Я не можу жити без тебе
  • Ya ne mozhu zhyty bez tebe

This is a very emotional and strong way to say I love you in Ukrainian. You can use it for both men and women. However, be careful when you use it. It’s a pretty big thing to say.

6. I adore you – Я обожнюю тебе

  • Я обожнюю тебе
  • Ya obozhnyuyu tebe

Here you can switch the words and say “Я тебе обожнюю” and it would mean exactly the same.

7. Love ya! – Люблю тебе

  • Люблю тебе
  • Lyublyu tebe

“Люблю тебе” is the shorter form of “Я тебе люблю”. You can say it anytime you want, but it’s also very common among the Ukrainians to say it at the end of a phone call with a loved one.

So, if you’re looking to confess your love, then this isn’t the way to say I love you in Ukrainian.

8. You are more than just a friend to me – Ти мені більше, ніж просто друг

  • Ти мені більше, ніж просто друг
  • Ty meni bil’she, nizh prosto druh’

Getting out of the friend zone can be difficult. This phrase can help you try. Results may vary.

9. I have feelings for you – Я маю до тебе почуття

  • Я маю до тебе почуття
  • Ya mayu do tebe pochyut’ya

This another useful phrase for expressing your feelings for someone special.

10. You drive me crazy – Ти зводиш мене з розу

  • Ти зводиш мене з розуму
  • Ty zvodysh mene z rodumu

That is how you say that you’re really into someone.

11. You are everything to me – Ти для мене все

  • Ти для мене все
  • Ty dl’ya mene vse

Here we have another emotional way to say that you love somebody in Ukrainian.

12. I love you with all my heart – Я люблю тебе всім серцем

  • Я люблю тебе всім серцем
  • Ya l’yubl’yu tebe vsim sertzem

The first half of the sentence is “Я люблю тебе” (I love you), which you already know. And all we have to do it to add “всім серцем” (with all my heart) to it. In such a way, you add additional meaning and depth to the basic Ukrainian “I love you” phrase.

13. I love you very much
Я тебе дуже люблю
Ya tabe duzhe l’yubl’yu

We just add the word “дуже” (a lot/ very much) to the basic “Я тебе люблю” phrase. Use it when you want to emphasize your feelings.

14. I’ve fallen for you – Male: Я закохався в тебе – Female: Я закохалась в тебе

  • For a male:
  • Я закохався в тебе
  • Ya zakoh’avs’ya v tebe
  • For a female:
  • Я закохалась в тебе
  • Ya zakoh’alas’ v tebe

This phrase can be literally translated as “I have fallen in love with you”. The word “закохався / закохалась” is used in the past tense here. The first variant is for a male speaker and the second one is for women.

15. You’re the love of my life – Ти кохання мого життя.

  • Ти кохання мого життя.
  • Ty koh’an’ya moho zhyt’ya

16. You are the meaning of my life – Ти сенс мого життя

  • Ти сенс мого життя
  • Ty sens moho zhyt’ya

17. Imagining life without you is impossible – Я не можу уявити своє життя без тебе

  • Ya ne mozhu uyzvyty svoye zhyt’yz bez tebe

18. I want to spend my whole life with you – Я хочу провести з тобою все своє життя

  • Я хочу провести з тобою все своє життя
  • Ya h’ochu provesty z toboyu vse svoye zhyt’ya

This one is a good phrase for a marriage proposal.
