10 Romantic Cebuano Expressions

If you are coming to visit someone you are romantically involved with in Cebu, you have to be ready and equipped with some romantic expressions to win your lady's hand and heart (body and soul).  You have to show your romantic side, exaggerate it if you must because Filipino ladies want to be wooed and pampered.  Here are some romantic expressions that will be handy to you.  You just need to learn to use them in the appropriate situation.

1. I miss you.
Gimingaw ko nimo.

2. I love you.
Gihigugma ko ikaw.

3. I am in love with you.
Nahigugma ko nimo.

4. I want to marry you.
Gusto ko mangasawa nimo.

5. You are the one I have been looking for.
Ikaw ang dugay ko na nga gipangita.

6.  My heart is yours.
Imo ang akong kasingkasing.

7.  I like you.
Ganahan ko nimo.(generic)/Nakagusto ko nimo.(romantic)

8.  I will love you till the day I die.
Higugmaon ko ikaw hangtud sa adlaw sa akong kamatayon.

9.  Please accept my love and end my suffering.
Palihug dawata ang akong gugma ug hununga na ang akong pag-antos.

10. I was born for you and you were born for me. 
Ako gipakatawo alang kanimo ug ikaw gipakatawo alang kanako.

 Of course you probably have romantic expressions that are not listed here and if you have any question about the expressions or if you need more romantic expressions, simply enrol in my online lessons for a minimum of 10 hours and you will learn more.  Hangtud sa sunud nga leksiyon.  Ayu-ayo!!!
