Dating in Chinese

If, however, things don't go that smoothly, here are some expressions and sentences that will come to your rescue. These are blunt and to-the-point rejections that are honest but considered polite. On the contrary, don't feel too upset if you hear these responses from someone you are pursuing.

你太无聊了!

Nǐ tài wúliáo le!

You're too dull!

Proposing in Chinese

We certainly hope that you never have to hear these sentences. Now, here are some pointers that will help you determine how far you've reached in your romantic relationship. Rocket Chinese is moonlighting you every step of the way!

我想和你在一起。

Wǒxiǎng hé nǐ zàiyìqǐ。

I want to be with you.

我们交往吧!

Wǒmen jiāowǎng ba!

Let's be together!

嫁给我,好吗?

Jiàgěi wǒ,hǎoma?

Marry me, will you?

What to say to the person of your dreams?

Looks like love is in the air! If you have found the person of your dreams (梦中情人 mèngzhōng qíngrén), here are a few romantic lines that will help you express your love.

The third and fourth lines are borrowed from one of the most well known love stories from Chinese literature, The Butterfly Lovers (
梁山伯与祝英台 Liáng Shānbó yǔ Zhù Yīngtái). This is an epic love tragedy that is sort of the equivalent of Romeo and Juliet. Hence, you could use the protagonists' names to address to undying love. For example, if your lover is female, you can say that she is your 祝英台 Zhù Yīngtái, who is the female leading role in this story; and if your lover is male, he would be your 梁山伯 Liáng Shānbó, the male leading role.

我爱你爱到天荒地老、海枯石烂!

Wǒ àinǐ ài dào tiānhuāngdìlǎo、hǎikūshílàn!

I will love until the end of time! (literal: I love you love till the sky desolates the earth gets old, the ocean withers the rocks crumble!)

执子之手,与子偕老。

Zhí zǐzhī shǒu,yǔ zǐ xiélǎo。

[I want to] Hold your hands, and grow old with you.

你是我的祝英台。

Nǐ shì wǒde Zhù Yīngtái。

You are my Juliette.

你是我的梁山伯。

Nǐshì wǒde Liáng Shānbó。

You are my Romeo.

But we all know relationships and marriages aren't perfect, and people fight from time to time. So here are some lines to help you calm the situation, chill, or kick someone out. (Or if very unluckily your other half is yelling these things to you, you probably need to get out!)

让我静静。

Ràng wǒ jìngjing.

Leave me alone. (literal: Let me silent silent.)

离我远点儿。

Lí wǒ yuǎndiǎnr。

Get away from me.

我再也不想看到你!

Wǒ zàiyě bùxiǎng kàndào nǐ!

I never want to see you again!

If unfortunately things don't work out in the end, here's what to say to break up a relationship and/or end a marriage.

我们分手吧。

Wǒmen fēnshǒu ba。

We should break up.

我们离婚吧。

Wǒmen líhūn ba。

We should get a divorce.

Well, we certainly wish you the best in your relationships! Meanwhile, why not check out some more lessons on Chinese phrases next?
