How To Say “I Love You” In Tagalog

Saying I love you in Tagalog isn’t as straightforward as you think. The direct translation is:

Mahal kita.

I love you.


Take note that mahal also means “expensive” in Tagalog. For example:

Ang mahal ng cellphone.

The cellphone is expensive.


There’s also an old-fashioned, or should I say “poetic,” way of saying I love you in Tagalog:

Iniibig kita/Iniirog kita.

I love you.


Here are other ways/variations of saying I love you in Tagalog:

Mahal din kita.

I love you too.


Minahal kita.

Mahal na mahal kita.

I love you very much.


Mahal na mahal din kita
