I think you’re suffering from a lack of vitamin ME!

What with today being Valentine’s day and all, the language of love deserves a look in.  Back in the day when technology was limited and people had to pluck up the courage to talk to people they fancied, the cheesy chat up line was king.  Here are my top 5 faves:

  1. Did it hurt? (What?) Falling out of heaven.
  2. Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?
  3. If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put U and I together.
  4. I lost my number. Can I have yours?
  5. You must be tired; you’ve been running through my mind all night.

I really hope that lot didn’t make you throw up!!

Why not take the opportunity to cosy up to some love-related phrasal verbs:

  • Ask sb out= To ask someone to go on a date
  • Chat sb up= To talk to sb for the first time who you fancy
  • Fall for sb= To fall in love with somebody
  • Get (back) together= To (re)start a relationship
  • Go out with sb= To go on a date/be dating sb
  • Make up= To reconcile after an argument

And for if things go sour:

  • Break up/ split up = To end a relationship
  • Break down= To be in an emotional crisis
  • Cheat on sb= To be unfaithful/have an affair
  • Drift apart= To lose closeness in a relationship
  • Put up with sb/sthg= To tolerate/ deal with

 

Ok, time to go.  It’s not you, it’s me. Honestly.
