1. Common Phrases You’ll Need for a Date

So, you have met your Czech love interest. Congratulations! Who knows where this could take you…?! However, the two of you have just met and you’re not ready to say the Czech word for love just yet. Great, it is better to get to know him/her first. Wow your prospective love by using these Czech date phrases to set up a spectacular first date.

Czech Date Phrases

Would you like to go out to dinner with me?

  • Chtěla byste jít se mnou na večeři?

The important question! In most cultures, this phrase indicates: ‘I’m romantically interested in you’. Flirting in Czech is no different, so don’t take your date to Mcdonald’s!

Are you free this weekend?

  • Máte tento víkend čas?

This is a preamble to asking your love interest on a date. If you get an immediate ‘Yes’, that’s good news!

Would you like to hang out with me?

  • Chtěla byste si se mnou vyjít?

You like her/him, but you’re not sure if there’s chemistry. Ask them to hang out first to see if a dinner date is next.

What time shall we meet tomorrow?

  • V kolik hodin se zítra sejdeme?

Set a time, and be sure to arrive early! Nothing spoils a potential relationship more than a tardy date.

Where shall we meet?

  • Kde se setkáme?

You can ask this, but also suggest a place.

You look great.

  • Vypadáš skvěle.

A wonderful ice breaker! This phrase will help them relax a bit - they probably took great care to look their best just for you.

You are so cute.

  • Jsi tak roztomilá.

If the two of you are getting on really well, this is a fun, flirtatious phrase to use.

What do you think of this place?

  • Co si myslíte o tomto místě?

This another good conversation starter. Show off your Czech language skills!

Can I see you again?

  • Můžu tě znovu vidět?

So the date went really well - don’t waste time! Make sure you will see each other again.

Shall we go somewhere else?

  • Půjdeme někam jinam?

If the place you meet at is not great, you can suggest going elsewhere. It is also a good question to follow the previous one. Variety is the spice of life!

I know a good place.

  • Znám dobré místo.

Use this with the previous question. However, don’t say if you don’t know a good place!

I will drive you home.

  • Odvezu tě domů.

If your date doesn’t have transport, this is a polite, considerate offer. However, don’t be offended if she/he turns you down on the first date. Especially a woman might not feel comfortable letting you drive her home when the two of you are still basically strangers.

That was a great evening.

  • To byl skvělý večer.

This is a good phrase to end the evening with.

When can I see you again?

  • Kdy tě znova uvidím?

If he/she replied ‘Yes’ to ‘Can I see you again?’, this is the next important question.

I’ll call you.

  • Zavolám ti.

Say this only if you really mean to do it. In many cultures, this could imply that you’re keeping the proverbial backdoor open.

  • jít do zoo

This is a good choice for shy lovers who want to get the conversation going. Just make sure your date likes zoos, as some people dislike them. Maybe not for the first date, but this is also a great choice if your lover has children - you’ll win his/her adoration for inviting them along!

go for a long walk

Need to talk about serious stuff, or just want to relax with your date? Walking together is soothing, and a habit you can keep up together always! Just make sure it’s a beautiful walk that’s not too strenuous.

This type of date should only be attempted if both of you love the opera. It can be a special treat, followed by a candlelit dinner!

Going to the aquarium is another good idea if you need topics for conversation, or if you need to impress your lover’s kids! Make sure your date doesn’t have a problem with aquariums.

This can be a very romantic stroll, especially at night! The sea is often associated with romance and beauty.

  • vařit společně jídlo

  • Tolik pro mě znamenáš.

This is a beautiful expression of gratitude that will enhance any relationship! It makes the receiver feel appreciated and their efforts recognized.

Will you be my Valentine?

With these words, you are taking your relationship to the next level! Or, if you have been a couple for a while, it shows that you still feel the romance. So, go for it!

You’re so beautiful.

  • Jsi tak krásná.

If you don’t know how to say ‘You’re pretty’ in Czech, this is a good substitute, gentlemen!

I think of you as more than a friend.

  • Považuji tě za víc než za přítelkyni.

Say this if you are not yet sure that your romantic feelings are reciprocated. It is also a safe go-to if you’re unsure about the Czech dating culture.

A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you.

  • Sto srdcí je málo, aby uneslo všechnu mou lásku k tobě.

You romantic you…! When your heart overflows with love, this would be the best phrase to use.

Love is just love. It can never be explained.

  • Láska je láska. To se nedá vysvětlit.

If you fell in love unexpectedly or inexplicably, this one’s for you.

Ladies, this phrase lets your Czech love know how much you appreciate his looks! Don’t be shy to use it; men like compliments too.

I’ve got a crush on you.

  • Zamiloval jsem se do tebe.

If you like someone, but you’re unsure about starting a relationship, it would be prudent to say this. It simply means that you like someone very, very much and think they’re amazing.

You make me want to be a better man.

  • Přinutila jsi mě, abych chtěl být lepší.

Gentlemen, don’t claim this phrase as your own! It hails from the movie ‘As Good as it Gets’, but it is sure to make your Czech girlfriend feel very special. Let her know that she inspires you!

Let all that you do be done in love.

  • Vše, co děláš, dělej s láskou.

We hope.

You are my sunshine, my love.

  • Jsi moje sluníčko.

A compliment that lets your lover know they bring a special quality to your life. Really nice!

Words can’t describe my love for you.

  • Mou lásku k tobě nelze vyjádřit slovy.

Better say this when you’re feeling serious about the relationship! It means that your feelings are very intense.

We were meant to be together.

  • Byli jsme si souzeni.

This is a loving affirmation that shows you see a future together, and that you feel a special bond with your partner.

If you were thinking about someone while reading this, you’re definitely in love.

7. 15 Most Common Break-Up Lines

Czech Break-Up Lines

Instead of moving towards marriage or a long-term relationship, you find that the spark is not there for you. That is a pity! But even though breaking up is never easy, continuing a bad or unfulfilling relationship would be even harder. Remember to be kind to the person you are going to say goodbye to; respect and sensitivity cost nothing. Here are some phrases to help you break up gently.

  • We need to talk.
    • Musíme si promluvit.

    This is not really a break-up line, but it is a good conversation opener with a serious tone.

    It’s not you. It’s me.

    • To nejsi ty. To jsem já.

    As long as you mean it, this can be a kind thing to say. It means that there’s nothing wrong with your Czech lover as a person, but that you need something different from a relationship.

    I’m just not ready for this kind of relationship.

    • Jenom prostě nejsem připraven na takový vztah.

    Things moved a bit fast and got too intense, too soon? Painful as it is, honesty is often the best way to break up with somebody.

    Let’s just be friends.

    • Budme jenom kamarádi.

    If the relationship was very intense, and you have sent many ‘i love u’ texts in Czech, this would not be a good breakup line. Feelings need to calm down before you can be friends, if ever. If the relationship has not really developed yet, a friendship would be possible.

    I think we need a break.

    • Myslím si, že potřebujeme pauzu.

    This is again honest, and to the point. No need to play with someone’s emotions by not letting them know how you feel. However, this could imply that you may fall in love with him/her again after a period of time, so use with discretion.

    You deserve better.

    • Zasloužíš si něco lepšího.

    Yes, he/she probably deserves a better relationship if your own feelings have cooled down.

    We should start seeing other people.

    • Měli bychom se začít vídat s ostatními lidmi.

    This is probably the least gentle break-up phrase, so reserve it for a lover that doesn’t get the message!

    I need my space.

    • Potřebuju prostor.

    When a person is too clingy or demanding, this would be an suitable break-up phrase. It is another good go-to for that lover who doesn’t get the message!

    I think we’re moving too fast.

    • Myslím, že se pohybujeme příliš rychle.

    Say this if you want to keep the relationship, but need to slow down its progress a bit. It is also good if you feel things are getting too intense for your liking. However, it is not really a break-up line, so be careful not to mislead.

    I need to focus on my career.

    • Musím se soustředit na svou kariéru.

    If you feel that you will not be able to give 100% in a relationship due to career demands, this is the phrase to use. It’s also good if you are unwilling to give up your career for a relationship.

    I’m not good enough for you.

    • Nejsem pro tebe dost dobrý.

    Say this only if you really believe it, or you’ll end up sounding false. Break-ups are usually hard for the receiving party, so don’t insult him/her with an insincere comment.

    I just don’t love you anymore.

    • Už tě prostě nemiluju.

    This harsh line is sometimes the best one to use if you are struggling to get through to a stubborn, clingy lover who won’t accept your break up. Use it as a last resort. Then switch your phone off and block their emails!

    We’re just not right for each other.

    • Nehodíme se k sobě.

    If this is how you truly feel, you need to say it. Be kind, gentle and polite.

    It’s for the best.

    • Je to pro nejlepší.

    This phrase is called for if circumstances are difficult and the relationship is not progressing well. Love should enhance one’s life, not burden it!

    We’ve grown apart.

    • Vyrostli jsme odděleně od sebe.

    Cross-cultural relationships are often long-distance ones, and it is easy to grow apart over time.
