To say I love you in Nepali language you can say “Ma timilai maya garchu”. You can pronounce it as Ma ti-mi-lai ma-ya gar-chu. म तिमीलाई माया गर्छु। Ma timīlā’ī māyā garchu.

We say timi to friends or younger people, tapai to elder people or in formal conversation and hajur is also said to elder people or in formal conversation but reflects more respect than tapai.

Essential Tips for Saying, “I Love You,” in Nepali


  1. Express your love with a smile: In Nepali culture smiling means you like that person and you’re not angry with that person.
  2. Right place: Nepalese girls are a little bit shy in nature so expressing your love in a busy or public place, in-front of friends might not be always right. Some girls may want to keep their relationship secret and may also want to hide from their parents.


  1. Don’t try to kiss, or hug her even after she accepts it. Nepali culture and lifestyle are different so you need to give her some time.
  2. Don’t kiss or hug in public places, in-front of friends.

#Note: All Nepalese don’t have the same educational level, lifestyle, culture, thoughts, etc so you need to think about his/her choices also before entering into any decision based on reading only.

Expressing Love to Family

In Nepali love means प्रेम (prem) and माया (maya). Maya word is also used to express love to family members, and friends. Normally, in Nepali language “ma timi-lai maya garchu” (I love you) is said between lovers.

To express your love to elder people in the family like father, mother, brother, etc then use the saying I love you with respect: Ma tapailai maya garchu. (म तपाईंलाई माया गर्छु) You: tapai/timi/ta all means you. Tapai is in respected form. Timi, we use for friends and younger people and ta is also the same as “timi” but “timi” sounds better than “ta”. The word “ta” sounds a little bit rough and might be unpleasant to some people.

If you wish you say I love you father then you can say Ma tapailai maya garchu buwa, ma ta-pai-lai ma-ya gar-chu bu-wa. You can also say Hajur (ha-jur) instead of tapai, hajur is more respected form than tapai. I love you mother in Nepali – Ma tapailai maya garchu ama, here ama means mother. Similarly, you can also say it to a brother, or sister. To the elder brother, you can say daju or dai, to the younger brother you can say bhai, to the elder sister dd and to the younger sister you can say bahini.

About love, people and society in Nepal

In those days: In those days nearly 60 years ago love marriage was not there. People might have fallen in love as it is human nature but love is not as open today. People were shy to talk about love, there were only arrange marriages in Nepal. But when we open history books we might find some evidence of the love affairs of rulers and other high-profile people at that time. People do fall into love but it was not as open and acceptable by society as it is today.

At that time inter-cast marriage was impossible. There was a caste system upper cast, lower cast, and untouchables. The caste system still exists today but it is not as in those days. There is a village in Nepal where all inter-cast married people live. In those days when inter-caste people fell in love, they were boycotted from society and were forced to leave their place, as a result, that village was formed.

Current situation: These days it’s normal to fall in love and it is also accepted by parents and society but it might be still the same in some villages of Nepal. There is a vast difference between city life and village life in Nepal. In the city inter-cast marriage is also allowed. A new generation has new thoughts and ways of living.

There are many castes in Nepal like Brahmin, Chhetri, Newar, Gurung, Rai, Limbu, Tharu, and many more. Among Newar, there are castes like Shrestha, Pradhan, Maharjan, Prajapati, Silwal, Singh, Manandhar, Bajracharya, etc. Nepal has mountain, hill, and terai regions. There are different communities, cultures, languages, and lifestyles.
