Chan rak khun

Postby Ninjaprod » Fri Jan 11, 2013 10:39 pm

So I was texting this thai girl. and she texted me

"Chan Rak Khun"

I didn't know what it meant. So i googled it and found
Phom-rak-khun (I love you / male speaker)
Chan-rak-khun (I love you / female speaker)

Does this mean
I love you.
I love you as a friend, kind of way?

di-chan would be female, just chan can also be male (more poetic, used in every other song)

It means I love you, however Thais generally tend to say things like this faster than Westerners would. Anyway... it still means "I love you" (and I may be mistaken, but I'd say it always means like a lover, not like a friend)

"Chan Rak Khun"
means "I love you" as a lover, not as a friend only.

By the time that the relationship develops into the romantic stage,
the pronouns tend to be replaced by the nicknames of the two
principles involved. The resulting sentence is as if you were
speaking in the third person:

[He] loves [he]r / [She] loves [him], with the nicknames in place
of the pronouns.
