Hello, assalamualaikum. Welcome to Urdu top words and today, our lesson is, Top 10 Phrases You’ll Need for a Date.
Okay guys, so before we jump right into the lesson, I would want to talk about a bit about our culture and how is dating in Pakistan. So as you all might already be familiar with that, Pakistan is an Islamic country. So I would say that more than 50% of the marriages are arranged marriages. So yeah, you don’t get to date a lot when you are in high school or in the university. That being said, people do date. I mean, it’s something natural and they might not announce it publically that they are dating but yes, couples do date. They get to know each other and if they feel confident enough and with the blessings of their family, they do get to get married too.
But yes, you have to be just a bit more careful when you are in your workspace or when you are in your university and you need to be sure when you are asking someone for a date how to approach that subject rather than just going straightaway, yeah, I would like to go on a date with you, you know. This might come as strong or a bit more offensive. You need to have a certain kind of tact to handle these kind of situations. Let’s get started.
کیا آپ میرے ساتھ ڈیٹ پر چلیں گے / گی؟
(Kia aap meray sath date per chalein gay / gi?)
“Will you go on a date with me?”
So a very quick note. If it’s a man, chaleinge. If you are asking a woman, chaleingi.
I would really not suggest you to just ask like “would you go on a date with me?” Rather I would say maybe,
Kya aap mere saath coffee peene chaleingi?
Kya aap mere saath coffee peene chaleinge?
So I think it’s more tactful to approach the subject and receive you know, the signal from the other person that are they really interested in talking to you with a cup of coffee or tea or whatever.
آپ اس ہفتے کے آخر میں فارغ ہیں؟
(Aap iss haftay ky akhir mei farigh hain?)
“Are you free this weekend?”
Yes, I think this is quite harmless sentence and a very tactful way of approaching the subject as per to say dating.
کیا آپ میرے ساتھ رات کےکهانے پر چلیں گے/ گی؟
(Kia aap meray sath raat ky khanay per chalein gay / gi?)
“will you go for dinner with me?”
Again guys, if you want to know more about masculine and feminine nouns and verbs, please do check our videos which we did only for grammar and sentence structures. Visit our website and there are a lot of videos about grammar structure especially for verbs and nouns.
آپ بہت حسین ہیں.
(Aap bohat haseen hain.)
“You are so cute.”
So we use the word haseen actually for beautiful and there is one more word for beautiful that is khoobsurat. So you can either use haseen or khoobsurat and I translated it as “you are cute.”
So if you want to say someone cute, I think you should say, aap cute hai rather than haseen.
ہم کہیں اور چلیں؟
(Hum kahin aur chalein?)
“Shall we go somewhere else?”
Yeah, maybe it’s too crowded or noisy. So if you want to change the restaurant, so it’s a good sentence to know.
میں آپ کو فون کروں گا / گی.
(Mein aap ko phone karun ga/gi.)
“I'll call you.”
This is a sentence that you can use anytime actually, may it be your workplace, may it be dating or may you be just talking with your friends. “I will call you.”
میں آپ کو گھر چهوڑ دوں گا / گی.
(Mein aap ko ghar chor dun ga/gi.)
“I will drive you home.”
As I said, we are pretty secular society. So we don’t tend to see this kind of attitude. The people go on a date and they are being dropped by their date at home. It’s a good sentence to know if you need it but we don’t generally use it.
ہم کل کس وقت ملیں؟
(Hum kal kis waqt milein?)
“What time shall we meet tomorrow?”
Pretty obvious. If you are going on a date, you need to be on time. The people don’t tend to be on time. That is the general attitude in Pakistan.
کیا میں آپ سے دوباره مل سکتا / سکتی ہوں؟
(Kia mein aap say dobara mil sakta/sakti hun?)
“Can I see you again?”
I don’t know. I am busy, yeah.
آپ کا اس جگہ کے بارے میں کیا خیال ہے؟
(Aap ka iss jagah ky baray mei kia khayal hai?)
“What do you think of this place?”
Yeah, pretty harmless to ask. “What do you think of this place?” I like it. It’s sassy.
So guys, here is the end of another lesson. I’d be waiting for your comments and do tell me your experiences of your dates in Pakistan and I will try to reply as much as I can and see you until next time. Allah Hafiz!
