Sometimes, one language alone just doesn't have the right words to express your feelings. Denglisch and The Local are here to help tell that special someone just how you feel.

They say German isn't a romantic language, but when you write it Comic Sans and add some English words, the effect is truly magical. 

We're not asking anything more than to for someone to go eat a Frikadelle (a German meatball) together. 

No one wants to be a lonely Kaiser roll on February 14. 

All we ask is for a great big smooch!

Well, dogs say "wau" regardless of the holiday, but it's also what "wow" sounds like when a German says it. 

Frederick the Great (or Friedrich der Grosse as he's known here) just wants to share the love. 

Now tell the Germanophile in your life how you feel! 

Happy Valentine's Day!
