When you’re in a relationship, a line like “Ayoko na.” is a line that you wouldn’t wanna hear. So, today, let’s learn some Tagalog break-up lines.
When you are in love, love quotes or “banat” in Tagalog really make us “kilig” (the feeling of excitement or thrill when you encounter a romantic experience). But, it hits differently when experiencing a breakup.
Breakups are one of the worst feelings in the world for most people. It can affect people differently, and it takes time to heal and forget. But, just like, what is said in a Filipino movie called “One More Chance,”
“Baka kaya tayo iniiwan ng mga taong mahal natin, kasi baka merong bagong darating na mas OK, na mas mamahalin tayo, yung taong hindi tayo sasaktan at paaasahin, yung nag-iisang taong magtatama ng mali sa buhay naten, nang lahat ng mali sa buhay mo.”
“Maybe the people we love leave us because maybe someone better will come, who will love us more, the person who will not hurt us and make us hope, the only person who will correct the wrong in our life when everything in your life is.”
So, let’s learn some Tagalog break-up lines that you might need or hear. The English translation will also be provided to make it easier for you to understand.
Tagalog Break-Up Lines
Last few years, several breakups by Filipino power couples broke the hearts of their fans. Some of these couples are JaDine (James Reid and Nadine Lustre), Moira Dela Torre and Jason Marvin, Alyssa Valdez and Kiefer Ravena, Jake Cuenca and Kylie Verzosa, and JK Labajo and Maureen Wroblewitz.
This just proves that no matter how everything seems so perfect, you’ll never really know. The worst part is the fairytale-like love life might end up in a breakup.
Many things will change when you choose to walk away from a relationship. There might be a different reason why you break up with someone, but that doesn’t always mean that you don’t love or care about them anymore.
Filipinos have different ways of coping with a breakup. Some want to deal with it alone, and some want to talk to their friends. Either way, they all have one goal, and that is to cover up the pain from the breakup.
In this part of the blog, we will learn about different break-up lines. Although break-up lines differ for every situation, here are the most common that you’ll often hear in people or in movies/TV shows.
1. Kailangan nating mag-usap. (We need to talk.)
If you hear this line from your partner, you probably know how this would end. The line “Kailangan nating mag-usap” means “We need to talk” in English. It is usually uttered with a serious tone and face. This is probably one of the most common ways to start a breakup conversation.
2. Tapusin na natin ito. (Let’s end this.)
If you want to say that you want to end the relationship directly, you can say, “Tapusin na natin ito.” Just make sure that you have an explanation of why you want to end the relationship.
3. Ayaw na kitang makita. (I don’t wanna see you anymore.)
When you love someone, there’s the excitement and desire to see them every day. But, when you end things with that person, everything changes, especially when you did not end on good terms. Saying, “Ayaw na kitang makita” is one of the Tagalog break-up lines that is commonly used by Filipinos.
You might also hear the phrase “Magtago kang mabuti ha, ayaw na kitang makita, (Hide very well, I don’t want to see you anymore)” is only used when you are really angry with someone and your relationship did not end really well. This is often used when your partner (ex) has done really horrible things that extremely hurt you.
4. Maging magkaibigan na lang tayo. (Let’s just be friends.)
When you like someone, one of the worst feelings is being in the friend zone. So, when you hear the line “Maging magkaibigan na lang tayo,” you’re there in that zone. But, you know what? At least friends never break up.
5. Kailangan ko ng space. (I need space.)
Another common break-up line is “Kailangan ko ng space.”. This is a common break-up line not just for Filipinos. Asking for space doesn’t always mean breaking up but most of the time, it ends there. Asking for space is asking for a moment to think and weigh all the things. It is also a way to take a break from all the suffocating things in a relationship. Sometimes, when everything in a relationship feels so overwhelming, space can help.
6. Kailangan ko munang unahin ang sarili ko. (I need to prioritize myself first.)
Have you ever felt lost when you were in a relationship? There are people who tend to forget to take care of themselves when they are in a relationship.
But, there will always be a time when you realize that you’re neglecting yourself too much. This leads us to one of the most popular Tagalo break-up lines which is, “Kailangan ko munang unahin ang sarili ko.” Remember, never apologize for prioritizing yourself first. Just like what they say, “Before loving someone, love yourself first.”
7. Kailangan ko munang magpokus sa aking karera/career. (I need to focus on my career first.)
In a survey, Filipino youth nowadays prefer to prioritize their career first before being in a relationship or settling down. So, this has always been one of the most popular Tagalog break-up lines that you’ll often hear.
8. Hindi tayo para sa isa’t isa. (We are not meant to be together.)
There’s a famous Filipino line saying, “Pinagtagpo pero hindi tinadhana” which means, there are people whom we will meet but we’re not meant to be together. This is one of the famous break-up lines in Tagalog to say to someone after realizing that your differences won’t make your relationship work.
9. Hindi na kita mahal. (I don’t love you anymore.)
Of course, one of the most common reasons why people break up is when the love between each other have lost. So, to say that in Tagalog, you can use, “Hindi na kita mahal.”
