How do you say I love you in Spanish?

 

Having the ability to express love is one of the most important functions of a language. In this short post we will take a look at how do you say I love you in Spanish and some other phrases that may be useful to express your feelings for someone special.

 

To say I love you in Spanish, you can say:

Te quiero.

 

You may also say:

Te amo.

 

Learn how to pronounce these phrases here: 

httpv://youtu.be/yJRarr5UiMs

 

 

It is important to mention that, although there are two ways of saying I love you in Spanish (te quiero and te amo), they may be used in different contexts.

 

For example,

In Mexico and in most of Latin America saying “te quiero” means I love you,

 

“Te quiero” may be used with a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife; and it may also be used to express fraternal love for a brother, sister, cousin or a friend.

 

So, in English there is only one verb to say I love you (to love), but in Spanish we have 2 (querer and amar).

 

Although “te quiero” can be used to express love for a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife as well as friends and family,

 

“Te amo” may only be used to express romantic feelings. For example, for a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife. Generally, you wouldn’t use “Te amo” with a brother, a sister, or friends (however, there are exceptions and some people may use them that way as well, occasionally to express intense fraternal love).

 

“Te amo” is more of a romantic nature, and “te quiero” (although it means I love you) may be used in both romantic and fraternal contexts ( fraternal, as in a context of family or friends).

 

 

A few other phrases you can use to express your love for somebody are (in a romantic context):

 

I love you very much.

Te quiero mucho.

 

You are a very special person for me.

Eres una persona muy especial para mí.

 

You are the most important person in my life.

Eres la persona más importante en mi vida.

 

I don’t know what I would have done if I had never met you.

No sé que habría hecho si no te hubiera conocido.

 

I enjoy being with you.

Disfruto estar contigo.

 

I love spending time with you.

Me encanta pasar tiempo contigo.
