    Hey all, I could really use some help.

    I am looking for the proper way a parent might say to their child I Love You in these languages.

    Spanish, French, Italian. I am definitely interested in other languages, Gaelic, Arabic, Russian etc. But many languages involved alphabet characters I am not familiar with.

    I do know that there are online translators, Babelfish etc.But I have found out the hard way, those are really not reliable, and I need to know as specifically as possible.

    I am finding that unlike the English language, there might be one way to say I love you in a romantic manner and a way to say I love you in friendly, non romantic manner.

    An example would be:

    Spanish: Te Amo or Te Quiero.

    So, does anyone speak any foreign languages that might be useful.

    In Italian it's ti amo; I'm not fluent, but I love to sing in Italian!

    would you happen to know if that is romantic or familiar? Like something you say to someone you would like to, ah, you know, Know or somthing you say to your Mama Mia?


    edited to jsut say, I think you intended to clarify this (sorry if I goofed)

  • exwitless

    Ti amo (relationship/lover/spouse)
    Ti voglio bene (between friends)
    Ti voglio (strong sexual meaning, "I want you" referred to the other person's body)

    Hope this helps! I'm not an Italian expert, but I believe this is correct.

    Ok, I think I get that then.

    Bene in Ti voglio Bene would probably then refer to friend.

    I think I'm starting to see.

    (the little Italian I know comes from Josh Groban and Andrea Boccelli )

    Thank you for clarifying that, I really appreciate it.

    Probably not what you are looking for, but in French: Tout le monde de besouin de amor - everybody in the world needs love Couchez vous - make love to me

  • Narkissos

    In French:

    Je t'aime or je vous aime (depending, not on the type of love, but the social relationship).

    Je t'aime bien or je vous aime bien is "I like you".

    In Iranian:

    dus et daram.

    And I slightly disagree with exwitless, ti voglio bene is most common in love relationships...

  • Narkissos
    Couchez vous - make love to me

    LOL, it's more the doctor's "please lie down".
