How to say "I love you" in French

If you want to confess your love to someone, just say...

Download
Je t‘aime.
I love you.

Hopefully the answer will be…

Download
Je t’aime aussi.
I love you, too.

What do you do when you meet someone and you realize that you are falling in love? Here are some phrases you might want to use…

Download
Tu me plais.
I’m fond of you.
Download
Je t’aime beaucoup.
I like you lots.
Download
Je t’aime énormément
I like you very much.
Download
Je t’adore.
I love you lots.
Download
Je t‘aime plus que tout.
I love you more than anything.

There is no equivalent in English for “Je t’adore”, it’s kind of between “I like you” and “I love you”. It basically means that you like someone very, very much. For example a mother might use “Je t’adore” to tell her child how fond she is of him or her.
