We've all (hopefully) heard and said the three magic words sometime in our
lives: I LOVE YOU.

What is it in your native languages please?

I'd love to know :-)

Thorgal already had the Flemish one I had in mind as well
but maybe I can add the new line in Antwerp dialect that is very fashionable now
and means about the same although it could also be used as the I like you too
much `-)

" 'K zen zot van A! "

No purplesage, I'm not saying that, Jon is! I think Finnish women are very very
romantic and it's the guys that have the problem.

yeah, with  Polish 'ja cie kocham' you'll definetely sound like a foreigner...
I think the pronunciation of 'kocham Cie' should be something like /koham chye/;
that's the closest you can get with English transcription, I guess.

Isn't it with finnish men like this in fact: I love you (by finnish man) = "Joo,
joo, enks mä jo kerran ole sen sanonu?"

Spanish: "Te amo" but is more common to say "Te quiero"
Catalan: "T'estimo"
Japaneese: "Anata ga suki desu" or "Suki yo" if a woman say it or "Suki da" ia
man say it. This is the common way but there are others.

Enjoy loving!

Um, the mythical generalised finnish male? He wouldn't even dignify his woman
with an irritablelook while passing the kitchen on his way to some vodka with
hunting party.
