So, prepare yourself to read the sweetest guide that will most likely be a bit cheesy in some parts, and enjoy practicing your pronunciation until you remember all this essential vocabulary. Let's begin!
Most people will feel shivers down their spines and strong sensations when hearing this term. Because to us, this is a strong phrase to define our feelings. It is not something that we say lightly to someone.
You must be completely and utterly in love to use this phrase. Otherwise, you should say 'Te quiero,' which also means 'I love you,' but the feelings evoked aren't as strong as the word 'amo.'
The word 'amor' comes from the Latin 'amōris.' It is related to the Latin verb 'amāre,' from which the verb 'Amar' derives.
These are the basic conjugations that you might use in different situations.

Besides the previous phrases, there are many endearing ways to express your strong feelings towards others. Whether they are friends, lovers, or family members, you have many Spanish romantic phrases and words to choose from and communicate those emotions which are often hard to put into words.

Apart from being in shock for being confessed to, not knowing what words to use would complicate everything. Thankfully, you will have all the following love phrases up your sleeve. You can use any of these options if you want to accept or reject a confession.
Note: You should read the atmosphere when replying. If the person is telling you ‘te quiero’ try to not respond with ‘yo también te amo.’ The person is saying 'te quiero' because they don't feel ready to say 'te amo,' which, as discussed before, denotes a stronger feeling. Therefore, it might be very awkward if you do say it.
