French people cannot say to each other ‘I love you’. The word ‘love’ does not exist as a verb in French!  ‘You are crazy’ I can hear you thinking, France and love go hand in pocket! However, it is true! ‘Je t’aime’ only means ‘I like you’. J’aime chocolat, les vins rosés, le jardinage, camembert etc’. I like all of those things. If a French person wants to say that they love you, the only way is to say, ‘Je t’aime très fort!’
