In my country usually we said "saya sayang awak" - malay...recently this word was rarely used, because we more comfortable with english "i love u".

In portuguese you get to say: Eu amo-te. In german: Ich liebe dich. In finnish: Minä rakastan sinua.

In tamil we would say 'Nan unnai kathalikaren' (ka_thali_karen). This sentence is very specific to lovers or would be lovers; you can't say this to your parents, siblings, friends or children. The consequence of uttering this sentence could be manifold. If the answer is 'Nanum' (na-num means me too) something romantic has got started. If the answer is silence your dreams have been/are likely to be shattered. If the response is scowl, you better say it was a joke and try later. If you see signs of anger run for your life, for in the next few moments leather from feet could ascend to meet your face. I wonder if there is such a specific sentence as prelude to romatic love in other languages.

hey there nanands!! wow, that's something new to me. thanks for sharing. is this kinda like a tradition in your country?

Ha ha ha! Are you refering to the last sentence as tradition... Seriously, it is only in South India that such marriages are prevalent. As to the question of a specific sentence, I do not know of any other language which is so specific. Maybe someone here can tell us.

Hey i am from India, so in our country if we say in national language we say it like " mai tumse pyaar karata hu". And specially in my mother tongue we says like "majha tujhyawar prem aahe". As you are from philipines....so its hard to understand this thing for you, must be sounding too different rather!!
