Foreign "I LOVE YOU"

    This is the question for people who speak foreign languages.

    When you say/hear "I love you" in your native language, it raises certain feelings in you.
    Now, if you say/hear the same words, only in a language that's not your mother tongue - does this change the feeling you get?

    Example. There was a thread here about why it's so hard to say those three words "I love you". I've heard many people say that language change makes it a lot easier, because these are just words - you don't feel them as you would if they were said in your mother tongue.

    So is it true or not? Does the language reduce the impact?

      For me there is no difference between mi amor, my love or szerelmem. I think it's because when you hear it you also hear the person's tone of voice as well as see her face.

    for me, hearing 'je t'aime' from my husband is amazing.  No matter what language, when the words are heartfelt and you know it, it is incredible.
