ASK A QUESTION How do you say 'I want you' in Spanish?
"I want you" literally comes out to "te quiero" which is "I love you" so how would you say simply, "I want you"?
As a complete expression: "I want you" = "Te deseo"
There are other "I want you's".
I want you to know
I want you to do it
Maybe there should be an automatic thing that refers these questions to a list of phrases of love/passion. It seems like they make up half the questions.
"I want you"
Impossible to answer fully without further context. The sentence, as it stands, means the same thing in English as "I desire you." (or "I lust after you" for soap opera addicts). However, if that is the beginning of a sentence (as opposed to the entire sentence), then there are many other possibilities.
If you want a clear answer you need to ask a clear question.
No it isn't. Te amo means I love you, and te quiero means I want you.
Cómo te quiero! = "How I love you" and / or "How I want you" - here in Bolivia at least.
In Spain, te quiero means I love you as te amo is generally seen as kind of too much.
Te busco might work as the verb buscar is often used in this sense: Se buscan dependientes = Shop assistants wanted.
