what is the different between te amo and te quiero
what is the different between Te amo and Te quiero and when would you use each one the then ?
Amar is used among lovers only.
Querer is for all types of love - friends, family, lovers, etc.
Te amo = I love you
Te quiero = I love/want you
I have been taught by several of the Spanish speakers I know that "Te quiero" was actually a stronger form of "Te amo." Have I been taught wrong?
te amo - i love you te quiero - i want you
As I've experienced it in the past, when someone is flirting with you they may say 'te quiero' (and 'tu me gusta' is another ); once they've decided they love you they will say 'te amo'.
