Continuar, seguir, andar, ir without the A, and llevar are followed by gerunds rather than infinitives.

Voy a continuar amándote/seguir amándote. The rest is right, I think.

Voy amándote cada día más.

Ando buscando a alguien a quien amar.

Llevo dos meses buscando a alguien a quien amar.

Why Dandi? Why gerunds? - jeezzle, JUL 4, 2010
I wish I knew. Let me know if you ever find out! - 003487d6, JUL 4, 2010
Now that I think about it, I guess it has something to do with all of these things being a progressive,ongoing action. Estoy buscando, Ando buscando=I'm searching right now but Voy a buscar = I am not searching now but I will be. - 003487d6, JUL 4, 2010

Marianne is right. Seguir sounds more natural, although, Te amo para siempre is more common. But, jeezzle, I have a question: If you're not going to eat, how long will you be able to go on loving the woman of your affections?

I don't need long Julian ;) - jeezzle, JUL 4, 2010

You could also use "seguir" to say that you're going to keep on doing something.

Let's wait for a native or advanced speaker to say what sounds natural. grin

Dandi wrote a very nice a complete answer. I prefer the option: "seguiré amándote (siempre)". - Gekkosan, JUL 4, 2010

Translating REO Speedwagon lyrics are we? I did that in my Spanish class in 1982. grin
