"Querer" means "to want" (as in the infamous Taco Bell commercials" "Yo quiero Taco Bell"), but when you say it to another person ("te quiero"), it means "I like/love you."

In English "I want you" has a less charming, more sexual connotation/sound, but in Spanish it doesn't. This is what moms say to their kids, couples say to each other, etc. (If you love someone, you want to be with that person, you *want that person aroud, don't you')
