SpanishTe quieroI love you but not quite.

*Te quiero* (I love you, lit. I want you) is more than *me gustas* (I like you) but less than *te amo* (I love you). You say *te quiero* to anyone whom you more than like, but are not in love with. It's like saying "I really care about you, but I don't love you, but I do like you"
