I love you

I got to thinking of the general category of exegetical fallacies, and remembered the common one that agape refers specifically to Christian love, to the love of God for humanity. But actually agape just means "love" as in s'agapo - I love you.

So here are a few tidbits of modern Greek to add to your repertoire. I am just going to cut and paste them from other sites, so I hope they are accurate.

M' areseis = I like you

S' agapo = I love you

Kego s'agapo = I love you too.

M' agapas? = Do you love me?

Agapi mou = My love, Darling

Filise me = kiss me

Fili = kiss

Filos / F ili = friend (male) / (female).


Se latrevo = I adore you.

Se thelo = I want you.
