I made a question topic thingy you know ^^

Anyways....

In Japanese, "love" is "ai 愛 is ai + suru so aisuru 愛する
So "I love you" can be literally translated as "aishite imasu 愛しています or "Aishiteru 愛してる or "aishiteru yo 愛してるよ or aishiteru wa 愛してるわ this one is for female speech.
Now all of the above are used in conversation but it's not what japanese people would say, bcuz they just dont say "i love you" porbably another cultural thing.

Now I can tell a lot more about this but im kinda lazy so lets keep this short.
It is preferred to use the phrase "suki desu" 好きです (pronounce ski des)
It literally means, "to like. you can use "suki dayo" 好きだよ for male speech. Now this can be said in more ways and dialects but lets keep it with that.

Furhtermore: If you like somebody or something very much, "dai (literally means, big)" can be added as the prefix, and say "daisuki desu (大好きです)."

Problem is that you still didnt say its about you like very much...
so you would probably put her name and follow it by daisuki desu... alhtough aishiteru is stronger.

Lol found this kanji if only it was a real one it would definitily had to do somthing with love =P



1)
僕のガールフレンドになってくれる? Boku no gaarufurendo ni natte kureru?
You could use kanojo in stead of gaarufurendo... i think gaarufurendo doesnt sounds to romatic but im not to sure.

2) 僕のガールフレンドになってくれますか?Boku no gaarufurendo ni natte kuremasuka?
I like this ending better.

Now before confessing or somthing to anyone please have this confirmed by any of the mods here because my japanese sux im just a beginner lol ^_^ i just googled this and confirmed for as much as i can confirm it lol as for the kanji pic its just a joke and it doesnt mean anything in japanese

USE daisuki desu, cuz to a girl, ishiteru, kinda sounds sissy, unless ur i a romantic moment, ad she's ot gonna notice how girly it sounds
2) try Anata ga daisuki (you can replace anata with her name to make the proposal sound more personal!!

As the Japanese said.. Never USE Aishiteru when Confessing Your Love to a Girl... (If the speaker is a Boy)

(あいしてる) aishiteru is a strong word and as a girl (non-Jap) i bet it's sweet to be told "aishiteru" too but for Japs they usually say "I like you" by saying "suki dayo" or suki desu" (daisuki: equivalent to like so much)...
