So "love? is gendered in Hebrew? This is "ahavav", while a little while ago I saw the same word but "ahava". Can someone help me w/ this?

nouns have genders, male or female. verbs (and adjectives) get the gender of the one who is doing the verb.

ahava is a noun, and it is female. hu ohev (he loves), hee ohevet (she loves).

Why do you need the personal pronoun in English, You can see by the verb it's masculine

You can't see that it's masculine in English, which doesn't have gendered forms of verbs. Anyway, subjects are always mandatory in English. (Or did you mean to ask about Hebrew?)
