Without doubt the most useful phrase I have learned in romanian. The expression on my girlfriends (now wife) face the first time I used it said it all.
Why not "te iubesc pe tine"?
Why not "Eu te iubesc pe tine"? It uses less words and it's easier to say. "Eu" and "pe tine" are not mandatory in Romanian. It only puts more emphasis on a certain part of the sentence. It's similar to Spanish grammar.
