Thanks and later.

Amstaffie:
Thank you!:)

Happy Valentine's Day to you also my dear. Hope you are having a great one! :)

later

Puremood:
Happy Valentine's Day to you also:)

Bye for now.

good post, but the Arabic is not accurate, it's :

Ana Bahebbik (to a female)
Ana Bahebbak (to a male)

that's in the Egyptian dialect, which is understood by almost all Arabic speakers.

note : i find that using double letters simplifies pronounciation probles for english speakers.

thank's for info now i know what i say to someone that i didnt know the language

انا احبك ياحبيبتي

انا احبك ياحبيبتي

Thanks for the entry.

사랑해요 :) i love u also..
