Hi, there! Today we will learn how to reply to “Te Amo” in Spanish. As you learn Spanish, you realize there are so many ways to express your love. “Te Amo” is one of those ways. We want to show you how to express your love in Spanish. Let’s see how to reply to this profound show of affection.
Of course, if you receive this show of affection, you have to answer with all your heart. Do you really love this person? If so, dive into the pool with a big “¡Yo también!” and tattoo his/her/their name on your finger.
But we know these feelings are not always reciprocal. So, what’s the best answer if you don’t feel like “Te Amo” at that point? This is not a romantic office, but we have a tip: always tell the truth. And if the truth is “no”, try to be nice and say something else besides “no”. Because, after all, we’ve all been there some time, haven’t we?
Don’t cry for your Spanish
Luckily, as you know, in Spanish we have two big ways to express love. So, take a hand to this when you don’t feel like “Te Amo”. You can totally answer “Te Quiero Mucho” (ok, you have to at least have some love for this person, but maybe not so much love as he/she/they).
It would be strange to answer with a simple “Gracias”. Strange / you’ll break his / her / their heart into a million pieces. Don’t do that! Except, of course, that the one who is telling you “Te Amo” is a complete stranger. In that case, you can answer “Gracias” and step back quickly.

“Es muy tierno/ dulce de tu parte decir eso”
As another option, you can say something like “Es muy tierno / dulce de tu parte decir eso. Tengo que procesar esta información” (It’s very sweet of you to say that, I have to process all that information).
“Me siento halagado/a/e, pero no siento lo mismo por ti”
You can go straight to the point by saying this: “Me siento halagado/a/e, pero no siento lo mismo por ti” (I feel flattered but I don’t feel the same for you).
“Yo te amo con toda mi alma”
Oh, this is a lot! This means “I love you with all my soul” and you can say it to that special person. Remember: don’t be shy, but means A LOT.
“Yo también, pero no en la misma manera”
Heart break alert: I love you too, but not in the same way as you. Time to tell the truth, don’t be scared, it’s always better than to lie.
