As far as I know, some words like love, know, like, understand cannot be put in -ing forms. But, why do sometimes I hear people say 'I'm loving you' instead of 'I love you'?

Thanks

I'm loving you. would literally mean that at the moment of speaking (right now) I'm in the process of loving you, which is odd and I can't really see it being used for any reasons other than poetic effect... Well, unless the speaker is trying to sound "cool" by deviating from the standard rules of English grammar. In some cases, however, I'm loving something has a meaning very close to I'm enjoying something, for example: I'm loving this show so far. It is a tricky question but I'm loving you. is not what you would normally say to your loved one and for some reason the progressive form sounds much better when used with things rather than people. Of course love for a person can change over time but it certainly doesn't change so dynamically and there's really no call for the continuous tense.

Neither of them make sense. You should explain what they mean.

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

The common expression is 'Did you date him?

It could also mean that the person has started to like the person (maybe because of his deeds etc).

Eg. I'm loving it.

As used by McDonald's.

I'm loving you means I'm loving you for the time being.Niether i loved you earlier nor their is any assurance that I'll love you later😁.Flirts and philanderers use this word to trick others.

That seems to be the origin of it.
