I guess this means "I love you", right? I am a swedish male 28 years old, and I have met a 23 year old girls from Philippines. I like her a lot, but I am not sure how I can understand her. We have met like 4 times, and we have only been holding hands. Some flirting, but she seem retired when I tell her I like her. She says "Mahal Kita" to me every day on the phone, and that she is not going to tell me what it means. I know what it means after I searched this page. So the question is: can a philippine girl say I love you if she doesn't mean it? How can I get this girl? Do philippine girls need a lot of time before they make up their mind? I haven't even kissed her.
