Hello Haley M Cruz:) I agree Italian is romantic and it is fun to learn phrases in another language even if you don't speak it fluently. Right now I am doing that with French:)

HaleyMCruz from California on August 22, 2012:

How romantic! It seems even more romantic when spoken in a language that I don't understand! Though I love Italian, and will learn it someday, I can always find more reasons to learn it now, like being able to say these and sound awesome :)
