Bonjour Fiona !


J'adore is equivalent to J'aime beaucoup = I love / I like very much


The nuance is that you wouldn't use it to express love for someone, as in in love with.



J'adore Pierre !  = I love Pierre, in the sense of "I love that guy!" (not in love)


J'aime Pierre. = I'm in love with Pierre.



You can say Je n'aime pas beaucoup [ça] I don't like [that] very much


I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !

Yes, but with the proper timbre, "Je t'adore" can make a heart melt.
