Bonjour Aurélie, So "j'adore' is lesser than much love or like, right? because I am stressed. And can I say "je ne l'aime pas beaucoup?
This question relates to:French lesson "Aimer = to love, like something / someone"

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.

Salut Aurelie. That's a big difference between the two languages. In English, adore is a deeper emotion than love when speaking of someone. -to love and respect, -to love deeply, -to worship, etc.
