The general rule with Brits is the more they insult you, the more they like you :wink:

I always wonder with 我喜欢你 (I like you) in Chinese, if it sounds the same as it does in English - because in English ‘I like you’ is almost exclusively used for romantic situations. For Mandarin though I’m not sure how intense it sounds to say ‘我喜欢你’ to someone :eyes:
