    Default me gustas tu or tu me caes bien

    I was told by a Dominican that if I want to say" I like you" I should not say " tu me gustas" but instead say "tu me caes bien" - but I just saw a ong title by Grupo Maravila called " Me gustas tu" so I guess the phrase is correct? So If I want to say to aperson, platonically, "I like you'( as a friend), which do I use, and is the use of gustar wrong?thanks

    Tu me gustas is used when you like someone (and not in a friendly manner). Like saying I dig you ! tu me caes bien means I find you agreeable/likeable in a friendly manner.

    So you could say me caes bien or tu eres vacana. I've even used tu eres chevere (which also means vacana) and people understand that.

    If you have more developed feelings for that someone, it would be te quiero. And if it were more serious, te amo would be used. But if the relationship is in the beginning stages and you like her, tu me gustas is more proper. If the relationship is about mutual satisfaction without feelings, then "ay, tu me encantas" would be used.

    IMO it's better if someone expressed how they feel for you, without the need to ask them to express it.. But here it goes..

    Te gusto or agrado ? Do you like me ?
    Me amas ? Do you love me ?
    Me quieres ? Do you like me (in between love and liking, i guess the warm and fuzzy feeling would be this
