These expressions are all about feelings and emotions that we might use when talking with people in Spanish, or any other language for that matter! Let’s take a closer look at the word ¡No te quiero! (I don’t want you!), which is kind of an obvious one…you’ll hear this if someone doesn’t want to be around you anymore because they’re mad or upset with something you did. Que lastima! (That sucks!) on the other hand is used more as commiseration; it means “too bad” but often implies there isn’t anything anyone can do to change things now, so what else can be done? ¡Eso me gusta! (I really like ___) on the other hand is a phrase you might hear if someone likes something and wants to speak more about it.
