    Hi beautiful! In my dreams and in my life, you were the whole world. I want your kisses and love...I miss you more, my love....always!

    In my opinion, without changing his words, this is exactly what he said.

    te echo mas de menos Mi amor ......siempre!

    Without changing his words I think he said "I miss you more than less..." which would be said in English as "I miss you more than a little"

    Hi Vicente, not really.

    echar de menos is a fixed expression which means to miss , so te echo más de menos means, I miss you more (than before), or I miss you a lot.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Hi Exx. OK. thanks for the clarification but I was being a little facetious and just kidding around with melissa_r.

    I miss you more than a little and I miss you a lot have the same meaning and if you want to say I miss you more than before it is usually said as "I miss you more than ever".

    Hi Vicente! I totally get what you mean. I know that "i miss you a lot" has the same meaning but, "i miss you a lot" would actually be something like "te extraño mucho", right? Anyway, don't you think the phrase "te echo mas de menos" sounded kind of weird?

    Hi Melissa!!

    Actually, I do think the phrase sounds a little odd...but many idiomatic expressions sound odd (in any language), right?...and I'm not a native Spanish speaker; so if native speakers say it´s OK as it is written then I can´t argue; however, I don't think the guy who wrote the note was native either and I suspect a native speaker would have wrtten it differently.

    I know. As a native Spanish speaker, I think that if another native speaker would have written it, it would look different.
