ChrisC1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

You're correct: aimer is romantic love when used with a person and "like" when used with an object.

Adorer is "like very much" when used with either a person or object. But when a guy, just after a passionate kiss, looks at you and says "Je t'adore", you can make an exception and take it as meaning romantic love.

but i was marked wrong for using only adorer to love a thing- the answer wanted aimer as well?
