Japanese translation:Ai shite iru
Explanation:
You wouldn't see Ai shite imasu - that's far too formal for somebody you love. Ai shite iru is the colloquial form that should be used, or maybe not.

Japanese almost never express themselves so directly.

Suki da yo (I like you - male speech), Ore wa ... no koto ga suki da yo (same - male) or Watashi wa ... no koto ga suki (same, ... = fill in name - female speech) is much more natural.
