How to say "the one I love does not....." 2022/6/11 15:07
I have only studied a bit of japanese, but I wanted to know how to say "the one I love does not love me".
When i use the keyboard translator on my phone, I get this:
私が愛する人は私を愛していない
And while it looks correct, I'm not sure if this is a weird way of saying it.
Thank you for any help.

Nothing is wrong with it, but if a Japanese person is to say/write it, it would be something more like (provided that person uses the expression 愛する “to love”):
私が愛する人は、私を愛してくれない
…using the “(te-form of verb) + kureru.” (“Kurenai” is the negative form of it.)

Or one might express it in a shorter phrase: 私の片思い (my one-sided love).
