I need ways to say "I like you" or "I love you" (to a girlfriend) from various periods in history.

I say "I like you" rather often to my girlfriend, and I get the feeling that it's loosing its meaning. My remedy for this is to express the same sentiment in the language of earlier times. I've started using decades (eg. "You're groovy," for the 1960s) and would like to continue that, but I'll accept anything so long as I am able to tie a time period to it with reasonable precision. (She'll ask which time period is represented by each statement.) I'll take them as far back in history as you can give 'em.
