    Dear Teacher Nina,

     

     I’m the only one (loving/loved) you.

     

    Question:  In the above sentence, is 'loving' the right word to use? if so, would you please tell me why 'loved' cannot be used here?

     

    and can I say:  I'm the only one who loved you.

     

    Thank you always for your clear explanation.

    Dear Bee:

     

    If you say "I'm the only one who loved you," it means that "I loved you only in the past."

    You can't say "I'm the only one loved you," because the relative pronoun "who" functions as a subject. Therefore, it can't be omitted.​

    However, you can omit the relative pronoun "who" when it functions as an object.

    "I'm the only one loving you," means "I still love you."

     

    You're welcome. Keep on practicing, Bee.
