well, it'll be kinda awkward saying "aishiteiru" or worse "aishiteimasu" to someone you love.
Anyway, there are many forms of "-te iru"
The most common is the "~ing" form.
And then there are the:
1. ~te iru for habitual actions which something that is happening and still
eg. shiteiru = know
sundeiru = live
wakatteru = understand (implying "I know what you talking about now")
So the same thing applies for "aishiteru" = love
e.g. "Maiasa itsumo nattou wo tabeteimasu"="I eat natto every morning"
"kekkon wo shiteimasen"="I'm not married" and not "kekkon wo shimasen" which implies "I won't marry"
2. ~te iru for (~has/have)
e.g. Ano eiga wo miteimashita ka?
Have you watched that movie?
Or Did you watched that movie?
depending on the context of the conversation.
Hope this helps a little. Correct me if I'm wrong.
