Analysis

愛して is the te-form of the verb “愛する” meaning “to love”.

くれて is the te-form of くれる which can be used by itself as a verb to mean “to give me”. When it follows a verb te-form, it means “to do something for me” and the “something” is usually beneficial or favourable for the speaker so it implies the speaker’s appreciation for the action done by another person. So 愛してくれる means “to love me”.

ありがとう means, as you know, “thank you” and a verb te-form followed by くれてありがとう means “thank you for doing something for me”. Since くれて implies the speaker’s appreciation, It’s always attached to the verb when you appreciate someone for doing something. Many learners tend to miss くれて but you will never say 愛してありがとう without くれて.

Ace’s Quote

Thank you for loving me!!!

Verb Te-Form + くれる (to do something for me)

The old man living in the neighbourhood always greets me when I see him.
My friend gave me a lift home.
My girlfriend is angry and she doesn’t look at me.

NOTE

When you use くれる the speaker is not always the receiver of an action. The receiver can be someone who is close to the speaker such as the speaker’s family.

The teacher bought chocolate for my daughter.

When the receiver is not someone who is close to the speaker and the speaker is just telling the fact that A gives something to B from the objective point of view, only あげる can be used.

Tanaka-san bought chocolate for Endō-san.

Verb Te-Form + くれてありがとう (thank you for doing something for me)

Thank you for coming today.
Thank you for inviting me to the party.
Thank you for always being with me.

NOTE

When it means “thank you for giving me something”, you just need one くれて.

Thank you for giving me a call.

When it means “thank you for giving me something”, you can also omit くれて.

Thank you for your email.

EXTRA TIP

くれる is used towards your equals or inferiors. It is better to use くださる (the honorific version of くれる) towards your superior.

Teacher, thank you for teaching me Japanese.
