Hello everybody.

Can we use "se thelo" for other things or just to express desire and want?

"Se thelo" (σε θέλω) means "I want you"

"thelo" (θέλω) means "I want".

You hear "σε θέλω" a lot between couples that are in love.  There are no uses other than the ones you mentioned.

so we can not use it to mean i need you for something professional? or between friends?
"Σε θέλω" is not very professional to say.  So we could say "σε θέλω να είσαι ο γιατρός μου" (I want you to be my doctor), but it is not very appropriate.  We would rather say "θέλω να είσαι ο γιατρός μου".  

"Σε θέλω" shows a very strong desire.  "I want you" is much stronger than "I want".
Thank you so-much professor
