    You get me interested in you!

    Is this sentence correct gramatically?

    You've got me interested in you.

    Context.

    I have read some information about a person and I've become curious / eager to find out further information about that person.

    So, is it correct to say: You've got me interested in you. ??? Or should I say: You've become a great interest for me. ??

    If that person did something to elicit that interest, the sentence is reasonable.

    Context.

    I have read some information about a person and I've become curious / eager to find out further information about that person.
    If you merely read something about a person, and have not received any information from that person, it would be better to say - I am interested in you.

    So, is it correct to say: You've got me interested in you. ??? Or should I say: You've become a great interest for me. ??

    What I have read has made me interested in [finding out more about] you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: You get me interested in you!

    You got me excited about the party you are planning.
    You got me upset because you were being selfish.
    You got me interested in knowing more about her.

    These sentences illustrate a commonly used grammatical pattern using 'get'.

    You've become a great interest for me.

    I am afraid that this sentence does not make sense in terms of meaning or grammar.
