is it true that a sentence like 'I've got you under my skin' means both :
1 you're so annoying that I can't stand you anymore ... like something itching under my skin
2 I love you so much that you've become part of me ... just like you were under my own skin
I mean it's a little bit confusing and saying such a sentence to a person you care for may be 'sort of dangerous' ... SAYING THAT A PERSON'S GETTING UNDER YOUR SKIN ... what will she think ... that she's annoying you or that she's becoming very important to you ...
thanks a lot !!!
I've just remembered, there is also a song by Cole Porter from the 1930s called "I've got you under my skin."

I have often heard people say "he/she/it gets under my skin." to mean that he/she/it is annoying/irritating me. Except in the song already mentioned, I can't remember anyone ever saying "I've got him/her/you under my skin." within my hearing.
