    I've liked a girl I used to study with.

    Is this sentence correct?. "I've liked a girl I used to study with." or I've liked a girl who i have studied with

    Re: I've liked a girl I used to study with.

    Love is an important subject, but it's difficult to advise you without knowing the details. I suggest "I've fallen for a girl I went to school with." If you say "I've liked" it seems you stopped liking her, and it was clinical.

    Only very rarely would such a sentence be correct.

    Here are some common sentences:
    "I used to like the girl I studied with."
    "I liked the girl I used to study with."
    "There was a girl who I studied with who I really liked."
    "I really liked one of the girls I used to study with."

    None of these mean that you don't like her any more. It would generally be taken to mean that you have not seen her for a while, and so whether you still like her is not the point.
