Here "do" is an intensifier, you are insisting that you love someone.

**Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

Of course I agree with bhaisahab.
Here is a practical example:
Your girlfriend (or boyfriend):
You often meet other girls (or boys).
I have the feeling you don't love me anymore.

Your answer:
I do love you.

I hope that was understandable.

And please try to use capital letters as well:
1-I love you.
2- I do love you.

What is the difference between the first and the second sentence? What is the function of "do"?

Please, teachers, help me because of my homework!
Cheers!
