Hello :cool:

Let's say I'm speaking to my friend about girls. I'm still single and he's going to break up with his girlfriend.

I say to him ->

If I find a girlfriend someday, I will always love her like nothing in the world.
If I find a girlfriend one day, I will always love her like nothing in the world.
If I ever find a girlfriend, I will always love her like nothing in the world.

Which one do you prefer?

Thank you in advance for your help ;)

Thank you, Raymott :up:

Would you help me once more, please?

As for the rest of the sentence, is it correct?

"Love her like nothing in the world" doesn't work.

"... I will love her more than anything [else] in the world" would work better.

That sounds much better :up:

Last question -> Is "always" redundant in the sentence? I would like to emphasize the verb "love" by it.

If I find a girlfriend someday, I will always love her more than anything in the world.

It's not redundant. It tells the reader that you commit to loving your girlfriend for the rest of your life.
