Am I using "Te" correctly?

Did I use these three "you's correctly". I've been self teaching myself the uses of te (My Spanish I class is moving like a slug) and I wanted to know if I'm using them right?

Te necesitamos
Te odio
Te amo(I guess everyone knows this)
Tú eres tan rico y te quiero comer

Excellent!

Welcome to the forums, you are doing the correct with taking the initiative of doing by yourself. After all, you already are proficient, at your level, in English.

Bravo!

You said "is moving like a slug". The dictionary says that 'slug' means 'babosa' (slow) and 'bullet' (fast). So I'm not sure if it means slow or fast.

Thanks.

He means the slower one, babosa. Anything involving a slug suggests laziness or lack of movement.

I've been a slug today and done absolutely nothing.

Yes they are correct.

I don't find flaws in the your attempts.

Well done hummie.

A slug is an animal similar to a snail. And they move slow so I'm comparing the learning pace of my class to a slug's pace.
haha
