Thiago, you had it right. "I'm hung up on you" = "I'm crazy about you. I can't think of anyone but you." "He is hung up on her." = "He has the hots for her."
In a slightly different sense, "to be hung up on something" is to have a major problem.
I was delayed because I got hung up in traffic.
My bags were hung up at the airport in customs.
I hope there are no hang-ups at the bank; I need the money today without fail.
"To hang up" has yet another meaning.
I hung up on you = I disconnected the telephone before you were finished talking to me on it.
