I dont use the words 'I Love You' very often or lightly. Only 2 people have ever really been loved by me... My brother and my ex. I was wondering how much value you guys put in these words.

Only 2 girls would have ever recieved those words from methumb up

I guess it depends on how much you trust the person who is saying it....sometimes it can be used just becuase people are caught up in the first passion of love...I used it once, but I don't think I'll use it again for a long time, untill I'm completely sure..

yes I agree. I have come across people who throw around 'I love yous' like candy on Halloween. I think if people stopped and thought about what it means to LOVE someone they wouldn't say it as much.

The last guy who told me... 'i love you' broke my heart.. i dont velive in love anymore...It just uses you then spits you out when its done

Damn. Thats has to suck. I'm sorry to hear that. As Allyn pointed out to me shit happens. You cant let the past have power over your future. I think everyone should listen to "See The Sun" by Dido.

I have never used these words in my whole entire life because I have never been loved. Ok maybe my parents say it but its been a long time ago since they have said that. Since I havent found my true love yet that is why I feel like this. Maybe things will change in the near future.

Alot of people think I'm incapable of love, they find me to be cold and distant. I laugh at misery, go out of my way to cause discomfort, am sortof a creep, and hell, I don't even tell my mom I love her.. (I do tell her however my life would suck without her because she DOES support me..)

It's a defence, and a damn good one. People are manipulative, lieing bastards who only want to bring me up just so I can fall down hard. Screw them..

I may however say I love you to a ceartain someone, but that's only with my inside voice.. stick out tongue

People litteraly point at you and say "ugly".

The only two girls that like you are a desperate fool who's "inlove with love" (we all know those types) and someone who though a girl, reminds me so much so of the Revenge of the Nerds character I nicknamed her Ogre..

You're a highschool dropout who's 20 years old but looks 13 and acts immature, so much so even 13 year olds think you're thier age..

You workout but don't develop a "ripped" body, more of a "60 year old body builder" body where the muscles slag and you have atrocious body odor so you have to spray deoderize yourself to death..

You're 5"2 and your penis is described as mediocre at best..

And to top it all off you have a speech impedement where you naturaly mispronounce words mostly in vowel context like a three year old..

I should be getting payed to suffer like this as the offical "Toys R Us kid".

I say 'I love you' very often. Those who I say it to know I mean it. Besdies, you don't need to be in a relationship to love someone. I love my family and friends. Yes, its a different kind of love, but love nonetheless.

Bahh, we live in the what I call "whore age". Where people wantwantwant and don't know how to give. I sympathize for you. It's cause of fear of being victim to "the whores" I'm so pissy and angery against relationships and act snide and rat-like..

Also the un-logic that is sewn into the fabric of Valentine's Day. Seriously, if it's a holiday based off lovers, and is in honor of Saint Valentine. What's the point? Weren't saints celibate?!

But most likely it was another Pagan event turned Christian, like every other fricking holiday, which all became tools of the coporate marketplace anyway..

Aren't I just full of good cheer.. wink

Its an amazing feeling to hear my daughters tell me 'I love you'....and no words in any dictionary is good enough to describe the feelings I feel when Alex has told me...'I love you'. love

I dont use the words lightly...I make sure those I do love know I cherish them enough to take the time to say those 3 little words...

I like a girl but am VERY afraid to tell her because I couldn't bare to hear no.. Ofcourse she pretty much knows already. I'm told I'm really obvious when it comes to letting my gaurd down over emotions.. What's worse is when she asked Ashley and Ashley admitted to it she said "Oh, okay"..

I told my nephew last week that I loved him, and I told my friend yesterday that I loved her.

_Sanctuary_
My friend is always telling me how much she loves me.. It freaks me out!

I do not use these three words very often, and it is only spoken to those that I truly love.

My Wife, parents and children.


To say 'I love you' to anyone that you don't truly love, lessens it for those that you do.

I can't stand people that write letters, PMs, or emails and end it with a 'Love ya'

_Sanctuary_
Yeah, I rarely say it... My friend says it all the time to me, but not in a stupid way confused

People use the words "I love you" for many things, but when it comes to a more intimate setting, It's ususally danced around .....never really said, well in most instances at first.

Not that much.

Whenever someone says it to me I'm like "umm.. yeah.. ok........confused"

Very true, that I love you is thrown around in such a blatently common manner, however the value of the words still holds strong for some people. Much like saying "Hate." Hate and Love are on opposite sides of such a spectrum. You cannot have one without the other.

And, much like love, hate is thrown around in the aforementioned manner, with no such regard for the strength that such a word carries.

I have only truly hated one person in my life. lol

"Love" is a word that only works at the right time. And there has to be some history behind it. You can't just do someone one night and say you love them. My brother actually made a decision that you shouldn't use the word "love" until you've known someone for 2 years. It's a long way to wait, but if it lasts that long you must love each other.

There are different types of love. I say ''I love you'' to my housemate all the time - that is because I love her as a friend. I tell my mom I love her, because I love my mother like...well mother.

Etc..

I agree, my friend doesn't throw "I love you" around though big grin One of the greatest human beings in this world!
According to my fortune cooke from yesterday "It is a grand thing to be loved, but an even grander thing to love" confused

If you say I love you too much, it loses ALL meaning, like all words.

_Sanctuary_
Yeah, but if you rarely say it then other people will say it more to you to see if you love them.. Weird cycle huh...

After which it loses its meaning. sad

It depends on the moment and who says it. If a man, it's a joke. If a women you don't know it's a joke. If your partner says it, and you know she does, it's real.

Errr, that's bullshit. A guy can say it and mean it, just as a girl can say it and mean it as a joke.

i never use the words i love you..it only brings heartache

I can talk about it, like you know reffering to someone saying " I love you" but If i have to say it to someone and mean it, I CANNOT do it.

I dont know how people can say it so casually every so often.

Yeah, noticed that one.

Saying "I Love You" can freak anyone. There's an old saying, "Actions speak louder than words." If you really love someone, then you would do anything for them, even die for them if necessary. As for me I used the word "I Love You." Right now I'm trying to tell this girl I love her but I can't bring myself to tell her because it might change our friendship drastically. Hopefully I'll ask her out and then tell her when the time is right.

It is hard to know when you are in love... and hard to tell when somebody actually loves you back. I speak from experience... TRUST ME.

But, if you play it safe and don't take chances, you might miss out on the best part of being alive.

I never took the chance, and after a long year things have never really changed. I missed the one guy my heart wanted. I am just hoping that this time, things will change.

I have never told someone I loved them erm Well i have but we were just messing around.

I've never liked someone enough to even considering falling in love in the first place. I'm not very easy...
