They say actions speaks louder than voice... but actions may be misinterpreted...Do we really need to say i love you constantly to a person to remind her/him the he/she is loved by us? Why do we ask the question 'do you love me'? A priest told once that the reason why people cried a lot when someone passess away because we fail to say 'i love you' to the person, and we find it hard to let go...It feels great when you hear the words 'i love you' before you open your eyes in the morning and shut them up at night...

yeah! when we say it, we should mean it. anyway, it still hard to utter the words when it really is not meant for the person and i'm sure that person will know if it's meant for him/her.

I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve and I have a pretty big one. I always make it a point to tell the people in my life that I love them, especially when we are parting and before going to sleep... you never know what the next day or even the next hour will bring, so it's good to know that you always leave them knowing where your heart is at.

My husband and I say it everyday, and when one of us is leaving the house for work, etc. We say it before we go to sleep at night, and then just randomly during the day. We have had this thing since we got married, we were married on 10-22 so when it is 10:22 a.m. or p.m., one of us (when we remember, LOL) will just say "I love you" outloud. We say "I love you", to our kids a lot, I make sure I give each one a hug and say good morning to them (a kiss too), and a kiss/hug/and I love you at bedtime. I think it's good to do, atleast it works for us!!

I am not used to say these words so much because I am more of an actiona person. I show my feelings more rather than telling about them. Whats the use of talking or saying things that we can show? I firmly believe that actions speak louder than words.

hello chonelo. welcome to myLot. hope you find it good here. anyway, my boyfriend and i exchange our "i love yous" everyday of our lives. we are in a long distance relationship and one way for us to strengthen the relationship is to make our partners confident that we love them. and saying i love you to each other is one best way to prove it. to some, they find it cheezy saying that it will fade after sometime. but if you really mean it and that you really love your partner, it will never fade. infact, it will get stronger and more sincere day after day... anne

for me saying "i love you" is one of the sweetest things i want to hear every minute, specially when it comes to the one you love so much. I often say i love you to my partner as in every minute seriously, sometimes she thinks im no longer telling it seriously because i always tell her that words everytime.. when ever i woke up, before eating bfast lunch dinner even in every text or phone call i made.. =) yeah i agree actions speaks louder than voice.

before i say i love you almost all the time but as time past by, the essence becomes lesser and lesser so i decided to just say it once. after i broke up with my ex, it took me a long time to find another one and i only say i love you the day we became lovers. i say i love you now not often but on those times that really need love like misunderstandings, after settling a quarrels, and stuffs related to those.

as often as i can. it's true that we might regret not saying what we ought have said to the ones we love. someday, it might be too late. so while they're still with you, you just have to tell them you love them. it won't kill you to tell them how you feel. right chon? :)

I say it everytime i feel like saying it and after we talk on the phone or before going to sleep. We both do that everyday! I think we really don't need to say it everyday or every minute, those words can also be express through actions without saying anything, just let your partner feel it.

I say I love you at least 3 or 4 times a day. Lots of people just say it to say it, but I'm not like that I only say it if i mean it

I tell my husband that I love him all the time and he also tells me. He is my true soulmate and I do love him that much. So I like to tell him all time because it makes me and also him feel so great. I think you should tell the ones that you love that you do indeed love them. I tell my son all the time that I love him.

I try to say I love you to my hubby everyday. I say it to my children everyday. I do try to show that I love them. I am the only one who works, so I guess that I am showing that I love them is by working to help keep the family going. I know what you are talking about. I love when my husband hugs me. It is like he took that moment out of his life to show me that he really cares, especially before I have to go to work.

you can say it too much so that it gets taken for granted and isn't special anymore...I try to say it about once a month.

Actions say louder than words. To say such good words is appreciable, however there must be honesty and sincerity mingled in.Otherwise it will become hollow slogan and no more please you.

My husband and I say I love you at least every morning when we wake up together. He works third shift and I work first or second shift so whenever he wakes up I tell it to him and when he wakes up I tell it to him. :) We both mean it every day and we just can't get enough of saying it to eachother.

I say it very often to my boyfriend and he says it very often too. I believe it's because we are on long-distance relationship and there is not much "action" to show we love each other. So we have to tell and constantly remind each other that we are in love. I do agree with what the priest told you. I would rather say it and let the person know I love him than being sorry that I haven't said it enough. It's good words and it brings a sense of good feelings to the person who hears it, so I think we can be more generous with these magic three words.
