I say it but not that often and not that rarely also. But i believe that one should not stop saying I love you to the one he loves because I have seen that when we are used to say i love you to someone and we stop it after some time the person may think that he is no more loved.

i have told my mom that i love her many times, too often in greeting cards i sent to her... i am not very showy about my feelings and i let her know in things i do for her, not so much in words.

I love my mother, so it's not hard for me to say it. She gave birth to me. I say I love you everytime I talk to her, even if we're mad at one another. You never want the potential for the last thing you say, to be anything but I love you.... Do you love your mother? Have you guys had problems? If you love her, she'd probably like to hear it....

In the past few years I have gotten into the habit of telling my mother that I love her but it still feels a little forced and uncomfortable because we had a bad relationship for a long time. After she retired she became more mellow and we enjoy seeing each other now. I don't get to see her often as we live so far from each other but we talk on the phone and email so I say I love you then, too.

I do say it to my parents, but not very rarely, nor too often, this way, its importance is always maintained.. I believe, saying these words to our parents is indeed important, as dubbed love is equivalent to lost love..

i always say "i love you to her" hope you won't take it negatively...but i think you should start saying it to her...life is short my dear..maybe tommorow she will never hear you when you are ready to say those special words to her.

My mother and I have a special relationship. She lives 7 hours drive away from us but there's never a week that goes by without keeping in contact somehow. I tell her I love her all the time. She brought me up this way ... to be expressive of my emotions and feelings all the time and now I am passing that lesson to my kids as well.

I have nevery said "I love you" to my mother and neither has she. I dont know why. But the next time I go to see her I will try and say it. I dont know why but I feel it may be difficult.

No, growing up, my family never said 'I love you' to anyone. I might have whispered it at the end of a recent conversation though. My mom doesn't like it, but she's in her 80's now and I want her to hear me. I taught all of my kids to say 'I love you' as often as they wanted. I didn't like growing up without hearing those words and so I changed things when it was my turn to be a mom. I think part of the repressed expressions of love came from my mom's generation. Parents didn't hug and kiss their kids, or say they loved them. Well, at least not mine_

My family is not demonstrative either in words or actions and we never use those words at all. We would rather go by actions. The best way I could show my mom that I loved her was to do things for her, to be a dutiful, obedient son which was difficult to do because I was a naughty boy. But I always did my best to help her out when I can.

To be frank,i have never said"i love you"to my mother.I am the person who are not good at expressing my emotion. I love my mother so much,she is the most important person in my life.From i was a child,my mother tried her best to let me have a better life available.so i love her so much.I study hard for her.I love to see her smile.I want to earn much money.I want to buy what ever she likes.but it is really difficult for me to say"i love you"directly. Every day which is my mother's birthday,everyday which is Mother's day,everyday,which is women's day,i will send a present to my mother with my younger sister. But this Mother's day i have not send present to my mother,i study in another city,far away from her,so i want to give her the late present when i finish this semester and go home.but at that day,i give her my best wishes though the telephone.

I have never NOT said I love you to my mother....it's just the way my family is. Even in my extended family, we would think something was wrong or that someone was mad at us if we didn't say "I love you" and get an "I love you too" in return. My family has always made it a point to show each other love in as many ways as possible....kisses, hugs, i love yous, and so on...

Yes, I have said this to my mother many times. She has also told me that she loves me, too. I have to admit that we didn't always say this to each other all our lives. But, we try to do it whenever we remember.
