Not all people says "i love you" from time to time. but do you think it really matters? I had a bad nightmare a week ago where i saw my self dead. After that bad dream I prayed and said God thank you for waking me up. If God never let me wake up that moment I will not be able to see my love ones. I realized that saying I love you especially to your love ones should not be said on special occasion but rather everyday.

I don't tell my husband I love him every time I see him. I think in some cases, it becomes too mechanical and it loses it's meaning. Like when you go to the store and the greeter asks how are you. They really don't care, but it's part of their job and they are on auto pilot when they ask it. I told my DD that I loved her when I dropped her off at the babysitter's this morning. I told my DH I loved him a couple days ago when he had a really bad day at work and needed something to make him smile. I'm not afraid or ashamed to admit how I feel, but I do think when it's said too much, it loses it's meaning.

Yes it matters. Telling people how you truly feels confirms it every time. I say I love you every time I get off the phone with my significant other. I tell my sisters I love them all the time. I tell my parents and EVERYONE all the time. Love is something that should never be in question and should always be expressed.

wadays I tell frequently! When my mom was alive, I never utter those words to her. Now when she's gone, I regret..I don't want to have those feelings again it's really terrible. So I tell how much I love them and I don't mind doing it all the time!

I can not remember the exact time when I say" I love you".My father passed away several years ago,left the heavy burden to my mother.Now I am a uniersity student,I need a lot of money to support my tuition fee.The fee is almost from my mother.A little pare is from my scholarship.I know my mother works very hard every day to make as much money as possible.Many times, I really want to tell my mother that"Mom, thank you so much and I love you forever.I will try my best to study hard and return your love in the future.But I dear not to say that to mother, because on the one hand,I am a shy girl;on the other hand,our nationality is connotative.Wheneven I want to say but dear not to say,I feel very afflictive.Actually,I think tell what you want to say to the person you want to tell is very important.Only you speak it out,they can understand clearly.I will try my best to overcome the shy and tell my mother "I love you forever"

YEsterday, I told Him in my dreams. I am not really open to my feelings although I really love him. I did not commit myself in a relationship to him because I just don't think love can be enough. It hurts to see him hurting but I know it would be worse if we go deeper than friendship.

When i started to fall in love with my girlfriend seven years ago ,i loved to tell her 'i love you','you are my angle',and she liked to hear that,but now,after living with me for couple of years,though i still like to tell her how much i love her,her response become 'disgusting',with her little tongue sticked out.

I AGREE with you. Telling someone you love them everyday won't be such a bad idea.Ü I always say it to my loved-ones whenever i feel it! Though using it everyday might disappear the "magic" of the word, what do you think?Ü

When I talk to my parents I always end the call with I love you both. They are in their 70's and you never know when their time will be up and I want them to know how much I truly love them. I also say it to my boyfriend who lives far away everytime we talk because I truly love him and miss him.

Everyday, to my loved ones, to my friends, to my special someone and most of all to God. Eventhough I never say it often, I'm putting it into actions because loving someone doesn't necessarily means saying it but expressing that kind of feeling is sweeter.

I tell my hubby I love him many, many times a day. We always tell one another that we love the other when we are apart (going to work, one of us going to the store). We always tell each other that we love one another when we get off the phone. Our philosophy is that we want that to be the last thing we said when the time comes that something happens to one of us. (Just so you don't think we are newlyweds...we've been married for 6 years and dated for 2!)

I agree with you saying i love you to your love ones makes them feel good. And you show them how much you value them. I do say it everday to my husband because I want him to feel how much I truly love him. It makes us couple more tight to each other and it bonds us everytime we say it to each other.

i always and everyday say "I love you" to my parents...these days, many kids don't say that they love their parents...so i think they should learn how to say it.. well, to other people its hard for me to say "I love you"...even my friends, i cant say that to them..and i dont have any special someone so..its only my family that i really love right now..

I always say I love you to my boyfriend and my friends. My family is not huge on saying I love you. We say it once in a while but we've never been that type of family.

yes you are right. we should always let our close ones know how much we love them and how much they mean to us. if we dont show our love and care,then what the use being a human. hehehehe. but seriously i always tell my close friends and my family and specially my love that how much i love and care for them. it will make you happy and other too so love others and others will love you.

I tell my loved ones I love them every single day! The last time I said, "I love you" was earlier today, and I said it to my dog! I know she doesn't know what it means, but I do love her and tell her often!

it's totally hard to say I love You when you really don't mean it. I mean, i'm talking for myself. The funny thing is, I also feel awkward saying I love you to my parents eventhough I see them everyday. I don't want to say it to them, i just want to show it to them. Only if i've proven that i have been a good son to them, then that's the time I would be confident to say I Love You to them.

I just did a few minutes ago when I was chatting with my boyfriend. It is really better if we tell the ones we love how we love them than when it is too late.
