If you say it do you really mean it? Do you say it to your love ones, like your father, mother, brother, sister, wife/husband, children? Or do you used for ordinary means? How often do you used it. How do you find its value?

I work with my son who is recovering from an automobile accident. I tell him I love him several times a day. Each time I stretch him or feed him or work with him in any way. I haven't stopped to count yet! I also taught him to sign "I love you" and he does that back to me a couple of times a day. I can't wait to hear him say those words again!

My husband and I exchange I love yous numerous times a day, and it's not a routine sort of thing, at least I like to think it's not. haha. sometimes we say it out of the blue, when we just feel like saying it, other times, we say it everytime we say bye on the phone or when we email each other.

I am saying I love you most of the times, and when I say I always meant it. I always make sure that even if I keep on saying it most of the time, the value and essence is still there.

If I say I love you I always mean it because I am not a hypocrite who knows how to lie without being noticed. Usually I only say it to the one I love, because I really mean it when I say it. Actually, it is quite hard for me to say the three words even to my mother and father, and not to mention to my siblings, because we are not used to express our feelings up to that extent. It really feels awkward to me. However, I often say it to my husband, because I feel it very comfortable to say it to him. The value of the word is very big, and I never say it just to get anything from someone. I only say it when I really mean it from the depth of my heart, and out of my true sincerity.

"I love you" has become a cliche word devoid of the real feeling or emotions it purprts to demonstrate So its repetetion day in and day out is not going to make you or any one a loving person Real love is sacrifice and not demonstration In the present the phrase has taken form form of aa mchanised verbal greeting assurance rather than to convey the real love Do I love more if I repeat it again and again and love less if I do not do so ? It is now ingrained in the western culture to say so but her in India and othe oriental cultures it rarely goes out of the mouth expect for the children or grand children I my 50 years of very happy married life I would not have uttered this word even once to my wife nor she has ever said so there is a mental hesitancy or thought lessness onour part even to to thin like that But there is no less love between us perhaps more than the youg cuples who blurt out" Ilove you " at every occassion well now the times are different if you do not say I love you it may connote a feeling of coarseness n Is IT?

I always say the word I love you to my boyfriend cause I always wanted him to know how much I do love him. I do the same with the family especially the kids and they reply back. It does mean a lot for me, I express how I feel everytime.

I am not used to show my feelings even to my family. I am very discreet when it comes to emotions. I don't know why but I just don't like being showy or what. I can only count to my fingers the times I said I love you to my mom, but I know my mom knows how much I love her even if I don't used to say it loud because I show it through my actions. For me love is not a matter of how often you say it, but it is a matter of how much you love someone. Do you agree guys?

To be honest I'm not the type of person who always say I love you to anybody, even if that is my family or love ones. I know that it is really important to say that word because it's a sense of security and assurance that I love them. But it's really hard to say that word. Sometimes I wonder if I'm capable of loving at all. I love you is such a sincere word and if you said that to someone you will be forever a slave by them. So I guess I'm just afraid of getting hurt in the process. Saying that three words can make me vulnerable.

I used to say it to my ex-girlfriend whenever I felt like it. I felt that I said it more than her, so I felt that I was being whipped by always being the one to say it. Even now when we just hang out as friends I still have the urge to say "I love you." I'm controlling that urge because we cannot be together because are ultimately incompatible for the future. I say I love you to my little sister, mom, and dad. Sometimes I forget to say I love you or sometimes it just doesn't come out, maybe because I'm mad or distracted with something else, maybe even Mylot. Lol. Sweet ;)

I do say it quite often, but I think that it is nicer to show people that you love them then to say it all the time. But I myself do say it to my children all the time, because I want them to know that they are loved. And they do say it back to me too, but only when they want to. I do not want them to feel obligated to tell me so.
