The Thing About 'I love you and I love you too'...

well, i received this text message before and had got me thinking after reading it. We know how people more often than not say 'I love you' and we hear the response 'I love you too' but then the first isn't actually a question so why respond to it? When someone tells me 'I love you' out of the blue I'd go... 'oh, okay.' or 'meh~ seriously?' (well it depends who says it though). there are times i say 'i love you too' but that's to my sister who wouldn't stop what she is saying until she gets her reply. I'm also not the type to give 'i love you' so easily. oh here's another thought. when someone said: I love you, have you answered with: I love myself too? hahahaha XD

Well, it depends on the person whom you are saying I love you to, for me when told that he loves me, I also answer I love him or her too, but that depends if I really love that person. If he's still courting me and he say I love you to me, my frequent answer is "why?". Hahaha! I always ask what made him love me. And followed "you should think about it first before saying it to me"! Anyway, I say that phrase to everyone I love esp my children, I want to assure them them that I am here and I can do anything for them.

i agree it depends on who says it and what purpose. haha! that question also comes to mind 'why?' and i agree that when we say it to someone we should know why we did. but i think with the people i know and are dear to me i don't have to ask or know why.

I've shortened it to "You too" when talking on the phone with my Mom. When I tell my Dad I love him, he says "Okay, thank you for loving me." It kinda makes me sad. I'd prefer he answered, "I love you, too." It's so we can all say it and we can all feel loved and accepted! With my family I pass out "I love you" every which way. With other people it doesn't come so easy.

this is a bit different, my cousin would sometimes say 'i miss you' for a greeting instead of a 'hi' and i'll say the same 'okay' and she would laugh and say 'wow, best response' and we would laugh. (its different but i have the same response). maybe you should try asking your father if he loves you too, maybe he'd say i love you.
