i'm one of those people who loves saying "I LOVE YOU" to people i really care about regardless whether theyre just friends or family or a special someone. I believe that when you love someone, you like saying those special words. I feel liberated everytime I say it. I love saying or texting those words to a couple of my friends and at first I can feel theyre uncomfortable with it but after a while they're saying those words to me too.. Of course, it didnt mean anything more than love for a friend and they understood that. LOve is generous, I believe that aside from expressing love through action, you need to say it in words as well.

when we used to say "i love you" it is really meaningful words and it is normal to say it in our family, friends, and in our partner. Sometimes when we used it to our friends like boys sometime some of them they misunderstood of it, because they know when we say that to them, it means you like him, or you feels attracted to them. But the good of it, some of them, we will know that they like you too or they also attracted to you based on my experienced. I'm right?

Same here, I'm often saying "I love you" to the people I really appreciate. Sadly, sometimes it's too excesive using that phrase, so instead of saying that, I say: "You're a great friend", "Thank you for being my friend", etc. Anyway, I should mark that "I love you" shouldn't be used with the person you really love as girlfriend/boyfriend unless it's a good moment. My ex-girlfriend used to say that phrase during all day, and I got really tired, so we broke up after few days.

I totally think so,love is generous,and i always say i love you to my friends or family.That's important.Of course,they could know your love through your express.Your eye contact with them,and i think the honesty we expressed could definitely touched them!

I also believe that you should say I Love You every single time you feel it like saying..I mean there are a lot moments when you are just so drowned in this feeling of love that your words should also reflect that.. you can always make someone feel loved by your actions and care..saying i love you will only make them feel more loved..but these three words should only be said to someone whom you really love...it can be parents,a best friend or lover or anyone whom you really care about..

Love is All there Is! Love is the most Powerful Energy Ever. God, is a God of Love. God's Love is Absolute! God Loves with an Absolute Love that demands Absolutely Nothing in Return. God makes no demands with His Love This means That our sins are completely and absolutely forgiven, even before they are committed!

That goes the same for me too. I am the one who keeps saying the three words to my husband whenever I get the chance to. It's important to tell the people you love how you really love them because words can create an impact to one's feelings. So keep saying I love you and mean it. It can make a difference.

No, i dont like saying "I love you" to people i really care about. This is because i think that talk is cheap and action is expensive. I cant tell someone that i love him/her but for all you know i could hate him/her deep down in my heart. I feel extremely uncomfortable if i text my friends saying i love you. I makes me feel very crooket if you know what i mean. Females most probably don't really mind saying "i love you" to a friend i presume. Overall, i think love is expressed and cannot be given through mere words. This is merely my opinion.

It is certainly nice to say those words to somebody that you love, however you have to be careful that you don't say it too often because then you run the risk of the person you're talking to taking you for granted and then the words won't mean as much as they might have done before. There are other ways that you can show your love to people rather than just the word, such as romantic gestures and buying nice gifts for them, so you really shouldn't forget about any of these methods as they can be very effective.

I agree with you. Say I love you, closest to the people who truly loved one, can please the person. however, it will certainly better, if accompanied by an action, which reflects the feelings of affection. so, realize that word "i love u" with an action..

I agree, it is nice to hear someone saying I LOVE YOU. It is also one way of saying thank you or expressing your gratitude. I believe saying i love you also strengthens the relationship. it also makes someone feel special and important.So now I love you!

I think saying the three magic words all the time is not bad as long as you truly mean it. Having people around who let us feel being loved is one of the best thing life could offer and saying "I Love You" is the best gift in return. Words are also needed to further justify your actions for it is the only chance we've got while we are still alive.

I just feel the same way. I am used to say that to the person i adore. To GOD,my family, friends and to my lovable boyfriend. Expressing your feeling is such a good thing. :)

I'd rather not reveal in words. I prefer, expressed in deeds. I do not like to spit the word love.

saying i love is not so very important,the person you like you must express it at once that you like her/him but saying every time is not too ok. because the person you ll say this again again he ll get a bit proud of that act...... every time care can for them can express what actually you feel about him.............

yes, i do say I LOVE YOU always to my parents especially to my mom.First, my mom always say it to me and i am not used to it so, i felt awkward.But then, eventually i get used it and saying also those words to them even in a public places i say i love you. Because I realized that saying I LOVE YOU to your love ones will really improve your relationship to be more stronger and also by saying it it also shows how you feel and care about them.I realized also that when will you say that word" I LOVE YOU" to your loves when they die? so, still they are alive I am always tell them how i am grateful and love them everyday through this three simple words.

I agree with you, we need to say the words to the many people we care about. I also feel liberated when saying "I love you" and like you I use this words to friends, family, and my beloved ones. Of course it means differently to whoever we say it. "I love you" has become a universal expression of love that sometimes I also say it to express a deep gratitude on something done by others for me... I love you....

I say those words to my husband every night, when i kiss and hug him, before i sleep. I like to do that, every night before we go to sleep. For our daughter, i would also say "love you anak", but i can fully say it to her through text. Would you believe, i also say that to my lady boss while i hug her , when i am so happy for her help when i needed it most.

Your right, it does our hearts good to hear those words once in a while as long as we see that the words are sincere regardless if friend, family, or lover.
