Are the type of person who always say "I love you" to people you love? Saying it when leaving,after talking to phone,when seeing each other, etc. Are vocal in your feelings or showing your love thru actions?

Express your love. - Express your love today while you have time.
I use to say "I love you" to the Lord when I am praying,to my mom and my dad, when I talk to them on the phone, to my son almost everyday and to my husband everyday, but I love my sisters too but I don't tell them that I don't know why, but I think they know that I love them and care them.

It's nice to know that you say I love you to the Lord.Sometimes showing them how you feel is enough that saying the word.I think your so close to you family and that nice.Keep it up.

There is nothing wrong saying i love you to someone we love as often as we want. I always say i love you to someone i love. Because i don't want to regret not saying the word once i lost him (in case i lost him) have a good day

No, I'm not the type to say "I love you" all the time to family, even my parents. My boyfriend is the opposite and tells it to me, his mom, and his sister. The only person I say "I love you" to is my boyfriend. Usually it's when I get off the phone with him or when we're saying goodbye. But sometimes we'll just be sitting around and out of nowhere he'll say I love you or when he first sees me he'll come up, give me a hug and kiss, and then say I love you. When I hear those words come from him it's the best feeling in the world. Other than him, I don't really say it to family unless they say it first and then I have to answer "I love you too".

We're same,I'm not vocal to my family on how I feel.I'm happy for you that your boyfriend is so vocal in saying that he loves you.

It took me 12 months to say i love you to my partner, even thou he said it to me the first time we had met. I don't like saying it that much, it's the actions more i rather the little things to make me know he loves me. i still don't say it that often to him, once a day is enough to me.

Action is always better than words.Saying it once in day is maybe enough to show your love to him.

I usually say it to my close femail friends but not to males except seniors in family as I am also single . It is a show of affection and closeness . Whether a person always says it from his/her heart and means it can seldom be found out unless he/she reveals it . It doesn't matter actually ,we like to hear our dear ones say " I love you" but whether it's a genuine feeling or not can hardly be assessed . So I mean it when I say it and don't bother to delve into the real basis of others when they say they love me . The three words make me happy and special , thats it . Good luck to you !

Saying it to a person shows your affection to them. For others it is part of their culture or tradition maybe.But as long the love is true don't hesitate to say it.

It's sweet to hear those three words, they are so powerful! I don't tend to say it to my friends or family but I show them that I love them through my actions. My friends tend to throw those words around a bit. Sometimes we they would say it in a joke and when they accidentally hurt the other person ,they would hug them and say I love you! When I have those words be said to me, I feel all happy inside and it makes me feel good about myself. I'm not very vocal so I tend to show my love through my actions, sometimes actions are stronger then words.

For those who are not so vocal in what they feel shows their love through actions, which I find sweeter and sincere.

No I really don't say that word unless I mean it because when you keep on saying it, it kinda gets overused and the feeling with it has no impact. Its just like telling a joke 100 times, your audience will never laugh as much as they did the first time. I'd rather do it in action because it says more that the word "I love you" itself

For some it is easy to say,for some its hard,for others they show it thru action. If you really love a person you have to say and show what you feel.

I say I love you a lot. But usually it doesn't mean that much. Ironically, I've never said I love you to my parents who I do love them so much. I think true love is in every little thing you do to people you really care.

Yeah some people say it a lot but how will you know that the person it.Ironically,some are hard time telling to the people they love most like parents. There is awkwardness sometimes if you are not used to it.

It is easy to say that you love that person, but showing your love & affection to him/her is hard... If you love someone don't just say it, show it.

yeah action is speak louder than voice... To some people it's easy but for some its hard. But how will you know that it is sincere?

The words "I love you" and "Forgive me" are the hardest to say. But the sincere. It's hard to admit you have special feelings towards a person, especially if you're not sure that they are mutual. It's hard to apologize, to admit you were wrong. But ... "I love you" has a meaning so much. It is a statement with a great emotional charge. In general, I noticed that people are very hard to say it. Especially those who think they are strong. Especially those who do not want to lose touch with reality even one second. However ... there is nothing more admirable and more beautiful than to have the courage to tell someone how you feel about it. To have the courage to go to that person, to dare to look deeply into her eyes and tell him loud and clear "I love you". So many problems would solve the world if we had the courage to acknowledge our feelings and share it! Saying "I love you" to someone is not a weakness is something that most people make it strong!

The three words "i love you" mean more than what you think. When you tell someone that you tell them, then you better mean it, or it could ruin what you have if they find out that you just said it because they said it. Whenever you say those three words it is like your whole life changes. The way you man/woman acts toward you or the way they even look at you...if you say i love you is not to hear from there it's not that i want to, not to say, but if you only knew, how easy it would be to show then how to feel, more than words is all that you have to do to make it real, then you wouldn't have to say that you love her cause that you already know...

Good evening dear friend ardoy073 , well to start of , i'd like to say that when i used to be a teenager and started to experience life as a persone involved in a boyfriend and girlfriend type of situation , for example , with my first girlfriend i was feeling verry strongly and deeply in love with her from the first day that i knew her , but off course as this was all new to me , i was not verry motivated to tell her how much i feel for her , but i think that i never had to say something , because i was enjoying and loving every moment spent with her , and i was ashamed to show it , but after the first three weeks , i felt a need to tell her , but i was not sure if i was doing right by saying it out loud , soo...i had to wait for her to say it first , it tooked two months and when she said those words i felt a little bit compelled and rejoyced , so afterward every time i felt happinnes towards her and i was with her , i felt the need to tell her that i love her , and so i did. But it is true , that with time , it may simply become just a verbal reflex , like when you leave to work you sometimes hear " Have a great day at work , I love you" or "kisses" , and the answer comes almost like a reflex " I love you too" or "Kisses back" . Have a great evening dear friend
