Saying "I Love You" more often..

Good day fellow mylotters, Just a quick one, is it really true that when you say "i love you" more often to the one you loved it will loose its effectiveness. That, it will just become a mere punch line and will not be as sincere as it was meant to be. These ideas just trembled on my mind because when I heard it a while ago on one of my colleague, I cannot help to react and give my comments.

love not just about words, love more about action. saying "i love you" more often can be a lie.

I think its true that always saying i love you will lose its sweetness because it will just look normal to your partner that you are always telling it to him. I think its better to show to him how much you love him instead of telling it to him because when you say it he will just hear it but when you do it or you will show to in an act how much you love him, he will feel it to his self.

i don't know... maybe sometimes it does or the other way around. Depends on how the other party takes it.

I think it`s better to hear a hi from someone who really loves you than to hear "i love you " from someone who wants to get rid of you.I don`t care if people will tell me i love you or not,i think we all need to feel that but i don`t think we can trust our feelings 100% either.

I think it only loses its effectiveness if it's said without sincerity. It's perfectly fine to say it often if that's how you really feel! You just wanna express yourself!

love is an action word. if you really love a person you will show them. you dont have to have to repeat it over and over. they will know it deep down in there heart if you really show it. soon as somebody ask them do your mate love you they would say yes before the sentence is complete.

that depends, i would say that even if i say i love you every hour to my partner and i do mean it, its meaning is not lost and it does not mean that i am just being repetitive. it really depends on the person. if you do not mean it do not say it, but if you do say it whenever you feel like saying it.

I think it is not the words those speaks but it the way you speak it. Sometimes "I hate you" may sound like "I love you" and vice versa. So if the attitude is right then it will always be effective. What really matters is the message that you really want to convey. Thanks and have a nice day.

I am not sure about it but in my opinion, I don't think it's true. It will depend on who is saying those words. If a guy for instance, says I love you to his girl.. then it is up to the girl how she takes those words. We also have to know and feel whether the guy is sincere in saying such words or not. Some people are just so sweet and expressive that they can't help but say it everyday and every minute to the person they love. I would personally appreciate more if my boyfriend will always tell me that he loves me.. that's saying those lines with all his heart.

Why would it lose its meaning if the one saying that to you really, wholeheartedly loves you? My girlfriend always says that and I do not get tired of hearing it. I will NEVER GET TIRED of hearing it. If she stops saying that, for me, that would mean she no longer loves me. I know that actions speak louder than words but, when they make an effort to make you feel loved and at the same time say that wonderful phrase to you, for me that's heaven. "I love you" is a very powerful phrase that deserves some space in the air, especially when it comes from someone who has strong feelings for you. It will never lose its meaning as long as the one who's saying it means it. Do not be repulsive if your loved one constantly says that phrase to you. That is their testament to the world on how special you are for them.

No, I don't think so at all. I love constantly hearing my boyfriend say "I love you" when we're together and to me, it never loses meaning. Personally, I think it's good to constantly say I love you to the one you love. Even though you both know you love each other, it makes your relationship so much better when you actually put your feelings into words. Just because you both know you love each other doesn't mean that you don't like being reminded by saying and hearing I love you.

I think the timing at which 'I love you' is being said also makes a big difference if it is truly effective or if the person is trying to change the subject. I tell my husband and he tells me every day before he heads off to work, we love each other. We do not know what the day will bring and if that would be the last time we see them. If someone says I love you every ten minutes, it will become a cliche very fast.

I think that when a person says that they love someone it should be said with sincerity. It is a good thing to tell those we love that we love them often but we don't want to get into a habit of just saying it. That could lead us to saying it without feeling.

hi:) I'm an affectionate person, and I always say I love you to every one I love especially to my family and even to my close friends, and it's not only a punch line, I say it because that's what I feel and I want them always to feel that and remember that. because I can't say I love you to those I ain't really love, only for those I truly love, and no one can stop me from saying that. well, about your colleague who said that, I'm not against him because there are some people that are so shy to express they're love for others but easy to express their hate, so ironic.
