Do We Need to Say "I Love You" All the Time?

There are times that saying "I love you" is becoming habitual. It seems that the magical words had not been said sincerely. "Is there really a perfect time for saying it?" I found it funny sometimes thinking that if your special someone is clinging to you. If you forgot to say "I love you", a special someone will be in doubt. Is saying "I love you" should be always said at all times. Image Credit: pixabay.com

I agree. It shouldn't be said because someone needs to hear it.

I think the gesture is more important than words. One can repeat whole day ' I love you ' but his /her gesture has not much sign of it then it's worthless.

@Bodyandbrain yes, otherwise, it will be mechanical and pointless, like they show in some films

Saying "I love you" is like a voice recorder than can repeat it again and again.

@Shavkat yes that's right, saying it genuinely at times is nice but over doing anything is boring and useless.

@Shavkat sometimes, actions speak louder than words. But, yeah, saying 'I love you' again & always is becoming a trend. It should be expressed rarely on special occasions! Anyways, as long as there is love, what's the need of words ?

I think it should be said in perfect timing and not asking to say it. Some girls are like this.lol They wanted to hear it as often as you should.

That's not needed actually all the time but we, women, often need it. What about you men?

I always and often say I love you to my boyfriend, even though those words seem not enough to express my love to him. I think saying those 3 words is a must for me.

I think it should always in action. It is easy to say the words but it is difficult to show in actions.

@Shavkat indeed, because actions speak so much louder than a voice. and the eyes, they should slow the love, right? happy Sunday

No, I think you are right @Shavkat ; it just becomes something to say without it's true meaning. It should only be said when it is truly heart-felt.

I also felt weird if we keep on saying it without the intention of saying the words. It seems not real.

@Shavkat Exactly; it becomes just a sentence. That's like the short version "Love Ya". People just say it anymore just to say it.

It is not important to tell your beloved that you love them but to make them really feel that how much they mean to you. LOVE doesn't demand to be told it demands to be felt.

It is not also a requirement and an obligatory action to do because someone preferred to hear it. It is not healthy.

@Shavkat we can't prefer it as unhealthy everytime but yeah most of the time it is not necessary! :)

When you are that special to someone you don't need to say a word, love is something that words can't express.

I will not argue with this opinion. Because I agree that it shouldn't always by saying the words. Two people can express by just looking at each other. It was like knowing what's running in their mind without saying anything.

@Shavkat Yeah of course. We can't force ourselves to tell those words and it is not only just words it's a feeling that comes from the heart which should be expressed.

I think it's a situational habit. Like at church all my friends say it and I have learned it as a learned response. I mean it but it's more like family love. Love of a sister, brother or parent or grandparent.

I do think that saying "I love you" depends on whom it will be said to. The meaning of these words will have its significance to family, friends, relatives and the like. It can be meaningful if how it was being perceived.

I think this depend on how stable the relationship is.If , in the courtship days you laid the foundation that 'tells' the other person how much you really value them then there is not such a need to give verbal assurances of 'I love you' so frequently. A woman on TV was once asked when last her husband said 'I love you"...she said 40 years. Then she added, 'He said he tell me if he changes his mind'! Apparently, he never did...and they were both comfortable with that! That's pretty solid.

That's what I am pointing to, my friend. If the relationship is so strong and been together for so many years, it doesn't test the relationship by always saying "I love you."

We can say I love you in different ways. Hugging a person, helping a person, giving someone a gift, cooking for someone are forms of saying I love you

These are forms of showing our affection to others. Some people cannot utter the words but it shows in our actions.
