Is the 3 letter word overrated?

When you hear "I LOVE YOU" too much it just feels overrated doesn't it? Does your partner say I love you too often that sometimes it does not feel that special anymore? Do you feel that sometimes it just comes out as plain as a HI and HELLO? Can you tell whether it is straight from the heart or just spoken out of habit? Would you prefer your partner to be very vocal or would you rather not hear it that often and yet just feel it through their actions? As they say actions speak louder than words but if you truly love someone you will be able to express your love through words too...

My hubby is chinese and though he does get to say wo ai ni, It's the all very chinesy way of saying 'i love you' that i like so much. It's the way he will play around with my hair and say that it's his hair cos his mum used to pray for him to have lots of hair cos he has very thin hair and now he has me i have thick and long hair. The way he rubs my feet, man does he do the best foot rub around. The way he takes me to nt chicken wing place every saturday cos he knows that is the hightlight of my week. The way he gets me chinese movies to watch at night cos he knows how much i love chinese culture. I have learnt from the chinese so many different shades of 'i love you'.

Yes I would have to agree that Chinese people are less vocal when in comes to saying wuo ai ni... But it indeed is better that you feel it more than you just hear it huh.. And when your hubby speaks those 3 words, it makes it even more special..

My partner is kind of far away from me and we meet online rarely. When we end our chatting session with each other we use the three words "I love you" and for me it's kind of special because I do not hear it everyday. I only get to read what my partner typed and it's really special for me. I am not sure that I would have the same feeling if I heard the word 100s of times in a day.
