i can say that im a loving person,but....i dont often say i love you to the people i love.i dont know but its hard for me to utter the words specially if i really mean it.i prefer to show to them that i love them than say the thing.for me its easier to do it by action than by saying it,its more sincere to me.sometimes,its so easy to say i love you but we dont really mean it,i've heared people doing it.so,maybe that is why i show my love thru my action than saying i love you more often...as what the saying goes,action speaks louder than voice..what you think huh?!

I once knew a couple who would say darling to each other when people were around but fight like cats and dogs when alone. Isn`t this hypocrisy? Similarly just saying I love you to everyone without meaning it is also hypocrisy. Love should come from the heart and not just uttered by the tongue.Two people in love with each other don`t have to keep saying it whenever they meet, a look is more than sufficient to convey ones feelings.So merely uttering the 3 little words has no meaning if you do not mean it. It is better to keep quiet than show your hypocrisy.As you say, action speaks louder than words, just a look, a gesture or a gift can convey more than empty words.lol.

In fact, I always say I love u to my husband. I never feel it's hard to say so. But, to my parents or my siblings, thought we love each other, we hardly say I love you to each other. We just show our love by actions. It is a little weird, right? But if we do say 'I love you ' to parents or siblings, we will feel much more weird. Maybe becuase we don't have the habit of saying our love out. :D

Actually. We're the same. I dont like saying I love you. It's just a sound that comes out of your mouth. Afterall actions speak louder than words, Dont they? I prefer to do things to the people I love other than saying I love you. But I do say those 3 words occasionally to remind them.

also difficult for me to say, I often say I LOVE YOU to my child's on to my husband. I wanted to hear the words from the mouth of my husband. but I will not get a word from my husband. my husband also include people who disclose difficult feelings. other than that I feel my husband has changed.

I know what you mean, I am a very loving person, but I sometimes feel so sappy saying it, it is just hard! Plus when those words are just said and thrown around it cheapens the full meaning behind it. I like to say it to my sisters just because I feel sappy saying it to my parents all the time, and I have no one else to say it to. Except my dog. I tell her like twenty times a day. It’s not the same though

As for me, I always say I love you to my fiance. Everytime we're gonna go part ways the word I LOVE U is always there, if we're just hanging around we both say those words also. It feels kind of different if we're not able to say those words maybe because we really mean it every time we say it. I find it a bit hard to say I love you to my parents but of course everytime I talk about them with my friends I never fail to mention how much I love them. :)

I always say 'I honestly love you' to my angel whenever we part ways. Well, I think its sweet. But saying it doesn't really matter, as long as you're showing it.

I always tell my boyfriend that I love him. In fact i just sent him a text message telling him that I love him. I show that I love him through my actions as well as my words because I believe your actions need to support your words.

i am very expressive and i feel very comfortable to express my feelings. i keep telling my children I LOVE YOU. when they leave for school in the morning i always say I LOVE YOU ALL.....i provide training to youg students and i always encourage them by telling them I LOVE YOU or I LIKE YOU....when they come up with an inovative idea, i will say I LOVED IT...and i keep telling my husband I LOVE YOU and he loves it. people feel comfortable and at ease with me.....because i openly express my feelings....it's just a matter of getting rid of your inhibitions....overcome your inhibitions and you will be able to say I LOVE YOU....and you will have to practice it.

hi queennee!! i totally agree with you in the point that love must be showed in our actions, because doing is not saying and because it is easy to say i love you but you can't do something to prove it, however, when we say " I love you " through the action we mean it, but when we confine and we only say without doing anything we will just be liars ... to conclude, " action speak louder than voice " thanks a lot

I say i love you while i have a change. I don' t wait for the time that they are not there or I am not there. I want them to feel my love while I am alive so that love of mine, they can share it to their loved ones. I say i love you to my parents, siblings, friends, and even pets.

Well, loving somebody can be expressed through many ways. Saying "I Love You" is only one of those many things we can do. I agree with you that some people find it a lot easier to show some actions rather than saying those magic "I Love You" words over and over again. Anyway, saying it all the time is kinda boring right? I sometimes give a surprise gift to the people I love, take them to unique places and enjoy new things with them. Sometimes I just spend the whole afternoon cooking in the kitchen or do gardening with them or even play some games with them. The point is I try to spend more time with those people I love, my family. Yeah... I do love my family, don't you feel the same as I do?

Yes, me and my husband commonly say I LOVE YOU everyday. We also say this to our daughter everyday to let her know how much we love her. Once we say this line to each other, we really mean it. It's very important to express your love always to your love ones because life is too short so we have to make time and make it useful. Have a nice day!

I hardly say it or write these three simple words. It means a lot to me. I rarely say it. So when I do, be sure I am very serious to it. I can only say it from the bottom of my heart:) I love China

Me also often say I loVe you to the people whom i love much but instead i show it most of the time in action.. I am shy to tell to the people that i love them because maybe there are times i cannot give my love to them..Some would say that you are just saying it and not doing it in action, or you made your promises to be broken. I really believe in this saying action speaks louder than voice.. Do you have another thing to show on how to say always I LOVE YOU.? Is this helpful when you are in love.?
