    Maybe Someday...

    I'm one of those people who seldom heard those three powerful words during my life. Instead, I've been told the opposite "I hate you" more times than I can count. But the past's passed already, so I'm over it...I think. Someday, I'd not only want to hear those three special words...

    I've heard it from family

    and friends but never a significant other. I want to hear it but if he or she can't say it I want to know that they DO love me!

    I want someone to mean it

    when they say it to me. Not like a best friend or a family member saying" I love you". That is love, but I want to really mean someone to someone in a more serious way. I want it to be true love. I just hope I love that person too. If not I'll keeping looking for "The One". That...

    Walk the Talk

    You say you love me all the time, we say it when we say goodnight on those nights when we are not together.  But do you mean it? or has it just become empty words?  What you say and what you do are two different things.  You think that simply but repeating the...

    We All Want To Hear Those Three Words...

    I want to hear those words from a man who knows with an absolute certainty that he loves me. I've heard those three words a number of times from men who don't even really know me. I don't believe those words should be spoken lightly. Mean them sincerely when you say them.

    If the 'someone' actually meant it, and it was not said for ulterior motives.  No one has ever said it and meant it to me.  It was always just what was expected or the 'ulterior motives' idea.  I have begun to believe I lack some fundamental gene or hormone that...

    iv'e never heard them except from family

    and somehow it doesn't mean as much that way. i did have one person on EP say those words to me(you know who you are!) but she never explained what she meant when i asked her so i still don't really know how she feels about me it's not nice feeling unloved.

    I truly believed that of I treated you the way

    I wanted to be treated and had patience that I would hear those words from you. I tried to be the one you could count on. I loom forward to finding someone that is secure enough and loves me enough to say "I love you" because I am ready!

    My Own Stupidity

    I've been with my husband for 22 years, married for 20.  Never--ever has he said "I love you" to me.  It's just not natural.  When I ask him if he loves me, he says you know I do.  Well guess what?  I don't.  Just say the words, I plead.  He shakes his head and walks...

    People sometimes can be shy to say 'I love you'

    to the one they love, but I'm not shy about that, I would hug you hurt and say 'I love you' to your ear and make you feel the heart beat.

    I Love You Words

    Not necessarily true, I think if I hear them again, I most likely wont believe, it seems to me too many men play games, so the I Love You words hold nothing sincere. Im feeling like that lately, but Im still happy and cheerful, because I love me,and I love my life and no way will...

    More Often

    I love when people say they love me because it shows how much they really care.  I especially love it when Charlie looks me deep into my eyes and says the words that I've been meaning to hear.   Which is "I LOVE YOU".  He makes me feel sexy again.
