I Would Never Tell You I Loved You If I Didn't Mean It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,012 People

    Now how would that make any sense at all?

    But I don't reserve the word love for romance.  I love many of my friends and tell them every chance I get.  You can't tell people too often how you feel about them.  And there is no reason not to be honest if that is how you feel.

    I feel "love" is an extremely strong word

    and would never say it if I didn't mean it. So when it comes to being in a relationship and I haven't said the L word yet I'm sorry. I just feel I'm not ready for it yet.

    Those Words Would Never Leave My Mouth...

    In fact they rarely ever do. The only people who hear those 3 words leave my mouth is family.. And one other person In the past, I had people abuse the words "I love you" to the point they were broken and meaningless. At 14, all "I love you" meant to me was "I want something...

    I love you. Words that can make you

    and break you. They make you feel amazing and like you have someone that truly is with you no matter what, for you. But it can break you easily when you start to see true colors and the secrets come out of their shadows.

    I hateeeeee when people just say I love you

    just to say it or to get what they want! If you don't genuinely love that person, don't say it. I had an ex say he loved me and could see a future with me. I really loved him and cared for him, then one day he just left because of living two hours from me. First of all, if you...

    If I Say It, I Mean It

    I say 'I love you' to the people in my life that mean the most to me. Of course, at the top of my list are my hubby, his kids, and my family. I rarely say good bye to any of these people without telling them that I love them. At the same time, I have some very close friends that...

    When I Say Important Things to You I'm Being Sincere

    I'm not going to say "i love you" capriciously. If i tell you, "i love you", it means i care about you very much - greater and for more reason than i'd normally feel about someone. Please try and also be as sincere when you say things to me if you want me to believe you.

    I Think

    I used to confuse the words "appreciate" with "love." It's a given that I love almost everyone so it should be assumed. Still, I learned. No more throwing the word around. I will only tell the people that I love-love, or am in love with that I love them. Lesson learned...

    "I love you" is not a thing to be spread

    and used often. It holds deep meaning and trust in the person you say it to. It should be sacred. I would never tell you I love you if I didn't mean it. But in today's society I don't think people know the difference between "I love you" & "I hate you"

    Personally I do not believe in a perfect

    Big Mistake

    Lesson learned. I told my first boyfriend I loved him when I didn't- it was over 10 years ago but I remember it so clearly. We were on the phone. I was in the big open kosher kitchen of my parents' house. The messy phone desk with bills and papers...

    Love Is A Mysterious Thing....

    So many use it as a way to verbalize an attachment, but so few understand what it means. Love is a mysterious thing. It becomes when you least expect it; it makes you feel immortal when it's right and takes you to the depths of despair when it's wrong. I have never understood...

    I would never tell you

    that I love you if I don't mean It. Maybe, one day, I won't love you but if I said "I love you" it's because I really loved you in the past. I will never lié on this words because it's difficult to say them for me.

    I remember the day when I first saw him!

    I was a just a shy and awkward freshman with only a few friends, so vulnerable and young. I had never had a real serious relationship and didn't know what love really was, which if I might add is perfectly normal since I was only 15 at the time. However this all changed the day...

    The Power Of Love...

    Love is one of those words that has totally lost its meaning these days. It used to mean so much, and now people use it flippantly and without thought. I hear people saying 'I love this show!' or 'Don't you just love that guy?'.....I understand why they might choose this word...

    So, there are those girls

    that say oh I love you so much! And it's not that its bad or that I don't like them, but I put a lot of value in the word. I'm a hopeless romantic, so that word is a treasure to me. I think it is said too much and not enough.

    It's not a word to be taken lightly using it when u don't mean it is cruel it hurts the people u said it to when u didn't mean it I use it when I talk to my friends if I had a loved one I'd say it to him (if I truly loved him)

    I would never ever tell someone I love them,

    if I didn't love them. I don't think it is right to tell someone you love them, when you really don't. "love" is not a word I throw around freely, so if I say it to you, you can believe it. I would never ever say it to someone is I didn't, fully 100% deep in my heart mean it.

    I haven't said the "L" word to many people in

    my life so you know when I do say it I really mean it. I say it to my family of course, and there was a guy or two in my younger days that I said it to but looking back it wasn't really love. I didn't know what real love was until I met my husband, my best friend.

    Love Is Not a Word to Toy With

    Love is a beautiful bitter fruit.
