    i am not one of those people

    who say i love you, just to say it. i think its cruel to tell someone you love them, when you dont, its like playing a game. i would never tell you that I love you if i didnt mean it.

    Delicate

    I have never told someone that I loved them and not meant it.  It's just not something that I would do.  Love is such a delicate and special emotion to share with someone and it should never be abused or named if it's not meant.  I would be doing myself...

    I can't tell someone I love them

    unless I really do. i just won't, even if they tell me they love me. All they'll get is "Okay" or "Thanks" Yea it's mean but I can't just throw love around like that. If I do say I love you then I usually hope you will say it back because I love to be loved. It makes me smile...

    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.

    ..partly because of a certain experience.

    Had something on with a friend and he'd tell me he loved me, but although I really liked him at that time, I never said it back cos I wasn't sure. Well a while later he told me he felt like something didn't feel right and it'd better if we remained as good friends, so there! I...

    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...

    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...

    I truly wouldn't. Why would someone lie about

    loving someone? You don't play with someone's feelings like that. If I tell you that I love you, I really do love you. Whether you're one of my friends, my family, or a boyfriend. If I love you, then I love you. :)

    Love Is Not a Word to Toy With

    Love, to me is an emotion that is related to the sense of strong affection, something that I often see used loosely. This intense, interpersonal attraction and  the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional...

    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 much it hurts inside. It leaves this cold and empty feeling in my stomache I've been trying to eliminate for years. I can't tell you how much I love you, there are no words to describe what I feel, not in any language. Believe me, I've tried to put my feelings onto paper, but...

    I believe there are different types of love.

    Like I love multiple people. I love my mum and my family, I love my friends, and I love you Leslie. But I love all of them in different ways. I love my mum and family, but I'm not in love with them, it's just a bond we have because we are family. I love my friends on here, but...

    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 don't express my emotions verbally very often.

    So if I tell you I love you, then you better know that I mean it with every fiber of my being.

    to experience jealousy is to experience love.

    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...
