    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 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...

    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.

    lightly. If I say it then I definitely 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 think that the words I love you are spacial

    and I don't play around and say them to just anybody. I say them to people I care about and that are EXTREMELY special to me.

    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.

    Personally I do not believe in a perfect

    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 can't lie about this one

    though in the distant past I have lied to myself when I didn't know what real love was! Now ironically I struggle to say it to someone I do genuinely love, this is my long standing fear of being vulnerable...which is necessary for true love

    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. :)

    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.

    Ever loved someone so much

    but they live far away so all you could do is send them looong messages attempting to express your love for them but it never can relay it the same way as actually being there with them? If that makes any sense

    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.

    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...

    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)

    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.

    Love Is Not a Word to Toy With
