I love you.

It’s said all the time. But do people really mean it? Do they know the difference between true love and just a fling?

My best friend had her first boyfriend this year and about three or four months into the relationship, they started saying I love you. The sad thing is, is that they never kissed. Every time she would say I love you, I wanted to ask her, “Do you really?”

I don’t think that you truly love someone until your willing to give up anything and everything to be with them. I love you is meant to be forever, not just a few months or a year.

The saddest part about this is that “I love you” is both overused, and not said enough. For the people who really need to hear it, it’s not heard. But for the people that say it just to say it, you hear it all the time.

Love is a powerful word; it can either break your heart, or complete it. Don’t say “I love you” unless you truly mean it. Everyone will find their true love one day - or at least, that’s what I like to believe - because it’s not just in fairy tales.

I agree with what you said. I myself frequently say that the words "I love you" are a cage, the cage that feels like a security blanket.

i entirely agree, you should be willing to give up anything and ask for nothing to be with the person you truely love.

I agree with the message you are trying to give. Don't say I love you until you know you actually love them.

I believe in forever, but I also believe love is never a fairytale. It can be very difficult.

I believe you can fall in love at thirteen or fourteen if youre mature enough. Im fourteen and I believe Im completely madly in love with my boyfriend for almost a year, but his parents and my parents both say Im mature for my age and that I understand. Hes seventeen so hes mature is up to level too. I think in some situations its all about maturity.

Totally agree. Me and my boyfriend were very good friends for atleast six months to a year before we dated. And weve been dating for almost a full year and I still feel him as my bestfriend and the best boyfriend ever. Im fourteen and hes seventeen so yeah I believe you can also find love as young as 11 or 12.

I believe if you dont really love someone dont say it. Thats the way its overused to me... When people say it just to say it.

Agree, but I do believe if you like someone a kiss isnt bad. I kissed my boyfriend before we started saying I love you.

Ive been dating the same guy for a year, and we say I love you. I mean it with more than my heart and soul. And its not because were dating I started to say it. We were friends at first, and I knew from that moment I loved him like that. He says the same thing. And he said that to me before we even got together. Love is a poweful thing I agree. I love this article by the way.

That is also very true, but sometimes a kiss is a symbol of how much u care abt someone. Sometimes, not all the time tho.
