In today's world, you don't just say those 3 words to your lover ; you say it to your friends or people you've only known for a short time. Sometimes, it does annoy me but there are people who have great personalities, so you'd probably say, "I love him. He's so great!" But you know it not that kind of love.

Another thing, teen relationships. For most of them, you know a person for 3 months ahat way and yes you may like them that way but when you confess after such a short time, without even knowing him or her so well by saying, "I love you." well you know the rest I guess.

I know a girl who broke up with her bf and after 10 days she gets a new one and she claims she loves him :/

Isn't there anyone who believes in friendship before love like me? ._.

So what do you guys think?

"I love you" is overused. Overused by people who don't really love you or those who feel they & that individual are meant to be & not just by teenagers, and they only known you for a short while. I like to think of friendship more, because if you have a certain ally who's really trustworthy and dependable, it's sort of like a form of a real bond, per say love.

Haha, yeah, I kind of get that. I was always perplexed by how "in love" so many couples from my highschool were. Like, most of these relationships had a shelf life of 3 months, but during those three months? Gosh dang, they were fricking Romeo and Juliet.

You know, I think it's things like Romeo and Juliet that are the problem. When we think of a "true love", we think Romeo and Juliet right? But I mean, Romeo and Juliet only met each others eyes at some party, Romeo says some flowery words outside her window, and then BAM, they want to shag each other? They're willing to die for each other? That's completely ridiculous. It's this idea of "star-crossed lovers", or "love at first sight", that leads a lot of foolish young folks into thinking they can find "true love" so easily.

To me, there's no such thing as "true love", not to say that people can't be in love, but to me... I think that "love" can happen with anyone, as long as you invest enough time into being with that person.

This is why I'm disgusted with most of the couples I see who hook up with each other within weeks of meeting.

It was like this when I first moved into my residence for my first year at university. I suppose, if I had been paying attention, I could have seen the same things happening during my first year of high school. But, within the first two weeks, you see the couples forming. And then, a few weeks later, you see the couples falling apart.

Ugh.

I wish people would be more responsible with their love. I wish people would stop looking for some kind of magic instant chemistry, and instead, invest in a long term relationship, building love upon friendship and understanding. I wish people would stop looking for "love at first sight", and instead, just form genuine relationships with people, with no romantic motives, and then maybe realize ones feelings later.

YOU'VE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR ONLY LIKE... 2 WEEKS! HOW CAN YOU SAY YOU'RE IN LOVE?!?!

I KNOW RIGHT? You've know each other for a short time and you're already in love??? Seriously, this isn't Medival times ._. I wish for the same thing too. I wish people would just build up their friendship and maybe realise their feelings for each other. Sure some people start having feelings before but if you try to be at least friends with that person over a long period of time, you'll realise whether your feelings have developed or whether they were there at all.

I get pretty much angry everytime I see a couple who's only known each other for a while and claim they're in love. Shut the fuck up, you don't know what love even feels like. Just thinking about the person is considered maybe a crush but not love. Have you ever thought of how you actually felt whenever you're around that person? Does he or she make you smile the moment you see him or her? Do you have this amazing feeling inside of you? (and more :/)
Or are you just desperate for someone because you're alone?

I know very few couples who were friends before they fell in love. My own parents for example.

Look, anybody who thinks you can't fall in love within two weeks really should go out and fall in love. Love comes in all form it's not impossible, but just really rare. And why shouldn't you catch your fate if you have the chance?

I think those who date for a short period and still say those three little words to each other is also acceptable, maybe they did felt the urge to say that to each other, and probably mean it too. But just because you meant something or felt somethign at some point, doesn't mean you will feel the same later on. I guess that's the problem with so called teenagers nowadays. its not like they don't know what they are feeling but rather they can't keep up with one feeling for one person.

And this thread doesn't have to do with
'falling in love' it's about "I love you"

I love you is much more universal. It's about expressing your feelings, because sometimes when you don't say it out loud, the other may not feel your appreciation because they don't know what you are thinking about (they are not mind readers)

There's a certain tone to say "I love you" for different ways of meaning it.

To friends: "I love you!" the tone is playful

To your partner "I love you" the tone would sound soft and not a hint of laughter in the voice

ehehe....thats what I think anyway

Well if you're Christian, you are taught to love all your neighbours, right? ofcourse it is nearly impossible to do that. But if you care enough about someone to never want them to be hurt and you like to see them happy then that is to love someone. In that perspective, you should love everyone for it is the moral thing to do.

But since we are talking about romantic love, then I do agree that teenagers nowadays do misuse that phrase. After a week of dating teenagers can say "I love you" way too casually. But then again I am a teenager and I do have a boyfriend I say "I love you" to. But the reason why thats different is because he is also my best friend who I fell in love with over a long period of time. Thats how it should be for "love at first sight" is very unlikely.

I think in order to love someone romantically you must go through the process of falling in love. Not just "oh hey lets hookup and go out" and then suddenly love eachother.

I would say no. Never. Because there is absolutely nothing wrong with loving.
