I believe love is a powerful word but can be used in two contexts..
To say "haha yeah but i do love you, you should know that
" to a friend or someone else as a joke is purly harmless fun and im sure thousands of people say it on a daily basis..
But to say "I Love You
" To a partner, means alot to both people involved, as its the "ultimate" way to show feelings.
I tell my partner i love her frequently, but thats soley because of the way i feel about her, i buy her flowers with a note simply saying "i love you" and that means everything to her..
However, back on track, i sent her a text about 20 mins ago saying "hope you have a good night, miss you and love you lots"
