  • I don't think there is anything wrong with it, it's better than saying "go to hell" throughout the day!

  • I think express it is sometimes better then saying it because a phase like that can't be use loosely if you saying it with every breathe.

  • My hubby isn't home half the week, so whenever he calls he always ends it with 'I love you.' I think the only way it loses it's meaning is when the person saying it lets it. My husband never says it without me being able to tell he truly means it. I also think that just saying 'I love you' is all that's needed. Actions speak louder than words. Even so, I still like the fact that he tells me verbally that he loves me several times a day.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it. Sometimes it is nice to have the reminder, when you are running through your hectic day those three words can bring you back down to Earth and you remember why you are doing what you are doing.

  • DH and I say it often but not as just a "eh" phrase. We actually look at each other every single time in the eyes and kiss ... We find it as a devotion to each other. Others find it rather over the top but then again we are very happily married and to hear it, for us, is a confirmation of our true feelings! =)

  • I think that some people can take it too far and it can become a habit. My husband and I were like that... It became a habit to say "I love you," instead of really meaning something (we were having serious problems). Now, we've recently gotten back together (pretty much the day of or the day before our 3rd anniversary in October) and we say it maybe once or twice a day at most. I'm hesitant about saying it because of how long we were apart and the fact that I only want to say it when I REALLY feel like saying it. I don't want it to become routine again (walking out the door, "Love you," going to bed, "Love you," etc.). I think that so long as it's meant every time it's said, it's a good thing to say it regularly/often.

  • Well IMO you can say it so much that it loses its meaning. IMO actions means much more.
