my mother told me there were three questions to ask yourself before you say i love you:
1) would you starve so they could eat?
2) would you kill for them?
3) would you die for them?
i seriously think thats like a mother's love, not just... love lol i heard it's just romantic feelings towards someone too. my parents aren't exactly big on me dating. maybe she was just saying things to make me put it off? i believe there is a difference in being in love and loving someone. i love a bunch of people, but i dont think im in love with anyone. there are people that make me happy when i talk to them, but i dont think thats love...
i guess i have a lotta questions: how do you know when you're in love? is love overrated? when do you say ily? thanks!

This is nonsense. If you love a person, tell them! Why is it so easy to say I love ice cream or coffee, but you can't say it to a person you have feelings for?
It seems like women have destroyed the meaning of the word and made it into a technical status mark, in which you can't use it until a list of requirements have been fulfilled... If I love her and saying it bothers her because her list shows a few check marks missing, its not a real relationship in my opinion.1

I say "I love you" when I feel it. No one else can tell you what your emotions are, and you can never be wrong. Even if the person turns out no to be he one, you can always recover from it. Don't be afraid to shower other people with love, as long as you feel hey deserve your love.0
