What does it mean when a guy says "I love you" to a female friend, instead of "love ya"?

The person who says it usually just writes to me in text talk, except at the end of our conversations, and when I end the conversation by saying "luv u" or something similar, he says "I love you" back, spelled out completely. Does this mean anything, or am I looking into it too much?

  • Vote A He most likely has feelings for her.
  • Vote B It probably doesn't really mean anything special.
  • Vote C Other (please explain).

  • "I love ya" is more colloquial -used in a casual, chatty sense- whereas "I love you" is a lot more serious.

    Although you may be looking into it too much, if he spells all his other texts properly then I wouldn't worry, however if this is the only thing he spells properly then take note.
