When asked why he uses that term rather than traditional "I love you" his only answer was " a lot of people use that term " I don't really know what to think...
Does anyone else use this term? What do YOU mean when you say it?
In correspondence that my wife does, it's just a simple closing for people who are frequent acquaintances, but not a BFF. A bit more "loving" than "sincerely: or "best regards". It may mean something entirely different to your boyfriend.
I genuinely have no idea, today we kinda use the word love a bit generously. I would personally not take it seriously unless the person actually said I LOVE YOU and was serious about it, they said it like it meant something. That would also be pretty significant to me. A friend, or a boyfriend saying that means a lot. It's like they're going to stick around, petty things won't get in the way of your relationship, you fight for each other and care about each other. It means a lot of things. That's why a texted 'love ya' or 'much love' don't really equate to I LOVE YOU in my opinion.
I say Much Love to friends people I care about but not romantically and aren't the closest to me. Also say Much Love as a comfort when someone is going through a difficult situation. I don't know anyone that says that in place of I Love You.
Also, his reply of Thanks when you text I Love You. I say Thanks or Thank you when a guy says those words to me and I don't feel the same so I can't say tgem to him also I say Thanks, Thank you, I know, OK, I see, Uh huh, etc... Sorry to say this, but I don't think he feels the same way as you do...
You are clearly confused. He has never replied "thank you" when I said I love you. That was just a Google image I chose for my post.
Thank you for the MHO.
Stop making assumptions, he loves you too. He submit be too comfortable saying things a certain way people expect him to. It's his own way. Be happy. Some don't even say that. Some won't unless they're certain and mean it. I use it at times. And it means the same way. Saying the usual ILU can get kind of boring at times. Don't let your insecurities sabotage your relationship.
Just tell him you need to hear him say he loves you.
When I say I love you I mean it completely he is just wondering how you feel and waiting for you to tell him how much
It sounds like he is having a hard time expressing his feelings to you but he does love you
Thanks that's helpful
Man are straightforward when they answer. so, when he said that most people used it. thats why he don’t want it.
sweety, don’t decipher what he means by that “it is what it is”.
I don't understand your reply
He said most people use the term "much love"
To differnt people it can mean differnt things does he act in a way that shows he loves u
He does. I just have never had a guy tell me "much love to you". Guys will normally just tell me "I love you".
It's just bullshit. "much love" is as meaningful as the "sincerely" at the end of a letter. It's just a convention.
The word love is I there calm down it's not that deep
It's all words. Watch what they do, not what they say. For both genders.
Actions mean more than words.
He might just be shy.
Love above the normal allowance and amount.
He is losing interest
Tell him it bothers you
Is he ESL?

Much love is an expression of friendship, respect etc. Its kind of gangster, hip hop, that sort of culture i think, I may be a little off on exactly which culture or sub group this is used by but the point remains the same.
It is similar to saying something like 'respect' in the street / slang vernacular.
He says it instead of I love you because he doesn't get any of the shit that i just talked about and thinks he is being cool and gangster or whatever bullshit by saything that.
The long and the short of it is A your boyfriend can't speak English and B he should be saying I love you too.
