I get what you’re saying but to a certain extent words can be just as powerful as your actions. See if a stranger I don’t know like you, tells me they love me of course I wouldn’t believe it, but hearing it from someone you have been romantically involved with for a while, and they’re not saying it with a sneaky motive in mind and they said it because that’s genuinely what they felt in that moment, I would say words are just as meaningful in a situation like that. It’s not that people can say anything and not back it up with their actions but it’s that, you say things because sometimes you don’t know how to show how you feel so you let your mouth do the work. Just like with song writers. They turn what they have been through and what they feel into words. So words can be just a powerful as actions.
I've read a text with those three words from someone I was with for thirteen years.I've heard those three words from the same person the very same day I got the text.The very next day ... I realised those three words meant nothing as I found out everything she had done which for sure aren't the actions of someone who says they love you.Like I said, words mean nothing, actions do.
That’s only your situation though. You can’t generalize that words mean nothing because of your one bad situation.
Mr Man says to you in a text "I fucking hate you. Meet me on the beach at 8PM"You go to the beach at 8PM. Mr Man is there and says to you "Glad you could make it. I really fucking hate you even more now that you're here!"He then gets down on one knee and proposes to you.

I guess that’s true. With my boyfriend, a few months ago I was going through a rough patch and I wasn’t really texting or calling him like I usually do. I just had completely fallen back from him and others but he was the only one that attempted conversation and continued to check on me regardless of me not replying or initiating conversation anymore. He was still very comforting and because of that one day after he texted me saying he hoped I started to feel better, it just touched me that he cared about me that much that he even dismissed me being dismissive toward him. Most people would be petty and say “If you don’t text me back I won’t text you.” Etc but he wasn’t like that so I had randomly texted him telling that I loved him because at that moment that’s what I really felt. Still do. I had really appreciated him for that.
He deserved the appreciation.

I don't know. It jut feels like in person is more authentic than a text but then again, the text and when and how they texted it and the exact moment and reason they texted it can make it just as genuine as well I guess.
I don’t disagree.
