10 alternatives to “I love you”
Person 1: I love you.
Person 2: I can’t do this. I am not ready
Person 1: I love you
Person 2: Too late. I waited for too long to hear these words.
Person 1:I love you
Person 2: Oh my god me too!
Person 1: Let’s get married.
Person 2: Hold your horses. I love you but getting married is different.
These three words carry weight and meaning especially in romantic situations. Arguably, they mean different things to different people.
I: Me, my body, my mind, my soul, my heart, my ego, who I think I am. Wait who am I? Who knows?
Love: Impossible to define, but something around caring, attaching, addiction, accepting someone, can be healthy or unhealthy. Who knows?
You: Your body, what I project on you, the fantasies I have about you, how you make me feel, your personality, your being, your presence, your values. Who knows?
