    Average. I stick to the definition of love, and find it should retain a deep meaning.

    I do stick to using 'love' in the traditional sense most of the time. I say I love my friends (some are guys), because I do. Obviously not in the same way I love my boyfriend, but in a friendly way. I do say "Oh, I love that dress" sometimes, but not very often.

    words are just words. you can express your love to somebody by a look, a smile, a touch...that is more honest I think..:yes:

    Generally loosely. But if I am in a relationship with someone the word "love" for me is a taboo word xD

    I rarely ever say it - in fact I've found it quite hard to say. Sure I'll drop it in casual conversation like 'omg I love your dress' but when I'm telling someone that I love them... well it hasn't come out my mouth yet
    Yeap, same here.

    I think it's the Greek who have like 6 different words for love: one for the romantic sense, another for your favourite thing. Maybe that would be more useful in English!
    And spanish people have two different words for love: "te quiero" and "te amo" both being used to describe different feelings. "Te Amo" is supposed to describe a stronger feeling whilst "te quiero" is more common.

    I use love to describe how I feel about all my friends, 'Oh, Yusuf, you're an angel, love ya', to as pair of shoes or a pretty view to my mum...
    When I say it to my boyfriend though, he's mature and aware enough to know that it means something different.

    I feel this way...but my girlfriend says it all the time.

    I've tried to get over it, among other things, and I have so far semi-succeeded.
    Because I know if I were ever to say "I love you" to another girl, my girlfriend would be depressed/frustrated.
