Are we a bit too casual with saying "I love you"? Watch

I wonder if anyone else feels the same way but, I feel like my casual, natural use of "I love you" has become a bad habit. When I'm leaving the house, every time I hang up the phone the list is endless 😂

Of course I do say "I love you" with sincerity, to those important in my life. My parents for instance.

I say these 3 strong words subconsciously most of the time, sometimes accidental. If a loved one says "love you" I mirror it instantly.

Have these 3 full words lost its real romantic meaning now that its an accepted form of true affection among friends etc?

This has always been a thought I can never come to conclusions with

not me personally, I've only told my parents I love them, and only occasionally. I think the words have become meaningless, better to show w actions

I don't say it to human pals.
Sometimes to german shepherd dogs and guard rottweilers.

no. love can mean different things; i think it can be used for platonic and romantic love.

nah, people have a lot of genuine love that manifests in different ways, and i think it's nice if they express that as often as they feel the need to

Expressing love though words has lowkey lost value and almost taken for granted by some
