    Neither. It means they like her, but don't love her (yet...)

    I would say that it actually didn't mean either of the two options- I would say that it definitiely does not mean that they feel sorry for her...I would say it means more that they do have (strong?) feelings for her, but they don't know if its love- it is a huge thing to say that you love someone. but i would say that it is a very posisitve thing. perhaps if you gave more details on the situation it would be easier to help you figure it out.

    well.....basically the woman suffers from illness where she gets very sick when stressed/upset etc.....which is y this guy is not splitting up with her cos he feels responsible. he's tried leaving her, but her whole life depends on him. but he claims his love 4 me is true.

    but he calls her his 'wife' although obviously they're not married, so there must be some sort of love involved whether its pitying her or not. and they are/were friends before they got into this relationship

    It depends on the person. It could mean one of two things:

    a) I'm too embaressed to admit that I love them.
    b) I don't love them but I like them as a mate and don't want to hurt their feelings.

    I doubt that it means that they feel sorry for her

    In that context it means they have feelings, maybe not neccessarily as strong as love. I mean if you ask someone if they love someone usually the simplest response is 'I have feelings for them'.... in a different context it might be taken as a sign of sympathy, but in this context there only seems to be one response

    seems like hes trying to have his cake and eat it too, he's committed to this other woman but is still carrying on with you? Be careful, this may not be the case but it seems like he doesnt want to make a commitment to you and so is making excuses. hope it works out!
