    Of course you can OP, but only if you are in the habit of doing so, otherwise it would feel weird. A lot of people don't tell their parents they love them when inside they do.

    I've added a poll as someone suggested I do. I wonder if they'll be a correlation to do with gender, or something.

    Never said it. It's not that I don't, just that they've never said it and neither have my brother or sister.
    Maybe when I go to uni it'll be said when they drop me off.

    I say it to my boyfriend all the time though :love:

    I'm always saying 'love you' to my parents, and my brothers. I would find it seriously weird not to be able to say 'love you' to one's parents!

    I say it almost everyday to my Dad but I don't live with my Mum so I just don't have the opportunity to - I say it in e-mails though.

    I say it loads during the day
    They say it to me and I like them to know that I love them too. At the end of phone conversations/texts or when I'm going out/they're going out I'll say because I always think if anything happened then I want I love you to be the last thing I said to them
