Debate of those three words

I’ll be honest.  I’m not someone who demands to hear ‘I love you’ on a regular basis, but even I can appreciate the meaning behind the words.  In fact, ‘I love you’ seems stronger than ‘Love you’, as the second is much more casual, and definitely not as personal feeling as ‘I love you’.  A simple moment with these three words said is special, and despite me saying it a lot myself, it is vital to say it.  Sometimes my boyfriend says something, and I am unable to fathom a response other than to tell him I love him.

But here is the debate…can there ever be a point where you can say it too much?  Does it really matter if you say ‘Love you’ instead of ‘I love you’, and why is it that sometimes saying those three words doesn’t feel enough?  Something I have discovered is that I can’t find the words to express how much I love my boyfriend, and so I am left with those three words, wondering if I should use them sparingly, or should just go ahead and say them when I feel it’s right.  I even Googled to find a word stronger than love, but could only find ‘agape’, a word that still doesn’t feel fitting.

So…where do you stand on the usage of those three words?  Use them sparingly, generously or when you’re feeling it?
