It's funny, but I can say "I Love You" so easily to friends, but when it comes to family and the person I'm seeing. I can't seem to open my mouth and say it. Anyone have an idea of what the reason is for that?

Interesting answer, Amy. I hear it on occasion from family and then in turn I say it back. I never tell my family without them saying it first. Also now the guy I'm seeing says "I love you" and I have this grand fear of saying it back... ??? *crazy*
Maybe their is some "superstition" involved if you have had a negative experience in the past. I have a thing about not saying anything too soon, as I'm afraid I'll jinx things. I think it may bring you a sense of gut level self-protection.
Saying I love you to friends is easy for me, at least those I really connect with. Some of my friends are as important to me as family. The special someone has said it, but I'm having trouble saying it back. I'm pretty sure of how I feel. *Confused*
CrazedNovelist - When you are not sure about something or feel confused, it's because you are not ready to accept it. When you say "I Love You" it should be written in cement...not in sand.
I know a lot of people like that... it's interesting to analyze the reasoning behind it all.
Yes, It really has made me think.
I'm the same. I've never told a friend that (in fact, I can't even put those words in writing here). I reserve those three words for only the most meaningful relationships; and as much as I care deeply about friends, they aren't in that group.
