    Everyone enjoys being loved!
    The tricky part is not to assume "our definition" of the word "love" is the same as the person that said it. You also should not say you love them back (simply because they said it to you). Honesty is the most important trait in any type of relationship. As rob_allen noted it does make a difference in (who) it is that is expressing their feelings to you!

    Each of us has our own set of "expectations" as to how someone demonstrates or behaves when one is in love.
    Very often we feel if their actions aren't in line with (our definition) of the word "love" then we question whether or not they (really) love us.
    You don't demand or negotiate for love and affection. (These things are given freely) and You can't manufacture chemistry. (It's either there or it's not). The best way to receive love is to accept it without any preconceived ideas and watch it unfold naturally!

    It depends who said I love you to me. If that is another guy, i would be terrified. If that's my girlfriend or any of may family members, that would be great. smile

    Depends on my feelings toward them, and who they are in my life.

    When someone loves you its not always nessesary for the words I LOVE YOU   to be spoken...its a feeling that can be felt without the words being actually spoken...if he / she loves you  ,you will know .

    However it is special to hear those words whispered in your ear...im still waiting !!

    Before, my brain races with all kinds of questions and doubts. Nowadays, I say, "Thank you". But it is still wonderful and pleasing to hear it..

    With the emphasis of "I Love You" from your pic, it is presented in a big way. OK, I'm an og=old guy. I have had some great relationships and some bad. The point being saying "I Love You" was a common thread with them all.

    Finally, an avid reader of C.S. Lewis, I picked up his book "The Four Loves" and read it several times. It explains four types of love - Affection, Friendship, Eros, and Charity.

    From his revealed definitions I realized I could say to a co-worker "I Love You" since we were friends and I was affectionate of her. Yet, the definition of Eros is not fulfilled. And, my degree of sacrifice regarding Charity may not meet a relationship standard.

    At the same time I have male friends, therefore I can say "I Love You" too! but affection and Eros and Charity are not in the picture.

    For me, today, as a single person, and my maturity meaning age - LOL, these may be high standards or then maybe not. I would say before I could emphasize as your picture does that I would like that person to meet all four criteria.

    I think there is vast difference in "being in love" with the attached feelings and "in Love." Maybe it is affection and Eros yet really friendship isn't in the picture. Or any other mix.

    I am  not saying they have to be present at one given moment, yet I believe they have to be present in the sense of the soul, psych, and emotional attachment. Way too long of answer - should I post this - flip the coin - yup , , ,

    I immediately ask why.  I want to know what prompted them to say that in the first place.
