    Do you tell your friends "I love you"?

    Is it all the time, occasionally, rarely or never? Or do you reserve this only for your significant other?

    Yes I do. I would say that I say that occasionally not as much as I would my family. I feel that it is very important that you let your friends and loved ones know how you feel about them. And even though I don't know you, I love you.

    Oh yes, I do. I can't help it.  When I suddenly feel that love for them come over me I normally just say "I do love you".  It isn't all the time, It isn't rarely either...it's just when I can't help it.

    Of course. If you love somebody, you should say it, and often.

    Absolutely.   Some of my friends are very dear to me, and I do love them.   I think life is to short to not let people know how you feel about them, be it a friend, a child, or a lover.

    I do! I normally say it in a cute way, like "Love ya!"

    I agree with others that have answered, that it's important to let people know, whether family, friends, or whomever! =]

    You have no choice but to......as it's inevitable, with all that they do, especially if they go out of their way for you.

    I tell all my friends I love them.  Whenever we say goodbye I say I love you. These 3 words  are something you can't say enough of!

    Only when I'm being goofy...these words are reserved for my significant other for sure. smile

    I do have a few close friends that I say "I love you" to.  One of them is my best friend's husband.  He is like an uncle to me, and my best friend (his wife) died tragically after hitting her head back in January.  I tell him I love him because he needs to hear it.  The words "I love you" are not meant to be romantic only.

    Yes I do. Often. When I'm feeling it, I say it.

    Good question. I used to before I met my ex. Then I stopped and only saved it for her. Now that she left me, I only use it for one other friend, and I guess that was because I missed saying it to my girlfriend; I felt like I had to say it to someone or I would lose my mind. Strange, sure, but it helped.

    Yes, but only when I really mean it, the word love can be used so much that it becomes meaningless, if we say it to everyone, then no one is special.

    lolss..as for me since i am not a very vocal person, i say "iloveyou" words in actions by being always around them specially the time that they needed me the most..and i say the word in a joking way...hahaha...cos i think it is not the words that really justify how much your friends or loved ones means to you..you gotta let them feel by doing just small things that matters to them..like.texting,talking to them on any means or ways..those little things..than just saying "iloveyou" in an empty word..do it is important that we need to say it, but it doesn't necessary to be like so often.that the word "iloveyou" just become a sort of expression..well, i don;t know but this is just my thing!!!..for instance..when your friend have problem and you and your significant other got problems..you can not just say "iloveyou" but you need to do something about it,in order for the problem to be solved...not everything will be alright and can be alright just by saying "iloveyou" show our appreciation to other forms which are more defining and touching!!! wahahaha

    I have a former girlfriend who still calls and tells me that but it is more or less like at greeting or a salutation.  Love would not allow my plants left in her care to perish or to hear that rumors were spread that were not true and uncalled for.  I agree that the word love should be reserved for those who are significant in your life.

    Yes.  In cards or something like that I say "love you" or "love".  My friends are very special to me, and I want them to know it:)

    I tell my friends all the time. When we greet each other, in conversation and when we depart. I tell my husband at least daily that I love him.  I should work on telling him more often. Even if we are going through a storm and I am right tee hee I tell him I love him. Love never fails. Amen.

    certain very close friends have been with me since early childhood.  It's become quite natural to tell each other we love her, though one in particular always has that door open simply because she is always the first to say it.

    There are three different types of love, the love you feel for your family, the love you feel for the person you want to spend all your time with, and as equal as the other two, the love for your friends. I often tell people I love them, because I do. I know that sometimes when I don't have my family or my significant other one backing me up, I know I can have my friends. My friends are so important to me, that my close ones have a special place in my heart and I love them for it.

    If you love someone you should say it. Often and with meaning. If they are your friend you should love them and they need to know it.
