    Why is it so hard to say the words I LOVE YOU?

    Is it because we are not in love with the person?

    Or, simply we Fear Love?

    What is your opinion???

    Love is frequently mistaken for something else... infatuation, lust, an alleviation of loneliness, fear of loneliness... all sorts of things.

    Saying "I love you" is the clincher that seals the I'm-thinking-of-a-future-with-you deal. It's perceived as "the next step" often heavy with implications, just because there is love there doesn't mean a person is ready for all the things that come along with uttering the words.

    More than anything love is often different things to different people, that can lead to a discontinuity of expectations, for people who aren't good at communicating their feelings, this sort of thing can be really scary. That's what I think.

    Why is love so complicated of an emotion?

    Some scientists say it is entirely bio-chemical in nature...

    Others say you can love more than one lover...

    Yet, I can't seem to find the words.
