Those aren't words people just randomly say to anyone...usually. Seems like after having your heart broken by someone who you were madly, deeply, utterly & truly in love with...you have trouble saying those words to someone else, because after that person, you haven't found anyone suitable to say it to. Someone of the same caliber, the same level of attraction, both mental and physical, and you just can't get past the 'i like you' or 'i like you a lot and want to be with you' stage. That 'I love you' just won't come out. Does anyone else have the same issue?
