That's right being in a relationship doesn't mean you love someone. It's like they say you don't love someone until you live in the same house as them and you're able to put up with all the bull crap they throw at you each and every single day of the week. People just tend to think they "love/like" someone way to often and those three words are also often used too much.
I know right. I've seen so many people nowadays say I love you too often. It's like they overused it too much. I remember when saying I love you was one of the hardest thing to say to someone, but now, it's just a normal thing to say to people.
Don't say I love you to someone because it's what they wanted to hear, but say I love you to them because you mean it and because you really do love them.
