How often do you say "I love you" ?

Yesterday night after I put the girls to sleep, as ordinarily I checked my favourite blogs, and I realised that it was Valentine's day! Alas, I missed it this year too! :) I was never a Valentine's day fan, I have to admit it. And yes, I am totally in love for the last 9 years! Even though I don't celebrate this day, I actually enjoy the red and pink atmosphere around! Besides, I discover many delicious recipes, wonderful outfits and amusing craft/gift ideas around the web! 

Particularly, Cup of Jo shared a thought provoking post about how often/ easy different cultures say "I love you". According to this study, the use of the locution ‘‘I love you’’ fluctuates greatly across cultures. On the whole, each culture has a special way to express their feelings. Indubitably Americans say the words "I love you" easier and more frequently than Chinese (take a look on this survey for more details) , and in fact, Western cultures are far more likely to say the "L" word to their loved ones rather than Asiatic and Japanese (nice article here for Art of Kokuhaku). I say it constantly, I don't think that cheapens it.. I feel awesome when people say it back to me! What about you?

Meanwhile I wish you a wonderful and lovable weekend with some nice links on the web:

  4. I say it constantly-- I think it is important for the ones I love to know that is how I feel about them and never to have doubts….

    1. Avy, your comment struck me so I read some of your recent posts, you write very nice, as if your life was a novel. You are a dreamer, and that's kind of love...and what about Henry?:)

    1. Thank you! I checked your blog and loved your work!

  7. Κι εγώ το λέω συχνά, αλλά δεν το λέω σε πολλούς. Εδώ στην αμερική το love you το έχουν καραμέλα και ναι, τις μισές φορές δεν το εννοούν. Εμείς οι Έλληνες το λέμε πιο δύσκολα. Καλή βδομάδα Γεωργία :)

    1. Είναι αλήθεια! καλή εβδομάδα!!

  8. Nice post!!!
    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

  9. Hopefully soon!

  10. I tell my husband I love him several times a day and I probably tell my twin girls a hundred times a day... I need to talk about my feeling to the people I love.
