So, why are people afraid to say I love you? Why is saying I love you so hard to say and what are the implications in saying them? There is little doubt that even saying “I love you” out loud to yourself in the mirror can give you a strange sensation. They are powerful words and saying them can either make or break a relationship.
A report at studiocity.patch.com breaks it down and gives you an insight into why saying I love you is hard for people. This is something you might need to take a look at if you were planning to tell that special someone how much you really think of them.
Okay, you might be saying that you hear people say “love you” or “love ya” all the time especially when saying goodbye. That’s fine and it’s different to what we are talking about today.
When you add the word “I” to the equation it suddenly presents a whole different scenario. The report at studiocity.patch.com says saying I Love You can suddenly mean:
The truth is, it’s like playing “Russian Roulette”. Telling someone I love you for the first time can either draw them closer or send them “running for the cover” away from you.

The big three are the only combination of words in the English or any language that carry an enormous amount of credence and import. They have so much command that just the thought of speaking them can cause extensive anxiety and apprehension. You may even find yourself tongue tied or breaking out in a sweat…..

I must admit, despite being a romantic I get a little uncomfortable when I hear the three magic words. That’s just me. Perhaps it goes back to a time when I heard or said the words and had a bad experience and that’s something that has me a little terrified to mess around with them again but I admit I am getting better.
What is your greatest fear in telling someone I love you? Is it rejection? Have you been rejected in the past? We’d “love” to hear your story.
