"oh, shit" moment

we were talking about music (musician, he play guitar) and he was playing samples of songs that his band covers...actually, they arent bad...it's all about having fun and enjoying the pulses and beats...anyhow, after a while we played a game where he just played a clip of a song and i had to guess the song...lots of classic rock and things like that...

at the end of this, he busts out with those three little words this curious girl cringes to hear...all i could think was "oh, shit"...then.."what the fuck?? are you serious??"...we met where he was playing one night and just talked off and on...we rarely see each other...and our conversations are completely non-sexual...so i asked him about it and he said, "oh, i say that everyone - sometimes i tell my buddies, 'hey, man, i love you, take it easy'"...

...

and this is why i dont find those words all that believable when i hear those words...people fling them about as if saying "hi" and "bye"...which is fine...but then when someone says "i feel this for you"...i cannot help but think "yeah, right, sure...you THINK you feel those things"...

that isnt to say that there arent a handful of people that, when they say them, i know that what they feel is true...and once or twice in my life i felt that flutter within when i heard those words...and once or twice in my life i felt a flutter within when i said those words...

anyhow, musician pipes up..."what, were you thinking 'oh, shit' when i said that?" and he laughed...yeah, pretty much!...

Yuck!

The careless use of such a beautiful word burns me up!

I'm a romantic so i'd never throw those words around and I have trouble understanding those who do.

Love has many meanings. It can mean caring for you, desiring you, yearning for you sexually, all with varying degrees of exclusiveness and sexuality intended. People generally mean what they are saying when they use this word, but do you understand their language?

To me, saying those words to a person has meaning behind them. I may be different talking about your car, or dog, or favorite tv show, but those don't hear those words like a person does. I am very, very careful about saying those words to someone, making completely sure I truly do love them before I utter them or even consider doing so.
