There was a popular song when I was in school about what you would do if you COULDN'T use that word.
My opinion is that people use the word too easily.
If you really want to impress someone with your love-show them.
Think of LOVE as a verb-instead of a noun.
A verb, a verb and action word......
Instead of worrying about SAYING how you feel;
figure out the actions that would express it.
"Love As Thou Wilt"
