"I love you"/"I luv ya"

Just wondering - do you think there's a difference in meaning when somone says "I love you," as opposed to "I luv ya?"

Explain your reasons here - and thanks!

If you recall the movie, "Ghost", Sam couldn't say "I love you" back. He always said "Ditto." to Molly. Saying the three simple words, "I love you." can be so hard for a person to say.

I remember that.. I love that movie!

I think all meanings are the same except expressing saying it with your own comfort. Love is Luv.

Amen to that.... I have a very, very hard time saying that 7 lettered sentence. It really has to be at the right moment, and meaningful. I've had a few guys say that to me, and I look shell-shocked when I hear that -- and it takes a long time for me to actually say that. Instead before I can do it, I might go "Luv ya" it's more casual, I suppose. And friends say that to friends, don't they? Other times, I go "ditto" -- yup, just like Sam.

For some reason, "love" is a very powerful word for me. My heart flutters or skip a beat whenever I hear it mentioned to me. Even from family members. When the ILY sign shown by friends and others at me, you might notice that I freeze for a moment and then grin/smile back.

Maybe I suffer from some anxiety when it comes to "mushy" stuff. Even some of my friends and those who have gotten to know me really well (those I dated for awhile/close to) laugh about it, knowing how bashful I get.

i say yes it does mean different things

"luv" is like others have said -- casual while the word "love" is something with meaning, emotions and etc -- i use the word "love" for my honey ofc along with close friends of mine who ive known for a long time while i use "luv" for material things or ppl who i know as acquaintences and feel comfy saying luv them -- i think it all depends on each individual and their perceptions and use of either word

I s'pose it could be seven too...(I luv you), Or eight for (I love you). Or three (ILY) or not even spoken at all! Or it can be numbers - 143?

Interesting, eh?

I used to say 831 to my friends when we had alphanumeric pagers... Sometimes I think I did say 731 by accident too. Dang.

8 = letters, 3 = words, 1= one meaning.

Well, for me is a beautiful word to saying...
"I love you"...

"I luv ya" sound bit "rough" word...

We texted each other with short message with cell mobile phone ILY... or luvxxx

I think itīs difference between I love you & I luv ya...

I vote yes...

I think it depends on how and when it's said. I've had a bunch of women say "I love ya!" That's only a friendly "love" that they are just saying since they are close friends of mine. However, when it's my girlfriend... then it would mean something different.

Some interesting replies here...

For me, "love" is a more personal and intimate word, and I rarely use it with that spelling unless I mean it. "Luv," however, is less bold, for lack of a better word. Like some of ya, I use it with acquaintences...folks that I am not 100% familiar with. So yes, it does have more meaning to spell it properly than to spell it, "luv."

Oh yeah...it's been ages since I last saw that movie, 'Ghost' -- that was ONE damn good movie! Tearjerker big time!

BTW, I voted no as I believe they both have the same purpose/meaning. But I do understand others who think love is more intimate whilst luv means casual. It may be right.

My opinion is yes. To me, saying " I love you", has more meaning. People throw around " I love ya" all the time, but when you actually TAKE THE TIME to tell someone you love them, it means more. To me, anyway. But, I've also abbreviated the phrase, too. However, when I REALLY want to get my meaning across, I say it out "long hand".

Oh yes I feel it makes a difference with the variations in ILY. It is hard for me to say the full monty, so I will say ILY or the smiley. I did not grow up in a family that regularly said this to each other. Love ya! So it has MORE of an impact on me when somebody tells me I love you instead of Luv ya, and all the cute variations - then I don't know what to say. But oh yes I can agree expressing love is important, and I'm just learning that.

When I wasn't really committed to my husband (then boyfriend) at that time I couldn't even say, "I love you" yet. Instead I said, "luv ya, too." Eventually I grew to love and being in love with him more then I finally said, "I love you with all my lil' fuzzy heart" hehehe So, saying "I love you" makes it sound much more meaningful.

If we all take a step back and realize how we express ourselves, we would understand that the three simple words can impact a person a lot if you put so much meaning into them. Whether it is simple actions of love such as writing little poems, making your significant other's favourite meal and then holding his/her face into your hands and kissing his/her nose gently. Saying "I love you" with so much strength, you would be so surprised at the impact you make.

I voted ' Yes ' because I feel both of them are different wording

If my boyfriend, Roadrunner said ' I lvu ya ' or ' Ditto ' it makes me feel that his love isn't that real ....

When he used the word ' I Love you ' it makes my heart race wildly in such a pure loving way!...

Voted 'yes', generally I believe it matters even more to a woman when the words 'I love you' is used WITH feelings, etc...although, there are guys that like to 'see and hear' that likewise...(count me as one that likes it done that way)

The variants used, 'I love you, I luv ya, I love ya, I wuv ya....' is applied in different situations and scenarios, for example, sometimes like if I was in a hurry, I may say 'I love ya or I luv ya', yet the feeling of love being expressed is the same when I use 'I love you'...

btw ^Angel^...

I LOVE YOU!!!
