Love You!

I love you more!

I love you more!

I got a mighty shock last week when someone, as we parted after chatting, sang out “Love you!” in a sort of up and down, bubbly, happy tone. It wasn’t the jollity which alarmed me – that was quite nice, if a little forced – but the proclamation of love. I’d only met the person about four times before, and it takes more than that for me to develop affections for people.  Inwardly I grumbled, what’s wrong with goodbye, but outwardly I smiled sunnily back.

You see, when I am leaving a conversation, I go for a few stock, standard phrases.

It was nice to see you.

It was lovely to see you.

See you soon.

Ta-ra.

Goodbye.

‘Bye.

Text me when you get home! (this one is reserved for the end of nights out with friends, after wine may have been imbibed)

 

Never have I declared, “love you!”

I’m not complaining too much, honestly. The opposite freaks me out more. ”Hate you!” relayed in a sing-song timbre. Now that, would be downright weird.
