Is The 'L Word' Losing Significance? Love in a Time of Familiarity‘I love you.’

Those three words, in my opinion, used to hold a certain amount of weight when expressed. And while many may have different conceptions of what love is, I tend to presume that when it’s said, it’s conveyed with purity, with personal truth.

However, these days, I hear this sentiment spoken between people so often and so readily that I wonder if the ‘L word’ is becoming as casual and standard as ‘hey, how are you?’

Which made me wonder, “Is the ‘L Word’ losing its significance?”
