So the other thread got me thinking... I will only say 'I love you' if I genuinely mean it, so if someone says it to me and I don't actually love them I struggle with how to respond. Eg. MIL says it to me and I really don't love her at all, so I usually just force myself to say it back (so I don't start WW3!) but it feels awful and wrong and dishonest, or I pretend I didn't hear and change the subject :/
How do you respond when someone you don't love says 'I love you'?
