Too many people say "I love you" when they mean "I like you."
There was nothing I was more tired of than myself.
I tried to sit in the back of class.

Especially between two friends, where romantic attraction is a possiblity, both people should know that nothing they say is meaningless. Too often one of them is oblivious to the other's shimmering gaze.
When we first met she said I was amazing.
We fell asleep talking on the phone.
She'd whisper I love you
There are two possible results of saying "I love you" when you mean "I like you:"
At best: the meaning of "three most beautiful words in the whole universe" is cheapened.
At worse: someone's heart breaks.
I brought her a white rose and left it on her desk.
She had forgotten what that meant.
I knew she'd throw it out.
Believe me, I know this from personal experience.
I told myself I was righteous and angry.
I kept the flower on my desk.
Water wouldn't help it.
