No difference I think.

I always thought actions were the best way to show the love aside from saying it. Little things we do for our SO/Wife/Husband.

I think there is a difference, between I love you and love you. Whoever is saying 'love you' is obviously too afraid of commitment and is not really sure if they love the person, or too afraid to say 'i love you' back

Thanks for this question. I got a good laugh out of it. It is a Larry-David-esque sort of question.

Depends on the person saying it. I don't think you can say that it means one thing or another - it depends on the people involved.

^^Dr. Phil over here.^^

How can you POSSIBLY deduce that and make it FACT?
Just cause you said so?

Love you....I love you.....same thing.
You internet love doctors just swear you know it all.

Silence!

The movie Something's Gotta Give tackles this exact question.

Really? And this is coming from someone who has never been in a relationship!

OP, there is really no difference it's just shorten without the pronoun. Some people say "too" or "back." Same thing. English can be tricky like that.

I didn't think there was a difference. Like I said before I've people say both to thier partner. One of my friends say it to his wife sometimes other times he says I love you. I don't think his wife notices the difference.

To me there is a difference. I don't speak for everyone though but if someone I was interested in used "love you" I wouldn't assume that they love me romantically.

"I love you" is declaring confidently and definitively that YOU love someone... your being, yourself LOVES that person.

"Love you" is something I would say to a friend and it's not as serious, used when someone does me a favor, is being cute or funny..etc. It's something two hoity-toity friends say to eachother when meeting or departing and while giving the double kiss on the cheek.
