The L word

Not the show, cause I don't have Showtime. But this blog entry made me think about how lucky I am to have had a demonstrative family, and as a result to be a loving person with my extended family network (i.e. my friends). But I never say the L word with guys. How do you know when you mean it? I love my friends, and if I date you I must like you well enough to include you in that important circle. But saying the L word to The Guy is so weird; you love him but you don't know if you mean forever. What is forever, anyway? And why make promises you don't know if you can keep? Isn't it enough that I care about you enough to let you into my life, and that I cherish you as a person, and value you so that I will never intentionally hurt you?
