They say that love is the unofficial currency of this universe. Not sure about other universes and galaxies out there. But on this planet that we call Earth, love has a lot of merit. Well, love can also be a bit dangerous because it’ll make you do things you’ve never done before and say things you’ve never said before. Which does sound a bit frightening. However, that isn’t really as scary as five killer clowns and four cursed dolls chasing after you in a century-old haunted mansion. So even if love is like this sharp drawing pin that bursts your bubble, that might not be too bad of a feeling, emotion, or whatever you want to call it. After all, everybody deserves to feel love and be loved and not get chased by nightmarish creatures in a creaky and possibly termite-infested place.

When it comes to love, there is always this phrase that people like to say, no matter the time and place. What is this expression you may ask? Oh, it’s just the simple English phrase known as “I love you.” This three-word sentence can also be said in different languages like French. In French, there are many ways to profess your love. Let me show you the ways.
