Is "i Miss You" The Same As "i Love You"?

A lady colleague at work travelled home for two weeks. When she came back, everybody welcomed her back warmly. On my own part, I playfully told her i missed her. Though we used to share jokes and generally gist before, now she hangs around me and sends me text messages. Its seems obvious to me that she assumed that i toasted he by saying i missed her. Please what do i do now? I don't really "miss " her like that!

It's left for you to save it or sever it. In your heart of hearts you know what you want. If you don't want such affair tell her or better still let your actions tell her.

Dude you are right. I had a similar experience while having extra mural class for JAMB. I don't even talk to the girl. But one eveing after classes she was sitting alone by the gate as I was leaving (maybe she set a trap for me, who knows). So I just asked her nicely if she was okay, why is she alone there, is there any problem. That was how I detonated a hidden BOMB. The rest is history.

hmm,

let me ask you this question

how exactly did you say it?

offhandedly, or with all intents and purpose

because i can relate to a lady responding to such a statement, you also dint say much about what level your smsing had reached

Goodness Gracious! Why in the world would she assume I miss you means you are interested in her?

Some women sure know how to set themselves up, don't they? After they will be boo-hooing all over the place about being led on, broken hearts and whatnots.

Sad.

When you miss someone you miss the presence of the person

when you love someone you you love the personality of the person

Just because she's hanging around you doesnt mean she thinks you "love" her.

I Miss You means 'I Miss You'

I Love You means 'I Love You'

No way similar.

Yorubas say "pele l'ako o ni abo" ( Meaning = even an apology can be tendered in a harsh as well as a repentant manner).

How did you say your "I miss you"? was it in private? was it to everybody's hearing or was it something that sounded like you reseved it for a special moment? Did you say it while you gave her a hug? the questions can go on and on but think about it. It takes two to tango.

Women are easily led on, by what they hear, most especially if they have inherent feelings for you.

It is best you tell her, it was just an ordinary simple show of gesture. Nothing more to it.

Dude I have no idea how to get you out of this. just dont respond to her text messages and avoid her at the office until she gets the hint or create a girlfriend.

Better yet now that i think of it you will have to get one of your female friends to pretend to be your girlfriend that will make her dissappear quick.

She's your secret admirer. You unlocked the gate when you said that. You need a mai-guard to check her access through the gate.

"I miss you" is not the same as "i love you".

Your topic title does not relate to your question. Anyway i guess she felt you where flirting with her, so correct it if you dont really like her. and i miss you if definitely not thesame thing as i love you. next time say "we all missed you" if you feel you must talk too.
