The word 'love' gets used often and frequently with the best of intentions, but the map is not the territory. The word. through so much usage, has ceased to be the vibration.
There is a time though, when the word is still the vibration. When one uses their throat chakra to speak the authority of the truth of their inner being, when that is what is going on, the word 'love' still carries the vibration.
There are many who speak with the authority of their being who will not use the word 'love' often. They are doing something more significant though. They are being love, the essence of love, which is a vibration. The closest language I could put to what that vibration is about is inclusion. What is being included, is being loved. It is that simple.
Love existed before people did. Now there is something to ponder. Love was what birthed all that is, and we have not always been here in human form.
There is a magic and a mystery to what love is and how it manifests. It will never ever be capturable in language. Never. It cannot be reduced to language. But it is always known and recognized.
I am not saying don't tell someone you love them. No problem there. Just make sure you are feeling it when you do.
