What does "I love you to death" really mean?!

What does "I love you to death" really mean?!

The guy I'm seeing said "I love you to death" and I see it often on tv being thrown around

So I'm wondering what does it really mean. Is it that they really like the person alot!?! Or more than this

Update: July 31, 2010.

When you tell someone you "love them to death", I think it means that to your dying day you will profess this love, but do so while still alive.

This phrase has always creeped me out because it sounds like something a stalker would say.

To me " I love you to death " translates into " I'd rather see you dead then with someone else " but that's just my opinion.

Of course I'm SURE that is not what your guy is trying to say and he's just being all romantic n' stuff and is trying to express his genuine love for you!!

This is NOT the right way to advertise yourself girl, if you didn't understand this phrase in YOUR language ( I supposed it's your first language; English) then you can't be *that* girl to deserve someone to love you to death

Yeah, men love to death smart girl who could understand him even before his lips moving!!

It could mean two different things:

1) I love you so much that I can't see my life without you OR
2) a nice way of saying I love you but right now would like to kill you

I've actually used #2 when really frustrated with someone.

It's like saying "to infinity and beyond" LOL. You love them up to the point of your death or their death.

It derives from, "I will love you 'til death do us part." The phraseology represents a commitment of love and devotion. It was never intended to be negative. It represents an everlasting covenant of love and adoration. Over the generations, the word "to" has evolved from the original word "til" and the phrase was also shortened. The contemporary phrase is now used to express sincere love to a significant other, parent, child, friend etc.
