Saying «I LOVE YOU» to a friend?
— I’m not a native English speaker —
WOULD YOU SAY TO A FRIEND “I love you” ? Would you use another expression?
In my native language there are two different expressions:
• one is used when you are referring to your parents, your partner, your wife/husband... and people you truly love;
• the other is usually used for friends and people you care about.
However, they both correspond to “I love you” in English.
Thank you in advance!

Although I'm not a native English speaker myself, I would say ' love ' is stronger than ' like '.
Personally I keep this word for people I really love.
