Consider rather, I have decided to love you. That, or I discovered/ realized that I love you.
Oh! So have you?
I think those work, red. They're much, much appropriate than what I came up with. But what can I say? I have a habit of torturing myself with all these weird questions.No, I haven't, Incursionist. :)
I don't think it has anything to do with propriety.PS. I have been "away" for a very long time. Drop me a line and let me know how you've been?
The distancing language (which may be considered hedging) would only become a concern if it were written in the passive voice, as in: "it has been decided that I love you" or "it has been decided that you are being loved"
