We took to the streets surrounding The Royal Exchange to ask the City community to share their thoughts on the topic of love. In this special series, we find out #WhatLoveIs to Londoners today.
LIBBY, 65, RETAIL WORKER
“For my 60th birthday, my children took me to Paris for the weekend. I must be the only person in the world who hadn’t been. We walked everywhere and saw everything. It was wonderful and the most loving thing anyone has done for me. I don’t remember the last time I said ‘I love you’. When I hear people ending every conversation with ‘love you’, I don’t think they are properly thinking it. It should only be used when you really mean it. I prefer to show my love in other ways, like showing support to my children. Even now they have children of their own, it doesn’t change – I’ll always support them. Love is having people around you. I’m so happy because that’s what I feel I have from my family and work colleagues to friends I meet at various clubs. Having them in my life makes all the difference.”
