Fainting Couch Feminists Episode Forty-Six: What It Means To Say "I Love You" To Friends

Interview by 
Mica Lemiski

Mica recently interviewed a lot of men about platonic love, and how they feel about saying "I love you" to their friends, and she is here to unpack her findings! Are there differences in how men and women express love to their friends? Sometimes, yes. Does that question assume a binary that is complete bullshit? Yeah, probably. And what exactly is the difference between a flippant "I love you," tossed out at a party, and an emotionally meaningful exchange? All these questions, and more, will be tremendously overthought on this episode!
