TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Ah, but just as it is possible to not know if you are pregnant, it is also possible to not know if you are in love. And keeping this vaguely on topic, the correlation for TWs is that one must not assume one's readers know if they are in a particular state, even if the only possible conditions are 1 or 0.

however more seriously, on a point of technical communication, the actual
"I think I love you"
now that is not correct. Love is something that has to be complete - the
same as you can't be a little bit pregnant, you are or you are not. You are
either in love or out of love.
