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
statement:

"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.
