“I Love You” vs. “Love Ya”

I was listening to a local radio station the other day and they were talking about the difference between I Love You and Love Ya. What a heated conversation.
It got me thinking though. IS there a difference between the two? I personally think there is. I mean let take a look shall we?
***THESE ARE MY THOUGHTS ON THIS TOPIC PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SAY WHAT YOU WANT BUT LETS BE NICE ABOUT IT MMMMKAY?***
I LOVE YOU
To me is something special. It’s a special bond between two people. Husband and Wife. Mother and Child. Father and child. Boyfriend and Girlfriend. It’s a intimate term of endearment that is not to be thrown around lightly. Think about it do you go around telling everyone and anyone I Love You I know I don’t. To me I Love You is a true expression of your heart and soul. It should never be used lightly. I Love You is a form of commitment if you ask me. 
I Love You also seem to be the three hardest words to say in the English language.
LOVE YA

To me this is a term that friends will say to each other. I know when I get off the phone with my friends I will say Love Ya! to them. I don’t tell them I Love You to me it is just not right. Now don’t get me wrong I do LOVE my friends but not in a intimate way. Ya know? 
To me Love Ya is a term that people use almost as a joke for lack of a better word. It’s like when someone does something stupid they will throw in a Love Ya at the end to make you think that they were just messing around or to let you know that they weren’t being mean or anything like that. 
I also feel like Love Ya is a term that guys will tend to use in a way to not commit to someone. 
With that said do YOU think there is a difference between I Love You and Love Ya?

    To me i personally think there is a difference. I only say “i love you” to my husband, kids, family and of course my best friend of 12 yrs.

    i only say “I love ya” to my friends.

    Totally agree. Love ya is for anyone. It’s just not, complete. I Love You is special. And should be reserved for special people.

    There better be a difference between the two because the other day I had a client tell me “Love ya” as he ended a phone conversation (client as in attorney – client, not The Client List – client)
