This question builds off of another question (Meaning of fck you) but my question pertains to the expression "you love it". Here are three examples of its usage.
1] From Youth in Revolt (Youth in Revolt):
A boy named Nick met his colleague, a girl, in a music shop while purchasing a DVD and after a little talk, her boyfriend hugged her from behind in front of Nick. Then the girl chuckles and says: "Chad, fuck you". He replies — "Oh, fuck you, you love it."
2] From Bender (Bender):
"Shut up baby, you love it"
3] From the game Dragon Age 2 (Dragon Age 2):
Isabela: You know those stains never came out
Aveline: You are horrible, every inch
Isabela: You love it big girl, and you owe me for the bottle
This expression, "you love it", seems to be gaining popularity. We've found other occurrences of it in songs. It's also a popular hashtag on Twitter where we see variants such as #YouKnowYouLoveIt and #YouGottaLoveIt. For those who really love to say "you love it", we now have a website at www.uluvit.com.
While its meaning may be obvious to some, its usage patterns seem to have something subtle going on. Can we distinguish the different uses and explain when and how to employ them?
Another interesting question is WHO can use the expression "you love it"? Can anyone use it or is it typically used by a certain type of person, for instance a certain personality type? Or can it only be used between two people with a certain kind of relationship? What are the prerequisites for the relationship in order for one person to be able to say "you love it" to another? Appropriate for a pick up line? Appropriate for a first date? etc.
