    used to say that you love

    Hi,

    ''You always used to say that you love me but now you don't.''

    Can I say the simple present 'love' or should I use 'loved' in that sentnece?

    Use 'love' if they still love you' and 'loved' if you're not sure.

    I would use loved here because it's clear that the person thinks there is no love.
