    did he freeze up?

    did he return the compliment?

    did he say the same to you a few days later?

    He said it on our second date. We were seeing each other for a long time, but I told him not to say it. It was WAY too early and we weren't even official yet. 8 months later, we're still together. icon_cool.gif

    He said it first after 3 months dating and I said it back to him the next day. To me it was way too early even though I had thos efeelings. Still I don't regret it and sure I will be saying it a lot more for a long time!

    My bf said "I love you" like on the 2nd or 3rd date, some time ridiculously early. I just pretended I didn't hear it. Eventually I came around and said it back to him and that was 8 years ago. We're still together. icon_biggrin.gif

    He said it first. 6 months in. He was crying because he was laid off, had to go back to work so he'd no longer see me freely, our best friends had moved that same day to Florida and it hit him that things were going to change.

    All I said was, "I know, I love you too." kissed him and held him.

    He said it first while we were in San Antonio together on the riverwalk... I guess we had been dating for about 5 months. I said it back immediately.

    I've never uttered those words, nor have I had them said to me. It's not as tragic as it sounds.

    I've never said it and I always give a blank stare. If they say it again, I put it down. I don't like liars and lets face it... That's a very mature thing and I don't think even at 25 I know life well enough to know something like that. If there even is something like that. icon_neutral.gif

    First Bf:

    He said it first. And when I said it back, his response was, "Don't say unless you mean it." *confused/hurt mode activated*

    Second Bf:

    We refrained from saying it until I broke up with him. That's when he told me. I said nothing back.

    In my six year relationship, he said "I love you" during the 2nd time we had sex. Although I thought it was a bit early, I just said it back without thinking about it too much. Good thing I did because I think he was the one I loved the most.

    In one of my four month relationship, we stayed up late one night talking about "I love you's" after 2 months being together. Then we decided it was OK to say it lol. It was very business like.

    In my previous three month relationship, I said it after 3 weeks and he never said it back. Turns out he never loved me. I think I liked him the least because at least my other bf's actually loved me. There's nothing worse than dating someone who's closed up and won't open up in my opinion. No pain, no gain.

    Agreed. Give love a chance. I did once and I'm glad I got to experience it from my late teens to my mid 20's. I know that I truly loved because I was ready to give up everything and even die for this guy. The feelings were reciprocated.

    We all experience it at a different age I guess but the point is give love a chance. As much as it has the potential to hurt you like something you've never felt later on, when you look back afterwards, you won't regret it that you once truly loved.

    Last time I said it, the words felt great coming out of my mouth b/c it was how I felt. It didn't matter that I didn't hear it back. I felt it!

    It's been 6 months, but I heard the words back. This time, I didn't know what to say. We're in different places now. Funny how love is still there, but changes into something else.

    It wasn't tragic to begin with :p

    A guy once said it to me on a first date, but he said it in Arabic so it was kind of cute.

    He actually said it first but he muttered it, hoping I would call him out on it... I didn't, though it made me so happy to know.

    The next day we were having a talk just laying on the couch and we said it icon_smile.gif

    Now I say it whenever I hang up the phone, say goodbye, when he leaves or I leave, because that's one of many ways I express it, and you never know if you'll get another chance.

    My BF said it to me one night we were hanging out, it was two or three months in. It went something like this:

    IThe setting: In the living room standing face to face as I was getting ready to leave and I saw something in his eyes.

    Me: "Oh no...I know that look."
    Him: "Yeah, I have something to tell you."
    Me: "Don't say it, it's too early and I'm not going to say it back."
    Him: "I'm gonna say it and it's ok if you don't say it back."
    Me: "Just don't."
    Him: "I'm going to. I love you."
    Me: Dropping my head I say "Damn It, you said."
    Him: "I sure did. I love you."
    Me: Looking into his eyes, I kiss him. "Told you I wasn't going to say it."
    Him: "I know, and that's ok because I'm going to make you fall in love with me."
    Me: "Bet's on."

    I ended up saying "I Love You" about two months later one morning he stayed with me and he said something to make me laugh as i had my head on his chest and I raise my and said, "Oh babe, I love you" then i kissed him and he said, "told you I would make you fall in love with me."

    We have been together for 10 months now and I still love my dork.

    I accidentally said it when I was excited, and probably way too soon like 2 months into dating him. But, the feelings were there. I have an easy time saying it because I recognize the feeling but I'm not sure he does, (first long term boyfriend).
