    S/O of When did you say it?

    What did/would you (or your SO) do or say when "I love you" was said and you (or your SO) wasn't ready to say it back?

    DB told me before we even started dating and I told him I wasn't ready and then after maybe 2 months we had an argument and he said "do you know how it feels to love someone who only likes you" it had been bothering him all that time. So I told him I loved him but he was still hurt a little.

    when i was told "i love you" by a guy who i had only been dating for a couple weeks, i totally wasnt ready to say it back. instead i just told him that i really liked him, and that i was happy with the pace we were going at and also that i was excited to see where things would go between us.

    which didnt work because he kept saying he loved me.

    needless to say it only went an extra two weeks after that.

    I told him first. He was leaving for bootcamp about 3 months after we met/started dating, because of that he wanted to keep things fairly casual so he wouldn't be putting me in the position of feeling like I had to wait for him so early in a relationship.

    The conversation went something like:
    Me: "I love you."
    Him: "I thought we agreed this wouldn't be anything serious"
    Me: "I know, but it's the truth and I wanted you to know."
    Him: "I love you so much, I just don't want to hurt you when I leave."
    Me: (I can't remember what I said to him.......)

    So a little awkward, but he smoothed it over so well

    "Missing someone isn't about how long it has been since you've seen them or the amount of time since you've talked.
    It's about that very moment when you find yourself doing something and wishing they were right there by your side."

    Same as my post in the other thread. He was the one who said I love you fully the first time.

    TMI, but the first time DH ever mentioned the words, I was giving him oral. We were still in high school and had just barely started dating. He was like "Oh my GOD I love you" and I just pushed him down and kept going

    About a week later, being the HORRIBLE bitch I was to him during our first few months of dating, I told him that I understood if he loved me, and I was falling in love with him, but that I didn't think we should be saying it to each other yet. It took about another month before I was like "Okay, I love you too"

    No one's ever said it to me...

    My exDB didnt really have a noticeable reaction when I said it, probably because I said it while fighting in a 'I love you, but you're driving me insane with this' kind of way...
    I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go.
    Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right.
    You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.
    And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    I told DH before he was able to tell me back-

    his response was that he cared for me deeply, but was not ready to say I love you to me-

    then he gave me a deep kiss and said " you will be the first one I tell when I figure this all out"
    and about 2 months later I was.
