How often do you and your SO tell each other you love them?
I was thinking about it last night and realized just how much we tell each other we love each other in the length of a day. I would say at least 10 times a day. Whenever we get off the phone and when we separate from each other we ALWAYS say it.

I voted 6-10 because I would guess between 8-10 times per day.
Every time we get off the phone or say goodbye, plus other times when we just feel like saying it.

We’re constantly telling each other “I love you”. I think it would be closer to 50 times a day than anything else.

We fall into the 1-5 range. We both love each other dearly but we’re not the type to remind each other every hour. We’d probably annoy each other if we did. If a man told me he loved 20 times a day I’d probably be put off, in all honesty. I think Fiance would probably do the same. I guess that’s probably why it works. Each couple had their own style.

Haha, we use two different languages to say “I love you” (became a habit while I was taking a language class in college). So probably 8-10 times in English, plus maybe 4 or 5 in our secret language :-). Every now and then one of us will say it sort of absentmindedly and then again a minute later in whichever language we didn’t use the first time, which is really funny if you catch yourself doing it.

I think if you say it dozens of times every day it begins to lose it’s meaning and starts to feel just like a habit or a way to begin and end conversations. I say it when I feel it and when I mean it not just as a random conversation filler. If we spend all day together we might get to a dozen, but it’s usually 1-5.

1-5. I think saying it all te time after every sentence takes the meaning away from it. I say it in especially intimate moments throughout the day when he knows i’m really meaning it.

i say it a bit more now maybe since FH and I only communicate via skype, email text and occassionally a phone call.
I always want my parting words to him to be I love you until hes home again.

I like saying it , but I more so love to show it! I like to make him feel my love ( don’t take that the wrong way lol)
Usually when saying good bye or a really intimate moment.

@Oneeleven:I always want my parting words to him to be I love you until hes home again.
That’s a good point. I totally agree with that.
When you’re together and in front of other people it can get really irritating (speaking as one who’s been on the other side). When you’re alone, let yourself go, but keep the mushiness to nicely sized marshmallow portions around others.

I voted 1 to 5 because that’s what we normally do. Because of my FI’s job, I rarely talk to him during the day of the workweek. We say it when we get off the phone, when we leave for work in the morning and then randomly.

We say it whenever we separate or get off the phone. I think it’s great to hear it often.
