…say I love you?
and how do you feel about how often he/she says it?
My FI probably tells me once every 2-3 weeks. Sometimes I wish he said it more, especially when I see couples saying it daily. But then when he does say it, it is always so nice, and hes obviously been thinking about a nice moment to tell me.
Just interested to see if there is a ‘norm’!

Every day. Sometimes more than once a day.

We say it every time we get off of the phone or leave each other and before we go to bed.

My personal preference is not to “water down” those words. So we say it when we mean it. Not just all the time, even if we always feel it. For me, it always means so much more when i hear it because of this.

We say it multi times a day. After we get off phone, leave, etc, We both randomly say it through the day also. I’m not sure why, my family was like that so I think that’s where I get it from. It’s always nice to get the random out of the blue I love you though.

If you want to hear it more, just gently tell him so. Men are not subtle creatures and often don’t even realize when you’re bothered by something like this. I bet if you mention how much you love hearing it and that you really want to hear it more often, he’ll oblige!

more than once a day. Both of us.
It never gets old.

Everytime we hang up the phone. When we are saying goodbye to each other. Random times just because. Sometimes because we didn’t hear what the other person said so we just assume it was “I love you”…. over 5 times a day, easily. I am always afraid something will happen to one of us so it is always our last words when ending a conversation (paranoid much?).

We say it a lot because we mean it a lot! A totally mundane phone call about stopping to pick up milk turns into a private little moment with a simple, “I love you.” It’s not like we’re trying to make a moment, it just feels that way. I don’t think you can say it too much. When I was a kid, we didn’t go to bed or get off the phone without our parents telling us they loved us, too.

We say it before bed, when we leave each other, when we are intimate ;), and whenever else we feel like it. We make sure we show each other love more than we say it.

We usually tell each other “I love you” several times a day.
OP, how do you feel about how often your FI says this to you?
