Well, not with the saying it really, but with trying to say it the way I want it to sound. Saying “I love you” seems too simple. I want to say more everytime I say it. I end up saying it multiple times a day just because it doesn’t sound how I want it to sound.
I’ve been making a list of what saying “I love you” means and I plan to give it to FI someday (if I ever get it finished). So far I have:
When I say I love you, I am really saying:
-I want to be with you beyond forever
-I want to take care of you
-I want to have your children
-I want to hold you forever
What are you saying when you say “I love you” to your SO?

Saying “I love you” is not the words I want to hear from you… 😉
(Sorry, this post just got “More Than Words” stuck in my head!)
That’s a sweet list. When I tell FI that I love him, I am usually saying thank you–to him, to the universe, to whatever, and expressing my gratitude that I get to be with such an amazing person.

When I say it I’m saying I appreciate everything you do and everything you are and I’m so lucky to have you in my life!

I am saying that I cherish him and our life together. I am saying that if I have a son who grows up to be exactly like him, then I will consider myself as a parent a success. I’m saying that on the days I want to chuck him out the window, it is more than fear of prison that stops me… 🙂

I haven’t said it, mostly because I don’t want to be first. I’m 99.99999% sure he’d say it back and he feels the same way. But I’m old fashioned and feel like he should go first… But when I do say it, it’ll be “I can’t imagine my life without you, I’m so glad I’ve found you, You’re the most amazing man I’ve ever met, and I want to be the mother of your children.”

(okay i must be majorly pms’g because i’m tearing up here thinking about it)
When I say I love you
You are the man I’ve looked for to complete me
You’re my best friend
I want to make sure your whole life is okay
I want to make sure you never have a sad day
I want to spend the rest of my life figuring out what it is about you that has me in awe
I want to make babies with you
I love ummm practicing to make babies with you
I’m not a religious person but you are so perfectly matched for me and just what I need so I know that God must exist
I intend on spending the rest of my life trying to figure out what it is about you that has me so utterly entertwined in loving you.
