Ever since FI and I started saying I love you we never hang up the phone without saying it first. FI was really weird about that and now it feels weird if we don’t say it!
Do y’all say I love you everytime before hanging up the phone?

We rarely do. I wish we would more, but it’s not that big of a deal to me that I’m upset about it. I think it’s sweet when couples do, but I don’t think it’s a big deal when they don’t.

Yep! It took me awhile to get into it also (and I come from a family that does this so I don’t know why with a guy it’s different), but now I can’t hang up without telling him. I think I’m afraid that if something happened before I saw him again, I would have missed the chance to tell him.

I’ve noticed a lot of our couple friends never say I love you before hanging up!
Even FI’s coworkers have mentioned something to him about how nice it was for him to say I love you everytime… Thought it was different?

Yes, every time we hang up the phone we say “I love you!”

Everytime we hang up the phone, leave the room, get out of the car, see each other, make dinner… Eh, we say I love you at least 30 times a day, even when we gchat during work (what?). We mean it each time. I had a teacher in school who lost his wife in a freak accident, and his only comfort was his last words to her were I love you. …Morbid, I know, but we think “I love yous” are important.

This was something that FH started. I actually didn’t come from a family that did this, but his family does. I’ve noticed that I’ve started doing it more with my parents as a result. FH says it 98% of the time I’d guess. In the 2% of the time he forgets, he’ll text me. Very sweet and very sincere. How can I not say I love you back to that.

We always say “I love you” before getting off the phone.
Its part of my anxiety issue that if we dont say it something is gonna happen to him. Kinda crazy I know…but having him in combat zones for so long will do that to ya! it takes 2 seconds to do it and makes me feel ALOT better so why not lol. Plus I really do just love him haha 😀

@Mrs. Gremmlin: I kind of think like that. If God, forbid, something should ever happen, I want that kind of comfort. We say I love you before we leave for work, end phone calls, go to bed, random moments!
I can’t ever remember my parents saying I love you to each other, and my dad rarely said it to us kids (not that he didn’t love us….just grew up with nasty parents and doesn’t really feel comfortable expressing emotions).
I don’t want that to be DH and I. I always want him to hear how much I love and appreciate him, so we say it often!

We didn’t at first and actually he was weird about it for a while. So I just stopped doing it and only said it when i really felt like I just couldnt help but say I love you. then one day he goes “is there something wrong? because you always say I love you before we hang up and you havent done that in a long time”..lol. Well there ya go! first he’s weird about it and then when i dont do it he acts like a sad puppy over it. So now we are both open about it and always say I love you when we part, whether its over the phone or in person.

This. And when he’s out of the country for work and I can’t text or call ($$$$$) I send e-mails to his work account.
