    I voted one month. It may have been a little less than that, but certainly no longer!

    Less than a week, and it was completely serious. BF was my best friend since the beginning of high school and we were so used to saying it. He was one of those terrible people that asked me to be his girlfriend over text (after we went to the movies together, 10 minutes after he left! what!?), and said I’m his best friend, and he’s tired of seeing other guys eyeing the girl he loves 🙂

    We said “I love you” two weeks into being officially together, and about 2 months after meeting each other. He said it first one night when we were hanging up – he did have some “liquid luck” behind it, but quickly texted me to say that he still meant it. I said it back about a week later, after taking time to make sure I felt the same and wasn’t just parroting for the sake of saying it.

    It was 6 months, but that was because we were long distance, and I wanted to say it in person the first time.

    We also dated in high school, so when we got back together when I was a freshman in college, we said it one night while we were Skyping before we were even officially a couple.

    My FI and I went on our first date exactly one week after meeting each other.  Then about a week after our first date he said, “I love you.”  So it was about 2 weeks for us 😉

    about 1.5 months in. He said it first.

    About 2 weeks after we met. We were inseparable from day 1, and were engaged 5 months later. I had never meant “I love you” more.

    We first said I love you within a week of becoming official. But to be fair, we might as well have been a couple for a month beforehand. I still voted less than a month, though.

    This is going to shock some people, but 5 years. He had difficulty with the “L” word, but I knew he loved me. Actions speak louder than words. I can’t even fathom a few months. I know it’s common, but while I knew when I started falling in love with him ( just a few weeks into the relationship ), I wasn’t ready to say it for a year. In the 5 years leading up to the L word, we had our own phrases to express our feelings. Sometimes I miss them.

    I probably did it about 4-5 months in, maybe earlier.  I’m the type that falls hard and fast, very very quickly.


    He….had issues with the L word and would almost never say it. I think in 4.5 years I remember him saying it maybe 4-5 times.  


    Now he says it all the time.  Its like he’s making up for all those years he never could say it! LOLOL!   


    I certainly don’t mind!!!
