- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
And who was the one to say it first?
I think I was the one to say it first to Mr. Bee (totally out of character!) within the first month, but he did tell his friend the day after we met that he had just met the woman he was going to marry… I couldn’t top that.

My Darling Husband said ‘I love you’ first after only 2 months. It took me a month or so after that to be able to say it back!

My Fiance said "I love you" two months into the relationship and it REALLY took my by surprise!

My fiance said it first (after about 4 months or so?), but I was waiting for him to say it b/f I said it!

We were slightly under 3 months but we knew each other for nearly 10 years before we even started dating.

I went home the night after I met Nick at a friend’s party and messaged my closest friend in my sorority house: "I met my husband tonight." She saved the message! I told him I loved him that month, but it took him a month or so longer to say it back.

He said it 3 weeks after our first kiss, but only 10 days after we officially became a couple. I waited another two or three weeks to say it back, and that was quick for me. He said that he was sure he loved me when he took me home to meet his parents, and he told me he did that night.

I was a bit afraid of commitment, so I put decided that the "L" word was reserved only for good snowboarding gear. Fiance was also a little gun-shy, but called me up about 9 months into our relationship to tell me that he loved me. I held out a little longer, but let’s face it, I was smitten!

Darling Husband said it the 2nd or 3rd week of our relationship. I was kind of scared since I just got out of a long-term relationship, but in my heart, I felt he was the One, so I said it back 3 days later.
Sometimes, you just know :o)

I said it first, but right after, he told me that he had been wanting to tell me for awhile and didn’t because he was worried it was too soon. I think we both knew right away that we were "the one" for each other, but we were both hesitant to give in to our feelings.

He said it first, very early in the relationship – maybe after 2 weeks or so. I knew I had strong feelings for him, but I didn’t say the big three words until a little while later… I was 18, about to leave for college, and hadn’t intended to enter school with any strings attached. I was conflicted and had never been in love before, so I wasn’t quite ready to take the dive those words entailed.

My Fiance said it first. I was completely floored, and actually worried that I misheard him.
I said it back the following day. I wasn’t sure how to vote in the poll. We had only been "officially dating" for about a month. Before that we were talking every day and going on casual dates for about a month!

My husband said it first… after one week of dating. I know that is SO fast, but we both felt the same way. We also both felt like that was the night we knew we were "the one" for each other and would get married one day.
