I recently started seeing someone new and we’ve only been together for just over 3 months. We haven’t said it yet, and I don’t think I’m quite there yet (getting close!), but it got me curious about the experiences from the rest of the hive! How long did it take until you knew you loved each other and said it?
I know that timing may have been different from either end, which is why I’ve included an ‘other: please comment’ option 🙂

My dh first said it in my birthday card. It was just shy of our 1 year anniversary.

A couple of weeks, but we actually got together long after we had serious feelings for eachother, so it wasn’t weird at all! We are both the kind of people who won’t wait to say what we feel because of social pressure, and we both knew it before we said it.

Ours was about three weeks to a month in. One of those, I’ve never felt this way before situations.
Although looking back eight years later it does seem really soon

I think it was a little past 3 months. He said it first, and I wasn’t sure if I misheard, so he had to say it multiple times before I realized what he was saying.

We weren’t even dating and had only known each other for a month and a half. Granted, we were sleeping together fairly regularly, but it was unexpected on my part – he said it mid romp, and I said it back later that day after I had time to process. That’s when we started dating.

I guess I hold the record…
My husband and I must be super crazy, it took us FIVE YEARS, lol! 😂
It’s maybe weird, but it actually never felt necessary to put words on our feelings. It wasn’t until he had a brutal motorcycle accident and was put into coma for nine days it happened. They woke him up on our 5 year anniversary and that’s when I told him for the first time that I love him. And he said the same back. The next thing I said was “when this is over, let’s get married”. He agreed and on our 6 year aniversary we got married.

About a month. He said it to me but, I was sleeping and he spent all night thinking he fucked everything up by moving too quickly.

Six months, I voted 6-1yr. When we first got together, I had gotten out of a long term relationship and probably should have waited to get into a new relationship, I would be on and off again about the relationship in the beginning. Because of the instability, he waited to tell me. Either way, it worked out. We’re engaged and coming up on our four year anniversary in a few days!!

Before we even met. My now Darling Husband and I met online and within the week period that we Skype and texted nonstop he said “I love you” and then sorry immediately afterward. I said it back and then we met in person a few days later. Looking back, we moved quickly but it works for us. When you know, you know.

I told him I loved him 3 months after he told me he loved me (wasn’t ready to say it back to him when he originally said it) but I said it probably about 6 months after I started to feel like I was in love with him. Wanted to be as sure as possible.

About a year and a half when I got the nerves to – even then it was through a text message.
I knew I loved him probably about 6 months in.

After about a month and I said it. I could tell he wanted to but was scared so I just came out with it.
