Wow… I didn’t realize daily was the norm. Then again we don’t text throughout the day either. I don’t think we’re a couple that needs to say it a lot. I know he loves me. It probably averages a few times a week. Not more.

Mine didn’t grow up with using it either, and to the best of my knowledge I’m the first girl he’s been inclined to say it to. in the beginning it was few and far between but it’s gained a life of its own! We say it to eachother at least once but it does happen multiple Times every day usually. It’s like he can’t stop saying it now, it’s very sweet and adorable ❤️
Edit: thinking about it we didn’t start being so intent on saying it often until after he came home from afghanistan with a significant (ish) injury. That’s probably the catalyst.

Any time we hang up the phone, go about our own business and on random! Id say more then a handful times a day! 😊

We say it to each other frequently. Multiple times a day. We don’t subscribe to the belief that saying it often makes it lose its meaning. Instead, it reinforces the feeling for us. We frequently say it to each other because it’s the truth. In that moment, you think about them and how much you love them and you want to express it verbally. It’s beautiful.
But we also say it through more than just words. We show it through our actions, as well.

We are together 24/7 due to unforseen circumstances and we say it maybe every two hours, sometimes more. So I’d say we average ten times a day easy because sometimes we will sitt together watching tv and say I love you back and forth like eight times. I love it.

buzzingbee82: About the same as you I reckon. I just asked Darling Husband and he reckons 20 but I think that’s steep for work days!
It started out as a bit of a joke to be annoyingly saying ‘I love you’ constantly, but then it just sort of stuck! We’ve been together eight years.

Every couple of days I guess. I’m more of an actions speaks girl anyways.

Took him 8 months for him to say it to me the first time, then he wouldn’t shut up about it LOL! I did not grow up in a family that said it very often (if ever) and neither did he. But once he said it to me, he couldn’t stop. I swear there are some days we say it 50+ times. After a few weeks, I grew to love hearing and saying it. And now it’s just natural for us to say it.
I was unaware of this until Darling Husband, but one of my Love Languages is WORDS. In my past relationships I came off as a little needy and now I know why. I didn’t get the words I needed to feel secure in my relationships. Turns out Darling Husband is similar in that he never knew one of his Love Languages is WORD too. Good thing the universe brought us together!!

TELLS me? Hardly ever, he’s a very reserved man. He SHOWS me he loves me every day by his actions. And I’d rather have that then a man who tells me all the time and then sneaks around behind my back.

Multiple times a day, and even in his sleep if I rouse him a bit. Very sweet <3

At least twice a day. Morning and night lol

At least when we wake up and when we go to sleep. Sometimes he’ll say it throughout the day as well. I feel like I say it more, but I’m also just a more talkative person, so it doesn’t seem weird to me.

We say it back and forth several times a day 🙂 In the morning before work, everyday at lunch since we eat at home together, and a couple times at night (definitely when we go to sleep). It’s important for us to show and tell each other frequently that we love each other. We’ve been together 7 1/2 years and married 1 1/2 years.

Multiple times a day – sometimes he just gazes at me and I ask him why he is looking at me and he says “I just love you”… be still my heart!

This thread is cute 🙂
My Fiance and I say it to each other many, many, many times a day, I wouldn’t even be able to count it! I love when he says it in his sleep if he lightly wakes up, it always puts a smile on my face! 😀 Of course he shows me he loves me with everything he does, but my heart flutters every time he tells me he loves me 😀
