    Together for nearly 10 years, married, and we probably say it 5-7x per day… Between getting ready and leaving in the morning, morning texts, phone call when leaving work, hanging out before bed, then bed time. Random, out of the blue I love yous are my fave 🙂

    alamana:  You are so right! If they don’t grow up using that word a lot, they don’t think to pepper it in all the time, it’s no big deal!

    My Fiance will say it once every few days on his own, though always after I say it to him – I say it a lot. He shows me in other ways he loves me, by leaving little love notes around the house, taking care of me when I need it most, supporting me while I started up my business, never complaining about doing absurd amount of dishes day after day because I am too lazy, watching 4 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy with me even though he’d like to watch his man shows and even putting Cinderella on my Netflix list before he moved away.

    … It can get a little stressful, now that we are doing this long distance thing after 4 years together, and he doesn’t ever text it or email it to me only over the phone or skype. I feel like now that we don’t live together (not even in the same town) I need to hear it 10x more. But because it’s not natural for him I feel like I may be suffocating him if I bring it up, I’m just being too needy.

    Maybe a couple times a month? Darling Husband is not into his words, and this was discussed a lot while we were dating (married a little over a year, been together for over 5). He’s just not a words person. But, he does show me and say other stuff other than those three words.

    I don’t say it to him as often as I should because he never says it to me. Do I wish we said it more? Of course, but I don’t think he loves me any less. He’s definitely more of a actions guy than words.

    I voted ‘daily’ but I’m pretty sure it’s multiple times a day. But it’s guaranteed that he says it when he leaves for work and that’s for sure so that’s how I voted.

    I never thought to count, but I would have to guess dozens. Basically every time he looks at me he’s saying it. Both of us value verbal validation though, so it is the way we express love. I know people in happy relationships who don’t express love through words but instead with physical affection, gifts, or actions.
