We do this and have for our whole relationship– it’s one of the things I cherish the most. We also try to say I love you at the end of every phone call and long texting convo. It’s important. Good on you for doing it.

DH HATES it, but I always tell him I love him and give him a kiss before I leave, when I get back, and right before bed.

We already do this. I think we tell each other we love them at least 5 times a day. Fiance was insecure at the start of our relationship so he said it a lot so I would say it back because he liked hearing it. It grew into a habit that stuck for us.

I’m so sorry to hear about your friend.

I also already do this, as I’ve lost too many people in my life tragically. The very last thing I say to my Fiance every night is I love you.  if I say something after that, I say I love you again.  

And we always, always say I love you before one of us leaves in the morning.  This morning, I left for work while my Fiance was still asleep, and he had left a note that said “I love you” on the coffeemaker.

So important to say, not only to your spouse but family and friends also.

Oh no! Sorry for your friend’s loss! Everytime I read a story like this it tears me up. Having a Fiance on the road 5-6 days a week, you worry about any weather conditions or accidents on the road. We already say I love you as much as possible, whether it be in person, through text or on the phone.

I like this, life is sometimes to short.  Fiance and I say I love you every morning, every night, before we leave for anything, multiple times throughout the day and even in the middle of fights.  Even in our worst times it is important for us to express our love so that we are reminded of what we are fighting and living for.

@BrandNewBride:  I’m confused, why does he hate it?

And to the OP, I’m so sorry for your friend’s loss. 🙁 I can’t even imagine. 

BF and I tell each other we love each other all the time. Before bed, when we hang up on the phone, etc. Life’s too short. 🙁

He’s not a very affectionate person, or from an affectionate family. As he loves to say, “I go to bed to get some sleep, not to stay up and talk and kiss for another 10 minutes.”

He’s about as warm and fuzzy inside as… Well… A dead thing!

Definitely worth doing!  We always do some form of “love you” when one is leaving, and other random times.  It’s like it’s own language there are so many ways to say it and tones/inflections.  We’ve gotten to where even if we’re arguing we say it, a genuine “I love you”… not “I love you but…” lol.

I had a friend pound this into me when I was in my early twenties.  He had severe diabetes type one and was told he wouldn’t live til 30 as a child, and he was past that.  So he said “I love you” a lot to everyone he cared about because he already felt like he was living on borrowed time.  He made it to 40 and died outside his new wife’s work place, had a heart attack working on his bike, while she was working inside.  It was so sad, but he lived the fullest life of anyone I’ve ever known.

I’m so sad for you and your friend.  Definitely go see him, unless he expressly tells you not to.  Just be there.  Take him things to do in the hospital.  Buy him a stuffed animal, you’re never too old or manly for one, especially if you’re grieving.

I cannot imagine what I would do if I were in your friend’s position. I’m definitely in. This is a great challenge. Thanks for the reminder, we all need them sometimes!

Oh god that’s so sad. Definitely makes you want to hug your loved ones! My Fiance and I already say “I love you” when we go to sleep and whenever we leave or just feel like it, but I’ll make sure to say it even more Smile

I’m in.
I need to say it more often anway. You can never say “I Love You” too much.

We say “I Love You” daily, but especially before we head out the door for work. I am usually sleeping when Fiance comes into bed, but he kisses me goodnight anyway and tells me that he loves me, even though I’m out cold.

I am so terribly sorry for your friend’s loss. It’s never easy to lose someone so soon, especially with your whole future invested in that person.
