It was 6 months into our relationship…we were watching a movie in my bedroom at my old apartment around 1am. He gazed at me sweetly and just said it out of no where. I jumped a little! lol

SO and I had been really good friends for about a year, and we’d been dating about six weeks.  We went to the park where we had our first kiss (about a month prior to that!).  We were just about to leave when I looked at him and tried to say it, but couldn’t.  I realized it was the first time I was going to say it to a boyfriend and REALLY mean it.  Kinda ironic, huh?

He noticed I was thinking deeply and asked what was up.  I told him there was something I really wanted to tell him, but I couldn’t get the words out…  He smiled and waited for a minute, then shocked the hell out of me by saying it first.

I literally gasped and kissed him, I was so happy!

We had been together for about 2 pr 3 months at the time and he said it to me at a stoplight! We had both called in to work to spend the day together, and we were driving to lunch and he just comes out with ” I love you”.

We pretty much knew immediately that we were right for each other.

I think it was within a few weeks of dating. We had just come back from dinner and an evening out. We were sitting on the couch in my apartment and I was speaking to him in Spanish to tease him since he took French in high school. I told him that I couldn’t wait to tell our grandchildren 50 years from now how I met their grandfather and how we fell in love. He understood the “50 years” part of it, realized what I was talking about it and we told each other we loved each other (in English!).

We had been dating about 5 months – I was out of state on a week vacation that turned into two weeks. He called me just to say he was in love with me. Needless to say it took me another 6 months to repeat those words back to him. Not that I didn’t love him at the time, it just wouldnt come out right until then!

Ours was on our 4th date, 2 months after we met.  It was the morning of New Year’s Eve, we were cuddling and talking and he got very serious and said he wanted to tell me something, but he didn’t want me to respond that day even if I felt the same way, because he didn’t want to think that I felt obligated to reciprocate.  Then he said “I love you.  I want to have children with you, and grow old with you.”  (Swoon!)

I had already decided that I wanted to tell him that weekend, but didn’t know when or how.  Later that night we were cuddling on the couch and I looked at the clock 5 minutes before midnight and said, “I don’t want this year to end without telling you that I love you.”

I think it was about 5 months into our relationship.  We were at my apartment, on the loft laying down, talking about how in the past we didn’t treat the phrase with enough respect, and as I had brought the topic up, he asked “is there anything else you want to say?” and I hesitated and got nervous and said no, so he took a deep breath and said “okay, I’ll say it.  I think I love you.” and my heart swelled (it felt like a movie when the music swells, you know?) and then he said “No, that’s not right.  I KNOW I love you” and the music swelled even more and I said it back.  It was the sweetest thing ever 🙂

About 10 months after starting to date, maybe 5 months after we became more serious.

I can remember the where more than the exact when.  It was only a couple of months into our relationship… maybe two, I’m not sure.  We were in high school at the time, almost 10 years ago.   I was 15, he was 17.  We were out on my parents’ deck on the side of the house, sharing a lounge chair, just talking for hours.  He kissed me, and then told me that he loved me.  And I returned the sentiment. =)  I can still picture it so clearly.

I think it happened at about the three month mark. It was Saturday night, and he had come over to my apartment. We were just chatting and buzzing around, getting dinner ready, when he stopped me and put his arms around me and told me he loved me, and I told him I loved him too.

It was soooo sweet and tender. I still get fluttery and emotional when I remember it.
