I’m not going to lie:  four days into our relationship, LOL.  BUT!!  We’d been talking/casually dating for a few weeks before we even made it official, so…  But even so, less than three months.  Dont judge us!

@MissCalifornia:  Oh thank God. I always feel bad about my “I love you” story.

He said it about 6 weeks in but I was totally taken aback. I basically said “I feel like it’s too early to say that” and he took it well. Then about a week later we were on the phone having a deep conversation and he said it again and I realized “Wow… me too!” so I said it back. Now we say it way too much ๐Ÿ˜›

We first said it 5 or 6 weeks into our relationship. We were on Skype because at the time we were long distance (I was back with my parents for 6 weeks, about 2 weeks in). We talked on Skype for hours almost every night I was interstate.


The night we said it, we’d already been talking for about 4 hours non stop. One of us said they wanted to say something and got all shy and the other said me too (lol I can’t remember which one of us!) and at the exact same time we said “I love you”.


We are still super cute. His (married) sister thinks its gross! ๐Ÿ˜›

We exchanged I love you’s about 2 and a half months into the relationship.

I had been at his house the Sunday before Valentine’s Day and we were playing around about how we didn’t know how anyone could love our friend, and he said “I don’t think you could ever love me….” and I knew he was hinting at it. I refused to say it, though, because even though I knew I cared for him a lot, I wasn’t sure if I loved him.

About a week later, I was driving home from spending the evening with him and it hit me. I loved the loser. So when we he texted me later, I told him there was something I needed to tell him and that it had to be in person. It was the biggest hint I could give. lol

That weekend, at his house, he kept asking me about it, and I kept saying he’d have to wait. Eventually, he looked and me and said “Natalie, if you aren’t going to say it, I am. I love you, damn it.” It was great. :3

Second day of our relationship. He was deployed to Travis AFB and we had spent most of the night talking.

It was about 4.5 months into our relationship. We were on his front porch saying goodnight and while he was hugging me he quietly whispered those 3 special words and I replied in kind (way to make it sound unromantic, right??). It was an amazing moment!

That is my story!  Mr. M and I met when we were in 7th grade, and he was my first bf.  We went out for a few days.  In typical 7th grader fashion, the girls made fun of me, and I couldn’t handle the peer pressure, so I broke up with him.  We remained friends, however, and talked on the phone all summer.  I’m guessing it was when I was going to move away that he first said it.  He said it again a couple of years later while we were talking on the phone.  He said he’d never really gotten over me, and he was dating someone who reminded him of me.


Fast forward 20 years.  We now were in our early 30s.  He found me again on Facebook and said “Hey stranger.”  From that moment, we were in contact every day.  He had asked me if I had ever married, and I told him no.  He replied he hadn’t either, that he was saving marriage for me.  Somewhere in those conversations, he said he still loved me, even after 20 years!  


I was afraid to say it back, afraid to feel the same way after reconnecting for only a week or two.  When I had a chance to really think about it, I mean really think…it blew my mind for me to realize I felt the same way.  I had gotten out of a “relationship” (we texted for 3 years, and never really went out) a few months before, and told the guy I loved him when I didn’t.  I wanted to mean it this time.  When I told Mr. M that I loved him, it was such a relief!  It overwhelms me still to think of how I feel for him, and we’ve been together nearly 2 1/2 years.

It was about 6 weeks into the relationship. He had told me a couple of weeks before (when slightly drunk) that he had a secret and would tell me then the time was right. It drove me absolutely nuts! So I told him that I had a secret too. Then we were cuddling one night and he asked if I thought we shared a similar secret. He ended up telling me that night ๐Ÿ™‚

3 months in, he said it to me while we were cuddling/sleeping on a twin size so not exaggerating, it sounded like I heard it in a dream! ๐Ÿ™‚

I said it first, after three months and while drunk and in bed at like 3 am. He didn’t say it back, so I just moved on. I’m pretty sure I was too drunk to realize it was awkward. I didn’t say it again or bring it up again until after he he said it. 

He said it at about 6 months, after he moved me across the county for school. He later told me he had been waiting for us to get through that 27 hour drive to see how it went. Luckily we had a good drive, so he said it the first morning at my new apartment. A lot more meaningful than if he had responded when I drunkinly said it the first time…

Two weeks in, he said: “If this is the way you are, I’m totally going to fall in love with you. I think,. No, I already have,” Then he didn’t say it again for another few weeks and I said it back. After that we were saying it all the time.

It was about 3 months into our relationship (5 years ago). I can’t remember what we were talking about on his couch, but I told him I was falling in love with him, and he replied, “I’m already in love with you.” ๐Ÿ™‚  Totally surprised me, I didn’t expect him to tell me back right then.

Mine was about a month after we started hanging out.

I had unfortunately fallen asleep right before he told me, which resulted in him thinking that I was ‘fake sleeping’ to get out of saying it back. We had started out as friends so he thought he was moving too fast and went to sleep that night thinking he messed everything up.

I still feel bad that I didn’t hear him, and he had to go to bed knowing he loved me and that I may not love him back!!
