I told him when we were kissing (we were both each others first so this hadnt happened yet so it wasnt after sex haha)


We were kissing and i nearly sort of sighed it by accident, stopped myself and looked like aww shit! he grinned and was like what? I was like I nearly said something bad there..

he said was it three words? I went beetroot red and nodded.

He whispered ‘say it’

and i told him I loved him – the first time i ever said it in my life.

He GRINNED and said it back and gave me a bear hug. haha

He said it first the night we got engaged.


Funny, because at the time I was contemplating, “How do I know if I love him?” It probably sounds silly to ask yourself that question, but loving my now husband is different than loving my mom, my niece, or the dog, lol.


Of course I said I love you in return. πŸ™‚

It was about 4 weeks after our first date.  I got a text message in the middle of the night from him that said ‘i think i’m in love with you’.  i was so excited but so tired i ended up falling asleep in the middle of my response.  i woke up an hour or so later and wrote back ‘i think im in love with you too’ and then went back to sleep.

i had to double check in the morning that it actually happened and it wasnt a dream! Now, Darling Husband tells me that it was the longest hour of his life back then and he and his buddy (a mutual friend) watched tv and stared at the phone waiting for my response. 

it was cute – we were in high school so a text message ‘I love you’ is forgivable πŸ™‚

3 months into dating πŸ™‚  I was visiting now Darling Husband the summer between freshman and sophmore year of college.  We stayed up really late and talked for hours and hours and he told me first.  Totally romantic and adorable moment that I will never forget! πŸ™‚

the 4th day we were ever together – it just fell right out of my mouth – wasn’t even sure I’d said it out loud – but I did and he heard it

We had only been dating 2 months. I had been burned really badly before and was freaking out with how fast the relationship was going. We were both really young (I had just turned 20 and he was almost 19) and were sitting on my bed in my college apt waiting to go to a party. we had been inseparable from the beginning and saw each other everyday. we both wanted to say it but we’re too scared. It literally was a “I don’t want to say it first” moment. We ended up saying at the same time. It was nice πŸ™‚ I meant those words but now after 5 years, I truly can’t imagine life without him And our love for each other has greatly matured.

I knew I lovEd him from about 4 month into the relationship. I love him like crazy! We spent nearly every day together, moved into his house after 3 months, talked about a future together. I didn’t want to say I love you first bc I didn’t want him to feel pressured to say it back. He would say stuff like calling me “love” or saying his mother would be my mother too soon, said he was gonna be with me for 50 years so why was I said I was gonna be away for 2 days, etc. I would leave him notes every morning when I left and say stuff like “with love, me” and he would play around and pretend to hit me and say that’s how he shows love, etc. so why not just say it!!!! 


One day around 5 month in, I texted him at work and said “you know I love you right?” And immediately said “I shouldn’t have texted that” and he said “yeah, not good to say that first time on text”. But since he never said he loved me too I never said that again. 

I actually posted here at about 6 months asking for opinions. About a week later, we were having sex and he looked at me and said “I love you” and I wasnt sure i heard him right. So I kept on and didn’t say anything. So he said it again, touched my face, just very sweet. He’s not always a romantic person so that was very touching an surprising. I said “you know I love you too”. 


So worth hearing it , to wait for it.

We were 11 months in.  Although due to his job, we were apart a lot… he’d be gone 6 weeks, home for 3, gone for 5, home for 4… that kind of thing.  I refused to say it first because at 24 years old, this was my first real relationship whereas he’d been in a few.  So even though I was falling so hard and felt like he was the one, I kept telling myself not to get my hopes up, and was trying to keep myself prepared for him to leave me… Lame, right?

We were spending a romantic weekend away in Niagara Falls… still to this day the best vacation we ever had together!

We were on the great big ferris wheel after a delicious mexican dinner and margeritas.  It got quiet and he just said “baby? …. I think I love you…”  Lol… couldn’t just say I love you.  I was so in shock but sooooo happy!!! That night before bed I just said “say it again”  and he said I love you…. Now it pours out of my mouth all the time… Cant stop loving that boy!
