7 Tips for Saying "I Love You" before He Does ...

Saying "I love you" is a huge deal.

Since it's such a big step in any relationship, you don't want to say it unless you're sure that it's the right thing to do.

While you'd prefer for your man to say those three little words to you first, sometimes the woman is the one who has to be brave.

If you're thinking about telling him that you love him, here are some things to remember:

1. Think about His Thoughts

Before you tell him that you love him, you should see how he feels about the word.

Is he someone who throws it around casually or does he like to date for years before it's uttered?

If he's the type of person who hates hearing it before things get super serious, then you should hold off on saying it unless you've been together for a large chunk of time.

Consider the Consequences

i have heard my bf say I love you in the middle of the night and I was half awake.. I didn't respond as I wasn't sure if my ears were playing with me. But what if he did say the three little words. I braved it one night and asked "Would you hate me if I tell you that I love you?" he replied "No. I love you too" then he kissed me.. I have melted xxx

I've said it in another context, to take the pressure off both of us. As in, "oh my god I love you! You're hilarious!", when he made me laugh really hard. This is a fun way to say it.

I said i love you first. He didnt say it back till the next day. He said its because i said it during dinner and he wanted to tell me in a private setting.
hi
my boyfriend said "i love you" first and i didn't say it back at the moment. he was not upset at all, he was actually glad that i didn't say it back if i didn't feel the same way back at the moment. i ended up saying it a week later if i remember correctly. can't wait for Valentine's Day. :)
