    He did. I was mad though because he was leaving to go back home and said it as he was leaving. And I didn't want to say it via text so I had to wait till he came back to visit 2 weeks later

    Sooo the funny thing is I kinda pulled it out of him first. I knew that he loved me as I loved him, but I was too scared to say it first, so I teased it out of him after a couple drinks haha. "Do you think you could love me?" I asked. "Yeah, I do love you" he responded defensively. Ah memories Smiley heart

    Definitely him, I was not quite ready yet because I had been in a 4 year relationship prior to him that kind of broke me. But now I say it more than he does lol.

    He said first. I was terrified. I waited until we were dating for about 6months.

    I said it 2 days before him. He had planned a whole thing for valentines day (6 months into the relationship) with chocolates that said I love you. He didn't want to ruin the surprise so the first thing that he thought to say after I said I love you was 'don't you think it's too soon?' He felt so bad after that but didn't know how to back track. It was all better once Valentines day hit!

    He did. It was our first Christmas together and when I opened my gift (a necklace and earrings), I got weirdly emotional. He said that he wanted to write a note that said "I love you" and stick it in the box but he never ended up doing it and figured he would just say it. So then of course I got even more emotional lol

    He did! We were celebrating 1 month together. I was so concerned that I was accidentally going to say it first. He said it, and even though it only took me maybe 5 seconds to respond, it felt much longer, as I sat there thinking that I needed to say it back before it got more awkward. Smiley xd

    He will say I did, but I remember the date, action he and I were doing and the way he said it. I was in the master bathroom of his house, he was in the room changing into his jammies, jumps into the bed and as he was falling to the bed he said with a sigh "I love you babes". I LOL'd and said "no you don't, you lust me".

    PS I didn't say I love you for another 6 months but almost did when he said he knew what a fluffer nutter was. Smiley smile

    He did! We "talked" for a month and a half, and the day after he asked me to be his girlfriend he said the L word. I immediately said it back! We both knew super early on we were going to end up marrying each other. Smiley smile

    She did. Fun story, though鈥攊t happened in the same conversation where I finally told her how I felt about her. We were best friends and roommates, and we had both had feelings for months and didn鈥檛 want to tell the other. An empty house and tequila shots finally brought it all out.
