Have you ever said "I love you" to someone who deliberately didn't say it back to you?

I've had it said to me, and I replied with "that's nice thank you".

Seems legit. If you live in New York. That's how they say hello out there.

During an intervention for my sister. I told her I love her and we were doing it because we love her and care about her. She told me to fuck off and eat a sack of shit. She was just mad though. She says it back in normal situations. We know we love each other.

effort to fix the faults he finally saw in himself & has taken the "make sure others know how you feel, because you're not guaranteed tomorrow" sentiment to heart.

He stopped being careless about his health, got control of his anger and his tendency towards being tactless and offensively blunt.

It's not an Ebenezer Scrooge-type turnaround (and he didn't need that kind of change anyway. He has always been a good man), but he made a real and concentrated…

He was. He always said it with a smile & a wink. ;) But yeah, that colon cancer & melanoma battle was terrifying. I know some say people never really change their personality/nature, but dad stopped deflecting with smart elic (sp?) answers and now speaks honestly and truly about emotional things. …

A boy recently told me he was in love with me. I laughed. Now he's moved on and I'm in love with him. Sucks to be me?

In high school I was talking to my boyfriend on the phone, and I said. "I love you" and he said. "I love Pam." :( which was his ex girlfriend's name. nothing like your first heart break.

My ex husband refused to say it to me. He rarely said it to the kids. He would always answer with "What do you want"

AnnieM I'd bet it's what he meant all along, every time, but I can see setting aside the humor and being more careful to say exactly what you mean after a scare. Ten to one he was always "that guy" on the inside.

I had an experience like goldiemol. I also say it to my 4 yr frequently and it's sometimes not returned but he's only 4. I'd rather say it and it not b returned than have it returned only cause I said it. I want the other person to mean it and if they don't than I want to know that too.

I say I love you to my mom, my grandmother, and my closest friends. It's never not been returned. But then again, it's love between family and old friends, not romantic at all.

When dating my husband said it very early on in the relationship and I said thank you. I was not there yet. He luckily understood and we eventually got married and have a great life and marriage.

Heh, kidding, of course. He doesn't have siblings and he lives here in CA, so yeah. Always nice to know there are others who behaves similarly.

No, I'm usually the one who avoids saying it. My friends tell me they love me all the time, but when I say "I love you" to anyone, I want to really mean it. I don't want to just go with the flow and say it to everyone. I don't want it to lose any meaning.

Zod- my dad's stock answer used to be "Of course. Who wouldn't?" Once he went through a pretty scary battle with cancer he kind of stopped saying things like that and turned in to that guy that is the first to say "I love you" to family.

Eh, I tease him about the dog now. At the time I was pretty angry, but now it's just fun to mess with him about it.
He wouldn't use pet names at all for ages. He still doesn't really use nicknames, but he calls me "honey" so often that until recently our son was convinced it was my first name.

I'm in the same situation, Annie. My partner wouldn't say it for quite a while, nor would he indulge in pet names, either (honey, sweetie, etc.). Once he finally said it, he would only call me 'love'. Now he says it frequently and the pet names too. Sorry to hear about the dog business.

Yes, but to be fair he had called around Christmas, when I had been talking to family and it slipped out as a matter of habit. I was infatuated with him at the time, but we never ended up dating.

That's what I used say when she'd tell me she loves me: "Of course you do - everybody does." Eventually I learned it isn't always the preferred response, even if it's true.
