Updates:
Okay, yes, I agree that love has no set time and you don't have a specific time when you say it, but I was asking in general. From your experience, on average, how long did it take you to say "I love you"?

Sorry for the confusion!

  • Quite a while.. I have to truly mean it. Those words carry a lot of weight. I'm not someone who casually throws it around.

  • What is wrong with people that this keeps coming up. If your putting a time on it then it is NOT love. you cannot put a time limit on feelings. Most of the people that answered this are simply saying the words because they feel they should. If you truly love someone you can NEVER NOT LOVE THEM. That is very serious and significant. You can end up loving them differently, but you can never say " I don't love you anymore". If you can, that was never love. So stop trying to put a timeline on it.

  • There is no set time, love has no timer it may happen with weeks, month or even years. It could happen at the perfect moment or the most surprising one. But there is no set time.

  • You mean how long into a relationship? It would take a while but there's no set time limit, it's just whenever I start feeling it. I'm not the type to just throw the word "love" around like it's meaningless. So, when I say it, it's completely genuine.

  • I've never told a guy I love them before and my longest relationship was about 7 months. I'd say it will take me about 6months to a year to get there.

  • My boyfriend said it on our first date (freaked me out) but I took a couple months to say it back. He claims he was thinking it and it just came out. Lol. I was thinking it but wasn't gonna say it.

  • TBH I have a hard time admitting I love someone. I'm scared they won't feel the same, because it's happened to me so many times. I fall in love with a person quickly. I realize most people take longer so I wait. Then I become too scared to say anything because I fear they won't love me back or that they will get upset. It's irrational to feel this way in my opinion but I've had some really bad experiences.
