  • Depends how long I've known them. I liked a close friend for almost three years and can honestly say I loved him (still do, though not romantically now), so if we had dated, I'd have been fine saying it from the beginning of the relationship. If it's a guy I've only known for a few months, I'd wait until I know him well and there's the same level of trust that best friends have.

  • Until I am sure about my feelings. Took me slightly over a year into the relationship with my boyfriend. I was the first to say it

  • I don't feel comfortable saying it until we've been in a relationship for a while. If I had to put a time frame on it, I'd say 8 months - a year. I find it extremely hard to say, even if I do truly love someone. I think it's because I don't express my true emotions enough to have that vulnerability be lessened

  • I wait until I feel like I am in love with them. I don't want to lie and say it too early. I don't want to play games and not say it just because my SO hasn't said it first, that is immature. The day or moment I feel like I am in love with them, that is when I want to say it.

  • We were friends for 6 months, but liked each other during that time period. Once we started dating he said it within a month. I said it a week after he said it.
    I didn't put a time frame on anything, just said it once it felt right.

  • Until I feel comfortable saying. I might love them but still don't feel like pouring my heart out, so I do it until I trust that my heart won't get broken straight away. ;D

  • I wait until I actually feel it... even if he says it first.
    Nothing is worse than say it back just to be polite after all, love is not about etiquette.

  • I never said it first but with all three girls I've dated, they said they loved me before we even dated. I just wait because I don't want to be foolish.

  • When you’re ready is the only answer to this.

    Me personally, I’ve only said it once. It took me about six months to actually physically say, even though I felt it much earlier.
