Saying I love you used to mean something. Now it is often over used. I have friends who tell women that just to give them a false sense of security. If you know what I mean.
That is definitely one of the reasons you should be looking at someone in the eye, while they are saying “I love you!” Ha ha along with a lie detector!
Ha ha I refuse to become synical because of a few bad apples, gosh darn it!

You remember YOUR first time saying it to a girl? ;)
Yep. lol

I also remember getting dumped because I didn't say it back. In my defense, it was the second or third date so I didn't know what to say...lol

She is the definition of ASSERTIVE! Ha ha I can totally picture a 3rd grader stomping off...
How old were you?
Lol but She was old enough to know better. That wasn't my first run in with the L word. That was only a few years ago... lol

Maybe women are using it for other reasons too now??? Maybe she was trying to give me a false sense of security...haha

A possible female narcissist hoping to have you at her feet? Was her lease up and possibly trying to shack up? Who knows? The games people play are exhausting, ugh!!! But, it sounds like it was a blessing in disguise...imagine all the drama and stress you saved yourself!!!!

Nah. It's even more romantic to say "I Love You" via morse code.

How can they possibly say 'no' to that?
I couldn't say no to that. Mainly because I don't know morse code and would have no idea what they said to begin with.

It still does mean something when said with sincerity to the one that you truly love. Yes, it can be a secure feeling knowing that there is someone that wants to share the love in their heart that was provided by God. At that point the journey begins.
