How comfortable were you saying "I love you" after both partners expressed it the first time?
He finally said it after almost a year! This month will be our official 1 year anniversary. It was really cute how it happened and very unexpected. We were just laying on the bed doing absolutley nothing but looking into eachother’s eyes (sounds corny I know!), smiling, just talking, goofing around, singing, etc. Randomly I thought about if I had been blind what senses about him would I like and I just closed my eyes and felt his touch. It was quiet for a while and I told him, “Say something…I like hearing your voice.” Then he said “I love you” lol.
He said he had known for a few months but was too scared and that moment felt right. All the fluther people know that I’ve been waiting forever and that being the stupid girl I am I was not willing to say it first but to wait for him! Anyways, I told him I loved him too and I was teary eyed at the thought of finally getting to that stage because I’m an emotional person. The moment felt right.
Anyways, today we hung out again. Before leaving me he told me, “I love you” and I felt really weird to say “I love you too” for some reason. I guess I just wasn’t used to it. I felt like there were times I wanted to say I love you and would feel comfortable doing it but as a “regular” thing of saying it often it felt weird. He said I’ll get used to it lol and that I wasn’t alone in that feeling. I hope he’s right.
