There’s this pressure to say I LOVE YOU when your significant other says it first, it’s not like you don’t want to say it but you’re just not quite ready yet and not saying it back might cause drama. Apparently some people love faster while others prefer to take their time before jumping or falling in love. If you fall into the category of those who fall in love a little slower (or you’re a player who has problems with saying I love you) then here are the best ‘No Drama’ replies.
AWWWWW YOU’RE SO CUTE
If you use this line, make sure that you don’t say it like you’re talking down to him. If it makes him feel like a child or a puppy, then he won’t be happy. But if you say these words and follow them up with an intense kiss, he should realize you love him too.
As long as you say the words playfully, he’ll be so busy trying to think of an answer that he won’t even realize you didn’t say the words back to him. Of course, there’s always the chance that he’ll turn the question around and ask you how much you love him.
I’M SO LUCKY TO HAVE YOU
This is one of the best ways to respond, because it will show him that you’re happy to have him in your life. Even though you’re not ready to say the words yet, it’ll suggest that you’ll be able to say them one day. You just need more time.
You can either say this phrase as a joke, or you can ask it as a serious question. After all, if he says the L word out of the blue, it’s only natural for you to want to know why he suddenly feels so strongly for you.
This is a short and sweet response. If you don’t want to lie to him, then this is probably the way to go. After all, it’s always nice to hear that someone loves you. If he knows that you’re happy about his feelings, and not terrified by them, then he should realize that your own feelings are headed in the same direction. They’re just not there yet.
