What does it mean when your boyfriend gives you a balloon that says I Love You?

For Valentines Day, but he has never said the words to you. Last month we broke up for 2 weeks and got back together. Things have been going good we have been together for over a year and a half. But this Valentines Day he brought me Red Roses and Red Carnations with a Balloon that says in Big Letters "I Love You" He has not told me verbally that he loves me. Am I reading too much into the balloon. I mean we have been together for a while and I am the only girlfriend he has ever brought home to meet his family. So maybe this does mean more?

Sounds like his way of saying he loves you. Maybe he was feeling a little guilty over the break up and wanted you to know that he does but cant find the words to tell you himself. Maybe hes shy or insecure of how you will react or what to say. I would take it as a good sign...

Have u ever asked him if he loved you? Maybe that will get him to say it start up a conversation about it. Thats a good long time to be together without saying it, i also think it does depened on what the age is of you and your boyfriend. Breaking up and getting back together happens in the begining of relationship. Me and my boyfriend have been together a year and 6 months also and we did break up in the begining but we seem to be inseperable and we are always doing things for eachother like if he is on his way home and i need something he will pick it up and swing by to bring it to me. Its the little things that guys do that impress us. I have never received a balloon before from him but many flowers and cards and not even for special occassions for just being me i guess LOL. Flowers and floowers you like that he knows is a plus for me. I love it when i guy just knows you from inside and out.

Sometimes actions speak louder then words. All relationship have problems but it's how you both work it out. Sometimes it needs a break or a space to think where the relationship would be better and not for the worst. Your lucky girl! There are men who can't say I love you but they show it more and express it more by actions not by words. Yes it means more! Usually men have a hard time introducing the girl to his parents or family if he doesn't love her, for the man introducing a girlfriend is something precious to him, and he knows how deeply he loves you.Have a great day!

I think he loves you but could not collect the courage to make it verbal.May be he is too shy or say it.

May i ask you why you two broke up a month ago? and why did you said he never said i love you? first when he was able to give you gifts. By the way, the acts or deeds was saying i love you, but does he said sorry too or ask for forgiveness if he has done you wrong when you two broke up? i don't get it really but since you ask about the meaning of red flowers and balloons. So i would presume that he was saying sorry or reconcile and expressing love. Well some men are not easy to say i love you, but some men does. I think you need to develop your communication with each other so that you will better understand more, not reading each others mind.

It definitely doe mean i lot my friend. If first time he's done this then you should understand that he has decided to propose you and he did propose you by giving that balloon. Now its your turn to say,to reply how you feel about him. And as you've been to his home and met his family, you wont face problems in future!(i hope you got what i meant).Enjoy, love is a marvelous experience to have.

Hi musiqpoetic :) Welcome to myLot! I hope you'll enjoy it here :) I think Valentine's Day is really difficult on some relationships... particularly for those who are dating, not yet committed, etc. It can be a really over-the-top day when you try to shop for a card, a gift or some other expression of sentiment. Your boyfriend did buy you a lovely gift that is very traditional to most people. If the balloon was not part of a floral arrangement and he had to choose it separately, then it seems that he's making a statement about how he feels :D Maybe he is one of those people that has trouble verbalizing his feelings? Or maybe it's a case of "I don't want to be the first one to say it"?? Don't put pressure on him. You could always tell him how much you enjoyed his gift and it would give him the opportunity to say anything more he might want to say - outside of the pressure of Valentine's Day. If he just smiles, or says nothing more about it, don't assume he doesn't mean it. He probably just needs and wants more time. If he brought you home to him family, he certainly has feelings for you... maybe that can be enough to know for now :) Good luck to you both!
