When your partner first said he/she loved you what did it mean to you? My new boyfriend of 1 year just told me loves me yesterday...I was thrilled...I have known for a bit now that I was in love with him and thought he was feeling the same thing but it was great to hear the words. These words meant the world to me because we had both been through really nasty divorces recently and were affraid of never feeling it again. Those 3 words are the most powerful words and to me mean that you have completely opened your heart and soul to someone. What does it mean to you?

..you're right.. in a relationship most specially in marriage, it is advisable not to fail to say I love you to your partner every time you have the opportunity to say it.. This will remind our partners that we are just here for them because we love them.. Even if both partners are already old, this is magic word for them to be reminded how great life is.. So that even in the midst of so many difficulties in the relationship, the love that we feel for each other will be the strong bond that will hold each other..

I am a firm believer in all that you say. Unfortunately is both of our previous marriages our spouses did not believe that so the adjustment of trusting your heart to someone again is not an easy process...but well worth it. I was fearful of hearing the words because I didn't really know if I would ever believe them from anyone ever again...but funny...I believe my boyfriend more than I ever did my ex. I am so glad the words have been said and now we can continue to show and tell eachother ever day...it is like a new beginning for both of us.
