for 2 years i've been dating my girlfriend and were doing great. everyday since the first day we were together we've been saying the love you sentence after every conversation we had on phone. but after 2 years, sumtimes she or me doesn't mention it anymore and when we realised it we get upset. do you always say i love you to your partner?

Hi 4u2enjoy, It is always I do say to her when I finish a phone call. It has just become a habit. Sometimes it is better to let the other now how you feel. Even if it is a simple I love you on a phone. Life is full of surprises an you never know what might happen, so let your loved ones know how you feel

Yes it is good to have that habit. You never know when you will see that person again and as they say life is short, so grab it with both hands

No definitely not. I don't believe there is a need to say it over and over again and if you do use the words 'I love you' too much I actually think the magic if saying it can get lost if you are not careful. I am also quite suprised that you were both saying that you loved each other from the first day of being together. How could you know that you love each other so early in the relationship?

I try to. I have been with my boyfriend for 5 years now. We also forget sometimes after the conversation but usually one of us will say it when we both know that it makes us upset. There is that short pause before you hangup and one of us will go I love you babe in a sweet manner. And I know that he is smiling when he does it so that really makes me happy. I think that it's a good necessity to say I love you still. After awhile that is how couples stop talking to each other, and stop letting each other know how they really feel. And then that can lead to cheating and other bad things. But :) you can always tell her I love yah! cause i'm sure she wants to hear it as much as you.

I always say "I love you" at the end of conversations with family. Especially with my grandparents - I would hate for something to happen to them and not get the chance to tell them I love them one last time. It still means just as much to me; its not just a meaningless habit that I've gotten into, but I can see how it could lose some "magic" if said too much.

yeah it might lose the magic but as long as we really meant when saying it. thanks for the response.

I feel happy to know that the deeper and the longer we are in the relationship the "i love you's" are in fact becoming more frequent. We say it like a thousand times each day and still feel the need to say it more. It's like words, and the line "I love you" are never enough to express what we feel inside. I don't know if this should go on until marriage but I do hope so. Others think it will lose its meaning eventually but it is different for my case. You don't have to force each other to say it just for the sake of saying it. If you would say it, you should be confortable and willing to say it hence it will really lose its meaning.

yeah, there are certain people that doesn't believe in saying the i love you word but there are also people who appreciate when they are being said i love you. trust me, by saying i love you is enough to make your partner happy if you we really meant it.

I do. But I sometimes simply don't mention it when I'm mad or angry at my partner. It's alright for me because I really know that he knows I will always love him, even when I purposely don't reply his I love you :)

Its not the number of times that you say it that matters most but how you mean what you say. In your case it would seem that you have forgotten the real menacing of "I love you" and had turned out to be more like a habit instead of a genuine expression of love for one another. Like someone said, when those words are said often without thinking or real feeling it can indeed lose its real meaning.

Dear friend, I do not say now as I have no girlfriends to say so. But when I had I used to say through even though not all times. Not only through phone but directly also.

Nope.I don't do those sort of things.haha.and to think I'm a girl.I have this principle that "I love you" isn't a word to be said but an action to be done.That's all.and by the way, I have also known a lot of my friends who do those things but they didn't really end up happily with their boos.

It is nice to say it/hear it but I don't know that it is always necessary. I don't think there's a need to get upset if it isn't said. And if you or she gets upset if it isn't said then the one who needs it to be said should make sure he/she says it!
