okay honestly i wait for the guy to say i love you first because if i know i already mean it but not sure if he does , then i don't want to scare him away or let my guard down , I've been hurt too many times , unless you're 100 % sure and you have been going out with them over a certain period of time then i say shoot for it , doesn't matter
I have never said it first but when a guy says it to me for the first time I say do you really feel it or are you just saying it because you think you shouls. It's okay if you don't. But if you don't let's wait until we really really mean it and it always does the trick.
it doesnt really matter who says it first. i think that for one to say "i love you" it has to be from the heart and truly love not LUST. second in my opinion the one who sincerely feels the love the strongest is the one who should say it first (girl or guy)
