14 People Who Said ‘I Love You’ And Got The WORST Response.
According to a survey conducted by Match.com, it takes almost no time at all for the average couple to kiss (usually on the first date), 1-2 weeks to sleep together but not stay the night, and nearly 3.5 months to call it official. But when it comes to those three little words, 'I love you,' couples usually take about 144 days, or between 4-5 months.
Now, all of these are considered milestones because so few of us actually get there. A huge part of dating is rejection. Let's take a look at Tinder as an example.
In 2014, the New York Times published facts on the dating app: while there were about 1 billion profile swipes per day, there were only about 12 million matches made. If you do a simple calculation, that's hundreds of millions of rejections, but we're sure it's more complicated than that.
But when you finally do land a date or meet someone special, you might still experience rejection even if they were initially attracted to you. In fact, this can happen at any point in the relationship. Just know that you're not alone (unless you're the perpetually the heartbreaker, never on the other side).
Below you'll find 14 of the most heartbreaking responses to 'I love you' from users on reddit.
"Oh please, don't tell me you're in love with me!"
That was someone's response to Baaz saying, "Listen, I want to tell you something..." It's tough when you fall for mind readers.
When your father just wasn't raised that way...
"My Papaw says that EVERYTIME, no matter what the situation is. A couple Summers ago he went in for quadruple bypass surgery and as they were carting him away to surgery my Mom ran after him and said,' love you Dad.' He looked her straight in the eyes and said, 'Ok.' My Mom was PISSED. They got in a back and forth where she would tell him to just say it and he'd tell her she knew he loved her and he's always been like that. Eventually the boy carting him away told him to just say it and after a while he finally said, 'I love you too.''
"He's an old country boy who's family was never loveydovey, so we understand why he doesn't say it but my Mom is very affectionate so it really bothers her. I swear his last words will be, 'Well... Alright.'"
"Just sign the papers, honey."

"Yeahhh, how about let's not say that until we know we really mean it?"
Some of us fall for people like skizzl3, who don't reject you but just want to wait for the right time to say it:
"My wife and I started dating when I was 16 and she 14. She said I love you like 2 weeks after we started dating and I was like 'yeahhh how about let's not say that until we know we really mean it.''
"I knew neither of us really knew what it meant and didn't know if we loved each other, but apparently I knew something was special about her that I didn't want to say it just because."
"Edit: I'm 27 and she's 25 now."
