It is one of the best feelings in the world when your partner or a loved one says, ‘I love you.’ You feel special and want to express your adoration for them in return. However, saying a simple ‘I love you, too’ may feel too mechanical and even half-hearted. Therefore, you need to mix things up a little and get creative to express your feelings. For instance, saying ‘I love you a little more each day,’ or ‘every time I look at you, I feel love’ are great ways to say it even more creatively!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is “you too” a good response to “I love you”?

No. Love is too powerful an emotion to be replied to half-heartedly. “You too” sounds very insincere, dismissive, and impersonal.

What’s the worst response to “I love you”?

When someone says “I love you” to you and you do not feel the same, do not dismiss them. Mocking, being condescending, sarcastic, or dismissive would be the worst responses.

How to respond to “I love you” for the first time?

If you wish to respond to it with love too, take the opportunity to confess your honest feelings to them. If you do not return their feelings, politely let them know you are not interested.
