Check out what’s new on our boards! Right now, girls are talking about what to do when you say ‘I love you’ and he doesn’t say it back. Check it out:
I said I love you, and he didn’t. Now what do I do?
This is my first serious relationship, not his. We slept together after 3 months. A few days later I told him I loved him, to which he replied that he’s afraid of getting hurt after his last relationship and that he can see himself loving me one day. He also said that sex and love aren’t the same, so its not accurate for me to assume that because we had sex we love each other.
I’m trying to move past this and just enjoy being with him, but it hurts so much to think that I love him and he just likes me. It also hurts that my first time wasn’t really out of love, and that it wasn’t as important to him as it was to me. I don’t know how to move on, particularly to continue sleeping with him when I know it means more to me. I always wanted to be one of those girls that you really respect and care about, but this kind of makes me feel like I’m just kind of fun to hang out with and sleep with but nothing more.
We’ve talked about this a bit, but nothing really came of it (obviously, because the only thing that would genuinely make me feel better is to know that he loves me like I love him). Any advice on how to deal with this situation?
Got something to add to this convo? Then go for it, girl. Tell us what you think in the boards: How should she deal with this situation?
