  • I would tell him that it really hurts your feelings when he does not say it back. Did he used to say it to you and suddenly stopped or has he never said it?

  • I wonder why he stopped. I would just tell him that it really bothers you and you would like to hear him say it like he used to. If he doesn't say it still I would not say it to him anymore either. I'm sure he will notice and wonder why you don't say it anymore. Keep me updated.

  • Maybe you say it too much. I mean, I hated it when my ex would say it all the time and that made me never want to say it again. It feels meaningless, annoying, and a bit angering to have to sit there and reassure someone like that that you love them and such.

  • I believe the more you bug a man about something, the more he will resist. Especially with something like that. You wouldn't want to guilt him into saying anyway. Him saying it because he feels forced to would hurt more than him not saying it at all. Have things changed between you? do you feel like he's more distant? If so, the problem is deeper than 3 little words.

  • My SO is the same way. He will tell me more on "accident" than on purpose...like as we're hanging up the phone or something. I guess when it does slip it feels more natural anyway. Do you KNOW he loves you or is he just saying you SHOULD know. I KNOW mine does, and his actions speak louder than words (or lack there of in this case)
