I have been writing love stories for couples at every committed stage of a relationship, from their engagement through their 10-year anniversary and beyond, through my business Love Notery. In learning about how my clients fall in love, I always ask how they said I love you for the first time. What I noticed about how people told their partner they loved them for the first time may surprise you. You might think that the first I love you is said in a romantic setting — and it is — but it also actually happens quite a bit during an argument.
The First Time
It’s nerve-racking to say those three little words for the very first time. Will he reciprocate? What if she doesn’t feel the same way? All of these questions swirl around in your head while you have this unrelenting desire to express your love for your partner. When emotions are highest, like during an argument, those sweet words just pour out.
