In the beginning of a relationship, one never wants to utter the ever powerful ‘I love you’ phrase too soon (or at all really).
- Your buddy Billy sent you a link to a song you love. Proper response: Thank you! Exaggerated response: I f-ing love you.
- The store clerk tells you that ice cream is on sale. Proper response: That’s great! Exaggerated response: That’s the best news I’ve ever heard. I love you!
- HOLT RENFREW is having a mega sale and the sales girl tells you that your shirt is free. Proper response: Awesome. Exaggerated response: Will you marry me? I think I’m in love with you.
So, if you speak nonsense daily you may want to watch your words at the beginning of something special. A girlfriend of mine started dating a dude recently and she was telling him that she was going to be spending the night out with her lady friends. She then went to text him ‘I love them’ but instead typed ‘I love you’. She instantly freaked out… apologized repeatedly and told him what she meant to say. She felt like a nutbar.
Recently I was out with a new dude when he bought me a Cadbury Cream Egg. Here’s the thing, I LOVE Cadbury Cream Eggs. Like love them. I think my heart flutters when I eat them (that could be the sugar rush). So when he gave it to me my instant gut reaction was to scream ‘I LOVE YOU’ and give him a high five. What’s that all about? Instead I began to giggle and said thank you.
He asked me why I was laughing so I told him that if we weren’t dating I would have told him I loved him and that since we were…well, that’s just weird.
