Have you ever told someone you loved them and they didn’t say it back?

Or maybe they responded with something totally weird?

It happens all the time!

And today we’re gonna hear from AskReddit users about what they think are the worst responses to “I love you”.

Let’s take a look!

1. Oh…

“I feel the exact same way.

I love myself too.”

2. Good ones!

“Some of my favourites are:

I know.


Who’s this?

New phone who dis?

Yeah but what have you done for me lately?

OK but show me your b**bs

Which one are you again?”

3. Hang on tight.

“”I don’t think that you know what that means.”

Then asks me to leave. In a rush. As I leave, hot arsehole from work arrives.


Don’t worry. The next day she asked me over. Then explained how the hot guy offered her alcohol, which she refused. Then took advantage of her, because of her emotional state.

She was emotional because I had told her I loved her.

Yeah… I was a little bit hurt after that one.

Don’t worry. Of course I drove her down to the shops and bought her food. And took her home. And cooked the food.”

4. Turned out okay.

“My girlfriend’s response the first time I said it: “oh no!”

She was just caught off guard ?.

She reciprocated right after that.”

5. How romantic.

“The first time I ever told my now-wife, “I think I’m in love with you” was after a big college party. We had come home pretty tipsy.

She said, “Would you be offended if I go throw up right now?””

6. Huh?

“I love U2.

Their music is inspiring and Bono is an amazing social advocate!”

7. Definitely not good.

“I have two:

“You b**ch!”

“Huh… that’s so weird.”

Those have to be among the worst.”

8. Let’s switch gears.

“”That’s great!”

Proceeds to change subject at lightspeed…”

9. Sorry…

“Aw, geez.

Sorry to hear that…”

10. Thumbs up!

“Well… my GF was talking to me and I wasnt really paying attention, so to get my attention she said ‘I love you’, and awaited my response.

I didn’t really hear it but she just kept looking at me so I turned towards her and gave her a ‘thumbs up’ and a ‘that’s nice honey’.

She will never let me live that down and to this day we still give each other a ‘thumbs up’ if the other says ‘I love you’, getting close to 10 years now so I guess it wasnt too bad.”

11. A hot take.

“”I love you too.”

Bear with me.

Reader, if you tell someone “I love you”, and they hemm, and haww, and don’t answer at once. If they tell you “I care about you too”, or “Well, I have to think about that”.

That is what they are supposed to say. Instead, many MANY people will just say “I love you too”, because that is the easiest and safest and is what they think the other person wants to hear.

And it can get bad. It takes guts, and respect for your partner, to tell them “I have to think about that”, instead of taking the easy way out. If you do not mean it, “I love you too” is the absolutely worst thing you can say. It’s not fair, it’s not true, and bad s**t comes from relationships where everyone is not on the same page. Same team.

Honesty is hard. Respect is hard. But without em, you are playing games with someone else’s heart. Take people seriously. Think hard about what you feel, and if you need time to think, say it.”

12. Not good.

“This is going to sound so shallow…

But what was your name again?”

What do you think is the worst response to “I love you”?

Let us know in the comments.

Thanks in advance!
