10 Ways To Reply To ‘I Love You’ If You Can’t Say It Back Yet

Hearing that someone loves you is always a lovely thing; especially when it's your partner! But you don't need to feel pressured to respond to it with the same three words - here are some adorable, and totally non-awkward, ways to respond to I love you if you aren't quite ready to say it back yet!

1. ‘You have made my life so much better - it feels awesome now that you are in it!’


Verbalize how important their presence in your life is to you!

2. ‘Spending time with you is the best part of my day!’


Let them know that time spent with them is the part of your day you look forward to!

Just because you aren't ready to make the same declaration doesn't mean you don't deeply care for your partner.

4. ‘I think I could be in love with you too... One day, very soon!’


It's hopeful, it's cute, it's honest and it's playful!
