Graham Ardner answers on Quora: It seemed an awfully big thing to say for only dating for six months. ‘There's no way you can love someone in six months,’ I thought. Then one day I got a text from her. ‘Graham, I got in an accident. Gotta go.’ I felt awful. I didn't know what was going to happen. Didn't know if she was ok. All day I couldn't think straight until we were able to talk. Amazingly the car was totaled but she had only bruises. A week later we were alone together. I couldn't hold it in any longer.
‘I gotta tell you something really serious. I can't bear the thought of you not knowing this.’
‘I love you.’
She looked very serious. I wondered if I made a huge mistake. Then she just grabbed me and hugged me as tight as she could.
Howie Reith answers on Quora: A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I were lying in my bed cuddling. There was a silent moment, so I used it.
‘Erin, I love you.’
She looked over at me wide-eyed, thinking she heard me wrong.
‘No you don't...it's the sex talking.’
I just replied ‘OK.’
Then she grabbed me and hugged me harder than she ever has before or since, for a long time. And I held her back.
Last night we were lying in bed together. It's been many months since I wrote this answer. I smiled and said ‘Erin.’
‘Well, no, not nothing. But you don't like it when I say that sort of thing.’
‘I think you should say it.’
‘I love you.’
‘I love you too.’
I teared up, rolled over and hugged her the way she hugged me.
Anirban Stifler answers on Quora: Rahul: ‘Priyanka, Anirban has something to say to you’
Everyone's staring at me now. I'm starstruck, nervous and caught off guard
Deborpito : ‘Say it to her man!’
Priyanka and her friends look at me in surprise wondering what's all the ruckus. I look at her nervously and say ‘I Love You’ at the speed of light, which was barely understandable. And right after I committed this act, I put my head down on my bench and hid my face in my arms in shame. Priyanka, amazed at my action couldn't make out what I said. She was confused. Then my friends and her friends told her that this guy just proposed to you. She was startled and said ‘I will ask my mom what to reply to this and give you my answer tomorrow’
Ashish Anand answers on Quora: One fine day, l was talking to my girlfriend on phone and conversation was about to end. (She had threatened me not to end the call without saying I love you)
Me: I love you
She: Who doesn't
Giggles and laughter followed and conversation continued for a long time after that.
P.S.: She did say I love you before ending the call
Apurv Ghosh answers on Quora: We were talking and suddenly I got a glimpse of her adjusting her hair behind the left ear. I was so mesmerized that I couldn't resist and whispered ‘I love you’ in her ears. She was taken aback and ran away, hiding from me as if she had seen a ghost. She ignored me for a week in the tuition classes too. I felt that probably I was friend-zoned or bro-zoned (She had earlier offered to tie rakhi on my hand, which I refused instantly and I am still referred to as ‘Jaime Lannister’). I had given up hope when I came to know that she had told a common friend about my proposal to her. The darkest hour is just before the dawn. The dawn arrived with the most beautiful smile and angelic eyes I had ever seen - ‘We can try this out’ she said.
