Responses When You Don’t Love Them Back

Not all responses to “I love you” are positive. Sometimes we do not feel the same. But it doesn’t mean we should break other people’s hearts. Even refusal can sound respectfully and gently.

  1. “You are so brave. Saying that probably is not easy. But I can’t tell the same right now.”

  2. “That’s pleasant to hear, but I need some more time to say it’s mutual. I hope you understand.”

  3. “I would like to tell you I love you too, but I want to do that when I am 100% sure.”

  4. “Thanks, your words make me feel really good. I hope one day my words will do the same for you.”

  5. “Are you sure? How can people be sure about what they feel? Today, I can’t say the same.”

  6. “That’s a surprise for me. We have known each other for a couple of weeks and I’m not ready to say that I love you too. Give me time, baby.”

  7. “I never thought you could say so and never thought of you that way. But I’m glad you told me how you feel. Now, we will figure it out together.”

  8. “Already? Am I so beautiful? I’m sorry, I can’t say your feelings are mutual. And know I should not apologize, but I still want to. I like you, you are great, but I don’t want to lie.”

  9. “Thanks for being honest. But I can’t accept your feelings.”

  10. “Wow, that’s unexpected. I thought we are more of friends to each other. I need to think it over.”

How to Respond When They Say “I Love You” Over Text

Many are curious what to say when someone says “I love you” over text. The situation is quite the same, so all the variants above will be good.

Usually people confess their feelings over text because they are too shy to look at your eyes or too afraid of your negative reaction. So it’s absolutely normal. But you still can challenge them a little bit: you can say that you wait till the person tells you these words in person.

But if a person sends you just ILY, it’s not a confession. It’s good only when you have already confessed love to each other, and ILY is just another way to remind you of it.

Now you know what to say when someone says “I love you”. You will impress your significant other if you love back. And won’t break their hearts if the feelings aren’t mutual.
