Study: Men First to Say ‘I Love You’

Written by Pat's Papers | Wednesday, 4 May 2011 11:27 AM


If you had to wager a guess about which gender says ‘I love you’ first in a relationship, where would you put your money? According to a new study, it’s men who often take the first leap. The Chicago Sun-Times says on average, men consider saying the three words almost six weeks before their partners do. Another interesting tidbit: men enjoy hearing an ‘I love you’ even if they have not had sex with their partner yet; women, on the other hand, prefer to hear the declaration after sex.  Experts say while the reasons for this harken back to our days in caves, it boils down to this: “he offers intimacy because he wants sex, and she offers sex because she wants intimacy.” Guess we are from different planets.
