There may not be an exact right time to say I love you but how do you respond to someone who says the words when youre not ready to say them back? A late night AskReddit thread from yesterday asked just that. And of course I read it, because obviously the best place to go for relationship advice is a whole bunch of people sitting at their computers at two in the morning. Or something.
OK so technically the thread asked, Whats a nice way to respond to I love you without saying it back?, but lets face it: There isnt really one. Some responses are more entertaining than others, though; furthermore, if you have the kind of relationship where you dont need to verbally say the words to show that you do, in fact, love your partner, sometimes the best answers are the more creative ones.
So, the next time someone tells you that they love you, here are 10 alternate responses you can pull out of your back pocket in any situation :
1. The Surely Not!
Of course, then you might have to deal with a situation like this:
2. The Boop!
Id like to take this moment to note that this redditor goes by a name eerily similar to a certain other Carlos Danger I could mention
3. The Prim and Proper
Theres a time and a place for everything.
4. The Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Not going to lie: The misuse of hear instead of here kind of takes the romance out of this one for me because I am a grammar freak. But its the thought that counts, right?

5. The Han Solo
6. The Bullet Dodge
Ah, the old purposefully-misunderstood trick
7. The Lady and the Tramp
Im not really sure how youd manage this if you didnt actually happen to be sharing a plate of spaghetti and meatballs right at that moment, but never say never, I guess?
8. The Smooch
This is definitely an acceptable answer.
9. The Seinfeld
Theres a Seinfeld quote for every occasion.
Or, if you dont love the person back and you know it, you could just go with
10. The Truth
Honesty is still often the best policy.More like this
